Seeking to Purchase 30+ Acres


?

Land Seeker Description

I am looking to purchase land to farm and conserve for future generations. My family and I have a dream of building or taking over a farm to practice a biodiverse, sustainable way of farming to provide nutrient dense food for the community. We plan to have multiple operations, from beekeeping, to an orchard, to livestock. I have a degree in Landscape Technology from PCC and am in the process of acquiring my Horticulture degree from OSU. I am currently an irrigation technician.


What features of the property are essential?

Water rights, spring, running water (river, creek, etc.)some wooded


Describe your farming experience

I worked on Cornell Farm for three years and have a degree related in many ways to farming. My brother also worked on farms in Hawaii for a number of years.


Are you currently farming?

No

What are your short term goals for the land

To revitalize land that needs it or to continue building soil on land. Continuing existing operations and starting new ones that are beneficial to the ecosystem of the farm and business. Incorporating new buildings and beginning to restore forest is also in the plans.


What are your long term goals

To continue to grow to a self sustaining farm, trading with neighboring farms for products we may not have. Providing food for not only my family, but the community around the farm, including restaurants, families, and grocers.


Describe your housing needs

Temporarily we have an RV that we could live in. We would like to build our own home soon after arriving.
