Seeking to purchase, 5-20 acres, north central oregon,


Land Seeker Description

We have been raising purebred Oberhasli since 2013, and dairy goats in general for almost 20 years. The purebred Oberhasli in particular are a threatened heritage breed. Our animals are tested clean, productive, and thriving. Life changes are moving us from Arkansas to oregon, and the goats are part of the package. We would also like to raise bees again, and grow fruits and vegetables.

What features of the property are essential?

Barn with electricity, access to water for the animals, somewhere for the humans to live.

Describe your farming experience

My husband grew up homesteading in Idaho, and I have a biology degree which I use daily in my farm practices. Between us we have 30 years combined experience.

Are you currently farming?


What are your short term goals for the land

Establish a customer base for the dairy and produce

What are your long term goals

Grow the herd to continue to be hardy and genetically diverse with the use of AI and selective live breeding.

Describe your housing needs

3 bed, 1.5 bath. I am also an artist and would need a studio space

What will you do as a farmer to ensure a safe and welcoming environment for everyone on your farm and in your community?

Not be a racist ass, which coming from Arkansas I know people will be skeptical of. But it’s one of the reasons we are leaving. It’s not safe here for my queer siblings, and definitely not safe for BIPOC. I want to create a safe space for everyone.
