Land Seeker Description

I’m a 37 year old man with no physical ailments and I want to own and run a small, sustainable farm somewhere west of the cascades, creating cheaper resource solutions for my family and nutritious food for the community. I’d like to begin the process by working on a larger established family farm and gain more experience by working each day to contribute to the success of the farm. If my dedication suits you, maybe I can become a partner or I can buy a few acres to manage on my own.


What features of the property are essential?

Enough water and good soil available to make the land feasible to farm, structures and electricity in place.


Describe your farming experience

I've lived on a small, 10 acre homestead/family farm with my wife's family for over a decade now, and in that time I've bred, raised, butchered & processed my own cows, we have a couple dozen chickens, and we have large raised-bed vegetable gardens every year. We hunt and process our own game each year. I worked as a produce manager for a few years so I can work a farmer's market easily, as a butcher for one year, and now I do finish work on newly installed manufactured homes. I plan to continue adding to my abilities with each experience.


Are you currently farming?

No

What are your short term goals for the land

Set up areas for gardening & growing marketable fruits and vegetables, maintain fencing and pens/coops for livestock & poultry, keep up with the seasons and the needs of the farm; transport, display and sell what we grow & raise at local farmer's markets and other venues.


What are your long term goals

Purchase 5-10 acres of my own to become more self sustainable.


Describe your housing needs

My wife and I live in a newer model travel trailer with an attached mudroom with a wood stove. We are happy where we are, but can live almost anywhere that hookups are feasible.
