Tillable Farm Land Hood River County, Parkdale/Odell area preferred


Land Seeker Description

We are a small but growing business that grows and supplies cutflower farmer around the US with plant products to grow. We need to expand our operation and are looking for more land to grow cut flower root stock. For example we would like to find somewhere in the Parkdale/Odell Oregon region to plant peonies, daffodils, and other perennial root stock as well as some propagatable annuals such as dahlia tubers.  Looking in the Parkdale/Odell region due to climate, soil, and growing conditions for our flowers.

We pretty much have all of our own equipment or have access to what we need. Looking for some good sandy loam with easy access and water available.

We’re quiet (except for the tractor) and clean and will leave the land better than we found it. Not looking for a mentor, just some land to farm.

What features of the property are essential?

Tillable soil. water rights or water access or onsite well. Sandy loam would be preferable. A barn or out building would be useful but not necessary. Open to many different opportunities as long as there is good soil and access to water.

Describe your farming experience

I'm 43 years old and have lived on a farm for the majority of my life. Soil is always under my finger nails. I have a wife and our 2 young boys 6 & 8 that are learning how to work. I have a crew of 3 young ladies, 1 young man, and a couple retired old ladies that work for/with me. I use a variety of day labor from my local high school when we need extra help. I have partners in the the commercial flower growing business that I lean on for support when needed. However we are a pretty self sufficient efficient running crew.

What are your long term goals

Describe your housing needs

I do not need a house. Occasional onsite camping or overnight parking may be useful if we are working on the property for a weekend or a couple of days to cut down on commuting but not a mandatory need.

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

As a person I'm not concerned about color or creed. I'm concerned about growing crops. If someone wants to work, not just earn a paycheck they are most welcome to join our team regardless of what they look like etc.
