Young Family looking to build an Organic, Sustainable Farm


?

Land Seeker Description

Hello,

My name is Anne and my partner, Dylan, and our two year old daughter, Piper, are looking for an opportunity to build and farm a small scale, organically certified, sustainable farm. We would like to see bees, goats, chickens, a large garden, and potentially mushrooms and some other small projects come to fruition.

We ideally would like to be in the Hood River area or somewhere in proximity to Portland, so we can travel for farmer’s markets, as well as, enjoy an art and museum scene with our daughter in our time away from the farm.

Thank you for your time.

Electricity, water, and storage would be a great start!
