Hi folks! I live in the Portland Metro area and am ready to find( and hopefully buy) local land to get my farm started, about 5-10 acres. I’ve been browsing sites like LandWatch, Lands of America, Zillow, Redfin etc but am wondering if there are better resources that could connect me directly to organic farmers who are ready to sell their farms, or maybe someone who would be open to letting my partner and I use their property to live and farm, possibly in exchange for a part of the harvest.
I’m passionate about sustainable agriculture and healthy food, have studied permaculture and researched homesteading, and am aroused to start( and blog about) a small business that ethically serves people and planet while getting me out in the clay every day! Any results are appreciated!
