Soil Type / Quality:

Last soil test was 2007. Soil is loam. Garden area : pH = 6.42, salinity ECe dS/m = 0.25, P mg/kg = 136, K mg/kg = 474, N = recommended to add 2-4 lbs/1,000 sq ft. Field: pH = 6.63, salinity ECe dS/m = 0.1, P mg/kg = 40, K mg/kg = 109 recommended to add 40-60 lbs K2O/acre, N = recommended to add 7.5 - 12.5 lbs/acre.

Buildings and Structure Available for Use:

34' x 34' storage shed, garage. Starting to lay out the plans for a greenhouse - proposing 20' x 100' - calls for double-wall polycarbonate panels, with the long-term goal to test year-round production - considering options to capture solar heat in summer and use it during winter to keep greenhouse soil ~50 F. 2 game-fenced gardens - each ~ 25' x 55'.

Farm Equipment Available for Use, Sale or Lease:

For field: 2" handline impact sprinkler system w/ pump, risers situated to allow irrigation of entire field. Able to pipe water from this system into non-field areas/gardens for irrigation. 5' reverse tiller for tractor - but no tractor on property - tiller needs at least 30 hp for operation

Any Restrictions That Could Limit Use for Farming:

Due to my plans to buld a brewery, and dealing with the federal government on that process, no cannibis growing operation is possible. Hope to build toward a trust set-up with the property, so it stays in agricultural use. Also, ideally, would like to set up a program where the property/farm/businesses are used as a means to help treat people with PTSD/trauma, or assist immigrants who want to farm as they situate themselves in WA state.
