We're in Spokane Valley and have a total of 1.4 acres. Because of the zoning, (corridor mixed use), right now our land could be used as a farm if the farm were used as a 'demonstration/learning/vocational' farm. We're looking into getting a variance for straight-up farming.
Right now we live on the land and keep a small vegetable garden, some flower gardens, and tend to several apple, cherry, and pear trees. We live in the main house which sits in between two parcels of about .5 acres each. One of the .5 acres has corral fencing. May have the option to provide housing.
The soil on the west side is ideal for farming. Very rich. The soil on the east side of the property is rockier, but we've been able to improve it with a lot of organic mulching.
A small tool shed, a small artist's shed (no plumbing), plus a very old chicken coup.
We have a rotatiller. We have several standpipes and access to water.
The zoning right now is for a learning center or multi-family, not farming per se, so this could be a demonstration/learning farm and housing added.
