We currently own 55 acres on the Samish River in Skagit County for over 30 years. We have had herds of cows and flocks of sheep. We have converted some of the acreage to conservation land. My aging grandfather can no longer handle the land; I took over with my family last year. It is our homestead and we follow permacultural sustainable practices. We have pastures with a horse and 2 calves. We want more animals. We have an area to grow food ready to be worked. There is a 100 year old barn and access to water and power.
The farm and homestead have been around for over a hundred years. There is so much potential! We want to see it become something of function and beauty. Native plants working in symbiosis with the land and resources. No monoculture, but a variety of things growing to benefit each other. We have plans for a greenhouse and outbuildings. We want to restore the barn to its previous prestigious glory. We will eventually use the land for education and low volume production.
We are looking for someone to love the land like we do. It really does take a village to succeed and we need people that want to learn and live off the land to help our property become something amazing. It is a slice of paradise and anything grows here. Everything is green. There is a ton of potential, but with me starting an educational program and local goods business, we cannot handle the land, family, and everything else in between! We are not looking for payment to work on our land, and we will give free reign to a degree. All we ask in return is if you are growing something, we can use the area for educational purposes and a small percentage of goods you grow. We also have interest of building a living unit on the property for the right individual to stay longer term to be closer to the land.
We are using it for private homestead permaculture and animals.
Water rights for river, pond or lake access
Sandy loam with old river bed, some clay and great top soil from previous pastured herds.
A barn and limited homestead amenities as needed.
We are currently looking for a tractor. We have small equipment, trailers, and a variety of tools.
