Seeking 5-10 acres to lease or purchase for farm and homesteading in Clark and Cowlitz

Description:

We are an established small farm in Clark County looking to expand our farmers market bulk produce operation. Our farm has been in business for 7 years and we grow a variety of produce while also creating value added products such as; salves, canned goods, crafts and woodworking projects. We also teach classes on farming and homestading through the Washington State University Extension Program.

Who I am and What I'm looking for:

We are looking for flat, farmable land that has usable space for a hoop house and other shop buildings. Our goal is to live and produce on this land to help support our local community.

Farming Experience:

7 years ago we started with a small CSA run from our lot in the city. This has expanded over the years with growing on other vacant lots in Clark County. 2 years ago I started working on a local farm to help them get started. This year I took over the entire farm to grow for local restaurants and the sell at the Vancouver and Salmon Creek Farmers Markets. We also have bulk sales to the 2nd Mile Food hub and Farm To Family.
