Minutes from Burnt Ridge Nursery and a few minutes more from Raintree Nursery, 15 min east of I-5, this could be a great situation for combined woodland/market garden cultivation on 5 acres. You'd have to like the smell of cows, however - this property is north of a rather sizeable dairy (1200 head). Lewis County has a fairly active permaculture community, and has decent access to Portland, OR (1.5 hours), Olympia, WA (1 hr), Tacoma WA, (1.5 hrs), and Seattle (2 hrs). Plus we are only 3 lots away - with our 10 acre homestead, food forest, orchard and all the permie bells and whistles ;) This property and house strikes me as ideal for an intentional community setup.
Lots of size on this lot, plus all the shop space...come build tiny houses! Cottage industry potential galore! Come be our neighbors!
