My husband and I have moved to Elkton, Oregon from Detroit, Michigan this past June. We are currently on a farm that has sold and is due to close Nov 20th... we have until Dec 5 to move on to our new place. We are looking for at least 5 acres to build a permie food forest on, keep some milk goats, egg chickens,honey bees and run our small scale record label from. We currently live in a Tipi (which we love) but wish to build an earthen home and other structures like a barn, hen house... and storage buildings all from foraged and earthen materials. (aesthetics are very important to us and we pay close attention to detail in all of our building adventures.)

We would love to be within an hour of Portland or Eugene... Portland being our first choice. We are open to a land share option where we set up shop on part of someones acreage that they are not using or wish to develop in a permie style and, well... do just that for them. Develop a food forest, live off of the bounty it brings and in return for use of the land (in addition to improving their land) bring weekly "CSA" style boxes of goodies produced on the "farm". If things really got booming we would be open to taking our goods to market and sharing in the profits. I have my graduate degree in history and cultural anthropology. As of late, my research has been centered around pre-industrial domestic work from Victorian Britain. My husband is currently working towards a degree in sustainable living practices and ecological arts. Together we have been organic gardening and market gardening for 10 years. In Detroit we had a small urban market farm.

We also have some money to purchase some land and would be open to owner financing if the price for the perfect piece of property was just out of our reach. However we prefer barter over money exchange in the end. Hey maybe there is even room for a little bit of both... money exchange and barter... we are open.

If you know of someone or if that someone is you and you have the perfect piece of property that just needs a couple willing and able to do the work... please contact us! my email is or reply to this message or both! Time is ticking and we are itching to get going!

My dream is to own property along the Umpqua river! Just south of Elkton would be ideal for me

Best wishes!
I will suppress my every urge. But not this shameless plug:
