Beautiful farmland with everything you dreamed of having.
* 67 acres on 4 separate tax lots. (Note that craigslist won't let me enter 2.9M sq ft but this is 67 acres).
* Zoned A2 for long term agriculture use (see below)
* New water well producing 45 gal/min
* Electric is installed and running from Gray's Harbor power company
* Beautiful, rich pasture land with grasses that grew 7 feet high last year. Rough estimates of about 75% pasture, 10% trees, 15% water (river, streams, ponds, wetlands).
* River frontage from Chehalis River spanning the entire property, one section is like sandy beach for recreation. Property spans both sides of river in some spots. River moves up and down with the tides but salt water ends before the farm. Salmon, trout, seals, beavers, and many other aquatic animals share the river.
* Streams and ponds coming from nearby forest and hills. Some wetlands provide diversity.
* Adjacent to Weyerhauser land that stretches for 100's of miles. Permits are available for access to vast forest from Weyerhauser. The forest, hill and river arrangement creates amazing acoustics for your events.
* Almost to end of dead-end street for great privacy
* In unincorporated Gray's Harbor county only, not any city for lower costs and greater privacy.
* Salmon fishing when salmon come up the river in October and other times
* Abundant duck and geese hunting in season. Neighbor used farm for duck hunting and said he reached his limit ever time.
* Natural or organic ready
* Property is in a farming flood area that gets rich nutrients from Olympic mountains
* Structures include paddock, entrance gate, some fencing (would need repairs for livestock), water well, gravel driveway, and platform/stage for bands or events.

Property would be perfect for homesteading, permaculture, farming, ranching, livestock, recreation, or all of the above.
Listed for $195,000

Note: This property will be offered for a limited time only. We are also considering a permaculture community or long term lease of the land or this sale. Whichever approach comes first or best will be pursued.

What a thorough, comprehensive and permie-geared description, Mark! I added your post to the permaculture real estate and blatant advertising forums, too.

I live in the next county over from where this property is. If anyone is interested in seeing this from out of town, you are welcome here in my newly converted 2-story bus to stay overnight and perhaps take me with you! Have been searching for just the right land but this is a bit larger than can be handled by one person.

If anyone is seriously interested in this property, I am a seasoned permaculture entity who has plenty of extremely useful skills, items of asset as well as professional assets to add to this mix if anyone wishes to build an intentional community or desire to market their work.

The particular topography isn't exactly my cup of tea and the improvements take it outside my price-per-acre tolerance zone, but I definitely hope somebody on here snaps this place up. We need more permie farms in the area.

Hi Mark,

This is very close to what we're looking for. Take a quick look at this thread http://www.permies.com/t/56993/intentional-community/Seeking-minded-souls-Permaculture-paradise and send me a message if you'd like to talk more.
