I realize this is a complete long shot but thought I'd give things a try here. I'm helping a friend who wants to support the homesteading/organic farm movement. They have around $3.5 million to spend on a nice Oregon-based homestead/organic farm/something else really cool. They don't want to be a hands-on investor—they literally want to purchase something that might one day be amazing (with your help).

If it's something significantly less than that amount, it really won't work. Ideally, it needs to be around 3.5 million. Strange situation, I know, and I realize this probably sounds like complete spam but I assure you it's not (it's for a 1031 exchange if you've ever heard of that). I've gone through MLS and farmsandland.com and landwatch.com and every other place I can find that might list something in this realm. I've run out of options and am hoping one of you may know of something in Oregon that someone might be willing to sell AND with someone who might be willing to work the land and make it something special.

Any of you permies of anything? Many thanks for any ideas!
-John

My friends Bryan and Terrah have 10 acres near Wolf Creek Oregon. They are trying to develop it into a retreat and healing center with a Permaculture farm where all the food and medicine is grown for the participants and the residents.9 It’s also envision as a place that people can re-integrate after their healing experience by working on the property and living in community. It’s a great vision. They have a lot of old Infrastructure and a driveway that needs a lot of work. 3.5 million would go a long ways. Let me know and I will put you in touch.

You might send your friend to Clatskanie. There's some really interesting stuff going on there that could use more financial backing. Have them try to get in touch with "The Wild Locals" who also run "Cedar Farm".

I found a couple of leads. Thank you very much. I'd delete this topic if I knew how to avoid confusion but I think I got the information I need.

Hey John, I’m aware of a few large degraded ranch properties in Oregon that would be wonderful permaculture/ regenerative farming opportunities. Let’s connect
 
They worship nothing. They say it's because nothing is worth fighting for. Like this tiny ad:
Switching from electric heat to a rocket mass heater reduces your carbon footprint as much as parking 7 cars
