My husband and I seek fellow homesteaders to live in a 2-bedroom, 2-bath house on our 7-acre property, about 6 miles west of Beltline x Hwy 99 in west Eugene, Oregon (just south of the airport). The 1340 square foot house has a 2-car garage with a workshop area. The laundry room off the kitchen has an extensive pantry for canned goods storage. The house sits within a private fenced 1/4 acre, with an additional small private fenced vegetable garden. Its well has a strong flow of good (non-arsenic-tainted) water. The land has Class 2 Agricultural soil — its main limitation is its sogginess during winter. The local public schools are Meadow View and Willamette High School.

We live in another house on a back-to-back lot with this rental house. On the rest of the 7 acres I care for a milk cow, a steer and a calf (the number of bovines changes now and then), several domesticated turkeys as well as wild turkeys, and about 50-60 chickens. We have great crops of apples, pears, grapes, plums, raspberries and strawberries, all grown with no pesticides. The neighbors have sheep, occasional beef steers, and horses.

You could rent from us ($800 / month), or do work trade for some of the rent if you are a good fit for this situation. For the right people, we anticipate sharing the use of all 7 acres for homesteading projects. If this sounds like a possible good fit for you, please phone (541) 485-1699.

I hope you find someone!

It won't be me since I've set deep roots here already but I wish you the best. I'm responding so you're thread doesn't fall down the list and to suggest seeking out as many avenues as possible to get the word out. Do you know anyone with a database of permie-type people in your region who might share contact info. with you?

-Scott

Wow! This post was from forever ago but by the off chance this offer still stands or you would want to be friends I would be delighted!

Hi! Is this still relevant and are you open to a family with young children? Would there be the option of an animal farm on the maybe more land? Thanks.

I an the original poster, surprised to see there has been so much interest in this situation. The mentioned 2-bedrooom 2-bath house has long been rented out, but here is a tiny house on the property that we make available to WWOOFers on occasion. See the WWOOF-USA website
https://wwoofusa.org/about/
and search for "Peacock's Feast Farm" in Eugene, Oregon.

I found some pretty shells, some sea glass and this lovely tiny ad:
