Description:Looking to purchase or lease 5+ acres in Yakima and Benton County, open to Kittitas or any other Eastern WA county.
Couple looking for to purchase or lease 5+ acres in Yakima or Benton County. Looking for open ground, suitable for irrigated crops, or established tree fruit acreage or vineyard.
We are a young, generational farming couple looking to start our own farm because we love agriculture and the lifestyle that goes with it. My partner grew up on a family hop farm, whereas my family focused on wheat production. We both have formal educations in agriculture and production experience, knowledge in tree fruit, hops, vineyard, and row crops. We are incredibly flexible in terms of the right fight looking for any opportunity to buy or lease land (transitioning property, land share, land succession, etc.). Housing on-site is not a deal breaker, although we have enough capital saved in order to invest in livable infrastructure. We hope to eventually lease-to-own, however we're open to land availability in correlation with our operational growth goals.
Additionally, we have advanced knowledge of hop production (4+ years) and farm management. Experience in horticulture (apples and cherries), overseeing crews, harvesting, processing equipment and large equipment operation. Also have experience in row crop production (dry land and irrigated) and knowledge of farm business management. Our comprehensive crop plan incorporates start up costs, predicted yields, rotation planning, etc. as we are ready to break ground if the right parcel comes along.
