Land Description:
We have a 10 acre homestead property located in the Puyallup valley near Orting WA. Available for lease, starting the 2023 season, is approximately 7 acres of agricultural land with some established rhubarb, raspberry, and black berry plants currently producing.
Year to year lease to begin, however we are interested in a longer term with annual negotiations and/or revisions. Fee depends on what and how much you lease.
Candidate needs to have good knowledge of and 5+ years of seasonal experience in farming (business plan with anticipated financial projections encouraged).
Farm has continuously been farmed and producing crops for over 50 years at this location.
Fertile, sandy loam soil that does not disappoint. Has been farmed conventionally in the past but borders on the edge of being able to become organic at any time.
Farm inventory: 2 large green houses, with water, power, and heat; a good size warehouse, store space, shop area, freezers, walk-in cooler, several covered areas and animal pens. Business/agricultural zoning with road access on three sides; easy access and parking.

Business activities allowed: Direct marketing/sales; CSA; wholesale; retail; farm store/stand; agritourism.

Possibilities; Many! Money can be made here by putting in the hard work; excellent community support.
We are retiring but will continue to keep a residence on site. We want to pass the torch, possibly mentor some, and see the land stay in production.
