Move To An Independent Lifestyle

Have you been mulling over the idea, the possibility of living off your own land? I have an opportunity for you in Salem, Oregon. The nearly 30 acres of south-facing and sloping land contains one of the most productive soil types – Nekia soil, that wonderfully deep, well-draining soil suitable for crops, orchards and vineyards so prominent in the Willamette Valley.

Paved driveway to barn and house

This country property contains a small creek and pond with well water servicing the water needs of the owners. It has a grape arbor below the house and 20 acres in leased hay production. The three-stall barn has room for additional stalls. The five bedroom house is set up for dual living with complete kitchens and living spaces on both floors. The daylight basement with patio and the upper floor with a deck offer spacious views of the land and allow sunlight to bathe the interiors.

Consider the extent of self-sustainable living possible on this country property. A large garden could produce a wide variety of vegetables and fruits. Planted with seeds developed specifically for the Willamette Valley by Territorial Seed Company, your garden could deliver fresh produce year round. The grape arbor could be expanded to be an actual vineyard for personal wine production. The barn could be further developed to contain areas for livestock and chickens. Goats are very manageable on smaller spaces and produce delicious milk as well as meat or fiber for spinning.  Chickens, those fascinating and entertaining fowls, will give you plenty of eggs and meat.

The manure from your livestock can bolster the garden with nutrients. New solar power panel technology from manufacturing plants in Hillsboro and North Portland, Oregon could offer you an opportunity to go off the grid and extend your independent lifestyle. Rain barrels are sold locally for gathering that liquid sunshine the valley is so famous for. In bartering with local businesses and neighbors, you could enjoy more fully that sense of community as well as the camaraderie of mutual support.

Consider the possibilities of enriching your life through a more independent lifestyle, even sharing the property with a second family unit, and let me show you the house and land that is available. The potential here is enormous and waiting for your ideas to develop it.  Inquire about this amazing mini farm in South Salem Oregon today.
