Hey, so my husband and I are looking into buying property next year. Taking the huge leap! I have some experience with farms, and my husband does as well, but by no means are we totally prepared for this life choice. My husband would still work full time, but I will be devoting my time and energy into our farm/ranch. We are already planning to board/train horses, but are planning to purchase enough property to hopefully plant crops. Curious to people who live in Oregon- what area do you live (central, eastern, so on and so forth), and what crops do you grow or people in your area? I have looked into strawberries, corn, hay, and grass- all I know are big in the area I grew up. Also, which crops do you feel you break even with and which ones do you feel are more work with no real gain. Hay would be the ideal because we could benefit double from it, so if you grow hay what kinds do you grow and again what area of Oregon do you live in?
Thanks a bunch!!! Also, nothing is set in stone, this is just an idea. Please do not be harsh or mean about this, I am just asking questions, that is all. Please keep it friendly! Thank you again!
