As Oregonians, we appreciate our state’s rural heritage and the freedom that can only come from owning land. Homes on acreage define much of the northwest lifestyle and Clackamas County is no exception. For some, land means pastures, barns and stables while others see fields for crops or even just just a nice piece of land to stretch out on and raise a family. In the fast pace of 21st century life it’s often easy to lose sight of what really matters. Owning land is a chance for us to slow down a bit and reconnect with nature and enjoy outdoor activities. Whether you want horseback riding in Beavercreek, a horse or cattle ranch in Molalla, riding quads & dirt-bikes in Sandy, or fishing and hunting in Estacada you’ll be close to the action while feeling far from the city’s trouble in rural Clackamas County.
