The National Park Service extended the deadline by four weeks for responses to a Request for Proposals, or RFPs, for awards of up to three agricultural leases on park service-owned lands within Ebey’s Landing National Historical Reserve.

The new deadline for proposals is Oct. 24, 2019. Responses to questions received by the July 23 deadline were posted publicly.

The facilities available for lease include 222 acres of cropland and 131,000 square feet of facilities from a former dairy.

Proposals must be received by the Pacific West Regional Office, sent to the attention of Commercial Services Manager, 333 Bush St., suite 500, San Francisco, CA 94104, by 4 p.m. Pacific Time on Oct. 24 in order to be evaluated and considered for award of a lease.

Offerors are welcome to submit proposals for all three lease opportunities, but must submit a discrete proposal for each lease for which the offeror is submitting a response.

The RFP and the questions and responses are available on the farm leasing page online at
