The land consists of 15.47 Certified Organic tax roll acres, level to gently rolling topography, and 185 ft of Santiam Hwy frontage. A packed gravel access road bisects the farm, with fields to both sides. The farm layout is organized for annual vegetable and fruit production with 2″ irrigation risers at regular intervals and North/South production blocks. Exceptional sun exposure and deep soils, as well as a small wooded section in the Northeast corner of the property. Over 100 mature plum and apple trees occupy approximately 2 acres of the total 13 acres of arable ground. SOILS: The soils are predominately Capability Class I Malabon Silty Clay Loam (36%) and Class II Salem Gravelly Silt Loam (64%). These soils are well-drained and classified as prime farmland capable of supporting a large number of crops typically grown in the Willamette Valley.
At the front of the property sits a 1728 sqft. metal-clad pole barn with a sturdy office loft, break room, heavy concrete floor, two large roll-up doors and two 8×12 walk-in coolers. A second 864 sqft. equipment shed/shop sits central to the property and adjacent to the access road. This metal-clad building has one big equipment bay, ample built-in heavy-duty shelving for tools and parts storage, and an enclosed storage room with a rustic wood floor. An additional shed roof extends off the South side of this building for equipment and material coverage. The irrigation system consists of a buried 3″ mainline, 2″ risers, a 10hp well pump, and new (2012) cycle stop (constant pressure) valve. All 2″ handline pipe and fittings go with the property. Five production hoophouses, sizes 30’x90′, 30’x80′, three at 20’x90′ (with new plastic in 2015), and one 17’x55′ propagation house, all with overhead sprinkler irrigation, are included in the sale.
