This Lake County Oregon Organic Farm has great water sources from one large producing irrigation well and Antelope Creek. Both water sources fill a private reservoir below the main house which has 3 buster pumps servicing the three valley irrigation pivots. There is also an in-line buster pump running the wheel lines. This organic hay farm produces between 800 to 1200 tons of hay annually which is mostly alfalfa. The farm has been certified organic since 1999 through Oregon Tilth (OTCO). The owners also lease out pasture to a neighbor which uses approximately 355 AUM’s.
The improvements are in great shape which include a 500 ton hay shed, very nice metal horse barn that has 5 stalls, tack room with concrete floor & hot water heater, horse washing station and hay storage area. There is an additional area used for storage that could be converted into a couple more stalls. The shop is pole construction with concrete floor and oversized door to get large equipment in.
The custom built home sits on the edge of the irrigation reservoir that has large mouth bass & crappie fish. The home is still under construction but the owners have spared no expense with floor heat that comes from the Bosch well water heat exchanger plus a woodstove. The kitchen has custom oak cabinets, granite counter tops, high end Wolf appliances including steamers, induction stove & ovens. There is a large pantry with wine coolers and an island for extra counter space to prep food. The family room & dining area is part of the great room concept with large open wood beams, great rock work around wood stove & lots of windows for a panoramic view of the farm & reservoir.
The master suite has a walk-in shower & closet. Double sinks, heated towel racks & marble floor. This custom built home has many extras which a person will need to view in person to truly appreciate.
The property is only 12 miles from Lakeview Oregon on a paved county road.
This is a property with good wildlife viewing, good hay production and nice improvements.
