Description

Historically, Eagle Valley (Richland) has been a virtual cornucopia of food production: dairy, creamery, sheep/wool, fruit cannery; recently has become predominantly cattle and hay. There is a burgeoning wine grape movement with a nearby winery. Baker City is becoming a mecca for artists and artisanal breweries. Property prices are still low for the value. Friendly, generous, big-hearted community. Easy year-round climate, no pollution!
