Runnymede Farm is a diverse, bio-intensive farm located in the beautiful Evans Valley, just outside the town of Rogue River, in our Rogue Valley Chapter. The land was a former Christmas Tree farm and now supports a good stand of Douglas Fir trees. The farm is operated by husband and wife team, Arthur and Teri. Together they have over 25 years of farming and marketing experience. Runnymede uses intuitive, intensive, chemical free, non-certified organic practices, borrowing from bio-dynamic, French intensive, and standard organic practices to produce a wide variety of crops on their 10 acres, including vegetables, fruit, berries, cut flowers, nursery plants, eggs, cow and goat milk, as well as occasional pork. They also produce a variety of value-added products such as dried fruit, jams, garlic braids, and ferments. Runnymede sells all their products locally, using farmers markets as well as on site milk, egg, and plant sales.

Interns or apprentices joining the crew at Runnymede can expect to be exposed to all tasks involved in operating a small-scale, diverse, mixed production farm. Those tasks will include animal husbandry (including milking and milk handling) and the planting, cultivation, harvesting, packing, and farmers market sales of produce, fruit, and nursery products. Additionally, there are a variety of farm-related construction projects here available for interns and apprentices to participate in, if they are interested.
