Located on Highway-6 near Banks, this historic farm was known as “Prune Hill”. I acquired this beautiful property from Parson family heirs about 10 years ago, cleared most of the acreage as it had not been farmed in the last 80 years or so, planted a hazelnuts orchard (Jefferson) in about 10 acres in phase-1, purchased a John Deere 55 HP, and started the operations with big enthusiasm. Unfortunately, due to personal health/family reasons, I had to take my attention away, and currently the farming operations are quite neglected. That’s where I need your help – as a green thumb, partner, lessee or some other creative arrangement.
The land is beautiful, historic, and has tremendous potential from all angles. Little Beaver Creek (about 5 ft wide, year around water) logically divides the farm into two parts. Either side can form an excellent equestrian facility too. Otto Parson’s vintage homestead built probably 250 years ago or os, in lying gutted. Washington county will permit building owner’s homestead, and a manager’s quarters anywhere on the property. There is an animals barn with an overhead water tank and some of the hand casted valves from the 1900 still work! Two old wells on site predate the Oregon Water Master. Siemens electric water pump from 1937 reminds of the robustness of the vintage AC motor technology…. stunning sunsets, star gazing, meteor showers… it is a little paradise with its own micro climate.
Cleanup --> Build out the basic infrastructure required for the farm operations including tube wells, septics and plantation layouts --> Seed the first crops --> Build out the owner's homestead and farm manager's quarters --> reap the first crops --> finalize the plans for the long term operations.
A vibrant self-sustainable farm generating employment and happiness for the local community.

Water master would allow two tube wells on the property; however the rights needs to be reapplied.
