LAND: The land is 98.49 tax roll acres that is planted in an 80-acre Hazelnut orchard that is very well managed. The primary variety is Barcelona but 55 acres of the orchard were interplanted, in 2015 and ’16, with Jefferson’s. There are approximately 8 acres of open ground, 8 acres of timber and the balance is home-site. SOILS: The online Marion County Area Soil Survey indicates that the soils on the subject property are a mixture of approximately, 71% Woodburn silt loam (0-12% slope) and 7% Amity silt loam. Both the soils are Capability Class II soils. The balance is Concord and Woodburn silt loam (12-20% slope) and Wapato silty clay loam. These soils are capability Class III.
WATER RIGHTS: A search of the Oregon Water Resources Department records indicate that the subject property has a water rights certificate for 67.2 acres of water rights. The certificate, # 38363 has a priority date of May 9, 1966. Theses rights are from a well that is considered a tributary of Mission Creek. The seller indicates these rights have not been used for a number of years. All potential buyers are urged to seek the advice of a Certified Water Rights Examiner or the State of Oregon Water Resource Department regarding the continued use of these rights. DOMESTIC WELL: The well log indicates the domestic well was drilled in 1996 and flow tested at 40 gallons per minute.
This is a very well-maintained property. The older portions of the nut orchard have been “de-horned” and production from these portions are continuing to rise. The inter-planting of newer varieties assures ongoing production for the future. The home and out building are in excellent condition and are in a very attractive setting. There is also a small forest of Mature Douglas Fir, young Doug Fir and Sequoia that are in the steeper areas. This is a very nice farm. The care the current owners have shown it over the years is very evident.
