This is a bare land farm with no building improvements. Although it has been planted to orchard grass for many years it is currently in peas. There are two large vineyards and hazelnut orchards in the near vicinity which indicates that these potentially higher value crops may be possible on this property. Even though the land generally slopes north, full direct sun is available throughout the growing season. From the high point, Mt. Jefferson and Mt. Hood in the Cascade Range can be seen in this very scenic area. There is a Luckiamute Water District tap for domestic water on DeArmond RD near the east end of the property that could be accessed if establishing a homesite became possible.
