Carolina West Orchard , Oregon
Property Types: Vacant Land, Farms
Welcome to Carolina West Orchard!
With 36+ tillable/farmable acres, combined with water rights from the Talent Irrigation District, the opportunities are endless for your future or expanding agribusiness. The current irrigation system for the orchard is delivered via buried mainlines with solid set sprinklers throughout the orchard (buyer to do due diligence on present condition). The majority of the property has Manita Loam soils, with around 54% being Class III and 41% being Class IV. The remaining 5% are Class II Ruch Silt Loam. These soils would make an excellent vineyard, as evidenced by numerous vineyards being in close proximity to the property. The property is also suitable for irrigated row crops such as hemp. The topography is varied and includes some level areas which are great for machine harvesting, to rolling areas which provide natural drainage. There are two Orchard-Rite wind machines that are included with the property as well as a diesel irrigation pump. 3-phase power is also on-site.
The property is comprised of four separate tax lots zoned Exclusive Farm Use. While there is currently no homesite associated with the property, the property may qualify in the future by meeting the income requirements associated with the zoning (buyer to do their due diligence regarding any potential homesites). The property offers several great potential building site locations that capture the views, with orchard and vineyards in the foreground and mountains in the background. The current zoning allows for the construction of agricultural support buildings for equipment, product storage, farm office, and more. A farm manager’s dwelling may also be permissible (buyer to complete due diligence on all new potential land use changes). The property is accessed via two private, gravel easements: one off of Beeson Lane and one off of Wagner Creek Road. There is also easy access to I-5 as well as the Rogue Valley International Airport.
