Our wooded farm is located on the edge of Cove, Oregon at the base of Mt.Fanny. Our farm is a working, family farm. We raise produce and a few animalsfor ourselves, our community, and the region.

We love to welcome visitors to the farm and experience farm life for a fewdays. We also love introducing folks to our beautiful region.  

The Tiny House: We offer a tiny house for rent that has a full size bed for two people. A kid can sleep on a pad on the floor (2 if you don't mind a squeeze.) Older kids or additional adults can stay in our homemade tear drop camp trailer (aka the guest room) adjacent to the tiny house.

The tiny house is rustic and small and full of light. It has electricity and is heated with wood. There is "running water" out of an old-fashioned crock that we fill from the spigot outside. It is outfitted with a gas cook stove, fridge, plenty of wood, and a fully outfitted kitchen. The composting toilet is outside. There is access to a shower, an office for remote work, and wifi in another building on the farm.

The tiny house is located next to a creek surrounded by oak and ponderosa pine trees. It has views of the woods and our pastures.

Staying in the tiny house is an experience somewhere between camping and normal life. We don't call it glamping since it isn't glamorous--it is rustic.We know it isn't for everyone, but we love the tiny house like a member of our family. It kept us warm, dry, and happy for eight years before we built our farm house. If you like unique experiences, you don't mind building a fire, and you don't mind using an outhouse, then you'll love it, and we'll love to have you as a guest.

The Farm: Our family farm is focused on produce production and we have a menagerie of animals. We love showing folks around the farm and letting you experience farm life.

Our farm is wooded and hosts a lot of wildlife including foxes, deer, raccoons, hawks, song birds, quail, pheasants, and we are especially proud of the five species of owls that live here seasonally.

At the drive to our farm is our self-serve, honor-system farmstand that sells local produce, eggs, baked goods and coffee roasted right here on the farm.

 

The Area: We live on the Native lands of the Cayuse, Umatilla & Walla Walla past and present and honor with gratitude the land itself and its people.

The farm is located on the west side of the Wallowa mountains in the Cop Copi or Grande Ronde valley--one of the largest round valleys in the world. We are 8 miles from the Moss Springs trailhead into the Eagle Cap Wilderness and within 30 minutes to an hour drive of many other trailheads into the Wallowa, Elkhorn, and Blue mountains.

From our farm you can easily access cross country, resort & back country skiing, mountain & road biking, hiking, birding, and Hot Lake hot springs for the day. We are 10 minutes from historic Union, 30 minutes from La Grande, and 45 minutes from Baker City and Pendleton. We are about two hours from Wallowa Lake.

What we can offer you: Farmer Nella Mae Parks and her husband Michael Hatch are outdoor and nature enthusiasts. We love helping folks plan their trips, see and appreciate northeast Oregon regardless of your previous experience in the outdoors. We are very tied into our community and can recommend hikes, bike trails, white water, gear rental options, vistas & sites, restaurants, and more depending on your interests.

Nella Mae runs the farm and Hatch is the director of the Outdoor Adventure Program at Eastern Oregon University in La Grande. He can recommend outdoor activities and also rent gear to the public through the OAP.

Nella Mae is a horseback riding enthusiast and visiting horses are welcome at the farm. They must be vaccinated and respect electric fences.

Tours & Classes: With advance notice, we can arrange a multi-farm tour around Union County or provide a gardening, food preservation, art, or baking class. We also teach folks western swing dance.

 

We kindly request:

As we have farm dogs, wildlife, and livestock, we require all visiting dogs, regardless of size, to stay on a leash at all times.

Please visit the greenhouses and livestock with someone from the farm.

Please park off the driveway.

Please ask questions, let us know what you need, and let us help you if you're having trouble.

Looking forward to seeing you!

Sincerely, Nella Mae & Hatch
