More about this land:
Ridiculous Ranch is on 5 acres of mostly forested land, there's usually a project going (or three). We've recently finished felling some of the southern facing fir trees to make space for our long term goal of a perennial food forest with fruit trees, berries and native edibles. We have 2 ducks who keep our garden slug population in check, (Bonnie & Clyde) they mostly hide out but you may hear them laughing, don't take it personally. No dogs or cats to worry about, just squirrel, birds, and the occasional wild turkey procession or coyote. There is a large garden, and when growing season is on, we may send you packing with some fresh greens or veggies! If you see us out and about, feel free to come say hello or ask questions. We love sharing good conversations and ideas about how to live well and stay excited about all things.
Veneta/Elmira are charming small rural towns with all the basics less than 10 min drive: Grocery Outlet, Bi-mart, Ace hardware, Auto parts, some decent restaurants. Fern Ridge Lake is 10 minutes down the road for walking trails, boating and paddling, plenty of other outdoor activities nearby. Eugene is 25 min, and the beautiful Oregon coast is 45 min drive if you want to smell the ocean air and visit Florence.
