I am considering moving to SW Oregon with the intent of living out the rest of my life and start a business serving the food industry specifically Organic Heirloom Tomatoes, Peppers, Edible Flowers and Cultivated Mushrooms. I've seen info about Ashland's Farmer Markets at which I would also market these items.

I'm interested in hearing what everyone has to say about my intent. Where would be the best area to live, I would need an acre or less for the vegetables and would need to be close enough to the markets to make the business work.

I'm a nature buff and pretty much an environmentalist, I love critters, so I would also like to be close to areas with flora and fauna.

Thanks

Sure, you could do that here, but near Ashland, the RE prices might straighten (or curl) your hair. We like those sort of things.

I would look near Medford or Phoenix, OR.

Best of luck!

I would say both are pretty expensive, actually. A lot of hobby farms by exurban migrants with big bucks in both those areas. It is more affordable closer to Phoenix/Medford.

The area around Roseburg in the Umpqua Valley is where the real values remain.

compared to southern oregon,
roseburg, umpqua have dreadful weather, constant rain 9 months of the year.

looks like utah, nevada, and rio rancho, new mexico are cheaper places to find property compared to oregon

i had thought that oregon had lots of CHEAP land, and that THIS was the reason for the exurban migrants

are you saying that oregon now has lots of EXPENSIVE land, and that THIS is the reasons why exurban migrants are now RICH ????

The last time Oregon had cheap land was about 1870. Most land in Oregon is owned by the BLM or the Forest Service, reducing the amount of private, purchasable, land quite significantly.
