On the average, there are about 159 sunny days per year. Average peak temperatures for summer are 70 to 80 degrees while winter’s mild average temperatures range from 30 to 50 degrees.

THE ESTATE FARM
Per the Benton County Assessor, the Frazier Creek Farm & Vineyard contains 143.28 assessed acres. The approximate breakdown of the acreage description is as follows:
FRAZIER CREEK ESTATE FARM & VINEYARD DESCRIPTION ACREAGE
Tillable Crop Lands-Grass Seed 99.70 Vineyard 4.00 Estate Home & Farm Site 6.51 Rental Homesite 0.65
Woodlands 32.42 TOTAL ASSESSED ACRES 143.28 (all acreages are approximate)
The Estate Farm’s tilled soils are predominately of excellent quality, capable of growing all crops common to the area (see detailed soils map attached). Over the years, the farm has been planted to various crops including peppermint and green peas. Excepting the vineyard, the farm is leased out on a cash- rent basis and is currently planted to Tall Fescue for seed production. The owner has a working agreement with the long-standing tenant farmer which allows the owner to reduce the acreage that is leased out, so that vineyard plantings can be increased. The owner personally oversees the management of the vineyards.
In 2016 the owner completed the planting of a 4+/- acre vineyard, which includes trellis and drip irrigation systems. The plantings include approximately 3 acres of Pinot Noir and 1 acre of Pinot Gris varieties. With the irrigation system in place, full production is anticipated in year 2.
The croplands can be irrigated from a well that is located north of the property. There is a 6” dia. buried mainline that extends from the well through the farm. When necessary to irrigate crops being grown by the tenant, the tenant has provided the above-ground, portable irrigation distribution equipment. The Tall Fescue grass seed crop belonging to the tenant is perennial and now that it is established, does not typically require annual irrigation. (For more details about Oregon irrigation water rights, see the Water Rights section below).
With the two rental homes and the cropland leased out, the following is the estimated current gross income of the Frazier Creek Estate Farm & Vineyard, without projecting any 2016 income from the vineyard:
PROPERTY TAXES: For the 2015 tax year, the property taxes are $10,342.57.
The portion of the farm property that is zoned EFU is in Farm Deferral Status. Many rural properties in Oregon are eligible for a special assessment or deferral of some or all of their property if it is "used for a qualifying farm use." This special assessment of the FRAZIER CREEK ESTATE FARM & VINEYARD Estimated 2016 gross income, without vineyard sales
Lease Description No. Units $/Unit Total $ Expires The Lodge House 12 Months 845 $ 10,140 $ 8/31/2016 The Caretaker's House 12 Months 1,234 $ 14,808 $ 7/31/2016 The Farmland 99.7 Acres 100 $ 9,970 $ 10/1/2019 Estimated 2016 Gross Income 34,918
Land reflects the value for agricultural productivity vs. other alternative uses that may justify a higher assessment. These programs have a potential tax payback if the farm production requirements discontinue to be met.

HISTORY OF THE VINEYARD:
The Frazier Creek Estate Farm & Vineyard, together with the adjoining Historic Elliott Equestrian Farm & Vineyard have been in the same ownership for about 30 years. At times, the two farms have hit a high in plantings of 33-34 acres. The first vines were planted in 1990: two clones of Pinot Noir, (Pommard & Waydenceville), along with 2 clones of Chardonnay (108 & Draper) and were marketed to King Estates, Eugene, OR in their reserve program and to Willamette Valley Vineyards, Salem, OR, also in their reserve program.
Over the years, additional varietals planted included: Pinot Gris, marketed to King Estates and Sass Winery, Eugene Wine Cellars; Marchel Foch, Syrah, Viogner and more Pinot Gris, marketed to Willamette Valley Vineyards, King Estates, Chateau Lorraine, Eugene, OR, Eola Hills Winery, Rickreal, OR and Seven Hills Winery, Walla Walla, WA.
Additional customers have included Tori Mor, Argyle, Benton Lane Winery, Sweet Cheeks Winery, Lake Oswego, OR, and Belle Valle.
Current plantings in production on the adjacent Historic Elliott Equestrian Farm & Vineyard include Pinot Noir (clone 115) and Pinot Gris. These, along with the new plantings on the Frazier Creek Estate Farm & Vineyard, will be marketed to Dobbes Estate.
There is plenty of room to expand the existing Vineyard!!
The flyway for duck and goose in this region is famous to hunters throughout America. The concentrations of birds and opportunity to hunt them is almost limitless. The farm fields are likely to attract many migrating geese, or you can set up right at the farm’s own duck pond!
The presence of deer, elk, and other big game is also a draw to the area. The close proximity to the Coast range and the Cascade Range affords an outdoorsman’s paradise with more area to fish and hunt and less people to contend with.
Wildlife common in this area would include duck, geese, turkey, deer, elk, quail, coyote and more. It is rich and lush, and nearby forests and mountains sustain large herds.
Enjoy fishing right on the farm! The pond has been stocked with rainbow trout and catfish! Additionally, area fishing opportunities are renowned for trout, steelhead, salmon and even tuna! The famed Oregon Coast, with its Pacific Ocean fishing for salmon and tuna, is just 55 minutes west of Corvallis. The Willamette River courses through the entire Willamette Valley and is just minutes away. The Columbia River, famous for its salmon and sturgeon fishing is just 1 ½ hours north, near Portland. The nearby Alsea River, less than an hour from the farm, is well known as a productive fly fishery for steelhead! The McKenzie River, just about an hour southeast of the farm, is a world-renowned fly fishery for native rainbow trout and steelhead. Drift boats are the most popular way to fish the McKenzie! For the avid fisherman, it is hard to imagine a more central location to be!
If the idea of downhill and cross country skiing on Mount Hood and snowmobiling in the Cascade Mountains is your idea of winter heaven, then Oregon is the place for you. Willamette Pass, Hoodoo and Mount Hood and Mount Bachelor are all within 2 to 3 hours’ drive from Corvallis.
With hiking, biking, rock climbing and water sports, Oregon is blessed with more recreation and adventure than one can image!
Mary’s Peak is a local favorite and is Benton County’s highest point. Just 45 minutes from Corvallis, Mary’s Peak has endless breathtaking panoramic views. On a clear day one can see the Pacific Ocean to the west and the Cascade Mountains to the east.
You name it and it’s in Oregon! With trail and pleasure riding, rodeos, hunter jumper, dressage, and endurance competitions, you will never run out of equine activities for you and the whole family to enjoy.
EACH OF US AT FAY RANCHES HAS A LOVE OF THE LAND AND A DESIRE TO SEE IT REMAIN AS PRODUCTIVE AGRICULTURAL GROUND AS WELL AS QUALITY FISH AND WILDLIFE HABITAT. THROUGH PROMOTING THE USE OF THOUGHTFUL LAND STEWARDSHIP, FAY RANCHES HAS GUIDED OWNERS TOWARD A LEGACY OF CONSERVING WIDE OPEN SPACES, ENHANCING AND CREATING FISHERIES AND WILDLIFE HABITAT AND IMPLEMENTING SUSTAINABLE AGRICULTURAL OPERATIONS. FAY RANCHES IS PROUD TO SAY THAT SINCE OUR COMPANY BEGAN IN 1992, THE LANDSCAPE ON WHICH WE WORK HAS BEEN SIGNIFICANTLY ENHANCED BY THE CONSERVATION ETHIC AND LAND USE PRACTICES OF OUR CLIENTS. For additional protection from urban development, the owners have placed a conservation easement on a large portion of the property. The .65-acre lot that is within the Urban Growth Boundary (UGB) of the City of Corvallis and is zoned Urban Reserve-5 is not encumbered by the conservation easement.
Under Oregon law, all water is publicly owned. With some exceptions, cities, farmers, factory owners and other users must obtain a permit or water right from the Water Resources Department to use water from any source, whether it is underground, or from lakes or streams. Landowners with water flowing past, thru, or under their property do not automatically have the right to use that water without a permit from the Department. The waters of Oregon are administered by the State of Oregon under a “prior-appropriation” doctrine; first in time, first in right.
As needed, the farm has been irrigated from a well via a buried 6” diameter pipeline delivery system to a portable distribution system. The portable distribution system is the property of the farming tenant and is provided, as his farming practices mandate. The farm can be irrigated under a permit granted by the Oregon Department of Water Resources. The owner has recently filed a Claim of Beneficial Use for 103.7 acres of the farm. The application is in process and will likely take several years to process.
All of the property mineral rights available and owned by the Seller are included in the offering.
