25-acre Homestead

Corvallis, Oregon USA

25 acre homestead built around a “village center” focusing on hazelnut production and wildlife habitat.

 

Challenge:

Create a working farm and homestead while preserving and improving wildlife access and corridors.

 

Solutions:

The Village Center is focused around animal areas and a duck pond.  Contour gardens flow down to the edge of a slough where wild birds flock and nest in the timber and shelter belt trees.  The design involved research into conventional Hazelnut production with help from the late Jeff Olsen (R.I.P.).
