This 205+ acre productive row crop farm is nestled on the banks of the Owyhee River. Located between Nyssa and Adrian which are rural farm and ranch communities in Eastern Oregon in Malheur County. Ontario, Oregon, Caldwell, and Nampa, Idaho are all 30-45 minutes away. The Boise airport is just over 1 hours drive. Rich in agriculture, the area also offers recreation opportunities on and off the property. One of the greatest places in eastern Oregon to recreate is in the Owyhee Canyonlands close by.
A wonderful farming opportunity with a total of 114 ± acres irrigated. The irrigation water rights are from the Owyhee Irrigation District, which offers some of the lowest water costs in the area. The water is currently being put on via gated pipe (not included with sale). However, it can also be irrigated via the existing cement and dirt ditches. Additionally, it could be converted into sprinkler irrigation with minimal power cost, as the water is delivered pressurized.
Furthermore, the USDA rates the ground as “Prime Farmland”. According to USDA maps, soils are mostly Kimberly fine sandy loam and Powder silt loam. Crops grown in the area include onions, beans, corns, potatoes, hay, seed, sugar beets, and more. Currently, the row crop land is rented to a local farmer for $300/acre for 2022 season.
The remaining acreage lays along both sides of the Owyhee River with lots of wildlife, hunting, fishing, and recreation available. In addition, a levee along the river helps direct floodwaters and is a good road base for interior roads. A deposit of gravel in the northwest corner can be used for interior roads and projects on the property.
Featuring over 1.4 miles of Owyhee River frontage with land laying on both sides of the river for approximately 1/2 mile of that frontage. There are trees and other wildlife habitats along the river providing great cover for both deer and birds. Deer like to frequent the hilly area with a tree-lined draw in the SW corner. Also there are upland and waterfowl birds, turkey, other wildlife, and fishing possibilities from the river access. Upriver, in the canyons on your way to the Owyhee Dam, the waters are known for World Class Brown Trout.
