The farm land is situated in Malheur County which is the second largest county in Oregon. The area is known for its prime agricultural growing land which commonly produces crops such as potatoes, sugar beets, and onions. The eastern Oregon landscape is also conducive to raising livestock with an abundance of range land to graze cattle or horses.
Besides the robust agricultural economy, Malheur County is a popular destination for outdoor recreation. Locals love to fish the waters of Malheur County’s many rivers which encompass the Malheur River, Owyhee River, Snake River and their many tributaries. Other fishing hotspots nearby include the Bully Creek Reservoir and Lake Owyhee State Park. Both recreational parks additionally offer opportunities for boating, watersports, RV camping, and hiking.
Vale, Oregon is a small community that lies along banks of the Malheur River where it converges with Bully Creek. Vale is a mere 75 miles northwest of Boise, Idaho so it is close to an airport, hospitals, shopping and entertainment. It acts as the county seat of Malheur County and is a common stop for travelers driving between western Oregon and the Boise metro area.
The region was a hub for travelers historically as well. Vale was a popular destination for trappers, missionaries and settlers that were journeying along the Oregon Trail. In fact, it was the first stop in Oregon for those making the trek along this famous trail. Vale has beautiful vibrant outdoor murals dispersed throughout the community that depict the journey of these Oregon Trail pioneers. Every year the Mural Society adds another hand painted piece to the collection enticing visitors to return. Another attraction celebrating its Oregon Trail heritage is the Keeney Pass Interpretive Site. The remarkable past can be also witnessed by the many historical buildings throughout the town such as the Rinehart Stone House, the Grand Opera House, the Vale Hotel and many others which were built at the turn of the 20th century.
Local attractions and events include the Malheur County Fair, the annual New Year’s Eve Fireworks Display, and the annual Vale Fire Department Crab Feed. One of the most exciting events to attend in Vale is the annual Oregon Trail Days Celebration held the week of July 4th which features a rodeo, car show, pie contest, and a lumberjack competition.
