Activities & Amenities
Hull Pear Orchard is one of the most productive properties of it’s kind in the region, with a combination of great water resources, highly productive loam soils, and ease of access. Located in the beautiful and temperate Rogue Valley of southwestern Oregon, Hull Orchard is situated on 149 gross acres with three tax lots.
Nearly the entire property has irrigation, with 148 total acres of water rights and a maximum allotment of 655 acre feet. Irrigation water is delivered by a private irrigation canal directly from the Rogue River, and has multiple irrigation pump stations with three-phase power. Additionally, there are two ponds totaling approximately 2-surface acres in size.
The property has high quality loam soils with 112 acres of Class I soils (+/- 75% of the property) and 31 acres of Class II soils (+/- 21% of the property). The orchard is currently planted with five varieties of pears, including bartlett, anjou, bosc, red anjou, and comice which produced just over 132 tons of production in 2019. This property also has vast potential to be transitioned to row crops or other agricultural ventures with the combination of Class I soils and available water. There are also eighteen acres at the southernmost part of the property listed in Jackson County’s aggregate inventory.
The location is exceptional being just 5 miles to conveniences, 7 miles to the Rogue Valley International Airport, and 10 miles to downtown Medford. At 1,200 feet above sea level, the climate is highly sought after with four distinct seasons including a mild winter and a long growing season.
Southern Oregon is known for its stunning natural beauty, abundant water, developing wine industry, and niche agricultural opportunities, all with a rich small-town culture. The main homesite is secured by the original 1945-built farmhouse. The two story farmhouse is 1,352 square feet with four bedrooms and one bathroom. A second homesite is also available on the southern tax lot through a Measure 49 claim.
