• Welcome to the Farm

    The Berggren Demonstration Farm is a working 30-acre farm located along the lower McKenzie River, the sole source of drinking water for the more than 200,000 residents of Eugene, Oregon. We recognize an important connection between healthy farms and clean water in the McKenzie River Valley, and emphasize farming practices that work with nature: striving to conserve and enhance our soil, water, plant and animal resources. Our produce is grown using organic practices and our livestock are humanely raised with access to sun, fresh air and pasture, without hormones or antibiotics. The farm is managed by Cascade Pacific Resource Conservation and Development, in partnership with the McKenzie River Trust and Eugene Water & Electric Board.
