We are located on headlands along the southern Oregon coast, at 160 feet elevation, within a mile of the beach. sun rise through the fir treesOur soil is poor for agriculture, mostly sand and clay with low pH from conifer litter. The summers are not hot, it is generally windy, and it rarely frosts or freezes. Throughout the winter the garden has arugula, lettuce, carrots, parsley, thyme, sage, oregano, lemon balm, peppermints, and calendula.

We started Rogue Wave Farm as a 'modern homesteading' experiment, an action response to our times, our era. How much of our food can we produce and what can we do on our own with what we already have? How can we moderate our needs and expectations to lower the energy and products we require from a global supply chain? chicken tractor As teachers in the public schools, we also intended Rogue Wave Farm LLC to be a learning center where life skills anchor academic standards in a 'hand, heart, and head' approach to education. We no longer see Rogue Wave Farm LLC as a homesteading experiment, but now, are organizing a "Day at the Farm" program for Homeschool families. More details about the "Day at the Farm" will be coming out at this website in early June 2024.

Sustainability represents a goal that we are far from achieving. Yet, our substantial harvests eliminate a need for the packing, processing, transporting, and retailing of food. Here, we connect with the seasons and nature and find peace. That's the successful part of this lifestyle. Managing our production and consumption of energy and products is what we can do locally.
