- the 80 acre place has a Conditional Use Permit (CUP) for a main house plus barns, shop, and other buildings. 


Size: The 80 acre ranch is one half mile by one quarter mile in size.

The Ranch house pictured above is also available separately: The ranch house is a newly built, one room plus bathroom of about 300sqft, stick built, inspected to code, blue labelled structure. Our crews can add square footage as needed. It provides the owner with a ready-built structure as a main residence or as a headquarters while building a larger house. It is designed for flexibility and can be moved to any of the many potential home sites on the property. 

Location: 30 minutes east of Bend, Oregon, off Highway 27. (This is not a Juniper Acres property).

UPS delivers to the door for a nearby property and delivery - at least close to the property - can be arranged. 

With modern communications, business can be done from anywhere, though it is a big advantage to have a major city like Bend nearby.

There are daily nonstop flights from nearby Redmond Airport to large cities such as San Francisco, Portland, Seattle, Salt Lake City, and Denver.

Financing: We have financing available. 


The 80 acre place was originally homesteaded and farmed by Alpha O. Myers in 1914.

The 160 acre place was originally homesteaded by Edward Evans.

Homesteaders took ownership of the land in accordance with the Homestead Act by improving the land as required by the Act. Myers received a deed signed by Woodrow Wilson on June 14, 1914. The homesteads were used for grazing, farming, and mining exploration. Click here for the original homestead record. Go to Land Patents and enter Oregon and Crook County, and then Alpha Myers). Some of Myers' descendants still live in Central Oregon. Many of the Juniper posts used in fencing the ranch were originally built by Myers.

Features of the Ranches:

- legal and physical access.

- Owner financing or ready bank financing is available.

- There are excellent mountain views and several potential home sites.

- We will transfer all mineral rights that we own to the new owner.

- There are excellent opportunities for sustainable living and stewardship of the land.

- The purchase of these properties provides full ownership of the land: no homeowners' association fees, no sharing of common land, no fractional ownership.



- It's great to have privacy and large property but to be able to have these within commuting distance of a world class city is very rare.

- The land has varied elevation, with both flat and steep areas, and is covered by mature Juniper trees.

- These properties allow an owner to keep his own horses and cattle.

- Nearby are thousands of acres of Bureau of Land Management federal land, leading all the way to Prineville Reservoir and beyond to the east and west. Large expanses of National Forest land are also in the area:

- The properties are eligible for mailbox and regular US Mail delivery.

- Medical facilities within 30 minutes of this property are superb. Top-notch specialist doctors have been attracted to the region because of the lifestyle opporunities. The urgent care Bend Memorial Clinic and the main hospital at St. Charles Medical Center are world-class, outstanding facilities with efficient and polite staff. Just visit these hospitals and look around.
