The Future of Historic Hanley Farm
Historic Hanley Farm, established in 1857, is a working farm just outside of downtown Jacksonville. For over 150 years Hanley Farm has been providing food to the community. Thanks to the efforts of the Southern Oregon Historical Society and a dedicated group of young farmers, this picturesque community landmark will continue providing food into the future.
This season we are excited to introduce many new features at Hanley Farm.
Our Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) program is a great opportunity to support Hanley Farm, connect with local farmers, and receive a delicious weekly share of fresh produce, straight from our gardens! Additionally, Coquette Bakery will be providing weekly baked goods for our CSA shares.
Share options for the 2013 Hanley Farm CSA program are:
~ Full Share at $600.00 ($30.00 value of fruits, vegetables, and bread per week)
~ Half share at $400.00 ($20.00 value of fruits, vegetables, and bread per week)
Join us and celebrate delicious local food grown for our community with love and care!

The Farm Stand
Another convenient way to pick up our fresh local produce is from the new Hanley Farm Stand, opening June 1st. Located in the front barn by the parking lot, you will find the farm stand stocked with seasonal fruits and vegetables, preserves, and sauerkraut, direct from Hanley gardens. Fresh local Coquette baked goods will also be available periodically throughout the season.
Now in its second season, the Origins Dinner Series is a unique farm-to-table dining experience. A carefully-crafted 4-course menu with wine and beer pairings will be prepared on-site by Chef Kristen Lyon. Each dinner features a Southern Oregon historical speaker and museum exhibit to include old gun collections, local train robberies and revolutions, interesting natural events and disasters, hops, prohibition and more! The 2013 dinner dates are: June 22, July 27, August 24, and September 28. Mark your calendars and make your reservations early. These dinners are sure to sell out.
The Farmers Market
Hanley Farm will also hold a booth at the Jacksonville Farmers Market where you will find seasonal fruits, vegetables, and preserves. The farmers market, open Sunday’s from 10am-2pm, is located on the grounds of the historic courthouse on the corner of 5th and C in downtown Jacksonville.
