Hobby Farms in America on the rise

Read Rick Callahan's 2009 article from AP

Looking to shave down grocery bills? Even before today's economic hardships, more Americans were beginning to grow their own food on small "hobby farms" across the nation... many even enjoying a side business by supplying local farmers' markets or setting up roadside stands.

The two largest groups of farms in the US are residential/lifestyle farms (36%) and retirement farms (21%) per the 2007 Ag Census Farm Numbers report.

See the the average Oregon farm size by County via USDA Ag Census.

"NOT ONLY IS SHE EXTREMELY COMPETENT AND KNOWLEDGEABLE, SHE MAKES THE HOME-BUYING PROCESS FUN!" As first-time home-buyers, we were nervous about finding an agent to work with. We wanted someone who we could trust, someone who would really take the time to explain the process and what our options were. About 30 seconds into our first phone call with Terri, we knew she was just what we needed! Not only is she extremely competent and knowledgeable, she makes the home-buying process fun! She is always quick to respond, and willing to go the extra mile. Even when we had all but decided on a house (which we wound up buying and loving!) she patiently took us to see a few more places to help us feel more secure in our decision. We're so happy we found her, and we definitely recommend working with her! Corey and Patsy
"YOU DID EXCELLENT FOR US, ALL THE DIGGING, FIGURING OUT-CALLS-EMAILS-TEARING OUT YOUR HAIR AND BITING YOUR TONGUE!" Dear Terri We have had quite the year long relationship. You did excellent for us, all the digging, figuring out-calls-emails-tearing out your hair and biting your tongue! I will recommend you to my friends. Thanks for all your hard work. This week is our 4th Saturday in a row hauling stuff here - I am pooped but love the place. Hugs Marji and Lawrence Vance
"SHE UNDERSTANDS WHAT IT TAKES TO MOVE PROPERTY." Anyone who is serious about wanting to buy or sell property should have Terri Fiyalko for their realtor. Her experience works for her clients. Terri is so hard working and knowledgeable. She does a great job from excellent photography and presentation through the final paperwork. She understands what it takes to move property. Dianna Fitzgerald
"SHE LEFT NO STONE UNTURNED OR QUESTION UNASKED." Terri was absolutely terrific. Although we had been working with her for over a year as we planned our move from Colorado to Oregon it came down to 3 very short weeks to find us a home. She was simply amazing!!! She was so thorough and dedicated that we purchased our home sight unseen (except for pictures) based on her recommendation. [Note from Terri:... and *please* don't make me pick a home, sight unseen, again! My nerves couldn't take it. LOL] Thanks to her organizational skills and dogged determination we closed in three weeks from start to finish. She left no stone unturned or question unasked. It was a dream and a pleasure working with her and we will recommend her to anyone considering buying (or selling for that matter) a home. We could not have done it without her. Rodger & Ellen Kitson
