History

The Great Depression was at its worst in 1934, but Gerald Detering, a Eugene jewelry store bookkeeper, had a dream of owning his own farm. Marie, his wife of four years, shared his dream, since they both came from old farming families. hey found a forty acre tract of river bottom land they liked, located a dozen or so miles north of Eugene, so they bought it and started a small truck farm. Their new home wasn’t even completely finished when they moved in and started raising crops of asparagus, blackberries, cabbages, carrots, muskmelons, rutabagas, rhubarb, turnips and peaches. Some of their crop they sold in nearby Eugene and some they sold from a fruit stand under a tree on their property.
