Golden Eagle Organics is a small suburban farm on the NE edge of Bend (Pop. 90,000+) in the high desert of Central Oregon. The farm is operated by the Lepore family: Brian, Emily, Gus and Claudia, with Brian acting as the farm manager. Emily works at St. Charles Hospital in Bend as a speech and language pathologist. Gus, age 12 and Claudia, age 10, go to school in Bend and help out occasionally. We also have one full-time employee, Gaelen Williamson, who helps in all aspects of the farm activities. One or two other part-time employees may also work on the farm as needed. The farm raises sheep and goats for meat, chickens for eggs and raises a variety of vegetables and small fruits for local consumers. We are guided by the 3-legs concept that a farm must be financially, ecologically and socially sustainable in order to continue.
We focus on raising meat and produce in a regenerative way that builds and sustains healthy soils. Our livestock operation is Animal Welfare Approved and Certified grass-fed. Our livestock are rotated on irrigated pastures almost every day between small paddocks made using moveable electrified fencing systems. Our vegetables are primarily planted, cultivated and harvested using hands and hand tools. We use organic fertilizers, composts, and pest management. We sell directly, at two local farmers markets, through a local produce consignment market, a seasonal CSA and to local restaurants.
