Thistledown Orchards is a small ten-acre farm in the Illinois Valley near Selma, Oregon, owned and operated by Jerry Allen & Lisa Waltenspiel. Our farm began in 2015 with the purchase of the property and our first orchard planting.

Our mission is to develop a flourishing organic farm, nurture a sustainable microecology on the land, and create a spiritual refuge for all who come here. We offer heritage varieties of natural produce, crafting & homesteading tools, and resources for healthy living.
