Welcome to Dunton Family Farms
Since 1909


About Us

Located at Liberal in the beautiful Willamette Valley of Oregon, this soil has sustained our family for generations -- through world wars with "Victory Gardens", global economic collapse, societal unrest, and natural disasters. We believe that with proper stewardship, the farm will continue to provide sustenance for generations to come. To read more about what we do on the farm, click here.

Farm Visitation

At this time, we do not have the funds to support necessary facility additions, the added liability insurance, or extra staff required to accept visitors. In our long term plans, we are hoping to grow to a point where we will be able to give tours, classes, and support onsite sales.

At this time, we offer our seeds exclusively through the business that we founded in 1998, the Victory Seed Company. We appreciate you supporting them with your orders, which directly helps to fund our biodiversity preservation work. We hope to open our facilities for educational purposes in the future.

Our Farming Philosophy

We believe that we are to be good stewards of all that we have been given responsibility over.1 It is obvious to us that we cannot ever truly possess anything. We simply take care of it for our grandchildren -- as our ancestors did for us. On this basis we believe in sustainable agriculture and the use of non-chemical, natural, healthy farming practices. We are a Certified Naturally Grown farm. (Refer to our position on "Organic")


  1. "The Lord God took the man and put him in the Garden of Eden to work it and take care of it." --  Genesis 2:15

  2. "Life begins the day you start a garden" -- Chinese Proverb

  3. "Do not harm the land, or the sea, or the trees . . . " -- Rev. 7:3

  4. "When the sun rises, I go to work, When the sun goes down, I take my rest, I dig the well from which I drink, I farm the soil that yields my food, I share creation, Kings can do no more." -- Ancient Chinese Proverb, 2500 B.C.

  5. "A human being should be able to change a diaper, plan an invasion, butcher a hog, conn a ship, design a building, write a sonnet, balance accounts, build a wall, set a bone, comfort the dying, take orders, give orders, cooperate, act alone, solve equations, analyze a new problem, pitch manure, program a computer, cook a tasty meal, fight efficiently, and die gallantly. Specialization is for insects." -- Robert Heinlein (speaking as character Lazarus Long in the novel "Time Enough for Love")

  6. "We did not inherit this Earth from our Ancestors. We borrowed it from our children." -- Ancient Proverb
