Small Things Matter

The tiny Farmstore is now open! We sell only organically grown produce and local handmade gifts. Fri 2-6; Sat 10-4; Sun 10-4.

Welcome to Lilliputopia, a tiny eco-farm in Monroe, Oregon that promotes conservation and sustainability. We specialize in dry farming ; our vegetables are grown without irrigation, pesticides or chemical fertilizers. We also have natural building demonstrations and practice rotational grazing with a small chicken flock. We conduct research and collaborate with Oregon State University and offer demonstrations of our sustainable and permaculture practices.
