Experience life on the Oregon Trail at the historic homestead of Philip Foster.

Welcome to the Philip Foster Farm on the Oregon Trail, where we turn kids into pioneers and help everyone get their hands on history.   
Grounds are open dawn to dusk daily for respectful use.
Now scheduling tours for groups of 10-200. 

Please join us for a tour or event, or come volunteer!

Thank you for supporting this important piece of Oregon’s History! 

Kids bring life to the Philip Foster Farm with many fun hands-on learning experiences.  Our week long day time Summer Camps teach kids about pioneer values and skill building.  If you are looking for a field trip, Pioneer Life Tours bring school groups for a fun filled day on the farm.  You can even build your own event at the farm for your scout group, club, church, work picnic, or reunion. 

People of all ages love to step back in time as they tour the Philip Foster Farm.  We offer adult oriented tours for any size group.  Please schedule your tours ahead of time using the links below.
