Nestled at the foot of the hills of the beautiful Southern Oregon Coast, Dragonfly Farm offers a unique shopping experience that is kid and dog friendly. What once was a nursery back in the 1940's-60's is now back to life and open as a fully stocked year-round nursery. You'll find happy people ready to help you find what you need amongst the large selection of plants tucked under the canopies of camellias, rhododendrons and large conifers. You'll find perennials, annuals, our always organic vegetable starts, herbs, berries, succulents, cacti, houseplants, shrubs & trees; as well as organic fertilizers, potting soil, certified organic pesticides and herbicides and more. Find a unique gift for someone or for yourself - we offer a growing selection of gift shop items as well as gift cards!
Dragonfly Farm & Nursery was created in 2014
by a Mother-Daughter duo, Pam and Jenine. It was named Dragonfly Farm because of what the Dragonfly symbolizes - transformation.... we also have hundreds of dragonflies (you'll see them most in the summer time)!
The property is where Pam mothered all of her kids and it was once a rare plant nursery more than 40 years ago! She has always seen potential in what we now call the "farm" and she has always felt as if it were destined for something more,
it's a place to be shared.
When we first started we were much more of a farm and less of a nursery. We sold potted plants like herbs and veggies inside the Old Town Farmers Market in Bandon. We also raised chickens for eggs, rabbits for meat and goats with the plan of eventually selling goats milk. We had visions of a full on farm! Then our plant sales started taking off and all the rest sort of fell out of the priority list. We have many plans for the future of Dragonfly Farm - especially to get more of the "farm" side back... stay tuned!
Located right off of Highway 101 on the east side of the highway, tucked away behind a forest of trees you'll find Dragonfly Farm & Nursery.
As you pull up the tree tunneled driveway you might see the dogs waiting to greet you
(Freccia pictured on the left and Bella on the right). We LOVE when other dogs come to visit - if they are well-behaved we don't mind if you let them wander off leash. Our pups love new friends!
Wander through the gift shop, where you will find unique items including home decor, gift items and yard art. Check out the renovated greenhouse where you will find one of the biggest selections of succulents and houseplants around. Our new (as of 2022) Garden Shop is full of gardening supplies, organic fertilizers, pest control and more.
Take a walk outside under the Camellias and Rhododendrons that were planted over 50 years ago and you will find a large and growing selection of well-loved plants. Don't forget the little ones - Kids love Dragonfly Farm!
The dragonfly, in almost every part of the world symbolizes change and change in the perspective of self realization; and the kind of change that has its source in mental and emotional maturity and the understanding of the deeper meaning of life.
The environment is important to us and we aim to grow more and more ourselves every year so we can control how the plants are treated. For us that means no synthetic fertilizer on any edible plants. And we use all natural and organic potting soil and fertilizers when we plant, this ensures that the plant will grow strong and not be forced into blooming or into growing too fast.
When pest control is needed we look to our beneficial insect friends for help. The best defense is a good offense. But when we do need to spray, we use sprays that are certified for organic gardening.
Did you know?
Dragonfly Farm was once a rare plant nursery owned by Donald Stryker, who was known for his large collection of Camellias and Magnolias that he grew at the farm in the 1940's-1960's.
Come in early Spring and you will see the beautiful blooms of the different varieties of Camellias and Magnolias that Don planted.

Wild Rivers Coast Food Trail
This video was made by Travel Oregon to help promote tourism growth in more communities statewide. We were lucky enough to be in it to help represent the Wild Rivers Coast Farm Trail; a trail of farmers, as well as stores and restaurants that carry local farm products, that just began in 2015. The farm trail has now turned into the "Wild Rivers Coast Food Trail" that extends from Brookings to Reedsport that features farms, restaurants, coffee shops and stores.
