Here in Oregon, we grow over 250 different crops. So it’s no wonder that in our soil this year we have 10 different crops growing. And while in the next three months they will all get harvested, currently everything is at all different stages. Some crops are just getting planted, some starting to flower, some are pollinating, and others are already ready to be harvested!
So here is your photo tour of our farm and the 10 crops we are raising.
First stop the grasses, both perennial and tall fescue are grown on our farm.
Next, vegetables seeds. We are raising red cabbage seed…
Then finally, all the crops you can eat!!! Wheat…
And Green beans…
So there you have it! And yes, to answer the question I most often get asked, we are really busy! And most of the time, we are loving it!

Thank you for the tour! This is exactly what confirm people need. They want to learn, but have few opportunities. I like the road signs that identify various crops too.
Should be “nonfarm” people, not confirm people
Love the photo tour!!
You guys have a beautiful farm and family.
That red cabbage sure looks like canola ,what crop has the most acres on your farm ,what type of insect & desease pressure are on these crops.
The perennial ryegrass makes up the most acres on our farm. I tend to think it will stay that way for a long time, but then again you just never know with farming! Your second question is a lot more loaded! Ultimately it depends on the crop. We fight all pest battles though, everything from slugs to fungus, bugs to weeds. Since we are growing crops for seed the pressure is much higher to keep fields clean and healthy. It takes a lot of energy for a plant to produce viable seed after it has already produced a product like a cabbage head.
