Region Legend

  • A very diverse region offering salmon, halibut, Dungeness crab, oysters, mussels, clams, and more. Specialty crops include cranberries and lily bulbs grown mostly on the southern coast. Dairy farms also dot the region producing high quality milk and world-renowned cheeses.
  • Beef cattle and sheep enjoy grazing in mountainous areas of this region. Wine production is becoming more prominent as many are finding that the climate and soils are excellent for growing grapes. The Rogue River area produces high quality tree fruit, including pears.
  • The most agriculturally diverse region in Oregon and perhaps on earth. The Willamette Valley produces more than 170 different agricultural commodities including specialty crops (fruits, vegetables, tree nuts, nursery products, and medicinal herbs), grain, hay, grass seed, and more. Animal agriculture is prominent in the valley as well including dairy and beef cows, sheep, and poultry.
  • Irrigation has transformed what was once sagebrush and desert in this region into some of the most productive farmland in the nation. Wheat, potatoes, onions, vegetables for processing, watermelon, tree fruit, and alfalfa are grown in this area. One of the nation’s largest dairies is located here as well.
  • Nestled in the middle of Oregon, this region boasts specialty seed crops as well as hay and beef cattle production. The growing population in this area has led to the production of various vegetables as well.
  • Cattle graze on thousands of private and federal rangelands in this region. Most of the land is unsuitable for farming and thus cattle production is an excellent alternative. Crops in this area must be irrigated and include onions, potatoes, and sugarbeets. Many hay varieties are produced in this region as well.
  • The Treasure Valley is located in this region, which is where most of the nation’s onion production occurs. Other crops grown include mint, hay, potatoes, sugarbeets, and a variety of vegetables. Beef cattle production is also prominent in this region.
  • The Mid-Columbia region
