Looking for Crops for Farm in Oregon
Answered by: Richard Alan Miller
Question from: Mary Leatherman
Posted on: March 29, 2006

I found your question and answer website on the internet and have a question that you might be able to help me with. I have 7-10 acres available in Yamhill County Oregon, the elevation is 970 feet, and I would like to know if there are any crops that would be worth growing for a profit. The soil has some clay content and is now pasture. I know nothing about farming and this would be part time. Please email with your thoughts. I would also be open to partnering with someone who might know more than I do.

I have done numerous farm plans for Oregon over the years, especially in your region. I even have a shopping list of crops I need for current markets.

About six years ago, the markets fell and many of my farmers went out of business. I now need new farmers with specific crops for my developed markets. I am prepared to broker these crops, and offer instructions on how to produce them for my market needs.

Why not call me this week and see if we might not have a match? I can be reached during the day at (541) 476-5588.
