Speaking For Oregon Agriculture Since 1969

From board rooms, to colleges, to classrooms, fairs and the halls of the legislature the members of Oregon Women for Agriculture have been working hard to share the message about agriculture in our state.

Oregon Agricultural Facts

Oregon boasts over 220 locally grown commodities, the third most agriculturally-diverse in the nation. Learn more about the characteristics that make Oregon such a special place to call home.

FARMER’S MARKETS

There are over 160 farmer’s markets in Oregon. Farmers’ markets, farm tours, u-pick stands, and farm-to-fork meals are popular for the fresh and local foods they provide. 

BEEF CATTLE

Cattle are raised in all 36 counties in Oregon. In 2014, the Oregon Department of Agriculture Statistics estimated Oregon had 1,280,000 head of beef cattle.

WINE

The number of vineyards in Oregon has nearly doubled since 2005. Over 17,000 jobs are provided by the wine industry in Oregon. 

ONIONS

Eastern Oregon is the leading region in the country for onions, weighing in at about 1,724,700,000 pounds! Malheur, Umatilla, and Morrow counties produce the largest amount of onions.
