Polk county member and OWA 2nd Vice President Tiffany Marx talks about how family farms like hers grow Oregon wheat.
- 90% of wheat grown in Oregon is exported
- Wheat ranks #6 in Oregon’s top crops
- Wheat is the #1 product exported through the Port of Portland
- Oregon wheat producers raise primarily soft white wheat, which makes the best pastries, cakes, pretzels, cookies and the Asian noodles we know as ramen
