Oregon Agriculture

Oregon’s vast agricultural diversity is no secret. With more than 35,000 farms covering a whopping 16.3 million acres, the state produces more than 220 commodities. A big part of Oregon’s agricultural success is the unique attributes of its different growing regions.

Oregon’s deliciously famous seafood, including salmon, albacore tuna, Dungeness crab, pink shrimp, oysters and more, comes from the coastal region. Flavorful and award-winning cheeses are also produced here. The Willamette Valley region is one of the most agriculturally diverse in Oregon – and the world. Willamette Valley farmers produce more than 170 different commodities ranging from grain, grass seed, nursery products and Christmas trees to fresh produce, hazelnuts, cattle and sheep. Other important regions include Mid-Columbia, Central Oregon, Columbia Plateau, Northeast Oregon, Southeastern Oregon and Southern Oregon.
