A gallery of Oregon’s Wheat

photography by Emily Joan Greene

Oregon’s bounty is on display year-round, from garlic to Christmas trees and everything in between. The state’s farmers produce more than 40 million bushels of wheat every year.

The Padget family of Padget Ranches, in The Dalles, and the Dulings of Dulings Natural Pasture in Maupin, gave us the inside scoop on this year’s harvest.
