Columbia Plateau

Columbia Plateau

Farm Illustration  

This is Oregon's principal wheat production area. Irrigation along the Columbia River has transformed what was once sagebrush and desert into some of the nation's most productive farmland where you can find potatoes, onions, a variety of vegetables for processing, watermelon, tree fruit, and alfalfa.

Oregon schools, child care centers, and summer food programs (otherwise known as school food sponsors) serve a variety of foods in their meal programs, including dairy products, whole grains, meat, seafood and fruits and vegetables. Many of these products are available in Oregon and reimbursable under the Oregon Farm to School Program.

New to Selling to School Food Sponsors?

If you are new to selling to schools or interested in finding out if you have eligible products covered under the program, please visit the Oregon Department of Agriculture’s Farm to School Program to get started.

Connect to School Food Sponsors

We are here to help! Oregon has many Regional Farm to School Hubs to assist producers and school food sponsors at the local level. For questions about selling local products and supply chain issues please contact your Procurement Regional Hub Coordinator. For questions about farm field trips, in classroom agricultural education or school gardens please contact your Education Regional Hub Coordinator.
