Crop Diversity 

Crop diversity is something that we have found to be a key factor to the long-term success of  Forest Hills Farms. Although we focus heavily on the production of our blueberries, black raspberries, and wine grapes we take pride in growing quality seed crops, sweet corn, and grain. 

                  We have been growing corn here at Forest Hills Farms for over 45 years. Sweet corn is machine harvestedbetween late August and early October. After harvest, our sweet corn is typically frozen and distributed throughout the United States. This photo was taken in June 2017, while our corn was in its' early growth stages.

               Being in the heart of one of the best grass seed growing regions in the world, we have been growing grass seed for 20+ years. This crop thrives in the cool, wet Pacific Northwest climate, which is why the Willamette Valley has become the world's largest producer of grass seed for both turf and forage.

               Wheat is an important rotational crop that we have been growing at the farm for many years. We grow both Spring and Winter Soft White Wheat.

               At Forest Hills Farms we typically grow both red and crimson clover. Clover does very well in the Willamette Valley because similar to grass seed, it is able to withstand the cold rainy weather we typically have. Red clover can be harvested for its seed or also as green chop commonly used in dairies. Be on the lookout in mid-may around the Willamette Valley for the beautiful, vast fields of crimson clover. Red clover seed is typically harvested in mid to late August while crimson clover is harvested in early July.
