Welcome To Schlechter Farms

Schlechter Farms - Part of Willamette Valley Agricultural History

Schlechter Farms is continuing a family farm tradition that dates back to the early 1900's when Jim's grandfather, Joseph Schlechter, settled in the Willamette Valley. Jim started farming in 1971 with wheat and clover seed, but switched in 1978 to sweet corn and onions.  Part of the farm is located in Lake Labish, where we grow the red and yellow onions for which Lake Labish is famous.

Our super-sweet corn (both white and yellow varieties) is sold to grocery stores all along the West Coast.  We grow a great deal of the sweet corn seen each summer in Safeway, Fred Meyer, Albertson’s and Winco stores.  Many of the produce vendors at farmer’s markets in Oregon purchase sweet corn from us for resale to their farm market customers.  We also supply corn and other vegetables to several of the Willamette Valley farm produce stands.  And we operate a produce stand of our own during the corn season from early August through late October.

Our plum harvest was the lightest crop ever. We've sold out already. The crazy weather seems to have affected yet another of our crops this year! But we still have lots of super-sweet corn and garden veggies.

The extended heat wave is ripening our corn almost faster than we can get it picked!  We are very much looking forward to the cooler temps forecast for this week.  We have both yellow and white sweet corn, and our garden is starting to ripen, too.  We've been picking a few jalapenos, bell peppers, cucumbers, zucchinis and cantaloupe.

Prices this year are $5.50 for a bag of 16, $10.50 for two bags of 16 and $14.25 for three bags of 16.  We also have small bags of 8 ears for $3.00.

We've received inquiries from customers, asking if our super-sweet corn is a GMO variety. Please be assured, we have certification letters from our seed suppliers that none of our delicious super-sweet corn is grown from genetically modified seed.  You can enjoy all the Schlechter Farms corn you can eat without worry.

Don't forget - you can purchase Schlechter Farms gift cards year-round.  They make fantastic gifts and can also be used as frequent buyer cards - load them up with the amount you usually spend with us each year, and then use them all season.  Just ask the cashier at our produce stand for details or call us at 503-792-3328.
