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.

It looks like we'll be closing the produce stand for the year on Sunday, October 13th, as soon as we sell the last of the corn.  The recent storms damaged the corn to the point that some ears were not able to be recovered, and we've had to hand pick every good ear.  We're running short and don't have enough to last until our usual closing weekend.   Thank you to all our wonderfully, loyal customers - it was another great corn season!

Prices this year are:  A small bag of 8 ears for $2.50, or a large mesh bag of 16 ears for $5.00.  Our large-quantity special prices are:  two large bags, totaling 32 ears for $9.50 or three large bags, totaling 48 ears for $12.75.

Hours are Monday through Saturday 8:00 am to 7:00 pm.  On Sundays 9:00 am to 7:00 pm.

We've received inquiries recently, 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.
