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 Roth's, Safeway, Fred Meyer and Winco stores. These same grocery stores also offer our squash throughout the fall season.

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.



 Look at this!  Tassels already and it's only June 20th! Check back soon for updates about our opening date for 2016.

WE'VE STARTED PLANTING THE 2016 CORN CROP!

Wow!  It's not even Independence Day yet and we're spotting tassels on the corn!  Things are looking good for another early opening of our farm produce stand. Keep watching here and on our Facebook page for updates.  Depending on the summer weather, we hope to open our produce stand in late July 2016

We've received inquiries from customers, asking if our super-sweet corn is a GMO variety. Please be assured, our corn is not a GMO variety and 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.
