Grass Valley, Oregon
Padget Ranches sits on the arid Columbia Plateau above the John Day River in Oregon, where Darren Padget’s family has farmed since 1910. Today, Darren farms with his wife Brenda and their son Logan, as well as his dad Dale, a retired wheat farmer who participated in his 67th wheat harvest in 2019. Their dryland wheat and summer fallow rotation currently produces registered and certified seed on 3,400 acres annually.
