The Williams Hudson Bay Farm is located in Umatilla County, Oregon directly adjacent the Washington-Oregon border 15 miles SW of Walla Walla, Washington. The farm is comprised of 3062 FSA organic cropland acres and a heifer cattle feedlot certified for 8000 head on feed. Twenty eight crops have been grown on 2750 tillable acres of the Williams Farm over the past five years with primary crops including organic spring and winter wheat, corn grain, corn silage, and mixed forages. Secondary rotational crops include organic edible beans, alfalfa seed, peas, barley, and canola. Higher value specialty crops include organic pumpkins, squash, and melons with organic potato and onion production available for the rotation. The Williams Farm includes a 6.3 acre vineyard on the south slope of the property with air drainage and soil characteristics suitable for up to 100 acres of vineyard expansion.
Elevation ranges from approximately 520 feet on the valley floor to just over 950 feet on the south hills. The Williams Farm has extensive water rights including surface water from the Hudson Bay District Improvement Company. The water rights provide for 2545 acres of primary irrigation and 4675 acres of supplemental irrigation. The interconnected irrigation system serves all tillable acres through pivot and hand line systems. The majority of cropland acres have both surface and ground water rights available.
The Williams Farm cattle feedlot provides a connected market to deliver organic forages, including double crop mixed forages, produced on the cropland acres. The feedlot also provides organic fertilizer to support the organic crop production. This integrated operations create a unique structure for the Williams Farm to produce multiple crops from each acre annually while building fertility and soil health required for successful organic production.
