Goschie Farms, nestled within the hills of the Pacific Northwest's scenic Willamette Valley, has been a fixture in the Oregon farming community for 130 years. In addition to growing over 550 acres of hops and 150 acres of wine grapes, Goschie Farms also grows 300+ acres of other crops including grass seed, corn, and wheat.
The farm's current location was established by Herman and Vernice Goschie. It is now managed year-round by three of their children: Gordon, Gayle, and Glenn in addition to a cadre of wonderful team members.
Frequently cited as an example for sustainable farming practices, Goschie Farms was the first hop farm in the nation to be certified as Salmon-Safe and now grows all of its crops in accordance with salmon-safe guidelines. The farm is also a notable colloborator with industry research, having worked with scientists and researchers from Oregon State University, USDA, and the NRCS (in addition to a number of other organizations) to improve the health of Oregon crops and expand the amount of information available to other growers and industry partners.
