Welcome to Dawson Farms!

Our farm was established in 1996 as a potato farm.  Over the past 20 years, our acreage has grown to allow us to rotate our acres of potatoes with other rotation crops planted on a 3-4 year rotation.  We have recently diversified even more with the addition of commercial cattle under irrigated forage pivots used for grazing and for a variety of hay crops.  The goal behind adding cattle to our farm is to better manage the health of the soil while producing top quality beef.  

We specialize in a variety of russet potatoes; specifically Burbank, Ranger, and Umatilla varieties.  Our rotation crops consist of a variety of soil enriching commodity crops such as peas, beans, and irrigated grazing crops (seed mixture of peas, oats, radishes, millet, and other high intensity grazing plants).  Additionally, when the market demands, we will grow several pivots of wheat, corn and soy beans.  The straw from our wheat and oat fields is then baled for use in our cattle barns and calving areas.

​Whether you are a college student, accountant, rancher, agronomist, ag-business major, mechanic, or experienced farm equipment operator, Dawson Farms is a great place to work in the farm and cattle industries.  At Dawson Farms, you can pursue a simple internship or a lifelong career working with us as we continually work to be progressive and utilize the best (not always the newest) technologies to yield quality products with efficient time management and excellent maintenance of our equipment.

Our Mission

We are a successful farm and ranch operation committed to sustaining an environmentally sound land management system, operating a safe and efficient work environment; and producing a diversified group of top quality commodities which include potatoes, legumes, grains, feeder crops, hay, and beef.
