“Where Wheat is King”

As you travel South and East of The Dalles you will be traveling through the beautiful rolling hills of one of our nation’s major wheat producing areas. Our forefathers built an empire with wheat as the cornerstone. This turn of the century harvest scene comes to life once a year, the second weekend in August at the historic farming community of Dufur, Oregon during the annual Threshing Bee.
