Lakeside Companies via Century Farms farms over 17,000 acres in the Pacific Northwest of canola, winter wheat, and reclamation grass. 2022 has been a record growing season for Century. Recently, we visited some of our fields to capture the canola in bloom and some of the farms at work. To see what happens to the canola when it is harvested, see our recent post on canola processing.
Many of the fields are located in The Palouse, a special geographic area that is home to some of the highest yielding wheat acres in the United States. Century Farms practices no-till farming and focuses on sustainable farming practices.
Here is a birds eye view flyover of some of the fields, along with some stills of our farm teams at work:
