Elle Coon of Oak Park Farms talks about the grass seed that Oregon farm families grow!

Facts about Grass Seed 

  • Oregon grows over 2/3 of the world’s supply of cool season grasses
  • Oregon grass seed is turf and forage varieties meaning it can end up in a family’s yard to feeding the beef and lamb you eat!
  • Oregon grass seed was used in the 2014 World Cup in Brazil
  • 1,500 farms make grass seed one of the top five crops grown in Oregon
  • A lawn of just 50 square feet releases enough oxygen to meet the needs of a family of four.
