Oregon Food and Farming History


The work of farmers and scientists, consumers and producers, writers and historians come together in the Special Collections and Archives Research Center. We've created an Oregon Food & Farming guide, which we hope will be a rich resource for your food and farming research projects.

The guide highlights archival and manuscript collections, rare and main stacks library books or journals, and offers links to our online collections. We offer tips for keywords and search strategies for each section, as well as information about how the content in specific archival collections will meet your needs.

Though it is a rich guide, it does not contain every collection or possible avenue for exploration. Follow your own leads - we hope it is a good place to start!
