Farm History:

The Spring Hollow Farm has historically been a dry-land wheat farm and the current use remains that of a dry crop/ fallow farm. The farm has been leased out and farmed by the Betts family for many years. Currently, a long living family member will retain the other 50% undivided interest. No substantial changes from the dry-land cropping operation are anticipated. The farm has been in the family for years and used as an investment opportunity for the family.

Umatilla County:

Umatilla County was created on September 27, 1862, out of a portion of Wasco County. Umatilla is an Indian term meaning “rippling water” or “water rippling over sand” and has provided the name both for the county and its major river. Lewis and Clark and pioneers traveling the Oregon Trail passed through the area. The gold rush of 1862 brought miners and stock raisers to the mountains and grasslands of Umatilla County. The county expanded after the coming of the railroad in 1881 and the area was open to the development of dry land wheat farming. The fertile land of Umatilla County gives a strongly agricultural base to the county’s economy. Fruit, grain, timber, cattle, and sheep are important agricultural products. Recreation, primarily in the Blue Mountains, and tourism, most notably for the annual Pendleton Round-Up rodeo, are also important to the local economy.
