Oregon State University Extension is the go-to resource for the expertise and knowledge every Oregonian needs to live healthy lives, nurture our great state’s ecosystems, and play a vital role in Oregon’s vibrant communities.

We’re partnering with people in every county and helping them thrive every day — just as we have done for more than 100 years.

Sherman County is known as "the Land of Wheat." Encompassing a total of 531,840 acres (831 square miles; approximately 20 miles wide and 42 miles long), nearly 58% of the county's land is tilled and soft white winter wheat is the major crop. In fact, Sherman County is annually the third largest wheat producing county in Oregon, despite being 29th out of 36 counties in size. However, the 58% of land tilled ranks number one, far above the state average of 8% of tilled land per county. Sherman County is the only county in Oregon without natural forestation.
