Our Story


Wayne Strauch’s lifelong passion for farming sprouted from a childhood on his Grandma’s farm and grew with a bachelors degree in agriculture from California State University at Chico.

He has been in the Christmas tree and landscape nursery business since 1971 when he moved to Oregon and started Bambi’s Christmas Tree Land and Nursery LLC. For five decades he has never stopped learning about, improving upon, and implementing the most sustainable farming practices. He is a true steward of the land he loves. 

It is not surprising to see him utilizing the same ethical farming practices as he takes his company into the hemp industry. The Oregon Hemp Farmer continues to stand out through compliance, trail of custody, and quality control.
