Jamieson Produce is an onion packing shed located in Vale, Oregon that packs and ships onions across
the United States 12 months of the year. It has been in operation for nearly 40 years and currently
employees about 50 people. Over the years our business has grown and to date we pack and ship over 100 million pounds of onions each year. We appreciate the quality onions our growers provide and the hard work our employees do every day. Jamieson Produce is owned by Doug and Terrie Maag and managed by Jeff Stubbs.

Y-1 Farms is located in Jamieson, Oregon and is owned by Doug and Terrie Maag and Corey and Mandi
Maag. Various row crops such as onions, sugar beets, silage corn, alfalfa, and wheat are grown on
nearly 2000 acres. The feed crops are used to provide feed for the feedlot they operate. Up to 12,000
head of cattle can be fed at Y-1 Farms. Y-1 Farms was established in 1985 but the Maag Family was
farming before that. Doug farmed with his father, Warner Maag, for several years prior before
purchasing his own farm. Y-1 Farms employs about 20 full-time employees to assist in operating the
farm. We are extremely grateful for our employees and the hard work they provide.
