family owned - quality crops
Baley-Trotman Farms is a family-owned partnership dedicated to growing the highest quality chipper potatoes, wheat and alfalfa hay.
Started by Lon Baley and Mark Trotman in 1975, Baley-Trotman Farms is an innovative and expanding agricultural business with a focus on quality production, technological advancements and sustainability.
With over 30 years of farming experience, our farm is recognized as a premier grower in the Klamath and Tulelake Basin. Our chipper potatoes are shipped across the country and around the world as a critical ingredient in some of your favorite foods.
Lon Baley and Mark Trotman established Baley-Trotman Farms with a focus on delivering exceptional crops, consistently, to customers across the United States. By investing in equipment, facilities and technology which promoted accuracy and efficiency in the field, Lon and Mark were able to lay a strong foundation for future growth.
Working alongside their families, Lon and Mark were soon recognized for their practical, enthusiastic, "get-it-done" approach to farming. Strong relationships with industry partners have allowed Baley-Trotman Farms to expand their chipper potato operation, while diversifying into other crops.
In addition to our family's work on the farm, Baley-Trotman Farms is passionate about giving back to the small communities that we call home. Our farm has hosted field trips, participated in Farm Expos and provided other opportunities for local youth to learn about potatoes, farming and what it means to be a part of Baley-Trotman Farms.
Our farm is proud to support the schools, athletic programs and FFA organizations in our home towns. It is a privilege to live and work alongside others that embrace the work ethic and values that support life-long success.
