KIMBERLY, Ore.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Longview Ranch, located along Central Oregon’s historic Route 19 in Kimberly, maintains 30,000 stunning acres of diverse landscape and is committed to responsible, sustainable land-use practices.

This year, Longview Ranch is experiencing a severe drought. For the first time in more than 25 years, Longview Ranch’s irrigation system has been turned off for junior water rights on the main stem of the John Day River from Dayville to Kimberly. This has caused Longview Ranch to stop irrigating more fields.

Longview Ranch is hoping weather patterns shift and bring more rain.
