About Us

AG Specialties is a wholesale trading company, while Willamette AG is a retail farm store, serving growers in the Willamette Valley of Oregon. Both companies' main product lines are fertilizer and farm chemicals, so there is a useful synergy between the companies. Willamette AG can blend, bag and store products. AG Specialties can sell in a broader sales territory than Willamette AG covers, while AG Specialties provides good deals on products for Willamette AG, and also financial support.

AG Specialties is a wholesale trading company, founded in June 2000 by John Hadley. Our main product lines are farm chemicals and fertilizers, but we also trade in animal feeds, seeds, plus industrial and mining chemicals. We purchase worldwide and our sales are predominantly in North America. We represent many manufacturers as domiciled distributors, and also shop the national and international markets for the best deals. As wholesale distributors and brokers we buy and sell fertilizer by the truckload, railcar, barge, and shipload. Farm chemicals are generally traded in pallet lots and truckloads, although expensive chemicals are often sold in case lots. We do sell most of the commodity products, but our focus is on specialty and niche products.

Willamette AG was formed April 3rd, 2001. The company has four primary segments: fertilizer blending, farm chemicals, liquid and dry limestone sales and application, and a trucking company (AKA Transport).

Our facilities on Territorial Road in Harrisburg Or, have over 22,000 square feet of storage under roof, on 2 1/2 acres. From this home base we service the needs of farmers in the Willamette Valley of Oregon and southwestern Washington.

A unique product we handle is a liquid calcium carbonate. Our specialized application equipment allows us to spread liquid lime in the most efficient way, directly sprayed into the root zones of crops like berries, Christmas trees, and other permanent row crops. Our liquid lime has extremely fine particle size, so it is more reactive in the soil than dry limestone - no dusty clouds drifting on to your neighbor's property.
