Where oat and wheat together rise
I understand that to be "oak and weed", not "oat and wheat".
The point of it has to do with unspoiled nature at that point, not agriculture. "Oak and weed" make much better sense.
I couldn't tell you authoritatively what Richard Farina's original poem said, though.
