We are a small farm located on 5 acres in Rainier, Oregon. We grow kids, animals, vegetables, herbs, edible flowers, raise pastured chickens for eggs, and offer made-to-order packages of veggie and herb starts for your garden. The farm may be new, but we are experienced growers. We are slowly but surely creating a diversified family farm.

We are not a certified organic farm. However, we DO NOT USE ANY synthetic fertilizers, herbicides or pesticides. Instead we employ the use of: NOP ( National Organic Program) accepted organic fertilizers, good culture, crop rotations, companion plantings, beneficial herbs, flowers and insects, green manures, cover crops, compost and good old-fashioned manure. We care about our soil, our planet and the health of our customers. This is the food we feed our small children and we feel very good about it, you can too.

We're heading into our second season with excitement! We are growing a wide variety of open-pollinated heirloom vegetables, herbs and edible flowers and look forward to adding some new treats this year like hand made soaps and herb vinegars.

We ourselves are busy parents of young children to cook for, so there will be an emphasis on traditional meal time essentials and favorites that kids and adults of all ages are sure to enjoy.

Our season starts at the first part of June (exact date TBA) and runs 18 weeks. A full share is $600. $300.00 is due at the time of sign-up with the remainder due by May 10th. Any shares paid in full by April 15th will receive a FREE bread share! We accept cash or checks and Paypal. Paypal is our preferred method of payment. Please contact us for complete details.

A full share should, over-all, provide enough produce for an omnivorous family of four. The weekly shares will be lighter at the opening of the season; greens, peas, scallions, early potatoes etc. but will pick up as the season progresses to include all your summer favorites and will round out with what we hope are bumper crops of tomatoes, carrots, winter squashes, cabbages and potatoes etc. Shares will include fresh herbs on a regular basis. Boxes of vegetables for canning will be offered up for sale as they are available.

We have pasture raised organic chicken eggs available for sale on-farm and in Clatskanie. We will make year -round deliveries for group orders, minimum of 10 dozen eggs, for 10 weeks. Eggs are $5.00 a dozen.

We have arranged a drop sites at the Portland Village School in north Portland, and downtown Clatskanie. We are looking for other venues in Columbia and Cowlitz counties as well as greater Portland. If you have site in mind, please let us know! Farm pick-up is available and encouraged.
