Fry Road Nursery & Garden

Fry Road Nursery & Garden is a fourth-generation family farm in Albany, OR.

We are excited to be growing fresh market vegetables for the 2013 season. If you are interested in supporting our farm, while providing the freshest produce for yourself or your family, please consider participating in our CSA program.

You will also find us at Saturday markets in Albany and Corvallis.

Our prime directive is to care for the longterm health of our plants, animals, soil, water, and air--as well as the health of our bodies and our community.

Our growing practices are designed toward this goal. We do not hold or currently seek USDA organic certification, but our values lead us to significant overlap with USDA National Organic Standards.

Having worked in both certified organic and conventional agricultural environments, we have learned that certified organic methods are not always synonymous with longterm sustainability, and, to the contrary, increasingly cater to the needs of industry. On our farm, we try to make the best decisions for our own land and for our community. For us this means:

  • Intensive cover cropping and crop rotation
  • Carefully selected varieties for highest fresh market quality
  • No synthetic pesticides
  • No transgenic (GMO) varieties
  • We believe trust and transparency between farmers and consumers is extremely important, and we take very seriously the faith put in us as producers of your food. If you have any questions about our products or production methods, we are happy to talk with you.
