Our 14 acre farm is a diverse mix of sloping pastures and low-land river valley, half of which is a seasonal wetland and refuge for migrating birds all through the winter. We came to this property in 2006, after spending the previous seven years growing our skills as vegetable growers, along with our passion for local food systems and safe, nutrient dense food. In 2007, we began a small-scale farm business.
On approximately 2 acres we grow over 70 different varieties of annual and perennial vegetables which we sell through our CSA (community-supported agriculture) program as well as at two McMinnville farmer's markets. Although we have opted not to become certified organic because we sell all of our produce directly to our customers, we are familiar with organic requirements and fulfill them by purchasing mostly organic seed when it is available, practicing crop rotation, and continually working towards soil improvement, always striving to balance the equation of taking from this soil to grow food and putting back in, in multiple forms (cover crops, compost, sheet mulching, organic soil amendments), what we have taken plus more.
