RiverHouse Farm

On the banks of Crystal Springs Creek near the confluence of Johnson Creek in Sellwood lies RiverHouse Farm. Where once a duplex stood is now an 8000 sq ft intensive urban farm, which has been has been in cultivation as community agricultural space for over twenty years.

RiverHouse Farm CSA offers some of the freshest, local, love-grown vegetables, herbs, fruit, flowers and plant starts around. We use organic practices and then some, including Integrated Pest Management, Biodynamic, and Permaculture principles. We've been building the soil here for years using cover crops, on-site composting, worms, and aerated compost teas. Over the years we have restored and created a lovely habitat that is home to a growing community of bees, birds and beneficial insects.

Our CSA offers weekly produce pickups twice a week, Thursdays at RiverHouse Farm and Sundays at the Hawthorne Urban Farmers Market.

RiverHouse offers two styles of pickup plans for you. We can make up a weekly box for you or let you assemble your own box with our market-style option. Each week you'll also receive a newsletter with farm news, storage and handling tips, and recipes you can use with the week's bounty.

This season we'll have cooking and preserving workshops to help you learn what to do with all the bounty. 6-8 pm on Thursday distribution days at RiverHouse Farm, there is no charge to attend for CSA members.

CSA members are also encouraged to visit the farm and get more involved with how your food is grown, or join us for one of the farm gatherings we hold throughout the season.

Contact us and arrange a visit to see RiverHouse Farm for yourself.
