Our farm, which is entirely Certified Organic by Oregon Tilth, is 67 acres in total. We cultivate market vegetables on about 4 acres per year. In addition to our fruit orchard, we harvest raspberries and wild blackberries for market sales and for making delicious preserves. We raise Boer goats, Katahdin sheep, and Muskovey ducks for meat and eggs. In addition, the livestock contribute to the biodynamics of this farm by generating a plethora of fertilizer and by keeping weeds and nuisance insects at bay as they graze and forage. We are proud of our conservation efforts on the forested watershed and wetlands on the property, and we plant native vegetation that attracts and sustains native pollinators.

How We Get All That Work Done!

Greg and Ellen would not be able to produce fine fruits and vegetables, care for livestock, and steward their lands were it not for the assistance of volunteers through Willing Workers On Organic Farms (WWOOF).  Across the years, Greg and Ellen have hosted dozens of folks eager to get their hands dirty and learn about organic farming practices.  Because no herbicides are used on the farm, many, many hours of labor are spent pulling weeds.  Primarily, three invasive exotic weeds plague the farmlands: tansy ragwort (Jacobaea vulgaris), which can sicken or kill livestock, Scotch broom (Cytisus scoparius), and Bull thistle (Cirsium vulgaree).
