2018: Joining MFM throughout the season.
Quackenbush Farm is a small-scale, diversified veggie farm outside Portland.
We specialize in growing unique, heirloom, PNW adapted varieties that you can’t find in grocery stores.
- Our growing practices exclude the use of pesticides or synthetic chemicals.
- We focus on nutrient density and flavor in our produce, not uniformity and long haul shipping.
- Our farm is open to the community for tours, field trips, educational events and seasonal gatherings.
Quackenbush Farm started in 2014 in Ridgefield, Washington as partnership between 4 friends. They were young, motivated, and wanted to grow a business based around community health and vitality.
Each contributed a thousand dollars as startup, or seed money, and kept their day jobs. They found a rental with property with a brave landlord and within a month of signing the lease, plowed the field. Over the years the farm has evolved, growing and reaching new markets and customers.
The small CSA, the first iteration of the farm, has now grown into a larger CSA, farmer’s markets, restaurants, and a farm stand. In 2017 the farm found a permanent home when Matt and Jennifer purchased 18 acres in Eagle Creek, Oregon.
