When our founder and his family first purchased farmland in the Willamette Valley, they didn’t just envision what the land might become, they recalled what it once was. On some of the properties were wetlands that had been buried or overrun with invasive species.
Restoring the land to healthy, fertile farmland was an ambitious and costly endeavor. Many said it couldn’t be done. But by working closely with the Wetlands Conservancy, the wetlands in Deer Creek, Hedges Creek and Three Sisters have been reborn.
Today, they filter water and offer a valuable habitat for birds and other wildlife. And if the land there is that healthy, imagine what the food we grow there is like.
