For the last 37 years, we’ve been proud to deliver quality food that’s certified organic and guaranteed delicious. We started out with a little farm in the Skagit Valley of Washington, selling our berries and jams at the Pike Place Market in Seattle. Since then, we’ve expanded quite a bit and now sell our fruits, vegetables, cereals, bars, and other products in co-ops and grocery stores across the country. Over the years, our commitment to producing and sourcing delicious organic ingredients, grown without chemical fertilizers or pesticides, has never wavered.
One resource that has been essential to Cascadian Farm and our farming partners is the Organic Farming Research Foundation (OFRF). OFRF’s mission is to “foster the improvement and widespread adoption of organic farming systems.” They do this by sponsoring organic research projects funded through their grant- making program. They also distribute the findings of these projects to organic farmers and conventional growers who are interested in converting their farms to organic. Ultimately, OFRF strives to convert more farm land into organic acres through the education of farmers, the public, and government agencies.
Cascadian Farm has supported OFRF since its inception in 1990. Working together, we’ve seen thousands of acres of land converted from conventional farms to organic farm systems — saving literally tons of chemicals from ending up in our rivers, lakes, and ecosystems. In addition, OFRF provides resources and information to help farmers achieve higher yields, lower pest and disease levels, and run profitable organic farms.
“Personally, I have worked with Gene Kahn, Cascadian Farm’s founder, and his team for decades. More recently, we have worked together on policy-related issues, shared research-related results, and supported the free exchange of ideas among the men and women of the organic farming industry. Cascadian Farm has supported OFRF since the day it was founded.”
-Bob Scowcroft, Executive Director, OFRF
