If you've ever been to visit us at the farm, you probably heard some stories about Gene Kahn. Gene founded Cascadian Farm, turning his vision into reality in the early 1970s. Many of you have even shared your stories of picking berries at the farm, or helping to build our roadside stand where we sold organic produce, jams, and homemade ice cream.
We've grown since then, and started selling our food at local farmers markets and coops around the Pacific Northwest. Today, as you know, you can find our organic cereal, granola bars, and frozen fruits & vegetables at many grocery stores around the country. But our mission hasn't changed: to pioneer organic farming methods, and bring great tasting and wholesome organic food from the farm to your table.
But for you old-schoolers (and our new friends too), we wanted to share this picture of Gene Kahn on the tracker back in 1972:
It's really true what they say about a "farmer's tan" isn't it?
