Threemile Canyon Farms
Located in a remote corner of northeastern Oregon on the Columbia River, Threemile Canyon Farms grows organic onions, potatoes and other crops on over 1000 acres of certified organic cropland. They are strong advocates for agricultural land preservation, and in 2003 they set aside 23,000 acres of undisturbed juniper and sage habitat - 25% of the property's 145 square miles - in permanent protection under The Nature Conservancy's management.
Besides setting virgin land aside for conservation, and using organic agricultural practices, the company takes additional steps to protect the environment around cultivated areas. The native shrub-steppe is extremely susceptible to fire and invasion by foreign species. Threemile Canyon is diligent about reseeding the borders of fields with native plant species and implementing aggressive fire protection measures.
