Andersen Organics

Andersen Organics

Denise and Brian Andersen, along with their two daughters, farm in the beautiful Columbia Basin, near Othello Washington. Being born and raised on a farm “infused farming in their blood,” so they began farming in 1984, only four years after graduating from high school. Working with the land and considering the value of soil health and productivity lead to the Andersen’s desire to become certified organic.“Organic farming has become a rewarding way to farm. We enjoy the challenge of producing a healthy crop…it never ceases to amaze us just how good a crop can be when it is grown in healthy soil.” Because being stewards of the land is an integral part of the Andersen Family’s farming philosophy, water conservation is a high priority. One way they conserve this valuable natural resource is by using drip irrigation. During harvest time, instead of throwing out the used drip tape, the Andersen’s retrieve and recycle it. Brian says, “This is an enormous task, but one that we feel is worth the effort. Learning is a daily process when your farming partner is Mother Nature.”The Andersen family strives to grow and ship the highest quality product. One of the ways they do this is by applying composted manures months before planting. By doing this, they are planting their onions into very healthy soil. Their label statement is “GROWN HEALTHIER” and it truly is.

Coke Farm

In 1981, a conventional farmer bet Dale Coke that he couldn’t grow organic strawberries. He has now been growing organic fruits and vegetables in Northern California for more than two decades. With a strong commitment to sustainability and good agricultural practices, Coke Farm prides itself in the quality produce, customer satisfaction, and the year-round employment that it provides to the local community. The planting and harvesting of dozens of crop varieties, seed crops, and the growing of specialty produce are a few of the examples of what Coke Farm does.

Originally started as a small planting of strawberries and snow peas, Coke Farm has evolved to a full-scale vegetable farm with over fifty crop varieties harvested each year. From Amaranth to Zucchini, Coke Farm’s produce can be found in local markets, renowned restaurants, and specialty stores throughout North America. Christine, Dale’s partner, focuses on helping smaller local farms with limited production sell their crops commercially, bringing a variety of rare West Coast specialties into Canada.

Today, in addition to growing and shipping their own produce, Coke Farm also cools, stores, and ships for several local organic farms.

Devine Organics

Devine Organics has its roots in Double D Farms, a conventional produce company which began as an almond grower in 1986. In the mid-1990s, Double D Farms started growing organics, reflecting the burgeoning interest of owners Don and Elvia Devine in producing organic products. Devine Organics was the natural result of this focus, and today the Devine Organics division of the company represents all of their organic commodities. With nearly 75 percent of the business now focused on organics, the new company identity reflects this shift. Today, Double D Farms is the brand representing their conventional produce. Whether conventionally or organically grown, you can trust that the highest standards for quality and safety are met to bring your family the freshest produce available.
