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.

Lakeside Organic Gardens

The Peixoto family began farming in the Pajaro Valley of California in the late 1800’s and perfected conventional growing throughout the 1900’s. As their passions for harvesting the riches of the soil grew and evolved, the family made a committed decision to convert all their farms to 100% organic. Lakeside Organic Gardens was launched by Dick Peixoto and his extended family in 1996. Dick first converted the farm that he and his brother, Jim, had farmed beans on so many years earlier when Dick was in high school. The 55-acre ranch includes a lake, a white farmhouse and an old-fashioned water tower with a windmill on top. This location became the inspiration for the Lakeside Organic Gardens logo, which includes this very farmhouse and water tower amidst the rolling hills. Once Dick got the “bug” for organic farming, things took off. Every year Lakeside Organic Gardens increases in acreage and commodities. Now they grow on approximately 1,200 certified organic acres in the Pajaro Valley. And in order to keep a steady supply for customers through the winter, they grow on approximately 600 certified organic acres in the Imperial Valley in California. Today, the company is still family-owned and operated with more than 10 family members on the Lakeside team!

Siri & Sons

Joe and Alma Siri are continuing a tradition of growing high quality vegetables started by Antonio Siri, Joe’s great-grandfather, an Italian immigrant. The main crops on their 180 acre farm – bell peppers, celery, cucumbers, cilantro, radishes, spinach, green onions, and four types of lettuce – “have been perfected over generations.” Everything is grown organically using sustainable farming practices.

Joe and his crew packs radishes, spinach, broccoli, onions and lettuce bound for New Seasons Markets in reusable containers instead of the industry standard disposable waxed boxes as part of the Siri’s ongoing effort to create a sustainable distribution system. The program kept 8,000 wax boxes out of the waste stream thanks to a small grant from the Clackamas County Recycling department to OGC.

Siri and Sons supplies their sumptuous spinach to Portland area schools. The farm-school connection was forged in December, 2006 by Ecotrust, a Portland nonprofit organization.
