Glory B Farm

Glory B Farms is nestled in the Grays River Valley just 2 miles from the historic Grays River Covered Bridge. Tom Zimmerman, his wife April and their four daughters live on the family farm. Tom has been farming since his teens, when his family moved to the valley in 1976.

He started with a small patch behind the house and now has 17 acres of cropland on two different sites. One field is on the wet side of the west coast range and the other is in the rain shadow. Having land in these two separate microclimates allows Tom an extended harvest season, including some really good shoulder season kales and collards.

Washington State Certified Organic since 1993, Glory B was an early adopter of the standards, and is proud to hold cert #468, in a state now issuing certs numbered over 2000.

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!

Ralphs Greenhouse

Ralph de Vries moved his family from the Netherlands in the 1950’s, when his son Ray was a toddler. After Ralph retired from the dairy business in the late 80’s, Ray took over managing the farm. Ray De Vries and Tim Terpstra (Ray’s lead hand) start their leeks in greenhouses, but if you look in Ray’s plastic frames in the summer and fall, you will find tomatillos, cilantro and other Mexican greens, as 30 employees raise fresh vegetables for their traditional lunches.

Ray’s leeks are stunning, with long thick stalks of white “meat” – the stuff that good winter soup is made of. Growing over 45 acres makes him the leek king, supplying customers all over North America through the winter, when all but a few southern States and virtually all of Canada are locked in winter’s grip.

Leeks keep Ray’s permanent work force occupied year-round. Carrots are another natural crop that grows superbly in the local soil. Ray and Tim Terpstra try new ideas every year to take advantage of their moderate climate and expand their long-season selection of vegetables for their regional customers.

Two Ee’S

Named for founders Emil and Elizabeth Kowalski, Two EE’s was first established as a dairy farm and fruit stand before WWII and ran steadily on a modest scale until it was purchased by the Schoen family in 1960. Ambitious young horticulturist Henk Schoen and his wife Jenny expanded the fruit and produce selection of the farm, raising nine children on the flourishing, expanding property.

Henk was naturally drawn to chemical-free farming as he watched early fertilizers and pesticides hit the market, many of them derivatives of toxic gases used in warfare. Since the 60’s he experimented with natural fertilizers and pest control on his own. Henk’s youngest son Mike, who holds a Horticulture Technician ceritificate and a diploma in Greenhouse Management, now manages organic growing on the farm. For him, organics are something he has known since childhood, an inspiring element of his family history and, with six children of his own, a promise of a bright and healthy future.

Two EEs has a great website – Check it out!
