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.

Jacobs Farm – Del Cabo Organic

Having already created Jacobs Farm, a successful organic farming operation, and with a knack for developing niche markets, longtime organic farmers Larry Jacobs and Sandra Belin were confident in their vision for their next venture. In 1985, they encountered a community of struggling, subsistence-level farmers in Mexico, and the Del Cabo cooperative was conceived.

Harker’s Organics

“That’s my brothers in our first fruit stand right here on this spot…that must have been in the 50’s…see they’ve got a tomato, an oversized cucumber and three apples for sale,” Bruce laughs at the now faded black and white blow up hanging in the rafters of their landmark roadside stand. Bruce and Kathy Harker were some of the first in the Similkameen Valley to turn to organics. The area is now the Organic Capital of Canada, with over 80 certified organic orchardists, ground-croppers and vineyards. Both the Harkers and their neighbors the Nugterens are conservation partners with The Land Conservancy, getting involved in restoring native vegetation and protecting their part of the incredible valley.

Bruce and Kathy lived in Vancouver until they moved to Cawston to work the land that Bruce’s grandparents had worked. Fourth generation Harkers are now busy harvesting heirloom tomatoes, hot peppers, specialty squash and bins and bins of apples and pears. The Harker’s coordinate the packing and handling of tree fruit for many other area farmers, who pack, market and ship to markets in Canada and the U.S. in their “Harvest Moon” boxes.

Troy and Sara Harker now run the day-to-day operations overseeing the farm and the wholesale operations. They work with many of the growers in the Similkameen and Okanagan insuring high quality and superb service with everything they do.

Heirloom Gardens

In a lush green valley flooded with cool coastal breezes, Grant Brians specializes in growing heirloom varietals. Harvested young, his tender baby greens offer tons of flavor and directly reflect the tasty benefits of organic agriculture. His farm was the second to be certified in California (1976) and the first to be certified in the Santa Clara Valley. Today he grows over 100 varieties of organic fruits and vegetables.

All of Grant’s plants are open pollinated, inter-cropped (planted together) and harvested by hand. His full time, year-round staff takes exceptional care of each varietal. The results are well appreciated—his harvest has long been sought after by California chefs and can be found on plates in many of the best restaurants in the Bay Area.
