Eatmore

Eatmore Sprouts is one of B.C.’s best organic success stories. Eatmore brand sprouts are found at most natural food stores and major grocery retailers across the West Coast. Eatmore produces over 10 different sprout mixes from greenhouses in the Comox Valley (north Vancouver Island). Glen and Carmen Wakeling are the principals of Eatmore Sprouts, and they have been harvesting alfalfa, sunflower, clover and broccoli sprouts for 15 years. Glen says he finds that, to put it simply, “growing good food is very rewarding.”

Eatmore operates on three very efficcient acres of land that also includes a salad mix operation and an intensive market garden farm. The sprout operation includes composting and waste water management systems, and the soil is constantly renewed through careful cover-cropping.

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!

Myers Farm

Bob Myers can remember, as a youngster, clearing the land for their family hobby farm in the Fraser Valley. 40 years later, he’s still at it, having just finished putting in yet another 10 acre field recently to go with the 60 acres he, his wife Marlene and son Brock, have expanded over the past 2 decades.

This family operation is the major provider of high quality lettuces, chard, kales, parsley, bok choi, spinach and many more leafy green crops to a handful of major retailers in Vancouver, plus six wholesalers who serve organic stores and supermarkets as far away as Manitoba and the Yukon.

Nash’s Organic Produce

Nash Huber is a visionary who farms on the North Olympic Peninsula in Washington state. Because of the unique micro climate in Sequim, his farm, Nash’s Organic Produce, grows vegetables year round. It is famous for exceptionally sweet and full-flavored carrots, though Scott Chichester, field production manager, is constantly toying with adventurous over-wintering crops.

In 1999, Huber collaborated with PCC Natural Markets in Seattle to save farmland. The PCC Farmland Trust was created, and the 80-acre Delta Farm adjacent to Nash’s operations was purchased. Nash and his crew have a 30-year lease on the land, and it has become one of the central hubs of the operation and an integral part of Nash’s efforts to train the next generation of organic farmers. Today, Nash is fortunate to have a strong crew of young managers who are committed to the future of the farm and organic agriculture, including organic seed production.

In addition to high-quality organic produce, the farm also grows several kinds of grain, including red and white wheat, triticale, rye, and barley for animal feed. The livestock includes about 100 hogs and 200 laying hens. These animals are humanely raised on pasture. The farm is certified organic and Salmon-Safe.

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.

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.
