We will be sharing information about our vendors, maybe even weekly, since we have so many. And while they are familiar to many already, more information never hurts.
This week we’re focusing on Goodfoot Farm and we’re posting some pictures taken a couple weeks ago of their beautiful vegetables. They’ve provided some information below and you can also take a look at their website.
Our small family farm is located on the banks of the Luckiamute River in the Hoskins area of Kings Valley, Oregon (20 miles northwest of Corvallis). Our mission is to provide unconventionally grown food for the people of our local community. To us, unconventionally grown means we take a systems approach in our efforts to balance our food production with our responsibility for our local forest, field and river life and with the health of our planet. We work hard to minimum our use of off-farm and petroleum dependent inputs and practice a method of agriculture that strives to emulate a natural system. Fundamental to the success of our production system is the integration of animals for fertility and weed management, our selection of crops and cultivars for pest and disease control and our practice of “farmscaping” which provides habitat for native pollinators and natural predators of pests. We are Demeter Certified Biodynamic® as well as certified organic by Stellar Certification Services.
