We are a family owned and operated farm in Boring Oregon committed to being good stewards of the land and producing healthy food for our neighbors. At Dolan Creek, we grow food the old-fashioned way: with sunshine, water and good compost. We refuse to use any pesticides, herbicides, chemical fertilizers or hormones. This beautiful 120 acre farm has been in the family for over 65 years. Come and enjoy the gardens, the animals and the scenic beauty of Dolan Creek and make this your farm.
We have many seasonal crops: fresh salad ingredients in June, raspberries in July, fresh garden vegetables in August and September, pumpkins and apples in October, grass fed beef in June and September, heritage turkeys in November and finishing the season with Christmas trees in December. We also produce farm fresh eggs year round.
Own a share of the bounty!
In order to keep this beautiful farm in operation we are looking for families who want to partner with us! Starting in the Spring of 2013 we will be starting our fourth CSA season (Community Supported Agriculture). The concept is quite simple: each year you buy a "share" of the harvest, becoming a "shareholder" of the farm. The yearly share price supports the actual costs of running the farm. In return, the farm supplies each shareholder with seasonal produce. Knowing that our produce is pre-sold, we can focus on what we do best..farming! For 20 weeks, beginning mid-June through mid-October, our CSA members can pick up their produce and enjoy the fruits and vegetables their partnership has made possible.
CSA share information:
We are SOLD OUT for the 2013 season.
Thankyou for your continued support.
CSA memberships received and paid in full by April 1st, 2013 are $550 for the full share and half shares are $350*. Half shares consist of half the items in our regular share and would be a good choice for couples. Regular shares are equivilent to 2 grocery bags of produce.
