Tanager Farm is run by Brindley and Spencer, who have been farming together for a few seasons in Oregon. We are first generation farmers who started our farm business in Gresham, Oregon with the help of the Headwaters Incubator Program. We are going into our third season and we are growing in exciting new ways! Tanager Farm is now based in Corbett, and in addition to expanding our CSA program in 2018, we’re adding a flower CSA! We have Jennie joining us for a second season of seed saving projects and flowers!

Our vision is to make local vegetables accessible and exciting for our community. We are growing spray-free, seasonal vegetables on an acre and a half of land for local businesses such as P’s & Q’s Market and Rubinette Produce, while also providing a CSA for people who love vegetables or want to learn to love them. Thank you for supporting us and other small farms who believe in sustainability and community!

  Brindley has been vegetable farming since 2010. She has worked in many unique places; including a market garden, a non-profit urban farm, a horticultural therapy flower farm, and a production produce farm. Because of these diverse experiences, she has taken on many different roles and learned about several different models for a farm business. She is excited to be able to plant what she loves, while building soil and community around good food.

  Jennie has been farming   since 2006.   She has helped to   manage sustainable small-scale farms in a diversity of communities. Over the years she has developed a passion for seed saving and seed stories.   Exploring the points at which seed and in turn food connect people and place, has shown her how seeds and food can truly help to maintain and grow a living food culture. Jennie looks forward to maintaining and growing a dynamic food culture with you!
