Abundant Harvest is a membership or CSA (Community Supported Agriculture) farming operation, providing a direct connection between the farmers and the people who enjoy eating fresh, seasonal produce grown at the farms. Families join our farm by purchasing seasonal memberships. In return for your financial support in advance, we plant and nurture an assortment of vegetables, herbs, some fruit and flowers. We harvest the produce at its peak of flavor and nutrition, and you pick it up soon afterward. Fresh and convenient! As members, our farm families get to know who’s growing their food and the methods we use. We grow your produce without synthetic herbicides, pesticides, or fertilizers so that you get all the goodness nature has to offer. Your membership supports locally grown, high quality, custom-harvested food, and it benefits us all. Joining our farming operation is ideal if you are interested in eating seasonally, preparing meals using fresh produce and supporting local farmers. We are growing a strong community in addition to growing healthy food!
Dos Sequoias Farm is on five beautiful acres in the historic Helvetia area of Washington County, Oregon. Two majestic redwood trees tower over Brian and Sharon Beinlich's farmhouse and they inspired the farm’s name. Scott and Robin Olsen’s ten acre property, New Earth Farm, is just several blocks away from Dos Sequoias Farm in this peaceful countryside. The farm owners provide field space for Steve and Mishelle Radtke, owners of Abundant Harvest, to grow the food that the members enjoy. The partnerships are founded on a shared vision of keeping Oregon’s prime farmland in agricultural production and helping foster a local, sustainable agricultural system to feed our community with fresh, healthy, seasonal produce.
