Quackenbush Farm is located in the beautiful Clackamas River Valley, about 30 minutes southeast of Portland. Our focus has primarily been diversified, organic, fresh market veggies, with an emphasis on heirloom and old-world varieties where flavor is more important than shelf-life. The farm is a thriving business with our main markets being our weekend farmer’s markets, wholesale (school districts), restaurants, and a small on-site farm stand.
Our production methods revolve around intensive, sustainable annual crop production. We are certified organic and utilize a variety of conservation practices to minimize our impact on the land and soil, including cover cropping, crop rotations, reduced tillage, pollinator plantings and hedgerows, and more.
We are seeking up to two part-time folks to work one to two days per week (8-20hrs/week) as our farmer’s market vendors in Milwaukie and Vancouver.
