Farming in one of the fertile canyons of northern Deschutes County, Deschutes Canyon Garlic specializes in growing unique and flavorful varieties of certified organic seed garlic. We strive to produce seed garlic of exceptional quality, meticulously grading our harvest to ensure our customers will grow beautiful, vigorous garlic in their gardens and on their farms. The arid climate and sandy loam soils of Central Oregon's high desert are uniquely suited to growing clean, disease-free, seed quality garlic. Our garlic farm is certified organic by Oregon Tilth, and we are devoted to building fertility on the farm through the practices of cover cropping, compost application and crop rotation. Growing garlic is our passion and we hope it's yours too!
Mahonia Gardens is a one-acre market garden operating is Sisters, Oregon, dedicated to growing quality produce. We provide food to Sisters and Bend. Labor on the farm is done by hand, using ergonomic handtools including broadforks, the wheel hoe, and digging forks to create and maintain beds. While we are not certified organic, we use absolutely no harmful chemicals in our production - no pesticides, herbicides, chemical fertilizers or anything. 2022 will be our 10th season as a market farm. We grow around 40 vegetable crops, as well as herbs and flowers. We sell primarily through our farm stand and through Central Oregon Locavore and Agricultural Connections.
About DD Ranch: Located in beautiful Central Oregon, DD Ranch raises 100% grass fed/finished beef and lamb, heritage pork, eggs from free-range hens, and raw honey from happy bees. Much of our livestock are heritage breeds, promoting genetic diversity. We promote a closed system. While we are not certified organic, we do follow organic practices and have reseeded our pastures with OMRI-certified alfalfa. Our pastures are not sprayed, nor do we use chemical fertilizers. We do not use hormones or antibiotic feed for our livestock. We will be working with the Savory Institute beginning in 2021 to employ regenerative pasture management practices to further our knowledge of sustainable agriculture.
We believe that happy and healthy stock makes for happy and healthy families.
The ranch provides access to the stunning countryside setting of the Smith Rock area. We offer memorable ranch adventures such as school field trips, hunting, private events, weddings, and more. We believe in promoting a strong local community and host annual events such as our Pumpkin Patch and the Great Harvest OCR 5K.
We hope you’ll join us.
