You've found us! Welcome to the Even Pull Farm blog. We will update this space throughout the season with information and stories from the farm, recipes and techniques, photos, musings, and much more.
Even Pull Farm is the shared dream of Beth Satterwhite & Erik Grimstad. 2015 will be our first season farming on our own. Farmer Beth has worked on another small veggie operation for the past two seasons, as well as being a freelance farm helper for other small farms in the area and a farmer organizer with the Yamhill Valley Farmers Network & FarmON! Oregon. Farmer Erik has supported Beth through this time, earning a respectable income and the like (thanks Erik!), and has enjoyed helping out as her partner in crime and as a freelance farm helper. In 2014 the itch to do something of our own became too much to ignore, and we started taking steps toward starting our own operation.
We will be leasing a beautiful little corner of the Yamhill Valley in western Oregon, which we call home. The ground we will be growing on is owned by Christensen Farms, a large multi-generation operation and a longstanding member of the local farming community. We are thrilled to be working with Christensen Farms and grateful for the opportunity to build our solo-farming chops this season.
Currently we are in the planning process for our 2015 season (think: spreadsheets and lots of paperwork). We hope you will check back in for farm updates, product information, and to stay connected with us as we begin our farming journey!
