Welcome to Braeside Farms
A Small Farm in the Foothills of Oregon’s Cascades
Braeside Farms is a family owned and operated farm. We have been involved in sustainable farming since childhood. In 1998 we began raising a wide variety of vegetable crops and livestock for sale to customers in the Portland Oregon Metro Area. That effort became one of the early success stories of the Oregon Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) movement. In recent years we have begun to focus more and more of our growing efforts on seeds, honey bees, and sustainable forestry. These crops grow well on our farm and they allow us to enjoy the most sustainable parts of our farming business.
The farm is located between Colton and Estacada, Oregon in the West Cascades of the Northern Willamette Valley. Our elevation is 1250′ and we have sunnier winter days than much of the valley. Crops are grown for customers in the Portland Metro area and beyond.
We hope you take some time to peruse our website. Included are hundreds of articles containing information about cooking and growing vegetables that thrive in NW Oregon and SW Washington. We also discuss methods for production of farm made biodiesel and fuel ethanol as well as other on farm generated biofuels. If you like what you see, send us an email, make a donation or buy something from one of our advertising sponsors, every bit helps to keep this site active.
We look forward to hearing from you soon,
Arika and Michael Menzies
