Is it the chill in the air? The early darkness punctuated by flickering lights? Maybe it’s the smell of winter foods cooking. It’s feeling like that beautiful time of year in the Northwest. What do you love -- the smell of a pie coming out of the oven? A hot bowl of your favorite soup? The smell of a warming wood fire and melted marshmallows? Some of our favorite parts of the season are those times we slow down and bundle up with family and friends and venture out to choose a Christmas tree or take a quiet walk in the wet leaves. There’s no need to feel bottled up in the house. Come visit your local farms to set the season off right!

The crops are in, harvest is winding down, and as we wait for our tree farm members to celebrate their favorite season with customers, we take a moment to reflect on a great year of Tri-County outreach. We reached customers on behalf of member farms through the annual printed Farm Guide (a farm favorite), the TriCountyFarm.org website, through social media, in print media outlets and through a new partnership with Red Tricycle. We’ll tell you more about each.

Locally grown fresh fruits and vegetables are best, containing the most flavor and nutrients. Tri-county puts you in direct contact with farmers offering farm-fresh produce to the Portland metropolitan area. By visiting the farms yourself, you cut out the middleman and are assured of the freshest produce possible. With over 60 member farms in Clackamas, Multnomah, and Washington counties, you are certain to find a farm offering market fresh produce, organics, and wholesome food in your area.
