Fox + Bear originated in 2013 as a biologically intensive quarter acre backyard farm in NE Portland, OR specializing in the production of high quality, hand-tended vegetables and herbs. In 2018, Fox + Bear relocated operations to Sauvie Island through a collaboration with Willow Bar Farm. This move provided more production space, and improved infrastructure needed to meet the growing demand for Fox + Bear’s unique specialty crops. Fox + Bear remains dedicated to staying small; always working hard at growing better before bigger – producing exceptional hyper-local produce with an attention to detail only possible at a micro-farming scale.

Fox + Bear employs biologically intensive, holistic growing methods in the production of all our crops. No sprays of any kind (even organic ones) are used on the farm. I rely on beneficial insects for pest control so I cultivate environments that will be attractive and habitable for them. I use compost, cover-cropping, and organic fertilizers to build soil fertility and structure. I use a permanent, no till bed system and use hand tools and human power for all my work. This allows me to produce high quality agricultural products while maintaining great respect and care for the land, living creatures, and the livelihood of farming.
