Pumpkin Ridge Gardens

Pumpkin Ridge Gardens
Pumpkin Ridge Gardens is a 25 acre family farm operating exclusively as a CSA farm since 1990 (we do not sell to restaurants or stores). We offer HOME DELIVERY and a 12 MONTH HARVEST SEASON. We rely on compost and cover crops for fertility and only use organic (i.e. OMRI LISTED) materials on the rare occasions we need to take additional steps to protect our crops.

We are James Just and Polly Gottesman, owners of Pumpkin Ridge Gardens since 1990. We have four children: Seth, Eli and twins, Kate and Meg (all now in their 20’s). We both work on the farm full time and employ one full-time farm worker, a seasonal worker and a driver, who also works on the farm. Pumpkin Ridge Gardens is 25 rolling acres located only 22 miles west of Portland near North Plains. Since 1987, the farm has been carefully tended to eliminate the adverse effects of commercial strawberry production. From 1990 to 2002 we were certified as organic growers with the state of Oregon. We grow our vegetables in accordance with the organic standards established by law and use only materials approved by organic certification organizations. While our farming techniques have not changed, federal law prohibits us from calling our produce “organic” without third-party certification. So far, we have decided to spare our customers the expense of certification. Our philosophy is that the best way for you, the consumer, to feel good about how your food is grown is to know your farmer. We also believe that healthy soil grows healthy food and therefore rely on compost and cover crops for fertility. We encourage you to visit the farm, see how we grow the vegetables, participate in our work if you choose, and most of all, ask any questions you might have.
