Camas Swale Farm
Jonah Bloch and Amber Lippert seeded Camas Swale Farm together in 2009. As of late 2014, the farm is located at its permanent home, two miles north of the historic town of Coburg, Oregon, on 16 acres of river bottom land. Here you’ll find us growing soil, habitat, and a diversity of vegetables, herbs, flowers and berries.
Our methods emphasize nutrient cycling with compost and cover crops, and pest management through prevention including companion planting, row cover, and providing habitat for beneficial insects. What you will not find us using are genetically modified seeds, sewage sludge, irradiation, synthetic fertilizers or pesticides.
Camas Swale Farm’s Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) membership welcomes you to connect with the farm and people where your food is grown. In its simplest form a farm community member contributes a certain amount to the farm at the beginning of the growing season, when seeds, fertilizers and other resources are purchased and planted. In return you become a member of the farm and receive a weekly share of the best produce the farm has to offer (over 30 types) and some fruit, herbs and flowers; along with weekly newsletters with recipes; and opportunities to visit the farm for events such as farm potlucks. Members also receive 10% off farm stand purchases. Our farm stand is located in South Eugene and open on Sundays Jun-Oct.
Each weekly share typically contains (among the other seasonal items) a cooking green, a root vegetable and an herb or seasoning (e.g. basil, parsley). The rest of the farm share is a mix of seasonal produce and sometimes flowers or fruit. Salad lovers can choose salad add-on.
Payment options are available including monthly plans. The cost is less when you submit payment before April 1st.
