Community

Thank you customers and friends for supporting local, family businesses such as ours. We believe in preseving the delicate balance of nature by not using harmful chemicals on our farm. Farming this way is labor intensive but results in a more vital, healthy world for us all.

Earth & Sky Farm believes that building and supporting community is essential.

In 2009, during our first holiday season, we were able to get involved with Rugby Oregon and support the local Girls West Linn Team. A long-time friend of the farm has worked with the team for years, dedicating countless volunteer hours providing the opportunity to explore rugby to so many... we wanted to applaud and assist in supporting his efforts. During the 2009 season, Earth & Sky Farm was able to donate supplies and space for the Rugby Oregon Girls West Linn Team to make wreaths and swags from Grand & Noble Fir cuttings. Rugby Oregon is a local non-profit organization formed in 1999 to promote physical fitness, teamwork and leadership skills through the game of rugby.

2009 and 2010 holiday seasons Earth & Sky Farm was proud to support the Glen Hay Falconer Foundation, donating $1 from the sale of each choose & cut tree sale to the foundation.

The Glen Hay Falconer Foundation is a non-profit organization created to commemorate and celebrate the life, interests, and good works of a well-loved and leading Northwest brewer. The mission of the Foundation is to contribute to the Northwest craft brewing community by providing opportunities for professional and aspiring brewers to further their knowledge and expertise. http://www.glenfalconerfoundation.org/

In 2012, Earth & Sky Farm was able to support local Boy Scout Troop 149 with a donation of 300 trees, as we prepared .5 acre for our new orchard site our on the farm. The local Troop has been selling cut trees for over 20 years now as a primary source of fundraising for the year. We were happy to be able to substantially assist their efforts during the 2012 season. Read more about their tradition in this Oregon Live Article from 12/12/11.
