A bit about the farm...
MIG is a diversified farm and nursery located in South Salem next to Minto Brown Island Park. Co-owned and operated by Chris Jenkins and Elizabeth Miller Jenkins, 2013 will be our sixth growing season. Chris and Elizabeth lease the land owned by the Miller family and began the transition to organic fruit and vegetable production in 2008. Many existing native plant, mint and poplar projects that were begun by the Miller family under Mt. Jefferson Farms Inc. in the 70's are continued today on the farm and nursery, and at other farm locations in Oregon. See the meet the farmers page for more detailed history of the our farm.
MIG has been under organic certification through Oregon Tilth since 2009. ALL of our land is farmed under the USDA's NOP (National Organic Program) standards, but we view this as just a starting point for our mangement practices- please see the meet the farmers page for more info about our growing practices.
In addition to growing plants of all types, we are dedicated to making connections with our local community, supporting the local economy and nurturing our farm ecosystem with ecological growing practices and stewardship. The farm thrives from a dedicated and ever changing crew of workers- from veterans such as Francisco, to new students in the Food Cart from the South Salem High school Culinary Program, we are proud to have such a passionate, hard working crew!
