Now to defend organics just a little, there are people out there doing it right and coming up with some great ideas. When they do, we work them into our operation as much as possible.

There, that's my rant for the day!

BUMP!!!
My buddy who has a filbert farm tried to go organic for a couple of years........................production went way down so he went back to the way his Dad taught him.

Yes. Thank you for knowing their REAL name. But, now you've let out one of the few secret things only a true Orygun native knows. What's next? Calling green beans "Blue Lakes" in public? Giving out the secret handshake? Flashing the secret "Orygun gang" hand signs: ?

Sheesh. Now everybody will know!

I assume it was in Marion County, but I think the "how" is something that should have been thought through more carefully, at the time.

But then, I have had them only in boughten pie, so I guess that is not a fair assessment.

When I was a young kid we regularly visited a family that had a farm near Woodburn, a truck farm, Old country work ethics,, everybody works, migrant pickers, kids, everybody in rubber boots,let's get out there!,,strawberries, Marionberrys, Loganberrys. and acres of other good eatable healthy stuff.
Marion berry (to me as a kid) was a 'jacked up on steroids' blackberry, you could pick a mouthfull without getting stabbed with thorns,Yummy!,while the same could be imagined for the Loganberry being a hyper raspberry,although,they tasted watered down to me, and I liked the little tight hard raspberries down in the "old patch", where the old dairy cow (a Jersey, I think, she was light brown with big eyes and friendly to little kids) hung out,, across the road from the homestead.

I was a fail at strawberry picking, I could always eat more than I could put in the flats,pick pick pick,,,Oooh, Look at THAT one,,nom nom nom,,

,did okay with the chickens and aigs,, and lernt yer NOT spozed to give the pigs a hosing to wash the mud off!
LEAVE THE MUD ON THE PIGS!
Mostly I just ate the frikken berries,,and baby cucumbers,,Mmmm,, there were miles of both in my 8 yr old mind. I lernt a lot from those wonderful folks, all good value shit most kids miss nowadays.
Those types of farms are nearly gone now I think.
