Terra Organics Events!
Yesterday, Secretary of Agriculture Tom Vilsack penned a blog post for the USDA’s new website, “Know Your Farmer, Know Your Food.” In it, he says, “Local and regional food systems are an important vehicle for many consumers to actually get to know a farmer. Everyone depends on a national network of farmers and ranchers, but I want to make sure we all get to actually know one. I believe it is important that those of us living off the farm better understand the struggles and sacrifices farmers, ranchers, and their families make to feed our nation. It’s not about one particular type of agriculture, it’s about all of agriculture and making sure that folks appreciate and understand that connection.”
It wasn’t that long ago that Kim and I did everything for Terra Organics ourselves – all of the growing, harvesting, packing, delivering, etc. But now it’s turned into a bigger operation, one that we feel can have a bigger impact on promoting local and organic agriculture, and one that also now relies on many wonderful, creative, hard-working and dedicated individuals.
We’d like to invite you to come spend some time with us – get to know your farmers and those that make the farm and distribution business work – at two upcoming events at Tahoma Farms:
- The first is a monthly event, geared towards the little people. July’s Kids Day at the Farm includes a Children’s Garden, a strawberry patch to graze through, a picnic party and baby pool!! Thursday, July 22nd, 10am – 11am. 21108 Orville Rd E, Orting, 98360;
- Terra Organics Member Appreciation Day – Sunday, August 22nd. We will be hosting farm tours during the day and are making plans for a potluck/BBQ in the evening. More details in the coming weeks but put it on your calendar now!!
We hope to get the chance to meet you, the one who makes it all possible, at one of our upcoming events.

Here in the Pacific Northwest, we’re finally coming into spring. It’s time for a welcome bit of sunshine and an opportunity to celebrate coming out of winter with light, fresh meals. Two of my favorite fruits to get in my produce box are grapefruit and avocado. Yes, believe it or not, avocado is a fruit!
