Our Farm The Farm Our Story

You already know that Cascadian Farm® is one of the country's leading brands of organic foods. But Cascadian Farm is also a real place — a working, active, productive farm dedicated to bringing wholesome organic food to your table.

The story of Cascadian Farm begins with the story of our founder, Gene Kahn. 40 years ago, Gene was an idealistic 24-year old grad-school dropout from Chicago, who just wanted to make a difference in the world. He recognized the delicate balance between nature and humans. Inspired by reading “Silent Spring” and “Diet For A Small Planet”, Gene wanted to go back to the land and farm in a way that would not harm the natural beauty of the earth or her inhabitants. So he set out to farm organically on a little stretch of land next to the Skagit River in the Cascade Mountains of Washington.

Today Cascadian Farm has grown beyond our original farm and is recognized as a pioneer in converting conventional farms to organic. Cascadian Farm also realizes that we can make a difference beyond just the food that we produce. That’s why we work with partners who share our mission. Working together, we can help sustain the health of the earth for all living creatures today, tomorrow and for generations to come.
