Between all the sugary cereals or “nutrition” bars that are loaded with artificial ingredients, finding something healthy and wholesome for breakfast that will keep you fueled throughout the day can be a struggle. That’s why brands like Cascadian Farm are urging the food industry to think differently about how we nourish ourselves and our families. Rather than fill kitchen staples like breakfast cereal, snack bars, or frozen foods, with tons of preservatives, Cascadian Farm believes in keeping things as uncomplicated as possible. That means relying on regenerative, organic farming that keeps the land and the food healthy and untouched as possible and working with other farms to do the same. Learn how this Certified Organic brand puts the earth first in more ways than one.
The History of Cascadian Farm
Cascadian Farm got its start over 40 years ago when founder Gene Kahn decided to take up farming in 1972 in such a way that would preserve the earth and its inhabitants. He began with a plot of land in the Cascade Mountains of Washington and soon discovered that more like-minded farmers were needed to make lasting change. Eventually the farm evolved into a pioneer in regenerative, organic farming, and a brand that provides nourishing food for future generations.
Cascadian Farm Company Mission
Armed with the same sustainable farming methods upon which the brand is founded, Cascadian Farm is now run by a farmer named Jim Meyer who leads a farming team to grow organic crops and protect the local ecosystem. While the brand has grown, the company’s core mission remains the same: to preserve the wholesome foods Mother Nature as already perfected.
Benefits of Cascadian Farm
Although Cascadian Farm has since outgrown its original farm in Rockport, WA, the brand continues to source ingredients from Certified Organic farms throughout the country and world to make each delicious product. The brand also realizes that it has the power to make a true difference beyond just the food it produces. It carefully selects partners who share this same mission. That means working together with other farms who employ sustainable farming practices that work with local ecosystems and growing wholesome, organic food.
While its grown beyond its original location, Cascadian Farm’s original Home Farm remains a working organic farm, growing blueberries, raspberries, strawberries, sweet corn, and pumpkins. Customers are encouraged to visit the facilities and get a taste of all the brand has to offer.
