A new season, a new Farm Stand manager! My name is Cassie, and I just joined the crew at Minto Island Growers. I am positively stoked to be spending the 2014 season in Oregon. After growing up in Montana, I spent three years on the east coast, and I am happy to be back in the best/the west. Drop in and say hi, list off all the Montana towns you can, and feel free to discuss your favorite breed of chicken, the best varieties of pumpkin, biscuit and gravy wisdom, or Beethoven’s 9th. I look forward to meeting the MIG community.

We are also pleased to welcome a new flower whisperer to the Farm Stand, Susan! Susan will be making and selling beautiful cut flowers and arrangements at the stand this year. Want to impress your friends? Make new ones? Show your family that you care about supporting local, living art? Her bouquets are the true path.

Looking Forward…

Besides all the wonderful vegetables, fruits, herbs, and seedlings at the Farm Stand, the Food Cart will be opening in June! We are excited to once again be offering edibles showcasing our produce, and of course, milkshakes.
