Fry Family Farm has been farming in the Rogue Valley since 1990. We are the largest producer of certified organic vegetables, flowers, plants and berries in the valley.
Fry Family Farm has more than 90 acres of certified organic crops in production at several farms sites in Medford, Phoenix, Talent and Ashland. Each offers a slightly different climate and soil type providing a perfect ground for our vegetable, fruit, flower, and plant starts.
Our main farm is our largest property and where we do everything from starting all of our seeds to distributing the produce that we grow at all our farm sites. This location is home to our newest green building facility where we’ll see you at The Farm Store and where all our vegetables are washed and packed in the food hub before they leave the farm for markets. The building is equipped with a commercial kitchen, cold, frozen and dry storage available to rent. In 2013 we built a barn at this site that holds our solar system.
The fields in Phoenix are used in rotation for a variety of crops. Many of our perennial cut flowers are grown there as well.
At our home farm in Talent we have 4 large greenhouses for our plant starts. This is also where cut flowers become the beautiful bouquets you see at our growers’ market booths, The Farm Store and other store from Ashland all the way to Portland.
Our Ashland field is adjacent to Bear Creek, has a slightly cooler climate, and has nice river bed silty soil. This site is great for growing spring greens, cut flowers, and root vegetables.
Oregon Tilth Certified Organic
Fry Family Farm has been certified organic since 1996. All of our crops, flowers, and greenhouses are certified with Oregon Tilth. Oregon Tilth is an internationally recognized symbol of organic quality. We use absolutely no chemical herbicides, pesticides or fertilizers. In addition to our organic certification, we also use drip irrigation to reduce water evaporation, and have extensive composting and recycling programs.
