The Summer 2011 issue of Edible Portland presents a wonderful story about The Small Farmers’ Project, discussing the long road the cooperative of seven families have taken to be an established success. The article also maintains the importance of the farm’s headlining crop: black cap raspberries. With three times the antioxidants of blueberries, the farmers continue to work hard to bring the heirloom berry to the attention of buyers across Oregon and beyond.
With plans to diversify offerings into fruit jam and frozen puree, the cooperative is thinking about the long-term success of their business and how to get such a valued crop to more customers.
