About Dome Grown Produce

It all started way back when I was just a little girl, and I grew up on a farm in Upstate New York. Some of my first childhood memories are of the garden and helping my dad in it. Well, I don’t know how much help I really was… I distinctly remember helping plant corn and beans, because the seeds were large and easy to handle. I also helped eat a lot of vegetables right off the plants. My mom would always find me out in the garden with a mouthful of cherry tomatoes. I think that growing up on the farm instilled in me the value of fresh, safe food.

Eager to Learn More

My path in life didn’t lead me straight to the farm. I chose to take the long way around... In high school, I had a great science teacher who kept me interested in botany, horticulture, and ecology. Then in college I moved on to earn a Natural Resource Conservation Degree. There I learned about soil science, botany, hydrology, ornithology, and the value of healthy ecosystems. I realized that nature really does best when it’s not polluted with chemical pesticides, fertilizers, and feed lot runoff. I learned that there needs to be a balance in production and protection.

 

Our Beautiful Farm in Redmond, OR

After living in Colorado for six years, then moving to Oregon almost 10 years ago, and a few odd jobs later, I have finally landed at my farm. My excitement for growing and eating fresh vegetables was renewed after moving to an area that has a more temperate climate than the mountains of Colorado.Since moving here I have been growing flowers, vegetables, and herbs organically.The first garden was a mere 4’x8’ raised bed and now I get to talk in acres. I learned a lot about the area by working at a garden center for six years.
