Welcome to Laughing Worms Farm! We are a small, 1 acre farm located in Sherwood, Oregon growing year- round organic vegetables and fruits since 2012. Our single acre is provided by Jane and Gary Bozeman on their land which is adjacent to the Tualatin River National Wildlife Refuge. Our crop production started out with a focus on cultivating a diverse variety of vegetables and herbs, and within 1-3 years we hope to include berries, tree fruits, and other perennials.
At Laughing Worms Farm, we believe that growing the best produce requires nurturing your soil, and healthy soil is full of wriggling, exuberant, laughing worms! Using completely organic practices, no chemicals and very little machinery or fossil fuel inputs, we strive to provide healthy produce that nurtures our bodies as well as our environment. We use crop rotation, planning, cover crops, sheet mulching, and companion planting principles to keep pests and diseases at bay. We are also in the process of installing a new solar powered water pump to lower our use of fossil fuels even more.
We are not only dedicated to creating an efficient, environmentally sound agricultural system, but to cultivating relationships with our customers. We envision a food system that operates on a hyper-local scale, where we get to know each of our customers and are able to cater to their specific produce needs. Through the necessary struggles of learning to be a small business, we have come to value our budding enterprise as not only a career, but as a way of life.
