Today, General Mills announced it is donating the Cascadian Farm Home Farm in Skagit Valley, Washington to new owners, Rodale Institute.
The Home Farm is a working organic farm started in 1972 by Cascadian Farm founder, Gene Kahn, who believed that organic agriculture could make a positive impact on the health of the planet. While the Cascadian Farm brand outgrew the Home Farm, it has remained open to visitors over the years.
“General Mills is proud to donate the Home Farm to Rodale Institute.” said Jason Resch, Business Unit Director, Natural and Organic at General Mills. “As a global leader in regenerative organic agriculture, we believe Rodale Institute is best served as land stewards to continue its legacy.”
