How Cascadian Farm got its start
Travel through time to see how Cascadian Farm got its roots and evolved into a leading producer of organic food.
The story of Cascadian Farm begins with the story of its founder, Gene Kahn.
In 1972, 50 years ago, Gene was an idealistic 24-year-old graduate student from Chicago, who wanted to make a difference in the world.
Intrigued by the fragile balance between nature and humans and inspired by reading “Silent Spring” and “Diet for A Small Planet,” he wanted to grow crops in a way that would not harm the land.
