Another season for the Corvallis Indoor Winter Market will be underway this Saturday, January 14┬áin Gueber Hall at the Benton County Fairgrounds from 9:00-1:00. We will be in our usual place next to Wilt Farm Blueberries. See our “Current Inventory” page for our selections.

2012 is a special year for us as we mark the 20 year anniversary of the founding of Wood Family Farm. We plan to give you few stories about our adventure in farming over the course of the coming year. Here are a few bit of trivia about our farm. Did you know:

1. We were once in the oil business–the peppermint oil business to be exact?

2. At one time, we supply over 20 grocery stores and produce stands in Salem and Portland with melons?

3. We were one of the first farms to begin selling meat at farmers’ markets in the state of Oregon and the first meat vendors in Corvallis and Albany?

4. We began direct marketing in 1994?

5. We raised nearly a thousand broilers one summer?

6. We helped start two local farmers’ market?

Yes, we have had lots of adventures throughout the past 20 years. Hopefully, you will gain a glimpse of our story in the coming months. Stay tuned!
