Daily Blessings Farm is located on Sloan Mountain approximately eight miles west of Grants Pass. Farmer Carrie’s family has owned the land since 1972 but the farm wasn’t established until 2018. She says the property was not commercially farmed until Daily Blessings Farm was established in 2018 It was, however, the homestead that provided daily blessings for my family since 1972; hence the farm name. This 4 acre parcel provides a diverse offering of wildlife shared with neighbors and it includes multiple eco-systems including pasture, orchard, mixed forest and pond fed by a seasonal creek. About 1.5 acres is utilized for row crop production of organic vegetables, cut flowers, strawberries and poultry for eggs.

In the interest of strengthening the local food system, I participate in several projects. During summer I offer “Kids Discover Days” however this program has been suspended until the pandemic ends and we can enjoy our time together with more tactile activities.

2022 brings a new direction as I develop the Josephine County Farm Collective: a farm share CSA program with multiple small farms contributing produce, meats, cheese and flowers.

As a sales priority, I ensure accessibility to my fresh produce through participation in all low income programs offered through the State of Oregon, Josephine County and local farmers markets to deliver fresh, organic produce to our low income populations.

As a host farm, Daily Blessings hopes to provide an easy place for interns to learn and a safe place to make mistakes. Daily Blessings Farm has one part-time, full season internship available for the 2022 growing season.
