Eric and Laura Pond own and operate 2 Pony Produce Co, one of our satellite farms. They have 10 acres east of Lebanon, OR along the south Santiam river, and farm 2.5 acres of it. They are a family of four, two dogs, 4 cats and a horse. They grow a wide range of vegetables including a small patch of asparagus, berries including blueberries, raspberry, blackberries, strawberries, table grapes, herbs and flowers for the food bank in our area and a couple of regular CSA members. They farm organically but are not certified yet. They use a 100’ permanent bed system, drip irrigation, overhead irrigation and try to minimally till, we have a BCS walk-behind tractor with a full range of attachments and a small 35 hp tractor. They utilize cover crop and use silage tarps to help manage weeds and build soils. 4 cold tunnels are used for season extension.

They are joining RFC as a new host farmer in 2022, and are looking for someone with some experience who wants to learn more, is excited to be outside and is interested in farming as a career/lifestyle. Read more about 2 Pony Produce here:
