Farm Fresh Food: Just one more way Haggen is committed to supporting local communities across the Pacific Northwest.

What new organic produce will you discover? While the quality of produce from our organic farmers is unsurpassed, it’s the passion and determination of these small farms that inspires us everyday. We invite you to meet the farmers who grow your greens, the orchardists who nurture your fruit, the workers who plant each seed and the network of passionate individuals who bring your produce to market.

Tim Terpstra & Ray DeVries

Ralph’s Greenhouse

Mount Vernon, Washington

In 1980, Ralph de Vries retired from dairy farming and started a big garden free of herbicides and pesticides because, as he said, “We didn’t use them in the Old Country!” Ralph’s son Ray stepped up in 1988 to continue the family’s farming tradition providing Haggen with an assortment of fresh–picked greens and vegetables all season long. Ray has always kept his farming organic because according to his dad “organic farming used to just be called farming”.
