Casad Family Farms
Certified Organic, biodiverse family farm growing wholesale potatoes, onions, winter squash, hays, grains and raising animals for direct-to-consumer meat shares and meat CSAs. In addition to the crops grown for sale, large portions of the farm are dedicated to growing bee forage and diverse cover crops as a part of their holistic land management practices. No imported fertilizers are used, rather a biodynamic-influenced approach is used to create a closed loop farm system. Previously operating as Juniper Jungle Farm for many years, Chris Casad and Cate Havstad-Casad moved their farm to Madras in 2017 to expand their land management to grow more food for Central Oregon. Farmer Chris has been growing food for his Central Oregon community for over 10 years.
