Happiness Family Farm
Rosata, her husband, Prosper, and son, Japhety started growing vegetables on a small plot provided by Food Works, and in 2016 began Happiness Family Farm, providing produce to the local store at New Columbia as well as selling produce to farmers markets and restaurants in the area.
They grow foods familiar to fellow immigrants from Africa and provide a familiar and fresh alternative to foods found in the local groceries. They grow and sell specific African crops to connect with our African community here in the Northwest. They sell from Seattle to Salem to bring the flavor, vegetables, and culinary connection back to our African roots. Their work is essential to combat the oppressive systems of institutionalized racism and forced assimilation. They strive to unite and nourish our people with food that they are used to. They pride themselves on cultivating Oregon land with seeds and crops from Africa.
