Springtail Farm, owned and operated by John Felsner and Heather Miles, is a direct market producer and seller of seasonal, northwest-adapted and mostly open pollinated herbs and vegetables. John and Heather grow over 100 varieties of 30 different crops, practicing sustainable and chemical-free growing methods with a focus on onions, potatoes, tomatoes, winter squash and seven different root vegetables. In 2015, their focus will be on winter storage vegetables and hearty greens and alliums (flowering bulb plants such as onion, garlic, chives, and leeks).
Springtail Farm's mission is to primarily serve their neighbors in the Arleta and Lents neighborhoods of Portland Oregon, but they also wish to welcome any supporters in outer southeast Portland, such as the Woodstock and Powellhurst-Gilbert neighborhoods. They can also be found at the Eastmoreland and Lents International Farmers Markets in 2015, and their hearty greens, tomatoes and squash can be enjoyed at Arleta Library Café and Artigiano Italian Eatery (May - October).
