Quinn: an artist who picked up farming.
Theus: a farmer who picked up an artist.
These two Farm Punks comprise the salad-specific farm that is Farm Punk Salads. Quinn and Theus came into farming after a life on the road together. Quinn had recently parted ways from art school, looking for a new medium that was as functional as it was beautiful, and Theus came from the outdoor trad rock climbing community, and was wanting a way to give back to his community. After returning to Portland after their many travels, they found a deeper sense of home within the farming community. While working on local farms like Skyline Farm, Cully Neighborhood Farm, and Full Plate Farm, they hatched the idea of Farm Punk Salads.
Their mission? To get people stoked on salad by providing mouth watering salad greens and bomb-diggity salad dressings.
Growing on a 1/4 acre at hand scale with no-till practices, Farm Punk Salads grows salad greens, head lettuce, and culinary herbs. They offer a home-delivered salad CSA for residents of East Portland, and you can also find them at farmers markets. Their tahini-based salad dressings are sold at New Season and other grocery stores in Portland. Check out www.farmpunksalads.com to learn more about Farm Punk Salads and where you can find them.
