 Willie Greens Organic Farm: Monroe, Washington

 

Owner & Organic Specialist Jeff Miller and his "Future Farmers of America" Noah and Alexandra Miller.

Willie Green's Organic Farm is a certified organic farm located in the fertile flood plain of the Tualco Valley, south of Monroe. The farm is situated in a unique micro-climate of misty cool mornings and sunny warm summer days. That, in combination with mineral rich river bottom land help our vegetables and berries thrive with outstanding flavor.

For almost 20 years, our customers have consistently told us that our produce is the best they have tasted. Working as a chef in California, Jeff Miller became enamored with the locally grown gourmet greens. In the mid 1980s, he decided to channel his passion for delicious food into farming. He packed up his backpack with seeds, climbed on his motorcycle and came to Washington. The farm started as a bit of leased land in Woodinville and now is a bustling family farm in Monroe, spread over three fields and totaling almost 40 acres.

Small enough to give attention to the details, we are large enough to provide a great value to our CSA customers as well as our Farmers' Markets and wholesale customers. We have built a strong business foundation by growing the highest quality, best tasting produce possible and providing professional, courteous and friendly service.
