Northwest Organic Farms

Learn about the farm behind Zupan's beautiful heirloom tomatoes.

Owned by husband and wife team Greg & Joyce and located in Ridgefield, Washington, Northwest Organic Farms provides Zupan’s Markets with beautiful heirloom tomatoes during summer’s tomato season. 

Growing up in Mexico Greg had been farming since he was 6. When he met Joyce in 1998, together they began to dream of the possibilities for her property she owned in Ridgefield. The two visited the North Plains Garlic Festival, and as they were admiring the Elephant Garlic, they decided to try growing some of their own. After the success of growing garlic and knowing they wanted to plant more, heirloom tomatoes were the next step. Today Northwest Organic Farms is a fully operable 100% organic CSA farm that plants everything from Kale, Green Beans, Onions, Radishes & more! 

Countless hours of hard work and dedication go into each fruit and vegetable grown. All the planting, picking, and growing is done manually and the soil is fed with compost because Greg & Joyce believe produce should not be grown any other way.  Throughout the years Greg has perfected his grafting process in order to produce the best tomatoes possible.  

With over 20 varieties of heirloom tomatoes, ranging from yellow & green striped Green Zebras to dark Cherokee Purples. If you’re looking for advice from an expert, Greg’s favorite varieties are Marvel Stripe and Chocolate Cherokee. Get your NW Organic Farms heirloom tomatoes before the season ends! When you bite into one of these tomatoes, you will be able to taste the difference!
