Valley Flora is nestled on the banks of Floras Creek near Langlois, Oregon. We're a diversified family farm producing over 100 varieties of vegetables, berries and fruit for local restaurants, grocery stores, foodbanks, our farmstand & u-pick, and a community-supported agriculture program. As a mother-and-two-daughter trio deeply committed to ecological farming practices, our passion is growing good food with an eye toward the artful. Our love of land, place, fertile loam, and the next generation inspires us to use cover crops, compost and crop rotations instead of synthetic fertilizers and sprays, and to do most of our work by hand - with the occasional help of a couple of tractors and a draft horse. We adhere to all organic practices, principles and regulations, but we are not third-party certified organic. Whether you're biting into a crimson strawberry, savoring a vine ripe tomato, or heaping your plate high with Abby's Greens, you'll know you're getting the freshest local produce a person can find in this neck of the woods. We love what we do - so much you can taste it.
We are currently signing up people on our waiting list. If you are interested in joining our CSA for the first time to get a Harvest Basket or any of the additional shares we offer (eggs, salad, tamales, winter garden kits), please add your name to our waiting list. Once you are on our waiting list, you will be in our system so that we can contact you directly.
NOTE: If you are currently a Harvest Basket member, you do not need to join our waiting list; you will automatically receive priority sign-up for 2014.
Thanks for supporting local food and family farmers!

Spring is upon us at Valley Flora!
If you're looking for produce, you'll find spring salad mix at the Langlois Market, the Port Orford Community Coop, Mother's Natural Grocery, and Coos Head Food Store, as well as a handful of local restaurants. Asparagus, artichokes, chard and kale will be showing up soon, and with a little luck, some early carrots, beets and strawberries! Our farmstand is tentatively set to open in late May or early June, but keep an eye on our website for our official start date. Tomatoes will be here before you know it!
We are pleased to offer our very own CRANKY BABY HOT SAUCE!
Handcrafted with homegrown hot peppers that are vine-ripened to a sassy red in our greenhouses. This hot sauce strikes the perfect balance between hot, sweet and tangy.
(Even if you don't like spicy stuff, it's worth 5 bucks for the label alone. That's our very own Pippin in the highchair, with a little help from PhotoShop...)
Approved for farm-direct sale by the Oregon Department of Agriculture.
