Welcome to the Millennium Farms website.

Our motto is: "Where flavor comes first."
 
Here you can find vegetables, herbs and fruits like you remember from your family's garden years ago. We've been growing here in the Northwest for over 20 years, and know which varieties of vegetables, herbs, greens and fruit do best year-in and year-out in the Greater Vancouver/Portland area. Instead of too many varieties to chose from, we have filtered our lists so you benefit from our experience on which variety for each type of plant to grow! Even so, we have over 100 varieties of tomatoes and peppers alone, among our over 500 varieties of plants, and each are best in this area for a particular use.
 
 
 
Winter/Spring 2017 YOU-CHOOSE CSAs
 
Besides being a Plant Nursery in the Spring, Millennium Farms is also a FARM YEAR-ROUND, and Southwest Washington's FIRST AND PREMIER FARM-TO-TABLE SOURCE. We grow healthy food, both for restaurants, companies and institutions, offered through our 6 day-a-week delivery program, and for individuals through our novel YOU CHOOSE CSA PROGRAM which is available for subscription. We have a few more openings for the WINTER/SPRING 2017 CSA, so SEE THE 2017 CSA PAGE and email us for more info and/or the sign-up form.

Nursery News
 
The Ultra-hot Peppers are available at the Farm. 6 month, 1 year and some 2 year old plants are available. PEPPERS FOR 2016 include 9 OF THE WORLD'S 10 HOTTEST PEPPERS, and some of them in 1, 2 and even 3 gallon sizes! Check out the 2016 List!  
 
This season we have THREE NEW TOMATOES TO OFFER: the Genuwine, the Pineapple Pig and the Indigo Cherry Drop, each a notable addition and good performer. The Genuwine is a modern cross of the venerable Costoluto Genovese and the Red Brandywine, making a superb red sauce and slicing tomato. The Pineapple Pig is a modern cross of the #1 tasting Pineapple tomato and another large beefsteak, the Great White, to make a huge 3lb+ and possibly even better tasting beefsteak tomato. The third tomato is the Indigo Cherry Drop - similar to the recent new Indigo tomato from OSU, but in a cherry tomato style, and from our tests, better producing and tasting.

The back to back winner of the West Coast's largest tomato taste contest. In 2004 AND 2005 the classic heirloom tomato Pineapple won Territorial Seeds' Tomato Tasteoff, which is a double-blind taste where the judges cannot see nor ask questions about the tomatos they sample. It's strictly won on flavor and Pineapple won it two years running; a feat unlikely ever to happen again. Yes they really are that big, and have that ohmigosh flavor...Old German is thought to be a related heirloom tomato, as it is a red base with yellow and orange versus the yellow base with red and orange of the Pineapple...both stellar tomatoes!

Some folks don't believe how much our plants grow. Below are some photos from Tom Lipman in Hillsdale which will show you how fast (and how big) they grow... Thanks a lot Tom! And take a look at the last photo...all of that in JUST ONE DAY'S harvest!
