Welcome to the Millennium Farms website.
Here you can find vegetables, herbs and fruits like you remember from your family's garden
years ago. Our motto is: "Where flavor comes first." 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 streamlined 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, but each are best in this area for a particular

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
