Earth Conscious Organics (Brewster, Washington)
www.myecofarmer.com/

Earth Conscious Organics sells the apples from Paul Madden's orchard, but they also sell apples, pears, cherries and summer stone fruits from other neighboring small farms. New Roots has been buying apples from ECO since 1999.

Paul Madden Orchards has been in Paul's family for 99 years - 4 generations of family.His 40 acre farm is on the banks of the upper Columbia River innorth central Washington near the town of Brewster. Paul organically grows eight varieties of apples and two varieties of cherries in his orchard.

The orchard has been organic since 1990 and before that, Paul's father practiced both IPM (Integrated Pest Management) and Low Impact pesticide use (minimal, low concentration spray).

Around the turn of the century Paul's great grandfather, H.L.Martin was offered his own orchard by the Everett Orchard Company if he would travel across the treacherous North Cascade Mountains and plant ten different orchards in the Methow valley. The orchards were a success and the Martins raised their family in Winthrop Washington. Their son-in-law George Madden helped in the orchards but soon expanded his enterprise to include a blacksmith shop.


George's son Blaine (Paul's dad) became a farmer and also had his own orchard in Winthrop. Paul's great grandfather Newt Williams ran the stagecoach and mail route up and down the Methow valley. Newt's daughter Gertrude, married Lee Cooper and they planted orchards near Brewster Washington where Paul continues the farming tradition. Many people ask Paul why he was interested in developing an organic orchard.

His simple response, 'To keep myself and my family safe from dangerous concentrations of chemical pesticides and fertilizers'. After a few years, I came to love and passionately embrace this style of farming. Soon, other small family farmers who embraced the ECO philosophy joined the venture.

What do they grow? Apples, Cherries, Pears, and more!

Fewel Farms (Yakima, Washington)

What started out as a small, local sideline business in 1980 for Pat Fewel and his son Scott has turned into one of the largest produce shippers in the United States. For the past 20 years the Fewels have specialized in Fall crops, including pumpkins, gourds, mini pumpkins and Indian corn. More recently they have begun growing chili peppers, personal size watermelons and green, red and yellow bell peppers.

The success of Washington State's own Fewel Farms has been reinforced many-fold as they have supplied nearly every major customer throughout the U.S. and Canada. Their success has helped bring recognition to our wonderful Yakima Valley, where grows some of the finest produce found anywhere in the world.

2007 is an exciting time at Fewel Farms because Scott's son Jarod has returned to the farm and will represent the third generation at the farm level! The timing is great because Pat has now retired. The family feels that they are well-positioned to continue to grow as their customer base grows and, equally important, they see themselves as ready to take part in the returning support of the national companies that are trending toward more local and regional farms for their produce procurement needs! As in 'close to home'!
