The Harris Family
Here's the whole gang! Right now, there are nine Harris kiddos ranging in age from under one year to eight years old. It's a busy bunch! Jim and Rich are full time in charge of the day-to-day farm operations with Jim heading up the hay management, Rich leading the pig side, and the two co-managing the cattle. Preston has brought multiple land-management projects to the farm that focus on land sustainability, water management, and balancing natural habitats with agriculture needs. He is now working full time for the Scott River Trust and the local Resource Conservation District. Tom is an agriculture consultant, living in Corvallis, OR and coming down to help on the farm in the busy season.
