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 are Ridgefield's and Clark County's first and premier farm-to-restaurant farm-to-fork grower and partner for over 20 years. See our Restaurant/Commercial Produce Availability Page for further info.
 
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.

Check out the 2017 List!  
 
This season we have FOUR NEW TOMATOES TO OFFER: the CHEF'S CHOICE GREEN, ORANGE AND PINK  and the INDIGO KUMQUAT, each a notable addition and good performer. The CHEF'S CHOICES are modern improvements of classic green, orange and pink heirlooms but superb sugar and acid flavor and better yield. The INDIGO KUMQUAT is a heavy yielding cherry with very sweet flavor and a surprising kick of acidity. A great companion to the venerable Sungold Cherry.

Here's just a sample of what we've got now: 7 kinds of Raspberry;  Blackberry;  Loganberry;  Olalie berry, 10 kinds of  Blueberry;  Red Black and White Currant; Jostaberry;  Elderberry;  Gojiberry; Gooseberry; Haskap Berry;  Huckleberry;  Ligonberry;  Marionberry; Golden Raspberry; Tayberry; Campbell grape; Candida seedless grape; Concorde grape;  Flame seedless grape; Glenora seedless grape;  Golden Muscat grape; Lakemont Seedless grape; Niagara seedless; Pinot Gris; Pinot Noir; Remaily grape; Steuben grape; Suffolk red seedless.

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!
