Santos Family Farm
Santos Family Farm started in 2014, after Joe Santos retired from a 30-year tech career in Silicon Valley. Santos and his wife wanted to pursue something meaningful, that is as much of a lifestyle as it is a business. Since they had always enjoyed growing things, starting a farm only seemed natural.
Santos Family Farm works hard to provide their customers with the highest-quality produce. As a certified organic farm, they comply with strict regulations and undergo an inspection every year to ensure that their products are great for both the consumer and the local environment. In addition, all of their produce is harvested the day before or the day of the market, so when you visit their booth, you know you are getting the freshest food possible.
Santos Family Farm and the Hillsboro Farmers’ Market community have one big thing in common: our dedication to high-quality, local products. This alignment of values is what keeps customers coming to Santos Family Farm and the farm coming to the market—season after season.
Santos Family Farm grows anywhere from 80-100 different kinds of fruits and vegetables each season, and you can expect to find a sample of their harvest every time you visit them at the Sunday market. For non-produce options, they also have free-range eggs and broiler chickens. Right now they have herbs, peas, beets, carrots, and radishes, and soon they’ll be offering tomatoes and zucchini. Come fall, they’ll also be selling winter squash. Their top-notch customer service and personal approach means they are always willing to answer questions about the farm and the products they sell. If you want to know the difference between summer squash and winter squash, give them an ask!
For those interested in receiving produce from Santos Family Farm on a regular basis, you can sign up for one of their CSA plans on their webpage. They would also like people to know that they are very close to finishing an on-location storefront for the farm, so soon you’ll be able to visit the farm and buy produce in-person, in case you missed them at the market.
