Getting Tilth-y: Salmon-Safe at Roy Farms

November 21, 2016

Part one of a three-part Getting Tilth-y episode features Mike Roy of Roy Farms in Yakima, WA, as he discusses the importance and benefits of Salmon-Safe and organic certifications for their family-owned hop farm. Mike talks about sustainability being a challenge that is worth taking on as well as how being a certified farm has helped them make their own agricultural systems more efficient both for nature and for business.

Salmon-Safe Organic is a joint venture between Oregon Tilth and Salmon-Safe, a nonprofit organization working to restore watersheds for salmon to spawn and thrive. Oregon Tilth provides fast-track Salmon-Safe certification to organic farmers and handlers that further protect biodiversity and aquatic habitat while helping to redefine the practice of ecologically sustainable agriculture.
