Arctic Organics is a small scale family vegetable farm near Palmer, Alaska run by Sarah and River Bean since 1988. Our goal is to ensure clean, pesticide-, GMO-, and chemical-free produce and to practice sustainable farming techniques that are harmonious with nature. To that end, we grow 100% of the produce we sell, use as many local resources as possible, and have fostered a direct sustainable connection between farmers and consumers in our community.
We have a Community Supported Agriculture program for which we provide 125 families with weekly deliveries from mid-June through September, sold by seasonal subscription. We also sell produce, plants, apple trees, and cut flowers at our farm and at the Anchorage Farmers Market from early May to mid-October, and we grow custom specialty vegetables for local restaurants. Storage vegetables are available by special order while supplies last through the winter.
Alongside farming, we spearheaded the development of an Alaskan organic growers’ certification program, the Alaska Organic Association. We were also active in starting the Eagle River Farmers Market and the Anchorage Farmers Market.
