Bill and Karla Chambers started with 2 crops, 300 acres and a dream. They wanted to grow and freeze delicious fruits, vegetables, grains and legumes. They wanted to grow the kind of flavourful, healthy produce that they could feel good about serving at the dinner table to their own family. This meant their produce needed to be picked and frozen at the peak of ripeness. Today, Stahlbush cultivates more than 5,000 acres in Oregon, but the goal remains the same: grow and freeze delicious produce. Of course, they’re concerned about more than just food. They’re also concerned about their social responsibility and employee well-being. That’s why they’ve put programs in place that will ensure their employees are happy and fulfilled. It’s also why they constantly work to improve their local community. In fact, every year, they donate 1 million servings to local food banks.
