About Us / Dancing Roots Farm History: Our farm is on 10 beautiful acres above the Sandy River, adjacent to Dabney State Park. We are 18 miles east of Portland, south of I-84. To the locals, this area is known as Springdale. In addition to our fields, we have a few acres of woods, tons of blackberries, and lots of refuge for songbirds and wildlife.We bought the farm in the fall of 2002 and spent most of 2003 fixing up the old farmhouse. The fields sat fallow for over 30 years, and now our plans call for creating an ecologically sound and productive working farm. Our vision includes orchards, year round produce, educational programs, a composting facility, and farm animals such as pigs, chickens, goats, ducks, and bees!We use only ecologically sound practices, such as crop rotations, natural amendments, cover crops, drip irrigation, and providing habitat for beneficials; we use no synthetic fertilizers or pesticides.
