About Us / OtterBee's Farm & Fungi History: OtterBee's Farm & Fungi, owned and operated by Rich & Kathleen Dickson, allows us to combine our two main passions in life - farming in the Spring and Summer, and harvesting wild mushrooms in the Fall and Winter! Fortunately, we live in Brookings-Harbor, Oregon - known locally as the "banana belt" of coastal Oregon - and the temperate climate here in our region makes both farming and wild-harvesting possible. We rarely have snow in the winter, we rarely get above 70 degrees in the summer, and we get an average of 80 inches of rain (mostly in the winter), so everything grows well here - plants and mushrooms! Our USDA listing began in 2005 as Oregon Wild Mushrooms, when we offered our wild-harvested mushrooms to USDA customers. In2007, we were able to lease a piece of property in Brookings-Harbor, Oregon, just the right size to begin a small farm, and OtterBee's Farm & Fungi was born. Then, in 2008, we started our first CSA program. The creation of our farm and the success of our CSA program, coupled with the wild mushroom harvesting that we continue to do each Fall-Winter season, have enabled us to create a business that is self-sustaining year round.We feel lucky to be able to offer such a wonderful variety of locally-grown fresh fruits and vegetables and locally-harvested wild mushrooms. We believe we have been entrusted with the land we live on now, and vow to live as simply as possible. And we look forward to a life of farming and harvesting for many years to come...
