Stoneboat Farm is a sustainable, horse powered farm.

 

Brothers Aaron and Jesse Nichols work with their horse team, Gale and Esther, to produce transitional vegetables outside Portland Oregon.

Our model of farming is unique and we invite you to learn more about our projects as we

  • Transition a retired nursery to an organic farm

  • Move to on-farm sources of fertility and labor by using Belgian draft horses to replace tractor tasks

  • Guard our vegetables and turkeys from predation with Matsu, a Great Pyrenees

  • Partner with Adelante Mujeres, a Forest Grove nonprofit, to help educate immigrant farmers to grow organically and sell their produce locally
