For more than 100 years and through five generations, Hilltop Produce Farms has been providing fresh produce to the community of Troutdale, Oregon. Specializing in vegetables like broccoli, cabbage and root crops, Hilltop Produce is a healthy eater’s paradise.
Yet the pandemic has certainly had other ideas about both individual health and economic health. “With closures and restrictions of restaurants and schools and other business served by farms, our sales have been noticeably reduced,” says owner Kurt and Sharon Kerslake. “We’ve also incurred more costs as we’ve worked hard to keep our employees and customers safe with increased disinfection efforts.”
But feeding people is what the Kerslake’s do and that is a big reason, despite the hardships, that they are partnering with Columbia Bank and the Pass It On Project. That is why Hilltop Produce Farms is providing fresh produce to the Oregon Food Bank, and Columbia Bank is paying the bill. “We are passing it on to The Oregon Food Bank because they can take our produce and reach many more people,” they say. “We believe this collaboration with Columbia Bank will help so many people impacted by COVID.”
