About Us

Working Theory Farm is a certified organic diversified farm focused on building confidence and cultivating lasting life skills for at-risk youth by working the land, providing peer mentorship, and improving community access to fresh, healthy food.


Situated on 24 acres just inside of Portland’s Urban Growth Boundary, Working Theory was established in 2011 and has earned a strong reputation among Portland’s chefs and grocery buyers for producing the highest quality fruit and vegetables. The farm also raises hogs, lambs and chickens, all entirely on pasture, which we market directly to individual consumers in the community. 


The 2019 season marks a significant change in Working Theory’s mission, focusing on the opportunity to share in the farm’s labor and the fruit thereof. We are partnering with a number of community organizations, including a local juvenile shelter, as well as other local businesses. Food from the farm will support the shelter’s culinary skills program and the efforts of the Oregon Food Bank, and the remainder will be sold commercially in order to generate revenue in service of the overall mission.
