Swanson Farms was started in 1991 in Forest Grove, Oregon for a unique reason; the Swanson family had to farm for tax deferral purposes. The Swanson family includes Greg, wife Kelly and their children Jarek and Hannah. They farm 40 acres of which blueberries represent 6 acres.
Kelly wanted to let us know that her and Gregg had know idea about farming when they started, in fact she had never been on a tractor until the day the blueberry plants showed up. She goes on to say, “…my advice would be to invest in real estate or learn the stock market. All-in-all though I have no regrets!”
