About

Purple Sage Farms - Certified Organic Family Farm since 1989

Our mission at Purple Sage Farms is to connect our community to the healthiest, freshest, and most flavorful food.

For nearly 30 years, Purple Sage Farms has specialized in growing a wide range of organic herbs, greens and vegetables. Today, that has expanded to over 250 varieties of crops ranging from the familiar and traditional to the obscure and exotic, whether they are culinary, medicinal or both. Purple Sage Farms greens and salad mixes change with the seasons and include a wide variety of colors, flavors, and shapes. Among all of the crops, nutrients are high and flavors are prominent. Our artisan products are crafted to perfection at the on-farm commercial kitchen. Purple Sage Farms herbs, spices, greens and vegetables are thoughtfully grown and proudly certified organic on our family farm in Middleton, Idaho.

Organic practices guide how we care for our crops, from diverse crop rotation practices to how we harvest the freshest herbs and greens. Purple Sage Farms is an ecosystem and each part plays a role.

Our farming practices start with promoting diversity and abundance of microbes in the soil. We raise livestock for meat and the animal manure is composted to make fertilizer for plants. We build soil structure and microbe communities by tilling the soil as little as possible. Plant beds get a rest with restorative cover crops.

Purple Sage Farms is an award winning family farm, recognized for persistent and long-term advocacy for Idaho’s locally and organically grown food system.
