In the summer of 1980 two young farmers grew their first round of cut flower to sell to local markets. Nestled between the foothills of the Cascade Mountains and the Puget Sound they planted the seeds of what would grow to be a legacy. Through their ambitious drive and passion for plants they helped to cultivate a thriving business known for its unique plants, environmental conservation, and quirky farm teeming with animals like chickens, pigs, and even a lama. Although faces have changed over the years one thing has stayed a constant, Cascade Cut’s reputation for stunning high quality plants and commitment to the environment.
We now grow a wide variety of potted perennial and annual flowers, forced bulbs, culinary herbs, and microgreens. Employing environmental methods for the production of all of our crops; from beneficial insects, banker plants, EBB and flood irrigation, to compost tea applications, organic soil and the minimal use of low impact pesticides. These values match that of the community around us and have earned us numerous environmental awards and certifications over the years.
In the spring of 2018 Cascade Cut’s was sold to Bizu Getachew, who’s background as a self made entrepreneur, mother, and refugee is one to marvel at. Bizu is deeply passionate about improving human health through the joy of growing and gardening. She brings with her a vision to expand Cascade Cuts’ plant production and year round business. She is exploring the addition of microgreens for grocery stores and restaurants, cut flowers, and growing capacity for even more plant production.
We at Cascade Cut’s are all very excited for what the future holds for us but like any good farmer knows, roots are important too. We greatly appreciate all the hard work and dedication of our former owner has poured into Cascade Cuts! Thank you Paul Troutman without you none of this would be possible!
Cheers and thank you for your continued support as customers!
