Our-Family
We are a family farm! Owners Tod and Traci Parkinson have been married 24 years. Both grew up in small farming communities.  Together, they have a blended family that includes five grown daughters and a grown son who are all married with children of their own.

Many of their children live nearby, and many are involved in organic farming. Some of their children play roles in the family businesses, it’s Valliwide Organic Farms, and Valliwide Marketing. 

The Parkinson’s have nine grandchildren, aging from newborn to five years old. They spend a lot of time with their grandchildren on the farm. This year, the grandchildren planted little crops of their very own.

It’s a busy life!!! To read more about Valliwide Organic Farms, visit our About page.
