Harry MacCormack started farming at Sunbow Farm in 1972. He has always grown a wide variety of vegetables, fruits, beans and grains. To market his produce he co-founded the Corvallis Saturday Market and the Peoples Wednesday Market in Portland. For two decades he marketed in Newport and sat on that market's board. Since 2005 Harry and Cheri were farming full time all year round to provide produce for Corvallis by sending the Certified Organic produce list out on a weekly email list and 5 day a week deliveries.
As of 2015 Harry and Cheri transferred the produce business to Nate Johnson and Yadira Ruiz. We have instituted the legal documents so that Nate and Yadira can continue the Sunbow Farming Tradition for their lifetime as Sunbow Produce.
