the area are happy.
“We are paying 60-70 cents a pound for lentils grown
organically, especially to small and mid-size farmers. We’ve
been able to make that work for 30 years, and our mission
is to make it keep working. We want farmers in the U.S. and
around the world to the get the premiums they deserve.”
Not only does Timeless promote local farmers, but it
also promotes agricultural sustainability, Oien added, as
organic farming has many beneficial impacts on the land.
“We want the soil to be more healthy and we want
consumers to have more nutritious food,” he said. “That’s
why we started with organic farming in the first place.
Now you see a lot more farmers going into it for economic
reasons, but we had no way to anticipate that in the
seventies and early eighties.”
Oien said he feels tremendously fortunate Timeless
Seed has grown into what it is now.
“It’s impossible to anticipate, imagine or even dream
about what we’ve been able to accomplish here,” Oien said.
“It’s all been a big surprise.”
At the same time, nothing happens by accident.
“For Timeless to have this kind of success, it takes a lot
of dedication and hard work,” Oien said. “We saw the need
and we created the infrastructure to bring our product
from the farms to the market.”
