Our Farm

Located on a lil' 1 acre urban homestead in NE Portland, Lil' Starts uses permaculture and biodynamic principles to grow clean, healthy produce and robust, productive plant starts for local farmers markers, restaurants and their two CSA programs.

Owners Luke & Lillian Klimaszewski wholeheartedly believe in sustainable and natural growing methods. That's why they only use non-GMO seed stock and their plants and produce are free of pesticides and synthetic fertilizers. Lil' Starts makes their own soil mix and feeds their plants compost, locally sourced manures and plant and fish teas they ferment on their farm. These earth honoring practices, along with a good dose of community and love, ensure the best conditions for healthy, thriving plants.
