Forest Grove Farm

In 1965, a small family from Utah made its way to Oregon. Drawn to the Pacific Northwest by its temperate climate, fertile soil, and booming business, Leslie Gold, his wife, and their three children- Paul, Gene, and Floris “Sally” established a Plant Nursery in Forest Grove. While preparing the land for nursery stock, Paul Gold was killed in a tractor accident that left the whole family in mourning. After only 3 years in the industry, the family decided to move their nursery to a new property near Hillsboro. Hours upon hours of work was put into renovating the buildings, fixing up the barn, and acclimating the farmland to house nursery stock, but it paid off in the end. Nearly 60 years, three new expanded properties, and several children and grandchildren later, Gold Family Farms has grown into a successful company whose name is known countrywide. Gold Family Farms is a manifestation of what can be accomplished through hard work, a love for people, and a devotion to family.
