Demetri's passion for farming started a long time ago and led him to a degree from OSU in Crop Production. After graduation, being land poor, he worked at Cenex for many years helping other farmers grow their crops. But he always dreamed of his own farm.
In 1992 an opportunity presented itself and Demetri took over a tulip farm on Peoria Road in Corvallis. Finally he could farm himself.
But in 2002 his lease on land was ending and it was time to move to his own place. Together with Viesia, he bought 28 acres in Philomath, OR. It is a beautiful spot, with 3/4 of a mile of Greasy Creak running through the middle of it. They named it GreenGable Garden and it is the home base for his Farm now. He also farms an additional 80 acres on NW Wolcott St in Corvallis. There is a Flower Stand where you can buy flowers almost year round.
The Farm's season starts with daffodils in February, tulips in March, irises in May, peonies in June, lilies in June and July, dahlias and sunflowers through the summer, back to tulips from greenhouses in fall and winter.... and many, many crops in between. Year round of flower beauty!
