River City Farm is a 3/4 acre vegetable farm in Lewiston, Idaho. We grow a wide array of biologically produced vegetables, herbs, and flowers. Our produce is available at local farmers’ markets, through our CSA Program, at local restaurants, and at our weekly farm stand.
Our mission is to be a sustainable, local food source for LC Valley and surrounding communities. We want to connect consumers with their food and their farmers, so we encourage community members to come to the farm and get involved.
Keegan Athey is the founder and full-time farmer of River City Farm. She started the farm in 2014 after several years of small-scale vegetable production experience and earning her BS in Soil and Crop Science and Organic Agriculture from Colorado State University. Keegan also works for Backyard Harvest, a non-profit organization who works to improve local food access to low income residents of the Palouse and LC Valley. She is psyched to share her passion for local food with her community.
Mike Kittel still needs to write his bio…but we love and appreciate him too much to leave him out!
Dory Athey spends much of the year pursuing her master’s degree in publishing, eating good food with good people in Portland and studying sustainability and social justice through the lenses of text and publication. She spends the summers working for River City Farm, soaking up the dirt and Idaho sun that make everything else worth it and, of course, eating good food with the best people.
