Bill and Karla Chambers started with 2 crops, about 300 acres and a dream in 1985. Today, Stahlbush cultivates 5,000 acres in Oregon and offers the freshest individually quick frozen fruits, vegetables, grains & legumes available.
As the farmers and the processors, Stahlbush Island Farms have the ability to leave the products in the field or on the vine until perfectly ripe. Fruits and vegetables are frozen immediately after harvest, sealing in the perfect flavor.
The Chambers' are examples of stewards of the land. They have built their operation on five core principles that look to sustainability as their ongoing goal:
Riced Cauliflower is finely diced pieces of our deliciously ripe cauliflower. Turn our riced cauliflower into low-carb rice, pizza crust, hummus, pancakes, burrito bowls and more. You can thicken soup and replace cheese. Scramble it with eggs, create a burger patty or add it to a cake – seriously! Whether you are paleo, gluten-free, vegan or simply a creative chef, cauliflower is an easy way to sneak another serving of vegetables into your daily routine.
Stahlbush Crazy Corn has a sweet flavor and complex texture. It’s perfect as a side dishes or in sautés. A colorful addition to any meal, the bright yellow, purple and white blend of non-GMO verified corn saves precious time in the kitchen. Our kernels are already cut off the cob, washed and ready to use.
Our colorful sweet potato blend is a mixture of white, purple and orange diced sweet potatoes. Unlike other purple hued vegetables, their vibrant hue does not diminish when cooked nor does the color bleed. This blend is delicious in breakfast hashes, roasts and casseroles.
Stahlbush Cool Cauliflower is a hearty blend of white, green, orange and purple cauliflower. The non-GMO verified blend adds color and richness to any meal. The blend has the same light flavor typical of traditional cauliflower, which makes it a favorite substitute for heavy starches like potatoes, rice and even flour.
