Meet Carl Chambers
Carl ChambersStahlbush Island Farms
Carl Chambers grew up on his family’s farm in Corvallis, in the midst of Oregon’s bountiful and beautiful Willamette Valley. As a second-generation farmer and the Annual Crops Farm Director, Carl pours his heart and energy into ensuring that the land will be fertile for generations to come. He works with the entire farm team to plant and harvest Marionberries, red raspberries, black raspberries, blueberries, strawberries and boysenberries.
Carl’s parents, Bill and Karla Chambers, founded the farm in 1985 with just two crops (sugar beets and wheat for seed), a piece of land and a passion for good food. Today, the 5,000-acre farm grows, processes and packages high-quality berries and vegetables. Carl’s team harvests each crop at the peak of ripeness and individually quick freezes the berries to distribute to hundreds of grocery stores around the country so you can enjoy Oregon’s berry harvest all year long.
Carl and his family love knowing that the flavor and quality of each berry shines through, and customers regularly comment on the taste, color and size. As a pioneer in sustainable agriculture, Stahlbush was the first farm in the nation to be certified sustainable in 1997, and Carl continues his family’s deep commitment to soil health, water conservation, wildlife habitat, biodiversity and innovation. When he is not overseeing the fields, Carl loves to referee sports and spends his winters skiing.
