Organic Farmer, Chef & Single Dad
Jeff Miller has owned and operated Willie Green’s for close to 25 years. Back in the mid-90’s when the farm “went dormant” in November, Jeff would grab his chef’s knives and cook with us at Lisa Dupar Catering during the busy holiday season. He is a graduate of the CIA and chose organic farming over the hot kitchen. He has taken a quarter acre plot of land he bought in the 80’s and has grown it (literally) to a fifty-five acre farm which produces fifty to sixty varieties of vegetables and berries available at farmers markets throughout the Seattle area. He is a supplier of organics to our local Whole Foods for the retail customer and Charlie’s Produce for chefs and restaurateurs. He has also added an exquisite outdoor event venue, The Fields at Willie Green’s, amongst the greens, basalt fountain, fire pit and rows of raspberries.
Our families have been friends for over a decade and through the turns of life he has become a single Dad of two; Noah, 15 and Lexie, 8; Plus, two step-children, Dominic & Danielle with whom he has remained very close….
