Threemile Celebrates Earth Day
At Threemile, we treat every day like it is Earth Day.

Through an agreement between Threemile, The Nature Conservancy, Portland General Electric, the Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife and the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, 23,000 acres were set aside to establish the Boardman Conservation Area (BCA), protecting one of the last undisturbed expanses of native shrub-steppe terrain in the Columbia River Basin.
At the core of our operations at Threemile Canyon Farms is our closed-loop system, whereby we constructively use everything that’s created in a sustainable cycle of productivity that begins and ends with the cows.
An Oregon dairy was among the winners of the 2020 U.S. Dairy Sustainability Awards announced Wednesday by the Innovation Center for U.S. Dairy. Threemile Canyon Farms was one of three dairies nationwide – and the only one on the West Coast – to receive the award for outstanding dairy sustainability.
