Commitment To Our Community
One of the hallmarks of sustainable farming is involvement and commitment to the local community. We’re very proud to support and participate in a variety of organizations and activities.
There are many reasons we love living and farming in the Klamath Basin. With 300 days of sunshine, abundant wildlife and beautiful country wherever you look, it’s easy to see why we call this place home. However, there’s another important component that often gets overlooked because of all the natural beauty – the people who live here.
Farming communities are very tight-knit, and the Klamath Basin is no different. Folks here try to help with their time and money whenever they can. Gold Dust and Walker Brothers try to embody this generous spirit through the charities, events and community organizations we support and participate in.
The most visible ways you can witness our involvement range from the stretch of highway we clean in Oregon’s Adopt-A-Highway program to our annual float in the Klamath Basin Potato Festival. However, we don’t participate in these activities to raise our public profile; we do them because we enjoy being a part of our community. Which organizations and programs do we support?

- The Tulelake Butte Valley Fair
