Troutman Farms is a small private farm in Oregon. As a land owner, the farm leases space to various growers. The farm has a natural spring-fed pond on it and invests in top-of-the-line greenhouses and other infrastructure to help tenants produce the best harvest. The farm is the platinum standard within its industry. Products cultivated here are the finest in organically grown, sustainably harvested crops. Today, Troutman Farms is just that -- a farm. In the future, it may expand into its own food and other consumer products...farther down, it may expand to have bricks-and-mortar retail locations throughout Oregon, but primarily in Portland. If we do this, the food products and retail operations would be branded separately from Troutman Farms...but likely would include the Troutman Farms brand in their imaging ("a product of Troutman Farms")
I'd like to explore the following colors:
Let designers make suggestions:
We are open to both traditional and modern design.
We want a very classy, upscale, clean look to the logo. NOT too busy. NOT playful and silly.
We are open to various visual ideas. A few that we would like to explore include:
1. Not sure if we want a fish icon as part of the logo or just farm/organic visuals or none of the above.
2. Options with and without "Clackamas County" included in the logo to signify the location (similar to "Napa Valley" for California wine)
3. Options with and without the words "Organic - Sustainable - Local" included in the logo.
