Peter Liebes, longtime local organic farmer, passed away Tuesday, June 14, 2011, at home at 10:30 p.m. Peter was one of the founders of the Grants Pass Growers' Market, promoting organic agriculture and stewarding Windy River Farm with his wife, Judy Weiner, since 1980. He was a devoted, loving father to his two daughters, Amber and Autumn. He enjoyed a close, loving relationship with his grandson, Keegan, and he shared a boundless joy with all animals. Peter was the son of Richard and Brunhilde Liebes and is survived by his brother, Fred Liebes.


Windy River Farm was the actualization of Peter's childhood dream to become a farmer. He diligently studied and applied organic methods and processes, and mentored numerous people along the way. The vision of Peter, grinning, riding his bicycle over the bumpy paths to check on the crops and the irrigation will remain with many of us for a long time.


We will miss you, Peter.
