Everything we grow is produced using organic methods that work in conjunction with the soil and ecosystem of the farm.  We believe in using what we can produce on our own.  It is the only way we can be 100% certain that what we produce is grown with two things in mind: preserving flavor and promoting health.  Growing fruits and vegetables is the conduit we use to serve our local community.  Every step forward we take as farmers is to grow better not bigger and we invite you to grow with us.

We are able to avoid the use of chemical pesticides and herbicides by utilizing two important methodologies: Hard work and elbow grease.  We weed by hand and we plant smart.  We implore physical barriers in order to prevent pests from getting  into our more delicate crops.  We rotate our crops, we compost and we rely on our experience to stay ahead of the bugs and disease.  So far these methods have proved successful for us and we are proud to share that in 2016, Over the course of our 28-week CSA season Brian & I harvested and distributed 89,880lbs of freshly picked, organic, thoughtfully grown produce to our CSA members. From Spring to Fall, the shares averaged 28lbs (with lighter shares in the Spring and heavier shares in the late summer and Fall) and included 12-20 items with a great variety of crops and delicious tasting veggies that have inspired many fantastic home cooked meals.  That’s 778lbs of produce per weekly share which means our members paid $1.49/lb for all their fresh, local, organic produce during the 2016 CSA season.

As farmers we enjoy and celebrate the amount of variety (with over 70 different kinds of vegetables and even more varieties of each) and bounty each season! We feel blessed as farmers in the Pacific NW to be able to grow such a beautiful array of vegetables for our community.  From berries and melons to brassicas and winter squash we can grow just about anything here! Every season we try out a few dozen or so new veggies and varieties.  Making our seed list in January is one of our favorite things to do in the winter… checking our notes and remembering which varieties grew the best, tasted the best etc.  Eating seasonally doesn’t get any better than living in the NW.  To learn more about our CSA, visit our CSA page!
