Nestled between a mountain and the sea, our farm is a patchwork of small fields, intermingled with old growth forest, creeks, and a pond
We are tucked below the north side of Mount Erskine and just moments away from the ocean of Booth Canal. The farm is truly surrounded by nature and benefits greatly: temperatures are moderated, pollinators pass through, pest-predators keep our fields bug free, there is a wealth of fungal networks, and we are sheltered from wind. On 1.5 acres we grow an assortment of veggies, fruits and flowers alongside pastured pigs, ducks, and goats. Over the 15 years of farming this land, we have adapted to what grows best and we have grown symbiotically with our customer base. We are in direct dialogue with our community and we tailor our crop plan to their demand.

We use organic farming methods to produce nutrient dense food and enhance the local ecosystem. This includes adding organic amendments such as seaweed meal and rock dusts, cover cropping, use of natural and woven plastic mulches, minimal tillage, incorporating farm animals on a small scale, sourcing high quality organic manure, and choosing organic seeds.
