Yes, the Farm is OPEN!
To our valued customers:
Due to Western Washington’s 8th coldest April and rainiest May ever recorded, many of our crops have been delayed and quantities are limited as we enter the 2022 season.
However, we’re excited to have a variety of new offerings for you this year, starting with our Asian Greens mix, a colorful blend of greens with mustards providing a hint of spice. We also have our favorite Centennial Rhubarb available, and limited quantities of Eversweet Strawberries, bursting with flavor. You can place your order in our farm store right here on our website. We’ll have your items picked-fresh and ready for you when you arrive to pick up at the farm.
Rest assured as the weather warms and our fields and new greenhouse go into full production new items will be added to our online farm store as soon as they’re available.
We appreciate your business and look forward to welcoming you for our third season!
See you at the Farm! ~ Loren & Kathy

Rhubarb is one of those vegetables people have strong opinions about. Vegetable? That’s right, though a popular pie filling in 18th century Europe, rhubarb belongs to the polygonaceae species, commonly known as the buckwheat or knotweed family and is considered a vegetable.
