WHAT WE GROW
FREE RANGE FORESTED
HERITAGE MEAT CHICKENS
After raising hatchery breed meat chickens in moveable outdoor pens for 4 years, we switched to an entirely new system of "Hatch-to-Harvest" chickens. We overwinter breeding stock of a unique heritage breed based in Bellingham, WA, hatch out 250 chicks at a time in our industrial incubator, and raise them free-range in the dense PNW conifer forest. Ready in 14 weeks, these birds are a world apart from the industry-standard Cornish Cross, acquiring most of their nutrition from foraging for bugs and supplemented on Lopez and Skagit soaked peas, barley, and wheat. The ultimate goal is to produce a bird that can be sustained on island resources as much as possible. Our meat chickens have a pleasant life: a quiet view of the sunrise and sunset every single day, fresh air for every breath, and gentle song and chatter from their human caretakers. We respectfully slaughter and carefully clean each and every bird on-farm to create high-quality chicken for our customers to savor around the dinner table.
Our small-but-mighty 1/4-acre market garden is bursting with life, with plants squeezed into every available square foot. We focus on producing an abundance of diverse tender salad greens for your enjoyment from October-May, when most other farmers on the island are taking a much-needed break. In addition to these tasty greens, you'll find flowers tucked away both for beauty and pollinator attraction, beds of medicinal herbs, fruit trees, and borders of native plants.
WINTER SALAD GREENS
SEASONAL BOUQUETS MAY- OCTOBER
A side-project that brings much joy and creative flow, we grow a variety of annual and perennial cut flowers for sale from May-October, flower & garlic braids in July and August, and dried arrangements in the fall and winter. Flowers are picked at the correct stage and treated with utmost care to ensure customers enjoy a long vase life of color and beauty.
