Acquire-Protect-Lifetime LeasesCFLT uses the Community Land Trust Model to preserve farmland. This means that after we buy or receive farmland as a donation, we oer farmers 99-year Agricultural Ground Leases. Farmers receive secure land tenure and the land remains in active farming forever. Farmers who have purchased or constructed housing or improvements on leased CFLT land can capture a fair value return on those investments by selling these to the next farmer.Agricultural Conservation EasementAgricultural Conservation Easements with an Option-to-Purchase can be a useful rst step in protecting farmland forever. In the right circumstances, CFLT can help landowners acquire compensation for permanently removing development rights from their farm property and for accepting a permanent farming requirement on the land. The Community Farm Land Trust works with the owner to steward the farmland.CFLT at Work:communityfarmlandtrust.orgWe acknowledge that for centuries prior, this land was occupied by the Salish Sea Tribes. These tribes lived along the waterways in what is now known as the South Sound subsisting on salmon & the resources of the surrounding prairies and forests.We give thanks for their stewardship of this land.Over the past 9 years Community Farm Land Trust preserved 216 acres of farmland in Thurston County.View aerial footage of these beautiful South Sound properties on the Community Farm Land Trust’s YouTube Channel: Family Historic FarmlandScatter Creek Farm & ConservancyGRuB (Garden-Raised Bounty)Oyster Bay Farm 29 acres 2021147 acres20131 acre201539 acres2015Join us in celebrating 25 years of farmland preservation in the South Sound!

The Community Farm Land Trust (CFLT) originated from the actions of a few passionate community members that were concerned about the future of a local family farm enterprise. (Learn more in the message below from one of our founders.) Over the years the work of the Trust has grown to include ownership of working farms and, along with its many other eorts, has helped to secure the health of our local food systems. CFLT has evolved to become a community asset and we could not accomplish our mission without YOUR support. Many wonderful community members have stepped up to join our eorts. As the Board Chair, it is a privilege to meet and work with them, from farmers to donors, from government ocials to business owners. This past year CFLT has had a number of successes. We are honored to be entrusted with the purchase of a portion of the James Family Historic Farmland. This farmland has been in one family for over 150 years. Trust ownership ensures it will remain as working farmland. Take a historical tour in the CFLT section as we reect on 25 years of preserving farms. Thanks to your support our annual Farms Forever fundraiser was a great success. The addition of our Locavore event inspired local businesses to participate, donating a percent of sales to help promote the vision of the Trust. In turn, CFLT supporters patronized the businesses. 2022 is o to a great start with two generous grants that assist with organizational operations and the printing and distribution of this Fresh From the Farm Guide. Help us celebrate by making a $25 donation in honor of our 25th anniversary. Consider becoming a member, volunteer, or a potential new board member. We couldn’t do what we do, including this Farm Guide, without YOU. Email farmland@ssc to share your interests. Thank you all for helping to keep agriculture a viable part of our community! I hope you enjoy reading this Farm Guide put together by our talented sta. Sincerely,Marcie Cleaver, Chair, CFLT Board of Directorscommunityfarmlandtrust.orgOrigins of Community Farm Land Trust (CFLT) CFLT was established in 1997 by a coalition of young farmers, environmental planners, low-income housing advocates, university faculty & students, and local food security advocates.The initial goal was to save the Evergreen Dairy in Littlerock from foreclosure and sale. A decade of capacity building followed with other attempts to acquire farmland, including a historic local blueberry farm and a 750 acre dairy farm.

The purchase of this land is a collaboration of important partners working together to conserve the land. Kirsop Farm - Colin Barricklow & Genine Bradwin (Farm #55) As CFLT's anchor tenant, Kirsop holds the 99 year Agricultural Ground Lease for most of the farmable acres. They own the farmhouse, a large loang shed, the former milking parlor, & a few other buildings. To learn more about how this property has beneted Kirsop's expansion, see page 65.A solar array, installed in November 2020, produces clean energy for farm use.Scatter Creek Farm & Conservancy (SCFC) Purchased: October 2013 Acres of Farmland Preserved: 147 acresWobbly Cart - Joseph Gabiou & Asha McElfresh (Farm #88) In 2016, Wobbly Cart purchased and upgraded "Building 8", a former dairy loang shed, which they currently use as a packing and washing station for fresh vegetables, refrigeration, CSA pick-up, & as a curing shed for specic fall produce.The current buildings are remnants of prior dairy operations from the 1930's.CFLT owns nearly 100 acres of prime farmland with water rights dedicated to sustainable local food production. Creekside Conservancy (CC) owns 48 acres bordering on the Chehalis River dedicated to conservation for wildlife, the protection of salmon habitat, & water quality in perpetuity.Celebrating 25 Years Community Farm Land Trust2022 Fresh From The Farm Guide2022199725 YEARSAt one time the James Family, immigrant farmers, owned a larger tract of land that included Scatter Creek Farm.

The land was transitioned through CFLT’s rst Agricultural Easement & preserved in perpetuity. Melissa & Nate, former OBF farm sta, bought the remaining value of the farm.Originally homesteaded from the late 1800’s. It has been farmed continuously ever since. To learn more about OBF, see page 68.OBF supports a high biodiversity with tide lands, grazed elds, gardens, hedgerows, wetlands, seasonal streams, & a mature forest plot.James Family Historic FarmlandPurchased: August 2021Amount of Farmland Preserved: 29 acresOur most recent farmland purchase was a portion of a 1852 Donation Land Claim to the James family.

through the labor of many and the support of its members. Along the way, the farm provided an entry point for quite a few young women farmers. Julie Puhich has been with Common Ground from the start. Julie fell into growing vegetables for market in her early 20's and is only a little surprised to nd herself still at it. Her mentor Jasper Martin, then in his late 70's, demonstrated clearly for her the joyful possibility of farming into old age. These days Common Ground is in transition to new ground and new ownership. In 2017 the CSA moved to south Thurston County while also beginning a hand-o to the next generation of farmers. Tierney Creech rst came to farming through an interest in food and community and has stayed for her love of physical work, mental challenge, and a life lived mostly outdoors. She arrived at Common Ground in 2013, having worked on farms from New Zealand to Orcas Island, and has dug in for the long haul.For the past ve seasons Tierney and Julie have been farming in tandem, with Tierney managing their Maytown eld and Julie their eld near Rochester. Enter the Community Farmland Trust (CFLT) in By Julie PuhichCommon Ground has a history nearly as long as Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) has been in the U.S. Born in 1990 from the collaboration of Dana Schuerholz, Carol Poole, Aggie Agapito, Nancy Laich, and Julie Puhich, Common Ground's home for its rst twenty-ve years was a farm on Olympia's west side. The rst season saw 50 members, a surfeit of vegetables, and the expectation that every member household would help out on the farm twice each season. The proximity to town was ideal for spawning community. A neighbor delivered CSA boxes to drop sites around Olympia in the farm's '68 Ford pickup with her two young children buckled in beside her. Soon a system evolved in which a few members traded regular harvest help for their shares. There were potlucks, harvest parties, and the Annual Potato Dig.Fast forward through many seasons of interns and apprentices, eld workers, and nascent collectives. Common Ground became an institution of sorts 2021, with a successful bid to purchase part of the historic James family farm adjacent to their Rochester elds. Common Ground CSA has now become the lessee of this new CFLT acquisition. The farm includes both prairie ground, where they grow vegetables, and ood plain, now in hay. Magnicent Garry Oaks line a terrace between the elds, tracing a former course of the Chehalis River. Beyond the lower eld lies the river itself, a wild thicket of woodland in between.For Tierney and Julie, the opportunity to farm this ground presents itself as both a gift and a challenge. With it comes room for year-long fallow rotations and the security of a long-term lease. They are jazzed to resume the relative ease of farming mostly in one place, and of working together most days. Yet this land is simultaneously the traditional homeland of the Q'way'a yilq', or Upper Chehalis Peoples, and part of an 1852 Territorial Land Grant made to immigrant settlers. For the Common Ground farmers, this legacy feels ambiguous and complicated. Their intention and hope in becoming lessees are to broaden their understanding of that legacy and the community they serve, and to nd a way within their work to address it.communityfarmlandtrust.orgCommon GroundNew CFLT Leasee!10

“I have been very fortunate in how well people are accepting new and dierent products to the market. There’s a whole spectrum of Asian produce that people are not familiar with. It’s a lot about me educating the customers as I’m meeting them.” Gai choy is her favorite of the fall/winter season with a sweet mustard avor and is grown from their family’s heirloom seed harvested bi-annually. Short choy sum is another winter veggie that she showcases at the market. “In the spring and summer, I will be introducing the market to a whole new ball game of produce they haven’t seen yet,” Mak Lee exclaims. Keep an eye out for gai lan, also called Chinese broccoli. Mak’s decision to transform her life, much like her mother did years ago, has brought her back to herself, her farming roots, and her cultural heritage. (See farm listing #17)Mak’s Garden at the Olympia Farmers Market is part of Mak (pronounced MAKE) Lee's journey following her parents’ footsteps back to her farming roots and cultural heritage. In 1980, Mak Lee's parents took factory jobs near Everett after immigrating to the United States from a war torn Laos. The grueling demands of factory work, coupled with poor treatment due to language barriers, had the couple reevaluating how to make a living for their growing family. Mak’s father shifted to a better paying job as a certied mechanic. Mak’s mother took care of the children during the day and continued with factory work at night. The impact on her mother’s mental health took a toll and it was time to get back to what she knew best, farming. Her mother grew up farming in Laos. She carried the knowledge of growing vegetables within her. Mak’s parents leased 20 acres in the Everett area. Their garden started as a way to feed the family. It grew into a thriving wholesale business for Seattle’s International District. Over the years, they sacriced quality family time together to ensure the farm’s success. Saving every cent they could, they eventually purchased a 60 acre family farm, OJ’s Produce, located in Ethel. While growing a robust wholesale produce business, Mak’s parents put their seven children through college. 2020 was a hard year for many, and for Mak Lee, it was profoundly dicult. She had left a job in Seattle, faced a health crisis, and a family emergency. Mak 2022 Fresh From The Farm Guidecommunityfarmlandtrust.orgwas forced to reevaluate her life, a similar situation as her mother many years ago while struggling in the factory. Mak sold what she owned and moved to her parents’ farm to help them as she gured out her next steps. Through her parents’ guidance, Mak began to work a two acre piece of their land. She learned how to plant, thin, and harvest vegetables for the market. Knowing the wait for a booth at the Olympia Farmers Market can sometimes be a year long, Mak decided to start the application process. Surprisingly within a month, she obtained her business license, completed her site visit, and was able to oer Asian produce as Mak’s Garden at the market in 2021. “There is no equipment to harvest the Asian produce we grow,” Mak explained. These vegetables are so tender and fragile, and they grow directly on the ground. She continued, “All of this is done on your hands and knees. You’re cutting every single vegetable by hand and you’re packaging every vegetable by hand.” Land is one of the biggest hurdles for up-and-coming farmers. "I am so fortunate that I’m able to lease two acres from my parents. If I didn’t have that, I wouldn’t know where to begin." Mak’s inherent and invaluable farming knowledge can be traced through her mother’s family lineage dating back several generations from mother to child. “For the rst time, I feel like I have a grasp on my life.” Market Farmer SpotlightMak’s GardenMak’s GardenPhoto courtesy of Mak's Gardenwikimedia.orgwikimedia.orgwikimedia.orgGai ChoyGai Lan with Oyster SauceChoy Sum30

Help the next generation of farmers thrive in a viable farm economy!Keep the Change!!Tenino Farmers Market began in 2005 on a small lot in a city park with only six vendors. It was founded by a couple dedicated to getting it o the ground. When the couple retired, the market’s future rested on its Board of Directors. The following year the market moved near the school district oce, and in 2016 it relocated to its current location in downtown Tenino on Olympia Street. This location beneted the market in many ways. It strengthened its connections with local businesses, provided greater visibility, and allowed the market to expand its oerings both for vendors and consumers with an expanded schedule. The market now runs from May to September on Saturdays from 10am-3 pm. Prior to moving downtown, the market’s lack of foot trac created some challenges. Sherry Bachmann, a vendor since 2009 and board member since 2016, said, “This has been a growing process. We would struggle every year to get and retain produce vendors.” Last year, the market grew to an average attendance of 300 to 500 people per day with approximately 22 vendors. This expansion and success has brought produce vendors to the forefront of the market. “Not only do we have more produce vendors, we have more types of produce available now.” At the start of the pandemic, essential vendors were the only booths allowed on-site, giving produce vendors more prominence in the market and providing them more stability. Many passionate people worked to promote the market and continue its success. Sherry explained that part of the growth in the number of vendors can be attributed to aordability. For the rst time, it has been necessary to hire a market manager. The vendors at the market are like a family and really enjoy the time they spend together. On the second Saturday of each month, an adjacent community artisan market joins the farmers market. It showcases handmade goods and wares from local artists and crafters. The Tenino Farmers Market’s ow and vibe is brought alive by their volunteer site manager. “We are very blessed to have a wonderful site manager, Sean Broadbent,” Sherry notes. He helps with set up, establishes the site map every Saturday, and plays great music for the shoppers and vendors. Tenino Farmers Market oers a variety of programs for low-income individuals and families. In 2021, donations were provided through the Senior Farmers Market Nutrition Program and WIC. In addition, a grant from Timberland Bank provided $4 tokens to children and seniors that helped to oset their purchases for the day. Farmers also donated leftover produce at the end of market day to the local food bank. This year, the market would like to increase their food vendor options. Find their vendor policies and application online, Stay tuned on Saturdays for live Facebook videos of their vendors and what you can nd at the market.2022 Fresh From The Farm GuideFarmers Market SpotlightPhotos courtesy of Tenino Farmers Market34

Food insecurity refers to USDA’s measure of lack of access, at times, to enough food for an active, healthy life for all household members and limited or uncertain availability of nutritionally adequate foods. Food-insecure households are not necessarily food insecure all the time. Food insecurity may reect a household’s need to make trade-os between important basic needs, such as housing or medical bills, and purchasing nutritionally adequate foods.communityfarmlandtrust.orgWhat is Food Insecurity?Food Insecurity & Food AccessIt’s estimated 273,387 people (15% of our state’s food insecure population) are above the poverty thresholds of SNAP, WIC, & other nutrition programs, thus DON’T qualify for food assistance.that is 804,080 people.11% of Washington State is food insecure,FOOD GAPS PER COUNTYTotal food insecure people per countyIndividuals that qualify for food assistanceIndividuals that DON’T qualify for food assistance $ needed to close the gap in food assistanceGrays Harbor10,86015% of the county9,23185% of 10,8601,60015% of 9,231$6,339,000Lewis11,060 14% of the county9,180 83% of 11,0601,88017% of 9,180$6,155,000Mason8,860 14% of the county7,26282% of 8,8601,60018% of 7,262$5,041,000Thurston30,940 11% of the county20,11165% of 30,94010,82915% of 20,111$17,564,000Food Insecurity definition and data on pages 35-41 is from:, and Banks play an important role in our communities by distributing donated and purchased groceries directly to food insecure individuals and families.

Food Access & Nutrition Incentive ProgramsFood Access & Nutrition Incentive ProgramsFood Banks have become even more essential since the pandemic hit, as more people lost hours or their jobs. They help bridge the gap for people who are food insecure and play a vital role in assistance for those who DO NOT qualify for other types of nutritional assistance programs. FMNP (Farmers Market Nutrition Programs) There are two federal funded FMNP programs: Women, Infants and Children (WIC) and Senior FMNP. WIC provides resources for pregnant women and women with infants and children up to 5 years of age, who are found to be at nutritional risk. This program provides fresh, unprepared, locally grown fruits and vegetables to WIC participants, and expands the awareness, use of, and sales at farmers markets. Senior FMNP provides low-income seniors with coupons that can be exchanged for eligible foods (fruits, vegetables, honey, and fresh-cut herbs) at farmers markets, roadside stands, and CSAs. For more about FMNP programs visit, (Electronic Benets Transfer)The Washington Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP-formerly known as food stamps) helps low-income individuals and families obtain a more nutritious diet by supplementing their income with SNAP benets. These funds are available through EBT cards that work just like a debit card. These benets are accepted at some farmers markets, individual farms/farmstands and even some community-supported agriculture (CSA) programs. Eligible items are the same as at the grocery store and include fruits, vegetables, baked goods, seeds, meat, jams and jellies, bread, sh, vegetable starts, syrup and honey, dairy, and poultry. Check with your local farmers market to see how to use your EBT benets while shopping there.

The entire school helps plant the garden. Kindergartners start by planting the pumpkin patch, each grade level planting a dierent crop, ultimately learning about their vegetable starts and gaining a little more responsibility in the garden each year. The school does a total of 30 school garden eld trips over the course of 6-8 weeks. TCFB hosts evening programs that facilitate the next generation of parents/families to continue the program’s success. One program involves families in meal preparation using garden harvests. It provides an opportunity for the kids to show their parents what they have been learning. Occasionally the parents jump in and are part of the learning and teaching. “What I love about this program is that it is not just about kids.” Michaela continued, “We’re all learning together; students, parents, and teachers.” TCFB oers many programs for the community including the Emergency Food Assistance Program, a Mobile Food Bank System, Holiday Meal Boxes, and more. They prioritize kids through the FORKids program, Summer Lunch, Baby Day, SNAP-ED Nutrition Education, and the School Gardens programs. The new Lacey location has a farmstand with a variety of produce from their on-site garden and other growers, including home growers that have an overabundance. During the growing season, Saturday mornings are a great time to drop o veggies. Visit their website at for more program and donation information. 2022 marks the 50th anniversary for the Thurston County Food Bank. More than 67,000 individuals were served in 2020, with 20% of those never needing services before. Food banks are critical in addressing food insecurity in our communities and we are lucky to have this resource in our community for all these years. Celebrate their 50 years of service by joining the “Giving 50” campaign this year. Donate 50 lbs of food, a $50 contribution, or 50 hours of volunteer service.School Gardens @thurstoncountyfoodbank in Washington state? It starts by educating our youth in the basics of cultivating, harvesting, and processing food! Connecting kids to where their food comes from is the main focus of the School Gardens Program (SGP). "We are not only educating our next generation of farmers, we're also teaching the next generation of consumers," SGP manager, Michaela Winkley explains. The program aspires to teach kids that food security is a life skill to learn early. Along with AmeriCorps sta and college interns, you can nd Michaela in local schools and community gardens. Her passion is teaching children to observe the wonder of nature and love of locally grown food.The Thurston County Food Bank (TCFB) School Gardens Program has been serving low-income students by providing them with fresh, nutritious produce since 2010. There are at least ve schools that participate, focusing on schools that have a larger population of kids on reduced lunch. Michaela consults with each school on their goals and the outcomes they want to achieve. Some schools focus on growing food for the food bank while others prioritize teaching kids about how to grow food. The program grows with the children as they grow. Just as a seed themselves, they start at the elementary level, building basic garden knowledge and skills. This prepares students with a deeper level of learning and understanding when they take horticulture classes in middle school, high school, and beyond.A collaboration with Mountain View Elementary, St. Mark Lutheran Church (SMLC), and the SGP is a great example of this type of learning through the years. Since 2010 the SMLC has grown 13,000 pounds of produce annually for the food bank on a one-acre plot in Lacey. -Michaela Winkley, SGP ManagerThurston County Food BankPhotos courtesy of Thurston County Food Bank School Gardens Program41

Grays Harbor County Farm Spotlight of working with endurance horses spurred her interest in farming. “You have to realize that until 100 years ago, horses were the farm. You didn’t have tractors to do the heavy lifting.” She continued, “If you wanted to move anything, it was a horse, a beast of burden. Until the engine became popular, a horse was all you had for centuries.” Besides raising and selling horses, Renee also sells angora goats, goat ber, honey, eggs, chickens, and heritage turkeys. She and her niece, Tiany, handle all the vetting, feeding, and care for the animals. Renee’s love for animals shines through in her education about livestock care, and in the precautionary safety measures she actively pursues on her farm. “It's worth it just to look at them out in the eld, even if I don’t sell any horses or goats,” she states. The res in California prompted Renee Taylor and Dan Berger to move to Washington. In 2013, they purchased a 50 acre farm in Montesano. It took until 2017 for them to relocate all their animals to their new homestead and lifelong dream, Argos Farms PNW. “Any day the farm is not on re, we’re in heaven,” Renee exclaims. While they no longer have to worry about having enough water from the Colorado River for the animals, their new farm is bordered by the Chehalis River and much of it is wetland. Now they focus on precautions around potential ooding with the safety of their animals at the forefront of their minds. A robust deck with a ramp was built around the outside of their home. “By chance, we get some kind of tsunami or ood, worse comes to worse, the horses and goats can go right up there.” Renee is prepared for the worst nature can bring, even if it means having their animals right next to the house or spending three days straight keeping them watered during a heat wave.Argos FarmsRenee and Dan were surprised to nd no farmers markets in Grays Harbor County when they moved to their new farm. After a year, Renee saw an ad in the paper about a meeting to start a farmers market in Aberdeen and she decided to attend. Little did she know, she would leave as the vice president of the board of directors for the Aberdeen Sunday Market. Renee helped with the necessary legal paperwork and through the strength and dedication of the board and many volunteers, the market was born. Being a livestock farmer, Renee doesn’t have a lot of items to sell at the Aberdeen Sunday Market until the fall when her heritage turkeys become available for Thanksgiving. Since the beginning of the market, Renee brought her animals to educate folks on the feeding and care. She also covered the shearing cycles of her angora goats. In the past, Tiany set up demonstrations for milking and shearing. Children loved petting and feeding the goats. A tom turkey, Junior, was the star of the market. Renee explained that her weekly contribution has largely been an educational labor of love. “I always have someone that I am teaching,” said Renee. “People need to know where their food and clothing come from and what is entailed in those processes. Even people living in rural areas still don’t know.” Lastly, she gives advice to anyone thinking about farming. “I would say if you want to homestead or to farm, don’t wait until you retire, because it's heavy physical work. When you retire you might have the time and maybe even the money, but you might not have the energy or strength. Make it a priority in your life if it's something important to you.” (See farm listing #1)Grays Harbor County Farm Spotlight2022 Fresh From The Farm Guidecommunityfarmlandtrust.orgPhotos courtesy of Argos Farm44

Lewis County Farm Spotlight, previously Terralumina Gardens, shows the need for farmland preservation while showcasing the resilience and persistence of farmers with a passion for growing fresh food. Malachi Starling, age 25, has been farming in a wide variety of locations since they were 10 years old. Their love of farming was inuenced by their great grandmother. “I really wanted to live on a farm. That’s where most of my relatives lived so I had some context of farms being ‘cool’." Finding secure and rich farmland kept their family farm on the move. Generally disenchanted with city life outside of Seattle, Malachi, with their mom and step dad, made their rst attempt at farming part time on a demonstration farm. The soil was heavy clay and eventually the project dissolved. Malachi recalls, “I don’t know if we ate much o of that farm, it was rough.” A sharecropping opportunity on a couple of acres surfaced at an old dairy farm with vast pasture land in Orting. “That soil was incredible because they had cows on it,” Malachi explains. “The vegetables out of that place were monstrosities.” After working this land for a few years the owners received a generous oer from someone to buy the land and the family needed to move again. Wanting more stability, the family established a lease agreement with an option to buy on acreage in Toledo thanks to the generous nancial help of Malachi’s great grandma. “She really wanted to see us succeed, to farm, and become stable there. Three-and-a-half out of ve acres were put in bio-intensive vegetable cultivation,” Malachi explained. The tireless hours of labor had nally paid o. They were able to successfully oer a CSA. Then misfortune. A series of events left this vibrant farm severely understaed. No longer able to sustain Lewis County Farm Spotlightthe demands of farmlife, they lost the farm. This led the family to a small property in South Tacoma where they established a new urban farm with vegetable plots, goats, chickens, and more. In addition, the family ran a bakery and Renee, Malachi’s mother, went to school for midwifery. Development pressures eventually led the family to seek new, temporary land arrangements in Lewis County. Meanwhile, Malachi explored other opportunities in Seattle. As luck would have it, ve acres in Onalaska became available to Renee in 2017 through a friend who was ready to retire from farming. Farming, family life, and schooling all happened simultaneously there. Soon the farm became too much to manage with the blossoming of Renee’s new career. In 2020, Malachi was asked to return to Lewis County to take over the farming. Malachi and four tight-knit friends hit the ground running. The rst day they were on the land together was June 17th and a new farm was born. “That’s why we decided on the name, Strawberry Moon Farm, because that’s the closest full moon to the day we came.” Malachi doesn’t see this as a linear passing down of farmland. Instead they relate it to “a sort of reciprocity for all of those years between when I was 12 to 22, when I was working as hard as my mom and step dad were working,” they explained. The need for permanent, aordable, rich agricultural land is a challenge for many new and small farmers. Malachi’s story is one that showcases this need as well as the innate drive and hard work of passionate farmers that bring food to our tables. We look forward to seeing Strawberry Moon Farm thrive in Lewis County. Find them at the Centralia Farmers Market and learn more about their farm in listing #23. 2022 Fresh From The Farm Guidecommunityfarmlandtrust.orgStrawberry Moon FarmPhotos are courtesy of Strawberry Moon Farm48

 established in 1888 in what is now Shelton, has been passed down through generations. It was first farmed by Grant Jones’ great grandfather Jacob Edmund Jones who left Kansas in search of a farm to raise his family. Various members of his family worked the land growing vegetables and grapes in the 1920’s and 30’s, transitioning to a small-scale livestock operation in the 40’s. Grant’s Uncle Fred owns 120 acres of the original family farm, lives on-site, and manages their forested acres sustainably with no clear cuts. Grant’s parents and their family lived there in the 80’s and grew strawberries, raspberries, pumpkins, and Christmas trees before moving to Brinnon. Grant told his mom when he was young that he “wanted to be a farmer.” She said it was “really hard to do that nowadays because all the farms are really big and they don’t make very much money.” Somewhere in the back of his mind, he never let go of the idea to prove that he could do it.After graduating from the University of Washington, Grant got his feet wet in the farming world by starting a business called Seattle Microfarm. They built and installed 35 backyard gardens for people in the first year. Half of those were full-service vegetable gardens where they returned weekly to help cultivate the vegetables and manage the garden beds. Grant then went on to other business endeavors for the next 12 years. Eventually, Grant left the city in search of more trees and greener pastures at Hungry Hollow, his family’s farm. Grant stated, “I wanted 3 things: bees, chickens, and blueberries,” and as luck would have it, he got a lot more. He started by homesteading and trying different things on a small scale for his own needs. After some trial and error, he then decided to proceed on a larger scale as part of a farm business. His business expanded from pasture-raised chicken and eggs to pasture-raised pork and beef. Grant currently manages about 20 acres in pastures. Twelve of those are intensively managed with chickens, pigs, and cows. He also has fruit trees and grows hay for the animals. After figuring out what he wanted to do as a farmer and what products to bring to consumers, he had to develop a sales strategy. Eggs were easy to sell but finding a market for meat birds was more of a challenge. In the fall of 2019, Hungry Hollow began shipping products throughout Western Washington and their sales began to take off in 2020. Grant advocates strongly for local farms. “Buy from your local farm. If you are not in our area, reach out anyway, and we will help connect you to your local farmer.” He emphasizes that buying locally addresses environmental concerns even when shipping products because it benefits the customer with a higher quality product and supports the local farmer. “Small producers aren’t necessarily more efficient; they don’t necessarily have a lower carbon footprint. What it comes down to ultimately is local,” he explains. He examines his carbon footprint by limiting the region where he ships his products. Grant continues, “If you can buy local, then it all works out, but what we don’t want is to have these small local farms shipping nationally. That’s the worst of both worlds. It becomes problematic from a sustainability standpoint.” Grant’s larger vision for Western Washington and the future of Hungry Hollow is to build sustainable and positive relationships with our unique environment by preserving and enhancing it.Check out Hungry Hollow Farm’s listing #27 and website for an array of products and delivery options.Hungry Hollow FarmMason County Farm SpotlightMason County Farm Spotlight2022 Fresh From The Farm Guidecommunityfarmlandtrust.orgPhotos courtesy of Hungary Hollow Farm54

Cosmic Turtle FarmCosmic Turtle FarmThurston County Farm SpotlightCosmic Turtle Farm is an evolution in growing food for Tom Wiseman and his family. “There’s not a cookie-cutter way that you come about growing food. It used to be back in the day, you grew up on the farm, and then you took over the farm, and you’re a farmer! I think there’s a re-emergence in growing food and we’re all coming from dierent angles.”The dream of starting a farm for Tom began as a seed that was planted 17 years ago with a visit to the PNW from Golden, Colorado. “Nature is loud here. If you listen to it, it's talking to you.” Tom heard loud and clear, and the idea of Cosmic Turtle Farm and the importance of growing food began to take root. Cosmic Turtle Farm is ocially in its rst year as a business. It is a great partnership between Tom and his daughter Alissa. Tom works hands-on with production and growing microgreens while Alissa helps with the website, logo, marketing, and invoicing. When new ideas sprout up, they work together to create eciency and to bring new products to the consumer.The farm’s name, Cosmic Turtle Farm, comes from a story from many indigenous tribes that reminds us that we are all on a live planet. “What nature does is that it gives you a feeling of abundance that one little seed is going to give you more food than you could possibly eat. It’s amazing,” Tom marvels. “Every time you plant a tray and see people eating, it is all connecting you back to the living earth. It’s the ‘cosmic’ in Cosmic Turtle.”Tom’s long-term goal is to approach the land with a permaculture lens by adding food forests, a market garden, and edible owers. His chickens and goats are already helping clear and fertilize the land. He recently purchased their rst tractor which will help change their landscape to better address their needs for their long-term goals with an abundance mindset. They look forward to a new farmstand providing food year-round. Cosmic Turtle Farm’s main product is currently microgreens. Tom’s interest in microgreens led him to expand his knowledge with a course from Nate Dodson. He then did a mentorship with Donnie Greens and Micro Acres in Canada. “It’s amazing what seeds do in a controlled environment and how seeds hold that packet of information.” He stays up-to-date on all things microgreens in Facebook groups and has learned the importance of creating systems for planting and harvesting from Curtis Stone, a commercial urban farmer in Kelowna, BC. Broccoli microgreens are proving to be quite a hit. Pea shoots and sunower seed sprouts are a delicious staple for the kids. “Conquering cilantro was great for us.” You can nd them at Don Juan’s in Tenino. Cosmic Turtle’s diverse microgreens are sprouting up in more restaurants in the area. Tom states, “We are a source for fresh ingredients year-round.” He believes in supporting his local community. Tom notes, “When my food is on their table, that’s a huge honor.” Add a big pop of freshness to your table by considering their Microgreens CSA.Thurston County Farm SpotlightPhotos are courtesy of Cosmic Turtle Farm2022 Fresh From The FarmAya SushiCarbon PopDon Juan’s in TeninoOctapas CafeOlympia Food Co-opSpud’s Produce MarketTumwater Farmers MarketTenino Market FreshYelm Food Co-opLearn more about their Microgreens CSA on page 24 and refer to their farm listing #4658

Farm to Fork - Restaurant Spotlight - Jeremy's Farm to Table restaurant began as an oshoot of Pam Wildhaber’s family fruit stand. It is the product of family tradition and current-day family ties to farming. Canning was a family tradition that was passed down in Pam’s family through generations. “We always had a big garden and canned everything that we grew,” said Pam. She drove to Yakima to pick up cases of fruit for canning. Before she knew it, she needed a bigger truck because she was buying fruit for her friends, too. A simple desire to can fruits and veggies blossomed into her family’s fruit stand. “My very first summer I got all my local strawberries from Reisinger’s out here in Adna.” It began as a 10’ x 20’ tent in the parking lot of their family’s commercial retail space and grew to 30’ x 60’. Pam continued, “I never get tired of that trip to Yakima because we are now buying from third-generation farmers. We love to go right to the farmers over there and get produce straight out of the field.”The commercial building has been in the Wildhaber family since 1974 and housed several businesses over time. Her eldest son Jeremy took a shine to the family’s fruit stand and was well-loved by their customers. Pam and Jeremy dreamed of having a restaurant to showcase Pam’s home cooking. “I loved to cook and made everything from scratch and tried to always cook really healthy. It was always a family thing to eat healthy,” Pam stated. In 2012, space opened inside the building and the opportunity to start a restaurant, Jeremy’s Farm to Table, was ripe for the picking. As the footprint of the successful restaurant grew each year, their outdoor farm stand quickly outgrew its space. In 2019, she opened a second location at 1849 N. National Avenue in Chehalis. It’s open year-round with indoor and outdoor space. Pam explained, “Our fruit stand can now go back to the big production it was before the restaurant started.” It is now Jeremy’s Fruit Stand and Meat Market, a one-stop-shop expanded to include butcher shop quality meat, fresh seafood, local dairy, specialty cheeses, bread, beer, and wine, as well as fruit and produce. Family has always been at the center of their business. Pam and her eldest daughter Amber run the day-to-day operations of both locations. Jeremy is now an off-site catering chef and helps with their famous holiday buffets. He also has his own farm and is working towards his WSDA certification with plans to sell his Wagyu beef to the restaurant. Several other family members have become suppliers to the restaurant and farm stand. Pam’s daughter, April Santee, provides herbs, lettuce, kale, beets, and carrots during the summer months. Nephew, Jeremy’s Farm to TableFarm to Fork Restaurant SpotlightPhotos courtesy of Jeremy's Farm to Tablecommunityfarmlandtrust.orgJosh Hyatt and his wife Melissa Henderson of Newaukum Valley Farm, supply the restaurant with some of its produce and flowers. “We love their heirloom tomatoes for our caprese salad.” Pam adds, “As far as my producers; most of my proteins, cheese, milk, and eggs are also locally sourced.” Catering to dietary needs like gluten-free diets sets Jeremy’s Farm to Table apart, and they are happy to accommodate. They only carry gluten-free flour to avoid any cross-contamination. All their breading, breakfasts, and desserts are gluten-free (gf ). Be sure to give their gf Walla Walla onion rings a try! Pam beams, “The most rewarding thing is when families come in and they're happy and everyone feels good when they leave. People can always count on getting really good, fresh food.”2022 Fresh From The Farm Guide77
