By the time you read this 2023 edition of our local farm guide, plant starts will be ourishing in high tunnels and cute new baby farm animals will be frolicking in the elds. Farmers will be settling into long days nurturing their animals and plants. The fruits of their labor will be displayed at local farmers markets and in CSA boxes. Summer is the season of growing abundance with an increasing variety of avorful food, owers, and plants.Did you know that farms provide more than just food for human consumption? They provide habitat for wildlife and a place for surface water to penetrate the soil. This water recharges the aquifers we all depend on. Community Farmland Trust is proud of the work it does to steward the farmland it owns and has conservation easements on. Yearly farm visits ensure that the conservation and sustainable practices that have been agreed to are being followed.The Trust actively looks for opportunities to enhance the wildlife habitat on its farms. A nesting roost for osprey was built on Scatter Creek Farm & Conservancy that has edged two osprey chicks yearly since its inception. Our James Family Historic Farmland has a number of large old Garry Oak trees. Unfortunately, the land beneath it is infested with invasive ivy, blackberries, and holly. We will be planning work parties to remove these invasive species and replace them with native plants. More examples of CFLT’s active stewardship can be found in the pages that follow. It takes a community. A big thank you to our farmtastic supporters! Our work is not possible without you! If you care about preserving local agriculture and the ecological habitat it provides, think about becoming a member of the Community Farm Land Trust (see page 10 for more details). We welcome people from diverse backgrounds within our community. Volunteer on one of our committees, for on-farm projects, or become a new board member. Your support is essential to the viability and success of our work. Together, we are making a dierence!Sincerely,Marcie Cleaver, Co-Chair, CFLT Board of DirectorsMake a difference.P.O.

We believe in the viability of local small-scale farms and when farmers follow the best farming practices their work benets not only their farm family but the community. We all benet from a strong local agricultural economy and a healthier environment.Farmers on our preserved farmland (Scatter Creek Farm & Conservancy, GRuB, Oyster Bay Farm, & James Family Historic Farmland), follow organic certication practices. No industrial pesticides, herbicides, or fungicides are used to ensure clean water for our streams and rivers. Our farms follow best management practices recommended by organizations such as the regional Conservation Districts, Salmon-Safe standards, and Federal/State Organic Certication.CFLT farms are committed to enhancing soil fertility and organic soil matter with natural materials and cover crops. Sustainable farming practices encourage the microbial and invertebrate diversity of the soil food webs. This community of soil organisms supports the larger food webs that all wild creatures depend on. Ourfarms help to protect struggling bee and buttery populations by avoiding industrial, broad-spectrum pesticides and herbicides.Making Our Soil Healthy!Did you know that incredible organisms are working in the ground below us? These organisms eat, grow, and move through the soil decomposing organic matter like manure and plant residue. They prevent pollution by making the soil more porous which increases inltration and reduces runo to our waterways. These soil allies kill crop pests while larger animals above ground feed on them.Photos on pages 8-9 are courtesy of Fletcher Ward unless otherwise noted.8

to reach in the future.” One way they hope to increase participation in these programs at the market is to shift to electronic distribution of benets.The market seeks to increase its oerings through local partnerships. It is working with city and county ocials to increase the space at the market to allow for a more diverse array of products and vendors. By limiting the barriers to entry for vendors, the market is ideal for beginning farmers and businesses, allowing them to showcase their products to the local community. The market is also partnering with commercial kitchens to help nd solutions for potential vendors to be certied to oer foods that are dicult to permit. To improve the customer’s experience, they want more local farmers and vendors. Paul says, “...especially fruit and meat growers, as well as processed food vendors such as jams, jellies, fermented food, baked goods, and ready-to-eat food businesses.”Everyone, including your pets, can enjoy the friendly atmosphere found at the downtown Shelton Farmers Market on Saturdays. Established in 1997, it has remained true to its hyper-local roots. The variety of local farmers and businesses are a crucial component that ensures high-quality products and value for market customers.Local musicians and thematic programs provide entertainment and fun for the whole family. Art, crafts, farm animals, dierent foods, and more are featured. Monthly Kids Days and Senior Days provide special programming and sales for every age. Agricultural animal sales, such as chickens, ducks, rabbits, and occasionally larger animals, are a unique feature of the market. Last year, they even hosted Country Fair Day with events and competitions similar to what one would nd at a state fair.Sales at the market have increased 35% for the last three years. Individual vendors are seeing a signicant increase in sales and are oering higher-quality products, while the average number of vendors remains consistent. Shelton Farmers Market worked hard to operate safely throughout 2023 Fresh From The Farm Guidecommunityfarmlandtrust.orgthe pandemic resulting in more customers attending the market as a safe, aordable, and reliable place to shop.Paul Miller, farmer and manager of Skokomish Valley Farms and Shelton Farmers Market Treasurer for the last four years, said, “One of the main reasons grocery shoppers choose to visit farmers markets is to become more in touch with how, where, and by whom their produce was farmed.” He continues, “This improves communications, ideas, and understanding between customers and farmers. This always serves to further sustainable, regenerative farming practices.”The Shelton Farmers Market, a member of the Washington State Farmers Market Association, is able to accept EBT and distribute matching “market bucks” through the WA State Market Match program. It also participates in the Farmers Market Nutrition Program. These programs help make food more accessible to low income customers. Response to these programs have increased the past couple years, but Paul says, “There are still many eligible customers that have not yet taken advantage of these programs that we hope Farmers Market SpotlightPhotos courtesy of Shelton Farmers MarketShelton Farmers MarketShelton Farmers Market2023 Fresh From The Farm GuideSee market listing on pages 32-33.30

Bee Organic Farm and Apiary, emerged when Rocki Horton, an avid gardener, saw videos of a famous gardener obtaining sustainable yields from a small plot of land. Rocki and Rob Horton lived on an old, abandoned Christmas tree farm with their family in Elma, WA. When blight and tree rot forced them to cut down most of their trees,they found a way to repurpose their land so it would directly benet their community. Having run businesses in the past, they started looking at places they could sell the produce they grew, from farmers markets to stores, schools, hospitals, and more. Since Rocki is a full-time bookkeeper/accountant, and Rob knew he could handle the physical work, “I drank the kool-aid,” he likes to say. So, Rob became the worker bee and started a few experimental plots. Growing organically with regenerative practices is important to Rocki. Rob followed his Queen Bee’s lead, working hard to be a certied organic operation from the beginning. When he gured something out on one section of the land, he would lose control of another. Next thing they knew, they had grown more food than they knew what to do with. They started vending at the Aberdeen Sunday Market and were sold out of vegetables in an hour. Subsequent weeks proved no dierent. Soon, they’d pull up to the market and a line had already formed at their stand. By the end of the season, everyone asked them to please come back next year and bring more! It was clear to Rob that he could not meet the demand of his community. He was just one farmer already working seven days a week. The farm had taken over his life with trays of seedlings lined up on his dining room table. “I want to be able to create a new local, food source system. My dream is to develop a convenient way to bring locally grown food to our communities, whether it's a local store front, home delivery, or drop o locations.” Rob’s energy matches the challenge of meeting the demands of his community. To meet this demand, he needed help. When it was time to harvest during the summer, Rob faced a labor shortage. His time harvesting in the eld created a backlog of paperwork in the oce. Organic certication requires many protocols and documentation. Rob wears many hats to keep his farm business buzzing. Balancing administrative duties and eldwork is challenging. Rob is continually faced with decisions that nd him stuck between a backlog of paperwork and crops that won’t wait for him.After ve years, he still does not make a paycheck for himself and struggles with nding a work-life balance for himself and his family. He receives much love from people he meets at the market, but it is the joy of giving back to his community that drives him forward. He encourages his employees to attend at least one market day a year to see the impact of their work on their local community. “When they come to the market, they become a customer, and see and feel what the customers feel. They can’t believe how popular we are and how beautiful the produce looks. The market is where the magic grabs them. It’s beautiful.” Rob and his crew recognize they aren’t just growing food but also growing community. Rob is committed to showing up with fresh, healthy, nutritious, and beautiful produce for his customers. “I will always be at the market.”2023 Fresh From The Farm GuideMarket Vendor SpotlightPhotos courtesy of Bee Organic Farm & ApiaryBee Organic Farm & ApiaryMarket Vendor Spotlightcommunityfarmlandtrust.orgSee farm listing #2.34

Grays Harbor County Farm SpotlightActive, healthy animals taste the best! That is why John Hagara, Kim Smith, and Amy Healy of Chehalis Valley Farms (CVF) are passionate about raising heritage pigs outdoors in the lush Chehalis River Valley outside of Elma, WA. CVF started by raising and selling chickens in 2012. Faced with a labor shortage to process their chickens, they paused the chicken operation and focused on raising pigs. By using rotational grazing in the forest, the pigs helped stabilize the land and clear the brush through their rooting practices. “As we got farther into it, we realized they were good for the land, helping to regenerate it. You can’t regenerate anything without causing a disturbance rst,” John explained. Regenerative practices balance the various aspects of utilizing the land, pig rotations, labor, how wet the land is, and more. In the winter when the land is wet and muddy, they keep the pigs dry, fed, and bedded because it is better for the land and the health of the pigs. “We try to t our groups of pigs to our landscape. So if we have bigger groups of feeder pigs in the forest, they can root up and t the ecosystem well. They tend to prefer the forest more than pasture,” Kim added. Having had pasture-raised chickens for eight years, the pastures are in really good shape, she explained. They now grow grass on them to feed a few cattle. “At the end of the day, it all comes back to growing grass,” John states. In the next couple of years, when the pigs have cleared the brush from the forest, a reseeding program to plant grass under the trees will allow pigs and cattle to graze on those areas. Chehalis Valley Farms Through the expansion of their farrow-to-nish program and their rst sow herd, fully raised Chehalis Valley pork will hit the market this January. The mission of CVF is to build a local food economy with their unique products being accessible to more people. Their focus is a direct farm-to-retail model. A full product line that includes beef from the cattle they raise is their vision. They take pride in their pork being full of avor and enriched with non-GMO, local grains that are soy and corn free. John states, “Our customers are our certication. If they’re happy, then we’re happy.” CVF has an on-site farm store. Partnerships with local farms are valued to expand the store’s product base for its consumers. “We are working with other local farms to get more products that have the same standards and values that we have,” says Kim. “The products compliment each other. Sometimes, it takes that initial purchase of chicken and then they decide to buy a pork chop. That is good for our customers and hopefully, it will help other local farmers as well,” John adds.Their pork plus local grass-fed beef and pasture-raised chicken are sold at their new farm store as well as other local products like OlyKraut, jam from Johnson Berry Farm, local honey, and other dry goods and spices that people like using to cook their meat. CVF products are also sold at local farmers markets. They plan to oer shipping within Washington State this year.2023 Fresh From The Farm Guidecommunityfarmlandtrust.orgPhotos courtesy of Chehalis Valley FarmsSee farm listing #4.Grays Harbor County Farm Spotlightchehalisvalleyfarm.com69 Taylor ferry rd, Elma, WA 98541 360-482-2517On-farm store open weeklypork • beef • chickenForest and Pasture RaisedQuality meats from local farms44

Green Gardens Farm and Consultation started in my prayers. I always wanted to be a homesteader or be a farmer, but I didn’t have the correct terminology or connections to communicate my dreams. Now when I look back, I see that I have been growing food in some way or another for most of my life. Two stories up in my rst apartment, I was growing food. Even when I had no idea where I was going, I knew I was being called to care for and help those around me, especially animals. At some point along the way, I realized that if I could grow food successfully without intention and in some very challenging situations and spaces, I could teach others how to grow their own food as well. That’s where the consultation idea for my business began. Today, I help people grow their own food whatever their situation, whether it is a small apartment or many acres, or it is to help with an existing backyard garden or becoming a market farmer. Our farm is no-till, no-spray, and intensively planted. We use local composts and encourage natural predators to combat pests. We try our hardest to maintain the soil food web. My husband and I focus on growing heirloom vegetables including over 80 varieties of heirloom tomatoes. Our main reason is to help steward the preservation of the heritage and history of the food that we all eat and grow. Heirlooms enhance our food systems that are often devoid of the multifaceted diversity that is so healthy. We believe we are stewards of our land, and we take it seriously. Change and growth are imperative. As farmers, we have to be exible with regards to how we work our land, even if it means changing all or some of the practices we hold dear. We are constantly learning and trying to improve on how to better serve our land and community. One need we see is for local farmers to sell year-round every day while being accessible to everyone, not just those who can shop at the farmers markets. We are in the process of opening a farmer “grocery store”. This storefront will oer local produce on shelves and in refrigerators in a way that consumers are accustomed to. It will be open year round and feature farmers in Lewis County and the surrounding area. We can’t wait for everyone to come out to support this dream when we nally set roots down in the perfect location. Meanwhile, look for me at one of our amazing farmers markets. I sell all types of edible-plant starts and tasty veggies – those that you know and love, and some you may have never seen or heard of before. In addition, Green Gardens Farm and Consultation sells homemade cedar Garden Hods (baskets) and planters. If you want to grow your own food and don't know where to start, give me a call. I am always around to help.

When talking with Andrew Hunter of Lynch Creek Dahlia Farm, one has to wonder who is cultivating whom? After growing dahlias for almost 25 years, Andrew radiates the same joy and excitement that comes from receiving one of his bouquets.Andrew has always loved growing zucchini, squash, and dahlias. His parents started a small hobby vegetable farm in 1980. In time they transitioned into growing more flowers. His mother expanded her love of flowers by opening a flower shop in Shelton in 1992. The farm grew many varieties that could be used for fresh and dried flower sales.After college, Andrew worked a few odd jobs including working in the restaurant industry before he decided that farm life made him the happiest. In 1998, he began managing operations on the family farm. Focusing on the flowers, he grew more dahlias, zinnias, and sunflowers for bouquets to sell at the Olympia Farmers Market four days a week. Wreaths became a focus around the same time. Andrew’s goal was to make the two enterprises profitable. By the early 2000’s, he began shipping dahlia tubers nationwide in spring and summer with the wreath business dominating the fall and winter.Wreaths are now the bulk of what they do. Andrew marvels, “We went from selling a couple hundred wreaths a year to now having hundreds of employees that rely on Lynch Creek Farm to employ them. It’s pretty special. 25 years ago I was looking for it to just support me.” It takes a team of experts to design, make, and ship the wreaths. 40 people make up the customer service team. The wreath business occupies a total of 300,000 square feet in Shelton and Satsop locations with 600 seasonal and full time staff. “The wreath season is a crazy time for us. It’s all about the employees. I am very fortunate to have amazing people. That’s what it takes.” When asked how the internet impacts his business, he says, “We sell pictures, that’s what the internet is. The hard part is making a product that looks better in person than the pictures look. That’s why 80% of our customers come back year after year.” His long range goal is sustainable growth that puts making beautiful products and growing his customer base at the heart of it all. “It’s easy to make one perfect wreath. It’s really hard to make 20,000 wreaths perfect everyday.” While dahlias were his first love, the time spent selling them at the farmers market was not sustainable for growing the business. In 2017, Andrew shifted his business model to a U-pick dahlia farm by moving from the family farm to a more visible spot off Lynch Road. It took 26 hours a day of work to sell at the farmers market four days a week. It now takes an hour and a half in the morning to prepare pre-made bouquets that can be purchased at their farm stand. The hours of labor to plant and maintain 14,000 bulbs for the growing season are covered by their flash tuber sale in late spring (follow their Facebook page for the announcement). With a U-pick farm, farm stand, and tuber sales, the dahlias are now a self-sustaining business. The setting at Lynch Creek Dahlia Farm is stunning. Grab your camera and bring the family for some one-of-a-kind shots with their antique tractors. Look for Andrew’s father’s old truck, the “Blue Goose,” for more fun photo opportunities. The truck was sold 30 years ago and came back to the family years later. The “Blue Goose” is featured on our cover this year in an artist rendering by Cheryl Wilson.Lynch Creek Dahlia FarmMason County Farm SpotlightMason County Farm Spotlight2023 Fresh From The Farm Guidecommunityfarmlandtrust.orgPhotos courtesy of Lynch Creek Dahlia FarmSee farm listing #31.Lynch Creek FarmU-PICK DAHLIA FIELD We will be open from early August to October while dahlias are inbloom.

Thurston County Farm SpotlightBy TJ JohnsonBefore Urban Futures Farm, there was the Wendell Berry Community Garden (WBCG). In 2009, we built the garden located in Olympia’s northeast neighborhood. Its goals were to build community, grow the most food we could using sustainable methods, and minimize our carbon footprint. WBCG diered from other community gardens in that no gardener had their own space. All of the land was worked communally, decisions were made through consensus among the gardeners, and short term production goals were balanced with an eye toward building soil health and long term sustainability. No equipment powered by fossil fuels has been used since its initial construction. Garden members were required to live within one mile of the garden, reducing our carbon footprint and allowing easy access on foot or bicycle. The garden became a neighborhood gathering space. It hosted workshops, classes and celebrations, while producing thousands of pounds of chemical-free produce for its members, the food bank, and Senior Services on less than 1/3 acre.When the owners of the property decided to sell the land in 2015, we jumped at the chance to purchase the full 3.75 acre parcel and accomplish our dream of transitioning the garden into a beautiful, productive farm in the heart of the city. Today, Urban Futures Farm is a highly diversied, regenerative urban farm oering plant starts in the spring, an 18-week CSA season, special orders, and a location for community education and celebration.We maintain our commitments to soil health and minimize our carbon footprint by practicing complex crop rotations, intensive cover cropping, and annual soil testing. Since 2018, our solar panels have produced 37 megawatts of electricity. We have only used 11 megawatts for our entire operation, meaning we are not just carbon neutral but carbon negative. Reducing electricity costs also helps our small farm be more economically viable. Our customers love the fact that when they purchase a CSA from us, they are also investing in clean energy. Most of our CSA customers live in the neighborhood and many pick up their weekly share at the farm on foot or bicycle, sometimes sending their children over to pick up the box.With support from the Thurston Conservation District, we became the rst farm in Thurston County to secure a county approved Individual Stewardship Plan (ISP). The plan allows us to maximize the use of our property while ensuring protection of the important wetland habitat that borders the farm. We are committed to educating our customers about the realities of regenerative farming, farm and food policy and politics, and the impacts of climate change through weekly newsletters, our farm blog, and social media. In addition, we support the next generation of farmers and eaters by hosting interns and WWOOFers (World Wide Workers on Organic Farms). Our annual summer FarmFest is a solar-powered music festival that gives people a chance to visit the farm for a weekend of amazing regional music while strengthening community connections. This year’s event will also benet the Community Farm Land Trust.A recent annual survey found over 90% of our CSA customers are satised or very satised with the quality, quantity, and diversity of their CSA boxes. 97% of our customers would recommend us to their family and friends, and almost 90% plan to sign up again this year. The essence of Urban Futures Farm is to build soil, minimize our carbon footprint, feed our neighborhood, and nurture community.Thurston County Farm Spotlight2023 Fresh From The Farm Guidecommunityfarmlandtrust.orgUrban Urban Futures Futures FarmFarmPhotos courtesy of Urban Futures FarmSee farm listing #92.58

Farm to Fork Spotlight - OlyKrautSash Sunday started OlyKraut, while a student in the Sustainable Agriculture program at Evergreen State College. Sash was a mechanic by day, and UPS loader by night. As her interests shifted towards personal and environmental health and wellness, the chemical exposure from being a mechanic drove her back to school. “This [work] was not in alignment with my values anymore,” she explained. Sash began farming in the summer and studied farming and food. “On the Evergreen Organic Farm, I grew everything to make and sell sauerkraut and kimchi. I had gotten fanatical about it and that was very much a part of my health journey.” She said that in 2007, “Evergreen was technically the rst place you could buy my sauerkraut.” The next year as part of her studies, she wrote the business plan for OlyKraut and launched it before she graduated with three other founders.Fermentation and probiotics through kraut and other fermented foods were still a “new/old” concept to people in 2007. Sash attributed some of the growth in popularity to Sandor Katz’ book, Wild Fermentation. “I do think that he had a lot to do with the reinvigoration of fermentation in the west, especially in the United States. In the beginning it was a harder sell. Now people head down to the Olympia Farmers Market to buy kraut because their doctor sent them down there.” The rst step was to do some grass roots product testing to determine what recipes would sell best in the local market. Then they obtained access to a commercial kitchen and were ready to start full-scale production. They still produce OlyKraut there today. The kindness of the kitchen owner helped OlyKraut get o the ground without any investment money. The Olympia Food Co-op was their rst ocial customer and now purchases approximately 10 cases a week. “They are still one of our best customers!” Sash exclaimed. They also sell their kraut at the Olympia Farmers Market. OlyKraut has seen exponential growth after signing with a few good distributors in 2014, the year that Sash became the full owner.Sash’s commitment to quality, local, and farm-fresh ingredients has been important since the dawn of OlyKraut. As the product line grew, the price of cabbage from very local farms became cost prohibitive. The increased need for consistent quantity led them to Dharma Ridge in Quilcene where they use an “aspirational, contract farming model”, in partnership with one of their distributors, the Organically Grown Company. They work collectively to help keep the cost of cabbage at a xed rate so both Dharma Ridge and OlyKraut can get the best deal, reduce waste, and plan for their respective businesses. “They have been great to work with over the years.” Sash is committed to the time it takes to source local produce, reduce food waste, and keep her business sustainable. She also works to close the loop in packaging output. Customers can return their OlyKraut jars to the Olympia Farmers Market. Even though they may spend more time washing and sanitizing the jars, it reduces the cost to OlyKraut. It also speaks loudly to her continued commitment to sustainability by addressing the responsibility of manufacturers with packaging. Sash says, “I don’t like putting food in plastic, buying food in single use plastic, and I don’t like actually eating food that has been sitting in plastic.” One of the newer items they oer are DIY kits like Kombucha, sourdough starter, water ker, milk ker, and cheese making kits. Visit them at the Olympia Farmers Market and try a sample before you buy! Don’t forget to bring your old OlyKraut jars.OlyKrautFarm to Fork Spotlightcommunityfarmlandtrust.org2023 Fresh From The Farm • fermented • deliciousPhotos courtesy of OlyKraut77

Sponsor Spotlight — Olympia Food Co-opOlympia Food Co-opSponsor Spotlight2023 Fresh From The Farm GuideBy Olympia Food Co-opThe Olympia Food Co-op is pleased to continue our support of the Community Farm Land Trust. Between 2012 and 2017 Thurston County experienced the 4th largest 4-yr decline of farmland acreage since 1950 and the largest decline since 1974. Farm acreage is often sought after by land developers due to the larger property sizes and more varied development options. The work of the Community Farm Land Trust to keep access to land aordable to farmers is so important. Farmland contributes to our local economy and once lost, is dicult to replace. The Olympia Food Co-op is celebrating our 45th year! We prioritize fresh, local, organic produce at our Eastside and Westside Olympia stores’ Produce and Deli departments. We love to support small farmers in our community! We also support community organizations and small businesses through sponsorships, donations, and round ups at our registers. We promote local collectives, participate in boycotts, host community classes, are committed to anti-oppression work, host a free store, as well as introduce local shoppers to our area farmers. The Fresh From the Farm Guide celebrates local farmers and community and we are proud to be included.CMYCMMYCYCMYKCoopAdFarmTrust2021-v2.pdf 1 12/3/21 1:39 PMPhoto courtesy of Olympia Food Co-opcommunityfarmlandtrust.org79
