About Us

Oxbow Farm & Conservation Center inspires people to eat healthy, sustainably grown food and to steward our natural resources for future generations.

Oxbow Farm & Conservation Center is a nonprofit organization located on 240 acres of forest and farmland bordering the Snoqualmie River in Carnation, Washington. Oxbow researches and practices sustainable farming methods, grows food and native plants, and educates people of all ages about agriculture and the environment. Collectively, Oxbow’s work takes real-time action to combat climate change, promote biodiversity, and encourage healthy food systems.

Oxbow connects to the public through our Farm Stand, events, educational programs, volunteer opportunities, and a Farm Share (CSA) program.

Growing & Operating Practices

We cultivate a variety of different crops well-suited to the Snoqualmie Valley floodplain, and maintain a crop rotation to allow our soil to recover and regenerate. We also strategically remove fields from our production each year and leave them fallowed in cover crop. Fallowed fields protect our watershed and allow fields to rest and build up nutrients, and manage weeds, pests, and diseases.

Our fertility management plan is customized to the deficiencies of specific fields and each plant family’s cultural needs using only certified organic, naturally occurring nutrients. We manage our pest populations with an intricate biological approach, incorporating Integrated Pest Management (IPM) practices such as beneficial insect release and insectary habitat plantings. Certified Organic and Certified Salmon-Safe.
