Our mission is based on three principles: Land, Education and Community. This approach informs all of the decisions we make regarding the current and future use of these fifteen acres we call home.
* *Our family acknowledges that we are living on stolen land which once belonged to the Twana/Skokomish, Coast Salish, S’Klallam and Suquamish Tribes. This acknowledgment serves as a means for us to bear witness to the ways in which colonialism has hugely and negatively impacted these communities and traditional ways of life. **
We have nearly two acres in cultivation for cut flowers and produce. Seven acres of our woodland is the future home of Magnolia Forest Preschool starting in fall 2021: https://magnoliaforestpreschool.com.
Please visit our website to sign up for our weekly newsletter which goes out every Thursday morning. This is an ongoing conversation with our community about issues that matter to our family including issues of social justice. In this newsletter, there is also information on our cut flower CSA, U-pick flowers and on our produce offerings.
Soil enhancement, no-till techniques, carbon sequestration, permaculture practices, woodland management and wildlife habitat conservation are deeply woven into our approach to this land. We are committed to serving as compassionate stewards, honoring this place we call home and that we share with so many others.
Seasonal workshops, classes and events made accessible to our community and held here at our farm. All workshops and classes are on a sliding scale or pay-what-you-can. (All workshops and classes for 2020 cancelled due to COVID-19. Sign-up for our e-newsletter for information on 2021 events.)
Our barn farmstand is open every Saturday April through September. Our produce and cut flower availability is announced each Thursday in our e-newsletter which is also when our online farm store opens. Orders placed on Thursdays, April through September, are picked up at our barn farm stand, 9 am – 3 pm, or delivered within a specific radius in Kitsap County for an additional fee. All details are available at our website.
Our farming practices are steeped in regenerative agriculture and permaculture. We utilize no-till and carbon sequestration methods in every facet of our work here. We have large, demonstration hugelkultur beds and a beautiful - young - food forest where we are growing a wide array of fruit and nut trees as well as unique cane fruit and berries.
