SIGN UP NOW FOR OUR 2017 CSA! We are planning another season of delicious healthy food! Details on our CSA page, or go straight to the sign up.
We will also continue to sell produce at the Bayview Farmers Market in 2017. Opening day is Saturday, April 29.
2017 marks the 6th season of production at SkyRoot Farm! We are excited to continue to build on projects we started last year, including raising pastured poultry and training new farmers by hiring interns through the Washington State Farm Internship Pilot Project. The first crops in the beautiful huge hoophouse we built last year are carrots and cilantro, with salad greens and then tomatoes on the not-too-distant horizon.
We are planning to improve our farm efficiency and produce quality by building a new wash station and walk-in cooler, with some funding coming from the crowd-funding campaign we are creating for the second half of February — be on the lookout for more information soon!
Our farm practices are based on an ecosystem approach to land management and agriculture. Although veggies are our main product we are working hard to integrate animals into the farm: our goats help us push back the walls of blackberry to reclaim old fences, our ducks help control the slug population, and our poultry is part of our soil-building and weed control rotation. We strive to build our soil so that it can support healthy crops and a successful business.
