Our beautiful woodland farm is nestled in the rolling hills of Garden Valley, between Lake Ellen and the Columbia River in Northeast Washington's rural Ferry County. [Read our History of Rural Ferry County, WA: A County Without Traffic Lights.]
We're blessed with a sandy soil mix that works well for growing ponderosa pines (and other evergreens), maintaining pastures, and growing fruits and vegetables.
Our woodland farm is still in its early phases, but we have egg-producing chickens, with plans for additional animals as our farm grows.
We have several fruit trees (cherry, apple, peach, plum), and have established an annual medium-scale fruit and vegetable garden.

We have also completed a 20-year Forest Stewardship Plan, with help from a cost-share program with the Washington DNR, and are proud to also now be a Stewardship Forest.
