Organic Vegetable Starts

organic veggie startsWe grow over 100 varieties of organic vegetable and herb starts in our own custom blend potting soil. Our starts are hardy and vigorous and are available at appropriate planting times for our area (that means no tomato plants in early April!) We want you to succeed, so we choose varieties that are known to do well here in the PNW. Visit our vegetable starts page to see a partial list of what we offer.

Farmers Markets

Beets and carrotsWe’ll be at the Olympia & Proctor farmers market starting in March! Come get some beets, leeks, greens, and other spring treats. We’ll also have a great selection of early spring veggie starts!

At each of our markets we offer a wide variety of fresh produce, herbs, and strawberries as well as veggie and herb starts. You can also pick up your CSA share at our stall. Come see us!

Olympia Farmers Market Our stall is in the southeast wing of the market. Hours of operation are 10-3, Thursday through Sunday from April through October and on Saturdays and Sundays in November and December.

Tacoma Proctor Farmers Market We are there every Saturday from 9-2, March through December. We will also be there during the winter for their once-a-month Saturday Market.

Call or email the farm for availability or to place your order. Orders can be picked up at the Olympia Farmers Markets, at the farm, or at your CSA pick-up location. Go to our produce for canning and storage page and see what we have to offer.

Local & Sustainable Meat Sources

We can’t do it all so we are happy to put you in touch with those who do the things we can’t do. We have many great neighbors here in the valley and nearer to Olympia who do an amazing job raising animals in a respectful and conscientious manner. Please explore these links for local, sustainably raised meat. All of the sources listed are ones we know firsthand and trust.
