Who We Are & How We Grow
Since 1989, Mike & Kim Finger, and a hardy band of young helpers, have been tilling sandy loam soils adjacent to the Nooksack River, just west of Deming, Washington. Our harvest season begins in May and continues into December. We grow a wide variety of vegetables, herbs, and, sometimes, flowers, along with a flock of laying hens, and several batches of broiler chickens and a Thanksgiving turkey flock.
We market our crops through our Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) program, at the Bellingham Farmers’ Market, the Community Food Coop, and wholesale through the Puget Sound Food Hub. Much of what we grow is sold within Whatcom and Skagit Counties. We love farming for our friends and neighbors!
We grow all our crops organically, and have been certified organic since the early 1980s. We believe in the soil as the medium best suited to grow healthy food and our humbled by its complexity that supports not just our farm, but much of other life we all value and depend upon.
We cultivate our fields with our hands, hoes, small but resolute tractors, and a stubborn resolve. We spread compost and plant cover crops to enhance soil fertility and to stimulate plant health. Crops are rotated each season to discourage the build up of plant diseases and maintain a balanced soil. We are constantly searching for varieties adapted to our unique soils and climate. We invite you to visit the garden and see for yourself how we grow your food. Your trust in our work is our most valuable asset.
