About Us
Good food grown on preserved land is better for everyone.
As farmland preservation farmers, we grow vegetables and raise livestock on 60 acres of land at the Scatter Creek Farm and Conservancy in Rochester.
We left the Tumwater land we farmed for 20 years in 2013 to be the anchor farmers in a project that preserves 150 acres of beautiful agricultural land and river habitat.
Growing food on preserved land is so much more than we ever imagined.
As soon as we were settled, we saw the pieces fall into place:
We have peace of mind. The land we farm can never be sold out from under us.
We are invested. We purchased our house, the milking parlor, and several other buildings on the property, making us full land preservation partners.
We work in community. Our partners in the land trust and the local conservancy work together with us to ensure that the land is healthy and that farming and conservation practices work in harmony.
