About Us
Forest Garden Farm is a diverse vegetable, herb, fruit, cut flower, egg and forest product farm on the north end of Vashon Island which is certified organic by the WSDA. On our family owned and operated farm, we strive to build sustainable systems by working with nature to improve the health of our soil, farm and surrounding ecosystems and to grow fresh, local, rare, and delicious food and flowers. From Fuki, a Japanese vegetable planted by the Fujioka family who farmed the same land for most of the last century, to microgreens; from nasturtiums and anemones to blueberries and tomatoes; we are growing a colorful mix of products for our community.
Practices
