We grow more than 50 different vegetables and fruit, raise laying hens on pasture, and manage a few bee hives.
Skylight Farms, situated on the banks of the beautiful Snohomish River, is entering its fifth season. What began as a quest to do something meaningful has turned into a passion for growing the kind of food that should be on every table: sustainable, ecological, and ethical.
As we experience the trials and tribulations of producing high quality and delicious food, we have come to realize that there's nothing more empowering and humbling than growing your own food. We are proud to grow food with a commitment to preserving the natural environment and enhancing our community. We enjoy filling the plates of our farmers market shoppers, high end restaurants, social service clients, children in afterschool programs, corporate dining rooms and everything in between.
On our 20 acres, we use about 5 acres to grow more than 50 varieties of vegetables and fruit, raise laying hens on pasture, and manage a few bee hives.
Farming practices: We believe that successful farming is the result of using good practices, taking care of the earth, favorable weather conditions, and a having a little bit of good luck. Our goal is to have a minimal impact on the land and to leave it in a better condition than we found it.
So what does that mean?
We build the health of our soil naturally by planting cover crops, using compost and crop rotation, and letting it rest. We manage pests and disease by using ecological practices, favoring fabric row cover over sprays, and have made our peace with the fact that we cannot escape their impact on our production during any given season. We never use chemical sprays and only plant non-GMO seeds. Our animals have the space they need to eat, live, and play in our open pastures.
