We’re a team of farmers with varying degrees of experience in organic farming, permaculture, gardening, business, and the arts.
We serve as stewards of the land, grow nutritious food, foster learning, and embrace the inherent life of the farm.
We’re located in the heart of San Juan Island, surrounded by the iconic Salish Sea midway between Canada’s Vancouver Island and America’s mainland.
Up and Running Again
Our farm was once a dairy operation in the early 1900s, started by the Schull family. In the mid-century it became Glad Acres with a communal living setting. The Moon and Sixpence Bed and Breakfast opened on this site in the 1980s, and shortly after the start of the 21st century, the property became a farm again, following biointensive practices.
In 2017 the property changed hands yet again, and now we’ve built our team and developed our vision. 2018 will be a year of experimentation and exploration with a wide array of veggies, herbs, and fruits. We also have laying chickens. With an eye toward the future, we’ve begun to plant more fruit and nut trees.
We’re passionate about food, learning, and life. We hope to offer a variety of workshops and other events on our farm, so please stay tuned for our calendar of happenings.
You can join our mailing list, send us an email, stop by our farm store, or visit us at the San Juan Island Farmer’s Market.
