About SKY ISLAND FARM

Knowledge is Power

We are a 15 acre vegetable and flower farm located on the Olympic Peninsula in Washington state.  We currently run a 300 member Market-style CSA with home delivery, wholesale to Restaurants and stores.  We also give back through our food banks Farm to Food Pantry Grants and donate any excess produce we have.  At the farm we grow a wide variety of vegetables, flowers and some fruit.  We have been farming in Grays Harbor County for 7 years and have a combined 30 years farming, gardening and homesteading experience.  We grow intensively on 3 acres using organic and regenerative farming methods.  


We saw a need for training for a successful operation that feeds a lot of people and turns a profit especially for the BIPOC community.  To want to farm is one thing but to know how to become a successful famer that can make a great living just from the farm is another!  And we want to help create a generation of farmers that can do just that.   Throughout the week you will learn the ins and outs of a successful vegetable farm by digging in and getting your hands dirty.  This will also be a great opportunity to see if farm life is for you.  


We’re committed to encouraging students to continuously  grow and learn. Our curriculum reflects this commitment, as well as the diverse backgrounds and cultures of our instructors and participants alike.
