What started as an accidental CSA has turned into several acres of orchard and the reality of living your farmer's dream of owning and running his own farm.
By learning from folks much wiser than us and through trial and error, we are learning to embrace our Alaska climate instead of fighting it. Our passion is twofold. First, we LOVE having families join us on the farm for u-pick days. Second, we love helping our neighbors grow amazing food right in their own backyard so we have a small nursery of plants for sale.
WHAT WE GROW
Currently we have honeyberries (haskaps), currants, saskatoon berries, cherries (bush cherries and traditional cherry trees) and apples in the orchard. We also grow seasonal produce including strawberries and cantaloupe.
Meet the Team
Currently a three-Alaskan team, we are working hard to share the fruits of our labor.
