Carnation, WA, saved 2012
Jubilee Farm is a biodynamic farm in the heart of the Snoqualmie Valley. Erick and Wendy Haakenson have spent 17 seasons on the farm, running one of the area’s oldest and most comprehensive CSA (Community Supported Agriculture) subscriptions. The Haakensons grow greens, squash, cucumbers, tomatoes, peas, beans, raspberries, artichokes, broccoli, cauliflower, strawberries, cabbage, watermelons, peppers, potatoes, onions, cantaloupes, basil, kohlrabi, corn, leeks, fennel, carrots, garlic, beets, radishes, cilantro, turnips, winter squashes, and more!
About half of Jubilee Farm previously had been conserved by the King County Farmland Preservation Program. When there was an opportunity to partner with King County to preserve the remaining half through the County’s Transfer of Development Rights Program, PCC Farmland Trust jumped at the chance.
Now, thanks to the vision of the Haakensons and the combined resources of King County and the Farmland Trust, the entirety of this much-loved biodynamic farm will remain farmland forever. Watch Erick and Wendy Haakenson discuss the “Growing Revolution” below:
