Island Harvest Farm

00002_Tracie_Howe_Photography00028_Tracie_Howe_Photography

The days are getting sunnier and longer! The propagation house is bursting at the seems with flats and we are transplanting as fast as possible! Spring is definitely here!!
The farm stand is currently open! In the early spring, the farm stand will be open as I have produce available to harvest. Keep an eye on the farm stand page of this website or follow me on Instagram @islandharvestfarm or Facebook for updates when the stand is open.

I am not certified organic, but I use only non-GMO seeds and do not apply any synthetic chemicals to my plants or soil. I focus on building soil health to support happy, healthy plants.

I feel fortunate to live and farm on Camano Island! My goal is to provide an option for fresh, seasonal and flavorful produce! Thank you to everyone who has supported my farming adventure!

    Rachel, your farm is ridiculously fantastic and I notice your produces holds in my fridge so much longer than anything from the grocery store! That says something about the “freshness” or lack thereof from the retail markets, eh? I am in love with everything we’ve gotten–from baby beets to broccoli. I have no words for your parsley except YUM. The organic difference is EVERTYTHING. YAY–Stephanie

    We just bought a house on Camano Island last month and feel so lucky to live close to Island Harvest Farm, we have purchased from your stand a number of times, eat your veggies every day and absolutely love it. Today I went to the grocery store and completely ignored the produce section because I am content with what we have from your farm! Keep up the good work and my family thanks you for bringing healthful organic food to our neighborhood!

      Hi Meg!
      My farm stand is at 825 Arrowhead Rd. Just up the road from the community center and utsalady elementary school. The weather has everything a little behind this season, but I should open sometime in the first couple weeks of May.
      Thanks!
      Rachel

    Veggies are off to a good start! Love everything we get. Will you have spinach or am I getting there too late? Keep up the good work, love having good produce tight here.

    Hi there. It’s Bonnie down the road. We are missing your arugula a lot but totally understand you’ve got to move on to other things. But…I’m getting ready to plant some of my veg garden this week and I was wondering if you could tell me the variety of arugula you’ve grown so I can find some seeds. I know it’s kinda silly to be so enthralled by arugula, but it really is the BEST I’ve ever had by a long shot. Thanks in advance!

      I will grow more in the fall! I used organic arugula seed from Johnnys. Seed packet just says arugula, so no special variety name. I’m so glad you liked it!!
