Welcome to the Rural World!
*** Christmas trees and hay - that is what we are up to now.
Call 425-246 -5249 if you are interested in local hay. ***
Fall City Farms has closed its gates to the retail vegetable and pumpkin store and fields, and to the picnic area. The main farm is closed to the public. We continue to sell U-cut Christmas trees at our 3309 Fall City/Carnation Road lot. Find that on the Directions page.
We are healthy and happy and looking forward to new endeavors and experiences. The farm is located in a flood plain and, if you have read the "Flood Stories" and seen some of the pictures, you know what that has done for us! We have experienced losses and had the unsettling illustration of why our fields, in the path of the overflowing river, should be grass fields, not row crops. That, along with having grown row crops for 21 years, having no summer or autumn breaks for the same, and yes, we are getting older, has convinced us that we need to change our farming focus. We have family that want to see more of us, on the east coast, in the southwest, and in the northwest. What better draw to seeing more of our country?
For your pumpkins and vegetables, give Oxbow Farms a try - a little like us, but different.
So, what are we doing with our time?
Grand Central Bakery has been a loyal supporter of ours for many years now. They have used our vegetables in their soups, tarts, breads, sandwiches. We continue to grow for them. You can continue to support us by having a bite at Grand Central Bakery! And, thank them for supporting local farmers.
We are growing hay. Many of you will recognize this as our pumpkin and squash patch. This is the first year in 22 years that
it has not had pumpkins planted in it. Good for the tilth of this field. As you can see, our dear old dog, Matia, (age 14), is still hunting and continues to be the queen of the farm. Our hay feeds our goats, cattle and donkey. They, in turn, (in their own special way), are "feeding" the fields back to fertility and a balanced healthy soil.
Christmas trees! BIG TREES and . . .
