Flash! During the last week in May, 2014 the Bellingham Herald did a review of my two books and I was interviewd for the Joe Show, a local radio program from Bellingham. Here are the links to both the interview and the podcast of the Joe Show.



F.A. Farm - Ferndale

Sustainable, Local, Tasty

We are a small farm emphasizing sustainable and ethical practices. Nowadays, organic is simply not enough. It is also important to lower the carbon footprint in food production. We do this by managing the input/output ratio of how much energy we use to produce our food. We measure this in calories, an easy and valid method of measuring inputs and outputs. This allows us to compare ourselves to industrial agriculture. Currently we are 20-30 times more efficient. We utilize walk-behind tillers and hand labor rather than tractors. Other practices include onsite compost production, sheet mulching, crop rotation and soil-building cover crops.

The journey from farm to table should be a short one. When you can choose your food as we harvest it, your produce is truly, "Fresh, Absolutely!"

We grow over 60 different fruits and vegetables, including:
  • Apples
  • Pears
  • Raspberries
  • Tomatoes
  • Potatoes
  • Salad mixes
  • Carrots
  • Peas & beans
  • Beets
  • Squashes, winter & summer
  • Cardoon
  • Artichokes
  • Garlic
  • Leeks
