When we first began searching for a place to establish our farm in 2011, we stumbled across Puget Island almost by accident. Though less than an hour and a half away from Portland, and accessible by ferry from Westport, we found even many native Oregonians had not heard of this hidden jewel. No matter where we looked, no other spot measured up to what we found here and in the surrounding Wahkiakum County area, so we decided to put down roots. We encourage you to come visit and discover for yourself our tight-knit community of amazing people growing organically-raised fruits, vegetables, and flowers; offering grass-fed meat and eggs from pasture-raised hens; crafting artisanal cheese from farmstead goats; and brewing delicious beer using ingredients grown by local farmers. While there are plenty of great things to do and places to stay in Wahkiakum County, we highly recommend supporting our community of friends... though we warn you, you may not want to leave!
