Farmer Spotlight: Yacolt Mountain Farm and Nursery

Prior to farming, Dan took care of game fields and golf course greens and saw all the chemicals that went into keeping them pristine. While it ate away at his conscience, he dreamed of a farm where him and his wife Caroline could build a family and grow fresh and nutritious food for the community.

That dream came true in 2011 and since then Yacolt Mountain Farm and Nursery, LLC has been pursuing their mission of a sustainable, organic farm producing certified organic vegetables, organic fed and free-range eggs, grass-fed and unweaned lamb, organic fed and pastured pork, nursery plants and more.

There are some very happy pigs on this farm! Watch them frolic through the long grasses.

Where in the world are they? Yacolt, Washington, USA

What in the world do they grow? Vegetables, eggs, lamb and pork.
