Why is our farm a great match for you?

It’s Fresh! Our produce is grown in season and harvested at its best. Join our CSA and sample more than 120 varieties of local produce, seeded, tended and harvested just for you.

It’s Local. Our farm sells directly to you. The produce is picked fresh, several times per week. And it’s less than 100 miles from our farm to your table.

We Care. We maintain healthy soils, rotate crops, and leave ground fallow to rest the soil. Our farm includes undisturbed areas for wildlife to thrive. We have Salmon Safe certification, and are working with local organizations to conserve riverbank at the farm. We also take care of our employees and ourselves, with fair wages and great produce!

We’re All Yours! We are available all season long to answer questions and provide tips. Plus, we host annual events: a Strawberry Festival in late June, and a Barn Stomp in September. You can visit the farm & see for yourself where your food grows.

Boistfort Valley Farm … Because life’s too short to eat iceberg lettuce.

We are conservation breeders of Navajo-Churro Sheep to preserve this heritage breed. I use them for the purposes they were used for when they were brought to the Western Hemisphere in the 1600’s, wool and meat. We strive to be gentle on the land using rotational grazing. This breed is on the Slow Food Ark of Taste, for all you foodies out there!

Occasionally weavings like rugs, hangings or fabric are offered. Yarn products offered at the annual Olympia Weaver’s Guild Sale during the first weekend in December.

We also offer a full range of web based services, including data base websites like sales sites or animal registries and hosting.

Three generations of our family are involved in raising dairy sheep and making farmstead and artisan cheese on our farm in Southwest Washington State. We have a passion for blue sheep and cow milk cheese and our emerging family of cheeses reflect our love of blue! Together we are sharing the joys and the challenges of life on a family farm.

We Are Singing the Blues

Inside our century old barn on the banks of the Chehalis River you will find a flurry of activity from sunrise to sunset. Many years of hard work has turned our historic gambrel barn into a fully functioning single 24 milk parlor and state-of-the-art creamery.

A Rare Flock Indeed

Twice a day for much of the year our flock of 140 (and growing) Lacaune-East Friesian cross ewes amble freshest and creamiest milk you can imagine for use in our handcrafted cheeses.

Where Natural Means Natural

Our sheep are raised on pasture without exposure to pesticides, commercial fertilizers or growth hormones.

Our feed is free of animal byproducts and our grass hay is locally grown and nourished by the 70+ inches of rainfall that keeps the eastern edge of the Willapa Hills lush and green. The cow milk for our cheeses comes from a local family cow dairy that shares our commitment to fresh and natural milk.

Quality Milk Equals Quality Cheese

It goes without saying that quality milk is the essence of quality cheese. As Farmstead producers, we are committed to producing both!

Terralumina Gardens is a 5 acre family farm located 
outside of Toledo Washington just off I-5.
We do most everything by hand (no tractors) and consider 
ourselves extreme gardeners rather than “farmers.” 
We farm as a family, currently no interns
or employees.

Read More About Terralumina Gardens

Using Biointensive planting practices we are able to 
produce on 5 acres what would take conventional farmers 
25-35 acres to produce, and the practices we use build 
and nurture the soil creating sustainability for the farm.

We love farming, and are passionate about open 
pollinated and heirloom crops. We only grow Open 
Pollinated crops on the farm (No Hybrids).

We felt called to farming in 2006, and left our beloved 
Seattle for the country as we felt it was the best 
environment for raising our children, and deeply
desired an intimate connection with our food and nature.
We have never regretted this decision.

We are foodies. We love to cook, and have eaten 
better, healthier, and with the highest quality ingredients, 
since deciding to farm.

We grow food like a fine dining chef creates their 
masterpieces; with heart, passion, and flavor in mind.

We are sharing our produce with chefs
and individuals in our bioregion through
 Olympia Farmers Market,
 our CSA, and delivery.
