Our 6.5 acre farm in Kitsap County includes a little less than 2 cultivated acres, a yurt meadow, barn, packing shed, wooded area, open fields and habitat for birds and other wildlife. Biodiversity is key to our success. We provide our customers with a wide array of vegetables and flowers while maintaining a balanced ecosystem in our gardens.
Farmer Rebecca Slattery uses careful crop rotations, homemade compost, cover crops, beneficial insectaries and patient observation to avoid synthetic pesticides and chemical fertilizers. Though not certified organic, our practices are stricter than the national organic standards. Deep ecology, closed loop systems and sustainability are our aims—“moreganic.”
Persephone Farm has been a pioneer in the Community Supported Agriculture movement—we started with 11 subscribers in 1991, making us one of the longest-running programs in the country. From the first week of June through the end of October, subscribers receive an armload of fresh-picked seasonal vegetables, herbs and flowers from our farm. Learn more about our CSA.
No traditional florist can match the just-picked quality of seasonal blossoms straight from the garden. We grow many dozens of varieties of annuals, perennials, herbs, bulbs, shrubs, ornamental grasses and unusual specialty materials using organic practices on our farm in Indianola.
