Ask any of our farmers why local farming matters and you’ll probably hear similar themes. “Caring for the land”. “Better, more healthful produce”. “Connection”. You’ll also hear about supporting local.
“We are firm believers in the local economy and its power to change the world”. For the Steege-Jackson family, owners of Around the Table Farm in Poulsbo, this is what it’s all about.
The Steege-Jacksons are active in the local agriculture community, internship programs, and helping grow the next generation of farmers. They’ve been farming their 5.5 acre Poulsbo farm since winter solstice of 2010. They utilize draft animals to work the soil to grow a wide range vegetable, flowers and eggs.
Just take a look at their offerings and you can see the dedication and love shine through. Yes, I’ll buy that.
