About Us
Jana Harris and Mark Bothwell have owned our 20 acre farm in the Cascade foothills for three decades. We are located on the south-facing slope of the Skykomish River valley, safely above the flood-plain, hence our name.
Our farming practices combine the scientific sensibility of Mark, a PhD molecular biologist, with the spiritual sensibility of Jana, an extensively published poet. We employ natural and low-till methods that sustain healthy soil biology, while avoiding any use of herbicides, fungicides, pesticides, or synthetic chemical fertilizers, keeping in mind that even OMRI listed pesticides and fungicides used by some Certified Organic farms kill beneficial microbes, fungi, and insects. Calling our approach sustainable tells only half the story, because our soil has become richer and more productive year-by-year, for over 30 years. Healthy soil produces vibrantly flavored and nutrient-rich vegetables and fruit.
