At First Light Farm, we continually strive to educate ourselves and our customers (whether CSA, u-pick, mini farmers, or the public in general) about our interdependence with the natural world and our ever-increasing need to care for and protect this vital relationship between healthy soils and the well-being of our own bodies and the ecosystems (communities) we live in.

We live out our mission of healthy soils = healthy families = healthy communities through our educational programs that we teach, our commitment to caring for the soil we farm through no-till/minimum tillage, applying sustainable best practices, and caring for and respecting our staff and customers through fair wages, transparent business practices, and excellent customer service. Although our mission remains the same, our ability and practices change as we evolve in our knowledge of how to live and farm sustainably and interdependently. We journey together.

Farm Practices

As a low-till/no-till farm, First Light Farm's first commitment is to the health of the soil. Because we understand that healthy plants grow best from healthy soil, we use compost and green manure from cover crops to regenerate our soil. We use broadforking to lift the soil and use hand tools as much as possible. We partner with the ecosystem we share knowing that as we study and learn from the natural world that our farming practices will become more resilient and sustainable.

CSA

We serve two local communities: the families in the Snoqualmie Valley and the Seattle neighborhoods of Greenwood and Phinney (where we live).
