Supporting Local Agriculture

Since 1996, we have worked with our community to protect roughly 2,300 acres of irrigated farmland and another 3,000 acres of working rangeland through a combination of conservation easements and land ownership. This work is foundational to the future of agriculture in the Methow Valley. However, we know that protecting farmland form development is simply not enough to ensure a vibrant, viable future for the Methow Valley’s farmers and ranchers. So, we created Methow Grown to help deepen community connection to the local agricultural landscape.

Methow Grown Farm Directory and Print Guide

This is a directory of all the wonderful farms serving our Valley. Peruse the interactive online directory (or pick up a print guide at our office) to learn about the farmer next door, what they’re producing, and where to find it. You’ll be amazed by the rich diversity of products grown in the Methow Valley: meats, eggs, honey, grains, vegetables, fruits, milk, cheeses, and value-added products! Each farm listing offers a glimpse of what a farm has to offer, and a window into their unique story. Click here to view the online directory.

Farm Tours and Podcasts

We offer in-person farm tours seasonally, which are a great way to meet local farmers and learn about their unique connection to the land in the Methow Valley. Check out our events page to see if there’s a tour coming up. In the meantime, we have a collection of podcast interviews and virtual farm tour videos available to whet your appetite—click here to dive into our farm media catalog.

Farmland Leases

We currently lease several hundred acres of farmland, used by local farmers and ranchers for growing and grazing. When other farmland leases come available on land we own or hold conservation easements on, we will post those opportunities here, as well as in other media sources.

Inspiring people to care for the land of the Methow Valley since 1996.
