The Art

Growing Art All Over The Pacific Northwest!

What in the world does farming have to do with art?! We hear that a lot... Actually, growers are artists in their own right. People don't always realize how much creativity and heart go into a garden. Or gardens go even a step beyond the normal amount of artistic investment. Flowers and vegetables are clustered together in order to provide aesthetic balance. Our customer deliveries are arranged using the most beautiful materials and produce. Our fields and products become sculpture for our growers and consumers to enjoy.

Once the new farm is up and running we will re-open our artist sponsorship program. In previous years we have selected local artists who we believe represent the values and style of the Art Farm. These artists received beautiful Art Farm fruits and veggies in exchange for their new works. Our goal is to extend this program to include full sponsorship of up to five artists a season. We will host them on the farm and provide a venue through which they can sell their art. They will have an opportunity to create, teach and grow without being distracted by external energy drains (read: rent or groceries). This program is targeted for spring 2006.
