During these uncertain times, how can we help?

Oxbow’s mission is to EDUCATE people on the importance of environmental stewardship and healthy food, to RECONNECT us to the land and our local sustainable food supply, and to INSPIRE us to take action in our daily lives and in our communities.
Oxbow is a 25 acre organic farm, education center, and native plant nursery located on a 100-acre wilderness preserve in the Snoqualmie Valley, 25 miles east of Seattle. The farm supports a 400+ member CSA, sells at 2 farmers markets, and supplies over 30 restaurants and 3 grocery stores with local, organic produce. Our education center, which has a working small farm and a Living Playground, is committed to teaching young children about sustainable agriculture and the environment. At Oxbow, children see firsthand where their food comes from, where salmon spawn, and understand why we need to protect both. We also actively work to restore the native habitat and vegetation around our fields and along our river banks. And new this year is a native plant nursery managed in conjunction with the University of Idaho.
