OUR MISSION: LOYAL TO SOIL
We build soil to grow diverse crops, giving you delicious ways to heal your body and our whole earth from the ground up.
Here's how it works: Thriving microbiology in soil grows delicious, nutrient-dense plants, stores carbon underground in solid form, and cleans our air and water. So when you share Spoon Full Farm food with your loved ones, you thrive in good health, and so does the earth.
Our gardens, fields, and orchards mimic and augment ecosystems, in order to balance the resilient biodiversity of nature with the productive capacity to make a profit and feed everyone.
You can enjoy our produce, pasture-raised meat and eggs, honey, and farm-fresh ferments when you visit us at a market.

MEET “THE SPOONS”
Spoon Full Farm is a collaboration between several young humans and one llama, each of whom brings a unique skillset and personal mission. We come from places as far afield as southwest Georgia and Hong Kong, but share a common passion for healing the land and supplying delicious food.
Meet your Spoon Full Spoons, below:
After working 60-hour weeks, with 5 AM milkings, at a sheep dairy outside of Atlanta, Phoebe still felt a passion for farming - so she knew she had found her path. That path led her far north and far west, to an organic farm in Alaska’s Mantanuska Valley. Now she manages Spoon Full’s garden, here in the “south.” It’s all relative.
Ever since childhood in Colorado, Anna has loved to explore and embrace the unknown. In farming, of course, she found as many unknowns as anybody could want. “That’s what makes life fun!” says Anna - along with the furry, feathered, and four-legged friends whom she takes care of every day.
Sturdy, steady, studious, studly: Michael can learn how to do anything. He loves good beer. Here are some other things that he loves: maintaining farm equipment and landscapes, working with his hands (strong hands), and mastering puzzles. Oh, and llamas. He loves llamas.
Once upon a time, a young man named Mericos learned that nature grows all the solutions for happy, healthy human life. His job is to help grow food and culture that helps people and nature thrive together. He likes to tell stories about why this type of food is so important. He wrote this.
You ever meet one of those people whose whole life is like a work of art, or a harmonious song? If you've met Geoff, then yes, you have. He can tell you about Mozart's early years while spreading straw in the cattle barn to cover up every little piece of manure, because Geoff takes good, good care of things.
Just like ancestors in the Peruvian Andes, Finn the Llama carries a heavy responsibility upon his fuzzy shoulders. His job is to protect the farm animals from other critters, including roguish dogs. His other job is to sniff the face of every visitor who comes up close.
80 miles east of Seattle, the Cascade Mountains roll down into grassy hills and rugged canyons.
The Kittitas Valley is defined by the blowing west wind and the flowing Yakima River, both of which bless Spoon Full Farm with their abundant, pure energy. Out here, the sun shines most days and the cold, clean water raises green delicious plants out of the fertile soil. We love it. You will, too.
Spoon Full is usually open for visits (email firstname.lastname@example.org). We also offer guided group farm tours in the Summer and Fall.
