Farmer Frog has a long-term lease from Snohomish County on 30 acres of land on Paradise Lake Road in Woodinville, Washington. The site lies in the Paradise Valley Conservation Area and is located on the historical farm of the Lloyd family, who homesteaded the land in 1867. Here, we are developing Paradise Farm, a headquarters for our organization.
In addition to growing produce and keeping livestock on the farm, our goal is to create an education center where we can demonstrate and teach sustainable, innovative, and intensive food-producing and ecosystem-friendly land management.
We plan to construct an agricultural heritage display, which will demonstrate the history of food production not only after the settlers built farms but prior to the arrival of Europeans, showcasing how Native Americans utilized the land.
We need you
One of the first farms in our state, the site needs lots of work. The buildings need repairs, growing areas need to be designed and built, the wetland and the forested areas need restoration, and trails need to be rebuilt and added onto. A lot needs to be done, but the potential is tremendous.
We hold work parties at Paradise Farm to clean up the site and prepare for growing crops. Scheduled work parties are on our work party calendar.
New volunteers, please let us know if you are interested in helping at Paradise Farm. Existing volunteers, please check the work party calendar for dates.
