Location: Snohomish
Date Protected: 2023
Acres: 207

Current Farmer:

Bob’s Corn and Pumpkin Farm is a 207-acre 5th generation farm in Snohomish County. Under continuous ownership and production by the Ricci family since 1888, it was operated as a dairy until 2001. The current generation of Riccis are raising their five children there and plan to farm for generations to come.

Conservation Values:

The farm borders the Snohomish River, which is priority migration and breeding habitat for Chinook and Coho Salmon, as well as Cutthroat, Chum, and Bull Trout. The conservation easement will protect the property as working farmland and allow for compatible habitat restoration without compromising the agricultural viability of the farm.

Farm Products:

Though the farm is a historic dairy, the operation currently produces sweet corn, pumpkins and squash, honey, hay, and a variety of fruit from their orchard. In addition, Bob’s Corn & Pumpkin Farm is also a beloved agritourism destination, offering a corn maze, u-pick pumpkin patch, bonfire pits, picnic areas, school tours and more.
