Delta Farm

Location: Dungeness, WA
Date Protected: 2000
Acres: 97

Current Farmer:

Nash Huber has been farming the Delta Farm for decades. The farm is the keystone property of Nash’s Organic Produce, the business he operates with Patty McManus. Both are steadfast supporters of farmland preservation. In 2008, Huber was nationally recognized as American Farmland Trust’s Steward of the Land, and was also one of the first organic farmers in Washington State.

Project Background:

Delta Farm was the first farm to be protected by the first donors of our organization, known then as the PCC Farmland Fund. In 1999, Nash Huber approached PCC Community Markets with the news that the farm adjacent to his own was in immediate danger of being sold and developed into small housing parcels. PCC rose to Nash’s challenge to help, and thus our organization, a separate 501(c)(3) nonprofit, was born. Because of Sequim’s unique climate and outstanding soils, farmland in the Dungeness Valley is among the most valuable in the world.

Property Description:

The Delta Farm is located in the fertile Dungeness Delta. The land drains into the Lower Dungeness River, home to six salmon species, and hosts the source of Meadowbrook Creek. 23 acres of the Delta Farm are set aside for wildlife habitat, which is owned and managed by the WA Department of Fish & Wildlife. Delta Farm is certified Salmon Safe.

Farm Products:

Nash’s Organic Produce grows a wide variety of vegetables, root crops, grains and more.  But Nash’s most beloved crop may be his famous carrots, some of the tastiest carrots in the world-due to the high mineral content of the soil and the unique microclimate of the Dungeness.

CSA Program info:

Nash and his team are able to produce food year-round, due to their unique microclimate.  Nash’s offers both summer and winter CSA Programs, available for purchase on their website.
