Project Background:

Haven Creek Farm was conserved in 2015 with support from Pierce County’s Conservation Futures program and the Natural Resources Conservation Service.

Property Description:

Haven Creek Farm is situated in the center of the Puyallup Valley, between the Puyallup River and Horsehaven Creek. Thanks to the floodplain processes of the adjacent Puyallup River, the property has excellent farmland soils which support high quality pasture and hay fields. In addition, the farm features abundant wildlife habitat areas, including duck ponds, wetlands, and the riparian buffers along the salmon-bearing Horsehaven Creek.

Farm Products:

The farm currently produces hay for the local community, and owners plan to introduce sheep and other livestock in coming years.
