The Haakenson family have spent more than 20 seasons on the farm, running one of the area’s oldest and most comprehensive Community Supported Agriculture subscriptions. Erick and Wendy’s son David Haakenson is now also farming on the property.
About half of Jubilee Farm had previously been conserved by the King County Farmland Preservation Program. When there was an opportunity to partner with King County to preserve the remaining half through the County’s Transfer of Development Rights Program, Washington Farmland Trust jumped at the chance.
Jubilee Farm is a biodynamic farm in the heart of the Snoqualmie Valley, and is certified Salmon Safe.
The Haakensons grow greens, squash, cucumbers, tomatoes, peas, beans, raspberries, artichokes, broccoli, cauliflower, strawberries, cabbage, watermelons, peppers, potatoes, onions, cantaloupes, basil, kohlrabi, corn, leeks, fennel, carrots, garlic, beets, radishes, cilantro, turnips, winter squashes, and more!
