Northbourne Farm

We are a family farm on Vashon Island growing food according to organic principles.

1.5 cultivated acres of vegetables, fruit, eggs and u-pick flowers, Northbourne Farm started in the fall of 2016 with the purchase of Hogsback Farm from Amy and Joseph Bogaard, long-time farmers on Vashon Island. We are deeply grateful to everyone who put care and hard work into making Hogsback Farm what it was, and excited to build on that history.  

We had great seasons in 2017, 2018 with a diverse set of crops including salad greens, head lettuce, carrots, beets, radishes, tomatoes, onions, garlic, leeks, potatoes, kale, chard, herbs, orchard fruit, berries, and eggs. This season is underway and we have over 15 different crops going including garlic, onions, tomatoes, salad greens and cabbage!
