Forget Me Not Farms began as a garden in 1997 with the idea of starting a flower farm for supplemental income. The original garden was about 20x30 feet in which we grew flowers and veggies to sell at our roadside flower stand and at the Bayview Farmer's market. As the years went by, we realized that farming might be more of a career rather than a hobby, and every year we added more areas to the "garden" and built a self-serve farm shop in 1998. Through the years we have kept with our original roots of a family-owned business, personal service, and relationship with our community.
Our farm is located on the south end of scenic Whidbey Island. The Farm is 5 acres on which we produce strawberries, raspberries, marion berries, fruit, vegetables, flowers, and herbs. We are committed to growing all of our crops naturally without the use of chemicals, herbicides, pesticides etc. We also have three chicken coops where our "Girls" produce the best eggs around! We process our own delicious berry syrups from our sun-ripened berries - this is available from November through March. Our Farm shop is open year round and is self-serve. We love to have visitors and especially kids who enjoy tossing bread to the chickens or grass to our three adorable sheep. Our wedding and event site is located at the top of the Farm overlooking our growing fields, rose and peony hedge and beautiful gardens and arbors.
Over the years we have learned that farming is incredibly hard work, with every year bringing different challenges, crop failures, and weather issues. Farming is much more than a 9-5 job! All of this said, it is so rewarding to walk through rows upon rows of good healthy food, knowing that it will impact the health of our family and community. We genuinely love what we do, and our desire for the future is that the Farm will continue being a place of peace and health for generations to come.
