Bumblebee Farm

Sammamish Valley, WA, USA

If you’re looking for unusual varieties of fruits, vegetables, and herbs, look no further than Bumblebee Farm. Farmers Amy and Katy follow sustainable and organic growing practices to deliver delicious produce such as heirloom tomatoes, beans, and chicories like frisée and radicchio to their local community. No-till farming keeps precious soil life intact, and wildflowers grow amongst the food crops to encourage pollinators and other beneficial insects to pop by and help with the farm’s growing ventures. Many of the crop varieties Bumblebee Farm specializes in are on the Slow Food Ark of Taste, flavorful foods at risk of disappearing due to industrial agriculture. These crops weren’t bred for shipping, but growing them on a small scale means we can still enjoy them locally. Amy and Katy run a successful CSA program, harvesting their crops no more than a few days before delivering them. They vigorously promote seasonal eating, helping customers reap the benefits of mindful eating and connecting with their food. And because the products included in the CSA aren’t your typical run-of-the-mill fruits and veggies, Amy and Katy offer delicious recipe ideas to inspire out-of-the-ordinary culinary creations. Bumblebee Farm is a proud member of the Viva Farms business incubator, a program that provides new farmers support and access to shared equipment and infrastructure. This fantastic initiative helps make Bumblebee Farm’s journey wonderfully delicious.
