Farm to Farmer would not be possible without the support of our many funders and strategic partners.
Farm to Farmer launched in Pierce and King Counties based on PCC Farmland Trust’s deep relationships and history conserving farmland in those communities. Today, through strategic, location-based partnerships, Washington Farmland Trust is excited to be able to bring Farm to Farmer to new communities across the region.
Viva Farms is a farm business incubator headquartered in Skagit Valley that provides bi-lingual training and resources to new and beginning farmers. Viva Farms leverages the Farm to Farmer land-matching website to staff the program locally, providing customized, in-person support and resources based on farmer and landowner needs in their area.
Working Farmland Partnership
Farm to Farmer currently serves Pierce, Skagit, and King Counties of Washington State. Our work in King County is guided by the shared goals of the Working Farmland Partnership, a group of stakeholders aiming to ensure a farming future in King County by keeping land in production and increasing land access for farmers. By leveraging land-matching tools like Farm to Farmer, and through personalized technical support, the Working Farmland Partnership helps landowners put their farmable land into production and farmers find, evaluate, and prepare the right properties for their businesses. Members of the collaboration include: Washington Farmland Trust, SnoValley Tilth, King County, Viva Farms, American Farmland Trust, International Rescue Committee’s New Roots Program, Tilth Alliance, and King Conservation District.
