Farm to Farmer is a project of PCC Farmland Trust, a nonprofit, 501(c)(3) land trust working to secure, preserve, and steward threatened farmland in Washington State, ensuring that generations of local farmers productively farm using sustainable and organic growing methods. We take our mission one step further by innovating on traditional conservation tools to provide access to affordable farmland. Learn more.

Farm to Farmer Team

Amy Moreno-Sills, Farm to Farmer Coordinator

Amy Moreno-Sills discovered her passion for agriculture while attending The Evergreen State College. Upon graduating she began her farming career in the Snoqualmie Valley of King County. It was there that she learned the business of farming and became an advocate for a myriad of agriculture-related issues. Amy and her husband met while working together on a King County farm and moved to Pierce County to farm in 2009. They started their own farm business, Four Elements Farm in 2014, and currently grow organic fruits and vegetables on PCC Farmland Trust conserved land. As a farmer and a conservation advocate, Amy has a deep desire to keep farmland in production. She is excited to help support the viability of farmers and farmland through her coordination of the Farm to Farmer project. Amy’s work is based in Pierce County.

Lily Gottlieb-McHale, Farm to Farmer Coordinator

Lily is a vegetable farmer and landowner in Enumclaw, WA who has served on all sides of the land access spectrum – searching, buying, leasing, and now, matching. Lily’s passion for sharing resources and working within a community of farmers led her to start her own farm business, Shared Soil. Shared Soil addresses issues of land access by renting farmland to multiple farmers at a time. Lily has experience building farm infrastructure, writing leases, and navigating the farmer/landowner relationship. While working for a community organization in South King County, Lily coordinated food access initiatives and organized a community farmers market with non-traditional farmers. After serving as an advocate and organizer for beginner and immigrant farmers in her community, Lily is thrilled to formalize her land access and matching work through her role as Farm to Farmer Coordinator. Lily’s work is based in King County.
