The days are getting longer.
A chorus of frogs have returned, the greenhouse is filling up, a vase of daffodils are sounding their trumpets at me and eminent ewes tells me Spring has returned. August Farm has now begun it's fifth season. As we enter into this season the familiar pace has a beat of its own to get swept up into. I am so grateful to feel strong and capable to farm after a very trying previous year. Every year we have been farming we have taken on a new project, this year, we are hoping only to refine the ones we have.
-insert sigh of relief here-
You can find us every Saturday 10-3 at the Olympia Farmers Market. We will be there with our pasture raised chicken, fresh pasture eggs and Icelandic sheep skin rugs until the end of March.

August Farm specializes in growing an expansive array of cut flowers to style any type of wedding or event. Working with local, fresh flowers that come straight from our fields, ensures that your special day holds its own unique hallmark of time and place.We offer 3 different options; Bulk Flowers, Design or Design and Install. We are currently taking reservations for July through October. Contact us for further information or to book your event.
The greenhouse is beginning to fill up and we are so excited to dive into another season of flowers. Flowers feel like the magic of the farm. We both get so excited about them. We are excited to announce that for Olympia members we are going to be hosting a weekly POP UP downtown at BAR FRANCIS. We also deliver to NE Portland. The CSA season is 12 weeks and is $180.00. It begins end of June and runs into September. You can sign up here.
Icelandic Sheepskin Rugs
We just got our sheep skins back from last Fall. It always blows my mind how incredibly special these are. In our home I am constantly moving them around; sometimes they are thrown over chairs as my perfect reading companion, pulled onto the bed on cold nights and of course the cats favorite area rug. You can find an assortment of them on our website for sale. We also, have been brining a few with us to the Olympia Winter Farmer's Market on Saturday's.
We are Hiring
Every year we have the incredible fortune of having amazing interns working along side us. We are seeking an intern for 2016 farming season to help with the day to day operations of the farm and monthly chicken slaughter. Please spread the word and get in touch with us if you are interested.
