Meghan Payne & Jordi Johnson
We're two twenty-something farmers with heads full of dreams and tired backs. We believe in doing things well. We grow on a small scale so we can focus on doing the best job possible.
We farm is 2 acres and we split production between vegetables and flowers. We are a certified organic farm. Our farming philosophy revolves around community— in growing fruits, vegetables, and flowers for the people of this land, we hope to help bring Whatcom County together to realize the collective strength of our whole community.
Buying local means you put your community first. We're republicans, democrats, socialists, libertarians; we're moms, veterans, teachers, grocery clerks; we're artists, musicians, tea-makers and bread bakers; the one thing we have in common is this place that we've built our lives. Through the collective celebration of this land and its bounty, we build the relationships that maintain stability, foster resiliency, and promise prosperity.
Dusty is the landowner and mentor that raised Wild Rose Farm. Dusty has an inconspicuous tradition of raising farmers; a large handful of Whatcom County farmers started at Broadleaf Farm under his careful eye. A humble man, his compassionate support and gentle teaching style allows his student-farmers to find their own way. Dusty doesn't tell you what to do, he patiently waits for you to ask a question. Dusty is the hidden treasure of Whatcom County. Anyone who knows him understands the irreplaceable value that he offers to this community.
