Oxbow would like to announce important organizational changes to its farming operations. Adam McCurdy has been named as Oxbow farm manager and will be leading our farm team with a dedicated sales force and a new research mandate. Luke Woodward will be moving on from Oxbow to pursue his interest promoting farming in the Snoqualmie Valley. Luke has been key to the creation and growth of Oxbow over the years. He will be missed. We wish him continued success and look forward to collaborating with him in the future as well as to seeing the fruits of his focus beyond Oxbow. Luke wanted us to share the following message with our Oxbow community:
“I have had a fascinating and enchanting 16 years at Oxbow for which I am very thankful. I have loved the land and the experience with all my heart.”
Our produce is available at local farmers markets from May to November, Seattle area restaurants, independent grocery stores, and through community-supported agriculture. Our CSA provides members with a weekly share of produce from June through October, and is the backbone of our farm.
Oxbow Farm is feeding minds as well as bodies. In 2010 we opened our education center to teach young children about organic farming and environmental conservation. At Oxbow they can see firsthand where their food comes from, where salmon spawn, and understand why we need to protect both.
Oxbow is commited to improving the health of our fish and wildlife habitat. In 2013 we expanded our conservation efforts with a native plant program. The Oxbow Native Plant Nursery, in partnership with the University of Idaho Center for Forest Nursery and Seedling Research is a native plant production, research and education facility.
