Oxbow’s mission is to EDUCATE people on the importance of environmental stewardship and healthy food, to RECONNECT us to the land and our local sustainable food supply, and to INSPIRE us to take action in our daily lives and in our communities.
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.
