What to expect

Our events have exclusive activities custom-made with you in mind to provide you with opportunities to explore, create, learn and make magical memories in the great outdoors. 

You can participate in our event-related activities or explore on your own by taking a walk in the farm fields, hiking, and playing along the Snoqualmie Riverbank. 

Immerse yourself in nature, taking a break from the city and connecting, listening & watching life thrive around Oxbow.

Some fan-favorite activities include:

  • Bringing snacks from home and enjoying a picnic with fresh produce from our Farm Stand.
  • Exploring the Living Playground by roaming free in a kid-friendly setting (Climbing a real-life tractor is always fun for the little ones!)
  • Peeking into a Conservation Center, where restoration activities are happening all the time. 
  • Touring a one-of-a-kind PNW Native Plant Nursery.
  • Coming camera-ready and take advantage of our natural photo-ops around the site. 

We are a King County farm located in beautiful Carnation, WA, just 25 miles from Seattle, and we are looking forward to seeing you soon!
