Owner info

Year Purchased: 1990

About the owner: We are a long time Stillaguamish River Valley farming family. The Northwest is famous for its beet, cabbage, and spinach seed production. Our family is in its fourth generation of farming these crops. My husband and I purchased and remodeled our house from the ground up starting in 1990. Our house has had quite an evolution helping to raise four children and run a farming business. Life changed drastically for us a couple of years ago when the love of my life passed away. We sold the farming business but kept the land and the house. We are opening this wonderful property up to the public so many others can enjoy it also.
