Lowlands Farm is a small flower and produce farm located in beautiful Snohomish, Washington. We use organic and sustainable farming practices to care for the land and resources, ensuring that only the highest quality products reach our customers. Stewardship of the farm means not only caring for the land, but also cultivating community and providing a living wage for our farmers and staff.
Our produce and flowers are grown using organic farming practices, but we choose not to be Certified Organic. We practice sustainable farming techniques by utilizing integrated pest management, organic soil amendments, cover crops, crop rotation plans, efficient water usage, and lean farm management principles. We are happy to talk about our growing practices with you if you have more questions!
Community is at the heart of Lowlands Farm. In a time when our interactions with food are becoming more convenient and less personal, we have a vision to create a thriving, active community around our farm: connecting people with people, with healthy food, and with the patterns of the changing seasons.
Alice VanderHaak grew up working on dairy and berry farms here in Washington’s Whatcom County. Despite a strong resolve to find a more urban career, her passion for healthy eating and the environment led her right back to farming. Between becoming a Registered Dietitian and completing a MA in Nutrition, Alice spent 10 years working on, managing, and co-owning small scale vegetable farms before starting Lowlands Farm in 2018. From the day-to-day manual work of harvesting and weeding, to creative problem solving and establishing efficient systems, to managing budgets and spreadsheets, she finds deep joy and fulfillment in all aspects of producing beautiful, quality produce and flowers for the community.
