No toxins applied for twelve years, certified both Organic and Salmon Safe, served by Sunnyside, second largest town in Yakima County, recently listed as 3rd safest city in Washington State, with two tasting rooms and a Port Authority supported new incubator micro brewing company and with new generation of residents and farmers working to expand and improve Sunnyside as fast as they can. The farming possibilities seem limitless and has historically been used as a dairy, a horse operation, other grazing animals, myriad mixed vegetables, winter squash, hay, and now pursuing hemp.
