One of the more popular Sequim Farms is Nash’s Organic Produce, owned and operated by farmer Nash Huber. This Sequim staple has been in business since 1979. Today, they farm a total of 450 acres of vegetables, berries, orchard, grain, organic seed, pigs, poultry, compost and hay. It also happens to be one of Sequim’s largest private-sector employers. You can buy local goods from this thriving business at their own Farm Store, but also at 7 local farmers markets, in addition to wholesale to PCC Natural Markets in Seattle, Organically Grown Company in Portland, and Discovery Organics in Victoria, B.C.
