Seasonal, local, organic, sustainable, family
What do you get when you combine fertile soil, rich compost, abundant Northwest rain and plenty of TLC? Delicious food the way nature intended. At Zestful Gardens our sustainable agricultural practices minimize our impact on earth and maintain delicious flavor and nutrients in our food. We practice biodynamic agriculture, a method of organic farming that emphasizes the holistic development and interrelationships of the soil, plants and animals as a self-sustaining system.
Farming 35 acres in the Puyallup Valley, mother and daughter (and sometimes granddaughters), Valerie and Holly, tend organic vegetables, small fruits and herbs, rotating cover crops, livestock, orchard and woodland.
Zestful Gardens CSA (Community Supported Agriculture) Members receive the freshest produce possible, develop a relationship with a local farmer, participate in events on the farm and support sustainable farming. A weekly share contains 6 -10 fresh items, harvested that morning and selected from over 80 different varieties grown on the farm. Our standard share is from June through October, but more options are available.
You can find us at the Tacoma, Proctor and Steilacoom Farmers Markets.
