Calliope Farm

Speaking of growing and eating locally… how about 3 miles from the Co-op’s westside location? Introducing Calliope Farm, a family operation that is certified organic and passionate about quality and diversity. “We grow on 10 acres of beautiful silt-loam soil divided between two sites on the very edge of Olympia.¬† Our practices emphasize soil building cover-crops and long crop rotations, livestock integration, efficient water use, and season extension to offer our customers and employees year round produce and employment.”

Here is current news from the farm (and great photos!)
