Growing Vegetables and Fruit at Nash's

Growing vegetables and fruit at Nash's Organic ProduceNash Huber started his business by growing vegetables and direct marketing them to his local community. Although the farm has become much more diverse, produce is still the major focus.

Every year, about 100 acres are devoted to organic vegetable production. Waylon Barrett and Chris Tipton, production managers, are in charge of planning rotations, deciding which vegetables to plant, and how much.

Because of the unique climate in the Sequim-Dungeness Valley, certain vegetables can be grown into the winter. Nash’s is always working towards Seasonal produce available at Nash's Organic Produceselecting varieties that can thrive in cooler weather in order to extend our growing and marketing seasons.

Root crops, like carrots, rutabagas, turnips, and parsnips, can actually get sweeter if left in the ground, providing there is no deep freeze. Winter greens will also retain sugar to act as an antifreeze in cold temperatures. Organic Seed Alliance has been an invaluable partner in the effort to develop organic varieties adapted to our local conditions.
