More about Midori Farm:  
Midori Farm was started by Hanako Myers and Marko Colby in 2008 on a 5-acre parcel of rented land.  In 2013 they purchased 29 acres of sandy loam fields and forested land in the Quilcene Valley.  Each year with the help of many hands they have been working to transform a neglected pasture into a thriving diverse farm.  In 2017 they took on management of another 14 acres of pastureland and are working to bring it into production growing both soil building cover crops and vegetables.
