Dharma Ridge Farm is a family farm on the Olympic Peninsula between two of the most scenic parts of Washington – Olympic National Park to the west and Hood Canal to the east.
Husband-and-wife team Zach Wailand and Haley Olson, and their three children, started Dharma Ridge Farm in 2003 on five acres of land on Dharma Road, on a ridge above the Chimacum Valley. After some time moving around the area leasing different parcels, searching for enough land to grow a farm and a family, they settled on the historic Boulton Farm, 10 miles north of Quilcene.
They built the farm from the ground up, remodeling an old house and growing their family as they progressed.
The farm, certified organic by the Washington State Department of Agriculture, is now more than 100 acres. With soil health and vibrancy as their focus, these farmers use cover crops, crop rotations and organic-approved soil amendments to grow their primary crops – green beans, beets, bok choy, Brussels sprouts, carrots, chard, fennel, kale, lacinato (also known as Tuscan) and purple kales, leeks, lettuce, snap peas, potatoes, radishes, spinach and turnips.
