Harmony Farm

Category Overview

Farmland Preservation protects valuable farmland and habitat for recreationally important animals, like salmon, birds, deer, and elk. These projects allow families to continue farming the land they have worked on for generations, and provide Washingtonians with healthy local food and a diverse economy. WWRP is the only source of farmland preservation funding in the state budget.

Project Highlights

Skagit County used this grant to purchase two development rights on 200 acres of prime soil farmland in the northern Skagit Delta. The Harmony farm is located east of I-5, just south of Highway 20 and the Port of Skagit. This farm is one of the largest dairies in the county and also grows crops including wheat, corn and tulips.
