Terry’s Berries 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

Pierce County will use this grant to purchase development rights on Terry’s Berries, a 21 acre CSA share located between East Tacoma and Puyallup. The owners intend to commit the property to agricultural uses in perpetuity. The farm rests on some of the most productive soils west of the Cascades, surrounded by other agricultural uses. Its proximity to the urban fringe makes it a strategic location for agricultural conservation.
