At Finnriver, we farm and ferment across a combined 80 acres of Certified Organic farmland and orchard in the rural Chimacum Valley, in the traditional territories of Chemakum and S’Klallam peoples on Washington state’s north Olympic Peninsula. Our two farm locations (the 33 acre 'Home Farm' and our 50 acre Orchard) are 3 miles apart but both border salmon-bearing Chimacum Creek and both are permanently protected as farmland forever with conservation easements from the Jefferson Land Trust.
MORE ABOUT FINNRIVER
The Finnriver Orchard, located on a historic former dairy just south of the Chimacum crossroads, grows 6,000+ organic heirloom and traditional cider apple trees and the land is also shared by a collaborative of farm partners doing organic research, education and enterprise. Finnriver ferments over 30 craft ciders along with a range of Brandy Dessert Wines, Port-Style Spirited Wines and our oak-aged Pommeau.
Finnriver has a mission to celebrate the beauty and bounty of the land, to reconnect people to the land that sustains us and to grow community! Throughout the covid pandemic we have remained inspired and fortified by our mission, while we are also learning to adapt, change and grow. We are committed to getting to the other side of this together with our farm neighbors and community and hope our shared experience of the complexity and challenges of this time will increase our capacity to work and evolve together. The pandemic has revealed both strengths and weaknesses in our community food system and we are motivated to continue working for greater resilience and equity in our foodshed.
