Natambea Farm Cooperative

Visit Website

Natembea is a cooperative farm project on 97 acres of cropland, pasture, woods and wetlands on the edge of Port Townsend. We are currently home to six permaculture businesses started by young local farmers growing everything from root vegetables, flowers, fruit and nut trees to goats, cows, pigs and ducks. Farm partners run their businesses independently, but share resources, labor and stewardship responsibilities for the land.

ABOUT NATEMBEA:

In 2016 Devon and David Pablo Cohn purchased the land from the Swanson family with the mission of preserving it as open space for community benefit in a way that honors its history as a family farm. We’re still taking our first baby steps in this long and already-rewarding process and are grateful for the outpouring of support we’ve received from the Jefferson County Land Trust, WSU Farm Extension, Conservation District, National Resource Conservation Service, City and County offices, the Swanson family themselves, and the warm and welcoming farmers of the peninsula.

Natembea is working with the Jefferson County Land Trust to establish a conservation easement over the property, supporting our mission of preserving it as open land for community benefit, honoring its history as a family farm.
