Blue Glass farm is a labor of love. A vision of a new type of agriculture. We have tried to take the advice of some of the brightest minds in agriculture, to stand on their shoulders, and launch our hat into the ring. We farm boldly. Even amongst small organic farms, our operation feels a bit unorthodox.
We would love to be able to say that we are doing something huge here -- that we are changing the world -- but we're not. We are a quarter acre piece of a massive agricultural system, but that doesn't mean that what we do isn't important. Just like our plants, we believe that abundance can start from the tiniest of seeds. There is bold intention to the way we farm and hopefully it becomes something bigger. We hope our tiny seeds turns into a massive tree. We hope that tree becomes the heart of a forest.
We met for the first time at a middle school dance in Chewelah, Washington. We dated in high school then went our separate ways to see the world. We found our way back to each other and built a life together. Alex was always interested in agriculture, but Tyler was a slow convert. Now we farm. We farm a lot. Sometimes it feels like all we do is farm, but thankfully it's a lot of fun.
Alexandra recieved her masters in Plant Health Management from WSU and since 2017 has operated her own small cut flower farm in Stevens County, Washington.
She is excited to venture into food production and learn the Seattle area market. She wants to connect people directly to the building blocks that power our planet, and help provide opportunities for everyone to learn about, experience, and enjoy the incredible capacity of PNW agriculture.
Tyler got interested in farming after reading an article about a rooftop farm in New York. From that one article, he went on to read everything he could get his hands on about market gardening and realized that it had been growing for decades in the U.S. and long before that around the world.
He is excited about becoming part of the amazing community of market gardeners changing the culinary landscape of the Pacific Northwest.
