Local Roots is a family-run vegetable farm in the Snoqualmie river valley, about 20 miles outside of Seattle. Local Roots uses no synthetic inputs, building soil fertility with cover crops and compost, control weeds with tractor and human powered tools, minimize insect damage with spun-fabric row cover, and accept a certain amount of crop loss due to pests, disease, and bad weather. With such an operation, they are keen on utilizing the appropriate post-harvest handling practices to ensure safe and quality product. Join us to learn more about their post-harvest handling protocols and their recent process of becoming Good Agriculture Practices (GAP) certified.

Owned and operated by Steve and Nancy Bishop, Alpenfire Cider produces hard apple cider and vinegar using cider fruit from their certified organic orchard and from locally grown organic apples. They planted their orchard in 2004 with over 800 trees and 10 varieties of English, French & Early American cider specific apples. Join us for a cider and vinegar making tour that covers the whole operation from the branch to the bottle. Also hear how the Bishops utilized a USDA Value-Added Producer grant to increase their production capabilities to the point of self-sufficiency.
