Welcome to Filbert Acres! Our family farm grows fantastic nutrient dense foods: microgreens and hazelnuts. Our microgreens are sold to fine restaurants and vendors in and around Puyallup.  Our hazelnuts are grown in our beautiful valley soil, harvested each fall, and sold from the farm and at Proctor Farmer's Market.

We're open Saturdays October through December, and by appointment.

Time to Pre-Order Tomato Plants!

Tomato Plant Sale 2017 -- La Nina has left--ella se ha ido!  Possible warm summer ahead!

We want you to buy Tomato plants in January and February.  No really.  Here's the form.  All you have to do is print, choose, and mail a check.  Then we give you a call in May when your tomato plants are ready!  Got two emails about our tomato plants yesterday.  One reads:  "Hello, Will filbert acres be selling tomato starts this year? They were amazing last year. Thank you and best wishes, KZ"

Pictured here are Pink Berkeley Tie Dye and Pork Chop--two of our favorite selections, with copious amounts of basil, of course.

     Our delicious in-shell nuts will be $8.00/lb at the market, $7.50/lb at the farm, and $7.00/lb for 5lb or more.  A new option:  we have a cracker available both at the farm and at the market so that you can crack some or all of your purchase and easily start snacking and baking!

Unimpeared Bliss!

    Pearfect Pork; Eating in the Impearative; delicious farm-grown Filbert Acres Pork!

   Filbert Acres signature pork is meat you can trust!  Our pigs grown on the pasture, eating leftover vegetables, organic feed, hazelnuts and and tons of apples and other fruit.  We raise them from piglets, so we can stand by what they've been fed, how they've been treated, and how the pork will taste.

    We are now taking deposits to reserve whole and half hogs for the September/October time frame.  By sending us $150 for a half, or $300 for a whole, you can guarantee a supply for months into the winter.  Our price per pound hanging weight is $5.40/lb and we had great feedback regarding Olson's Butcher shop in Enumclaw, so we'll be sending them there again.

    If you haven't bought a whole or half from a farm before, or if you have further questions, we have a helpful sheet including a total price estimate.  We're also happy to answer questions by phone or email.

    As of this week we have 5 hogs left to sell.  Now is your chance to stock up for fall and winter, get a big ham ready for the holidays, and get some bones and hocks to boil for cozy wholesome soups.  We are likely to sell out of wholes and halves for the year sometime in August or September, so please mail us check or stop by if you want to be sure to get your order in.

Rat Terriers Have a Field Day

Jreed and his Mongrol Hoard swung by Filbert Acres on Monday and had a rat hunt.  Our rat terriers joined the fray for the light hunt and got some good action and learning in. Artemis (center of photo), had a great day, being the first one on the largest rat.  All of us learned a lot and had a great time.

We recommend farmers to get in touch with Jreed and schedule a hunt when he and his dogs are next in the area.  Check out his website and facebook page for amazing photos and excellent information on rats!

Time for PRIME : HR 3187 would reverse disasterous 1967 law that destroyed small farms

You may have read that Kapowsin Meats has been shut down and that there is a recall of meat slaughtered since April.  The USDA would not have to be involved in local meat production at all if we could just get the PRIME Act passed.  Please read more about the bipartisan bill and contact your representative if you think it would restore production and retailing rights to small family farms.
