Meet Dean and Jan Pigman! Their small family run farm is nestled in the Nisqually Valley and has been certified organic for 25 years. At Pigman's Organic Produce Patch they pride themselves on practicing homestead farming. All of their produce is still hand seeded, hand weeded, and hand picked. Both in their 70s, Dean and Jan haven't slowed down a bit. Jan still gets down on her hands and knees and smells the fruit to see if it's ripe. Their focus is on the high quality of their produce, not the quantity. And it definitely shows. Their produce is always gorgeous and always delicious!
They grow an assortment of berries, fruit and vegetables on their 6 acre farm that they sell at the Olympia Farmer's Market and to local markets like ours. They also have u-pick strawberries, raspberries, pumpkins & squash. In fact, their pumpkin patch in Steilacoom will be open soon! The Pigman's give back to the community too by donating produce to food banks and local churches. Next time you're in the store, keep an eye out for their scrumptious produce!
