Tolstoy Farms CSA

Tolstoy Farm is nestled in the folds of Mill Canyon, a coulee near Davenport, Washington. The canyon is home to two certified organic vegetable farms and several certified organic market gardeners, a 240 acre land trust/intentional community, various private homesteads and affiliated neighbors. Mill Canyon is an ancient, glacier-cut formation, quite distinct in appearance from the vast, treeless, wheat-farmed plateau which makes up much of southeastern Washington. Here in the canyon, the land contours are rich and varied. Open meadow gives way to pine-fir woods and desert chaparral. Roosevelt Lake (formed by the Grand Coulee Dam flooding the Spokane River), is five miles down the road. The climate is arid. Summer daytime temperatures can hover in the 90's or higher for days or weeks, while nights are cool enough to make tomato and pepper growing a challenge. Frosts can hit any time. Still, we manage to raise tons of veggies each year and enjoy a loyal customer base.
