You'll never find produce this fresh at the grocery store. Most of the time, our farm stand offerings were picked within the last 24 hours!
Three generations own and operate Lilac City Harvest. Without our multi-generational effort, none of this would be possible.
We are devoted to improving the health of our soil, but also the health of our communities and the Earth. Eating locally cuts down on carbon emissions, increases the nutrient density of the food, connects us with one another, and so much more.
Born and raised in Texas, Adam grew up gardening with his Papaw. When the opportunity arose to buy a home with land in the Spokane Valley, he jumped on it. He works full time and farms full time, but sleeps soundly knowing that his productivity has meaning. He hopes that his passion for farming can connect him to our community and cultivate meaningful relationships - and what better way to do that than through food?
Emily was born in Spokane, and graduated from Central Valley High School. She earned her Bachelor's degree in Anthropology from Eastern Washington University in 2012, and has been a stay-at-home-parent since the birth of their first child. She enjoys doing genealogy, reading, working out, and spending time with her family. She is the "voice" behind our social media, and hopes to be able to share the fun and interesting farm related information while also sharing a laugh.
Asher and Blake are a big part of Lilac City Harvest, and can almost always be found at the farm stand right along with us. Asher likes to help Adam do anything that involves power tools or driving the quad. Blake adores being outside doing just about anything, but particularly likes helping with chicken related chores - and they both LOVE driving the tractor!
It might seem silly to include an About Me for our land, but we truly view it as a part of our family. We take care of it, and it takes care of us. We are lucky enough to have about eight acres just on the outskirt of Spokane Valley. When we were searching for a home, we fell in love with this land the moment our tires hit the gravel drive. It felt "like home" from the start, and we are grateful to establish our roots here.
