Radicle Roots Farm
We are a sustainable market farm cultivating less than one acre of land located in Snohomish, Washington. Established in 2015, we grow nutrient-dense produce using organic practices for the Snohomish Farmers Market, our Online Farm Store and several restaurants. We use no till, organic growing practices to provide our community with the most nutrient dense vegetables possible.
Our mission is to strengthen our local food system by sustainably growing delicious nutrient dense vegetables for our community and to inspire more farmers to do the same.
We acknowledge our farm sits on Snohomish, Stillaguamish, Tulalip and Coast Salish territory. We hope to honor their past, present and future legacy of land stewardship by treating this land with respect and deep gratitude so that it may nourish generations to come.

Radicle Roots Farm is located in beautiful Snohomish, Washington. Nestled between the Pilchuck River and the Centennial trail, we are only 1.5 miles from downtown Snohomish. We hope this close proximity will help the community connect with their food and know their farmer. After three years leasing farmland in Central Oregon, we are so grateful to be farming on a permanent property where we have the privilege to be long-term stewards of this precious farm land.
We believe that healthy soils grow healthy food so we use growing practices that support this. We are committed to using only organic practices, meaning we never use any synthetic fertilizers, herbicides, or pesticides. Most of the work on the farm is done by hand or by using appropriate technology, like our paper pot transplanter or Quick Cut Greens Harvester. We use unheated greenhouse to extend our growing season.
With under one acre in cultivation, our farm produces an incredible amount of high quality produce from a small space. Using permanent beds and a minimal tillage system we have been able to significantly increase our soil's fertility and biological activity. We are always evolving our farming methods to grow food more efficiently and with better flavor and nutrition, but we stand strong on our commitment to growing food sustainably using organic practices. As we continue to grow our farm we strive to increase production through better crop planning and intensive spacing rather than increasing acreage and relying on a tractor for the majority of farm chores. As the famous market gardener, Jean-Martin Fortier says, "Grow better, not bigger."
