Food & Farms

Farming on Orcas Island has a rich and bountiful history. As early as the 1890’s, the farms and farmers on the island were producing crops for islanders, as well as for shipment around the United States. Orcas Island orchards and farms produced such prodigious amounts of fruit and produce that steamships from Seattle transported more than 95,000 boxes of apples from the Eastsound docks alone.

That tradition continues to this day, with local farms supplying both locals and visitors with a wide array of organic produce, meat, fish and shellfish. The very best restaurants on Orcas feature these wares prominently on their menu, continuing the chain from farmer to consumer with a delicious twist.
