Together, Taylor Barker and Arielle Luckmann own and operate Waxwing Farm. The two of us work full time on the farm, and share the responsibilities of all the diverse ins and outs of running a small farm business, from field work to bookkeeping. We both grew up in Western Washington, and met working on small organic farms in the Skagit Valley.
Arielle is grateful to do work that puts her outside most of the day. Cooking dinner and birding walks are two favorite hobbies, and she has played the fiddle for 27 years. Find some of her music at www.scarletlocomotive.com
Taylor has worked on vegetable farms in Western Washington since 2012. He is a fan of plants in general, large breakfasts, and living in the estuary of the Skagit river. Some of his favorite animals are frogs, owls, and porcupines.
To learn more about us and our farm, here is a story from the Skagit Valley Herald. We were honored to be featured and hope you enjoy.
