Tour the historic Mary Olson Farm, operated by the White River Valley Museum. Join King Conservation District and Horses for Clean Water to tour King County’s best preserved, fully restored HISTORIC subsistence farm.
Learn about operating a historic farm in an environmentally sensitive manner and see how staff has woven together themes of history, agriculture, ecology and education. See cleverly-designed mud-free confinement areas for miniature donkeys, a cow, and chickens, compost bins for manure management, salmon spawning stream restoration, small acreage hay field management, and a 100+ year old orchard. Use ideas generated from the eco-friendly, chore-efficient components of this historic farm to help guide you in the management of your modern-day small acreage livestock property. If interested, a tour of the 1902 farmhouse and weaving house can be included. Dress for the weather and a short amount of walking as parking is about 1/4 of a mile over a hill to the farmstead.
