We have been farming on the Enumclaw Platuea since 1982. Rockridge Farms was started in 1991 we are a small farm employing family, friends, and neighbors. Our philosophy has always been life, food, and farming should never be boring.

We have over 148 different crops and specialize in "exotic edibles" from all over the world such as Bamboo shoots, Heirloom Tomatoes, Cukes, Pears, Apples, and Raspberries, Tuni, Fuki, Wasabe, Yuzu, Sansho, Hardy Ginger and Bananas to just name a few.

Our Moto is "To Die For" flavor. If it's just "OK", we don't grow it. We are constantly trying new plants for flavor and variety.

We continue to expand our varieties of exotic, heritage and heirloom fruits and vegtables, seeking out the very best flavors from every corner of the world. 2006 additions include some truly unusual herbs, tomatoes, cucumbers, melons, fruits and greens from China, Japan, Italy, France, South America and Russia.

Our Asian Pear Orchards: Our front orchard was planted in 1991. Hillside orchard was planted in 1995. Lower orchard planted in 1997. Total of a little over 3,000 trees consisting of 17 varieties from throughout the South Pacific.

Our Apple orchards: Sweet apples in 1992, hillside and lower orchards were planted in 1997 & 2000. We also have 2,000 Cider apples planted on our north farm in 2004.

Bamboo Grove was planted in 1996. We have over 107 varieties-mostly timber bamboo, and sell bamboo to nursery stock in the spring and the fall. We produce a little over 5,000 pounds of fresh bamboo shoots in the early spring for local restaurants.

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a feisty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.
