Maple Rock Farm was
founded in the year 2000 by John Steward. The historic homestead is located on Orcas Island in the San Juan archipelago of
northwestern Washington State.
We currently have four acres of organic produce, berries and fruit under cultivation. Our produce can be found on the menus of several
of Orcas Island's finest restaurants. We also sell at the Orcas Island Farmer's Market every Saturday (in season) and operate a 60 member CSA.
Our goal of providing fresh, pesticide-free, locally grown produce to residents of Orcas Island is consistantly attained with ingenuity,
commitment, energy, patience and hard work. We are not
striving to be a big production farm, but growth is inevitable as the community
becomes increasingly aware of - and commited to - the benefits of eating locally, organically, and seasonally. As we grow, we strive to maintain
the integrity of the farm's goal of diversity and quality at a fair price. We are actively involved in local agriculture issues as we hope to
maintain and preserve the unique legacy of farming on Orcas Island.
Maple Rock Farm is a constantly evolving organism. See our mrf blog. We are
always looking to the future sustainability of the farm and hoping to improve our methods in order to attain this goal. We are proud of the work
we do and our pride shows in the beauty of our produce. We are honored daily by being able to live a life of intention, of hard work, and
meaning. We all derive a great deal of joy from farming and we are lucky to be able to share our bounty with our community, Orcas
