Natural Settings

OrcaSong Farm
The mission of OrcaSong  Farm began with the idea to create a sustainable organic farm that could demonstrate how farming, healthy food and protecting the environment was essential to our success and survival as a species. To create a botanical destination and community education center for both visitors and locals of Orcas Island. A place where all can discover the joys of healthy living, being outdoors, growing food, protecting the earth and connecting with others. We planted an acre of lavender, then began to distill our lavender harvest into hydrosols and lavender oils. After getting our lavender process down we began to expand to other botanical’s and hemp. Now we have a large meandering garden, our own line of botanical products expanding from salves to teas and oils. We sell these products and other local creations in our farm store. To expand we have also opened up the farm to campers, and Airbnb guests, as well as workshops. Our mission still remains at the center of what we do here at OrcaSong Farm: to create a destination where people can learn, connect, and become inspired by the magic of our island. A place to enjoy the wonders of being outdoors, eating healthy food, connecting with others and taking care of the earth.
