Spring Creek Farm is a small family farm in Rochester. Since beginning the business, in 1996, Chris Robinson and Melissa Southwick have been committed to maintaining a low environmental impact, with both the farm and the home using solar power – even to water the plants! They build their own organic soil mixes, and use biological controls for the rare pest occurrence.
Chris and Melissa are dedicated to their work, and the care they take is evident in the health and quality of their plants. For over 10 years, they have provided the Co-op with beautiful vegetable starts. They also sell blueberry bushes, fig trees, strawberries, and hops. Their farm produces many varieties of culinary herbs, such as lavender, mints, thyme, as well as medicinal herbs that can be hard to find, such as motherwort, skullcap, and arnica.
You can also find them at the Olympia Farmer’s Market.
