Schuh Farms – #GSVMemberMonday Feature
The sweet smell of fresh berries follows you inside, past the case of pies, cookies, cinnamon rolls and delicious goods baked from scratch. Tucked on immaculate shelves, flowered tea cups await treasure hunters. Ice cream shakes, jams and farm-grown produce (including five types of strawberries) tempt the palette, while seasonal fresh flowers and decor greet the eye. The iconic white barn housing this sensory farm store proudly bears the family name: Schuh Farms.
Since 1963, Schuh Farms has been providing exceptional produce and quality family experiences on the farm. Their Farm Store features from-scratch baked goods, fresh flowers, berries, produce and more. This family farm is a Skagit Valley landmark enjoyed by all generations.
Owners Susan and Steve Schuh and their family grew their original roadside berry stand into the current landmark locale back in the 1980’s. The family farm is now in its third generation, with daughter Jen now running the retail operations and overseeing their presence at 12 area farmers markets, while Jen’s son Stephen, a student at Washington State University, is majoring in ag technology. “He’s involved in the farm now too, and looking at improving the farm’s efficiency,” Jen said. Even the staff is part of the family – some members have been there for over 25 years.
In true #GSVMemberMonday fashion, we recently asked Jen what her favorite Skagit Valley fruit or vegetable was and why. Here’s what she said:
“Boysenberry! An amazing berry that is so big and plump full of juicy knock-your-socks-off flavor…”
The farmstand opens for the season on Tuesday, March 14th – just in time to celebrate “Pi Day” with fresh homemade pies available for sale to mark the mathematical celebration. To preorder your pies, please order via their website.
