Located at the Port of Skagit Airport, Skagit Landing opened in July of 2021 and is a locally-owned and operated farm-to-fork restaurant and catering company that celebrates the “bounty of the county” on every plate.

We recently asked Chef Josie what her favorite Skagit grown fruit and/or vegetable was. Here’s what she had to say:
“That’s a hard one! Tomatoes. There are so many different varieties, beautiful shapes, and sizes, and they are so sweet. You don’t need to do anything to them cooking-wise to appreciate their flavor. They are simple and delicious.“
