RIVER WILLOW FARM


Welcome back to River Willow Farm for their second season at Duvall Farmers Market. Valorie Bordon and Andy Weiss have teamed up to bring fresh vegetables, herbs and plant starts from the farm, located just a mile south of Duvall on the banks of the beautiful Snoqualmie River. Throughout the season they hope to provide farmers market customers with peas, beans, tomatoes, corn, squash, cucumbers, carrots, peppers, greens and herbs.

The 55 acre historic farmland is owned by Valorie and her husband Andy Weiss. The farm has a 1903 farm house and 1906 barn, and was the first farmstead to be designated a King County Landmark; the barn is also listed on the State Historic Register, as the Platt Farm. Valorie and Andy spent a few years rehabilitating the house and rebuilding the farm infrastructure, and always maintained a large family vegetable garden.

River Willow Farm has gone through many transformations; horse boarding, pastured buffalo and cattle, and hay production. Market gardening is Andy and Valorie’s newest venture. The challenges of a new produce farm are many, including lack of infrastructure such as hoop houses to protect the plantings in the early spring months, an insufficiently sized greenhouse, and the need for fencing to protect against rabbits and other predators. Decisions need to be made about how much to plant and how best to manage pests while adhering to their commitment to organic agricultural practices. It is a learning experience, and one they are thoroughly enjoying.

Andy and Valorie are happy to be able to provide local grown produce at the market, but most of all they are enjoying the community connection of the market, visiting with friends each week and meeting new ones.
