AYALA FAMILY FARM


Ayala Farm is owned by lifelong farmer Ramon Ayala. Located in Outlook, WA, near Sunnyside in the southeast Yakima Valley, Ayala Farm is currently about 110 acres, divided more or less equally between fruit and vegetable production. Ramon has been a lifelong farmer, working for other larger farmers until he was able to buy his own land about twenty years ago. He originally bought only about ten  acres, but picked up more acreage piecemeal as the land became available and as he was able to increase productivity.

The farm produces a full variety of tree fruit, including many varieties of cherries, apricots, peaches, plums and apples; asparagus and a full variety seasonal produce.  Ayala Farm has been bringing their produce to Duvall Farmers market every week for the past eight years, and Margarito Ayala, Ramon's son, has been the face of Ayala for the past five years.

Marge has been farming with his father full time for the past six years. He grew up on farms, and started helping out at age five.  He moved to Seattle for ten years and did automotive work. But he wanted to move his family out of the city. He is happy to be back in the Yakima Valley and on the farm for family and the quiet, but there is less opportunity than in the city.

According to Marge, farming is good if you know what you are doing. But it is hard if you don't do the research and learn from your experiences because in the end you will just have dirt. It is not worth selling to warehouses because the farmer can't make enough money to cover the cost of production. They have found they can be more successful selling at farmers markets. Marge finds the people enjoyable, the markets are fun and beautiful. According to Marge “It's a perfect world.”
