In the beautiful valley just outside the small rural community of Elk, Washington, sits Darilane Farms, a special place to third-generation dairy farmer Ashley Hanson. Standing atop a small hill, Hanson looks across the straight stretch in front of her. While the sun slowly sets to the left, fields and mountains stretch as far as the eye can see. “My farm is right in the middle of all this,” she said, smiling. “This is my favorite sight in the entire world.”
Popcorn, popcorn, who’s got the popcorn? We do! The perfect shareable snack is about to get a little sweeter. This decadent caramel corn is perfect for the holidays - give it as a gift, bring it to your work potluck, or keep it all for yourself (we won’t tell anyone).
Winter mornings and nights on the farm bring special memories for me of growing up. There are moments the season brings that illustrate what it’s like to live in the country, both good and bad, that words can never fully describe.
Some like it with a sprinkle of nutmeg, others enjoy it with a dollop of whipped cream on top, but this season we have another reason you can enjoy your eggnog!

Breakfast, known for its high rank among the meals, is even better with a glass of milk, melted cheese, a splash of milk over cereal, or a cup of yogurt.

For western Washington, Sequim, has little rain accumulation, only about 17 inches of water each year, but the Dungeness River provides many locals their livelihood year round. From the local Jamestown S’Klallam Tribe’s fishing practices to local farmers’ needs for reliable irrigation to grow crops, the whole community works together to conserve one of their most precious resources—water.
