Three- quarters of what we produce goes directly to our sister company, Terra Organics (www.terra-organics.com) for distribution to homes and businesses in the Puget Sound region.

The Lord’s Acre grows food and gives it away but exists to put itself out of business. In order to get there, our goal is to grow food and community in order to eliminate hunger. We are known for thinking deeply about our work and for growing 9 – 11 tons per acre annually of fresh organic produce that we distribute locally through four very different sites: at the local food pantry where we run a beautiful market table, at a share market where we run a produce stand, at a pay-what-you-can-if-you-can weekly meal and to a culinary training program for those with barriers to employment.
