It takes a village to make the magic happen at Jubilee! It’s an ecosystym of teamwork involving our family, our crew, our workshares – and all of our CSA members and customers. This beautiful community of effort is what brings it all together into meals & memories grown here and enjoyed at your table.
David was four years old when his family broke ground here in 1989. When he was 7 years old, he wrote at school: “I plan to be a farmer when I grow” – the rest, as they say, is history! David is now the second generation running the farm. He especially loves tractor work. David & Kristin bought the farm from Erick in 2019 and are honored to get to be a part of Jubilee’s story.
Kristin handles the bookkeeping. She preps the barn market, helps plan events, and does miscellaneous art projects for the farm. Junior farmers are usually helping her – they love seeding, harvesting, & feeding the animals (and going on farm adventures with Grandpa Erick!)
Erick likes to call himself the “Farmer Emeritus” of Jubilee – with his family, he started Jubilee Farm in 1989. He has poured his vision, creativity, and hard work into the farm since the start – he’s our “farmer philosopher”. Erick continues to do all sorts of projects on the farm, as well as lend his insights and wisdom.
Liz does a little bit of everything around the farm. From managing the CSA and market, orchestrating meat sales and writing the beloved boxletter to obsessing over tomatoes and plotting and scheming with Kristin about ways to make the farm even more awesome. Liz’s job is multifaceted and certainly never boring and she wouldn’t have it any other way! In her down time….wait there’s no down time in farming!
Lena is excited to be part of the crew at Jubilee for her 2nd season. At the farm she enjoys riding on the back of the flatbed, spending her days outside in the Snoqualmie valley, watching seeds transform into plants, and connecting with people over the joys of growing (and eating) good food. Away from the farm she enjoys writing, rock climbing, and coffee.
Angela came to Jubilee from the world of corporate accounting. With no prior experience in farming, she was eager to get her hands (somewhat) dirty and quickly learned of her love for deep squats while planting, tractor work, sunrise harvests with the crew, and coming to the farm on her days off. Her favorite crops at the farm are eggplants, collards, melons, strawberries, and flowers, just to name a few.

Great to see that Jubilee Farm and you, Erick, are still thriving there in Carnation. Best wishes to all of you.
