Cloudview EcoFarms is near Royal City, WA, in sunny and hot Central Washington, about 45 miles east of Ellensburg. We irrigate with Columbia River water to grow a wide variety of crops. We are always working towards a more sustainable and ecological farming model. Our vegetable operation is 100% certified organic. A great deal of the apple orchard is certified organic and the orchards in general are Food Alliance Certified.
We grow for farmers markets, a 100 person CSA, restaurants, institutions, and schools. We also process much of our food for value-added products.

There are 8-16 people working on the main farm at any given time. We have group meals, meetings, special events, and, of course, much work around the gardens and farms. We also dry, can, and freeze as much food as we can for the winter, grind our own grain, grow our own dry beans and corn, and save many of our own seeds. We welcome diversity, and many different kinds of hard working people live on the farm. We have a communal ethic around recycling, composting, yard and landscape tending, and animal care.
