beef, lamb, and pork from pasture raised animals. “Once you have tasted pork from pigs raised on pasture where they can graze and root you will never settle for anything less again...Lopez Island Farm creates gourmet specialty foods from apples grown by us and local farms here in the Pacific Northwest”. 

Comment from Land and Sea: This lovely farmstand served our community with healthy, locally produced food for many years, contributed to the local economy, and created JOBS. It is now closed due to short sighted government restrictions arbitrarily enforced. What a shame. 
To read about the incredible Jones Family Farm, or to buy meats and seafood from Jones Family Farm/Barlow Bay Seafood, go to
Nick and Sara Jones and family have contributed so much to our local community, and this hard working and generous young couple supplies the local Lopez Island Farmer's Market, dozens of local restaurants on all the islands, and some of Seattle's finest restaurants as well.
It is well worth reading more about these two and their team, and visiting their farm if you have a chance.

* New - Westcott Bay Mediterranean Mussels
Shellfish aquaculture farm. Products grown exclusively in Westcott Bay. On the shoreline of San Juan Island near the Canadian border, the productive bay is enriched by the clean, cold waters of the Straits of Juan de Fuca.
Westcott Bay combines advanced aquaculture systems, prime site location, and a production team focused on excellence.
The shellfish are spawned in the Westcott Bay hatchery and cultivated in lantern nets suspended in deep water for optimal growth and safety. The harvested shellfish are cleaned to table-ready condition, chilled and hand-packed for both safety and quality of product.
The Washington State Health Department tests the shellfish each week for PSP (Red Tide) and Domoic Acid. It tests the growing waters bimonthly. The company's marine biologists test the water weekly.
