We started Sunny Slope Farm because Juneau is a community where all of our food is shipped in from the Lower 48. We did not know who grew our food, how they tended it and what kinds of chemicals they used. This bothered us. We wanted fresh local food and wanted to shake hands with the farmer who grew it. Here at Sunny Slope Farm we believe that there is a better way to grow food that is local, sustainable and affordable. As a family operated back yard market grower, we never use chemical fertilizers, chemical pesticides or genetically modified plants. Instead we rely organic growing methods to keep our land and crops healthy and productive.
At Sunny Slope Farm, we care about reducing food miles, we want to connect with our community in a meaningful way, want to promote biodiversity and grow varieties of crops that taste better while operating a small-scale economically sustainable farming system. We believe that by working with the natural rhythms of our Southeast Alaska landscape we can grow excellent tasting food without risks to the environment. We also know that locally grown food is fresher, healthier, and tastes better!
We are located on Douglas Island in Juneau, Alaska.
