About Us
Sunnyside Farms of Haines currently manages 2.5 acres of the historic Charlie Anway farm in Haines. We also cooperate with Chilkat Valley Farms, a Christian community on the road system, to grow on one acre. We grow June-bearing strawberries, two types of potatoes, carrots, greens, brassicas, summer and winter squash, weeds, and other seasonal crops. Garlic has been purchased to be planted in fall 2019. Our goal is to be a significant food producer of wholesome food for Southeast Alaska and train our family in hard work, ethical business practices, and a balanced, healthy life. We believe that people of all ages benefit from agricultural agility and acumen. When we better understand this world, we better understand its maker. We also have a vision to encourage others develop their own food sources.
Practices
Grown from certified Alaska potato seed
Organic fertilizer only
Manual cultivation - no chemicals used on the field, no herbicides
Plastic mulch used to limit weeding needs for strawberries and protect from frost
All practices guided by exceptionalism, kindness, maturity, and excellence
