Our Clallam County farms are a cornerstone of our community, and with your support, we’re taking action to ensure they are here for generations to come. We’re so excited to announce that, as of March 29th, No Goat Farm is protected forever!

Because of local donations, we were able to secure funding from Washington Department of Ecology’s Floodplains by Design Program through the Jamestown S’Klallam Tribe and Clallam County’s Conservation Futures Fund to place a conservation easement on No Goat Farm. The next time you are at the intersection of Towne Road and Woodcock Road, look for the big “Preserved Farmland” sign at No Goat Farm.

No Goat Farm is the most recent addition to a rich tapestry of over 800 acres of farmland and habitat protected by our community in the Dungeness area over the last 34 years.

Thanks to your commitment, we’re on track to double the pace of farmland conservation over the next decade, all while continuing to protect vital fish & wildlife habitat.

With the conservation of No Goat Farm, we’ve reached a fantastic milestone: 26 local farms permanently protected! This achievement wouldn’t be possible without the incredible support of our community. Together, we’re not just protecting land but also local ways of life.
