All great recipes call for the freshest, highest-quality ingredients. Organic gardens such as this one don't use pesticides or herbicides, synthetic fertilizers, bioengineering, or radiation.
Cascade Farmlands is part of the growing "locavore" movement, which means eating locally grown or produced food and is associated with sustainable agriculture. Diners are increasingly requesting food that is grown nearby, distributed over short distances, and reaches the plate more quickly than produce arriving via the conventional global industrial food system.
On-site gardens and local farmers' markets offer a wider selection of produce, such as heirloom tomatoes, garlic scapes, and rare varieties of apples, providing you with a wider palette of flavors.
Cache location: This cache is in a lovely and productive organic garden with the permission of the landowner. We hope you'll take a moment to stroll around and see the variety fruits and vegetables grown here.
This cache was originally part of the 2016-18 Cascade Farmlands GeoRomp, a 12-cache series that showcased the agriculture, recreation, and scenery of north-central Washington, with pathtag prizes for finishers. Each cache had a different theme and highlighted a different community: Leavenworth, Plain, Peshastin, Cashmere, Wenatchee, East Wenatchee, Entiat, Chelan, Manson, Orondo, Waterville, and Quincy.
