April 18, 2013: 21 Acres of Farmland Holds Its Own in Wine Country
Can farm fresh creamy nettle soup compete in wine country? If 21 Acres Center for Local Food and Sustainable Living has its way, grapes won’t be the only local product getting a ‘value-added’ lift when its turned into wine and its value increases as much as five fold.

Those committed to growing the local farm movement - even stinging nettle - want land and infrastructure to nurture other Washington grown produce.
