June 10 update: We are temporarily closed due to Covid19 restrictions. It would be difficult for us to meet the current guidelines for sanitation and distancing. We can arrange pickup or shipping of willow baskets. Please email us if you would like to schedule an appointment. Thank you.
Our willow is grown in an environmentally friendly way; our baskets are handcrafted to be durable and heirloom quality.
We have been growing using organic methods since we began farming in 1982. We started our own business in 1990 selling to restaurants in Seattle and at the Pike Place Market using the name ‘Lombrici’s’. Since 1994 we have been growing here in the Skagit Valley as Dunbar Gardens. Although we were some of the pioneers of the ‘farm to table’ movement, we now primarily sell willow baskets handcrafted by Katherine Lewis. It’s what we like to call ‘farm to basket’ in the Pacific Northwest.
