The farm is at 11323 296th Ave. NE, Carnation, WA 98014, which is about halfway between Carnation and Duvall in the Snoqualmie Valley. If that doesn’t mean anything to you we’re basically 25 miles east of downtown Seattle, beyond the suburbs in unincorporated King County.

Most major navigation apps, including Google Maps, will get you to us without problem--though the turn onto our road comes up fast and makes it worth reviewing directions before you start out. 

From the North

If you’re coming from the north (via 520, or through Duvall), 296th is 2.8 miles south of the roundabout at 124th. You’ll pass two signs for Oxbow Organic Farm, then just ¼ mile before the turn there will be a red and white barn on the left, and a sign for Sno-Valley Tilth on the right. Slow down as you round the curve and watch for a cluster of white reflector posts on the left. That’s 296th.

From the South

If you come from the south, through Carnation, watch for the Stillwater Store. The turn is exactly one mile north. When you pass Fay Road slow down, 296th is the next turn on the right just around the curve… again watch for the cluster of white reflector posts.

Once you are on 296th continue up the hill and keep left at the fork. When you pass under the power lines our property will be on your left. Drive past Cole’s garden, etc. in the pasture, and turn left into the driveway just past the black and white striped mailbox.
