Featured Farmer - David Youngquist, Program Manager & Field Educator

During my visit to Viva Farms in Burlington, WA, on Friday July 1st one of the people I met was David Youngquist, a humble and very likeable young guy whose family has been farming for over 100 years. Family happily ties David to agriculture and the challenges of farming keep him keeping on.

Viva Farms is a joint venture of WSU Extension &, an international non-profit dedicated to helping new farmers get started by providing land, equipment and infrastructure, education, training and technical assistance (bilingual- Eng/Esp), marketing and distribution support and start-up loans.

We can support Viva Farms with tax deductible donations, subscribing to getting CSA food boxes, and volunteering all of which can be done at their website.
