Cloudview was originally founded in Royal City, WA in 2006 by Jim Baird, long time farmer and resident of the Columbia Basin.   Jim is an advocate of natural, healthy eating and gardening practices and his desire to share that with his community led him to found Cloudview Farm in Ephrata, WA in the Spring of 2012. 

As a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, we strive to help nourish the community, provide fresh food to those who need it most, and nurture young minds with our education programs.

Cultivating community is important to us here at Cloudview Farm.  We strive to empower our local community to bloom and flourish by connecting students and families to their natural environment through education, locally grown food and community events.

Cloudview Farm provides hands-on environmental and gardening educational opportunities right here on our farm based interactive classroom.  We strive to grow a healthy community by hosting events and offering opportunities to grow and strengthen community bonds.

We encourage nourishing your body with locally grown organic produce from our farm.  And, we promote community involvement through our collaboration with other local businesses in an effort to support sustainable farming where we can all thrive.  Shop at our Farm Store and join us for our weekly Farmers’ Market!
