At Farm Shed our background is farming. Our family has a rich history of working the ground in the Puyalllup Valley and dairy farming on Connells Prairie. At the end of the day, the farm life is not just about tulips and holsteins grazing in green pastures. It is about beliefs and values that have been passed down through generations. It is about ensuring things are left better for those yet to come. For us, it’s all about the legacy.
We search high and low to bring our customers only the highest quality wines, and we know that quality begins in the vineyard. The winemakers we call friends, are dedicated to the grape from harvest until bottling and the passion pours itself from the bottle.
We love pouring this passion every Thursday through Sunday in our countryside tasting room located in Buckley, Washington. Join us for a flight of wine, choose wines from our menu that changes weekly or if you know what you like select a glass or bottle to enjoy with friends and family. While you are sipping select pairings from our cheese and charcuterie menu. With several artisanal products, such as antipasti, we can help you create the perfect pairing!
Check out our newest project, Farm Shed Brew! For two years the Farm Shed family has been working towards the Farm Shed Brew project an idea that transpired right here on the farm.
After we opened our tasting room in 2016 and introduced wine flights to our customers and the endless possibilities of trying new and upcoming wines from the Northwest, we had a large demand for glass pours and onsite bottle consumption.
Brewery talk was only here and there at this point, but knowing our customers wanted more we wanted to give it to them. 2017 was the year, in February Madeline began designing the facility and by May the foundation was poured. In August of 2017 licensing was complete and we began offering glass pours and bottles for consumption onsite that were now included in our new licensing.
In the 1940s the entire Puyallup Valley was planted in hops and the ‘Hop King’ Ezra Meeker was selling them worldwide. Much of the plateau and Buckley were planted in hops as well, including Vern Anderson and Son Dairy at one time. We are excited to bring estate grown hops back to the plateau and to Western Washington where the history of hop farming in Washington state began. Madeline has cut rhizomes from the Kelly Farm where hops still grow wild from the 40s and hopes to cultivate them on the Farm Shed property. Most importantly, Madeline will apply her knowledge of winemaking and the chemistry of fermentation science to Farm Shed Brew to create one of a kind brews.
