Herb farmer, processor, grower and community herbalist

Five Hearts Farm is a 17 acre farm located in East Olympia, Washington owned by Don and Jennifer McMaster. One acre is dedicated to growing a wide variety of vegetables, fruit, and medicinal herbs using organic farming practices. In addition, we have 6 cows and 50 free range chickens. In two years, the farm has grown from feeding friends and family, to supplying our granddaughter’s farmer’s market booth “Laura’s Market” in Montesano, to participating in the Southwest Washington Food Hub.

Don and Jen McMaster bought this farm in 2018 to create an environment to grow vibrant food, demonstrate sustainable farming techniques, and bring people together. Don has always had a passion for gardening, inspired first by his grandpa in Montana who was a successful organic farmer before people talked much about that. He grew up in a family that had big families, and needed to grow plants and animals to feed their family. Jen has been gathering weeds and wildflowers since she was a kid, and is now immersed in learning the healing properties of plant based medicine and healing foods. People don’t let us say we’re “retired” anymore – this is clearly a new career! The skills learned in each of their former careers in Mechanical Engineering come in handy.

The name Five Hearts Farm has many levels of meaning. Primarily it represents how it is a family run farm. Jen’s sister Gretchen Robinson has gardened all her life and considers it a dream come true to help create this garden haven. She starts most of the plants by seed in her greenhouse and brings them to the farm as beautiful vibrant new starts, and her husband Tom provides muscle, mechanical and moral support. Her daughter Johanna Batchelor, and kids James and Haida, come regularly to the farm and bring joy and hard work and passion. And in the summer of 2020 Don and Jen’s granddaughter Laura (with the help of her dedicated parents) started a farmer’s market booth to sell produce from the farm.

Another meaning of “five hearts” is related to worms – they have five hearts! The worm compost they create, and the tea we “brew” from it, do amazing things for the soil and the root structure of our plants.
