Bainbridge Island Farms Over the last two decades, Bainbridge Island has been rapidly moving away from its rural roots, our strawberry fields and great forests giving way to home sites. The farms and commercial gardens listed below are now nearly all that stands between suburbia and us. At the same time, there is hope in the efforts of local organizations and the city to preserve farmland and promote local agriculture. Even more hopeful is the commitment of out farms to the land and their way of life. And now new farmers are joining old timers in the practice of what is being called “urban agriculture”—small farms intertwined with development in a mutually beneficial relationship. Urban agriculture on Bainbridge Island is alive and well, providing our community with food quality and security, as well as the rural landscapes we treasure. You can help ensure that it continues.
