Couple Farms Herbs and Mushrooms Under Managed Forest

Couple Farms Herbs and Mushrooms Under Managed Forest

By Mariah Cornwoman, Twin Tails Farm, Tonasket, WA

Even before we purchased our property, we had a checklist of environmental parameters that we were looking for. We wanted a piece with a number of small environmental niches and species diversity. We wanted both conifer and hardwood species in the forest. We have a perennial, spring-fed creek that runs o­n the diagonal across our land. We have ponderosa pine and open sage o­n the dry, southwest-facing slope. We have Douglas fir and tamarack with fescue meadows o­n the moist, northeast-facing slope. And there are several deciduous species including aspen, douglas maple and water birch along the riparian zone of the creek, with a number of small benches outside the no-cut zone.
