we're excited to welcome you our farm in 2023

Celebrate the Seasons at Schilter Family Farm

Schilter Family Farm is the place to make family traditions in the South Sound.  For over 80 years and spanning 4 generations, the Schilter family has farmed and shaped the Nisqually Valley from a dairy farm into the agritourism farm it is today.  Over the past 25+ years, Jeff, Stephanie, their family, friends and staff have worked hard to create good old fashioned fun for families in our community to enjoy.

Don't forget to come hungry and enjoy a seasonal selection of food & beverages, including cider donuts & fudge from the Sweet Shack.
