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.
