Celebrate the Seasons at Schilter Family Farm
With over 25 years of growing family memories, Schilter Family Farm is the place to make family traditions in the South Sound. For over 80 years, 4 generations of Schilter’s have farmed and shaped the Nisqually Valley from a dairy farm into the agritourism farm it is today. Jeff, Stephanie, their family, friends and staff work hard to create good old fashioned fun for families in our community to enjoy.
