we're excited to welcome you back to the farm in 2022!
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.
New in 2022: We will be open the 4th Saturday in Summer forBands @ the Barn, an evening of outdoor live music + burgers, brats & brews, as well as outdoor activities open for kids. Tickets now available!

We are excited to introduce an evening of food, drinks & live music we're calling Bands @ the Barn the 4th Saturday in June, July & August from 5:30p - 9:30p, with outdoor live music starting at 7p.
Grab your family and friends for a fun night out enjoying burgers, brats & brews in the beer barn and soaking up the evening sun, while supporting local musicians from our region.
Paid admission required, children 2 & under free. The Bounce Pillow, Zip Swings, Trike Track & Busy Bee Playground will be open.
Sadly, the unusually wet weather conditions experienced in the spring hit our farm especially hard this year. Though we re-planted the flower fields in an effort to salvage the crop and pushed back the dates to September, the wet ground stunted their growth too much for them to catch up and mature in time. With a heavy heart we must cancel our 2022 Sunflower Experience :(
We hope you will continue to support our family farm, and we look forward to bringing you back to the sunflowers next year.
Our Sunflower Experience includes a wagon ride out to 5-acres of beautiful sunflowers (25+ varieties) with unique photo props set among the fields, plus one u-cut bloom to take home. Find our new giant swing and oversized wooden chair perfect for family portraits. The Zip Swings, Bounce Pillow, Trike Track & Busy Bee Playground will be open for kids to enjoy, and our Tasty Treats kitchen will be serving homemade food & beverages.
