More about White Lotus Farm & Space Twins Provisions: White Lotus Farm & Inn is a collaborative space committed to regenerative land practices that aim to build healthy soil and support thriving habitats for the animals, humans, insects, microbes, and fungi that live here (now and for generations to come). On site, there is a collective of distinct but symbiotic small businesses that help manage the land and workload of life on a farm. White Lotus Farm was established in 2017 in Port Ludlow on 70 acres in fertile Beaver Valley. Farmers Niall and Natalie purchased an old sheep farm and currently operate the farm as not only an event space, but also raise livestock; grow flowers; perennial fruits, nuts and vegetables; operate a bed and breakfast; bake and sell fresh sourdough bread and much more. Space Twins Provisions is a no-till produce + flower operation run by a husband and wife duo: Cass and Jules. They launched Space Twins in Spring 2020 in Discovery Bay, WA. After a successful first season, they are now thrilled to grow seasonal produce, herbs, and flowers at our Space Station aka White Lotus Farm & Inn. Together, both businesses operate Space Lotus Floral Collective, a small flower farm and floral design studio located at White Lotus Farm. They grow stunning flowers and produce lush designs for a variety of different facets including: retail, CSA, wedding and special events.
