The History of Greenbank Farm
The land that would become the Greenbank Farm was originally settled by Danish immigrants who were drawn to Whidbey Island for its fertile soil and picturesque landscapes. They established a dairy farm on the property and began producing dairy products for the local community.
The farm continued to operate as a dairy farm throughout the Great Depression and World War II. During this time, it was one of the largest dairy farms on Whidbey Island and played a significant role in supplying dairy products to the region.
In the 1950s, the dairy industry on Whidbey Island began to decline, and the Greenbank Farm underwent a transition. It was converted into a turkey farm, and later, a loganberry farm. At one time Greenbank Farm was the largest producer of loganberries in the United States
The farm changed ownership several times during this period, with different owners attempting various agricultural ventures, including berry farming and livestock. None of these endeavors proved particularly successful in the long term.
Concerns about the future of the Greenbank Farm led to community discussions about its preservation. In 1997, the Port of Coupeville acquired the property to ensure its conservation and economic revitalization. The Port of Coupeville, in collaboration with local nonprofit organizations and community members, embarked on an ambitious project to transform the Greenbank Farm into a vibrant, sustainable, and publicly accessible space. The farm became home to a variety of businesses and organizations, including art galleries, shops, a café, and a market. The Greenbank Farm also developed walking trails and public spaces for community events.
