Hedlin Farms, Mt. Vernon, WA

Rasmus Koudal would leave his homeland of Denmark and head to America for a better life. He landed at the mouth of the Skagit River, right in the heart of Skagit Valley in 1906 and decided to call this home.

In 1974, Dave Hedlin & Serena Campbell took up the farming on this family land. They grew fresh market beets, broccoli, cabbage seed, cauliflower, peas, and pickling cucumbers. The land and the weather are well suited to seed production and plant vernalization. This has enabled the Hedlin Farms to provide their family and many others market fresh produce for over 100 years.
