1. Longtime Elma Farmer Nourishes Land and Wildlife

Elma farmer Jay Gordon farms about 900 acres of land off of U.S. Highway 12 in Elma. On this rainy morning in mid-October, Gordon was getting ready to harvest the remainder of his corn crop before the rain ruined it.

One of the treasures of Grays Harbor County are the wild salmon who return each year to spawn in the area’s streams and rivers. This story profiles a fourth generation farmer whose dedication to dairy farming on his family’s Elma acreage is matched by his commitment to salmon conservation on the Chehalis River running through his land.

‘Tis the season….to put on your boots and hats and head to the muddy fields of a local tree farm in search of the perfect tree. I always choose one that is too tall, so I’ll be taking my tape measure this year. If you haven’t already ventured out to cut your tree yet, use Amira Umphres list of local options and make a family memory that may turn into an annual tradition.
