Our Farm

Foothill Farm is a certified Organic family farm that grows grass-fed beef and hay, vegetables, fruit, herbs, flowers and seed in St Ignatius, Montana. We specialize in an array of vegetables and herbs, including tomatoes, squash, lettuce, beets, garlic, and potatoes.   The farm is 70 acres made up of hay fields, pasture, 7 acres of vegetable and herb gardens, an orchard, three hoop houses, a large propagation greenhouse, packing sheds and coolers.  This farm is located on the Flathead Reservation, home to Kootenai, Pend d'Oreille and Salish people.

After working on several other similar, small farms, Julie started farming here in 2004. Along with loads of help from family, especially her dad, Tom, there have been incredible farm crews throughout the many years, in addition to lots of friends and neighbors helping in countless ways.

All of the farm’s pastures, hay fields, vegetables, seeds, and fruit are certified Organic by the Montana Department of Agriculture. We implement composting, crop rotation, cover cropping, rotational grazing and other sustainable practices.  One of the most important parts of our farm is the livestock that is integrated into the system.  

Here on Foothill Farm we enjoy the opportunity to grow delicious, healthy food for the local community and working with family, friends and fellow farmers.
