Hulbert Family History
In 1909 James Hulbert Sr. and his family moved from Fontanelle Iowa to the flats of Skagit Valley, Washington. He soon established a stock and dairy farm, LaConner Flat Stock Farm, where he raised Holsteins.
Ten years later he sold his cattle and transitioned into growing row crops at Hulbert Farm. He was among one of the first Washington farmers to grow strawberries and peas commercially.
In the late 1940's James's two sons, Robert and James Jr. joined the operation after completing their educations at WSU and serving in WWII. They continued farming strawberries, broccoli, cauliflower, vegetable seed, and later got into daffodil bulbs.
Robert Hulbert had five children who grew up working on the farm. They all graduated from WSU and continued their career paths in various agricultural fields.
Robert's son Michael, and grandson Dane want to continue the family tradition of farming and established Our Family Farm LLC in 2017.
