Chef Jason Wilson

Chef Jason Wilson’s Modern American Cuisine has garnered award and notice from across the nation and beyond as his restaurant, CRUSH, has grown over the past 6 years. Named “Best Chef Northwest 2010” from the James Beard Foundation and one of Food & Wines “Best New Chefs 2006,” Jason continues to innovate and lead the culinary movement in the Northwest.

A passion for the highest quality ingredients and the very best techniques are the foundation for his cuisine. Embracing a modern sensibility, he works closely with farmers, growers and producers in the Northwest to find the best seasonal offerings. 

Jason opened Crush in 2005 with his wife and business partner, Nicole Wilson.     

Dan and Kim Hulse, Tahoma Farms

Kim and Dan Hulse are “first generation” family farmers who combine marketing savvy with a passion for the land as part of a pioneering effort to re-vitalize agriculture in Western Washington.

Dan learned the produce industry as a warehouse manager for Organically Grown Company, one of our region’s largest organic produce distributors. The couple met in 2003 while working at Terry’s Berries in the Puyallup Valley. The following year they leased five acres of land near Enumclaw in east King County to begin their own farm, and they started Terra Organics, a home delivery service to provide a market for their crops and select produce from other organic farms.

With their hands-on farming experience and background in organic produce marketing, in 2009 Kim and Dan made the bold step of purchasing one of three parcels at Orting Valley Farms, a 100-acre former dairy preserved by the PCC Farmland Trust in collaboration with the Washington State Wildlife & Recreation Program and Pierce County Conservation Futures Program. The PCC Farmland Trust secured a conservation easement on the land, ensuring that it is saved for organic production forever and making it affordable to a new generation of farmers.
