The Bluebird Team

Making great food available to family, friends, and community.

Meet Our Founders

Brooke and Sam Lucy met while walking their dogs on a Methow Valley road years ago, within sight of the scenic spot where the Bluebird granary eventually started operations. Bluebird is a family business that was started in 2005. Brooke and Sam saw a niche for growing and processing ancient grains. Now, Emmer, Einkorn and Spelt have become their signature grains, and Brooke and Sam have set the gold standard for nutrient-dense whole grains, freshly milled flour, and dry product blends.

Bluebird Grain Farms has expanded to a state-of-the-art processing facility in Winthrop and works with two other organic farms to help provide a consistent supply of top quality, nutritious grains for a growing customer base.

Sam Lucy

Owner/Operator
Farm & Processing Systems

Sam co-founded Bluebird in 2005 after farming here in the Methow Valley for the previous 12 years. He became a certified organic grain grower in 2000. Sam still enjoys the two cornerstones of the business: farming and custom milling, but he has grown to enjoy customer relations as well, since there are so many great customers! When not working Sam loves spending time with his daughters, friends, and other family. He loves to read, write, bike, hike, ski, and hunt with his Labs. And EAT!

Brooke Lucy

Owner/Operator
Marketing, Sales, Product Development

The best food comes in simple forms. Brooke believes that people deserve access to pure, clean food. She takes pride in growing and offering organic ancient grain products that require minimal water and high nutritional value.  Brooke loves her work in an entrepreneurial environment and bringing nutritious, farm direct grains to the marketplace. When not at work Brooke enjoys cooking, adventuring in the North Cascade Mountains, and spending time with her family and friends.

Western Blue Bird

A Symbol of Health

Bluebirds appear in the Methow Valley during spring when it’s time to plant our crops. They stay for the growing season and take off around harvest time.

For us, bluebirds are a reminder that every single thing we do as farmers is connected to—and impacts—the environment at large. We believe that nutritious food produced from nature is the cornerstone of a healthy community. And we take pride in making great food available to our friends, our neighbors, and you.
