Jardin du Soleil, Dungeness Valley Creamery and Nash’s Farm Store have partnered to create a billboard on US Highway 101 to encourage passersby to “Explore Dungeness!” to both raise more awareness of how beautiful the Dungeness area is and to encourage more people to visit their locations.
Owners of each of the three Dungeness businesses worked on the creative process with artist-sign maker Melissa Klein, who said she was inspired by the Olympic Mountains and the Sequim-Dungeness Valley farmland.
The vinyl billboard, located just east of Mill Road near Carlsborg, is 48 feet long and 10 feet high, and was posted in early June.
Lavender farm Jardin du Soleil is a participant in the Lavender Weekend and hosts music concerts and other events during the summer.
Dungeness Valley Creamery is a raw-milk dairy with a petting area with baby calves and a shop with local products and ice cream.
Nash’s Farm Store is a full-grocery health store featuring produce, dairy and artisan baked goods from several local producers, as well as a Children’s Corner.
