Amazingly, King County has drawn up plan to sell land to the largest landowner in the Snoqualmie Valley — a confinement dairy that uses GMOs, Roundup and synthetic fertilizers — rather than to Seattle Tilth.
A King County Council committee will vote Thursday on the sale of the Tall Chief Golf Course to Keller Dairy, already the area’s largest landowner.
King County bought the property in 2013 for about $4.5 million to save it from development.
Despite a strong proposal from the highly respected non-profit Seattle Tilth, the county’s Natural Resources and Parks Department decided to sell the land for roughly $700,000 to expand the dairy.
