Last year Lake City resident Bill Farhat was profiled in The Seattle Times Pacific Northwest Magazine. The publication named Farhat the “Fig King.” The native of Lebanon has a yard described by The Times as “ringed with grape leaves, planted with Persian plums and packed with his prized fig trees.”
Well the fruit of all Farhat’s labor is ready —early this year— and the Fig King is ready to share his backyard bounty. He is asking $4 per pound for the delicious figs from his 35 trees. You can read more from Farhat below.
I have 35 trees in my backyard. (I’d probably have more, but there’s no more space).
I’m writing today because I would love to share my Desert King figs with others in the Lake City and surrounding community. They are ripe!
They are 10 days early this year, due to our incredible warm weather. Come get em! (If you want to plant a tree in your own backyard, I can help you with that, too).
I sell figs for $4/pound. Email firstname.lastname@example.org or call 206-363-0121
If you stop by and get some of his figs, make sure to let us know how you dished them up in the comments section below.
