Our daughter was diagnosed with food allergies at a young age. After many hours of research we decided to take the plunge from a vegetarian world into a new and daunting omnivorous one. This step was overwhelming, our daughter had been a vegetarian since birth so this meant some soul searching had to take place. The next few months were a whirl wind of new terms; grass fed, hormone free, cage free, pastured, what did it all mean for us and for the animals? We felt lost and quickly realized that if we were going to thrive in body and soul in this new world we had to start raising our own meat. So here we are, finally at home in the Willamette Valley, overlooking a small pasture brimming with possibilities. Each year we fall in love with every batch of chicks we pick up, our pigs all have names before they step foot on the farm and our turkeys get first class choir practice with our daughter, the conductor. This is how we navigate a meat eating world, with compassion and respect for every animal in our care. We are blessed to have the opportunity to raise animals in this beautiful state we call home.
Our animals are raised on pasture full time, foraging, rooting, and soaking up the sun which translates to meat with higher levels of omega-3s, vitamins A,C, and E, beta-carotene, lower cholesterol, and superior texture and flavor. Happy animals = happy meat. We are proud to supplement our animals with Non-GMO corn and soy free feed from a small local mill.
