Our farm is located in the foothills of Mt. Hood in Boring, OR U.S.A. We have a warm summer Mediterranean climate, and enjoy a temperate climate being located in the first valley behind the coastal mountain range on the Pacific ocean. You will find a bit more on the climate in which our farm is located in the tables below.
We are a year round Pasture based farm operation raising Angus-X beef, chicken, heritage pigs, and turkey. Prior to our stewardship our farm had been idle for more than 20 years. Since implementing our polyculture based Regenerative Agriculture farm practices, our pasture land has seen profound and positive changes in biodiversity and productivity over our 5 year tenure. In addition, we are highly influenced by the Organic, Permaculture, Biodynamic, Keyline Design, and Holistic Management land management and animal care practices.
We do not use any pesticides, herbicides, insecticides, fungicides or any chemicals on our pasture lands. We do not use any antibiotics or hormones. We strive to be completely GMO, corn and soy free in our supplement feed. We utilize high quality Organic vegetable waste as supplemental animal feed and to assist in rapidly building soil fertility.
