About 37 years ago, Sarah and I met in agriculture classes at Washington State University. We learned about conventional agriculture and met many students preparing to take over the family farms and orchards but we had no farm to return to. Over the past 20 years Larry has consulted with and worked for food processors and industrial ag operations. In 2008 we had an organic nirvana moment and have since switched to organic practices for our farming. In 2012 we purchased a home on 10.25 acres of prime farmland in Orting WA and are excited about the opportunity to expand our operation. Currently, we have two cows on pasture followed by 400 pastured laying hens in a leader – follower intensive grazing rotation. We are expanding into the pastured broilers production in 2016. We have planted 3900 blueberry bushes and installed trellis and drip irrigation systems. The blueberries should begin to bear in 2017. We direct-market our products within the local community, Additionally, since we believe that investment in healthy eating is an investment in long-term health, we donate a portion of our production to our local food bank. We hope that, for those living under great financial stress, such as many food bank clients, healthy organic food will be a step along a better path for them.
Our mission: “To provide organic, high-quality, flavorful and nutrient-dense blueberries, pastured meats and eggs for consumption within a 100 mile radius of Pierce County, Washington.”
