Our 65 hens are here in the valley where they are forest grazed, free to roam, vegetarian fed (except for bugs and worms), antibiotic free, happy, healthy, chirpy birds. We only feed our girls all-natural and animal-free feed, organic veggie scraps and organic mushroom stumps care of Hood River Organic. This way, the eggs they produce are as healthy for you as they possibly can be.
Started by my daughter and I two years ago in hood river. We are now located in White Salmon, WA.
On our family operated farm, run on organic and sustainable principles, we produce all things redworms and worm castings, and available in any quantity to you! This allows us to grow and produce our fine and unique pestos, and grow peppers, peashoots, sunflower shoots, moringa, Chinese water spinach, as well as more traditional veggies some grown in our aquaponics system (fish available soon), and some traditional garden style. We have quail eggs from our hardy flock of coturnix quail. We also produce tastey edible insects: mealworms and banded crickets.
Eggs are my main product. Free range, vegetarian feed, lots of indoor barn space for the winter, no medications except initial vaccinations, chickens that are free to live chicken lives. The door is opened in the morning and they come and go as they please until they put themselves to roost at night.
We practice regenerative agriculture, raising heritage breed livestock and heirloom specialty crops. We improve our pastures, soils, streams, and forests every year through rotational multi-species grazing and dryland-farming with no irrigation. We use only natural methods to manage the health of our plants, animals, and the people they nourish — GMO-free, antibiotic-free, chemical-free.
We offer Lorna Butte Natural Spring Lambs and 4H raised hogs. Monthly processing date starting in May through October. Wild plums, eggs and other garden produce available this season. Fall display pumpkins “extra large” ready in October. Stop by for a farm visit while in Goldendale, WA. For more information visit our site: http://gorgegrown.com/lefever_holbrook_ranch.pdf
The Big Barn Farm is a small family operated CSA hoping to grow larger in the future. We also sell vegetables and berries at the Trout Lake Saturday Market, and have grass fed Angus beef available every November. Free range chicken eggs are available throughout the year. Our land was previously cerfified as organic by Oregon Tilth, but we just have not transferred the organic status to our name yet. We are taking this summer off (traveling), but will still have beef this fall and will be operating in full swing next spring (2009).
Tuckered Out Farm is a small, friendly membership-based farm providing produce and eggs to its members in the Hood River/Odell/Mt. Hood area. Our members enjoy fresh vegetables, flowers, fruit, and eggs June through September.
