Demand for better meat in Washington is on the rise, and our little farm will simply not be able to keep up.
What is needed is a rich fabric of locally-adapted and economically-viable farms stewarding the land and producing better meat for their local communities.
Thankfully, the tide is shifting. There are already hundreds of farmers in Washington raising animals in ways that are better for us, better for our planet, and better for the animals.
These farmers are putting animals outside on grass. They're moving them around in ways that mimic the natural movement of wild animals. They're building top soil, sequestering carbon, and encouraging biologically diverse landscapes that grow more abundant with each passing year.
Oh, and they're selling their better meat directly to their neighbors.
