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.

To celebrate these farms, we're launching...


Better Meat Washington will be bringing you stories of farms throughout Washington who, like us, are raising animals in ecologically, nutritionally, and ethically sound ways. 

If you're interested in the work we're doing here at Hungry Hollow, I think you'll be very interested in Better Meat Washington.  You can follow along on Instagram + Facebook.

Marketers are tasked with painting over the truth, and laws are passed to limit public visibility into these operations. These techniques have propped up the system so far. But make no mistake, in the long run, the combination of ugliness and deception is the system’s Achilles’ heel.

Mt. Joy

Since 2018, we've served thousands of customers and we continue to expand our production of pasture raised chickens to meet the local demand. But the truth is, we've still got a LONG way to go before this type of farming becomes the rule, rather than the exception. With this in mind, we've partnered with an incredible team based in Seattle to begin generating more local awareness of regenerative farming practices. This team is called Mt. Joy:
