I've got some really fun news to share this morning!

As you no doubt know by now, Hungry Hollow's mission is to provide a local, pasture-based alternative to factory farms here in Western Washington. 

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:


Mt. Joy is a collaboration with Chef Ethan Stowell, and it's all about creating incredible products from foods produced within regenerative agricultural contexts. And what better place to start than a delicious chicken sandwich?


This weekend is Mt. Joy's first ever "pop-up" and it's happening at Tavolata on Capitol Hill.

We'll be serving up delicious pasture-raised chicken sandwiches from Hungry Hollow on Friday, and sandwiches from four other incredible local farms also raising chickens on pastures on Saturday and Sunday. 

Pre-orders are encouraged and can be placed @

We'll be open:

  • Fri, 10/14/22: 4p - 9p
  • Sat, 10/15/22: 11a - 9p
  • Sun, 10/16/22: 11a - 9p

I'll be there all day every day. Be sure to say hi and we can cheers our sandwiches to another small but sure step towards a future free of factory farms!

Beauty & Truth in Modern Agriculture

The lack of beauty and truth in modern agriculture is not a benign side effect of efficient production. In the short term, it represents a design flaw to be overcome. 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.

How to End Factory Farming

... factory farming is not inevitable, despite its prominence in America today. Even a generation ago the food system for animals looked totally different than it does now. The products that we see in the markets and the farms dotting the landscape are the outcome of a very intentional process, mostly by a small handful of very large meat companies, to produce a system that predominantly benefits them.
