We use rotational grazing practices and our pastures are maintained without the use of chemical fertilizers, herbicides, or pesticides. Our lambs live their entire lives on our ranch and are grown without grains, GMO feed, antibiotics, hormones or other drugs. We interact with our animals daily and treat them with kindness and respect. Lambs are harvested on our ranch then transported to local butchers for custom cut and wrap.
Grazing, Pasture and Nutrient Management Practices
We raise a limited number of animals on our small acreage, ensuring that our pastures and browse areas can support healthy soils and animals. We hand clear noxious weeds twice a year and use certified organic fertilizers and soil amendments to condition our soils. We are in the process of re-working our non-irrigated pastures with dryland pasture mix and intend to replant a portion of our land every year.
We use livestock guardian dogs to deter predation from mountain lion, coyote and bear. We are taking steps to restore our oak savanna habitat, promoting a healthy environment for a multitude of Oregon’s native birds.
