Our Short Story: In 2002-'03 Tyler spent a year at Polyface Farm in Virginia as an intern with sustainable farmer extraordinaire Joel Salatin. When Tyler returned to Corvallis Oregon he started Afton Field Farm on about 10 acres. We now own and manage 106 acres using Joel's methods raising pastured poultry (for eggs and meat), grass-fed beef, oak savanna pork, turkey, lamb, and bees for honey, as well as baked goods (all products subject to availability).
Farming Methods: All of our animals are raised on pasture or in the woods using Managed Intensive Rotational Grazing methods. The beef and lamb are strictly grass fed from birth to slaughter and all other animals, layer chickens, broiler chickens, hogs, & turkeys, get a large part of their diet from the pasture and woods. They are also supplemented with custom grain mixes.
Processing: We process all of our poultry on-farm at our beautiful, State (ODA) licensed, open-air facility, and the large animals are butchered by Wes at S&S Custom Slaughter, between Albany and Jefferson, OR. If you would like to see any of the butchering process or just want to see the good life these animals live, please feel free to come visit at any time!
Marketing: We market to individual families, the Corvallis Saturday Farmers Market, restaurants in the Corvallis and Portland areas, and buying clubs from Corvallis to Portland. During the summer we provide pasture-walk tours of the farm and Tyler lectures and speaks at universities, conferences and workshops throughout the year. (Please call for lecture fees).
Thank you for your interest and we hope to see you soon at the farm!
