R Heritage Farm - Pasture Raised Berkshire Pork & Heritage Poultry


We are a small family farm located in the Sky Valley, and we proudly specialize in raising rare heritage breed chickens, ducks, turkeys, and Berkshire hogs the good old fashioned way...roaming freely on organic pasture and woodlands. Our farm's focus is to provide our customers, and ourselves, with all natural, safe, and delicious pork and poultry with an emphasis on providing an environment and lifestyle that allows our animals to live a happy and healthy life. We offer a year-round meat CSA where you choose your own items, and we sell at various farmer's markets within the Puget Sound.

Our Products: We raise a special and rare heritage breed of pig - The Berkshire. This is a unique breed that is very different from other breeds in terms of meat characteristics and quality. Berkshire pork is essentially the pork equivalent of Kobe beef, and it has a rich flavored taste, deep coloring, and fine marbling which is akin to high grade beef. We sell our hogs whole or by the half, and in USDA inspected & packaged cuts at various farmer's markets or through our year-round CSA.

We also sell fresh and frozen heritage chicken either whole or in a variety of cuts, whole roasting ducks, and farm fresh chicken and duck eggs from our free range hens.

This year we will begin offering a limited supply of strawberries and vegetables which are meant to compliment our meat CSA program.

Our Practices: Our animals are raised in their natural environment and are never caged or confined, and never fed antibiotics, hormones, or growth promotants of any kind. They forage on organic pasture, are supplemented (free choice) with certified NON-GMO grains, orchard grass, and treated to fresh seasonal fruits and vegetables from our organic garden.

We have excellent animal husbandry practices, and we treat our animals humanely and kindly. Our pigs are bred naturally, and we never use gestation or farrowing crates. They are free to root, wallow, and play wherever they choose. Our poultry are not housed in "portable tractors" or "pens on grass" - they have unrestricted access to roam freely on our pasture. All of our animals are truly free ranging, and we let our animals be...well...animals.
