Deck Family Farm is a 320-acre organic farm in Oregon’s Willamette Valley. We raise cows, sheep, pigs, chickens, and turkeys on grass pastures, providing a natural habitat that mimics what their wild ancestors lived in.
Pasture raised animals not only live a more stress free life than their confinement-fed counterparts, but they also grow to provide a tastier and healthier meat.
As a certified organic operation, we rely on natural cycles to build soil fertility and never use hormones or antibiotics. Our commitment to you is to raise the healthiest, happiest animals possible and we believe that, in turn, these animals will provide you with great nutrition and amazing taste.
