Drizzlewood Farm is a particularly scenic 100-acre mix of pasture, oak savannah, forest and wetland located just south of Molalla, Oregon in the Cascade foothills. It’s the realization of a long-held dream for our family.
We’re learning how to produce great tasting, healthy food using sustainable, pasture-friendly practices. Currently, the farm produces grass-fed, grass-finished beef; free-range, heritage turkeys; eggs and honey.
Our animals are given no antibiotics, steroids or growth hormones. Throughout the year, we move cattle from pasture to pasture to give them the best available grass while improving field condition and health. When needed, we feed them hay cut on the farm. The only grain they get is used in training them to follow us from field to field. (We don’t drive ‘em, we lead‘em!) Slaughter is done on the farm to avoid the stresses of capture and transport.
Wetland areas and creeks have been fenced off to protect them from cattle damage and a creekside restoration project is underway with the planting of some 2,000 trees and shrubs.
