We sell pasture raised eggs and grass-fed meats. In addition we make Icelandic Lopi yarn and farm soaps and salves.
Green Bow Farm is a small family farm that focuses on multi-species rotational grazing to produce nutrient dense eggs and grass-fed meats. What does that mean? It means we rotate chickens, pigs, sheep, and cattle on pasture daily in a way that creates healthy soil and in turn healthy animals. From this regenerative farm model we produce eggs with golden yolks, pasture raised chicken and pork, 100% grass-fed lamb and beef, a variety of Icelandic sheep fiber goods including traditional Lopi yarn, Grass-fed tallow and herbal soaps, salves, and medicinal and culinary herbs.
We are currently refurbishing our farms old dairy barn and turning it into a commercial kitchen and farm store. Stay tuned on our facebook or our webpage for details about the store opening which is just a 5 minute drive from downtown Ellensburg. Find us on Facebook, Instagram.
CSA details: We have a grass-fed meat CSA that will be available in the Summer and Fall of 2017. Please go to our website to sign up for the mailing list that sends out CSA updates.
Farming practices: We are dedicated to managing grazing in a way that builds topsoil and looks at the farm and the animals as a whole system of important parts that work together to sustain the health of the entire farm. Our chickens peck and scratch at the cow manure in the pasture helping fertilize, keeping the pastures healthy, and in turn making their eggs incredibly rich and nutrient dense as they have free choice to eat grass, bugs, and soak up Vitamin D from the sun. We use the pigs' grazing abilities on pastures to clear out weeds, till up fields and fertilize areas we want to plant vegetables or just reseed for new grazing paddocks.
In addition we don't spray pesticides or give our animals antibiotics or hormones, and they live on pasture 12 months of the year. Our garden where we grow herbs and tomatoes for market is pesticide free as well. Building community and meeting the people we raise food for is one of the best job perks of being farmers.
