Ryan Family Farm
- Home Delivery,
Situated in beautiful Graham, Washington within view of Mt. Rainier, we believe in growing real food for real people. Our vision is to become a model of sustainable, small-scale organic farming in Pierce County. We produce high quality food using sustainable agriculture practices. We are stewards of scarce natural resources and believe that strengthening the connection between producers and consumers can improve quality of life for people and community. We raise chicken, Ameraucana, Austrolorp, Barred Rocks, Black Star, Buff Brahma, Cukoo Marans, New Hampshire Red, and Rhode Island Red laying hens. They are all fed non-GMO, organic feed from Scratch and Peck feeds in Bellingham, WA. Want some eggs? We sell ’em! We raise Bourbon Red Turkeys, a Heritage Breed on Slow Food USA’s Ark of Taste list. We hope to expand the flock through breeding and by adding other breeds from reputable breeders/hatcheries. Currently we are not selling turkeys as we expand the flock. Are we Certified Organic? Certified Humane? We are not at this time. However, we intend to become both certified organic and certified humane within five years. If you have any questions about our production methods please contact us. Rest assured, our food is grown following organic standards and practices and our animals are raised humanely, free-ranged on pasture by our family for the local market. Where do we buy our seeds? We are committed to preserving heirloom and open pollinated seeds and in raising organically produced vegetables. We purchase seeds from Johnny’s Selected Seeds, High Mowing Organic Seeds and Baker Creek Heirloom Seeds among other reputable vendors. We believe that to have great vegetables, herbs, and flowers, it starts with great seeds.
Farm practices: We raise heritage breeds - breeds that your grandparents would recognize. They are fed organic, non-GMO feed from Scratch and Peck Feeds using grain raised in the Pacific Northwest. Our hens have access to the outdoors where they can do what chickens do naturally.
