We at Big Coulee Farms are a small farm family determined to develop a fertile, healthy land base and excellent quality “real food.”
We are looking for you – loyal, consistent, happy customers who are supportive of your ethical farmer who puts wholesome, healthy, tasty meat on your plate and in your mouth. Our purpose is to make our little corner of the world as healthy and productive as it can be using holistic management principles.
Our beef, poultry and pork have never seen antibiotics, never seen growth hormones and never eaten grain. Raised naturally in the sun, from sunrise to sunset!
Participate in one of our regular hands-on sessions to see, hear, smell, and taste the health difference and impact on the environment that is the product of an intentional approach to holistic land management practices.
Learn how you can make a difference in the choices that you make in how you select the foods you eat, or how you raise and manage your own livestock and land.
Our chickens are raised outside in fresh air and sunshine in small groups. They’re placed in portable, bottomless pens on our pastures and moved to fresh forage every day. Using this “chicken mobile”, our broiler chickens have access to fresh grass and bugs while leaving their manure behind to fertilize the soil.
Our “just weaned” pigs are placed in either electric or portable fenced areas and are able to express their full pigness by grazing, running, playing or stretching out in the shade for a snooze. Pigs are given some additional grain to their naturally acquired food sources.
Big Coulee Farms is a small farm family in an ongoing journey of holistic management practices focused on developing:
All meat products are processed in provincial inspected plants, and are frozen at the processing plant.
Truly sustainable livestock farming requires the use of a pasture-based system. Pasture-raised animals roam freely in their natural environment where they’re able to eat nutritious grasses and other plants that their bodies are adapted to digest. In addition to dramatically improving the welfare of farm animals, pasturing also helps reduce environmental damage, and yields meat, eggs and fowl that are tastier and more nutritious than foods produced on factory farms. Pasture raised livestock are above and beyond simply “organic”. Learn more about pasture raised livestock.
Big Coulee Farms uses farming practices and techniques pioneered by Joel Salatin of Polyface Farms in West Virginia. Our animals all enjoy the sun, grass and are the very definition of pasture raised.
