{the farm}

Our Short Story: In 2002-’03 Tyler spent a year at Polyface Farm in Virginia as an intern with sustainable farmer extraordinaire Joel Salatin. When Tyler returned to Corvallis Oregon he started Afton Field Farm on about 10 acres. We now own and manage 106 acres using Joel’s methods raising pastured poultry (for eggs and meat), grass-fed beef, oak savanna pork, turkey, lamb, and bees for honey, as well as baked goods (all products subject to availability).

Farming Methods: All of our animals are raised on pasture or in the woods using Managed Intensive Rotational Grazing methods. The beef and lamb are strictly grass fed from birth to slaughter and all other animals, layer chickens, broiler chickens, hogs, & turkeys, get a large part of their diet from the pasture and woods. They are also supplemented with custom grain mixes.


Processing: We process all of our poultry on-farm at our beautiful, State (ODA) licensed facility, and the large animals are butchered at Mt. Angel Meat Co., in Mt. Angel, OR.Β  If you would like to see any of the butchering process or just want to see the good life these animals live, please feel free to come visit!

      Jamie. Thanks for checking out my blog! We’ve chosen to only supply our local region and to encourage other farms to do the same, therefore we don’t ship our products or deliver over 100 miles from the farm. So…. if you are ever visiting Oregon, stop on by the farm and you can purchase our products. Until then, you should check out localharvest.org, eatwild.com, or food-hub.org to see what farms are in your local area. Best of luck on your food journey ;)

    I just finished watching Food inc…along with everyone it seems, and I would like to gather more information on your pricing and where you are located. We are in Sherwood (Oregon) and would love to bring our little ones to explore if that is an option. Your blog is wonderful, I can’t wait to see the new sight. Congrats and happy farming, I know my heels would be mud caked too. :)

      Thanks Brittany! Well, I’m glad to hear that you are from Oregon because that means you are super close to the farm! :) Be looking for an email from me that answers all your questions you asked. Thanks again for the encouragement and for checking out the blog!

I would love some additional information on how purchasing works and potential dates that meet would be available. Thank you for bringing Joel’s methods to Oregon.
