Alluvial Farms raises Berkshire cross hogs for pork and Organic small grains for hog feed on 45 acres in Everson, WA, just east of Bellingham. Pigs are rotated on ten acres of cropped paddocks and a twenty acre small grains field. We harvest 125 animals per year and sell pork directly to families and wholesale through the Puget Sound Food Hub.
We purchased the 45 acre farm property where we currently farm in February of 2018. We farm organically and will certify the pastures and grain field through WSDA in the summer of 2019. All components of our animal care and production are certifiable organic - with the exception that we historically have purchased feeder pigs from other farms in the region whose practices meet our standards. In 2019 we began our own breeding program and hope to be able to certify all our pork as Organic by summer of 2020.
