Drizzlewood Farm, LLC produces grass-finished beef and free-range heritage turkeys on our pasture-based family farm of oak savannah, wetland and forest located in the beautiful Cascade foothills just south of Molalla, Oregon. Both beef and turkeys are harvested humanely on-farm to avoid the stress of transport and to allow us to control quality of the products.
Our animals are given no antibiotics, steroids or growth hormones. Throughout the year, we move cattle from pasture to pasture to give them the best available grass while improving field condition and health. When needed, we feed them hay cut on the farm. The only grain they get is used in training them to follow us from field to field. (We don’t drive ‘em; we lead ‘em!)
We have 40 heritage turkeys for Thanksgiving this year, a mix of Bourbon Reds and Narragansetts (both breeds are listed on the Slow Food Ark of Taste). They forage outdoors during the day and go into the poultry house at night to deter predators. In addition to the bugs, grubs and grasses they find, we provide commercial pellets with no medication.
We’re learning how to produce great tasting, healthy food using sustainable, pasture-friendly practices. Currently, the farm produces grass-fed, grass-finished beef; free-range, heritage turkeys; eggs and honey.
Wetland areas and creeks have been fenced off to protect them from cattle damage and a creekside restoration project is underway with the planting of some 2,000 trees and shrubs.
