The Faded Rose Ranch is located on Puget Island, on the banks of the Columbia River, across the bridge from Cathlamet, WA and accessible via ferry from Westport, OR. The ranch is within a scenic drive from both Seattle, WA and Portland, OR areas. This one-man and two-dog sheep and cattle operation offers all-natural, grass-fed freezer lamb and beef by the whole or half.
All animals are bred, born, and raised here. Grass/hay, clean water, plus mother’s milk make up the diet of our livestock. Our happy animals are raised in a stress-free and humane environment. We are not certified organic but we try. No hormones, supplements or antibiotics are ever used.
The delicate flavored lamb of a Katahdin hair heritage breed ewe will be a welcome addition to your diet. We look forward to telling you why. Our beef comes from Irish Dexter cows usually crossed with Black Angus to give the finest flavor and a size that will fit in your freezer. Delivery to a local butcher is included in the sale. Delivery to your location may be possible.
Product is available in the fall and can be made available other times of year if prior arrangements are made. It does help the shepherd's planning if indications of product interest could be made as far as possible in advance of your need.
Come visit, bring a kayak and enjoy the river. We are proud of how we raise our animals and we are proud of the quality, taste and safety of our products. We look forward to feeding you soon!
