Our farm is entirely run by the two of us, Tarie and Lonn Benson. In the beginning we started raising dairy-replacement heifers. Both of us were working full time, Lonn as a timber faller and I in the insurance business, taking care of the herd early mornings and late evenings. After our son graduated in 2002, he joined the US Navy and we switched to beef cattle. We purchased our first heifer calf from our neighbor Mrs. Mower, quit our full-time jobs, and started farming full-time. At that time we registered with the WSDA Organic program.
So we are not new to the organic industry. We are dedicated to providing the best quality product for our customers. We consider ourselves stewards of the land, continuing the preservation of a sustainable and humane environment for all.
We are proud to say that we are participants in the Washington State Backyard Sanctuary and the National Wildlife Federation for Certification as a Wildlife Habitat. We provide the four basic Habitat elements needed for Wildlife to thrive. Not only do we take care of our animals we take care of “all ” animals.
