Grass Based Farming
Green Bow Farm is a small family run farm in Ellensburg, Washington. Our focus is multi-species rotational grazing to produce nutrient dense eggs, and grass-fed meat. What does that mean? It means we move chickens, pigs, sheep, and cattle around on pasture in a way that promotes the health of the soil and in turn the health of the animals. Our land is never sprayed with chemicals of any kind and our animals are never fed hormones or anitbiotics. In addition to pasture raised eggs and grass-fed meats we grow culinary and medicinal herbs with the nitrogen rich manure our laying hens provide and use those flowers and herbs to create grass-fed tallow soaps and salves nourishing for the skin, and soon we will be making herbal salt rubs and bone broth in our commercial kitchen to compliment the meat we sell. Our Icelandic sheep have beautiful fleeces that we turn into both yarn, wool dryer balls, and lambskin rugs. Building community and meeting the people we raise food for is one of the best job perks of being farmers. Don’t hesitate to ask about our other farming practices.
