LOPEZ ISLAND FARM
Lopez Island Farm is blessed with a climate that is perfect for raising grass-fed livestock. Even in the middle of winter, some days are warm enough for the grass to grow. Our sheep are on pasture all year and lambing is timed to take advantage of the spring flush of grass. The breeds we have selected were developed to finish on grass and are lean with a delicate flavor. Our pasture-raised pigs live outside where they can forage and root to their hearts' content. In addition to the health and nutritional benefits from pasture grazing, they just enjoy digging, and happy pigs are healthy pigs. All our lamb and pork is produced without the need for antibiotics or hormones. Our meats are available in our farm store, at the Lopez Farmers Market, Proctors Farm Market in Tacoma and by special arrangement.
