The Entiat Acres Story

A Local Family Owned Partnership

What happens when a group of local families with the same goals and interests, with a big dream to provide locally sourced homestead products to our community join forces? Entiat Acres is born!

 Entiat Acres is a multi-family homestead partnership located in the heart of the Wenatchee Valley in Washington State. We aim to provide fresh, organic, GMO-free food to the community in a sustainable manner. We believe in honoring God and being good stewards of the land entrusted to our care. All of us love each other and are passionate about our valley. Our hope is to create a local source for home-grown, farm-to-table goodness while increasing connections with other local producers. We invite you to join us on our journey and learn more about what we do.

How We're Cultivating a Community of Sustainable Living at Entiat Acres:

1. We use heritage breeds ​

What are heritage breeds?  The definition of a heritage breed is an animal that is one of the oldest of its kind, one that the pilgrims would have taken to the new world. Heritage breeds are multipurpose and known to be heartier against most viruses and diseases and can survive mostly on their own. Traditional, historic breeds retain essential attributes for survival and self-sufficiency: fertility, foraging ability, longevity, maternal instincts, ability to mate naturally, and resistance to diseases and parasites.  Heritage breeds once roamed the pastures of America’s pastures. Today many of these breeds are in danger of extinction. They don't fall into the useful category of modern agriculture...which makes them perfect for us because we don't fall into the modern agriculture category also! Heritage breeds store a wealth of genetic resources that are important for our future and the future of our agricultural food system.

2. We move our animals to new pasture.

  

Why?  We do this for various reasons but primarily because the animals thrive better.  It increases their health, the pasture's health, and our health!  This system is called rotational grazing. Simply put, rotational grazing is moving livestock to different sections of the pasture in order to maintain healthy, nutritious forages. Large pastures are sectioned off into smaller portions using either permanent or temporary fencing and animals are rotated to fresh pasture daily.

3. We raise our animals on 100% organic, non-GMO feed.

That's right. We use absolutely no harmful chemicals, antibiotics or additional fillers in our feed. We pasture raise our animals and supplement with 100% all-natural feed that's non-gmo, and has no corn or soy products of any kind! It's almost better than organic! 

4. When we source animals and products from other farmers we ensure they adhere to the same quality standards.
