Wood Family Farm is a family operated, small farm located in the lush mid-Willamette Valley midway between Albany and Salem. We raise pork and beef and a few chickens.
Our goals are to raise and train our children in the acknowledgement of God’s creation, raise our animals in a manner consistent with their design, and produce products that reflect our values in their quality, taste and nutrition.
Our pigs are born on our farm and, as weather permits, enjoy the outdoors. Our pigs are fed a wholesome grain diet free of by-products, antibiotics or artificial stimulants. We grind our own feed using locally grown wheat and Northwest grown field peas. A small amount of soybean meal is added to increase the protein level of the feed. We feature a wide assortment of pork cuts, including 5 different types of sausage. Our sausages are seasoned with natural herbs and spices and contain no preservatives.
Our beef is a natural compliment to the lush grasses grown in the Willamette Valley. From March through November, our steers are out on pasture. By using managed rotational grazing, we are able to maximize our grass production. However, the rains of the winter in the valley do not allow our steers to remain on pasture throughout the winter months. After the grass ceases to grow, they are fed hay harvested from our fields. We receive many compliments on the delicious flavor of our pork, lamb and beef.
By raising our animals outdoors and in low density, we do not need to use antibiotics on a routine basis. However, if a situation occurs that warrants the use of antibiotics, they are prudently used. Antibiotics, hormones and meat by-products are not included in our feed rations.
We strive to be wise stewards of our animals and land.
Our children are involved with every aspect of our farm as we daily work together. Each child has also developed his own business. Management decisions for the farm are made during weekly family meetings with the children involved in planning and problem solving.
Our products may be purchased at the Corvallis Indoor Winter Market, Corvallis Farmers Market and our farm by appointment.
