Pasture Based, Small Scale Farming
At Burk Ridge Farms we are committed to the health and well-being of our local community, the local economy, friends, neighbors and fellow farmers. We believe that pasture-based small-scale farming, using rotational and natural grazing methods, is good for healthy people, healthy animals and healthy land.
Our Beef–Grown Here, For Here
Beyond growing and raising your own food, knowing and buying directly from farmers is the best way to get closer to your food and to the land that sustains you. When you know your farmer, you get to know exactly what is, or isn’t, in your food. You also see how they treat their land and their animals. You can then see how far your food has travelled and the earth’s resources that have been used to get it to your plate. These are the things we care about.
We are committed to raising healthy natural food for Whatcom County and supporting local hard working farmers that produce jobs right here, by helping them make their products more available to the local community.
We believe that supporting, buying and promoting locally grown food-from here, for here-helps everyone. For these reasons we believe that your local farmer should also be your grocer. We’d love to show you our farm sometime, (and eventually the store), so come on by.
