Soggy Feet Enterprises, located in Scappoose, Oregon, is a first generation family farm, offering local, pasture-raised, natural, grass fed and finished beef. Our beef is USDA Certified Grass Fed/Finished (we are one of only two farms in the state with this certification). We do not feed our cattle any grains, antibiotics, GMOs, or use any type of hormones. Our cattle are free to roam on pasture and fields year round- never being confined in barns/stalls or feedlot environments. During the winter when pasture grass is not growing, we feed grass and clover haylage and grass hay that we grow and harvest ourselves. Our cattle are primarily Black Angus, with a few Angus/Hereford or Charolais crosses (no dairy breeds).


2nd November 2017 - Free Lavender Growers Guide from Sauvie Island Lavender Farm

LAVENDER GROWING TIPS

Yup! After 12 years of answering growing questions on a daily basis from my awesome customers, I have put pen to paper (OK, more like fingers to keyboard) and created the Lavender Growers Guide: 7 Growing Mistakes and How to Avoid Them. It is a practical guide for those who wish to grow lavender for fun or for those who want to learn how plant lavender as a cash crop. It's a quick read and full of great info if I do say so myself!


31st October 2017 - FALL APPLES STILL AVAILABLE

MASON HILL ORCHARD has a few varieties of Fall apples still available. We just finished the last picking of Melrose apples which are a great all purpose apple for apple sauce, pies, or fresh eating. They are also a very good keeping apple without refrigeration so they can be stored for several months in a cool place such as garage, basement, or back porch and will still retain their crispness and flavor. Our self service stand has them available in 5, 10, 20 lb bags and 40 lb bushel boxes. We plan on being open for the next several weeks or until we run out. Don't wait to long or you may have to wait till next season. We are Tri-County Farm #42.
