17th June 2019 - Pasture raised meats

There is nothing better than knowing where your meat comes from, how it is raised, what it has been fed, are the animals taken care of and if they were harvested humanly. That is something that we can guarantee here at The Pierce Family Ranch. All our livestock is on pasture their entire lives, once the turkeys and chickens are weaned from the heat lamps they have access to all the grass and bugs they can nibble on and are also supplemented with a non GMO free grower food. The butchers that I use are very compassionate and respectful and that is something that we take great pride in. I am very fortunate to be able to enjoy the meat that I personally raise myself and love hearing from my customers on how great our beef, pork, chicken and turkey is. If you would like to enjoy some of this wonderful meats that I raise you can contact me at our website thepiercefamilyranch.com.

21st May 2019 - Spring grass finished beef shares

Spring grass finished beef from The Pierce Family Ranch!

The Pierce Family Ranch is located on Chehalem Mountain west of Sherwood and north of Newberg. We are on the farm that has been in our family for over 60 years. We raise a Wagyu Angus cross of cattle. We have a full Wagyu bull that we personally raised and he hangs out with our Angus cows. If you have never heard of the Wagyu breed, it is a breed from Japan and this is the breed that where the Kobe beef comes from, we however do not massage our beef. They are on pasture their entire lives and during the months when grass is scarce they are fed locally grown grass hay and Alfalfa. No growth hormones, steroids or grain is ever introduced to our cattle for it is our goal to provide the best and tastiest pasture raised beef there is to offer. We have dates open for shares. We sell by the quarter, half or whole. You get the choice of how you want to customize your share and get to talk directly to the butcher. Never done this before? We would be happy to give suggestion on the best way to get the most out of your share. Never had our beef and would like to give it a try before you dive in and order a share? Not a problem, we have a farm store here at the ranch with freezers filled with our own personal assortment of cuts of USDA beef, pork and chicken that we raised here on the ranch or leased pastures or you can catch us at one of the farmers markets that we attend, Tigard Farmers Market on Burnham St. McMinnville Grange Market on SW Old Sheridan Rd. and Newberg Farmers Market on First and Howard St.
