About Us
Nehalem River Ranch is a multi-species, pasture-based farm committed to the highest standards of animal welfare and land stewardship. We are located just east of the three villages of Manzanita, Nehalem and Wheeler, nestled along the Nehalem River in the foothills of Oregon’s Coastal Range where the historic town of Foss once stood. Our grass-fed/finished beef and pastured pork are raised with a deep respect for both the animals and the land. For those intentional eaters concerned about non-GMO food and animal welfare who want to support family farmers and build strong local food economies while eating nutritious and delicious foods, Nehalem River Ranch is here for you.
Practices
Our cows and pigs live humane, stress-free lives grazing on our plentiful pastures. We are certified Animal Welfare Approved and our cows are certified Grassfed. We follow holistic management principles and plan our intensive rotational grazing to ensure a healthy environment for our animals and to maximize bio-diversity in the land we steward. It is important to us that we encourage our animal's natural behavior and provide them with a tranquil environment. We never brand, de-horn or use nose rings on our farm; we manage our pastures organically without herbicides or pesticides; and we only work with the handful of butchers who are audited and certified as Animal Welfare Approved. Our hope is that you and your family can enjoy our delicious and healthy food knowing that it comes from a farm that cares.
