Island Fresh farm is located on beautiful Marrowstone Island, a serene protected spot in the rain shadow between Kilisut Harbor and Admiralty Inlet. We believe in sustainability and farm to restore the land through its use. We are not certified organic, but grow our crops without use of harmful pesticides or herbicides and use only natural fertilizers to amend the soil. Happy healthy animals are more delicious and more nutritious.
Our pigs are content as they rotate through grassy pastures, tilling the land and fertilizing as they go. Their diet is balanced with locally sourced grains, fodder (sprouted seeds), local whey, eggs, and windfall fruit. The chickens, ducks, and turkeys free range to control flies, slugs, and other buggy pests while contributing their own fertilizer. Our flock of sheep rotates through pastures to keep the fence lines mowed and our Kiko goats clear the brush.
We use New Zealand designed fencing in combination with guardian animals to keep predators wild and our family of domestic food animals safely protected. We raise our animals humanely so we (and you) can eat delicious healthful food without guilt.
