About Us
Chehalis Valley Farm is a 50-acre farm outside of Elma, WA in the Chehalis River Valley. John Hagara established the farm in 2012 with the goal of providing his community with access to healthy, sustainably and ethically grown, pasture-raised poultry as an alternative to mass-produced, factory farmed birds. The farm expanded to include forest-raised pigs in 2016 and has continued to increase production of poultry and pork each year. We are dedicated to providing our customers with information and transparency about our farming practices and encourage you to schedule a visit to the farm to further shorten the distance from our farm to your table.

Pasture-Raised Poultry
We raise a variety of chickens, ducks and turkeys on our pasture and we really do believe you will be able to taste the difference! Our birds start out in a brooder house where they are provided with optimal temperature and moisture conditions. Once they are fully feathered, they are transported to mobile pasture shelters where they are protected from predators and provided shade and protection from the elements. For the next several weeks, they are given access to sun, fresh air, new grass, seeds and insects. Their diets are supplemented with Washington grown, non-GMO grains that are corn free and soy free and they are never given growth hormones or antibiotics. Their time on the pasture serves to fertilize the land, promoting vigorous grass growth and optimum soil health. Our WSDA-inspected poultry processing facility allows us to process our poultry on site, minimizing the stress and discomfort of the animals and maximizing the quality and freshness of our products.

Forest-Raised Pork
We believe that pigs raised in the forest make for the best, most delicious pork you'll ever have! In the forest, our pigs can roam, forage, dig and nap whenever they would like. Our practice of rotational grazing is beneficial for the forest by helping to control invasive plants and to aerate the soil. Their forage diet is supplemented with Washington grown, non-GMO grains that are corn and soy free and they are never given growth hormones or antibiotics. When weather necessitates, they are provided shelter and deep bedding. Many of our pigs are a cross between Hereford Hogs and Gloucestershire Old Spots.

Our pigs are USDA processed by a small, locally owned butcher that is Animal Welfare Approved and believes in the humane handling of livestock.
