Blue Valley Meats…local, sustainable, inspired. We are three local families in Walla Walla, WA who raise a small number of animals each year ourselves and work with our close friends and neighbors who raise the rest. We know how important it is to know the source of your meats, and to want those who care for the animals to use the best sustainable practices at all times. That's what we do with a passion. We can confidently say all our meats are "From Ranchers Who Care... For People Who Care!"
ALL calves are born on these ranches and receive NO antibiotics or added hormones in any of the animals. These are all 100% Grass Fed Beef and 100% Grass Fed Sheep. NO grains are ever fed to the cattle or sheep! The pigs and poultry receive non-GMO, natural feeds, again with no antibiotics or hormones added ever. The animals are humanely slaughtered, and we cut and wrap the meats ourselves at our own USDA butcher shop that is 100% Gluten-Free.
Meats are purchased "by the cut" (generally 2 steaks per package), or you may buy in bulk allowing for your special instructions on quarters, halves and wholes of beef, pork and lamb.
Our friendly and professional staff can help you customize your order too. Want your steaks 2 inches thick? Like to leave more fat on your brisket? No problem. Looking for house-made sausages with ingredients you can pronounce and NO MSG's or packaged unknown spices? You'll find them at Blue Valley Meats with attention to detail, like an old-fashioned 7-day brine for hickory smoked bacon, hams and sausages. All our meats are 100% Gluten-Free.

Restaurants as of January 2014:
Faith Farms offers true young lamb at six months to the end user customer. The Sire is a registered Shetland and the Dams are cross bred Shetland and South Down. The lamb is sold cut, vacuum-packed and quick frozen. Lambs average about 30 to 40 pounds net weight and are shipped Fed-X or USPS Express Mail. The lambs, packaging (insulated with cardboard outer) are shipped after payment by money order or cashiers check. We are not set up yet for credit card payments.
Faith Farms produces about 30-40 lambs a season. They nurse their mothers in some cases up to slaughter and are left with their Dam the whole spring, summer and fall season. They feed on the luxurious native wild grasses interspersed with clovers and herbaceous plants. Graze time is usually six months out of the year, but all year long they have access to willow tips and other buds and native bushes. They are fed primarily native hay baled close to the mineral rich beaches where they live their lives in a placid stress free environment.
The meat is cut by a very experienced butcher and are dispatched quickly and humanely. We are not organically certified, but all of our land is managed with organic fertilizers (fish meal, fish bones, and crab shells produced locally). There are also green crops tilled under and and manure spread on the fields. Granulated kelp and beach peat from the sea (kelp) is also used for fertilization.
Faith Farms also offers raw wool, handmade soap, and a limited amount of Certified Garlic Seed and Certified Alaska Potato Seed. All seed has been certified by the State of Alaska and is Disease-Free.
Faith Farms only sells lambs to the person eating the product. Whole lambs must be purchased. Please call for more information. Watch and help us grow.
Glacier View Farm, Ltd. owner Roxie Schade has been farming in Homer, Alaska for the past 40 years. She started raising cattle using rotational grazing in 1988 under the guidance of Gallagher Fence Company of New Zealand—experts in pasture-based systems. “This has made it possible for us to increase good quality pasture from 3 months to over 6 months a year. The cool, moist summers keep the grass growing, and with 24-hour daylight, we have excellent feed.”
The beef animals are on pasture and no other feed when slaughtered. They are sold on the farm by live weight and processed by the buyer under the direction of farm personnel.
Sitkinak Cattle Ranch is located on the remote, pristine island of Sitkinak, in the South Central coast of Alaska, just south of Kodiak Island. Wild
Angus, Galloways, Hereford, and other breeds of cattle range free on the lush hills and beaches of the isolated island, requiring no vaccines, antibiotics, steroids, or other additives.
Cattle graze all year long, are not fed any grain or hay, are 100% grass-fed, Certified Naturally Grown, Certified Alaska Grown, and are as organically raised as you will find in the U.S. The cattle have literally roamed wild for 70 years, and are being cared for, for the first time in history!
Starting December 15, 2009 this beef will be available as fully cooked, in packaging which eliminates the expensive use of freezers and refrigerators.
Know where your meat comes from, promote healthy eating, promote wild raised cattle, save energy, and buy from the Mudd family!
