About Us / Naked Acres Farm History: The two of us have a successful small farm that grows in an organic, sustainable and closed loop system. Our farm is on the edge of the urban density of Portland, Oregon with 3 ½ beautiful acres. We currently have a small pasture based, free-range flock of about 120 chickens for eggs and raise several heritage breed meat birds. Currently we have goats to provide milk for cheese, yogurt, soap making but do not sell raw milk. We are also raising lamb, pork and heritage breed turkeys seasonally for meat. All of our animals are pasture raised and are Animal Welfare Approved. We believe that animal welfare is paramount to our success in animal husbandry and as humans in general.
The crops we are growing are available at local farmers markets year round and through our CSA membership and restaurant direct. We do our best to practice a closed loop system with very few outside inputs. We are a no spray farm and have become Certified Naturally Grown as well as Animal Welfare Approved. We feel that these two certification exceed the standards set forth in 'Organic' certification and are not regulated by a governmental agency but are independently regulated. We also believe that certified organic does not always mean better. In our search for a certifying organization that meets or exceeds the standards set forth in certified Organic and meets our expectations we found Certified Naturally Grown a good fit. Animal Welfare Approved status affirms that our animals are living humane, healthy, happy lives the way that they are intended. The chickens range the farm eating bugs, dust bathing, foraging and brooding out chicks on their own. The goats, sheep and variety of other poultry have only a little less freedom to insure we still have produce growing to take to market! . Our pigs root around in the dirt while being moved around the farm to new and interesting ground to work on regularly and we enjoy watching the barnyard entertainment every day!
