I was recently introduced to organic cattle farming by Tarie Benson, owner of Skiyou Ranch in Sedro-Woolley, WA. She and her husband Vonn raise organic grass-fed Black Angus beef. Their farm has been in the Benson family for four generations, since 1894. All of their animals are born and raised on the farm, and eat only grass that is grown on the farm. In the summer, they are moved to higher pastures to take advantage of the grazing there. The two of them do all the work on the farm themselves, which I think is amazing. In addition to cats and dogs they have a deer and a raccoon as pets. Visit www.skiyouranch.com to learn more.
