About Us
Olsen Farms is a small family farm located in a mountain valley in NortheasternWashington, just north of Colville, and was started in the mid-90s by Brent Olsen. His mother Merna, wife Kira, and two young daughters Nora and Lila, live and work alongside him at the farm. Brent travels weekly to Seattle, where you can meet him at many local Farmers Markets.

Olsen Farms is committed to enhancing the rural economy and stewarding farmland for wildlife habitat. Sustainability and direct marketing are the roots of our family farm and strengthening biodiversity is a clear benefit of our farming approach. Common companions at our farm include deer, elk, moose, eagles, bear, wolves, coyotes, and lots and lots of wild turkeys.
Practices
Our farm is in an isolated valley north of Colville, WA in the beautiful Selkirk Mountains. Our Angus and Angus/cross cattle are raised on green grass pastures and are fed our hay and potatoes in the winter. We feed the cows only what we grow on the farm, no outside food sources or animal by-products. Our pigs are fed barley grown just across the road from where they live and our lambs are moved throughout the region to remain on pasture for as much of the year as possible.

Animal welfare is a priority for us. Shelter, water and food are always provided. Our animals are naturally raised without the use of hormones or antibiotics. The animals raised on our pasture live low stress lives. Meat from pastured animals offers more "good fats" and fewer "bad fats" (saturated fats). It is also reported that that meat from grass fed beef is richer in antioxidants and has two to four times more omega-3 fatty acids (good fats) than grain-finished animals.

All of our meat is processed at our own USDA inspected facility, Smokey Ridge Meats, located in Chewelah. Our experienced and hard working crew at Smokey Ridge takes great care in producing the highest quality meats possible. For more information, visit our other website at www.smokeyridgewa.com.
