Looking for Heritage Meats like Pastured Pork or Grass-fed Lamb in Spokane? Then welcome to Autumn Creek Ranch! We raise rare breeds of pigs and sheep just north of Spokane in beautiful Clayton, WA. Interestingly, neither one of us grew up on a farm. About 15 years ago we read the book, “Nourishing Traditions” which convinced us we needed to change our family’s food choices. We had 8 acres at the time and decided to raise some chickens for eggs and goats for milk. We found that not only were we able to provide better food for our family, we were teaching our kids the value of working hard and taking dominion of God’s beautiful creation.
Now we farm 75 acres in the beautiful Pacific Northwest. We have raised nearly every kind of livestock but have found we have a special affinity for pigs, sheep and alpacas. Our farm dogs provide a valuable service in keeping us and our livestock safe. Our hope is to create a multi-generational legacy of feeding people well from this land. We want our future generations to love farming and to continue being passionate about good, healthy food that is grown and raised, not manufactured. If you are wanting food that not only tastes amazing (you won’t believe how much better it is than store bought!) but is also so much better for you than look no further than Autumn Creek Ranch! Its time we all returned to a local food economy so we know how our food is raised and produced. You are the beginning of a food revolution-thanks for partnering with us in support of local farms!

Some weeks on the farm are awesome, some are pretty hard. This week was a mixture of both. We started off the week with purchasing some new Katahdin sheep. Our new girls come from a great family that has worked hard to have some of the best breeding stock in the...
