Swingletree Farm – Aurora, OR

Kim Biafora raises Certified Animal Welfare Approved by A Greener World (AGW) laying hens along with Certified Animal Welfare Approved by AGW, Certified Grassfed by AGW sheep at Swingletree Farm in Aurora, Oregon. Kim and her partner, Breckinridge, are passionate farmers and have long been inspired by the Local Food Movement and the concept of safe, healthy, and wholesome food produced in a manner that minimizes impact to the environment and maximizes animal welfare.

Swingletree Farm is 25 acres of hill and dale in the French Prairie region of the northern Willamette Valley near the historic town of Aurora, Oregon. The flock of laying hens is raised outdoors and enjoy free range on the lush pasture and fertile gardens at Swingletree Farm. The flock is made up of Black Australorp, Delaware, and Americauna chickens. “These heritage breeds are all hardy, healthy, and productive layers, and have excellent meat qualities as well,” says Kim. “We maintain our layers in smaller, natural flocks, each with an ever-watchful rooster on the guard. We produce our own chicks here on the farm, allowing them to be naturally raised by a doting mama hen whenever possible, which allows us to sustain and improve our flocks over time without having to rely on commercial hatcheries.”

In addition to being Certified Animal Welfare Approved by AGW, the flock of Dorper/Katahdin hair sheep at Singletree Farm are Certified Grassfed by AGW, the first—and only—food label in the U.S. and Canada that guarantees food products come from animals fed a 100% grass and forage diet, and raised entirely outdoors on pasture or range.

At Swingletree Farm, Kim and Breckinridge’s goal is to create a self-sustaining “farm ecosystem” that is diverse, resilient, and adaptable. They are very proud to be part of the AGW program. “Gaining this certification for our products means that we adhere to rigorous animal welfare and environmental sustainability standards for our livestock,” says Kim. “We are thrilled to receive this recognition!”

Swingletree Farm’s Certified Animal Welfare Approved by AGW eggs and Certified Grassfed by AGW lamb are available through the farm’s CSA, with delivery available to most Portland neighborhoods or Wilsonville/Canby/Aurora.
