... Grade A RAW Cow's milk, Grass fed Angus beef, pasture raised chicken and free range eggs.
Welcome! Thank you for your interest in our farm, enjoy your visit.
In 1969, at the age of five. My parents moved my sister Dawn and I into a 1800's farmhouse on 13 acres in Seabeck. My father purchased our first Hereford cow "Sparky". Often wonder if Dad ever regretted that purchase. Away went the saddle shoes and cute dresses….I was forever a cow girl from that point on.
At eleven…my dear neighbor Dianne who suffered from arthritis made a proposition: if I would milk her Holstein cow "Poco", she would buy the feed and I could sell the milk. So everyday, before and after school I would peddle my bike to her house, milk the cow and balance buckets of milk on my handle bars to take home and put in glass gallon jars.
Soon I purchased my own Holstein heifer "Linnea" who became the patriarch of many generations of Holstein's on our farm Royal Coat Holstein's. We traveled to many fairs for 4-H and Jr. Holstein events. I also had Polled Herefords and served as a Washington State Polled Hereford Princess.
After a twenty year break from the dairy business I opened Blackjack Valley Farms and am starting all over building a Holstein herd and once again selling raw milk.
Blackjack Valley Farms offers a wider range of products then in the old days. Grass fed Angus beef, pasture raised chicken and free range eggs.
