Deck Family Farm

A group of nine Slow Food: University of Oregon students carpooled to Deck Family Farm Saturday morning. This farm is a meat production farm that specializes in beef, pork, lamb, goat and poultry. There are more than 800 chickens, about nine full-time staff and 250 acres of pasture. That should give you a good idea of the size of this family’s operation.
