Draper Valley Farms has been a Northwest tradition since 1935, and today we remain singularly focused on providing carefully raised, fresh, local chicken to the Northwest. Our brands include DRAPER VALLEY FARMS® organic chicken, RANGER® free-range chicken and DRAPER VALLEY FARMS® No Antibiotics Ever chicken.
We trace our roots back to a single, family-owned egg farm in the Skagit Valley. A lot has changed over eight decades, including the switch from selling table eggs to growing chickens. But our biggest changes came through a focus on "small." In the 1990s, with a nascent consumer consciousness around food production, we moved away from the trend toward bigger, faster and cheaper. We focused on our consumers in the Northwest ... and on how we raise chickens. We removed from chicken feed the animal by-products that are often used as a cheap source of protein. We stopped the common practice of using antibiotics. We launched the RANGER® brand of free-range chicken.
Today, we follow a simple guiding principle: "the way nature intended." All of our chickens are raised in a reduced stress environment, fed an all-vegetarian diet with no animal fats or animal proteins, and never, ever receive any antibiotics.
With farms in Washington and Oregon, a feed mill in Washington and our sole processing plant in Mount Vernon, Washington, our chicken is locally raised, locally packed and locally available.
