Whitethorn Farm works to integrate our operations into the environment. We buy our feed locally, our bedding is from a local wood products company and out manure is used in local agriculture. Our facility uses modern techniques to minimize runoff from our paddocks and we store the manure in a covered enclosure. Our efforts were recognized by the Kitsap Conservation District by naming us the 2010 Cooperator of the Year. We continue to look for opportunities to operate the farm in an environmentally responsible manner.
