Welcome to Cascadia Heritage Farm
We are a small farm on beautiful Whidbey Island in Washington State. We have been involved with breeding and promoting rare, endangered heritage breeds of livestock since 2018. We raised high quality Malay Chickens, Asil Chickens and San Clemente Island Goats, and some other heritage breeds of poultry.
Our goal in starting this little farm was to appreciate the miracle of life in its many forms. George came up with the acronym "ATM" for "Appreciate The Miracle" and have re-expanded the acronym: "A" stands for "Actively surround ourselves with life and fitness; "T" stands for "Try to effect positive change," and "M" stands for "Mindful, generous, and loving toward others."
Our Farm Breathes Life Into Our Values
We were dreaming of a different life than we had in Seattle, but our dreams were not well formed. Eventually as we explored our values, hopes and dreams, we came up with the idea of Appreciate The Miracle of life/biodiversity in the world around us, (abbreviated "ATM") and started ATM Enterprises, LLC. Cascadia Heritage Farm is a dba of ATM Enterprises. Making our values a reality involved turning our cabin property into a farm focused on raising and promoting critically endangered heritage breeds.
