About Us

Wilcox Family Farms is a 110-year-old farm that sits on 1,600 acres of farmland along the Nisqually River and in the foothills of Mt. Rainier.

Company History



Judson and Elizabeth Wilcox purchased the land on Harts Lake.


Judson and Elizabeth traded off attending a poultry husbandry course at Washington State College in Puyallup. They traded off because one of them had to always tend to the chickens.


Truman Wilcox joined the farm as a partner. Later, his wife Mildred joined as a partner in the family business.


Jim and Barrie join the family business and take over operational control upon Truman’s death in 1981. Jim and Barrie are both still actively involved in the operations.


Wilcox Family Farms added 30 milking cows to the operation. In 2008 the dairy was sold off, and the farm refocused 100% to eggs.


The fourth generation of Wilcox farmers joined the business.


Organic farming and poultry raising began.


Andy, Brent and Chris – take over operations of the farm and start transitioning all caged eggs to cage-free, free-range, and organic.


Wilcox purchases first hard boiled egg machine.


Wilcox builds first on site feed mill.


Wilcox builds first Mobile Pasture barn. Becoming the first system in the United States.


Today both the 4th and 5th generations are actively working in the family farm. We have no caged hens and every chicken is cage free, free range, pasture, and organic.
