At the age of 29, she spent a thrilling 13 months bike touring and woofing across the USA and Europe. When she returned home, those adventures would sow the seeds of her fascination with agriculture and led to professional experiences as a program manager for Seattle Tilth and Conservation Planner at King and Whatcom Conservation Districts. Now, whether crafting compelling campaigns or growing happy healthy pigs, she brings a unique blend of marketing prowess and a green thumb to the team.

Alex joined our team with a passion for farming and a wealth of experience. Before joining Alluvial Farms, she served as a dedicated ranch manager in Tenino, WA. From handling cattle and pigs to revamping the marketing program, Alex's skills and knowledge are deeply rooted in the agricultural world. Her commitment to sustainable farming and enhancing the farming community shines through in everything she does.


Last but certainly not least, the beloved dogs of Alluvial Farms. These furry companions have played an invaluable role as dedicated taste testers right from the start. With their discerning taste buds and boundless enthusiasm, they've provided us with invaluable feedback and countless tail-wagging experiences along the way.

Meet Trout, the wise elder statesman of the pack at 13 years old. With years of experience under his collar, Trout brings a wealth of wisdom and a refined palate to the table. His discerning taste and approval have been instrumental in perfecting our treats, ensuring that each batch meets the highest standards of deliciousness.

And then there's Marshall, the energetic youngster at just 4 months old. Full of boundless energy and endless curiosity, Marshall approaches every tasting session with excitement. His playful spirit and eager feedback remind us that our treats are not only delicious but also irresistibly enjoyable for dogs of all ages.

Together, Trout and Marshall have shown us that every training session, mealtime, or spontaneous treat break is made better with Alluvial Pork Liver Pet Treats and Meal Topper. Their enthusiasm and unwavering approval serve as a constant reminder of the joy and satisfaction our treats bring to dogs everywhere. Here's to Trout, Marshall, and all the furry friends who inspire us to create the best possible treats each and every day.
