Salmon Safe

The Nisqually River runs along 1,500 acres of Wilcox Family Farms on the west side. Each year salmon travel up the Nisqually River to spawn. They need a consistent salmon-safe environment. We’re committed to keeping the Nisqually River free of pesticides and contaminates.

Wilcox Family Farms is Salmon-Safe certified. Our salmon-safe practices keep the Nisqually River and salmon environmentally safe at all times. We follow strict water reclamation and conservation guidelines. As a result each year salmon enjoy a natural and beautiful spawning habitat. The Salmon-Safe certification is our continued commitment to keeping salmon, consumers and the environment safe and healthy.

This relationship keeps local salmon and the Nisqually River clean and salmon-safe for the species. The Nisqually Tribe and Wilcox Family Farms continue to share salmon-safe ideas and practices. We work together to maintain a natural and chemical-free salmon habitat.
