Fource River Farm & Cattle Co.— See MeatWorks Butcher & Market below
Goff Greengate Farm's mission is to handle the land as God intended… naturally, with good stewardship and using the most natural and sustainable products available to us at the time. We offer all-natural, pastured, grass-finished lamb and beef.
Our pastured poultry meat birds are fed organic, non-soy, non-GMO feed along with Fertrell's Poultry Nutribalancer trace minerals in addition to the fresh pasture land they are rotated onto twice each day via their "chicken tractors." Because we have chosen to process our own broiler chickens, no saline injections, additives, or preservatives are ever a part of our broiler chicken final products! Our 2013 broiler harvest dates are (tentatively) May 11, June 29, and September 28. You will also discover that our pastured free-range hens’ eggs are better than anything you’ll find in the store! You won’t have to worry about hormones and antibiotics when you purchase our livestock and products.
We want to serve you only that which we would also enjoy eating. We believe you'll enjoy natural more than ever before when you also know that you're buying local, supporting local farms, and building lasting relationships that benefit everyone involved. Thank you for supporting your local farmers!
We direct market our products using pre-orders for meat birds and lamb and beef. Chicken broilers are set for on-farm site pick-up but we do sometimes offer delivery meeting sites for additional fees.
Our location in southwest Missouri makes us within an hour's drive from Arkansas, Oklahoma, and Kansas too!
We would love to hear from you. If you have any questions or would like to talk to us about what we offer, you can call, email, or use our website's contact form... all listed below.

Healthy Tasty Beef is raised
at Walnut Grove Farm, which has been in the family since 1935. Our
grass-fed, grass-finished operation sells only beef born and
raised on these acres in NW Arkansas.
Our pure-bred Hereford cattle are grazed
in pastures of mixed grass. The summer pastures are primarily Bermuda
grass, White Clover, Red Clover and Lespedeza. Late winter and spring
find the cattle feeding on Annual Rye Grass, Wheat and Fescue. Cattle
being prepared for harvest in the winter time are supplemented with
top quality alfalfa hay. We use managed intensive grazing and
never graze forage older than second stage growth. Cattle drink
clear fresh water from tanks in their pastures, not water from ponds
they've been standing in.
Our beef is rich in Omega-3 fatty acids,
beta carotene, vitamin E and CLA. They are raised free of stress.
No grains, hormones, or antibiotics are used in producing this meat for
you. Our farming methods are environmentally friendly. No pesticides
are used on our pastures. Meat is USDA certified, vacuum sealed
and flash frozen. The great flavor is rich and robust.
We invite you to visit our website to
check out our offerings.

Mountain Springs Farm offers pastured chicken and turkey,
pastured pork, eggs from pastured hens, and grass-fed beef. All of our animals are treated humanely and are raised in protected areas of natural forage that allow them to live and
thrive as close to their creative design as possible.
We love to watch our pigs root, our turkeys chase bugs, our chickens forage, and our
cows eat grass. None of our livestock ever receives any synthetic wormers, antibiotics,
or any other artificial substances. Our goal is to allow each animal to fully express its
genetic potential by living in a way that is consistent with its makeup. We believe this also
produces the most healthy and nutrient-dense meat and eggs available today…and at a
price that will not set you back.

Peace Valley Poultry raises field-grazed chicken, turkey and beef. In 1996 our family began growing wholesome range-raised poultry. We are still a small family farm committed to providing high-quality, healthy meat in a manner that respects God's creation.
Our chickens are treated carefully and naturally from day one. The ration we feed them is one we mix from whole grains, vitamins and minerals, and does NOT contain Genetically Modified ingredients or any medications. The pasture they are raised on is pesticide-free/herbicide-free and is managed holistically with rotationally grazed cattle, although it is not certified organic. The chickens are raised in hoop houses that are moved to fresh grass daily to insure healthy birds and pastures. At processing time we continue our practice of careful handling to provide high-quality fresh chicken. The end result is a truly tasty bird; "Like chicken used to taste," as many of our customers say. The chicken is sold either whole, split (in half), cut-up, or in packages of individual parts.
In November we sell turkeys that are raised the same way the chickens are. We have heard many reports from satisfied customers who don't want anything but field-grazed turkeys now that they have tried one. Fresh turkeys are available on the farm and at delivery locations before Thanksgiving.
We sell our poultry from our farm and also meet customers in Springfield and Rolla. We are looking for someone to organize a buying club in St. Louis. Our chicken is also found in MaMa Jean's in Springfield, Ozark Country Market in Poplar Bluff, and can be ordered through American Grassfed Beef http://www.americangrassfedbeef.com/pasture-raised-poultry.asp .
We buy beef steers in the spring, graze them all summer and fall and process them in December.

Ratchford Farms. Down a winding road that snakes its way between hills and valleys in the Ozark Mountains you’ll find a place where the buffalo roam. The picture of this place, simply majestic and yet majestically simple, might be pulled from the worn pages of a wild west book tucked away on grandma and grandpa’s bookshelf.
Ratchford Farms aims to provide a taste of nostalgia to its customers by offering the experience of days past. We encourage you to go wild! Our products are shipped directly to you from our farm in Marshall, Arkansas where the buffalo graze on grass, drink spring-fed water and receive no steroids, hormones or chemicals.
Buffalo meats are great gift ideas for clients, military personnel, health-conscious friends and family, or for the person who (seemingly) has everything. Visit our website to order snack sticks, jerky, burgers, roasts, hotdogs, steaks and many other cuts of meat as described on our site. Please visit our site for current specials, ordering and more information.

Russell Ranch OK raises purebred Murray Grey and Murray Grey cross cattle. The Murray Grey is known for the important traits of calving ease, feed efficiency, and carcass quality. Murray Grey beef is preferred for its consistent quality and tenderness. We personally guarantee the quality of our beef and strive to produce superior quality grass-fed beef.
We make every effort to finish out our animals on native pastures. However, we do feed purchased feed if the forage is deficient because of drought, ice storms, etc. We have a smaller place (50 acres) in NE Oklahoma and keep a small herd of around 25 grown cows. Although we have excellent pastures, we feed hay and COB (corn, oats, and barley) when the weather is bad to help keep their energy levels up. When we feed COB, we only feed a few days and only while the weather is severe. We feed in troughs and the cows and bull get approximately 25 pounds (half a sack) of feed every 2–3 days.
Our cattle never see a feedlot. Steroids and artificial growth hormones are not used on our cattle. We keep a health record on each animal and if a steer needs antibiotics, they are pulled from our program and sold on another market.
Grass-fed beef has enormous health benefits. Lower in both in overall fat and saturated fat. It also provides more omega-3 fatty acids. Meat from pastured cattle is also up to four times higher in vitamin E and much higher in conjugated linoleic acid (CLA), a nutrient associated with lower cancer risk, as well as higher in beta-carotene and lower in calories. Grass-fed beef is one of the healthiest protein sources available.
Our beef is dry-aged a minimum of 14 days. Dry-aging produces unparalleled flavor and tenderness. We sell the entire beef, half or quarter. Beef is processed locally in a small, family-owned facility, where it is prepared, then cut to your specification and vacuum packaged.
We are a small family-owned and operated ranch. All the beef we sell comes from our ranch and we personally care for our land and our livestock. We direct market our products using pre-orders for beef due to the rapid selling out of meat and the limited availability. Please call, write, or email for availability and current pricing.
