Berriedale Farms is located in the Cowpasture River Valley of Virginia. Nelson Hoy and Lizzie Biggs together have made life-long commitments to preserve the unique grass-fed genetics of Red Poll cattle – recognized by the American Livestock Breeds Conservancy as a threatened heritage breed. We endeavor to raise the healthiest and the most flavorful, tender and juicy grass-fed and grass-finished beef anywhere east of the Mississippi River. Our vision is to become the small family farm of choice for 100 households.

  • Red Poll cattle at Berriedale Farms are raised on native grasses, legumes and forbs, and further, finished on grasses.
  • Berriedale Farms does not give our Red Poll cattle growth hormones, prophylactic antibiotics, or insecticide implants.
  • Berriedale Farms ensures that our Red Poll cattle have free access to the same cool, clear and pure water that Nelson, Lizzie and our guests drink at the farm house.
  • Red Poll cattle at Berriedale Farms have free-choice access to essential minerals and salt.
  • Berriedale Farms treats its Red Poll cattle in a humane fashion – i.e., we do not use herd dogs or electric cattle prods, or separate individuals from their herdmates. Additionally, we patronize a certified humane meat processing plant.
  • Red Poll cattle at Berriedale Farms are given the best veterinary care possible, including: vaccinations, antibiotics, surgeries, and multifaceted fly control measures.
  • Berriedale Farms allows its Red Poll cattle the time, space and forage necessary to achieve their natural physiological maturity. In other words, we do not rush to market and sacrifice grass-fed beef quality for the economy of throughput.

Nelson and Lizzie are conservationists. The farm and forest lands, water and river, and heritage livestock breeds of Berriedale Farms are governed by a progressive conservation easement held by The Nature Conservancy.

Hollin Farms is a three-generation family farm in Fauquier County, Virginia, about 45 minutes from the Washington DC/ Virginia beltway.

Our "Natural Angus Baby Beef" comes from yearling steers and bulls that are about 800 pounds as compared to industrial feedlot steers which weigh about 1200 pounds. Angus is the name of the breed—a black English breed renowned for its beef quality.

"Natural Beef" is from animals that have received no antibiotics in their feed and have no growth implants. These yearling beefs are slaughtered at 800–900 pounds, which is 300–400 pounds less than industrially raised cattle. Because they are younger, the beef is generally more tender and leaner.

Price includes slaughter and vacuum/freeze packing. Sold in quarter, side, or whole units only. Customer picks up at Gore Custom Meats in Stephens City, Virginia.

Hollin Farm, Tom Davenport, 11324 Pearlstone Lane, Delaplane VA 20144. (540) 592-3701.

It's Only Natural Farm, (ION Farm for short), is located in southern MD, approximately 30 minutes south of Washington DC. We raise Texas Longhorn Beef Cattle, Heritage Tamworth Hogs, Layer and Broiler Chickens, Boer Goats, Muscovy Ducks, for sale to the public for meat. We use no hormones, antibiotics, or steroids.

We practice sustainable agriculture, common sense economics, and the 'all natural' raising of livestock. Although we realize the eventuality, we treat our animals as our pets. They reflect this caring in their calm manner and their desire to be petted and rubbed. We employ "Management Intensive Grazing" and the "Leader Follower Program" with all of our animals. As in nature, every animal has a job and serves a purpose in the "all natural" maintenance of the farm.

Our Texas Longhorns are natural foragers and are raised on pasture and in the woods.They are great foragers and eat a larger variety of plants and grasses than many other breeds. In addition they are naturally leaner in fat.

Our Heritage Tamworth pigs are raised on pasture and finished on acorns in our woods, giving the meat a hint of nutty flavor. These pigs produce leaner pork and are known as the 'bacon hog' due to the extra length of their bodies. The Tamworths graze pasture after the cattle, eating what the cattle choose not to and helping the process of turning manure into the ground.

Chevon is gaining popularity by the day. Goat meat is similar in protein with less saturated fat and cholesterol than most meats—even chicken. The taste is very mellow with no game flavor. Our Boer Goats are a part of our "Leader Follower Program." They clean up the fence lines and keep down the weeds.

Our poultry is either free range or in a chicken tractor helping to maintain the pastures. In addition to eating grasses, plants, and bugs, after the other animals are finished, the birds scratch around and mix the manure with the soils to fertilize the farm in an "all natural" manner. Our Eggs, Broiler/Fryer Chickens, and Muscovy Ducks are naturally higher in Omega 3s.

Meat is available by reservation as 1/4, 1/2, and whole beef, 1/2 hog and whole hog, bar-b-que hog, and whole goat. Poultry and fowl are sold by the whole bird.

Beef and pork is processed at a USDA Inspected Facility and vacuum packaged with our farm label, description of the cut, and the weight of the package.

We are a working farm but welcome prospective customers to the farm by appointment.

We are members of the American Livestock Breeds Conservancy, the Tamworth Swine Association, the American Boer Goat Association, and we support the American Farmland Trust.

We look forward to providing you and your family the freshest in all natural meats.

Rappahannock Natural Foods Cooperative provides "Rappahannock Real-real food from real farmers."

The RNF Coop is a small farmers’ coop formed with the idea of allowing customers in the Washington DC area to shop at one reliable source for all their local and natural farm products. We stand behind our products as being locally produced and humanely processed in a local slaughter house.

The RNF Coop enables customers to shop for beef, lamb, pork, goat, chicken, eggs, produce and fruit all in one convenient place—either in our Sperryville, VA. farm store or on the web. Through the Coop, you can buy from the member farm of your choice and your purchases will be delivered to you on a weekly basis at your home or a convenient drop off point.

To accommodate different tastes, we offer a variety of products, from certified organic to plain and natural. But whatever the diet, you will find it specified in the farm section. And it is all local. (Note: In addition to their grass fed beef and lamb, the Coop also offers beef and lamb which had a supplemental diet of grain, but still roamed around freely in the pasture. These products are clearly labeled both at their farm store and online.)

Our members are mostly small farmers from Rappahannock and surrounding counties. Their families have been farming the land for untold generations, some going back as early as the 1700s. All  raise their livestock in a humane and natural way without the use of hormones or unnecessary antibiotics. They grow their produce and fruits without unnecessary and harmful pesticides. Cows roam freely in green pastures, chickens scratch for grubs and seeds around the barn, pigs stroll outside or roll in the mud as they please, and lambs dart around in the clover.

To ensure that our products are what we say they are, the Coop visits and inspects each of its members’ farms on a regular basis. We have one non-farming board member from the city who represents our customers and helps us to better understand our customers’ needs.

True Ewe Farm is a small, seasonal, grass-based sheep farm located in the foothills of Virginia's Blue Ridge Mountains, about an hour outside of Washington, DC. We produce natural, grassfed lamb and (coming in 2008) artisan farmstead sheep's milk cheeses.

We are dedicated to following sustainable and humane agricultural practices to produce high quality foods from Virginia's fine mountain meadow grasses.

Our lamb is tender, full of flavor and healthy for you. All our lambs are raised on the farm’s pasture salad – a local blend of native herbs, clover and grasses. They receive no antibiotics or growth-promoting hormones, and you never have to worry about animal byproducts in their diet.

We employ intensive rotational grazing, which allows us to fulfill the sheep's natural desire to graze on the freshest feed possible and to naturally fertilize the land.

We lamb once a year, so the supply is limited. Currently, we sell only whole lambs and half lambs. Intimidated by buying that much lamb? Don't be. Check out the “FAQ” section on our web site.

We invite you to enjoy the fruits of our labor. Eat Local! Eat True!
