Berriedale Farms is located in the Cowpasture River Valley of Virginia.

Nelson Hoy and Lizzie Biggs are conservationists and how we manage the farm's forests and grasslands, river and drafts are governed by a progressive conservation easement held by The Nature Conservancy. Nelson and Lizzie have made life-long commitments to preserve the unique grass fed genetics of heritage Red Poll cattle and to breed critically rare Suffolk draft horses. We endeavor to raise the healthiest and the most flavorful, tender and juicy grass-fed and -finished beef anywhere east of the Mississippi River.

  • Red Poll cattle at Berriedale Farms are raised on native grasses, legumes and forbs.
  • Berriedale allows its cattle the time, space and peacefulness necessary to live into full maturity.
  • We do not rush our cattle to market and sacrifice beef quality for the economy of throughput.
  • Berriedale does not use growth hormones, prophylactic antibiotics or insecticide implants.
  • Nelson and Lizzie ensure that our Red Poll cattle have free access to cool, clear and water.
  • Red Poll cattle at Berriedale Farms have free-choice access to essential minerals and salt.
  • We do not use herd dogs, electric cattle prods or separate individuals from their herd mates.
  • Berriedale Farms patronizes a certified humane meat processing plant.
  • Veterinary care includes vaccinations, antibiotics, surgeries and fly control measures.

Berriedale Farms, Nelson and Lizzie serve health-conscious families that value environmentally-sound farm practices and who choose to patronize a small family farm in rural Appalachia. We harvest ten (10) beeves each year and that's it. Nelson and Lizzie enjoy an extended “family” relationship with about 200 households, most located within 200-odd miles. Many families with children visit Berriedale Farms and stay in our Cabin on the Cowpasture.

Come join our farm family!

Evermore Farm is a small, family-owned and operated livestock and produce farm. We are located in Westminster, MD with easy access from Baltimore, MD; Washington, DC; Frederick, MD; and south-central Pennsylvania. Although we are not certified organic, we run our farm in a sustainable manner. We support local food systems, better stewardship of our land, and raising animals with respect. We offer seasonal shares of our produce, meats (beef, pork, lamb), poultry (chickens) and eggs.

We raise fork-tender Dexter/Belted Galloway beef cattle, wonderfully mild tasting Katahdin lambs, and flavorful heritage Berkshire hogs. We have fresh eggs from Rhode Island Reds and produce free-range broilers (chickens) March-November. We promote an intelligent husbandry that supports a more sustainable farming and food system. Our lambs and beef are grass-fed and all our animals are raised without added hormones or antibiotics.

We follow natural sustainable farming practices, including rotational grazing. Grazing on open pasture helps with the general health of the animals: they get exercise, absorb sunshine, and breathe fresh air. They seem happier that way, and we are, too.

All of our meat is USDA inspected for quality. You have several options when purchasing our meats and poultry for your freezer—at our farm store, on-line ordering, delivery available. We offer whole, half and quarter steers, whole and half hogs, and whole lambs. Multi-Season CSA meat, poultry and egg shares available. Check our website for price and availability.

John and Ginger have made lots of great friends working in agriculture and as producers. Evermore Farm is their ardent effort to “walk the talk” about the viability of diversified, sustainable small farms. However, both agree that their best “crop” is their children, Susan and Andrew. Both are now married with wonderful partners and have children of their own. Family is our greatest joy and serves as “True North” on the farmer’s compass.

Please call or email with any questions.

Evermore Farm, Ginger Myers, 150 Rockland Road, Westminster MD 21158. (443) 398-6548.

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.

Honey Brook Farms is a multi-generation family run farm located on the beautiful piedmont of Culpeper, VA.

  • 100% Grass Fed dairy operation offering Raw Milk shares from our 100% A2/A2 Jersey herd. Our dairy is one of very few in the country that keeps their cows on chemical free pasture 365 days a year with no grain supplements.
  • 100% Grass Fed and Finished Beef and Lamb
  • Pasture/Forest Raised Non-GMO Pork – We farrow pigs that are a cross between Tamworth and Gloucestershire Old Spot. 
  • Pasture Raised Chicken, Turkey, and Eggs – Our birds are constantly on grass and processed on farm in bleach-free water.
  • The feed we supplement our pigs and poultry with: We used to use Non-GMO feed until we learned that Non-GMO feed is often sprayed with chemicals. We considered Organic feed but learned it is seldom tested after being grown. Finally, we found a feed source that is tested and guaranteed to be GMO-Free, Pesticide-Free, Herbicide-Free, Non-Medicated, and USA Produced. We were thrilled.
  • Raw Honey: Hives are never treated, not even with organic fumigants or chemicals.
  • Beyond Organic, Certified Naturally Grown Produce: No pesticides, herbicides, or fungicides.
