Faith Farms offers true young lamb at six months to the end user customer. The Sire is a registered Shetland and the Dams are cross bred Shetland and South Down. The lamb is sold cut, vacuum-packed and quick frozen. Lambs average about 30 to 40 pounds net weight and are shipped Fed-X or USPS Express Mail. The lambs, packaging (insulated with cardboard outer) are shipped after payment by money order or cashiers check. We are not set up yet for credit card payments.

Faith Farms produces about 30-40 lambs a season. They nurse their mothers in some cases up to slaughter and are left with their Dam the whole spring, summer and fall season. They feed on the luxurious native wild grasses interspersed with clovers and herbaceous plants. Graze time is usually six months out of the year, but all year long they have access to willow tips and other buds and native bushes. They are fed primarily native hay baled close to the mineral rich beaches where they live their lives in a placid stress free environment.

The meat is cut by a very experienced butcher and are dispatched quickly and humanely. We are not organically certified, but all of our land is managed with organic fertilizers (fish meal, fish bones, and crab shells produced locally). There are also green crops tilled under and and manure spread on the fields. Granulated kelp and beach peat from the sea (kelp) is also used for fertilization.

Faith Farms also offers raw wool, handmade soap, and a limited amount of Certified Garlic Seed and Certified Alaska Potato Seed. All seed has been certified by the State of Alaska and is Disease-Free.

Faith Farms only sells lambs to the person eating the product. Whole lambs must be purchased. Please call for more information. Watch and help us grow.

Top O'The Mount Farm produces grass-fed beef in Winslow, AR. We are a husband and wife team growing our beef in a nature-friendly environment.

Our cows are Charolais and Black Angus bred to a Black Angus bull. Our calves are born and raised on Sunset Mountain as they graze on 300 acres of pasture. We DO NOT use grain, chemicals, or animal by-products. Our cows get grass,minerals and salt, which are necessary for adequate nutrition....that's it!

When our beef reaches optimum weight, it is processed at a USDA facility where it hangs for 12-20 days. We get our tenderization from the hanging process. Once the meat is at peak for packaging, it is cut, packaged with vacuum seal, and frozen under USDA inspection, which assures the best quality of beef for our customers.

Farmers Markets: We sell our beef at the Farmer's Market in Ft. Smith at 2nd and Garrison March through November. In December through February, we have winter delivery twice a week. So, no matter the season, you can still get all your beef needs met.

Our cattle are unique in that we can date their lineage back to the 1820s via the American Shorthorn Association.

All of our cattle are raised on native grass and forage, breath clean, fresh mountain air, and drink from crystal clear streams and springs from the surrounding Cascade Mountain Range. Our beef is aged three weeks, cut, vacuum sealed, then flash-frozen before being shipped to you.

We invite you to browse our website and learn more about us, our heritage and history, and about the cattle we believe will provide you with the finest eating experience anywhere.

Brandon Natural Beef was formed in 2008 by San Francisco residents Bob and Lisa Carey to bring the taste of Colorado’s 100% grass fed, small ranch beef to market in the San Francisco Bay Area and beyond. We partner with Elin Parker Ganschow of Music Meadows Ranch in the Wet Mountain Valley near Westcliffe. Elin comes from several generations of ranchers and has been doing a grass fed program for over 10 years. She and her family recently placed Music Meadows under a conservation easement with the San Isabel Land Protection Trust. It will preserve the abundant natural resources and ranching on the property forever.

On Music Meadows, our cattle graze on 100% native alpine grass at the base of the Sangre de Cristo Mountains. They drink live water from mountain streams. Our cattle are never administered growth hormones or antibiotics, and do not spend time in feedlots. When customers purchase Brandon Natural Beef, they can be confident in the source of the beef and how it was processed. Elin personally selects each animal for our grass-fed program. She cares for each animal, and keeps comprehensive records—from genetics to veterinary—on each one.

Our cattle travel just 90 minutes for processing so they endure minimal stress. At the processing plant, bar codes ensure that Brandon Natural Beef stays segregated from other beef. These records allow product traceability and source verification. Our customers can be certain that they are getting humanely processed 100% grass-fed beef.

Our beef is superb tasting, tender, and sustainably raised in the small family ranching tradition. We provide fresh grass-fed beef to select San Francisco restaurants from September to early January. Our holiday roasts are also fresh. We sell frozen steaks, ground beef, slow-cook cuts and organ meats throughout the year.

We just kicked off our fifth season. You can join one of our monthly grass-fed beef club programs, which provide variety and value. You may also order specific packages of grass-fed, free-range steaks, short ribs, oxtails, brisket, ground beef, hot dogs, liver, heart and tongue, or a combo pack. Special gift packages are also available.

Our Bay Area Home Delivery program has been a huge success. We deliver free of charge to your door in San Francisco and the Bay Area. Outside SF, we ship Fed Ex Ground or 2nd Day Air. Our beef is also available at several local restaurants and stores; visit our website or Eatwild's California Beyond the Farm page for names and locations.

Douglas Ranch produces grassfed beef, lamb and pastured natural pork in a rural valley near Paicines, California near San Francisco/San Jose Bay Area.

The ranch is run by Rani and Don Douglas with organic practices and is sustainably managed. The pastures are not sprayed with chemicals and are kept lush with rotational grazing. Animals are treated humanely and are not confined in barns or small enclosures. Mothers and babies are sometimes briefly fenced away from other herd animals during the first few days of birth. They all enjoy the lush irrigated pastures as well as native natural pastures giving them daily choices of what they naturally prefer to browse on. The animals are never given antibiotics or hormones.

We raise Angus cattle (the meatiest and most tender), Dorper sheep (the mildest and tastiest), and several cross breeds and heritage Berkshire pigs (more marbling in the meat). Cattle and sheep are raised on grass only—no grain. Pigs are raised with free choice on pasture, and supplemented with organic milk and an organic feed supplement. The pigs are happiest when they are sampling grasses and forbes and allowed to wallow in cool pools of mud.

Animals are born and raised on the ranch, and are harvested humanely and taken to an organically certified processor. The meat is vacuum sealed and frozen at the plant to ensure you will receive the freshest products. Cuts are packaged in small quantities to allow our customers more flexibility for meals. Beef is gently aged for delicious flavor. The lamb meat is not “gamey” tasting because Dorpers are “hair” sheep with much less lanolin than wool sheep. This prevents the stronger taste many people object to in lamb. The pork cuts are very moist and delicious. Ham and bacon are naturally smoked without nitrates and nitrites. We sell meats in many sizes but most popular are the Sampler Pack, ½’s and ¼’s.

We deliver to most of the Bay Area, Santa Cruz, Monterey, San Benito counties, and we ship anywhere.

Full of Life Farm: Grass-fed, pastured, and corn/soy/GMO-free beef and pork, AWA logodelivers to Southern California, the SF Bay Area, and to Portland, OR.

The Willamette Valley soil, renown for its Pinot Noir vineyards, makes great beef too. You can taste it in our Angus and Hereford beef, the terroir's flavor underlies the animals’ health, and your health too. The meat's marbling attests to the nutritious grasses. We neither import water nor grass, and all grass and hay is grown on our small sustainable family farms according to our production protocol. Ruminating as they roam freely, until they reach harvest weight — no chemicals, hormones, pesticides, antibiotics are needed.

Hogs, mostly Berkshire, also are free to roam, root, forage, and wallow all of their lives on small, family-owned, sustainable farms where pigs can be pigs (i.e. small social groups, free to roam, fed a non-GMO, soy and corn-free feed of peas, organic wheat, and rice bran as a supplement to their pasture forage). Outside on pasture during most of the year, but with shelter available in winter months with deep, clean straw.

Our animals are processed in a small family-owned abattoir nearby. Every animal, and the butchering process, is assessed and monitored by a permanent USDA inspector. The abattoir is certified by Animal Welfare Approved. Beef is hung to cold-dry age 3 weeks. Pork bacon and sausages contain no artificial preservatives.

We believe animals should be treated humanely and ethically. They should have access to fresh air, clean water, green grass, and sunshine. We know that a healthy environment and gentle handling grow healthy animals – animals without disease and stress.

We bring you Oregon's best meat direct from farms, delivered to your table.

Heartfelt Foods Gourmet Pet Treats is located in Northwest California's beautiful Humboldt County where we manufacture organic grass-fed all-beef jerky-stick dog treats. Using only local free-range Humboldt grassfed beef we combine human food-grade ground beef with organic grass-fed beef heart and liver. That's it! What dogs evolved to eat and the reason they have sharp teeth, Meat!

Heartfelt Foods uses nothing but real beef because we believe that dogs were not meant to digest grains, wheat flour, crude protein, or some of the other fillers that you'll find in many pet products. These products have ingredients in them which can, over time, contribute to skin conditions and allergic reactions in your pet. Besides, dogs didn't evolve with sharp teeth so they could eat wheat-flour biscuits!

Our dog treats are so good that there's really no reason you shouldn't try them. Seriously, they're good enough that you can eat them and your dogs will absolutely go nuts for them! There is nothing in our product that people wouldn’t eat themselves, so it has to be a better product for their dogs. Every ounce contains approximately 1/4 pound of beef before cooking!

Heartfelt Foods uses only free-range organic grass-fed beef products to make our treats. There are no hormones, antibiotics, or steroids in our ingredients and we don't use any preservatives or seasonings. They are the closest thing to raw beef that you can give your dog, with no funny stuff. And that’s why we say that Heartfelt Foods is “People Food For Your Pets!” Made from 100% meat with nothing weird.

Treats are a vailable in one and three ounce packages, or you can buy a whole pound. Orders usually ship within two business days. Please visit our website to order.

The Lindner Bison brand means premium grassfed bison meat. Just as nature intended.

Lindner Bison forage on northern California grasses in the spring and summer, then hay (dried grass) during winter months. No feedlots, animal by-products, hormones, or antibiotics are used!

Our holistic and humane management practices include a low stress, “hands-off” approach. Bulls remain with cows year-round, creating their own natural breeding cycle and keeping in sync with Mother Nature to produce robust offspring.

All meat is dry aged 14–21 days, then frozen and either vacuum packaged or double-wrapped with clean plastic and freezer paper. Only USDA or state HACCP-approved processors are used.

Our grassfed bison meat can be purchased three ways: 1) per item; 2) shares of 40 & 20 pounds assorted boneless steaks, roasts, and burger; and 3) quarters, halves or whole.

The Lost Coast Ranch is located on slopes overlooking the Pacific Ocean, straddling the Mattole River in Humboldt County, California—the northern end of BLM's Lost Coast Trail. Pastures have green feed year round owing to the abundant winter rains and periodic summer fogs. Temperatures are moderate, very rarely below freezing and not exceeding 80 degrees F in summer.

Our herd of CCOF certified organic grass fed beef enjoy the peace of an ocean view and extremely low stress management. Cow families are kept together, rather than separated according to age and size. Density is low and we employ rotational grazing, moving them on horseback, and not by trailer. We like the animals entrusted to our care to have the same stress-free life we choose for ourselves.

If you would like to purchase meat directly from us, we offer quarter, half or whole beef or boxed select cuts. Shipping is by FedEx 2nd Day delivery anywhere in the US or you can pick meat up on the ranch.

There's a lot more to our practices, philosophy and product than can fit on this entry. So, if you are interested, give us a call or e-mail. You can also come visit us and enjoy life on the ranch, beach or river.

Massa Natural Meats: All Natural, Hormone and Antibiotic-free, 100% grass-fed beef and lamb grown in the valley and foothills of Northern California. For over forty years, the Massa Family has been actively involved in the beef industry, beginning with a small herd of registered Angus cattle in the 70s. After searching for a healthier alternative for their own family’s diet, Duane and Wendy Massa realized there was a real need in the market for naturally-raised meats, so Massa Natural Meats was born!

The Massa’s operate a multi-species farm with cattle, horses, sheep, and pigs, raised naturally on pasture using sustainable farming practices. We are truly a family operation. Duane and Wendy personally take a hands-on role with every aspect of the business, from breeding and raising, to customer-service, marketing and shipping. Through selective breeding and careful range management, we are uniquely creating a group of animals that have become a healthy and sustainable alternative to factory farm practices. We did this for a love of the lifestyle, the outdoors, the animals, and to support our ancestral diet by producing quality natural meats that you just can’t find in a store.

Our customers enjoy knowing that the Massa Ranches in rural Glenn County are active participants in numerous conservation efforts geared towards agricultural sustainability. We are actively converting water wells to solar power, providing additional habitat for wildlife, and are embarking on a project with the Xerces Society to propagate wildflowers in a effort to recover native pollinator species.

We are proud to offer fresh, all natural grass-fed beef and lamb directly to the consumer. Plans are underway to add pasture-raised heritage pork, chickens and heritage turkeys too. All our meat is inspected and processed by a USDA approved facility. Our beef is dry aged for a full 21 days. We offer our meat by the individual cut or packages of a 1/8, 1/4, or 1/2 beef. Local delivery and nationwide shipping is available.

From our family to yours. We look forward to sharing our healthy, flavorful, tender meats we’re sure you’ll enjoy!

2 miles from the sea. We offer pasture raised, grass-fed Muscovy duckling, certified organic by California Certified Organic Farmers.

Scott River Ranch Grass-Fed Organic Beef is a healthier and more flavorful choice for you, your family, and the environment. Our beef is born and raised on a family owned ranch near the Russian Peak WIlderness area in Northern California. Our animals are fed only USDA certified organic grass and hay from our own pastures. This allows us to minimize the stress on the animal, reduce the environmental cost of transportation, and eliminate any antibiotics or growth stimulants.

Our beef is USDA certified start to finish, and dry aged from 21+ days locally. This allows natural enzymes to tenderize the meat, and give it the delicious flavor which our parents and grandparents once enjoyed. It is then vacuum packed and frozen. Our beef is only available in individual retail cuts. We make local deliveries and ship UPS Air.

We are happy to assist you with your beef purchase, and answer any questions you may have. We want to be your own personal farmer giving you a connection to our land and way of life. We invite you to browse our website and learn more about us, our heritage and history, and about the cattle we believe will provide you with the finest eating experience anywhere.

Chilancoh Ranch is an historic cattle ranch established in 1887 by the Bayliff family, who still own and operate the ranch today. We are located in the pristine and isolated Chilcotin plateau, in the interior of BC, Canada, and welcome visitors.

We sell natural, grass-fed beef that is produced sustainably using environmentally sound practices, no chemical fertilizers, herbicides, pesticides, growth hormones or antibiotics (except when medically necessary). Our cattle graze wild grasses and herbs on range and pasture lands in the spring, summer and fall, and bale-graze on pastures in the winter, fertilizing our lands as they go.

Cattle are treated humanely and we use low-stress handling practices. We partner with Rodear Meats, a local, licensed, and provincially inspected abattoir located in Beaver Valley, east of Williams Lake, to provide our high quality cuts and products. Chilancoh Ranch provides healthy, nutritionally-packed beef full of omega 3s, CLAs, vitamin E, and more for the health of our customers.

Beef can be ordered in various sized packages, as well as by the quarter and the side, throughout the year. Shipping to anywhere in BC can be arranged for the customer and is paid for by the customer. It may be possible for the Ranch to deliver larger orders for buying clubs. Also, we encourage customers to come out to the Ranch: camping can be arranged, and we can make recommendations for activities and sights to see in our beautiful, wild Chilcotin.

Grandview Farms is a family run farm sitting atop the Beaver Valley and Georgian Bay. We are a Certified Organic farm with over 400 acres of pastures that have been grazed by animals for over 25 years. We raise grass fed beef cattle, angus and Wagyu, as well as pasture raised heritage breeds of pork.

Grandview does a few things differently than any other farm. First, we plant annual grasses to supplement our animals diet through the hot months of the summer. The animals will roam through the tall annual grasses prior to the grasses reaching seed stage, and will therefore be able to gain weight through the hot summer months, an unusual occurrence when pastures tend to stop growing from the heat. Second, we finish our cattle on locally grown apples and pears to promote meat that is not only very balanced nutritionally, but is very well marbled. The result is Pork and Beef that is second to none in terms of taste and nutritional profile (our beef tests at 3.9 to 1, omega-6 to omega-3 fatty acids, a rate almost as good as wild game and 300% better than feedlot meat).

We of course do not allow anti-biotics or growth stimulants (hormones) anywhere near our animals and we provide them with the best possible living conditions, including wood lots and ponds for the hot summer days. We focus on animal welfare from birth to slaughter, and take great efforts to make sure that all of our animals live in the most pleasant and humane conditions for their entire lives.

Grandview offers boxed meat ordering (random sampling of cuts), or you can order specific cuts that your family desires. We deliver in the GTA and can ship frozen across Canada. We sell our meat directly through our website or by emailing us at orders@grandviewfarms.ca.

On TK Ranch we believe that nutrient-dense foods offer people a diet that supports good health and a strong immune system. We offer consumers dry-aged Alberta grass-fed beef, grass-fed lamb and heritage pasture raised pork. Our cattle and sheep are not fed any grain – we use the pasture model from birth to slaughter.

Our animals are born, raised and fed outside on large native grass pastures. Unlike organic and conventional grain finished beef and lamb, our animals are never confined in feedlots. Our animals never receive antibiotics, animal by-products, chemical insecticides, growth hormones or ionophores. Our land is never sprayed with chemical herbicides, pesticides or fertilizers.

We fence sensitive riparian habitat, use solar waterers and manage for endangered and threatened species. We are involved with wildlife rescue, rehabilitation and release. We have received several awards for our commitment to the environment including the 2010 National Prairie Conservation Award.

We also have a strong commitment to animal welfare – we calve and lamb during the warm spring and summer. We use freeze brands on our cattle, practice low stress livestock handling, and move our animals frequently onto fresh pastures. Our sows are not kept in farrowing or gestation crates – they are allowed to nest naturally and and are not separated from their piglets at any time. Their piglets are not weaned until 12 weeks of age. Our beef and pork (and soon lamb) is certified humane by the British Columbia SPCA. We use a small government inspected family owned abattoir and personally handle our animals right to slaughter to ensure they are treated humanely and with respect.

Our products are available retail in Airdrie, Calgary, Edmonton and Stony Plain in several health food stores. Customers can also order direct from us. We personally deliver to our customers located in Edmonton and Calgary and surrounding areas. We ship via refrigerated truck across Canada.

Hanover Dexter Cattle Company at Rockin' B Ranch began raising grass-fed, organic (non-certified), registered Dexter cattle on 100 acres nearly 10 years ago. We soon discovered that independent taste tests and nutritional research demonstrated that Dexter beef had exceptional taste and tenderness and outstanding nutritional benefits as compared to larger breeds—even Angus. We still sell by the half and whole, but with fewer families having a dedicated freezer, we began selling Dexter beef in small packages and shipping throughout the U.S.

Our animals graze native pastures of eastern Colorado and are fed a variety of native hays during the winter months. As stewards of nature we never administer antibiotics or growth hormones to our cattle nor ever use chemicals on the land. By moving the herd every 5 days during the growing season we allow the grasses to recover and rejuvenate; the cattle consistently drink from fresh water sources year-round. Spring calves are born in the pastures as nature intended. Cattle are never confined and fed grain or similar supplemental feed unless a customer requests grain-finished and purchases the entire animal.

We have daily contact with all our animals. That familiarity creates a herd that is gentle and contented, resulting in more flavorful meat. The short distance to the USDA processing plant in Colorado Springs reduces the stress of transportation. We ship our variety packaged meat in reusable insulated boxes with reusable freezer bricks, eliminating any chemical concerns with dry-ice. Please contact us for delivery options.

Beef is usually processed in October/November when they are about 20 months of age. Please do not wait until the Fall to order as quantities are limited.

The James Ranch faced a fork in the road in 1992. Should the three families living on the land turn the land into a golf course and housing development for the rapidly growing Durango community, or should they devote themselves to grassfarming instead? The land had been in the James family since 1961, the family was very attached to it, and the third generation was just coming up. After spending two years considering all aspects—most importantly the impact on the family and grandchildren—they chose grassfarming.

Today their many grateful customers rely on their grassfed beef. The beef is available by mail and you are invited to view our website to place an order.

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.

Shipping is available.

Florida

Florida Fresh Beef Company, conveniently located in North Central Florida, produces 100% gourmet grass fed, organically raised, Aberdeen Angus beef from free-range cattle that are raised on 850 acres of lush shaded pasture in Citra, Florida. They feast on a salad bar of pesticide-free "gourmet" forage including clover, wheat, oat and rye grass.

The cattle are then harvested not more than 40 miles away at a USDA inspected facility. Once processed, the carcasses are hung in an air ventilated refrigerated locker for up to 28 days for our "old school" dry-aging process. This process naturally tenderizes the meat and enhances its taste. The beef is then cut into gourmet roasts, steaks and Angus Burger—a local Ocala favorite. Each cut of beef, whether roast or steak, is individually packed in a vacuum bag and air sealed for freshness. Beef is available by the individual cut, various Variety Packs (saving $$$), or by the whole, half, quarter or eighth beef.

Florida Fresh Beef Company, established in 2008, is proud to be one of the first companies in almost 20 years to produce fresh local meat available to the public under USDA inspection. Our relationships with various like-minded grass-fed cattle ranchers throughout the state have allowed us to develop a consistent supply of healthy, delicious, local Florida beef available in bulk or individual cuts throughout the year.

Florida Fresh Beef Company ships throughout the state of Florida, Georgia, the Bahamas and US Virgin Islands, as well as the continental USA. A South Florida supply outlet is currently in development for the distribution of both regular and Glatt Kosher beef. We have also sucessfully developed a share program for CSA’s and Buying Clubs. We can divide a carcass into 8 or 16 equal shares to make it affordable for families to get the benefit of buying the bulk beef in smaller quantities while still saving. We do the shipping!

Visit our website for information on how to order and to locate farmers markets where you can buy our beef.

Grandmother's Farm is a natural sustainable grass based farm cared for by my wife and I with our seven children. The farm name is a tribute to "Bami," the children's grandmother, who loved the beauty of the farm and having her grandchildren be part of it with her.

We offer brown eggs year around from happy hens that forage on all-natural pastures. Duck eggs will be available in the fall of 2004. Pastured poultry—chickens and turkeys—are available October through June and must be pre-booked well in advance of pick up. Although we are not certified organic, all of our pastures are managed organically and we do not use hormones, steroids, antibiotics or chemical wormers in our production. Our pastures are fertilized and kept pest-free strictly by organic methods.

Pure, raw, organically produced honey is available most of the summer. We also offer pure maple syrup that comes from a family farm in New Hampshire that uses no formaldehyde in their production. There are limited amounts of grassfed lamb available and we are increasing the flock for greater availability. We have premium quality, guaranteed tender, grassfed and grass finished beef available by the cut for shipping to your door—anywhere in the United States. Depending on the time of year, you may also find organically grown herbs, vegetables, hanging baskets, Stevia, and fruit, flowering and rare trees.

Other than the grassfed beef, all of our products are picked up here at the farm so e-mail us for an availability list. Visitors are always welcome—just call first to make sure we are available. For those of you in Florida, we now offer organic landscape management and pasture restoration services under the name GrassWorks. We can get you off the water polluting and health destroying monthly chemical spray and fertilization treadmill.

Pasture Prime Wagyu produces 100% Grass-fed WAGYU “American Kobe” Beef.

We are among only a handful of farms in this country that produce 100% grass-fed Wagyu beef. The majority of our herd is purebred Wagyu. Over 90% of Wagyu meat produced in this country is only 50% Wagyu, which can lead to an inconsistent product.

Our Wagyu herd was obtained from the Blue Rock Cattle Co. owned by Jerry Pittenger, a founding father of the Wagyu breed in this country. Our family has been farming on the same homestead since 1976 with a commitment and passion for providing the highest quality products nature will allow. We spent 27 years in the dairy business before transitioning to sustainably raised beef, pork and poultry.

We are certified annually by the American Grass Fed Association and Animal Welfare Approved. We never use any antibiotics, hormones, or animal byproducts and all animals are treated with care and respect.

We raise several heritage breeds of hogs: Berkshire (Korobuta), Chester Whites, and Mangalitsa—the world famous “wooly pigs” from Austria and Hungary. These animals spend most of their days in over 20 acres of wood, foraging for nuts, roots, and insects in addition to their supplemental feeds. The farm-produced bacon, sausage and delicious meats are beyond compare.

We also offer Pasture Raised Heritage White chickens. These birds are fed on a NON-GMO ration and taste like “chicken” is supposed to taste. We process regularly on the farm and can also provide free-range eggs (for pick-up only).

See the Web Store on our website for a list of our products. Meat products can be ordered individually, vacuum packed and frozen. If you don’t see what you want, call/email as we can supply a number of additional items.

Meat purchases can be ordered and picked up @ the Brownwood Farmers Market in The Villages, FL. every Saturday or by appointment at the farm. We also ship by FedEx anywhere in the country. Most Florida FedEx deliveries are normally Next Day.

Many local fine dining establishments have featured our meats. Contact us for restaurant purchasing information.

Homestead Natural Foods LLC is a co-operative of four ranching families that have joined together to bring real food to health-conscious consumers. We’ve gone back to raising cattle, pigs and poultry the way our grandparents did: born and bred on natural pasture, with no hormones or antibiotics.

Homestead Natural beef is raised antibiotic free, growth stimulant/hormone free, and grain/corn free and are all raised from birth to finish on a grass diet.

Homestead Natural pork is raised 100% free range and fed a minimal amount of barley, no corn, soy beans or GMO feeds.

Homestead Natural poultry products are raised free range on grass pasture and fed a minimal amount of grain.

Cattle, pigs and poultry raised in “concentrated animal feeding operations” (CAFOs) may cost less at the checkout stand, but you pay a high price in taste and nutrition. You see, beef, pork and chicken raised on natural pasture don’t just taste better… they’re better for you. And when it comes to flavor, just ask the folks who have eaten our beef, pork or chicken at Idaho restaurants like the Red Feather Lounge, Bitter creek Alehouse, Café d’Paris, Jenny's Lunch Line, Lucky 13, St. Luke’s Hospital in Boise, Galena Lodge, Segos and CKs in Sun Valley, Brick 29 in Nampa and Bon Appetit in Caldwell.

Beef, pork and chicken raised with sustainable agricultural practices may cost more, but like our grandparents would have told you, you get what you pay for. And when it comes to your health, isn’t that worth a little extra?

Lava Lake Lamb is 100% natural Idaho grass-fed lamb – never placed in a feed lot, never given any hormones, never given antibiotics.

Our lambs graze with their mothers and continue to drink mother’s milk all their lives, getting important antibodies for good health and vitality, and making the best-tasting meat. Lava Lake’s lambs also spend most of their lives grazing on wild, fragrant range grasses, herbs and other plants, as Nature intended.

Raised with care by our experienced shepherds, our lambs are truly “free-range.” Traveling from the deserts of the Snake River Plain to the high mountains near Sun Valley, our animals log hundreds of miles during their lifetimes – they are never confined in feedlots. The result is meat that is lean yet tender and flavorful – we think you’ll find it the best you’ve tasted.

Our headquarters is Lava Lake Ranch, located just southeast of Sun Valley in Idaho’s Pioneer Mountains.

We ensure all animals are not given hormones, antibiotics, animal byproducts or drugs of any kind. This we have done since 1991.

Animals are processed only after they are ordered. The cut, wrapped and frozen finished product can then be picked up at the farm or UPS shipping can be arranged.

2005 plans include pastured pork, chickens and eggs.

The Koether Ranch offers grassfed beef on a year-round basis. We have been organic since 1985, but are not certified. We prefer to sell quarters or split halves, but we sell individual packages as well. We usually ship frozen meat 2nd Day Air in special containers.

Our goal is to provide the best possible care and diet for our animals so that our customers can get the healthiest possible meat. The cattle never eat grain. They eat fresh grass from April thru November and winter on dry hay. They are fed a combination of kelp, minerals, and refined natural salt year- round. We complete the cattle's life cycle with humane slaughter. They are killed in our corral while standing quietly and then are hauled to the processing facility. This prevents any unnecessary stress on the animal.

We usually harvest our beef in late October – early November when the animals are 16 months old. We like to have large orders placed prior to slaughter, but we try to keep a supply of frozen meat on hand year-round. We also have lamb, goat and broiler chickens as well.

This year we are looking to sell 300-400 head of Katahdin breeding stock. They are all naturally raised with no vaccines or wormers. For any further details, please feel free to call anytime.

Colcord Farms–Blue Grass Finished Beef® dedicates 630 acres to raising grass and clover for their 400–500 black steers. "Our calves come to the farm in the fall soon after they are weaned. In April, they begin to grow rapidly on the springtime nourishing grasses and clovers. No pesticides or herbicides are used on the forage. The grass grows naturally without being pumped up with nitrogen fertilizer. The steers move from field to field with new pasture every few days. The water flows from the farm springs, wells, and ponds with no added chemicals. The slow movement across the rich fields means they can be finished as succulent marbled beef without any grain. The fresh grass gives them a healthy balance of fat and lean and special flavor."

The beef is USDA-approved for supply to restaurants, retail outlets, and direct sale to consumers. Look for it in Lexington, KY at the Good Foods Co-Op and at the Blue Moon Farm stall at the Lexington Farmers Market. In Louisville, KY the beef is sold at the three Rainbow Blossom stores.

Sides of beef are available at the processing plant. (Call for more information.) Refrigerated transport is available to supply retail outlets in Lexington, Louisville, and Cincinnati.

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.

Massachusetts

Chase Hill Farm: The Organic Farmstead Cheese from Chase Hill Farm is handcrafted in small batches from fresh top quality raw milk. We use exclusively the organic-certified milk from our own herd of grassfed cows. Our Original Farmstead Cheese is mild like a Colby or Havarti cheese, but with a unique flavor that retains the "character" of our raw milk. Our cheese has a sweet, creamy flavor and a buttery yellow color that comes from our green grass. We also make a Farmstead Cheese with Garlic, some with Chives, Cheddar, and recently started making 1/2 lb. Organic Camembert rounds.

Chase Hill Farm is an organic-certified family farm in the Pioneer Valley of western Massachusetts. Mark and Jeannette Fellows manage the farm as a grass-based seasonal dairy. Our mission is to produce quality local food from grassfed cows using sustainable low input practices. These practices include rotational grazing, seasonal calving, and using draft horsepower.

Our herd of 30 Jersey, Normandy and Holstein cows milk seasonally from March to December. We feed organic grain for about 8 weeks from calving until grass is ready here in northern Massachusetts, but the rest of the year cows are 100% grassfed.

Our Organic Farmstead Cheeses are available in local stores and farmstands in western Massachusetts, and in some of the Boston-area Bread & Circus stores. We also ship our cheeses. Wheels run around 8 lbs. each. Cost: $50/wheel plus $10/UPS shipping.

Bluebird Meadows Farm is dedicated to raising grass-fed sheep and lamb.

We have a flock of 100+ ewes, and they live on lush, green pastures throughout the entire growing season and on into December. During the winter we feed them high quality hay raised and baled by us on our farm. They have most of their lambs on pasture in May, the very best time for a lamb to be born, and the lambs stay with the mother rotating to a new pasture every 1 to 5 days until fall. By keeping them on pasture with their mothers, we produce a very mild flavored, young, tender, lean lamb.

We have the lambs butchered and processed by a local, family-owned processing plant, and it is USDA-certified to be sold either by the package frozen or by the whole or half lamb. If you purchase a whole or half lamb, it can be custom processed and cut to your specifications. We can ship frozen lamb, or you may also pick it up at our farm. We also attend the Hillsdale County Farmers Market, Saturdays, 8am–noon, mid-May through October.

There is an old farmhouse on the farm, which we run as a bed and breakfast (see bbonline.com/mi/bluebird),. This offers a unique opportunity to experience the farm life. Some families like to come and spend the weekend on the farm and pick up their meat at that time.

Blackberry Ridge, LLC Eco-Farm & Ranch is owned and operated by one small family. We started five years ago to create a Bio-diverse, Biodynamic, Organic, Sustainable, and Permiculture Eco-system—a self-contained farm where the animals fertilize the land and the resulting living soil and grasslands feed the animals.

We have introduced eight different animal species to roam our land. Many are Heritage or endangered breeds. These include: 100% GrassFed Galloway Cattle and Sheep (fiber, meat, and milk); Free-Range, Pastured Hogs, Chickens, and Turkeys; Horses; and Great Pyrenees guard Dogs.

As members of the Cherokee Tribe, we work in Harmony with the wildlife in our woods to increase wild habitat and bio-diversity. We have encouraged the re-growth of native vegetation, and will add more diverse plants each year, creating a permiculture. The animals have opportunity to eat the foods they would eat in the wild, while finding the most pure, Certified Organic sources for any feed we must give. We feed NO Grain to our Beef and Lamb!

NO ANTIBIOTICS, ANTIPARISITES, ADDED HORMONES, PESTICIDES, HERBICIDES, or ARTIFICIAL FERTILIZERS

Optimum health is achieved by humane treatment (we don’t ‘cut’ our animals), fresh grass, herbs, sunshine and air, and a reliance on nature before we intervene. We believe this creates optimum nourishment in the foods that we nourish ourselves with and optimum life in the environment we live in.

Galloway beef rated #1 in taste and #2 in tenderness by UW tests. It is USDA processed and dry aged for 18 days by a small family butcher, then cut and froze individually. Purchase our meats at our farm, at Natural Food Stores in LaCrosse, WI and in the Minneapolis area. Shipping is available.

Green Pastures Dairy, owned and operated by the Hedquist Family, offers Minnesota Farmstead™ 100% grass-fed, all natural, raw milk cheese. Spring through fall we milk our totally grass-fed cows and use this highly nutritious milk to make our hand-crafted cheeses.

Cows are ruminant animals with a digestive system designed to utilize forage, so we don't feed any grain to our cows. They are given fresh, new pasture daily.

As a result of these practices, our milk is high in CLA, natural vitamins, and has a balanced fatty acid ratio. All of our cheeses are carefully made to maintain and maximize the nutrition and quality of our milk.

Our cheese is made never heating the milk over 100F in order to retain all the natural enzymes and ensure the availability of milks' health giving nutrients, making it a true raw milk cheese.

Our cheese is made from milk that is not altered in any way. It is never pasteurized, homogenized, or standardized. It is all aged a minimum of 60 days, with the some aged as long as 4 years. Our cheeses are available year round. Orders may be placed by phone, or online. We ship throughout the US every week.

On our five-generation family farm of rolling Missouri hills, tree-shaded pastures, spring-fed ponds, waterfalls, and a winding stretch of the Little Sac River, we raise all-natural 100% grass and clover-fed, pasture-finished beef cattle from a closed herd of original Black Angus stock started here 30 years ago.

Pure Pasture Beef is for people with the highest standards of quality and safety, who believe that informed food choices can enhance their physical well-being and enrich their everyday lives. Pure Pasture Beef is processed locally in a USDA Missouri certified organic facility, going from farm to table.

Practicing a sustainable approach to cattle management and land use here in the heart of Ozark Mountain foothills country, we rotate our cattle from one pasture to the next on a regular basis so they're grazing on clean, fresh grass (along with roaming bands of white-tailed deer and wild turkey). We cut and bale our own red clover, alfalfa, orchard grass and brome that we feed as hay in the winter; we feed the salt and minerals; we monitor all animal health; we check the water; we wean the babies. We do it all ourselves. Nothing gets between us and our cattle.

Sassafras Valley Farm raises free-range Embden geese and Rouen ducks on our family farm in Gasconade County, Missouri.

We practice Low Impact Sustainable Agriculture (LISA) to raise geese and ducks in a traditional and environmentally sensitive fashion. We maintain a population density of less than 36 birds per acre to provide them with continuous access to fresh pasture and water. Our pastures have been carefully planted with a mixture of grasses and other plants that reflect the traditional diet of domesticated geese and ducks in harmony with the requirements of the local microclimate. Our birds are raised in a chemical free, pesticide free, hormone free environment.

Unfortunately, in the U.S., availability of dressed geese and ducks is limited due to the relative difficulty of raising them in high density confinement. Our geese and ducks are raised on free-range and natural pasture in the same traditional way that domesticated waterfowl have been raised since their original descent from their wild forbears.

Predator control (typically coyotes, feral dogs, and hawks) is accomplished through the efforts of several Great Pyrenees livestock guardian dogs rather than by trapping, poisoning, or shooting.

Rouen ducks are a slower maturing heritage breed with plumage similar to Mallards. They are considerably smaller than the more common Pekin ducks sold through most market outlets, and are less greasy as well as superior in flavor.

Embden geese are the traditional, large white geese familiar from pictures and folklore. Our Embdens are very low in fat due to their natural diet and healthy, outdoor living conditions.

Our geese and ducks are humanely processed in a USDA certified facility and available for purchase and shipment frozen via UPS 2nd Day Air throughout the U.S. Sassafras Valley Farm geese and ducks are also available through several local outlets in the Hermann and Saint Louis Missouri area. Consult our website for details.

Sassafras Valley Farm is proud to be certified by the prestigious Animal Welfare Approved organization.

La Cense Beef® is all natural and 100% grass-fed, grass-finished beef. Our quality approach begins with the La Cense Master Ranchers at the 88,000 acre La Cense Montana Ranch located in Dillon, Montana.

Like many organic beef producers, La Cense Beef® is allowed to gain weight naturally. Black Angus cattle are raised to an age of about 18 months without hormones, spending their lives grazing solely pesticide free, natural pastures.

Our all grass-fed beef is not produced from cattle raised by a consortium of other ranchers. In this manner, La Cense is able to oversee quality production and adherence to its standards for humane care, as well as ensure that La Cense Black Angus cattle roam free and are never crowded, which reduces the chance of contamination or transmission of disease.

La Cense free range, grass-fed beef is dry aged for 19 days to round out flavor and enhance tenderness and then hand cut and trimmed with care by skilled artisan butchers. Your order of La Cense dry aged prime meat is immediately frozen and vacuum-packed at the time of processing at a USDA certified plant, to ensure that you receive the highest quality Black Angus dry aged beef online.

Natural grass-fed beef from La Cense can be purchased year-round in a variety of gourmet cuts via the web at www.LaCenseBeef.com or call 1-866-442-2333. All orders placed can be shipped overnight or two-day air.

Uncle Kevin’s Lamb shepherds our lamb in the Shield’s Valley and around the Livingston, MT area. We use many organic practices but are not yet certified organic. We are however, certified through American Grassfed Association and Western Sustainability Exchange. Our lambs are grass fed, grass finished, never fed grain nor treated with any antibiotics or hormones. We raise them in a low stress environment that anyone would love. Also, while many ranches have lambing season happen mid-winter, we plan our lambing season to start mid-April—it’s easier on the animals and means they will soon have fresh green grass to graze on.

We also focus on keeping our environmental impact as low as possible by practicing Intensive Grazing Management, herding our animals into a limited pasture area, where they graze quickly, and then move on. Our grazing practices ensure that plants are not over grazed, and plants have adequate recovery time thereby saving the landscape. All of our lamb is processed at a local USDA certified facility lowering our carbon foot print with less transport needed.

We offer all cuts of lamb, including half and whole lambs, through our website, year round, with flat rate shipping anywhere in the United States, and free shipping on orders over $250. We ship via FedEx 2-day so, you can always be sure your order will arrive still frozen and in prime condition.

Nebraska

The Anoka-Butte Lumber Company - Marlowe Farm's is a small grass based farm located in the hills of Northern Nebraska. The Anoka-Butte Lumber Company was owned and operated by my family from 1936-1993. I am in the process of resurrecting it. Hogs and cattle were a part the family business.

I moved onto this farm in August of 2003. I raise cattle, sheep and pigs. All animals are raised on pasture. Cattle and sheep are fed exclusively grass and a limited amount of hay in the winter months. The cows, sheep and pigs are rotated through a series of paddocks. The pigs are fed varying amounts of grain depending on class. Sows and gilts graze/forage for the bulk of their diet with some corn fed as an energy supplement and to keep them docile. Growing pigs are fed a ground corn/soybean ration. Low-grain pork and No-grain pork are available upon request.

By keeping livestock in the pastures manure is spread evenly across the ground. What manure is collected around the barns is spread on my poorest ground. I'm hoping the application of manure to my poorest ground will in time make it some of my best ground.

At this time I only have pork available for sale. I do ship.

The Perfect "10" Buffalo Ranch has 5,000 acres of certified organic prairie grasses sustaining a herd of 800 grass-finished bison.

The end result is a low stress, healthy environment similar to the open plains of hundreds of years ago.

The Hutchinsons offer their "Tatonka Gourmet Bison" in quarters, halves, and whole animals. Individual cuts, 20# packages, and summer sausage are available as well. The meat is sold in Lincoln, Nebraska at the Ideal Grocery, Aikin's Health Food Store, and Open Harvest.

GAP Level 4 means the cows are pasture centered, have an enriched environment, and are not crowded. The cattle regularly rotate pastures to ensure they get the most nutrient rich forage and grasses, and to allow the land to recover between grazing.

Pure Indian Foods is a small family-owned business that takes pride in making an exceptional quality grass-fed and certified organic Ghee. Golden colored Ghee is prepared by melting and simmering butter until all the water evaporates and the milk solids settle at the bottom. The remaining butter oil is very stable, giving it a high smoke point which makes it an excellent choice for deep fat frying, baking and sautéing. Because of the low moisture content, it can be stored without refrigeration for 2-3 months. Many people find our ghee, with its rich, nutty flavor, to be tastier than butter.

We make our ghee fresh, with care, in small batches, right here in the USA. Our products are USDA Certified Organic. We use butter made only in Springtime through the Fall, when the cows are actually out on the pasture eating fresh green grass. We make our ghee only on the waxing or full moon days which are auspicious in the ancient Vedic system. We use glass bottles instead of plastic bottles to avoid dangerous toxic chemicals from leeching from plastic containers. Our family has been in the ghee business in India for 5 generations, since 1889, and we are proudly continuing that tradition.

Ghee has been used for its health-giving and healing properties for thousands of years. In Ayurveda (the “science of life”), cow ghee is considered one of the most sacred foods.

Ghee is the best cooking oil as it is stable at higher temperatures, and it enhances the flavor of spices and herbs. Ghee is free of casein and lactose and is suitable for people who are allergic to dairy products. It keeps skin soft, and has anti-aging properties. Ghee contains naturally occurring CLA, Omega-3, Vitamins A, D, E & K2. It is free of harmful trans-fats.

Ghee is shelf-stable and we ship worldwide by USPS, UPS, FedEx or DHL. We offer special discounts to co-ops and buying clubs.

Ranney Ranch is a family-owned Angus beef cattle ranch in the high mesa country of central New Mexico in operation since 1968. This is our third year direct-marketing Grass-fed/Grass-finished beef both locally and nationwide.

Our cattle graze year-round on native grasses on our open range pastures. We believe in sustainable grassland management and use rotational grazing practices. We gather our calves on horseback in the fall and are committed to the preservation of the Western ranching tradition. Our calves get no grain, hormones or antibiotics; they are never confined to a feedlot. They are humanely handled at the Ranch and by Fort Sumner Processing, a family-owned, fully certified processor.

Our customers are pleased by the taste and tenderness of our beef. It is low in fat and cholesterol, high in the vitamins, CLA's and omega fatty acids found in fully grass-fed/grass-finished beef.

We offer half and full beeves for sale on our website or by directly contacting Nancy Ranney via e-mail. Our beef is dry-aged and packaged to customer specifications. We ship FedEx nationwide. A half beef yields approximately 100 lbs. and fits in a large cooler.

Come on down to the Ranch where the West still lives.

Shepherd's Lamb is a family operation that grows certified organic lamb in the old tradition, moving with the seasons. This allows the ewes and lambs access to fresh feed at all times and ensures the long-term good health of the range.

Lambs are born on the spring range, and then the band is trailed to high mountain pastures where they graze all summer on lush native mountain grasses, forbs, and shrubs.

Our product is available year round in limited quantities. We sell whole, half or individual cuts of lamb at Farmers Markets, to natural food stores, and to restaurants in New Mexico, and by mail order to anywhere else! Orders can be placed by phone or e-mail. See our website for more details.

spahn & friends Bison Ranch LLC, sells grass-fed, all-natural buffalo meat.

We have raised bison since 1998 on Trinchera Pass, NM. We handle them as little as possible, and guarantee they are not subject to questionable drugs, chemicals or hormones. For numerous customers with various diseases bison is the only choice for (red) meat. Bison meat is heart-healthy and recommended to patients (see “The Dakota Diet” written by Dr. K. Weiland, and the American Heart Association). It’s the best diet for athletes (high in protein), women (lots of iron), kids and seniors (essential fatty acids, low fat).

Bison meat tastes great. Bison is naturally juicy and tender and can be interchanged with beef in almost any recipe. A lower temperature should be used as bison is very lean and will cook more quickly. It has nutritional advantages over other meats—you get more protein with fewer calories and less fat. There is less shrinking in your pan because of no marbling fat.

We process our bison at a USDA inspected facility. After 10-14 days hanging the carcass is cut in custom packages and frozen. We sell the meat mostly by the pound, but also sell quarters, halves and whole carcasses. Customers can pick up their meat at the ranch or get free delivery to Trinidad and Raton. We ship interstate for an additional fee. In July/August we sell at the Farmers' Market in Trinidad, CO.

We always hand out cooking tips and recipes to our customers.
For any questions you’re welcome to call (575) 278-2316.

Beartown Farms supplies healthy grass fed lamb and beef.

We are situated in the ‘lake effect’ zone east of Lake Ontario - an outstanding location for a grass farm. Forty inches of rain, cool summers, and water holding soils enable us to grow excellent forages without chemical fertilizers or herbicides. With more than 650 acres of meadows and pastures, the sun provides all the energy required to sustain our farm operations.

In order to efficiently manage the land for our animals, we practice rotational grazing and harvest all of our winter feed as hay and grass silage. The farm is home to more than 500 Dorp-Croix hair sheep and 125 Angus cattle. Our lamb is for people who don’t normally like lamb, as there is no wool lanolin taste to the meat, and Angus beef is among the best.

Sustainable agriculture and healthy grass-fed lamb and beef – it doesn’t get better than that. Try some for yourself. Our farm grown lamb and beef are USDA inspected, custom cut and vacuum packaged. Cows are sold by the whole, half and split quarters and lamb by the whole.

You can contact us to order or arrange a delivery directly to specific locations within the northern New York region. Pick-up at the farm is always welcome. Shipping is also available nationwide.

Fox Hill Farm is 315 scenic, rolling acres in Ancramdale, New York just 2 hours north of NY City, in the foothills of the Berkshires of MA, CT and near the Taconic Parkway. We raise grassfed & grassfinished beef in an environmentally sustainable manner with rotational grazing of heritage breeds of British White, Murray Grey, Red Devon and crosses. They are very tame and raised organically but not yet certified.

The farm is protected from development by a conservation easement and has been in the Lampman family since 1882. The heritage breeds were chosen because of their ability to do well on grass and produce a healthy and tender, tasty product high in Omega 3 essential fatty acids.

¼’s, ½’s or whole beef custom cuts are prepared to customer specifications. We also sell and ship individual packages of steaks, roasts, burger and now terrific hot dogs (PaPa Dogs) that are all-beef, no-nitrate, with a natural casing.

All processing is done at small, local USDA inspected facilities. However, if an animal is purchased on the hoof in advance, then the most humane, ‘end’ can be arranged for at the farm. Shipping is available.

Visitors are welcome.

Flying Pigs Farm offers pork chops, tenderloin, roasts, bacon, ham and Sun-Dried Tomato and Chardonnay Sausage. Our pork is much more moist and flavorful than supermarket meat. It's different because we raise heritage breeds of pigs the old-fashioned way.

The pigs are raised outdoors in the fresh air and sunshine, with plenty of room to roam on our fields and in our woods. Because they have so much space and because we move them often, the land stays clean and the pigs stay healthy. The pigs snack on grass, weeds, and roots that grow on our land, and they also eat dried, ground grains.

Our pigs are "Large Blacks," Glouestershire Old Spots," and "Tamworths," old-fashioned breeds in danger of extinction. It may seem odd to use these breeds for pork because they are so rare, but they will not survive unless a market for these animals can be created. Breeders can then afford to expand their herds and expand the population.

We ship across the country. Look for us in the spring and fall at the Grand Army Plaza and Tribeca Greenmarkets in New York City. Visitors are welcome to pitch in at our fledgling farm on the Battenkill—but please call first!

Baldwin Charolais Beef is produced by Baldwin Family Farms, a family-operated farm in the rolling hills of pristine Caswell County, North Carolina.

More than 35 years ago we selected the Charolais breed, which is legendary for efficiently producing high-quality, protein-rich, lean meat by natural grazing. Our Charolais herd thrives on our nutrient rich pastures, enriched by organic compost produced on our farm. No chemical fertilizers or pesticides have been applied to our pastures for more than 20 years.

Baldwin Charolais grass-fed, all-natural beef provides superior taste with significant health benefits. It is naturally lower in fat than most USA-produced beef, and is robust with natural flavor. It is dry-aged and minimally processed to enhance flavor.

Baldwin Charolais beef can be purchased from our farm outlet, our website, or at a farmers' market. We sell direct in pre-packed assorted cuts and quantities. Our "Mini-Sampler,""Maxi-Sampler" and "40-Jumbo Burger" boxes are very popular for smaller families and cook-outs.

Canal Junction Natural Meats & Farmstead Cheese is a grass based farming operation where we believe in raising our animals for food the way that God intended them to be raised. We have a dairy herd along with beef, pork, lamb, broilers, turkeys and layers. We direct market all of the products that we produce on the farm. We recently started to make Raw Milk cheese from our own milk.

The dairy, beef, and lambs are 100% grassfed. They do not receive any grain. The pork, broilers, turkeys and layers all are raised on pasture and are given supplemental feed. The broilers and turkeys are moved every 24 hours to another section of pasture. The layers are free ranged within the paddocks that we have the cattle in.

We have very heavy clay soil that at one time was a swamp (The Great Black Swamp). It has been drained off since the second half of the 19th century. What was left behind was a soil that is extremely high in naturally occurring minerals. Through proper utilization of grass farming we capitalize on the available nutrients for grazing animals, which in return makes the final product more nutrient dense. It has been said that food grown on heavy clay soil is some of the best tasting in the world. Find out for yourself today. Order some cheese or stop by the farm and buy some meat to try for yourself.

We sell the raw milk cheese and meat off the farm. The meat is in nice sized small packages and the cheese is in approximately 3/4 lb packages. Bigger blocks of cheese are available, just ask. The cheese we will ship, the meat must be bought through the farm store. We do have a wholesale price for the cheese for any retailers or restaurant owners. Cheeses available: Cheddar, Colby, Jack, Garlic & Herb, Jack & Dill, Pepper Jack, Italian Herb, Black Swamp Gouda, Miami Erie Canal Swiss, Wabash Erie Canal Gruyere, and Canal Junction Blue (will be ready in late March of '08).

Meat is also offered in bulk. Beef is available by the whole, half, quarter, or half of a half. Pork and lamb are offered by the whole or half. Unless other arrangements are made, it is the customer's responsibility to pick up bulk orders from the butcher shop once the order is finished.

THE Clark Family Farm is situated adjacent to Silver Lake and borders 20 acres of protected wetlands just outside of New Carlisle, Ohio. Our Scottish Highland herd is raised entirely on grass during the spring, summer and fall, and on premium dried grasses during the winter months. We do not feed or administer any antibiotics or hormones to our beef or poultry and we do not use chemicals on our property. We follow an all-natural sustainable environment for our animals.

The Scottish Highland Breed originated in the cold and damp mountains of Scotland and is protected by a thick coat of long, dense hair which helps to insulate the cow and produces a very lean meat with little back fat. Being grass-fed beef, there is an optimum balance of omega-6 to omega-3 fatty acids, a ratio slightly above two. This means that two parts omega-6 to one part omega-3, which is very close to the ideal ratio between these two fats. Studies conducted by the USDA and Clemson University in 2009 contrasted beef from Animal Feeding Operations (AFOs) with Grass-Fed Beef. Researchers determined that grass-fed beef was:

  • Lower in total fat
  • Higher in beta-carotene
  • Higher in Vitamin E (alpha-tocopherol)
  • Higher in the B-vitamins thiamine and riboflavin
  • Higher in the minerals’ calcium magnesium, and potassium
  • A combined healthier ratio of omega-6 to omega-3 fatty acids (1.65 vs. 4.84)
  • Higher in CLA (cis-9 trans-11), a potential cancer fighter
  • Higher in vaccenic acid (which can be transformed into CLA)
  • Higher in total omega-3s
  • Lower in the saturated fats linked with heart disease

Since the old saying, “you are what you eat” is proving to be true, the beneficial effects of eating grass-fed beef and dairy products with the proper balance of fatty acids translate into outstanding health benefits to the consumer.

In addition to our Scottish Highland Beef we also raise free-range chickens and eggs, duck eggs, pheasant meat and eggs, and dark Cornish roasters and fryers. We will be adding quail meat and eggs to our farm this spring. None of our poultry or fowl are fed soy products. They are sustained on natural grasses and organic corn feed.

We provide beef in 1/4 or 1/2 sides and also in premium priced packages. Order directly through our farm or visit us at the Dorothy Lane Market Farmers Markets during the summer. We can ship UPS if you are out of the area.

Full of Life Farm: Grass-fed, pastured, and corn/soy/GMO-free beef and pork, AWA logodelivers to Southern California, the SF Bay Area, and to Portland, OR.

The Willamette Valley soil, renown for its Pinot Noir vineyards, makes great beef too. You can taste it in our Angus and Hereford beef, the terroir's flavor underlies the animals’ health, and your health too. The meat's marbling attests to the nutritious grasses. We neither import water nor grass, and all grass and hay is grown on our small sustainable family farms according to our production protocol. Ruminating as they roam freely, until they reach harvest weight — no chemicals, hormones, pesticides, antibiotics are needed.

Hogs, mostly Berkshire, also are free to roam, root, forage, and wallow all of their lives on small, family-owned, sustainable farms where pigs can be pigs (i.e. small social groups, free to roam, fed a non-GMO, soy and corn-free feed of peas, organic wheat, and rice bran as a supplement to their pasture forage). Outside on pasture during most of the year, but with shelter available in winter months with deep, clean straw.

Our animals are processed in a small family-owned abattoir nearby. Every animal, and the butchering process, is assessed and monitored by a permanent USDA inspector. The abattoir is certified by Animal Welfare Approved. Beef is hung to cold-dry age 3 weeks. Pork bacon and sausages contain no artificial preservatives.

We believe animals should be treated humanely and ethically. They should have access to fresh air, clean water, green grass, and sunshine. We know that a healthy environment and gentle handling grow healthy animals – animals without disease and stress.

We bring you Oregon's best meat direct from farms, delivered to your table.

Lostine Cattle Company employs the same sustainable, estate wine-growing philosophies as Leonetti Cellar and FIGGINS, the other Figgins Family Wine Estate brands, and applies them to the growing and harvesting of Scottish Highland Beef Cattle.

Raised in the pristine Wallowa Valley in Eastern Oregon, the cows are allowed to graze freely for their entire life on a superb grass mixture in an Oregon Tilth certified organic, biologically-farmed pasture. The cattle are never fed hormones or antibiotics, and as a final treat, they sometimes enjoy Pommace (pressed out grape skins) from our estate wineries.

We humanely harvest at a natural maturity age of 28-36 months, which intensifies flavor and quality of the beef. The beef is then dry aged for up to 28 days prior to being processed by our artisanal butcher. The meat is then cryovac packaged and immediately frozen.

Lostine Cattle Company strives to produce the most sustainable, finest quality beef available anywhere. We offer a combination of premium cuts such as steaks, along with roasts and other popular & classic cuts as a part of our quarter, half and whole beef program.

For more information about purchasing Lostine Cattle Company beef, please visit our website. To purchase a quarter, half or whole beef please call us directly at 1-877-581-9618. We offer delivery to Seattle, Portland, Tri Cities, and Spokane as well as split shipping options if freezer space is a concern.

North Valley Farm is a specialty producer of pasture raised lamb in Yamhill County, the heart of Oregon wine country.

The breeds we raise, Romneys and Lincolns, are known for their ability to produce tender, mild flavored lamb on a diet of native grasses. We market only lambs born and bred on our farm which means we know what they and their mothers have eaten for their entire lives.

By using intensive rotational grazing on our lush green pastures, we allow the grass to rest in between grazings and reduce the need for frequent worming. We produce our own grass hay and purchase alfalfa from a farmer down the road, as part of our own effort to buy locally.

When you purchase North Valley Farm lamb, you are guaranteed a great tasting product, slaughtered and cut to order at a local USDA facility. At this time, we offer lamb by the whole or the half and customers can provide us with specific cutting instructions.

We deliver to the Portland metro area and can ship anywhere in the US via UPS and Fed Ex. Farm pick up and visits are always welcome.

Silvies Valley Ranch believes livestock ranching can be paired with abundant, healthy wildlife to set the standard for the nation in best ranching and environmental practices.

Three families with pioneer roots own and manage the farm. The ranch is over 130,000 acres of deeded and leased national forest and BLM lands in and surrounding Silvies Valley, nestled in the Blue Mountains of eastern Oregon. The size of the property allows for a minimum of 100 acres per head of cattle. Our ranch is Food Alliance certified.

Our line of heritage cattle is a mix of Red Angus and Hereford bred to go to market at a weight of less than 900 pounds. This yields tastier smaller cuts and is easier on the riparian meadows where they are bred and raised. We never use antibiotics or hormones and our cattle are 100% free from corn, grain and alfalfa. Our choice to take our cattle at the yearling age of 12-16 months produces smaller, tender cuts that distinguish our beef.

Their diet consists solely of native meadow and Silvies Valley hay. This includes 12 varieties of naturally irrigated grasses, seven species of clover and over 100 varieties of wild flowers. This produces tender lean meat with a higher proportion of good fats and proteins.

Our beef is solely processed and distributed by Nicky USA, Inc. in Portland, Oregon. April through December our beef is available fresh, the remainder of the year we provide frozen options. We offer all cuts vacuum packed or up to full quarters cut to your specifications. Our beef is available for pick up or direct shipping.

Pastured Raised. What Does Pasture Raised Offer? The Pasture Raised portal allows private members daily access to some of the highest quality, un-pasteurized dairy from grass-fed cows, goats, sheep and camel. Members also gain access to completely fresh, unfrozen pasture-raised meats of all kinds, and a whole gamut of other nutrient dense foods, condiments and super-foods in accordance with the research of Weston A. Price.

We are Private Club Members alongside a number of small, dedicated Traditional Farmers who utilize completely natural growing methods. These processes include supreme attention to the overall quality of soil-spectrum health. The farmers promote techniques of flawless cultivation that consistently evolve beyond the popular organic standards.

Each of the farms has been carefully selected for their exceptional methods of traditional rearing and nurturing. A number of farmers maintain unique herds of Jersey cattle which graze year-round entirely on grass and wild vegetation. Alongside these cattle, a plethora of other animals are raised in completely traditional manners. The lands contain no herbicides, pesticides, fungicides, or any other synthetic derivatives of any sort. None of the animals are ever vaccinated, and they never receive antibiotics, growth-hormones or stimulants of any kind. They are never fed grains, soy or any other unnatural feed. Hay is rarely supplemented as many of the herds graze pasture year-round.

How Does The Process Work? E-mail info@pastureraised.net to be contacted about membership and have the opportunity to talk to a coordinator. After being approved and turning in your signed agreement form, you will be given password access to our website.

Ordering and Shipping: Fresh & Real ships twice a week. Orders placed by Saturday are shipped by Tuesday; orders placed by Tuesday are shipped by Thursday. We ship throughout the USA and to Canada from Lancaster County, Pennsylvania by UPS or Fed Ex. All packages contain ice packs to preserve freshness. Make sure to specify if you absolutely will not accept frozen food. We will choose fresh default, but if fresh is out of stock we revert to frozen. Thank You.

The chickens are never given any antibiotics, hormones or animal byproducts. The chickens are grown on fresh green pastures, moved everyday in floor-less cages, free to eat all the bugs they can find along with any grass and seed pods—of which they eat a great amount! Aside from what they find on pasture, they are fed a natural diet consisting of corn, soybeans, oats, fish meal, kelp meal, Fertrell's Nutri-balancer (a probiotic/natural mineral supplement), brewers yeast and oyster shell. Our chickens average 3lbs in weight, but are available from 1.5lbs to 5lbs on occasion. We also offer cut up chicken so you can get boneless/skinless breast, thighs, drumsticks and wings as well as hearts and liver.

We are happy to announce that we now offer free range eggs from our newly matured laying flock. Our hens are raised with the same standards as our broilers except they are afforded much more ranging area to ensure the best possible yolk quality.

We ship our products only in SC and deliver on Saturdays to Charleston and the surrounding areas.

South Dakota

Braaton Grass-Fed Beef is shipped right to your door!

Enjoy the health benefits, taste the difference.

We have a family owned farm nestled in beautiful South Dakota. It sits on what once was an old river bed now covered with lush grass loaded with natural minerals and other nutrients, and high in protein. 100% grass-fed from conception to consumption (no grain), hormone-, vaccine- and antibiotic-free, raised on pesticide-free grass.

These healthy cows do not stay in one area. They constantly move around so they can graze in new pastures. The cows receive fresh well water from natural springs and are humanely treated. They even receive plenty of protection during inclement weather.

It is the most tender, delicious beef!

All my life I have been treating my cows and my land this way. I love the farmer's life, my children, and my wife.

Beef is USDA-inspected, frozen, and vacuum packed. Choose between a 15-pound or 30-pound variety pack. Shipped USPS Overnight.

Cliff's Homegrown Beef sells pampered grass finished beef by the 1/2, 1/4, and Bundle. We truck locally, or ship UPS from the South Dakota/Minnesota border area.

Our beef start life on the native prairies and once weaned move to high quality, high energy, grass alfalfa mix or similar quality winter forage. Our beef is free of hormone implants, and antibiotics. The SOILS here in South Dakota are geologically young, being from the most recent Wisconsin glacial advance. They are still rich in trace minerals that today have been leached out of older more weathered soils. The cattle get supplemental salt and minerals, but much is provided to the plants by the soil and of course from the plants to the animals.

The cattle here are from moderate framed older style genetics. Small groups that survived the shift to mass-produced feed lot beef during the past 30 years. The thing I like best about this system is what it means to the animal. A feedlot is dust and flies, or mud and muck, shoulder to shoulder at the feed bunk. Nature is not always kind, but it is life closer to what was meant to be.

Dakota Harvest Farm is located in very extreme South Dakota, a few miles away from both Iowa and Nebraska. Dakota Harvest Farm raises Dorper lambs in a natural environment. Dorpers are a “hair” sheep rather than wool breed and are specially developed for the quality of their meat.

All of our lambs are born and raised naturally with their mothers on our pastures so we can guarantee that they’re healthy.

Maveric Heritage Ranch Co. is dedicated to raising endangered breeds of livestock, in the manner that nature intended. Animals at Maveric are raised with respect, compassion and healthy doses of attention. Most are known by name and personality.

All animals are raised on no-spray, rotational grazing pastures, lush with a variety of grasses, clovers and native plants. Our form of grazing—one species after another—enables us to fully utilize the forage available, as well as control parasites, weeds and erosion. This enhances the quality of the meat while renewing the natural environment. Winter feeding consists of hay from our own property. We do not feed any hormones, growth stimulants, antibiotics, animal by-products or unnatural ingredients. Beef is strictly grass/alfalfa fed. Hogs, goats & sheep eat a diet of pasture and supplemental vegetables, grains, & beet pulp. Mineral supplements for all breeds include Sea kelp, diatomaceous earth, molasses and trace minerals.

Heritage Breeds available at Maveric:
Belted Galloway Cattle, Mulefoot Hogs, Guinea Hogs, Hereford Hogs, Jacob Sheep & LaMancha Dairy goats.

Products from Maveric Heritage Breeds:
Grassfed Beef. Pastured Pork, lamb & goat sold by whole, half, mixed quarters (beef only) or by specific cuts.

Rosebud Beef Ranch, a small family-owned ranch in south central South Dakota, can provide you with tender, healthily grass-fed beef in split half's, half's, and wholes. Our local locker, which meets state and federal regulations, can process and ship your meat to most places in the US. We are considering providing individual cuts of meat should sufficient interest develop.

Our management program starts by selecting cattle that are genetically capable of producing tender, tasty beef on grass. We use Lowline bulls (http://www.usa-lowline.com) on selected Angus/cross cows as the basis of our program. Lowline cattle, developed in Australia and served in some of their finest restaurants, are genetically tender due to their smaller size and shorter muscle fibers. Our Lowline/cross cattle are 20–30% smaller than our Angus cows, which means smaller meat cuts and a lower initial cost for you when purchasing a half or whole beef.

All of our grass-fed animals are raised strictly on our native and tame grass pastures and because of our SD winters, they are supplemented with our green alfalfa hay. Our understanding is that green grass and/or green hay are essential to producing the highest amounts of omega 3 and conjugated linoleic acid (CLA) in the grass-fed meat.

Our land is devoted to producing feed for our beef cattle. We became convinced of the health benefits of grass-fed beef in 2001, which is when we started our grass-fed program. Because of our tenderness and other criteria, the number of grass-fed animals we offer for sale are few but will increase over time.

Wild Idea Buffalo Company was started by owner, rancher, author Dan O'Brien. Wild Idea Buffalo Co. was conceived by Dan's environmental concerns and prairie restoration passions. By using the native specie "Buffalo" as a tool in those endeavors, not only are the eco-systems improving, but we are also able to produce the healthiest red meat available today. The buffalo are raised on two ranches, which are located on the prairie in the shadow of the Black Hills of South Dakota.

Our animals roam in large pastures and are 100% grass fed. They are never subjected to antibiotics, growth hormones, steroids or confinement. In addition to that, we harvest the animals humanely in the field under state inspection.

Wild Idea Buffalo Meat is lower in calories, cholesterol and fat then any other red meat or chicken available. Although we are a small company, we do supply like minded health food markets and restaurants that support sustainable agriculture such as Staple & Spice Health Food Store in South Dakota, Harraseeket Inn, Freeport ME; Heatland Cafe, Chicago IL; Vincent's, Phoenix AZ; and The Gilbert House, Gilbert AZ.

Wild Idea Buffalo meat offers a variety of cuts. Our product is frozen and shipped directly all over the country, via UPS or Fed-Ex. It is available by calling us directly or through our website. Please visit our website for more information. We look forward to hearing from you.

The Lazy A Ranch, certified by the American Grassfed Association and Animal Welfare Approved, is a member of the British White Cattle Association of America, the American Wagyu Association, and the Texas Wagyu Association. Our ranch is certified, which means that our world class standards have been verified by an independent auditor.

One of our herds is the historic British White breed, once reserved for the English royalty and aristocracy, and enclosed in parks. This herd is headed by B&B Ulysses, an American Fullblood bull. We are currently producing beef from this herd, and The Lazy A Ranch website includes a history of this breed.

Another herd is of the world renowned Japanese Red Wagyu breed, headed by JC Red Star 50, a 99.4% purebred bull. American Kobe Beef will be sold beginning in 2016 from this herd.

The ranch follows organic pasture care with compost teas and liquid organic fertilizer from Sustainable Growth Texas, and follows Holistic Management International principles, including rotational grazing. We do not use pesticides, herbicides, routine antibiotics or growth hormones.

Our animals are tame, moved gently, and live on grassy pasture their entire lives. Most were born on the ranch. In addition to pasture grass our cows eat baled hay, alfalfa, cottonseed meal, and molasses. They are given a free-choice supplement with vitamins, minerals, kelp, and diatomaceous earth. They also get a sea salt block with minerals. We do not use pesticides, herbicides, routine antibiotics, or growth hormones.

The finishing process is begun at the ranch for 60–90 days with unlimited supplementary rations on pasture. Typically, our beef will be 28–30 months old and about 1200 pounds for a heavier, more marbled and flavorful beef according to the protocol of Artisan French labeled beef. They will be individually selected as they reach full growth and desired heaviness and processed by LaGrange Smokehouse, which is also Animal Welfare Approved. Beef will be dry aged for 21 days and shrink wrapped for your freezer.

The Lazy A Ranch is located about one hour from Houston between Bellville and Hempstead in Austin county. We also have a location in Cat Spring. Beef may be picked up at the ranch, in the Texas Medical Center Houston, or may be shipped frozen overnight in Texas. Our price for fall of 2013 is $4 per pound, hanging weight.

Star Haven Farms is owned and operated by Ray and Karen Hadaway, and has been in our family since the 1930s. We are located 35 miles east of Bryan College Station, TX (home of Texas A & M University) near Iola.

We raise grassfed beef, Boer meat goats, and eggs from pastured chickens. At Star Haven Farms our cattle are rotationally grazed on 40 acres of pastureland, and are raised on mother's milk, grasses, alfalfa and clover. They do not receive grain, hormones, antibiotics, or other chemicals. Our hens roam the pastures dining on all the green grass, bugs, frogs and lizards they can eat, but we do supplement with natural hen scratch.

Our beef is processed at Readfield's Meat Market in Bryan, a locally owned and operated Texas State inspected meat cutter. We sell our beef by the side, split quarter (evenly divided cuts from both the fore and hind quarters), and in small and large variety packs for those with limited freezer space. Shipping is available within Texas. We are also making monthly deliveries to Katy and Brenham.

We also offer a limited number of Boer show wethers for FFA and 4H projects and quality Fullblood and Percentage Boer breeding stock throughout the year.

Texas Criollo Beef. Warren Ranch produces 100% grass-fed, pasture raised Criollo beef under our brand “Texas Criollo Beef.”

Criollo beef is exceptionally lean, tender and flavorful with all of the health benefits people have come to expect from grass-fed beef. Criollo beef has been proven in DNA testing to rival Kobe beef (from Wagyu cattle) for tenderness and Angus beef for quality, yet is family affordable. Criollo beef is 50% leaner than “feed lot” beef and our customers tell us there is no comparison on taste.

Criollo are superbly adapted for the environments of the North American southwest. Renowned for their hardiness, fertility, gentle nature and longevity, the animals themselves can reduce the beef industry’s environmental impact. Our cattle spend their entire lives roaming spacious pastures in Central Texas. We use no hormones or antibiotics.

Our beef may be ordered online at our website. We provide free delivery in the Dallas/Fort Worth area and sell at the Dallas Farmers Market on Fridays & Saturdays. Or your order can be shipped for a nominal fee or you can pick up at our ranch in Whitney, Texas.

Dirty Spur Cattle Company raises pure bred Texas Longhorns. All of our animals are born and raised right here in Highland, Utah and never leave one of our pastures. They are grass fed from the day they are born to the day they are slaughtered, and are never given any hormones or antibiotics.

We process our meat at the only USDA certified slaughter house in Utah County and we deliver our meat right to your home. You can trust that these cows are all-natural, hormone-free and never given anything but grass to eat all the days of their lives.

Our meat is extremely lean and has been tested at 92–98% lean. Thanks to Texas Longhorn beef, today's health-conscious consumer doesn't have to avoid tender juicy steaks. Not only is Longhorn beef leaner than that of other breeds, it is also lower in saturated fats. The flavorful Longhorn beef has less cholesterol and calories than chicken. Definitely good news for a healthy lifestyle!

"Lean beef is good for you – and the key word is lean. Longhorn meat on the average, contains 10 percent less saturated fat than that of other cattle. That puts lean Longhorn beef on par with skinned boneless white meat of chicken and that fact may come as a surprise to many dieticians." —Dr. Joseph Graham, Cardiovascular Surgeon at St. John's Medical Center in Joplin, Missouri.

We sell our beef in quarters, halves and full cows. You can also purchase ground beef from us in any quantity at any time of year.

At Dayspring Farm we raise Grass-fed Katahdin lambs because this American lamb breed which is a hair sheep naturally produces mild tasting lamb meat. We have found this sheep breed, if properly managed, has the ability to grow and finish efficiently from grass and stored grass feeds. Our cattle are raised naturally on pasture grasses, legumes and forbs grown on the hills of our farm in Southeastern Vermont.

Water for our animals is provided from a dedicated underground spring or from our driven well which is the same water source we use at our home for drinking. Both of these water sources are rich in minerals from deep in the earth. The grass we grow is from re-mineralized soils which we see as the source of health for our stock, plants, and ultimately for ourselves and others who enjoy our special meats. In addition we supplement our stock with organic kelp meal (seaweed) which is a complete source of trace minerals as well as with mineral salt.

Our sheep and lambs are provided with a healthy and peaceful environment with plenty of fresh air, sunshine and exercise. We take pride in how we husband our stock and endeavor to be good stewards of the land and animals, treating both with respect and care.

Breeding stock is sold when available and meat regularly by appointment at the farm. We also sell and ship frozen meat to customers in New England and eastern New York. Orders can be placed on our online store by visiting our web site.

At Mountain Home Farm in the heart of the Green Mountains of Vermont, we produce a cultured, single source, artisan butter of exceptional quality. The cream is lightly pasteurized, cultured and churned in small batches in our on-farm Grade A processing facility.

We treat our Guernsey cows like family. In the summer they graze in lush mountain pastures. In the winter they eat hay harvested from our meadows. The result is a golden butter high in Vitamin A, Omega-3's, CLA's with rich, complex flavors. Our cows thrive with NO GRAIN. We farm organically, but are not certified. We can ship our butter (salted or unsalted) anywhere in the US. The minimum order is one 6-pound case for $90 plus shipping. The butter can be easily frozen for many months.

Local customers may purchase cases of butter, ricotta and buttermilk directly from the farm for wholesale price. We also offer hand-made ricotta cheese, true buttermilk from the churn and on-farm slaughtered beef and pastured, milk-fed pork.

We sell our 100% grass fed dairy products at stores around Vermont such as City Market in Burlington, Healthy Living Market in South Burlington, Hunger Mountain Co-op in Montpelier and South Royalton Co-op in South Royalton.

Vermontbeef.com raises grassfed beef on our family farm located on the Quebec border in northern Vermont. Our mission is to provide our customers with beef of exceptional eating qualities, as well as superior nutritional content, by practicing biological farming techniques and management intensive grazing practices.

After being weaned from milk, our cattle are raised on a diet of high quality forages including hay and grass silage in the winter and lush pasture during the grazing season. Cattle are slaughtered in the late summer and fall to maximize the time on pasture prior to harvest. No sub-therapeutic antibiotics are fed and no supplemental hormones are used.

Beef is available beginning each fall for as long as supplies last. Our beef is sold by the pound as individual cuts. Orders may be placed at our on-line store and are shipped directly to you via UPS, USPS or other package delivery services. Shipping cost within New England is $14.95 per box.

Westhaven Farm raises Beefalo Beef, a cross between American bison and domestic beef cattle. The animals are naturally raised and finished on grass, naturally mined minerals, and kelp meal. They are given no synthetic hormones, growth implants, animal by-products, or antibiotics or other drugs except where the health of an individual animal is threatened. In winter, they maintain their health and vigor well on hay alone. Beefalo is nutritious and delicious, naturally low in fat and cholesterol, while being comparatively high in some essential nutrients and protein, facts which led the USDA to give Beefalo its own designation, "Beefalo Beef." Being naturally low in fat does not diminish its palatability.

We sell Beefalo by the quarter (approximately 90 pounds) or half for the freezer, as well as retail cuts to individuals, stores, and restaurants. We now ship by FedEx within the continental United States, using insulated containers and frozen gel packs to alleviate the Federal restrictions on the use of dry ice.

Westhaven is a small farm, producing a quality product with care, and not all cuts are available at all times. We hope you will try and enjoy Beefalo Beef, and we greatly appreciate your support.

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.

Blue Valley Meats…local, sustainable, inspired. We are three local families in Walla Walla, WA who raise a small number of animals each year ourselves and work with our close friends and neighbors who raise the rest. We know how important it is to know the source of your meats, and to want those who care for the animals to use the best sustainable practices at all times. That's what we do with a passion. We can confidently say all our meats are "From Ranchers Who Care... For People Who Care!"  

ALL calves are born on these ranches and receive NO antibiotics or added hormones in any of the animals. These are all 100% Grass Fed Beef and 100% Grass Fed Sheep. NO grains are ever fed to the cattle or sheep! The pigs and poultry receive non-GMO, natural feeds, again with no antibiotics or hormones added ever. The animals are humanely slaughtered, and we cut and wrap the meats ourselves at our own USDA butcher shop that is 100% Gluten-Free.
  
We carry a wide selection of local, year-round, 100% grass fed beef, natural pork (from Berkshire/Landrace cross hogs), free-ranged chicken, 100% grass fed lamb, sustainable seafood, and heritage turkeys with seasonal rabbit and duck, by special order. We also carry wonderful Pure Eire Dairy products—a 100% Grass Fed, Organic, Certified Non-GMO Dairy with Raw Milk or pasteurized, cream, skim, 2% and whole milk available. 

Meats are purchased "by the cut" (generally 2 steaks per package), or you may buy in bulk allowing for your special instructions on quarters, halves and wholes of beef, pork and lamb.

Our friendly and professional staff can help you customize your order too. Want your steaks 2 inches thick? Like to leave more fat on your brisket? No problem. Looking for house-made sausages with ingredients you can pronounce and NO MSG's or packaged unknown spices? You'll find them at Blue Valley Meats with attention to detail, like an old-fashioned 7-day brine for hickory smoked bacon, hams and sausages. All our meats are 100% Gluten-Free.

Lostine Cattle Company employs the same sustainable, estate wine-growing philosophies as Leonetti Cellar and FIGGINS, the other Figgins Family Wine Estate brands, and applies them to the growing and harvesting of Scottish Highland Beef Cattle.

Raised in the pristine Wallowa Valley in Eastern Oregon, the cows are allowed to graze freely for their entire life on a superb grass mixture in an Oregon Tilth certified organic, biologically-farmed pasture. The cattle are never fed hormones or antibiotics, and as a final treat, they sometimes enjoy Pommace (pressed out grape skins) from our estate wineries.

We humanely harvest at a natural maturity age of 28-36 months, which intensifies flavor and quality of the beef. The beef is then dry aged for up to 28 days prior to being processed by our artisanal butcher. The meat is then cryovac packaged and immediately frozen.

Lostine Cattle Company strives to produce the most sustainable, finest quality beef available anywhere. We offer a combination of premium cuts such as steaks, along with roasts and other popular & classic cuts as a part of our quarter, half and whole beef program.

For more information about purchasing Lostine Cattle Company beef, please visit our website. To purchase a quarter, half or whole beef please call us directly at 1-877-581-9618. We offer delivery to Seattle, Portland, Tri Cities, and Spokane as well as split shipping options if freezer space is a concern.

Swift Level's rolling 152 acres are located just outside of Lewisburg in Greenbrier County. Family farming in southern WV since 1843, we have a love of land and animals.

Our Angus steers are born "across the fence" on our neighbor's farm where we watch them grow and play with their herd on free pasture grazing and hay. They come "through the gate" to us at 10–12 months of age where we finish them on the same familiar grasses until they have naturally matured to their individual finished weight, between 20–27 months. The steers move about freely on well managed pastures, have abundant flowing clean spring water, and are supplemented only with organic kelp and necessary supported minerals for balanced health. Thoughtful and wise animal husbandry practices insure our animals have the best life we can offer them. We are in compliance with a USDA/NRCS organic land certification program. All streams,springs and woodlands are protected.

We use a small, family run USDA, Animal Welfare Approved abattoir. It is vitally important to us that slaughter is done thoughtfully and carefully. Our beef dry-hangs for a minimum of 30 days. All packaging is vacuum sealed. Tag numbers are imprinted to trace each package of beef from birth to consumer. This delicious beef sells by the cut, no order too small or too large! We process year round and ship direct all over the country.

To order: Please visit our website for cut and price listing, updated weekly

Wisconsin

BisonRidge Ranch bison are strictly grass fed! We focus on natural pastures. Our animals are allowed to graze in roomy pastures on chemical-free grass. We rely on birds and beneficial insects for pest control. We do not give our animals antibiotics or growth hormones assuring you clean, healthful meat.

Grass-Fed bison meat tastes great! Most people interviewed feel bison is the most flavorful meat they have ever tasted, with a sweet and rich flavor. Bison is naturally flavorful and tender and can be prepared much the same as beef without special handling.

All our animals are raised ethically and are allowed to be the wild creatures they are. We humanely harvest our buffalo by the field method. If you would like details on our methods, do not hesitate to call.

Our meat is processed and packaged at Johnson's Sausage in Rio, Wisconsin, who adheres to the stringent health regulations of the State of Wisconsin. All buffalo meat is "flash-frozen" at 20 below zero and since we slaughter virtually every week the meat is very fresh.

We ship our meat year round. Tours are available May 15-Oct 15.

Blackberry Ridge, LLC Eco-Farm & Ranch is owned and operated by one small family. We started five years ago to create a Bio-diverse, Biodynamic, Organic, Sustainable, and Permiculture Eco-system—a self-contained farm where the animals fertilize the land and the resulting living soil and grasslands feed the animals.

We have introduced eight different animal species to roam our land. Many are Heritage or endangered breeds. These include: 100% GrassFed Galloway Cattle and Sheep (fiber, meat, and milk); Free-Range, Pastured Hogs, Chickens, and Turkeys; Horses; and Great Pyrenees guard Dogs.

As members of the Cherokee Tribe, we work in Harmony with the wildlife in our woods to increase wild habitat and bio-diversity. We have encouraged the re-growth of native vegetation, and will add more diverse plants each year, creating a permiculture. The animals have opportunity to eat the foods they would eat in the wild, while finding the most pure, Certified Organic sources for any feed we must give. We feed NO Grain to our Beef and Lamb!

NO ANTIBIOTICS, ANTIPARISITES, ADDED HORMONES, PESTICIDES, HERBICIDES, or ARTIFICIAL FERTILIZERS

Optimum health is achieved by humane treatment (we don’t ‘cut’ our animals), fresh grass, herbs, sunshine and air, and a reliance on nature before we intervene. We believe this creates optimum nourishment in the foods that we nourish ourselves with and optimum life in the environment we live in.

Galloway beef rated #1 in taste and #2 in tenderness by UW tests. It is USDA processed and dry aged for 18 days by a small family butcher, then cut and froze individually. Purchase our meats at our farm, at Natural Food Stores in LaCrosse, WI and in the Minneapolis area. Shipping is available.

Pinnacle Pastures Farm has been in the family for 60+ years. Cody oversees daily management of the farm which is in organic transition. Animals never receive hormones or sub-therapeutic levels of antibiotics.

Cody has planted clover / grass pastures as well as pastures especially for hogs—allowing them to graze fresh greens and root out turnips as nature intended. Hogs are bred and fed for exceptional meat flavor and high nutrient density. Piglets are raised on pasture during the summer and in deep straw bedded huts in our barn during winter. Very little lard comes with our finished hogs as they get lots of exercise!

Pinnacle Pastures also offers grass fed Angus cross beef and Katahdin lamb. These lambs are milder in flavor than standard sheep breeds. Heritage breeds of turkey, geese, ducks, guineas, and chickens reside with the beef and hogs who offer protection from predators. Great Pyrenees guardian dogs offer further protections.

It is a privilege to care for livestock and nurture their instinctive behaviors. Calves, kids, lambs, piglets, chicks, ducklings, and goslings are raised by their mothers. Beef and hogs available by whole, half, bundles, and smaller quantities. Nitrate-free bacon is available. Visitors are always welcome.

Shepherd Song Farm. We raise 100% grass-fed lamb and goat meat. We believe pasture-raised is absolutely, without a doubt, better for the animals, better for the environment, better for your health...which is better for you! We make a commitment to you to NOT use pesticides on our land and to use NO animal by-products, antibiotics or hormones. Our lambs and goats grow naturally on Wisconsin meadows. The cool northern summers of the upper Midwest produce outstanding pastures producing premium, lean lamb and goat in a healthy environment.

Our livestock spend their days in the open air and sunshine grazing our lush, green pastures. Our young stock spend the majority of their time safe with their mothers within the protective flock learning to choose from diverse forage. We do not confine our animals to stalls, on concrete or in feedlots.They routinely carry out their natural behaviors such as grazing, browsing, lactating and exploring their environment as appropriate to their species. Quality of life for our animals is one of our main values.

We are a small family farm. We use sustainable and holistic farming practices that improve the soil, increase biodiversity, and are beneficial to our local community's environment. In practice this means what we take out of the environment we put back in, so land and resources such as water, soil and fertility can be replenished and are available to future generations.

Our products are USDA inspected, vacuum-packed for quality, and meet high standards for freshness, tenderness and flavor. Individual cuts or family value boxes can be purchased year round. Religious requirements can be met such as halal certification.

Wyoming

Fort Causeway is a draft horse powered family farm located just east of Lovell, Wyoming, nestled against the Big Horn Mountains. Homesteaded five years ago, we built the infrastructure and now farm on 80 flood-irrigated acres using gravity gated pipe.

We do our best to farm using some of the newest technology and equipment available in draft animal powered farming. Our family of six raises pastured pork, poultry, laying hens, dorper and katahdin lambs, and a few beef. We also utilize a few resident milk cows whose products serve our family, improve our pigs, and are supplied as pet food for others interested. Our pastures are rotated intensively, and contain many varieties of grasses and legumes. In addition, we supply all of our meat animals with 6-day-old green sprouted fodder year round for fantastic nutrition, taste, and consistency through all seasons. This fodder system also allows us to provide certified organic feed, and increases stocking rates without stressing our pastures.

The animals are well protected from predators by our Great Pyrenees livestock guardian dogs; puppies are available from time to time, started in training as family loving livestock guard dogs.

We follow organic and natural practices, though have not yet pursued Certified Organic status. No pesticides or herbicides have been used on the property for several years.

We grow a variety of produce in season, as well as raspberries, chokecherries, plums, and buffaloberries. We may look into CSA options in the future, for those interested.

We work, train, and sell a few outside teams of draft horses per year, in addition to regularly working our own draft horse rescues. Four foxtrotter saddle horses are available for local trail rides in the Big Horn or Pryor Mountains.

We offer grass finished animals live, or processed through local USDA inspected facilities, and are willing to ship. Our farm embraces day and overnight visitors, both through a travel hostel and a vacation rental, and 4 RV sites, by appointment. Come and see your food growing!

Hecht Creek Ranch produces high quality grassfed beef and pastured eggs. Hecht Creek Ranch is located in Centennial Valley outside of Laramie, Wyoming just 45 minutes north of Colorado. As a family business, our goal is to promote the natural resources of the land and provide a lifestyle that is fulfilling to all who live here.

As a consumer, you develop a personal relationship with the family that raises your meat. You contract to buy a specific, live animal and we process and deliver the meat as a service to you. We pledge to walk you through the production process, the customized butchering options and even invite you to come out and visit our ranch. We believe that great beef comes from cows grazing on high-country grass and living the way they were meant to live, without the stress of feedlots and mass-production values. We think you will agree.

Our products are available year round. You can purchase directly from the ranch via our website, or at the Big Hollow Food Co-Op in downtown Laramie, or enjoy us at the Alibi pub in Laramie.

We deliver in Laramie for free and also ship nationally.

We guarantee our beef to meet your needs and expectations and invite you to contact us with any questions.

Let us be your rancher!

Touchstone Angus offers grass finished beef raised entirely on our ranch near Lusk, Wyoming. We have worked many years to identify angus cattle that are inherently capable of consistently producing tender beef within a grass/forage only diet. This hard to find genetic tenderness combined with the special quality of the native grass diet available on the open ranges of Wyoming sets Touchstone grass finished beef apart in taste.

Our beef is not certified as organic due to the time and money necessary for the process. Nonetheless, the beef has no added hormones and no antibiotics are fed. The cattle are raised on native pastures that are not sprayed with herbicides or farmed.

Touchstone beef is sold in whole, halves and quarters (half of a half). The beef is processed at a USDA inspected plant in Elizabeth, CO where it can be picked up frozen or stored in a locker. We can ship beef as well if you live outside the Denver area and are unable to pick it up.

Touchstone Angus Beef, Brad James, 440 Petz Road / PO Box 165, Lusk WY 82225. (307) 340-1456.

Williams Grassfed LLC is located in north-central Wyoming in the foothills of the beautiful Big Horn Mountains. The land has been in the family since 1890, and we are the fifth generation to be entrusted with the responsibility of being stewards of the land. The sixth generation, Marilee Juliet, came into this world on April 12th, 2006, and our goal is to provide her the opportunity to become a responsible steward of the land as well.

We use Holistic Resource Management practices to manage the land and create a self-sustaining ranch that supports not only cattle, but an abundance of big game animals, small animals, waterfowl, fish, and songbirds. We use nature as a guide in all of our management decisions, which is why we calve in sync with nature and use no chemical fertilizers, pesticides or herbicides on the land. We keep our cattle happy with fresh pasture, pure water, clean air, and we treat the animals in a very humane and dignified manner. Our philosophy is Healthy Land -> Healthy Animals -> Healthy People.

We sell grass-fed beef in wholes, halves, quarters, and custom orders. All of our beef has been raised here on the ranch so we are certain that it contains no antibiotics, steroids, hormones, or animal by-products. We strongly believe in our product which is why we go to great lengths to provide a USDA-inspected product for our customers, which we can ship anywhere in the United States. We process once a year, in June, so get your orders in early to insure availability.

You can also find our products at the following grocery stores: Alpenglow, Casper WY; and The Health Nut, Sheridan WY.
