B & B Family Farm is a family owned farm in northwest GA. We raise Heritage Breed Pineywoods cattle, pastured Heritage Breed Large Black hogs and Heritage Breed Dominique chickens for truly free range eggs.
Our cattle are 100% grass-fed; no grain or animal by-products ever. We use no hormones, antibiotics or de-wormers.

The spring water has won awards for purity and taste. When natural forages are in short supply we feed only locally sourced hay.
Frequently moving our hogs provides them free access both pastures and woodlots where they enjoy forages, roots, nuts and persimmons. We supplement with locally grown grains using no hormones, antibiotics or de-wormers.
We provide beef in whole/half/split-quarter and pork in whole/half for bulk orders. We do have retail cuts available periodically at the farm store. Call Elizabeth or Russ for more information. Have a healthy day!

Dennis Farms is located in east central Alabama 7 miles from the Georgia state line. We grow lush, nutritious grass in our pastures using management intensive grazing principles to insure our animals are eating the grass at its best while improving our soils. We raise Red Angus cattle, Katahdin hair sheep and Tamworth heritage pigs to harvest our grass. At the appropriate stage of maturity, we harvest our animals to produce nutritious and delicious grass-fed beef, grass-fed lamb and pastured pork.
We raise our cows, sheep and pigs in a natural pastoral environment never giving growth-promoting antibiotics, hormones, or steroids. We believe that contented animals produce a superior product, so we strive for a low stress environment emphasizing the humane treatment of our livestock. We follow a strict grass-fed protocol with our cows and sheep, never feeding grain, animal byproducts or feed supplements.
Our pigs graze in the pasture along with the cows and sheep so that forage makes up a substantial part of their diet. In addition to the forage, the pigs get a daily serving of whey and a small measured grain ration put out by hand. With the emphasis on forage and whey, the pork we produce is tastier, leaner and healthier than pork from pigs raised on a heavy grain diet. We do not have farrowing huts or crates.
Please take some time and explore our web site to better know us and our farm. You can also follow us on Facebook. We are proud of the effort we make to provide our customers a quality product that tastes good and is good for them.
Dennis Farms' grass-fed beef is currently offered as our whole cow “Primeburger.” We take the meat from the entire cow (never cheating and pulling out the best cuts) and thoroughly mix it together before grinding to create a ground beef product with a taste and texture that’s like eating steak in a patty. "Primeburger" comes in approximately 1-pound packs.
Our Tamworth whole hog sausage also consists of the meat from the entire hog and is completely mixed prior to grinding. We also offer a variety of cuts and unseasoned ground pork. As supply permits, we have roasting pigs, sides and whole hogs available as well.
Our grass-fed lamb is available in the late fall of the year and is generally sold as a whole lamb. Our lamb has the lighter, more delicate taste that comes from hair sheep. All of our animals are humanely processed in a USDA inspected facility.

Farm 255 is a restaurant that seeks to reconnect
food to its roots and people to their food by serving local, seasonal,
and sustainable food for supper nightly. In addition to the restaurant,
we manage Full Moon Farms, an organic/biodynamic animal and vegetable
production farm in Athens.
Unlike the owners of any other restaurant
we know of, we are the folks sowing turnip seeds in the morning and cooking
turnip greens in the evening. We supplement our harvests with those of
other local family farmers and ranchers that avoid harmful chemicals
and practice sustainable agriculture.
Our menu, based on seasonal shifts
in the field, changes as often as the weather. Our meat comes from
pasture-raised animals and is
hormone and antibiotic free. We raise most of our own livestock, and
utilize whole animals and all the various cuts of meat throughout
our menu. We are as committed to good community as we are to our cuisine.
We have an open kitchen so that dinner is a dialogue, where the farmer-chefs
and diner-neighbors can have a meaningful exchange; we offer live music
every night in honor of its legacy in this town; and we designed our
restaurant with an eye toward the history of the 1930s building
that houses it.
For us here at the Farm, eating is a celebration
origins, the paths it travels on the way to our tables, and the lessons
learned through the journey.

Fresh Beef Company, located in North Central Florida
(about 130 miles south of the Georgia border), 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
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!

4Mile Farm offers delicious all-natural grassfed beef and lamb. We have 60 hilly acres located in Ball Ground, GA. Our love of cooking healthy and delicious food led us to start raising our own grassfed beef and lamb. We are not a large operation and only keep as many animals as our pastures can sustain. Since we do not feed grain, we have to ensure that we don't overgraze our pastures.
Our methods are simple. Water and grass. No hormones to grow bigger animals, no antibiotics to keep them healthy. Because our animals live as nature intended: they are healthy, happy and easy to care for.
Our cattle and sheep spend a vast majority of their time out on pasture. In the winter, if it's cold and rainy, we will bring the animals into the barn to stay warm and dry. Being in Georgia, that is usually only a few days out of the year.
We offer USDA inspected grassfed beef and lamb by the cut. We sell at local farmer's markets—please contact us for updates—as well as to 61 Main, a wonderful nearby farm-to-table restaurant. We are located about an hour north of Atlanta and delivery is available.
Our goal is to produce the highest quality meat for our friends and family while respecting the animals that nourish us. We have received great reviews from our customers. But probably our biggest critic is our 6-year-old daughter who will eat an entire cheeseburger in a blink of an eye and often comes back for seconds and thirds on pot roast.

Little River Natural Beef offers a variety
of natural pasture-raised products including beef, chicken, goat,
and pork. All our products are raised under specific guidelines:
- Animals will consume no grain*, grain by-product, alternative feed
(chewing gum), or by-products from other animals. Animals will be
maintained and finished on natural grasses and forages. Cereal grains
are permissible in the vegetative state. Stored forage should be
in the form of cured grass or legume hay. No G.M.O's—forage
- Animals will be free from antibiotics, growth hormones, pesticides,
- Animals will be of genetic type with the ability to finish on forage
at proper body condition and maturity. This will be established through
visual appraisal, genetic verifiers (tenderness gene), carcass testing,
or all inclusive.
- Animals should be humanely handled and processed with minimum amount
of stress and crowding. Cattle disposition should be scored and only
animals with suitable scores be eligible. High-strung animals lead
to handling difficulties and stress.
- Slaughtering and processing of these animals should also be accomplished
with minimum of stress. Slaughter facilities should only slaughter
forage-fed animals to avoid cross contamination of E-Coli from grain-fed
- Animals should not graze land treated with pesticides.
- Animals can be vaccinated with approved biologicals and dewormed
with products approved for grass-fed animals.
* Some natural grains are used in the finishing of
pork and poultry as they are not ruminants and cannot satisfy their
nutritional needs with grass and forage alone.

My Dad & Me Family Farm is located in Powder Springs, Georgia. We operate on a beautiful five-acre tract where we are seeking to be as sustainable as possible.
We are known for our wonderful, raw milk. We rationally graze our Jersey cows on pasture and supplement with hay and baleage. Our cows receive a very small amount of grain (4 pounds or less per day) and are treated with loving care. Happy, healthy, contented animals always produce the best quality products.
We raise some of the finest pastured broiler chicken and pastured rabbit fryers available! Cornish X Broiler chickens in moveable, bottomless pens similar to Joel Salatin’s method: fresh water, antibiotic-FREE grain, and daily access to new grass. We raise the birds for 59 days and average a 4 to 4.25 lb. dressed bird.The pastured rabbit fryers are raised similarly in moveable pens with fresh water, pellets, and daily new grass access. We also have grass-fed and pastured meats from Dennis Farms in Alabama.
Also available for sale are free-range, pastured eggs and fresh garden produce grown on our farm.

Wagon Wheel Ranch is a 200-acre family farm
operating 14 miles south of Athens for 40 years. We raise
antibiotic- and hormone-free, all natural, grass fed, grass finished, free range, Black Angus cross bred beef.
We love our cows and treat them
humanely with respect and kindness.
We cross purebred Santa Gertrudis cows (good mothers) with a purebred
Hereford bull (gentle disposition & high yield carcass); their daughters
(healthy, gentle, good mothers) are bred to a purebred Black Angus bull
(tender quality meat cuts). The resulting calves are the ones we sell
to you! This cross breeding system makes the cows and calves healthier
and disease resistant. Our Black Angus bull was DNA tested for tenderness,
ribeye size and 10 other genetic traits.
Our beef is sold to you live
on the hoof for $2.00-3.50/pound, depending on the current market. We deliver
the animal to a processor where it is processed and aged at your cost
to your specifications, then vacuum packed and flash frozen. This is
the least expensive way to purchase beef ! We now also sell individual retail cuts that are vacuum packed and frozen.
A whole carcass will fit in a
14 cubic foot chest freezer, and 1/2 carcass in a 7 cubic foot freezer.
A live weight beef yields about 50% hanging weight, which typically
consists of 31% steaks, 31% roasts, 36% ground beef and 2% miscellaneous
cuts. Live weights average 800-1000 pounds and 2-4 friends can group
together to divide a whole carcass in halves or quarters.
only calves born, raised and finished on our farm are
offered for sale. Customers must make an appointment in advance if they
desire to pick out their own calf at the farm. We use a sustainable pasture
rotation system with natural shade and fresh water available at all times. High quality
free choice hay or grass silage is fed during winter or drought
Wagon Wheel Ranch has been audited and inspected and is now certified by the American Grassfed Association as well as Animal Welfare Approved for humane production and harvesting of our beef cattle, including the processing plant we use.
