Be Fruitful Farm is a small family farm with a vision of closing the gap between the producer and consumer, thereby guaranteeing a quality and transparency that large corporations can’t provide.
We are growing premium grass fed beef, pastured poultry and organic produce for our family, and making it available to others who want quality food for their table.
Our beef is exclusively grass fed; we do not use antibiotics, hormones, or animal by products.
Our chickens are raised in portable shelters that are moved daily to fresh pasture. This ensures fresh forage and sanitary, disease-free living conditions. They are allowed to grow at a natural rate without hormones or artificial lighting. The pasture and bugs provide up to 15% of their diet, which is why these birds have such exceptional flavor. We make our own feed from local non-GMO grains so that we can guarantee its freshness and quality.

Carolina Grassfed Beef & Free-Range Eggs, a division of Double M Farm, Inc., produces delicious all-natural grassfed, grass-finished beef, free-range pastured brown eggs, pastured pork and pastured poultry.
We use no hormones, antibiotics, pesticides, herbicides, or de-wormers on our cattle, chickens and pigs.
Beef, pork and poultry are processed in a USDA inspected facility, vacuum-sealed, flash frozen, and sold in our farm store.
BEEF: We start with a superior line of heritage breed Trask Polled Hereford. We knew Mr. Trask personally and have had Trask cattle on the farm since 1950. We choose animals that show phenotypic traits for finishing exceptionally well on grass based on information gained through years of studying the teachings of Gearld Fry and the late Charles Walters.
We rotationally graze our cattle, and use only small amounts of fertilizers approved for organic farming. We mix our own minerals with sea salt as the base. We feed no grain, grain by-products, or animal by-products to our cattle. Beef is dry-aged for four weeks and sold by the cut, half, and whole carcass. We have a waiting list for half and whole beef.
CHICKEN & EGGS: Our chickens free-range 500 acres and do what chickens do: scratch the ground, eat bugs, grass, and the soy-free feed we mill ourselves. We do not use commercial layer feed or animal by-products. We sell whole chickens, livers, feet, and brown eggs by the dozen and the flat (2 1/2 dozen).
PORK: Our pastured pigs spend their days doing what pigs do: rooting, wallowing, and eating weeds, roots and the soy-free feed we mill for them. Our heritage breeds include full and crossbred Berkshire, Duroc, and Hereford for exceptionally delicious pork. We sell pork by the cut.
We are located in the beautiful foothills of Anderson, SC, 13 miles from the Georgia State Line. Our family has owned and operated Double M Farm, Inc. since 1847 and produced the finest Grassfed Beef since 2004.

Copperhead Homestead – It is my passion to raise and sell food the way my grandparents (and great-grandparents!) did. Raising trustworthy food without chemicals, medications, or factory farming techniques. Healthy, pastured beef cattle and hand-planted heirloom produce, never coated with pesticides or herbicides.
My dream is to bring back the golden days of farming: when farmers could feed their food to their own children, when neighbors could trust their local farmers to provide safe and responsible nutrition. I believe the only way to ensure the safety and sustainability of your food is to form a relationship with your local farmer; I want to be that farmer for you. If I am not, I would still like to help you find someone to fill your family’s needs.
My cows enjoy free range over more than 200 acres. To ensure their diet remains healthy and lush, they are moved seasonally around the farm, always having access to fresh grass. I don’t need to preach about the benefits of grass fed cattle; you know their guts aren’t designed for corn, sugar, or other dietary additives they are often given for rapid weight and fat gain. This has never, and will never, happen on Copperhead. Each and every cow I sell has been raised from birth on my farm. This ensures that the cow was never given antibiotics or hormones early in life, and that the cow was not fattened with corn. This also allows me to control the genetics of my cattle population. Our cows have never received medication of any kind, and are exclusively pastured on grass and well water.
We offer several packages and free delivery on large orders to almost all of Georgia and North Florida!

Welcome to DeLoach Cattle Co LLC. We are a first generation beef cattle operation located in Valdosta GA. Our operation is located in two counties and we entered into the cattle business as a hobby to bring our family outdoors.
We operate an angus-based cow-calf operation under Animal Welfare Approved (AWA) guidelines, which includes no added hormones, antibiotics or steroids.

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.

Ecoexist, LLC is a farm started with health and the environment in mind. Located in Winder, GA we are raising grass fed heritage pork. The hogs are a cross of an Idaho Pasture and Gloucestershire which creates a wonderfully delicious product. We offer free delivery within 50 miles.
Our main priority is that the food we create is a healthy product—just the way nature intended. By prioritizing the health and well being of the hogs, we guarantee the lowest negative impact on the environment. We do this by feeding the pigs sprouted fodder in addition to their forging in healthy pastures, never giving them hormones or low dose preventive antibiotics. We are equipped to remove and treat any animal from the pasture if it shows signs of illness.
Hogs are our first adventure in farming and are providing an income that is allowing us to do more research in sustainability. A majority of pork sold in stores today is shipped overseas and then shipped back as processed pork for consumption in the United States. Why are we loading animals on trucks and boats to be shipped to other countries for processing when it could all be done right here? This would save our precious fossil fuels and decrease carbon emissions while ensuring the best quality product for our loved ones.
Please visit our website and like us on Facebook to see what we are up to. This is just the beginning of our adventures and we are dedicated to helping humanity achieve food independence beginning here at home. In addition to the pigs, we are beginning a large scale aquaponics system to provide clean, healthy fish and vegetables year round. Together we can change food miles to food feet and obtain total food security starting with Georgia.

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.

We are American Grassfed Association certified.

Through a tried and true method of rotational grazing, our herd at Marview Farms is a hormone-free and we are an antibiotic-less farm. Our animals are raised free-range, without immune system altering vaccinations or harmful steroids and insecticides.

Since 2009 Marview Farms has been committed to producing happier, healthier, and calmer animals than those raised on grain. Please visit our website for more details on how our animals are raised and fed.
Our pastures do not receive any chemical fertilizers, pesticides or herbicides. We make our own compost and apply carbon sources to our pastures so they can grow healthy. By doing this, our farms water-holding capacity has increased dramatically. Which means that our grasses' deep-rooted roots have moisture at times of drought and most of the water that God provides to us stays on our farm and does not run down hill to the river. Our system is also helping our earth!

Pastured Life Farm is a true family farm located in North Central Florida. After growing tired of city life living in the urban core of Jacksonville, we left the city to reconnect to the land and our food. Nearly a decade ago we began raising pasture-raised broiler (meat) chickens and layers for eggs, along with a few dairy and beef cows and a couple of pigs. Over time, we've grown into a full-scale pastured poultry, forest-raised pork and raw grass-fed dairy and creamery.
Our customers take comfort in the fact that each of our animals spends its entire life on our farm, and their quality of life is unmatched. We believe that animals should be raised locally, sustainable, and responsibly by healthy farmers for healthy families.
We place a large emphasis on building soil through perennial and annual native grasses, which enables us to raise our cows on a zero-grain diet, as nature intended. Our chickens and pigs receive the freshest non-GMO grains, tested and guaranteed by the producer to be free from herbicides, pesticides and synthetic fertilizers. (These results are available for us to share upon request.) All of our chickens are processed in our on-farm processing facility, and our pigs are dispatched here in a calm, humane manner before being transported to our nearby red meat processing facility.
We deliver weekly to designated drop points in Jacksonville; bi-weekly to St. Augustine and Gainesville; and monthly to Orlando, Tampa, Valdosta and Tallahassee. Please visit our website for additional information, or drop us a line via email to request our complete product price list and delivery information.
On farm pick-up and tours are always welcome and encouraged.

Red Briar Farms is a small, family owned cattle farm in the foothills of the Cheaha Mountains. We raise registered heritage Highland cattle for herd improvement and sustainable meat production.
Highland cattle are particularly well suited to low stress, low management environments, and finish beautifully on grass. Due to a double hair coat, they do not need a heavy layer of backfat for insulation, allowing them to marble naturally, and produce lean, high quality cuts of beef. Highlands are slow maturing, making their meat flavorful and succulent. Our herd is raised on wide open pastures of mixed native grasses, clover and fescue, using rotational grazing and sustainable pasture management for the health of the land and the cattle. They are antibiotic- and hormone-free, and all grass-fed. They receive hay only the few short months of winter when the pastures are dormant. Our fescue hay is produced on our own farm.
Harvesting is done at a local certified facility to reduce stress from transportation. Beef is sold by the whole, half, or quarter carcass. We will ship. Please see the website for photos of our beautiful animals, and more information on the breed.

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

and disease resistant. Our Black Angus bull was DNA tested for tenderness,
ribeye size and 10 other genetic traits.

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.
