Blue Bear Farm & Cattle Co., LLC is a small, family-owned and operated farm in southwest Georgia, conveniently located between Thomasville, GA and Tallahassee, FL. We specialize in 100% all-natural, grass fed/grass finished beef. We are certified Animal Welfare Approved and Grassfed by A Greener World.
Our grazing management practices are low-stress and adaptive to our grasses and the nutritional needs of our cattle. We do not allow confined feeding, grain by-products, or GMO plants. We adhere to organic practices and do not use antibiotics or hormones. Our cattle happily graze in our lush pastures surrounded by a native wildlife habitat.
When we established our farm in 2015, our mission was to heal our land from the ravages of sterilized hay farming, return life to our soil, and bring back diversity in our native forages and grasses. After building the necessary infrastructure, we brought in our first herd of percentage and registered Red Devon cattle. Devon is a Livestock Conservancy Heritage breed and is widely recognized as one of the most efficient breeds of cattle to flourish on grass and to produce flavorful beef. The natural docility of Devon cattle lends to a pleasant texture and tenderness.
We work with an Animal Welfare Approved USDA processor and sell our beef by the cut. Our beef is frozen and vacuum sealed. Purchases can be made through our website, picked up at various nearby locations, and locally delivered. Subscribing on our website and following us on Facebook and Instagram are the best ways to know when we have beef available. We also sell our beef through the Red Hills Online Market.
The best way to have confidence in a healthful food source is to know your farmer. We invite you to contact us.

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.

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.

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!

Hidden Hills Farm is located just outside of Columbia, SC in Leesville. Our farm offers pasture-raised chicken, pork, and eggs. We do not use any growth hormones or antibiotics. We offer local pickup options as well as shipping of select products.
Four principles govern how we do things on the farm:
- Humane practices – This is the core of what we do, and we strive to differentiate ourselves in this. Our job is outside with our birds and livestock where our constant interactions allow us to learn from them and create an environment where their needs are met in a natural setting. It also allows us to respond to the constant challenges farms face such as extreme temperatures, drought, etc. We attribute our success to our “animal welfare first” approach. We believe all animals should be treated with respect and care, especially the ones we are raising to be food.
- Environment – Our goal is to master regenerative practices and produce the best quality soil and forage we can for our animals. We are in our third season of rotational farming and are already seeing our farm bounce back and come to life.
- Healthy – For several years we benefited from eating local, pastured meats and produce and personally experienced the profound effects it had on our health and quality of life. Now we work to produce these products and to educate consumers as to why this is so crucial to our future.
- Flavor – We believe that food should taste good. We think most of what an animal does in its everyday life affects the end product—its health benefits as well as its flavor. We are constantly aware of this in our daily practices. While we agree that we are what we eat eats, we also believe we are what we eat and how it lives.

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.

Wagon Wheel Ranch, located 14 miles south of Athens, is a 200-acre family farm that has been operating for 50 years. We raise antibiotic and hormone-free, 100% grass fed, grass finished, free-range, cross-bred Black Angus beef.
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 conditions.
We love our cows and treat them with respect and kindness. We cross purebred Santa Gertrudis cows (good mothers) with a purebred Hereford bull (gentle disposition and 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 crossbreeding produces healthier, disease-resistant cows and calves. Our Black Angus bull was DNA-tested for tenderness, ribeye size and 10 other genetic traits.
Our beef is sold live on the hoof for $2.50–3.50/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 buy beef! We also sell individual vacuum-packed and frozen retail cuts.
A whole carcass will fit in a 14-cubic-foot chest freezer; 1/2 carcass fits in a 7-cubic-foot freezer. A live-weight beef yields about 50% hanging weight, and typically produces 31% steaks, 31% roasts, 36% ground beef and 2% miscellaneous cuts. Live weights average 1000–1300 pounds. Two to four friends can go together to divide a whole carcass into halves or quarters.
To ensure product quality, we only sell calves born, raised, and finished on our farm. Make an appointment in advance if you want to pick out your own calf at the farm.
Wagon Wheel Ranch is certified by Animal Welfare Approved/ A Greener World for humane production and harvesting of our beef cattle, including the processing plant we use.
