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. They spend their time on pastures getting plenty of fresh air,
sunshine, and clean water as they roam. In the winter months, they are
fed alfalfa hay, also grown on our farm, to provide them with optimum
nutrition and health. In turn, they produce a lean, healthy, nutrient
dense and protein rich meat.
We don’t administer growth hormones or antibiotics.
We do not feed any animal byproducts. We do not apply artificial fertilizers
or chemicals on our pastures.
Our specialty items include Lamb Filet Mignon, Lamb
Summer Sausage, and Smoked Leg of lamb. Other lamb products are:
- Leg of Lamb (boneless)
- Lamb Chop
- Spare Ribs
- Shoulder Chop
- Ground Lamb
We do ship our fresh lamb to your house.

The birth of Fockler Creek Farm was the result of two common stories: A father with diabetes, and a son who wanted to farm but saw no way in. Sound like a strange combination? Shouldn’t in this day and age. Through the experience of a serious case of diabetes (6 shots a day) being cured with whole foods, and a dream of farming becoming reality with the use of innovative and unconventional techniques, Fockler Creek Farms took flight! Brian the previous farmer-to-be, and Scott the cured diabetic, along with their wives and children now raise beyond organic pastured pork, grass-finished beef and lamb, and pastured poultry.
Fockler Creek Farm’s mission is “To implement and develop systems of agriculture that result in solvent farmers, sane people, and sound ecosystems.” Since we are all part of the whole, the creation, the ecosystem, or whatever other term you use to describe it, our mission directs us to provide you with food that nourishes and heals. We’re very passionate about this as we have seen the difference it has made in our own lives. We’re also very passionate about promoting farmer-centric methods of agriculture and ways of farming that affirm the value of life.
For more detailed and technical information check us out on our website, focklercreek.com. We look forward to connecting you with the best our farm has to offer!

Galen Bontrager Farm is a 'Beyond Organic" direct marketing, grass-based farm featuring Salad Bar Beef, Salad Bar Lamb, pastured pork, pastured broilers, pastured turkey, and pastured eggs.
As a former Polyface Inc. apprentice with Joel Salatin, I raise my animals using the Salatin methods that are highlighted in Michael Pollan's runaway bestseller The Omnivores Dilemma. (I'm actually mentioned in the book because I was an apprentice while Michael was there gathering the information for his book).
I am not "certified organic" but avoid the use of chemicals, growth hormones, genetically modified grains, antibiotics, dead animal parts, chicken litter, or drugs. Sales of some products are seasonal and others year-round; please contact me for availability. Custom beef is sold in wholes, halves, and quarters, and custom lamb in wholes or halves. Broilers and turkeys are custom ordered, processed, and picked up at the farm. On-farm sales of non-chlorinated eggs May–October.
I do not ship food anywhere and encourage people to patronize local producers. People are welcome to visit the farm, connect with their food, and see how it's raised. I greatly appreciate your support to keep local family farming alive and well.
For any inquiries about my products, ordering information, farm visits, and full-scale guided farm tours, please give me a call. I look forward to serving you. Joyfully at your service!

Grateful Graze began as a way to provide healthy food from healthy soil to local families. Today we offer 100% Grass Fed/Grass Finished Beef online and it is available for pickup at a growing number of locations (enter your zip code on our website to find the location nearest you). In the future, we will offer lamb, eggs, chicken and pork all raised upon the same soil health and animal health principles with which we began this journey.
We have worked for many years to adopt soil-improving practices such as no-till, buffer strips and cover crops on our family farm in Cambridge, Illinois. Now we are bringing livestock back to the land in the way God designed the soil-plant-animal system to work. We believe that soil health, animal health, and human health are linked together in ways that we are just beginning to understand.
Our cattle are outside in fields, never eat grain, and move across the land like a herd. They never receive hormones, and only a few get an antibiotic in the event of a life-threatening situation, never in their feed.
We are grateful for your belief in us, our team who makes this possible, the animals in our care, and the land we steward. Thank you for choosing Grateful Graze.

Graze Co. provides pasture-raised, hormone- and antibiotic-free chicken, and pork! Grown and raised with care from our family farm in Carlisle, Iowa.
Around here, we're all about restoration. Restoring our land. Restoring agriculture. And restoring a simpler way of life. We believe in the beauty of connecting with the food that nourishes us and find great joy in inspiring others to do the same. Our farming practices are not just sustainable because ultimately, sustainability is like treading water. Managed Intensive Rotational Grazing describes our farming practices. Whether you're looking for wholesome food to serve your family or a dose of old-fashioned inspiration from our farm, we are happy to serve you.
Pasture Raised Chicken
Our chickens are chickens. We let them be chickens. They have access to sunshine, fresh air, clean water, bugs, and grass. Lots of grass. They eat NON-GMO feed from a local farm and are moved daily to fresh grass. What does that mean for you? Richer flavor and a more nutrient-dense meat for your family.
Pastured Raised Pork
Our pigs are pigs. We let them be pigs. They live outside and have access to sunshine, clean water, fresh pasture, and all the mud in which to root and roll. They eat dirt, roots, bugs, grubs, and grass. Lots of grass. Our pigs are supplemented with NON-GMO feed and NON-GMO organic barley fodder (hydroponically grown, if you're technical). All these nutrients, vitamins, enzymes, and minerals lead to a healthy pig and more flavorful pork. We may be biased, but the Berkshire breed is the best tasting pork around and you need to give it a try!

McGreal Family Farm is a small farming business rooted in Clayton County, Northeast Iowa. Currently managed by a third generation Iowa farmer and his partner, this land is home.
Firmly planted in a small town, we believe in local connections but we also service areas as far away as Chicago with our beef. We are not shipping at this time but we can provide a delivery service. We specialize in pasture-raised, 100% grass-fed, custom beef, although we have big plans to grow flowers and vegetables during the next growing season. Deeply inspired by Barbara Kingsolver’s book Animal, Vegetable, Miracle, we implement organic practices on our farm without an official certification.
Our cattle are rotated often, allowing them to always have access to the most nutritious plants, and allowing the native flora to replenish naturally. Our Black Angus and Hereford Angus crossbreeds graze on 1,000 acres of driftless land composed of fields and timber. Our nearby creeks are fenced off to prevent unnecessary impact. Our beef is unadulterated, meaning they are hormone and antibiotic-free. Always.
Our cattle will become available for purchase January 2019, and we are currently accepting reservations for whole, halves and quarters. Contact us at email@example.com or give us a call at 563-245-1041 with any questions or orders. We are located at 20447 Elm Road Strawberry Point, IA 52076. You can find us on Google Maps and Facebook under “McGreal Family Farm.” And, if you’re in the area, feel free to stop by.

The mature warm season grasses native to SW South Dakota impart a flavor, juiciness, and marbling that can’t be beat. Our products are lab tested for nutrition content and food safety. Our lab testing and research back up the claims that Eatwild.com advocates.

Pastured Organic Mulefoot Pork
This pork is not the other white meat! We are so blessed to be raising critically endangered mulefoot pigs on our farm!

They are rotated through 40 acres of pasture and timber throughout the year where they snack on alfalfa and clover, pick up dropped fruit in our orchards and hunt for acorns and hickory nuts in the fall! We supplement our pigs with less than 10% of their body weight in certified organic oats, barley and alfalfa that has been fermented to give our pork a unique, clean flavor that is unlike any other!

and stored hay during the winter months. The herd is comprised of full-blooded,

largest bison producer in Iowa, maintains their herd of over
300 grass-fed bison on 1000 acres "as close to natural conditions
as possible." The animals are free-range and graze on native prairie
grasses; no corn or other grains are fed. Herds are managed for natural
family order, an evolutionary development that minimizes stress, the
precursor of pathogens, illness and tough meat. Healthy stress-free
lives mean they have never needed nor been given a shot or antibiotics
in their life.
Humane slaughter in the field eliminates the unnecessary
stress of being transported to a slaughterhouse. Meat is dry-aged for
21 days and processed at a State Inspected locker. Bison meat is available
in front quarters, hind quarters and hanging halves.
