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.

Buckland Farm is situated in Southern Bedford County, half an hour’s drive off Route 30 in Pennsylvania and Interstate 68 in Maryland. This scenic farm is home to pastured Tamworth cross pigs and the whole hog and hog-share pork into which they are made.

Buckland Farm’s Tamworth cross herds are born in a farrowing center on the home acres and then moved to woodland pasturage when they’re weaned. The sows also reside in fresh pasture while they gestate. Our pigs eat cull from our 2.5 acre, organically producing vegetable gardens. In addition, they receive a daily supplement of freshly ground and locally grown (though not organically certified) feed as well as produce seconds from a locally focused grocery store. In season (July through November) our hogs enjoy daily access to apples. The pastured pigs regularly receive sprouted acorns from October into January.

Our pork is called a revelation by all who taste it—including numerous ethical vegetarians who willingly delight in pork-based meals if the pork comes from our pigs.

We have a range of live-weight hogs: old sows (600 lbs), ‘lard’ pigs (325-450 lbs), standard commercial weight pigs (225-250 lbs) and smaller pigs for whole-hog roasts (40-125 lbs). The butcher at the local meat locker is a genius, and very reasonably priced. We’re happy to get you comfortable with the hog-share process.

To enjoy a Buckland Farm egg is to lose your pleasure in virtually any egg from anywhere else. Our chickens are guarded by a rooster. Our fully pastured flock roams very freely across the home acres, into the heirloom produce gardens and sometimes as far as the antique apple orchard or the heirloom cherry orchard.

Buckland Farm is only 2.5 hours drive from DC or Baltimore. It’s about the same drive time from Pittsburgh. Come and visit the farm to see ‘your’ pig on the hoof, you won’t be disappointed. You’re welcome to see our pigmanship practices in action at any time.

Contact us to make a reservation to possess yourself of premium fully–pastured Tamworth cross flesh. Our expert staff can bring you up to speed with recipes and techniques for homemade lard, bacon, sausages, and more! You’ll find there’s surprising value in using every part of the hogshare available to you.

Clark's Never Sell The Land Farm offers 100% grass-fed beef and pastured pork grown on our farm in the heart of Howard County.

We manage the grazing of our cattle to enhance the growth of the pasture, the health of the soil, and the nutritional value of our products. Throughout the year the cattle eat only high-quality pasture and stored grasses in the form of hay. We do not feed grain, soy, corn silage, or feed concentrates and we do not give the cattle any synthetic hormones, steroids, regular antibiotics or animal byproducts.

We also raised heritage breed pigs on pasture. We rotate the pigs through grasslands and wooded areas so the pigs can run, play, and root all day. In addition to what they find on the pasture we feed the pigs extras from our chemical free vegetables garden. We also offer the pigs a non-GMO (not from genetically modified organisms) blend of grains. We have the hams and bacon we sell cured nitrate-free.

Our 100% grass-fed beef and pastured pork are raised on our 540-acre farm and processed at a USDA-approved facility and available frozen at our store. You can purchase our meats at Clark's Elioak Farm, 10500 State Route 108, Ellicott City, MD 21042. The farm is open Tuesday thru Sunday, 10 AM to 5 PM from April 1 through November 6.

Grand View Farm is a multispeciated, pasture-based farm that is focused on organically grown, local food that is produced in a way that simultaneously heals the land. Our customers come out to enjoy the farm and purchase their beef, pork, chicken and eggs from our on-farm store.

Our grass fed only cattle are rotated around the pastures followed by our egg layer chickens in a symbiotic, soil-building relationship that mimics nature. The pigs inhabit the wooded areas and pastures of the farm, adding an important element to its multispeciated aspects. Rotated like the cattle and chickens, these pigs lightly disturb the woodland floor, trim the brush and fertilize the ground. The broiler chickens are in floor-less "chicken tractors" that are lined up across the pastures and moved daily to a fresh patch of grass. The broilers arrive on the farm as day-old peeps, live their lives outdoors in clean, healthy environments until they are culled here on the farm.

It's Only Natural Farm, (ION Farm for short), is located in southern MD, approximately 30 minutes south of Washington DC. We raise Texas Longhorn Beef Cattle, Heritage Tamworth Hogs, Layer and Broiler Chickens, Boer Goats, Muscovy Ducks, for sale to the public for meat. We use no hormones, antibiotics, or steroids.

We practice sustainable agriculture, common sense economics, and the 'all natural' raising of livestock. Although we realize the eventuality, we treat our animals as our pets. They reflect this caring in their calm manner and their desire to be petted and rubbed. We employ "Management Intensive Grazing" and the "Leader Follower Program" with all of our animals. As in nature, every animal has a job and serves a purpose in the "all natural" maintenance of the farm.

Our Texas Longhorns are natural foragers and are raised on pasture and in the woods.They are great foragers and eat a larger variety of plants and grasses than many other breeds. In addition they are naturally leaner in fat.

Our Heritage Tamworth pigs are raised on pasture and finished on acorns in our woods, giving the meat a hint of nutty flavor. These pigs produce leaner pork and are known as the 'bacon hog' due to the extra length of their bodies. The Tamworths graze pasture after the cattle, eating what the cattle choose not to and helping the process of turning manure into the ground.

Chevon is gaining popularity by the day. Goat meat is similar in protein with less saturated fat and cholesterol than most meats—even chicken. The taste is very mellow with no game flavor. Our Boer Goats are a part of our "Leader Follower Program." They clean up the fence lines and keep down the weeds.

Our poultry is either free range or in a chicken tractor helping to maintain the pastures. In addition to eating grasses, plants, and bugs, after the other animals are finished, the birds scratch around and mix the manure with the soils to fertilize the farm in an "all natural" manner. Our Eggs, Broiler/Fryer Chickens, and Muscovy Ducks are naturally higher in Omega 3s.

Meat is available by reservation as 1/4, 1/2, and whole beef, 1/2 hog and whole hog, bar-b-que hog, and whole goat. Poultry and fowl are sold by the whole bird.

Beef and pork is processed at a USDA Inspected Facility and vacuum packaged with our farm label, description of the cut, and the weight of the package.

We are a working farm but welcome prospective customers to the farm by appointment.

We are members of the American Livestock Breeds Conservancy, the Tamworth Swine Association, the American Boer Goat Association, and we support the American Farmland Trust.

We look forward to providing you and your family the freshest in all natural meats.

It's Only Natural Farm, Lee and Tasha Anthony, 9645 Ironsides Road, Nanjemoy MD 20662. (301) 643-1563.

Mary's Delight Farm is an 88-acre certified organic farm located in the Catoctin Mountains 30 minutes north of Frederick. The farm has been managed organically since 1988. Our goal is to provide clean air, fresh water and green grass to our animals to make them healthy. We use rotational grazing, cover crops, buffer zones, no till and many other practices to improve the soil. This has helped us improve our animals as well as the abundant wildlife around.

All of the lamb comes from sheep at the farm. We have about 60 ewes that lamb between January and March. Our lamb is raised on pastures and hay from the farm. They are raised organic but we do not have a certified organic processor nearby.

We recently added steers to the farm to have a multi species rotation. They are purchased from a reputable grass farm and are never fed grain. They do very well on the farm. Visitors are always welcome but please set up an appointment so we can answer any questions you may have.

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.

Pure Indian Foods is a small family-owned business that takes pride in making an exceptional quality Ghee from Grass-Fed cows. Ghee is butter with the milk solids removed. Our family has been in this business in Northern India for 5 generations, since 1889. We make our ghee fresh, with care, in small batches, right here in the USA. We use Grass-Fed, USDA-certified Organic butter for making our ghee, and we are in the process of applying for Organic certification.

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.

Wagon Wheel Ranch raises beef, lamb, pork, goat, and eggs free range on our pastures. We do not use antibiotics or hormones.

Our pigs are raised in a wooded area with a connected pasture where they eat weeds and grass, which give the meat a better flavor. They are supplemented with some pig feed and raw peanuts. The oil from the peanuts gives the meat that famous Virginia ham taste. Because our pigs roam free they produce lean pork.

Our sheep and goats only eat pasture and hay in the winter. The sheep are hair sheep that shed their wool so no shearing is necessary. Hair sheep are naturally parasite resistant and do not require frequent drenching.

Our laying flock roam the farm during the day and return to the barn at night for protection from predators. Their diet consists of ground corn and bugs/insects, the diet Nature intended so that they would have the necessary oil to produce eggs. Commercial egg laying operations that confine their chickens use old restaurant grease as a cheap source of oil. This makes the eggs high in the bad cholesterol. In the winter we feed sunflower seeds as their source for oil.

We raise small frame herefords and black angus. The beef industry has bred to produce bigger cows that do not efficiently convert grass to meat. Our cows are easy on their environment, and are only fed hay in addition to pasture grass. Our cuts of beef tend to be smaller than what is sold in the stores, but there is less fat.

In the summer months all our animals have free access to organic kelp and remond salt; in the winter months the animals have access to minerals.

Wagon Wheel Ranch is located in Mt. Airy, Maryland, an hour north of Washington DC, 45 minutes west of Baltimore, 20 minutes northwest of Columbia, and 15 minutes east of Frederick.
