Berriedale Farms is located in the Cowpasture River Valley of Virginia.

Nelson Hoy and Lizzie Biggs are conservationists and how we manage the farm's forests and grasslands, river and drafts are governed by a progressive conservation easement held by The Nature Conservancy. Nelson and Lizzie have made life-long commitments to preserve the unique grass fed genetics of heritage Red Poll cattle and to breed critically rare Suffolk draft horses. We endeavor to raise the healthiest and the most flavorful, tender and juicy grass-fed and -finished beef anywhere east of the Mississippi River.

  • Red Poll cattle at Berriedale Farms are raised on native grasses, legumes and forbs.
  • Berriedale allows its cattle the time, space and peacefulness necessary to live into full maturity.
  • We do not rush our cattle to market and sacrifice beef quality for the economy of throughput.
  • Berriedale does not use growth hormones, prophylactic antibiotics or insecticide implants.
  • Nelson and Lizzie ensure that our Red Poll cattle have free access to cool, clear and water.
  • Red Poll cattle at Berriedale Farms have free-choice access to essential minerals and salt.
  • We do not use herd dogs, electric cattle prods or separate individuals from their herd mates.
  • Berriedale Farms patronizes a certified humane meat processing plant.
  • Veterinary care includes vaccinations, antibiotics, surgeries and fly control measures.

Berriedale Farms, Nelson and Lizzie serve health-conscious families that value environmentally-sound farm practices and who choose to patronize a small family farm in rural Appalachia. We harvest ten (10) beeves each year and that's it. Nelson and Lizzie enjoy an extended “family” relationship with about 200 households, most located within 200-odd miles. Many families with children visit Berriedale Farms and stay in our Cabin on the Cowpasture.

Clark's Farm offers 100% grass-fed beef and pastured pork grown on our farm in the heart of Howard County. We also raise and sell all-natural vegetables, fresh herbs, and cut flowers.

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 never 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 raise 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 all-natural 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. We also have a variety of sausages that are sugar-free.

Our 100% grass-fed beef and pastured pork are raised on our 540-acre farm, processed at a USDA-approved facility, and available frozen at our store. You can purchase our meats at Clark's Elioak Farm-Castle Store, 10500 State Route 108, Ellicott City, MD 21042.

Cold Creek Farm & Firewood has been a family-owned farm and business based in Glyndon, MD since 1987. We offer beef, pork, chickens, and eggs.

Our goal is to leave our land and animals better than we found them. We believe our livestock are meant to consume and live as nature intended them to. With proper management, animals can add nutrients and shape the land and soil in a way that no chemical fertilizer, nor rotary tiller can. In turn, our grounds retain more water and build an impeccable topsoil while decreasing carbon dioxide emissions immensely!

Our cattle graze on lush pasture in the warm seasons and hay in winter to keep them happy, full, and most importantly, healthy. Beef can be ordered by the 1/4, 1/2 and whole.

Pork is pasture raised and moved once a month. We purchase our pigs at a young age from a local farm to ensure they live the majority of their lives on lush pasture with lots of room to roam around, root and forage as nature intended. Their meat is darker in color due to the high mineral and vitamin content of their diet. Pork can be ordered by the half or whole.

Our chickens are free range and move behind our cattle. Our broilers are moved everyday with chicken tractors and are processed on farm. We sell eggs, and chicken by the whole bird, breasts, thighs, or wings.

Evermore Farm is a small, family-owned and operated livestock and produce farm. We are located in Westminster, MD with easy access from Baltimore, MD; Washington, DC; Frederick, MD; and south-central Pennsylvania. Although we are not certified organic, we run our farm in a sustainable manner. We support local food systems, better stewardship of our land, and raising animals with respect. We offer seasonal shares of our produce, meats (beef, pork, lamb), poultry (chickens) and eggs.

We raise fork-tender Dexter/Belted Galloway beef cattle, wonderfully mild tasting Katahdin lambs, and flavorful heritage Berkshire hogs. We have fresh eggs from Rhode Island Reds and produce free-range broilers (chickens) March-November. We promote an intelligent husbandry that supports a more sustainable farming and food system. Our lambs and beef are grass-fed and all our animals are raised without added hormones or antibiotics.

We follow natural sustainable farming practices, including rotational grazing. Grazing on open pasture helps with the general health of the animals: they get exercise, absorb sunshine, and breathe fresh air. They seem happier that way, and we are, too.

All of our meat is USDA inspected for quality. You have several options when purchasing our meats and poultry for your freezer—at our farm store, on-line ordering, delivery available. We offer whole, half and quarter steers, whole and half hogs, and whole lambs. Multi-Season CSA meat, poultry and egg shares available. Check our website for price and availability.

John and Ginger have made lots of great friends working in agriculture and as producers. Evermore Farm is their ardent effort to “walk the talk” about the viability of diversified, sustainable small farms. However, both agree that their best “crop” is their children, Susan and Andrew. Both are now married with wonderful partners and have children of their own. Family is our greatest joy and serves as “True North” on the farmer’s compass.

Please call or email with any questions.

We love our animals so when they are sick we do treat them, but in the least invasive way possible. Vegetables and fruits grown on our farm are treated the same way. We create a healthy soil that the plants can thrive in without using pesticides.

Our goal is to create a farm where you can visit us and our animals and where you will have the opportunity to purchase fresh-from-the-farm healthy and tasty things to eat.

Frog Eye Vineyard is small family farm and winery in the Pleasant Valley of Washington County, Maryland. We sell pork, honey, and wine. We create products that promote the health and wellbeing of our animals, land, and customers.

Our mission is to provide the highest quality meat raised in the most natural, humane, and healthy environment possible, while connecting the consumer to the farmer, so that they know and trust the story behind their food.

Our pasture-raised pigs live in groups of five with more than two acres per group to graze, sunbathe, root through the dirt, and wallow in their self-made mud holes. They eat milk, fruit, and what they find on pasture. We use no corn, soy, antibiotics, pesticides, herbicides, or hormones. The result is happy pigs and healthier, flavorful meat.

We feed our pigs in a way that reduces the amount of polyunsaturated fats (PUFA) in the meat. Unlike cows and other ruminant animals, pigs are what they eat. The fat composition of pork is completely in our control. Modern feedlots, and even many small farms, feed pigs corn and soy, which are high in PUFA.

The amount of PUFA in the American diet has skyrocketed in recent decades. The evidence that excess PUFA is a major contributor to modern diseases continues to accumulate. These oils accumulate in pork if you feed it to the animals, and they also accumulate in humans.

Our 100% grass fed cattle are rotated around the pastures followed by our egg layer chickens in a symbiotic, soil-building relationship that mimics nature.

All of our meat and eggs are antibiotic and hormone-free. (Note: Long Stone Farm also sells beef, which does not qualify for listing on Eatwild because their cattle receive some supplementation.)

Mary’s Land Farm is located in Ellicott City, MD. We sell beef, lamb, pork, chicken, duck eggs and chicken eggs and offer farm tours.

After meetings with Joel Salatin and listening to lectures at PASA and the Weston A Price foundation, we realized that the right use of our land was raising superior breeds of livestock on pasture built on high-quality soils. We used the expertise of the Savory Institute and the Permaculture Research Institute to improve our forages and soils.

Beef: We raise Devon cattle on grass only. Devon cattle were left out of the feedlot fad that has had a strangle hold on the beef industry since World War II. Devons have long been bred to produce succulent flavorful beef from a grass diet.

Pork: Our heritage pigs are raised in the 40 acres of woods around the property. This healthy environment provides better forage for healthier meat with better flavor.

Lamb: Our Katahdin sheep are naturally resistant to common maladies and their meat has a great reputation. The sheep consume the highest quality grass and hay and produce the highest quality meat.

Duck Eggs: Our Sweet Emily ducks are natural high-production layers. They have a gated pasture and they come into the laying house to lay eggs in nesting boxes. We do not clean the eggs to avoid wiping off the natural protection the ducks leave on the egg when they lay.

Chicken Eggs: Our chickens are always out in the pasture and they lay in special nesting boxes. They roost in chicken tractors we provide for them which we move around the pasture.

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.
