American Heritage Farm is a fifth-generation family farm specializing in heritage grass-fed meat from endangered breeds of livestock.

Beery Farms of Michigan LLC is an 80-acre farm on which I raise all-grass-fed beef and goats.

The farm is operated in the Argentine grazing style using a diverse array of perennial grasses and summer-winter annuals to meet the year-round forage needs of the animals. Like the Argentines, the paddocks are divided to provide both annual and perennial forages simultaneously for an always fresh high quality diet. By using stockpiling in the fall and early greening small grains in the spring, it is only necessary to feed hay and haylage during the most severe winter months.

The farm is in the third year transition to Organic Certification. It is located just south of Lansing and visitors are always welcome.

Brown Sugar Jerseys is located in northwestern St. Clair County, 2 miles south of Yale, Michigan. We are a family-owned and operated farm consisting of 430 acres of tillable pasture and woodlots. We have approximately 70 acres of permanent pastureland and rotate our cropland with clover seedings which we bale as high-moisture hay (preserved pasture) for feed for the winter months, and also graze those clover fields. We raise about 20 calves a year and have about 20 grass fed steers to offer annually.

We have been dedicated to raising polled grazing jerseys since 1983. From birth through 6 months of age our calves are fed 1/2 pound per head per day of non-GMO corn. After 6 months of age, they eat only fresh pasture in the growing season, and high-moisture clover hay in the non-green season and free choice minerals always, absolutely no grain. The meat, fat, and marbling of jerseys that eat clover pasture or high-moisture clover hay has a special sweet flavor. The fat is yellow because of the high beta carotene. Our steers are fully 2 years old before slaughter for full flavor. Jersey and Clover, the winning combination!

Our jerseys are humanely raised and handled; there are no hormones, antibiotics, or medicated feed in their diet. Housing and nutrition are age- and weather-appropriate, with the emphasis on grazing, working with Michigan's climate and growing seasons. Our animals' health and comfort are always top priority.

We sell by the 1/4, 1/2, or whole cow. Please call for pricing and availability to reserve your beef today. Pickup only, we do not ship.

At JNelson Farms, our vision is to provide healthy food to help people live a healthy life. As well, we want to be good stewards of the land and use it in a sustainable manner. JNelson Farms is owned and operated by Jon and Tammy Nelson and is located about 8 miles northwest of Midland, Michigan on Stark Road.

We have 260 acres of pasture land to support our herd of grazing cattle. Our cattle enjoy the pasture all year long. In the summer, forage is harvested from additional land for the cattle to eat in the seasons when pasture growth isn’t adequate to supply their nutritional needs. Just in case there are needed minerals or vitamins they are not receiving from the pasture, they also have these available as free choice supplements. We work very closely with Michigan State University to utilize the latest research around grazing and land management.

In addition to the farm owned by Jon and Tammy, JNelson Farms also represents an informal cooperative community of producers throughout Michigan who have a common vision to use their resources and capabilities to provide healthy food for people who want it. The goal of the cooperative community is to coordinate the producing interests of our cooperators to develop a supply chain that can provide large enough numbers of animals to entertain the demand of larger organizations. Each producer follows the same production protocol as Jon and Tammy's home farm. Different roles that our cooperators play include: supply of yearling cattle, contract grazing, hay supply.

JNelson Farms has high quality grassfed beef available year round. Please contact us if you would like some. We look forward to helping you and your family enjoy the benefits of grassfed beef.

Our pork is also mob grazed for about 80% of their summer diet, supplemented mostly with craft brewing byproduct for unmatched flavor.

Our chickens graze for much of their diet, evidenced by their nutritious yellow fat.

Experience the satisfaction of knowing your food and your farmer. We are your clean meat connection. “You are what you eat eats.” ~Michael Pollan, In Defense of Food: An Eater’s Manifesto.

THE LAND: We are in the business of harvesting solar energy and sequestering carbon with green plants. Our mission is to create healthy land, healthy animals, healthy people, and a healthy economy. Pure Northern Michigan cool air, healthy soils, clean water, and healthy grass contribute to our unique tender “sweet” flavor. Healthy soils produce more vibrant plants, creating delicious and nutritious meat! We don’t use chemical fertilizers, pesticides, herbicides or any other “cides.”

THE ANIMALS: Our Chickens, Cows and Pigs have constant access to fresh, clean, diverse pasture, water, and plenty of sunshine. They spend their day eating grasses, roots and small plants as well as pecking, rooting, and scratching for grubs, worms and bugs. To satisfy their protein requirements, we supplement their diet with locally milled, non-GMO grains. This simple idea is what we call “pasture raised.” Nutritionally, the Chicken, Pork and Eggs offer higher Omega 3 fatty acids, CLAs, Beta Carotene and Vitamin E, and far more Vitamin D than their commercially raised counterparts, providing you with the purest foods from healthy animals on healthy land. Our animals live a natural and happy life – FREE of vaccinations, chemical de-wormers, and growth hormones. Not certified organic... but Beyond Organic. Your food should be this good!

THE FARM: Resonance Center Farm is family-owned, pasture-based, beyond organic, overlooking beautiful Mullet Lake in Pure Northern Michigan in Cheboygan County. Our philosophy is that happy animals doing what nature intended them to do (foraging, socializing, digging, scratching, catching bugs) provide healthier meat and eggs. We believe animals should live a natural life, be treated humanely and with respect.

Upstream Farm offers rotationally grazed beef and pastured pork available in bulk custom orders and in USDA individual cuts. We are a family farming together. Our goal is to raise animals outside in ways that benefit them, heal the earth, and nourish the people who eat them.

The foundation of our beef is our forages, mainly grass and legumes on pasture. These plants take sun, water, and carbon from the air and produce the energy and protein needed to grow and sustain the cattle. We see this as the most restorative and forgiving process on our farm.

We rotate our small herd multiple times per week on pasture. This resting of the pasture allows for regrowth, as well as a break in the parasite life cycle. In the winter they are fed hay, mostly harvested from our land. Our cattle are never fed grains. All our beef is dry-aged for 3 weeks and can be purchased in bulk or by individual cut.

Our pigs live outside, enjoying the shade of trees, tasting a variety of forages, and exploring new paddocks every few weeks. They rotate on pasture around our pond and between a shady strip along the wetlands and the market garden (Well-Watered Farm). We plan to use the pigs’ digging abilities in the garden area after harvest. The pigs also have free access to a locally milled non-GMO grain feed. No antibiotics or growth hormones ever. Our goal is to breed, farrow and raise our own stock of heritage breed pigs.

Everything can be purchased from the farm or delivery is available locally through Market Wagon. Email us with questions or to schedule a farm pick-up. We are currently taking bulk orders for fall 2021. Read more about purchasing here.
