The Anoka-Butte Lumber Company - Marlowe Farm's is
a small grass based farm located in the hills of Northern Nebraska.
The Anoka-Butte Lumber Company was owned and operated by my family
from 1936-1993. I am in the process of resurrecting it. Hogs and cattle
were a part the family business.
I moved onto this farm in August of 2003. I raise cattle,
sheep and pigs. All animals are raised on pasture. Cattle
and sheep are fed exclusively grass and a limited amount of hay in
the winter months. The cows, sheep and pigs are rotated through a series
of paddocks. The pigs are fed varying amounts of grain depending on
class. Sows and gilts graze/forage for the bulk of their diet with
some corn fed as an energy supplement and to keep them docile. Growing
pigs are fed a ground corn/soybean ration. Low-grain pork and No-grain
pork are available upon request.
By keeping livestock in the pastures manure is spread
evenly across the ground. What manure is collected around the barns is
spread on my poorest ground. I'm hoping the application of manure to
my poorest ground will in time make it some of my best ground.
At this time I only have pork available for sale.
I do ship.

Circle Arrow Longhorns is a family-owned
and operated business whose mission is to produce safe, wholesome,
all-natural grass-fed meat products. Our beef is not only healthy,
it is extremely tender, juicy, flavorful, and most important, safe.
We are dedicated to respecting our animals, the environment and our
Longhorn meat is naturally low-fat, but our cattle
are also raised on free-range pasture and forage with no grain, antibiotics,
or steroids, which makes them even higher in Omega 3 and other important
nutrients. The cattle are processed and packaged at a USDA inspected
plant using a revolutionary process called Rinse and Chill, which drastically
reduces the dangers of E. coli and gives the meat a wonderfully fresh
taste and smell.
We also provide an all-natural raw diet for the four-legged
members of our customers' families.

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.

Nebraska Natural Meats is
a cooperative of eight farmers from northeast Nebraska who work together
to provide a year-round supply of hormone-free, naturally-fed beef,
chicken, duck, pork, and buffalo.
Our beef and buffalo meats are naturally lean because
the animals are raised on a high-protein grass diet, and they get plenty
of exercise while grazing. Some of the cattle are finished on a small
amount of grain and all the buffalo are raised on grass only. You can
request grass-only beef if that is your preference. Meat from animals
raised on organically certified pasture is also available.
Buffalo (bison), beef and pork are available year
round. Lamb and poultry are sold in season only. The beef and pork are
available in whole, half or split half carcasses. Once your order is
placed, the animal will be delivered to an agreed upon processing facility
and your meat will be cut and wrapped to your specifications. All of
the meat is handled in accordance with state and federal regulations.
Prices are competitive with grocery store prices.

Oak View Park — Naturally Grass Fed
and Grass Fattened Red Angus Beef. Oak View Beef is all natural,
grass fed and grass fattened beef. We administer no hormones, feed
no antibiotics or animal by-products.
We sell beef by the quarter, half, whole carcass,
or cut and wrapped in a USDA inspected locker. Arrangements can be made
for local delivery of the meat. If you're located in the vicinity of
northeast Nebraska we will also deliver a fattened beef to a locker of
your choosing for processing. We strongly believe in eating local and
do not ship across country. We sell hamburger retail off the ranch.
Oak View Park is located on the eastern edge of the
Nebraska Sandhills north of Orchard, NE. Our small ranch is entirely
grass, sprinkled with cedar trees and oak covered creek bottoms. We move
the cattle daily, weekly or monthly depending upon the range management
goals. Fresh water is always available so the cattle can be healthy in
a low-stress environment.
No synthetic insecticides, pesticides, fungicides
or herbicides are applied anywhere on our place. We use organic and conventional
fertilizers. Conventional fertilizers speed up rehabilitation of the
land. Fertility is gradually being restored to soil that was mined out
by conventional farming in the early 1900s. Our goal is to be naturally
sustainable, eventually transforming the ranch to an organic enterprise.

Straight Arrow Bison Ranch of Broken Bow, NE is located in the heart of the state's grasslands. We have been raising and marketing bison meat since 1995.
In 1995 when we started raising bison we followed the conventional pattern of feeding grain to finish the bison. After reading the information on www.eatwild.com and other sources about the benefits of total grass-feeding, we began marketing a few bison which were 100% grass-finished. After receiving favorable responses from our customers, we converted to 100% grass-feeding for all of them.
Our animals do not receive any vaccinations, hormones, animal by-products, or antibiotics. We add apple cider vinegar to their water supply to keep them healthy and have had no need for other treatments since we started that. We believe in feeding the microbes in the soil to produce healthy animals which will nourish healthy people.
The animals are field-harvested to prevent stress prior to slaughter. They are shot and bled in the pasture, then dressed out in a state-inspected on-farm facility. The hanging quarters are transported by refrigerated truck to a USDA facility for packaging. The meat is sold by individual packages (steaks, roasts, stew meat, hamburger, summer sausage, hot dogs, jerky) or in bundles of various size.
We make monthly deliveries to Grand Island, Kearney, North Platte and McCook as well as having the meat available at our ranch. The meat is also available from Lone Tree Foods in the Lincoln/Omaha area and at Wildflour Grocer in O’Neill, NE. We can also ship by UPS.
We have freeze-dried raw organ meat pieces for dogs or cats; all the nutrition of raw with the convenience of dry food. We are also experimenting with freeze-dried bone broth.
Bleached skulls, tanned hides and a few other items such as vests and purses from hides are also available.

Thankful Harvest is a grass-based, organic farm applying organic management for the benefit of the consumer, the environment, the animals and the farm.

We strive to deliver maximum human nutrition to your family's table.
We deliver to homes, food coops, and buying clubs in Iowa, Nebraska, and South Dakota. We also ship nationwide via appropriate shipping options.

The Tucker Hill Farm offers
grass-finished lamb and beef and pastured eggs.
Our grass-finished lamb is available as a half or whole lamb in May/June. The lambs are fed fresh grass and
hay only—No corn, commercial feed, hormones or antibiotics.
Our beef and lamb have been tested at Utah State's Skagg’s Nutrition Lab. The Omega 6 to Omega 3 ratio for the beef is 1:1. The ratio for the lamb is ½ :1. Being totally grass fed provides a nutritional edge.
We can ship the beef and lamb but prefer to connect consumers with producers who are close to them.
The eggs are produced year-round by our flock of Rhode Island reds. They receive a feed that we mix here at the farm—No commercial feed, hormones or antibiotics. Brown eggs can be picked up at the farm or delivered locally.
We are pasture-based and manage our animals with the intensive rotation system. We apply no chemicals to our land, just compost, which is applied yearly.
We direct market our products. Place your orders with us, and we arrange for custom processing just the way you want it! We are open for visits. Please call or write first.

From our Walnut Creek
Organic Ranch in South Central Nebraska to your
table, we are committed to producing humanely raised animals
in an environmentally friendly, stress-free atmosphere
that promotes good health and supports a sustainable food
system in the balance of nature. Our family owned ranch
is FVO Farm certified organic and has been chemical
free for thirteen years. We have designed a grazing system
to simulate conditions during the time of the buffalo that
roamed here for centuries.
Our grass-fed Angus beef have been genetically
selected for their natural health, excellent mothering ability, and the
tenderness of their meat. They are born, raised and finished on tall,
lush, native Nebraska prairie grasses, and natural occurring herbs and
legumes. They are free to socialize and enjoy our country fresh air and
mineral-rich, deep well water.
Our CLA and omega-3 rich USDA inspected, hormone
and antibiotic free, grass-fed Angus beef will be ready by the whole,
halves, split halves, or special packs for shipment throughout the USA
this fall. We are happy to help you design a variety of cuts for your
specifications. Order early to assure availability. Please visit our
website for more information.
