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.

Butterfly Acres Cattle offers grass-fed, grass-finished
Highland beef. Our beef is raised exclusively on pasture and forage,
and is given no grain, no animal by-products, no antibiotics. Our
pasture is cared for through good grazing practices, without the use
of chemical fertilizers, herbicides, pesticides, or fungicides.
Located in northeast Nebraska, our small farm provides grass
and hay, lots of trees, and a spring-fed creek, all of which contribute
to a naturally low-stress environment for our animals. Our beef
is raised right here from birth to market, gently and humanely.
Highland beef is well-marbled and tender, with complex
flavor. It has been published that Highland beef is lower
in fat and cholesterol, and higher in protein and iron, compared
to other beef. And of course, grass-fed beef confers many health benefits,
including increased amounts of omega-3 fatty acids and
We sell whole beef, halves, or quarters. We can deliver a finished
beef to a locker of your choosing for processing. We are very supportive
of local eating, and therefore do not ship our beef. Our beef is
available July to October. For more information, please visit our

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.
Look for us at the Niwot, Colorado Farmers Market
every other Sunday starting July 1st.

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.

Beef is available by the pound or by the full quarter or half. You can pre-order with a down payment or call to see if we have any in the freezer ready for sale.

The Perfect "10"
Buffalo Ranch has 5,000 acres of certified organic
