Back To Earth Farm is a family farm located along the Uwharrie River on 110 acres, 8 miles southwest of Asheboro in the North Carolina Piedmont area. Named for our pilgrimage back to simple clean living on beautiful land, growing health-generating foods. We spend our days happily caring for the land and animals. We also host events for people interested in their health, food systems, weddings, or just a farm visit to reconnect with nature.
We are passionate about regenerative farming to renew the health of the land and connecting communities with a healthy food source. We offer 100% pasture raised gourmet grass fed beef. It is available in a variety of cuts by the pound or we offer ¼, ½, and whole animals if you prefer buying in bulk. You can order online at our website, and take delivery at a pick-up location or by appointment only at the farm.
We raise our animals in concert with nature. At present our cattle are predominately Red Devon with some Black Angus and Red Angus mixed in. The Red Devon breed was selected because they finish well on grass. They are grown completely from birth on our farm, and spend their lives on pasture enjoying sunshine and fresh air. We never use pesticides, herbicides, growth hormones, or antibiotics in our production of beef. Although we are not certified organic, we are very careful to use organic practices in raising our livestock. We never feed our cattle grain or corn or GMO crops of any kind – they are 100% grass-fed.
As consumers as well as farmers, we believe there is no better way to have confidence in where your food comes from than to know your farmer. We appreciate you supporting local farmers and choosing a healthy food source!

Haw River Ranch is a diversified, thriving polyculture where animals are treated with reverence and grace, earthworms are cherished, and all critters eat a species-appropriate diet. We offer eggs, pork, lamb, beef, turkey and chicken.
Our pastured eggs and broilers are from chickens fed a locally milled and organic ration, and our birds are moved to fresh pasture daily where they eat a full complement of bugs and fresh forages.
Our poultry and pig rations contain a diversity of proteins (including flax and field peas) in order to improve the taste and nutritional profile of our products and reduce our reliance on soy. The soy in our rations are different from conventional feedstuffs in that it's derived from whole, roasted organic soybeans instead of soybean meal, an industrial waste product (processed with hexane) customarily fed to livestock.
The hens follow our cows and sheep in a rotation that takes into account the need of the grass to regenerate in order to provide the best nutrition for all the animals and to allow the soil to capture the carbon from the atmosphere. We raise our dairy calves on mama cows, with all the milk they can drink and the normalcy of running in a mixed-aged herd. We do this to ensure the best and brightest dairy herd for the future, and in order to provide an outstanding life to even the young males, which later become our signature ambrosia beef. Our cows and sheep are 100 percent grass-fed.
Our commitment to whole food means that we are also diligent about the ingredients in our value-added products. That means our sausages are not only free from MSG directly, but also are free of “spice extractives” and other fractionated ingredients that often contain undisclosed sources of free glutamates. Our bacon is cured the old-fashioned way, using just salt (no nitrates) and molasses, and our sausages are free from all forms of sugar (e.g. dextrose). We began as a homestead to feed our family, and we serious about what it means to say, “this is food.”

Iles Cattle Farm is a family farm located in Littleton, NC. We offer grass-fed beef, pasture raised pork, and free-range chicken eggs.
Our beef cattle are 100% grass-fed, raised on 100+ acres of pasture with rotational grazing year round. Our cattle are not given any grain, hormones, or antibiotics. We believe in cows eating grass, as they are evolved to do, which allows the beef to be healthier, more natural, and more tasty. Our pigs are raised in the pastures where they can forage as they were meant to do and also given grain that we grind ourselves. The eggs are from our Rhode Island Red hens and are hand picked daily. The chickens have a home that they have access to come and go as they please and we move it from pasture to pasture to make sure they are always receiving the best nutrients, from the pastures.
Beef, pork, and eggs can be purchased on the farm or arrange for delivery if near Roanoke Rapids or Littleton. The meat is in a vacuum sealed packaged and frozen by a USDA inspected facility. Beef and pork can be purchased by the cut, quarter, half, or whole carcass. Please visit our website or find us on facebook.
We strive to raise stress free healthy animals to produce high quality products.

Kuska Wiñasun Homestead is located on 16 acres in Stokes County, North Carolina. We raise delicious, pasture-raised, non-GMO Heritage Turkeys and Pekin Ducks. We also produce pasture-raised, non-GMO Duck Eggs.
We take extra care to raise and harvest all of our animals humanely. When they’re not eating wild native plants, grass, bugs, and other small creatures, our animal clan is fed sprouted grains and non-GMO feed from local farmers. We do not raise any of our animals with antibiotics or hormones (ever!) and all of our animals live their lives on pasture. Our Heritage Turkeys and Layer Ducks have free range of our entire property.
"Kuska Wiñasun" means "Let's Grow Together" in Quechua, and that is exactly our philosophy when it comes to providing nutritious, healthy products for you and your family. We raise our birds from infancy through the day of their processing, and we complete all meat processing ourselves. We believe very strongly in this accountability, and in the seasons of our animals' life cycle.
We also believe very strongly in running a sustainable homestead and business and want you to now that none of the bird you purchase is wasted. While you purchase the meat, we use all of the remaining parts and nothing is discarded.
We also believe in nature and sustainability education, and we have various outlets for sharing our homestead life with the public: our blog, our Farm to Your School Program, and our Kids Wondering educational videos. In addition to raising poultry, we raise gourmet mushrooms and other tasty vegetables.
We currently sell our products at The Corner Farmer's Market in Greensboro, NC and deliver our products to customers at various NC Triad and Southern VA locations.

The Sanders Farm is located in the foothills of Clinch Mountain in upper east Tennessee, close to neighboring Kentucky, Virginia and North Carolina. We have tended a small beef cow/calf herd at our family farm since 1979. We have kept our pasture and hayfields herbicide and pesticide-free for those 35 years. We use no antibiotics, pesticides or growth stimulants of any kind on any animal to be sold on Eatwild. Flies are kept under control with a walk-through fly trap and dustings of DE.
The calves I am selling eat only our own pasture and hay and their mother's milk. They free-range with their mothers and the rest of the closed herd until the day they are processed.
I prefer to sell my calves whole or by the half in the late Spring or in the Fall. Hanging weight is around 300 pounds (give or take 50 pounds) and take-home meat averages 200 pounds. I deliver your calf to a family-owned and operated butcher in Bulls Gap, TN and you pick up your frozen (vacuum-packed in plastic) meat there. You decide how long you want your meat aged and how you want it cut and packaged.
My price, as of the summer of 2014, is $3.50 per pound of hanging weight and the butcher charges $.50 per pound based on hanging weight. However, due to the rising prices in the livestock market and of all consumer products and labor, my price as well as the butcher's fee will most likely have to go up before long.
We would rather sell our beef calves to individuals who want untainted beef than into the feedlot industry where they live a little longer but in an unnatural and highly stressful way.

Winn Family Farms: "Sheep
+ Seed + Sunshine = Grassfed Lamb"
Farming in America since 1626, Winn Family Farms
is entering its twelfth generation of operation. Two of our three farms
are recognized as Virginia Century Farms. Dedicated grassfarmers, the
Winn Family produces a flock of hair sheep solely on pastures and hay
produced without pesticides. Our animals receive no antibiotics or growth-promoting
hormones, and we do not feed any animal by-products, grain or other supplements,
except for a mineral blend specially formulated for sheep.
Lamb from hair sheep, especially when raised
totally on a diet of forages, is a mild and tender addition to the family
Utilizing USDA-inspected harvest and packaging, and
NCDA-licensed refrigerated transport capacity, the Winn Family can bring
the safest possible locally-produced lamb directly to you or your neighborhood
butcher. Our flock is large enough and has aseasonal breeding capability,
so we can meet demand for lamb cuts, whole lamb, and live lambs throughout
the entire year.
A reasonably good selection of cuts is kept on-farm
for consumers' immediate needs, and live lambs may be bought any day
by appointment. We request a ten-day advance order for whole carcass
or locker lambs cut to your special order. This allows for the preferred
dry-aging, butchering, and freezing in vacuum-sealed packaging. We can
accommodate special religious needs at harvest.
We select our Katahdin X Dorper ewes for ability
to thrive and produce well-muscled lambs on forages alone. Our Dorper
rams throw lambs that supply excellent carcass traits for meat.
All of the animals are fenced out of riparian areas
to preserve soil and water quality. They receive free choice mineral
and fresh wellwater in unlimited quantity. The flock is protected by
perimeter fencing and Maremma livestock guardian dogs.
As we approach the beginning of our fifth century
in American agriculture, the Winn Family seeks to bond with consumers
who want to know the men and women who grow their food. As with all that
we do, we sell our lamb with a full satisfaction guarantee.
When you choose how to spend your food dollars, we
hope that you will select Winn Family Farms as one of your favorites.

Yesterways Farm is a second generation farm producing pastured chickens, eggs, pork, and beef. In days of yesteryear, farm and garden were the results of a tried and proven way of life. We have chosen a name for our operation that we feel reflects our effort in taking the best of those methods and way of life combined with responsible animal and land management to provide our customers with quality and wholesome products!
We practice pasture rotation which means we move the cattle regularly to fresh pasture. This is good for the pasture and for the cattle. They have access to clean water and free choice organic minerals. The cattle are free of antibiotics, hormones and other drugs. We use organic and unaltered soil amendments on our pastures. No chemical fertilizers, pesticides, or herbicides are used on the land.
The pigs are on pasture and woodland, spending their days rooting and feeding on plants and roots. They are fed a custom made feed to ensure they have a balanced ration. They are in a low stress environment that affords them exercise, clean water, and feed ration to produce quality pork.
Broiler chickens are raised in open-bottom pens and moved daily onto fresh grass. They are fed a custom made feed to ensure a quality ration. In addition to broilers in the fall, we offer roasters for those folks that prefer roasters over turkeys for the holidays. The goal weight is between
10 and 12 pounds.
The products are available at the Yesterways Farm market on the farm. Call or email for availability and other information.
