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.

Bear Butte Gardens is a USDA organic certified, small family farm owned and usda_organic_logooperated by Michelle and Rick Grosek. Our goal is to provide the freshest, most nutritious farm products to our local customers.  

Our poultry (chickens and turkeys) are all USDA certified organic and raised in movable poultry tractors and coops on our organic pastures. We also raise certified organic vegetables which are a regular part of the poultry’s diet.

Our beef and lamb are grass-fed, grass-finished on all certified organic pastures and hay and receive no grain, hormones, or antibiotics.  

We believe in slow, leisurely growth of all of our meat product animals.  

We process our own poultry on-site for whole, packaged broilers and Thanksgiving turkeys. We take our lambs and steers to either Sturgis Meat or Tri-County Locker (both within 20 miles) for processing. We generally have beef and lamb cuts/bundles on hand for sale or customers can place deposits on whole beef as well as quarters and halves and whole and half lambs for the next butchering cycle.

Customers can pick up their meat products at Bear Butte Gardens by appointment or delivery in the northern Black Hills area can be arranged.  

We welcome questions regarding how we raise all of our animals at Bear Butte Gardens and also encourage you to check out our website for more information.

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
·  Shanks
·  Spare Ribs
·  Shoulder Chop
·  Ground Lamb

We do ship our fresh lamb to your house.

Knutson Farm raises 100% grass-fed registered Black Angus. Our herd is exclusively grass-fed from conception to finish. We take extreme pride in the fact we use no GMOs, no antibiotics, no added growth hormones and no chemical fertilizers on our pastures and hay crop. We believe in giving the animals what they were naturally made to consume.

Our grass-fed beef has very desirable marbling qualities. One of the keys to our quality of beef is that we have performance genetics that finish and allow for processing around 18–20 months of age ensuring tenderness and flavor.

Our farm is located 1-hour north of Sioux Falls, SD. Give us a call to learn more about our operation and passion for quality grass-fed beef or to schedule a tour of our farm. Our website has pricing and package options. We deliver locally and will ship USPS.

Prairie Rose Organic Farm is a certified organic family farm in north central North Dakota located near the rolling Turtle Mountains. We raise Aberdeen Angus grassfed beef on prime pasture during grazing season and premium hay in the winter months.

We are certified organically through Nature's International Certification Service of Viroqua, WI which means all organic pasture, hay, supplements (such as minerals and kelp) and natural health needs are used. If health concerns require antibiotics, the animal is identified with a red ear tag and is not considered organic.

We meet the requirements set forth by AGA but are not certified by them. We have been certified by GAP (Global Animal Protection) for humane treatment of animals. 

All our beef is processed at a USDA federally inspected processing plant and we sell by the whole, side, or quarter of beef. We also sell by the individual cut. Grassfed cuts will be available after December 15, 2011 and bulk orders maybe placed any time. Pickup on the farm is by appointment and we deliver up to 100 miles @$.55/mile.

Rosebud Beef Ranch, a small family-owned ranch in south central South Dakota, can provide you with tender, healthily grass-fed beef in split half's, half's, and wholes. Our local locker, which meets state and federal regulations, can process and ship your meat to most places in the US. We are considering providing individual cuts of meat should sufficient interest develop.

Our management program starts by selecting cattle that are genetically capable of producing tender, tasty beef on grass. We use Lowline bulls (www.usa-lowline.org) on selected Angus/cross cows as the basis of our program. Lowline cattle, developed in Australia and served in some of their finest restaurants, are genetically tender due to their smaller size and shorter muscle fibers. Our Lowline/cross cattle are 20–30% smaller than our Angus cows, which means smaller meat cuts and a lower initial cost for you when purchasing a half or whole beef.

All of our grass-fed animals are raised strictly on our native and tame grass pastures and because of our SD winters, they are supplemented with our green alfalfa hay. Our understanding is that green grass and/or green hay are essential to producing the highest amounts of omega 3 and conjugated linoleic acid (CLA) in the grass-fed meat.

Our land is devoted to producing feed for our beef cattle. We became convinced of the health benefits of grass-fed beef in 2001, which is when we started our grass-fed program. Because of our tenderness and other criteria, the number of grass-fed animals we offer for sale are few but will increase over time.

Thankful Harvest is a grass-based, organic farm applying organic management for the benefit of the consumer, the environment, the animals and the farm. If you grew your own food, we believe you would do it like we do. We supply 100% grass-finished beef; 100% grass-finished lamb; organic, pastured, free-range poultry (chicken and turkey); and organic, non-soy farmstead eggs.

We feed our crops minerals based on detailed soil testing so that the crops are able to put more nutrition into what the animals and the consumers eat. If the minerals are not in the soil, they cannot make it to the table. We feed our chickens organic flax which is shown to increase beneficial fatty acids in the eggs. 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.

Wild Idea Buffalo Company was started by owner, rancher, author Dan O'Brien. Wild Idea Buffalo Co. was conceived by Dan's environmental concerns and prairie restoration passions. By using the native specie "Buffalo" as a tool in those endeavors, not only are the eco-systems improving, but we are also able to produce the healthiest red meat available today. The buffalo are raised on two ranches, which are located on the prairie in the shadow of the Black Hills of South Dakota.

Our animals roam in large pastures and are 100% grass fed. They are never subjected to antibiotics, growth hormones, steroids or confinement. In addition to that, we harvest the animals humanely in the field under state inspection.

Wild Idea Buffalo Meat is lower in calories, cholesterol and fat then any other red meat or chicken available. Although we are a small company, we do supply like minded health food markets and restaurants that support sustainable agriculture such as Staple & Spice Health Food Store in South Dakota, Harraseeket Inn, Freeport ME; Heatland Cafe, Chicago IL; Vincent's, Phoenix AZ; and The Gilbert House, Gilbert AZ.

Wild Idea Buffalo meat offers a variety of cuts. Our product is frozen and shipped directly all over the country, via UPS or Fed-Ex. It is available by calling us directly or through our website. Please visit our website for more information. We look forward to hearing from you.
