Ararat Farm is a family farm located in the mountains of Lee County, Virginia and dedicated to raising the healthiest, best-tasting grass-fed beef, woodland pastured pork, grass-finished bison, GMO- and soy-free chicken you can find! We practice holistic management so we can better steward all life on our farm, from the microbes under the soil to the animals eating the grass.

Our cattle and bison are intensively rotated through the pastures to ensure they always have access to premium grass and forbs and to allow plenty of regrowth time for the grass.

Our pigs are rotated through a combination of pasture and woods to allow them to forage to the fullness of the ability that God created them with.

Our broiler chickens are rotated daily through our fields to provide them with a fresh salad bar; they are supplemented with a GMO- and soy-free feed.

We have been proudly providing hormone- and antibiotic-free meats to customers for 10 years now. We sell the beef in bulk (quarter, halves, and whole) two times a year (spring and fall). We sell the pork by halves and whole in the summer (to take advantage of the grasses) and the winter (to take advantage of the fall acorn crop). We offer select cuts of beef, bison and whole chickens directly off our website. We use a local processor to butcher the meat, so it is frozen hard, labeled, and vacuum-packed when you get it.

We welcome our customers to come visit the farm and see how their food is raised. Please contact us to get more information about ordering or about our farm.

Lone Oak Farm is unlike traditional cattle farms in that Pat Hankins has a tremendous passion for the “process” of farming. With more than 20 years of farming experience on very large farms, he decided to take a different approach.

Pat's vision for Lone Oak Farm is one of purism. He is raising 100% grass fed Tennessee beef in a strict organic (not certified) environment. His cattle are inoculated for normal bovine maladies, but NO antibiotics are used. He NEVER uses hormone supplements, NOR do his animals receive animal by-product feed. NO chemical insecticides or chemical worming medicines are used.

Depending on the season, Pat has a variety of cuts of meat available. Because Lone Oak Farm is smaller in scale than most farms, we do not ship our beef. We feel that shipping all around the country we would be destroying the very environment that we are trying to preserve. We make local deliveries or you may pick up directly from the butcher.

Pat Hankins is passionate about sharing the environmental and health benefits of raising and consuming grass-fed beef. To learn more, visit our website.

Rolling Hills Farm is dedicated to make sure our processes are natural and sustainable. We do not feed our animals antibiotics or use any growth hormones. Our animals enjoy the sunshine and fresh air, they have fresh natural spring water to drink and fresh pastures to roam.

We currently offer beef by the side, split side, or sampler package. The beef is vacuum-sealed and frozen at our local USDA inspected processor. Your meat can be picked up at the farm. We also have a monthly meat and eggs CSA; local pickup locations are listed on our website.

Just like our grandparents, we raise our animals in a humane method that allows them to enjoy being exactly what they are. If God put them on the earth to graze in tall fresh grass, they will graze in tall fresh grass. If they were meant to dig up roots and tubers and enjoy acorns and chestnuts, that is the environment we try to provide. They may enjoy dust baths, eating bugs and fresh shoots of grass. You will be confident of the wisdom of this approach once you try our fresh pastured eggs or beef.

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 over 40 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 diatomaceous earth.

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 my 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 for a whole beef is around 300 pounds (give or take 50 pounds) and take-home meat averages 200 pounds. I deliver your calf to a state-inspected butcher near Rogersville, TN and you pick up your frozen (vacuum-packed in plastic) meat there. You decide which cuts you want using a cut-list I will mail you. All the soup/stock bones and organs from your beef are also available to you.

My price, as of the spring of 2020, is $4.50 per pound of hanging weight and the butcher charges $.50 per pound based on hanging weight.

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.

Shady Grove Farm is located in rural east TN at the edge of the Cumberland Plateau west of Knoxville. We are a small family farm with 80 acres of pasture and woods. We also manage two adjacent parcels for grazing. We offer grass-fed beef, grass-fed lamb, pastured poultry, and free-range eggs.

We began farming with the intent to raise our own foods products to know first hand the origin and health of our meats. We enjoyed the food and farming so much that we began offering our meats to family and then friends. Since then our customer base has continued to grow by word of mouth until this year when we expanded through advertising. We only sell what we ourselves would eat.

Our animals are moved twice daily to new pasture using management intensive grazing techniques.These techniques allow more evenly distributed fertilization, long rest times before re-grazing, and help in the healing of the land. Healthy land produces healthy food which in turns produces healthy people.

Feeds for our animals consist of grasses, hay, and minerals for the cattle and sheep. The poultry receive only natural grain based feeds along with what nature provides in the way of grasses/greens, seeds, and bugs.

Tennessee Grass Fed is the name we use for the locally grown grass-fed meats produced on the Baggett Family Farm which is located in the Sango community of Clarksville/ Montgomery County, TN. Our family has owned the land since 1837. We produce 100% grass-fed beef as well as free-range chickens and pastured pork, all without hormones or antibiotics.

All meats are processed under USDA Inspection. Our beef is dry aged to intensify its natural flavors. When the taste of beef produced with our select native grasses and clovers is then further enhanced by dry-aging, the eating experience created becomes memorable, regardless of the cut being served. All animals are allowed to graze/roam without close confinement. No cages or crates are ever used.

All our products are available through our website and can be picked up at the farm or delivered to our storage freezers located at the Farmers Co-op on Wilma Rudolph Boulevard in Clarksville or the Pleasant View Mill in Pleasant View. We also sell at three farmers markets: Downtown Clarksville, Murfreesboro, and Nashville, and offer Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) memberships with monthly delivery of either beef alone or an assortment of our meats.

We are located 4 miles off I-24 at Exit 19 (Maxey Road); seven miles past the WalMart on Madison Street when driving from Clarksville.

Tennessee Valley Farms is nestled in the foothills of the Smoky Mountains in the Tennessee Valley. Its beautiful pastures have been home to beef cattle for over 150 years. Our pure-bred Black Angus cattle are derived from Knoxville's own Strong Stock Foundation herd, started in 1942. They are well acclimated to local grasses and climate. We are USDA-approved to claim that our herd is 100% Grass Fed, Raised Entirely on Open Pasture, Humanely Raised, and given no Antibiotics or added Hormones.

Our mission is to provide you the highest quality 100% grass fed beef. Because our cattle are raised and pastured locally, you always know where your beef comes from.

Our beef is hand-cut in a USDA facility and dry-aged for 14 days to increase tenderness and improve flavor and texture. It's available in individual cuts, each in its own vacuumed sealed package, or in halves or quarters.

For more information, or to place an order, just e-mail or call.
