Here at A•Y• Raam Farms, LLC we
are working to establish the finest all natural, chemical free products,
including grass fed beef, grain fed pork, free-range eggs,
pasture raised chicken and turkey, along
with a wide variety of produce. All
are grown or raised on our ranch in Kingsbury.
We started raising everything for our selves, because
we were tried of all the chemicals, hormones and, who knows what else,
is in the commercially grown meat, eggs, and produce we buy at the
local supermarket. We had people asking about our products and discovered
that others were just as tired of the stuff you get at the supermarket
as we were. So we decided to expand and start selling to friends,
neighbors, a few health food stores and restaurants and also at local
We are still growing and expanding, this year we
put up a 30’x150’ greenhouse, so we can grown out-of-season
produce. In the future we plan to put up a commercial kitchen
to make jellies, jams, salsas and other produces. We are also
considering a goat dairy, and catering company. Will probably
expand into fruits, on a small scale, as well. I’m not
sure when all this will take place due to limited funds and labor,
but It is our goal to have a wide variety of products for our family
and the public.
We do accept volunteer work, it’s not easy
but it’s rewarding and educational. We are continually
learning new things and experimenting with different methods growing
and raising everything, as I said before “we want the finest

Adams Blackland Prairie Farm is a family
farm established in 1986 on the rich, deep blacklands of Northeast
Texas, about 65 miles east of Dallas. We raise beef on polyculture
pastures consisting of native and introduced annual and perennial grasses
and legumes providing year-round forage. The unique blackland soil
provides for the special quality and full flavor of our beef. We believe
healthy soil is the basis of animal and plant health, and ultimately,
human health. All animals in our grazing program are raised on grass
Key factors we use in the production of well marbled,
grass fattened beef are high quality forage, stress reducing techniques
and animal maturity. It is our goal to be humane, responsible, environmentally
sustainable farmers. This is the beef we raise for our family—we
love it and you will, too.
Beef is available throughout the year, pre-ordered,
as whole, halves, and split halves. Also available are fresh eggs and raw
vetch honey from our farm.

Always Grass-Fed Beef, LLC. is located
on our family farm 45 miles east of Austin, TX.
Our mission is to produce the best tasting, most
tender, most nutritious dry aged beef available, through carefully
selected genetics, pampered handling, and the feeding of animals from
birth to market on nutrient dense grasses and legumes.
Using NO pesticides or herbicides on our forages
results in a flourishing diversity of soil microbes which improve nutrient
cycling and deliver more trace minerals through the food chain to you.
Research indicates that grass finished meat has superior ratios of Omega
3 to Omega 6 fatty acids, linked to reduced risk of heart disease, and
superior levels of CLA, linked to reduced cancer risk.
Animal health and well being are further enhanced
through soil and forage testing, organic amendments, and daily moving
animals to fresh, clean paddocks.
Every animal marketed is free of hormones, steroids,
chemical wormers and antibiotics.
We sell whole, halves, or quarters. See our website
pricing page for more details.
Make an appointment for a farm tour. You will become
a believer in the meat we’ve raised to feed our grandchildren.

American Criollo Beef Alliance presents
grass-fed, pasture raised Criollo beef. Criollo beef is exceptionally
tender and very lean. Criollo has been proven in DNA testing to rival
Kobe beef (from Wagyu cattle) for tenderness and Angus beef for quality.
ACBA has each animal DNA tested for tenderness and meat quality (marbling)
before entering the Certified Criollo Beef Program and sold to the
consumer, thus ensuring consistent quality.
Criollo cattle were brought to the “New World” from
the high desert plains of Andalusia in Southern Spain on Columbus’s
second voyage. Superbly adapted for survival in the hostile environments
of the North American southwest, these hardy cattle thrive on available
forage. They are renowned for their hardiness, fertility, gentle nature
and longevity. They are easy on the land, tending to improve a pasture,
rather than destroy it. Criollo cattle naturally self-rotate through
a pasture, utilizing every square foot of acreage, rather than concentrating
on any one area.
Our cattle spend their entire lives roaming spacious
pastures in Central Texas. With their foraging efficiency, they get fat
easily on natural grasses with no supplementation, only needing high
quality hay in the winter months. ACBA uses no hormones or antibiotics.
Ranch visits are welcome.

Ann and Weldon Warren's Holy Cow Beef, Pasture-Raised & Pasture-Finished
Dry-Aged Beef. We operate an Angus cow/calf operation that produces
the highest quality “home-grown, pasture-raised & pasture-finished” beef available
to your dinner table.
We are located some 70 miles west of Ft. Worth. Our
goal is to continue as a sustainable steward of God’s natural resources.
We raise our animals from birth to finishing for retail consumption by
family, friends and savvy consumers.
We harvest each animal when it develops adequate
back fat and intramuscular marbling; this is normally achieved before
30 months of age. We are continually improving our genetics to produce
bigger rib eyes, better marbling, and natural tasting beef. Our management
style avoids grain, corn feeding, stress, and the feedlot environment.
We employ rotational pasture grazing on native Texas grasses, winter
annuals and select introduced grasses. Fortunately, our animals benefit
from the distinctive flavoring provided by the high mineral content of
the rocky soils of the Palo Pinto hill country of Young County, Texas.
We use NO growth hormones, antibiotics or pesticides. These animals are “finished” in
the most natural and low stress conditions possible.
Our beef is Dry Aged (hanging in a freezer before
processing) for 14–21 days to provide a hearty, brown-roasted beefy
flavor, then vacuum packed for optimal storage and “wet aging” in
your own fridge by you if desired. Savor the healthier flavor and enjoy
the wholesome and nutritional advantages of Holy Cow Beef’s naturally
We sell by the cut with a 10-pound minimum order
when delivered within 30 miles of Graham and a 20-pound order (multiple
10-pound group orders work well) within 75 miles of Graham, TX. Shipping

Aquilla Hill Angus Farm is a working cattle
ranch located in Covington, Texas about 40 minutes south of Fort Worth.
We specialize in producing registered Angus cattle on natural grasslands
without using growth hormones, antibiotics, pesticides or commercially
produced fertilizers and feeds. We offer home delivery of our product
to the DFW metroplex area and south along I–35 towards Austin.
We breed Angus for its superior marbling characteristics,
then raise these animals on grass pastures to insure a heart-healthy
product chalked full of CLA, Omega-3-Fatty Acids, Vitamin E, HDL and
Beta-Carotene. Our natural approach to raising cattle consists of open
range feeding on Bermuda and wild rye grasses, all natural fertilizers
such as compost teas, humate and molasses applications as well as humane
treatment of our cattle to lower stress and stress-related diseases.
This method of cattle farming is safer for the environment, animals and
our customers. We complete the beef experience by dry aging our carcasses
21 days and delivering whole or half sides to those who want a healthy
cut of beef on hand when they need it.

Bard Farms raises Lowline Angus and Lowline Angus / Angus cross grass-fed, grass finished non-chemical beef. Lowline beef is already one of the best tasting breeds available with real grass genes. We are now starting to cross some of our Red Lowlines with Red Wagyu cattle from Japan. Wagyu is the producer of the fabulous tasting Kobe beef sold in high end restaurants and the premium grocery stores. It is considered to be gourmet meat. Breeding stock and meat are available. Meat is usually slaughtered in late spring but burger and some steaks are available year around.
We also have a limited amount of beef jerky that is safe for diabetics, no sugar / high fructose corn syrup, no added MSG or other chemicals.
Animals are grass-fed—no chemicals, no vaccines, or drugs. Occasionally animals will get cuts, abrasion, or animal pink eye infections. In these cases we use filtered water infused with ozone, nature’s natural healer.
We have also added Kunekune pigs that maybe the only pig that can be fed grass and finished on grass. We have two small boars for sale and will have meat available in the future. Kunekune’s are also producers of gourmet tasting meat.
Sometimes we have free range eggs available.
We have also added the equipment to grow hydroponic fodder grass inside our barn. With this we can control the nutrition of our animals and avoid huge hay bills when we have droughts. Custom made fodder growing units will be available in the future for sale in small sizes for chickens or larger units for cattle, pigs, sheep, or goats. During the next 6 months we will add aquaponic units for raising produce and tilapia.

Betsy Ross Grass-fed Beef, located 1-hour
northeast of Austin in Granger, uses no hormones, no antibiotics, and
no grain feed. Ever. We select from the best performing breeds, manage
them daily from birth to market, and test regularly for the presence
of CLA's and Omega-3's. And we have them!
What makes Betsy Ross Beef unique is our focus
on maintaining balance in our soil biology and growing a healthy variety
of high-quality grasses and forage for our beeves. We start right at
the soil, strategically applying compost teas (www.compostteatexas.com)
to restore the natural balance of microbes, bacteria, protozoa, fungi,
nematodes, and other biological components to our soil. This ensures
that our forages are of the highest quality, delivering all the nutrients
to the beeves, and ultimately on to you, our customer. Remember, healthy
soil = healthy forage = healthy livestock = healthy people!
Betsy Ross Beef is guaranteed to be tasty and tender
and is supplied year-round, state-inspected, and frozen fresh. We deliver
weekly to the Austin and Georgetown areas, sell over the Internet to
any location in-state, and are carried by several retailer locations
in the area. (See Texas–Beyond the
Farm for details.) Try us - it is an experience you won't want to

Big Oaks Ranch runs a small
herd (13) of Black Brangus and Black Angus mama cows. The bull is a
registered Black Angus bull. Calves are born in the late Fall,
weaned in the Summer and finished on grass for slaughter at 21–26 months
Our target goal is to produce and market INTEGRITY BEEF, grass-fed for
healthy, tender, tasty meat that is free of supplemental hormones, antibiotics,
or any grain or grain products whatsoever. This requires a good team
and close on site management of genetics, health, quality grasses and
legumes. We are achieving this goal through the organic planning; genetic
testing, selective breeding, and grass farming.
INTEGRITY BEEF means
organically raised grass-fed beef that is consigned, slaughtered
and custom packaged. The beef is slaughtered at Mineola Meat Packers,
a USDA inspected facility. They deliver the halves to Texas Meat
Packers of Henderson TX (formerly Gentry Farms Processing.) We
counsel and discuss the cut order with the customer, so we are familiar
with the customer’s
family, eating and cooking habits. After 21+ days of aging, the
owner-producer, Danny Burrows, observes, directs, and helps Texas Meat
Packers cut and package each calf. The beef is vacuum packaged
in clear packages and after 3 days the customer picks up their order
of frozen beef.
The Big Oaks Ranch Goat herd has grown to
over 75 head. They eat weeds, briars, and brush; they keep the trees
pruned, and provide organic fertilizer everywhere they graze. Customers
came to buy the goats for breeding
and meat. This led to the target goal of Grass Fed Boer/Nubian Cross
Goats. The cross breeding was accomplished through using registered Boer
and Nubian bucks. They graze free-range and are ready for sale
by private treaty purchase or consignment by the head or by the pound.
Big Oaks Ranch began raising chickens in the fall of 2001. Soon we were
receiving calls requesting "yard eggs," laid by free-range/pastured
hens that graze the pastures and fields freely. The eggs are of
superior quality and free from added hormones, feed fillers, antibiotics,
herbicides and pesticides. The hens roost and lay the eggs in mobile
coops with laying boxes that are cleaned every day. The chicken litter
is recycled through the ranch compost pile. The coops are moved every
2–3 days. This maintains a clean and healthy environment for the
animals and is a natural and organic means of fertilization.

Coyote Creek Farm - Certified USDA Organic -
offers grassfed beef, organic eggs, and Coyote Creek
Organic Feed Mill is offering organic poultry feed.
We start with our soil. We are stewards of 90 acres
of rolling black prairie land which is certified USDA Organic. To our
piece of earth we spray high quality aereted compost tea 4–6 times
per year to keep a healthy herd of micro-organisims growing to cycle
the precious nutrients into our grasses. Then we feed the biology in
the soil with hydrolyzed fish, molasses and humic acid twice each year.
From that point on Mother Nature takes over.
We harvest our grass with South Poll cattle. See
our website for more information on this breed. They are high in conjugated
lineolic acids (CLA) and Omega-3, both of which are known to help prevent
cancer and heart disease.
We sell our limited production of beef by subscription.
You may purchase a half or whole beef. Some customers join with neighbors
to buy their beef. We deliver the steer to the processing plant where
you pick it up after it has been fully dry aged, cut and wrapped in cryovac
Our cattle are never fed any hormones, antibiotics
or steroids. We practice humane treatment of all our animals.
We now have Coyote Creek Organic Feed Mill. We will
be offering organic poultry feeds to the public in January of 2007. We
will custom grind bulk orders, and we will also place 50 lb babs of our
organic poultry feeds in your local feed store or farm co-op. You will
find our organic eggs at Whole Foods Market in April of 2007.
We are proud of our family farm and dedicated to
developing the highest quality meats and eggs. We raise "solar-powered"
animals as opposed to feedlot petroleum based animals which take about
30 barrels of petroleum products to get to your table, and often travel
over 2,000 miles to get there. We are serious about getting food to tables
within 100 miles of our farm.

Darby Farms is an East Texas based beef and dairy farm
located near Gilmer Texas, which is approximately 100 miles east of
Dallas. Cody and Rachelle Darby, along with girls Brynn and Josey,
run approximately 200 beef cows that are all bred to registered Black
Angus bulls. The beef cow herd is rotated on Bermuda/Bahai grass-based
pastures. Their high quality diet results in an incredibly healthy
and nutritious beef.
We are committed to raising our animals humanely
and naturally. We never implant our cattle with hormones and none of
the animals are ever fed animal by-products or given antibiotics. This
is our promise to you and we feel you should have a choice.
Our beef is processed and vacuum packed at a local
USDA inspected facility and the resulting beef is all natural, minimally
processed with no artificial ingredients. We are proud of our natural
beef and are honored to be able to offer it to our customers.
The beef can be purchased by the whole, half or quarter.
We also have some smaller packages available for those who have limited
freezer space. Shipping or delivery is available.

Dr. Baker’s Grassfed Beef is raised and distributed at Baker Ranch in Belton, Texas. Belton is located in Central Texas about 60 miles north of Austin in the Belton-Temple-Killeen Metroplex. A sustainable prairie was developed on 450 acres by reseeding native grasses, using nutrient-rich biologic amendments rather than commercial fertilizers and managed by rotational grazing. No GMO products, herbicides or pesticides are used—ever. Certified Black Angus cattle now peacefully graze on a variety of grasses and legumes and are entirely raised and finished on prairie grasses. No hormones or antibiotics or grain finishing is used—ever. Our cattle never experience stockyards or inhumane management.
The goals of Baker Ranch include good land stewardship, environmental protection and animal husbandry. These goals work together and result in improved soil, better grasses, healthier cattle and healthy quality meat loaded with Omega-3 fatty acids, CLA, and anti-oxidants. The end result is healthy, tasty, tender beef.
Baker Ranch is a member of Animal Welfare Approved and Go Texan. An AWA certified butcher minimizes stress on the cattle and uses minimal processing to provide lean meat. To minimize costs, Dr. Baker’s Grassfed Beef is not sold in stores or markets but is distributed locally within a 40-mile radius of the Ranch. Distribution by mail is not available. A variety of preferred cuts or scheduled packages of quarter or half cows can be arranged for convenient delivery. Orders are best conducted by email or telephone to meet individual preferences.

Drop Horn Cattle Company is owned and operated
by the Homeyer family. We are located 60 miles south of San Antonio.
We raise and buy commercial cattle for breeding and for selling grass
We have been practicing Holistic management since
1982, the practice that uses pasture rotation, monitoring, tools such
as fire, herd impact, and just working with nature. We also have had
the opportunity to learn first hand from Bud Williams the low stress
handling techniques of moving cattle. Our feeders are fed only on grasses
and forages and are vaccinated only for black leg and brucellosis. We
also feed a mixture of mineral, salt and diatomaceous earth (for de-worming).
If we have to treat a feeder for an illness, they are taken from the
feeder herd. We feed our animals until around 22-24 months of age.
We sell whole, halves, and quarters and will deliver
within a 60 mile radius of Karnes City.
We believe we have been given the talents from God
to raise animals that are chemical free, pasture fed, and unstressed.
We invite visitors to the ranch.

Farm To Market Beef are born and raised
in south Texas and our headquarters about 40 miles south of San Antonio
where they are grazed on south Texas native and improved grasses.
Farm To Market Beef was founded because of our desire
to spend more time with our family while doing something we are passionate
about and believe in: sustainable locally grown food and high quality beef.
Our cattle are raised in a sustainable manner without
the use of any hormones, antibiotics or grain. Our cattle are processed
at a locally owned Texas Department of Agriculture inspected facility.
We harvest our cattle at a fairly young age so a side of grass fed beef yields
around 130 pounds of boneless retail cuts, and a whole carcass usually
yields about 260 pounds. Please keep in mind that these weights are averages
and will vary, as each animal is different.
Our price for a side (1/2) of Grass Fed Beef
Our price for a whole carcass of Grass Fed Beef is: $5.75/lb
We also can provide wholesale ground beef
for restaurants and catering. Volume discounts do
apply. Please contact us for details.
This price includes free delivery
to San Antonio, Austin, Corpus Christi and Houston areas!
Orders can be placed by phone or e-mail.

Fredericksburg Grassfed Beef Ranch, located in the beautiful Texas Hill Country near Fredericksburg, is family owned and operated.
Our cattle are primarily Hereford and Angus cross. We strive to produce a black calf. We have learned that an important factor in producing tender meat is having gentle, docile cows. As we select replacement heifers, disposition is as important as confirmation. Working with gentle stock is safer for the livestock and easier for us.
We operate on organic principles, but have not yet achieved organic certification. Our pastures have not seen herbicides or fertilizers for over 20 years. Herd health is maintained by frequent pasture rotation. We do not use any antibiotics or hormones. We do use preventative vaccines for our calves at 30 to 60 days of age.
This herd has been wholly owned by our family. Many of the cows have lineage back to the first cows brought to the ranch by our parents over 50 years ago, and the lineage actually begins with our grandfather's herd, which was established in the early 1900s. We know where these cows have been all their lives: they are Texan born and raised.
Calves are available for slaughter beginning in May. This is dependent upon the weather. We do not supplement our slaughters with grain; they are raised and finished in the same native pastures in which they were born. This means that the animals feed on a broad variety of plants, which in turn produces a healthier animal and a more flavorful meat. In 2004 we began offering 24-month-old calves for slaughter. These animals have a higher degree of marbling than calves in the 14 to 18 month old range.
We sell by appointment only at this time. Due to the continuing drought in Texas we have only very limited quantity of meat available.
We have USDA labeling and are able to offer packages with assorted cuts of meat.

Georgia’s Texas GrassFed Beef and Natural
Meats is located on a farm and ranch just minutes north of downtown
Houston. We are a sustainable operation with areas of the farm
Certified Organic by the Texas Department of Agriculture.
We own a meat processing facility in Bellville, Texas
allowing us to control the quality of meat from birth to your table.
Several other GrassFed Beef operations utilize our processing plant to
process their beef. In addition to our GrassFed Beef operation
we offer GrassFed Lamb, GrassFed Goat, Natural Pork,
Pastured Poultry, and Certified Organic Turkey.
We practice paddock rotation, grazing our animals
on a particular pasture for no more than three days, then allow the pasture
to recover for a minimum of three days before the next herd is rotated
onto the pasture. Our pastureland is organically fertilized once a year
providing our herd a luscious pastureland all year long. We never bring
any cattle feedstock onto the farm, instead we bale our own hay providing
us with adequate supply of feed should our pasturelands not be yielding
enough grass during the winter months or draught.
In 1992, Georgia Bost and her husband Richard Bost,
along with a few of their friends, founded Texans for Urban Sustainability,
a regional organization for organic technology for sustainability (TexUS
ROOTS) in order to share their knowledge with farmers, ranchers, landscapers,
nurseries, and landscape architects, and those who then created Green

Glory Farms converted to the “simple” way
of raising cattle and selling beef in the late 1990’s.
We started “finishing” our animals on grass only and not
subjecting them to man made chemicals by way of their feed.
We let our pastures lay dormant for three years without
any manmade fertilizers of insecticides added. In 2002, we moved locations,
however, we continued the same philosophy. Our new pastures are ready
and we are back in the grass finished business.
will continue to furnish angus/angus cross steers, but we have changed
direction a little. We are seeing the importance of smaller serving sizes
and the need to produce smaller “finished” animals. We have
entered into the mini Hereford business. These are smaller animals that
reflect the size of animals my dad and grandfather raised.
Our philosophy can be summed up very easily. We
believe the old ways are better. Animals need to be raised naturally;
they need to go a minimum of 6 months without medication before being
sold for beef; they need to be “finished”; they need to
have clean water and lots of grass; and they need to reflect and participate
in the slow pace simple life we enjoy here at Glory Farms.

Glueck Farms raises predominately Black
Angus calves that are low-stress weaned and then placed on good pasture.
Cattle are always handled slowly and led by voice command to prevent
stress. Less stress means better producing animals.
Pastures of bermuda and native grasses are rotated
frequently to provide good grazing. Fields are planted in hybrid sudan,
redtop cane, wheat, oats, peanuts, or turnips to provide a variety of
supplemental grazing. Sometimes fields are allowed to grow up in native
crabgrass which makes excellent grazing for calves. When grazing is not
good, calves are fed alfalfa hay and natural processed cottonseed pellets
Meat is processed in an inspected plant and then
frozen. Grass-fed beef is available by the side or whole.

Goodgrass Lamb offers lamb and mutton raised
exclusively on forage and available only in season. Lambs are born
in November and raised over winter on clovers, brassicas and hay, fattened
in the spring on cool-season grasses and clovers, and usually ready
for harvest starting in May and available until July or early August.
Healthy ewes that fail to raise a lamb are taken
out in March for mutton; there are never very many of these. We feed
no supplements or grain, we do not medicate or implant our sheep. We
do not use herbicides or pesticides. We use some conventional phosphorous
fertilizer each year and are not organic.
Whole lamb or mutton are available for custom slaughter.
The rest of the crop is processed and available in retail cuts at local
farmers markets or at the kitchen door. Call us.

Gramen Farm (Latin for grass) has been family
owned and operated since 2006. We are a Texas Grade A dairy farm
specializing in raw (live) nubian goat and jersey
cow milk and all dairy
products including cheeses, yogurt and kefir. There are no chemicals
used at our farm (other than sterilizing) or fed to, or used on our animals
including antibiotics, vaccines, dewormers and fly control. By keeping
our animals' ph as alkaline as possible—feeding them what they naturally
would eat in the wild—the animals can successfully fight off any infections,
We basically feed and keep our animals as
if they are wild. A wild animal is much stronger than one kept in a zoo
and therefore the items produced from those animals are more likely to
give you the benefit you are looking for.
We are not certified organic yet, but all feed supplementation on the
farm is organic.
We have created a one-stop buying experience
through our retail farm store. We provide a wide range of products and
we are always creating more from raw or "live" milk and dairy
products, organic fed pastured broiler chickens and eggs,
100% grass fed beef by the cut, quarter, half, or whole cow, detox
teas and juices, and homeopathic skin care. The products are made and
sold at our farm store by my wife Ellie. We
will ship any products except our raw/live dairy products.
We consider ourselves more of a health farm
than your typical dairy farm because we believe someday we will all be
going to a farm to purchase pure foods, herbs, and ingredients that will
balance your body's systems in order to eliminate ailments instead of
going to a pharmacy to by drugs. Our farm is located in Tomball/Cypress,
TX, about 30 minutes northwest of Houston, just off Hwy 290.

store is open 8 to 6 Monday thru Friday and Saturdays, 9 to 5. We sell

Grassfed Prime Beef by Ross Land and Cattle.
Family Run Farm Since 1860. Texas Gourmet, Grassfed,
All Natural, Free-Range “Artisan
Prime Beef.” I think that says it all...
At the RLC (Ross Land & Cattle)
we raise our “Artisan
so we can have healthier, better tasting steaks on our table and enjoy
a safer and healthier way to preserve and protect our kids and our land.
And now you can enjoy our family’s years of experience and expertise
in raising grassfed, all natural, free-range “Artisan Prime Beef.”
Our definition of an “Artisan” is one
who creates a masterpiece through passion while remaining in harmony
and balance with Mother Nature. Our beef is
custom bred to consistently bring out incredible flavor in every tender
bite, starting with our “Stillman Prime Tenderloin” (the
best of the best), to our “PapPaw’s Big Porter House,” “The
1860 Bone-in Ribeye,” our very own “Texas T-Bone,” Granny’s “All
Natural Strip Steak,” and the famous RLC Ground Steak and Ground
Chuck Hamburger, which make any cookout special.
Granny Ross has been concerned these days that there
are too many hormones, chemicals, steroids, irradiation and chemical
baths used in processing beef (and other foods). She says “It Just
Right,” and I don’t blame her. So at
the RLC we have set out to keep it natural, just like we've been
doing since 1860. Our RLC "Artisan Prime Beef" has...
No Antibiotics or Chemicals in the feed
No Unnatural feeds
Not Now, Not Ever, Grassfed All Natural Cattle from start to finish
on the RLC, Since 1860!
We offer one of the most unique ways to buy
beef and save money,

HindsFeet Farm is a family farm that we, Richard and Laurie Hinds, began in October 2010 for the pleasure and the learning experience for our 10 newly adopted children, who wanted the experience of living and working on a farm. We raise all our farm animals, several breeds of chickens, Nubian goats, Large Black Hogs, Angus and Jersey cows on grass.
We started off very small and we are still small, but growing month by month in fencing and animals in all the above breeds. We grass feed all our farm animals, including all our chickens. We also feed them several kinds of locally natural grown hay with no chemicals of any kind. We feed our chickens and our hogs garden vegetables, fruits, and clovers as well. Our ponds are fenced off and we water all our animals from water troughs so their water is always clean. All our animals are healthy and happy, never receiving any chemicals, antibiotics, hormones of any kind, but grown naturally on healthy natural pastures, hay, and fresh water, as God intended.
Right now, we offer truly pasture free eggs, poultry (turkey and chicken), every month for customers, and soon we will be offering pork, and beef for sale beginning this winter of 2012-13.
In July 2012 we will be at our Local Sulphur Springs Farmer’s Market on Saturdays, on the Square.

HooFin Wings Ranch is located
in the Texas panhandle near Wichita Falls on the Red River.
We farm wheat and raise purebred Murray Grey cattle. Murray
Grey's are a breed that originated in Australia and are known
for their high meat to bone ratio. This means more of the
animal you buy is meat and not bone. Murray Grey's are a

don't need copious amounts of grain to finish such as the
larger feed lot cows. Our cattle are never put into feed
lots to finish them. They stay on natural pasture grasses
so you get NATURALLY BETTER BEEF.
Our beef animals have NO growth hormones or antibiotics.
They are all pasture raised on native and winter grasses and are usually
harvested in the winter/spring of the year. Our rotational grazing program
assures they are always getting fresh tender grasses. Any of our beef
animals that may need doctoring are taken out of our beef program and
sold in the sale barn or used in our herd. Only hormone and antibiotic-free
animals make it into our beef program. You won't be eating these chemicals
if you buy our animals.
We sell by the quarter, half, and whole animal. Your
beef is vacuum packaged and ready for your freezer. If you are interested
in purchasing purebred registered Murray Grey's, we have those also.

The Lazy A Ranch, certified by the American Grassfed Association and Animal Welfare Approved, is a member of the British White Cattle Association of America, the American Wagyu Association, and the Texas Wagyu Association. Our ranch is certified, which means that our world class standards have been verified by an independent auditor.
One of our herds is the historic British White breed, once reserved for the English royalty and aristocracy, and enclosed in parks. This herd is headed by B&B Ulysses, an American Fullblood bull. We are currently producing beef from this herd, and The Lazy A Ranch website includes a history of this breed.
Another herd is of the world renowned Japanese Red Wagyu breed, headed by JC Red Star 50, a 99.4% purebred bull. American Kobe Beef will be sold beginning in 2016 from this herd.
The ranch follows organic pasture care with compost teas and liquid organic fertilizer from Sustainable Growth Texas, and follows Holistic Management International principles, including rotational grazing. We do not use pesticides, herbicides, routine antibiotics or growth hormones.
Our animals are tame, moved gently, and live on grassy pasture their entire lives. Most were born on the ranch. In addition to pasture grass our cows eat baled hay, alfalfa, cottonseed meal, and molasses. They are given a free-choice supplement with vitamins, minerals, kelp, and diatomaceous earth. They also get a sea salt block with minerals. We do not use pesticides, herbicides, routine antibiotics, or growth hormones.
The finishing process is begun at the ranch for 60–90 days with unlimited supplementary rations on pasture. Typically, our beef will be 28–30 months old and about 1200 pounds for a heavier, more marbled and flavorful beef according to the protocol of Artisan French labeled beef. They will be individually selected as they reach full growth and desired heaviness and processed by LaGrange Smokehouse, which is also Animal Welfare Approved. Beef will be dry aged for 21 days and shrink wrapped for your freezer.
The Lazy A Ranch is located about one hour from Houston between Bellville and Hempstead in Austin county. We also have a location in Cat Spring. Beef may be picked up at the ranch, in the Texas Medical Center Houston, or may be shipped frozen overnight in Texas. Our price for fall of 2013 is $4 per pound, hanging weight. Tours are available by appointment. Quarters’ inventory and prices are listed on the website. Wholesale meat is also available.

Mustang Creek Farm is the name
of our place in North-East Texas. We grow a variety of plants
which nourish our cattle, sheep and goats.
With rotational grazing as a pasture management tool
it’s the animals who take care of the pastures. Naturally, we have
to decide which one of the over 70 paddocks needs to be grazed at what
time, for how long and by which species or combination of species. This
gives us good control on our pastures without using pesticides or commercial
At weaning time, the calves, lambs and goat kids
form their own herds which are given first choice when it comes to pasture
selection. That’s the key to good growth, tenderness and marbling
in beef. Knowing that everything on our farm grows from what nature provides,
without the help of the chemical or pharmaceutical industry, gives us
the assurance that the meat from our animals can only be very healthy.
All meat which we sell as “grass-fed” meat,
comes from our animals which were born and raised on our farm.
We do not buy stocker calves or lambs to feed them grass and hay for
a period of time and sell them as grassfeds!

Farms raises Grassfed Beef and Lamb and Pastured
Chicken and Pork.
All our animals spend their lives on pasture. Our
beef and lamb only receive hay and natural minerals as supplements to
their grass-based diet and are never fed grain. In addition to pasture,
our chickens and pigs only receive our own blend of feed and minerals. None
of our animals ever receive antibiotics, artificial hormones or steroids
or animal by-products of any kind. Our animals are humanely raised, and
are never kept penned or in confined, unsanitary conditions.
For our beef, we select only medium-framed British
breeds. The cattle are ultrasounded to determine tenderness before harvesting
to ensure the cuts are of the highest possible quality. Our beef is dry-aged
for 14 to 21 days, producing a tender and richly-flavored meat.
For our lamb program, we raise Katahdins. Katahdins,
a type of “hair sheep,” do not produce wool and since they
don’t produce wool, they lack lanolin glands in their skin, resulting
in a mild, delicately flavored meat which is generally preferred by our

Re-creation Ranch. Our all-natural
lean beef is the product of 20 years of development
by crossing Limousin, a beef bred in Europe for its tenderness,
leanness, and carcass weight, and the Texas Longhorn, which
by natural selection provides excellent maternal instincts
and foraging habits of natural vegetation. This combination
produces a more nutritious, tasty, lean and wholesome beef.
We raise our beef on our rotationally grazed pastures
for their entire life, from birth to processing. While not certified
organic, we raise them in a manner that exceeds organic standards. We
use no growth stimulants, antibiotics or feed supplements. Our animals
are selected for processing as they mature to a preferred age and size.
We sell our beef directly to the consumer, working
from a list of buyers on a first come first served basis. Processing
is done by a local custom processor to our specifications and sold by
the portion of the processed animal, i.e., 1/2,1/4,1/8, etc. Yield is
normally 300 to 350 pounds carcass weight. Example: If a carcass produces
80 pounds of ground beef and customer orders ¼ beef, they receive
20 pounds of ground beef. We
also sell animals live for those who wish to buy and handle processing
Call for pricing due to excessive market changes that impact production of our beef.
We encourage customers to visit our ranch and see
how our animals are raised.

Rockin L Dorpers. We started raising
sheep in northeast Texas about one and a half years ago.
We chose Dorpers because they are hair sheep and shed, therefore
no shearing. They lamb every 8 months, the meat is better
with no strong "lamb taste." Carcass weight is
57– 58% compared to 51% for most other breeds. They
grow very fast.The Dorpers raise good lambs on forage where
most sheep barely exist.
We raise our lambs on grass and sometimes have to
feed a little hay. we supplement with a mineral mix of Sea Salt, Sea
kelp and Diatomaceous earth. We worm with Garlic Barrier. We believe Grass
Fed to be much better than "Organic"
as organic tells you what they don't use, nothing about what they do
We leave the rams in year round so usually have butcher
lambs for sale. We have breeding stock for sale also. Fullblood
rams, percentage & purebred rams. We usually have ewe lambs for
sale, both percentage and purebred. Our ewe lambs are at least 6 months
old and ready to breed. Or possibly bred.
Visit our website or give us a call. We are at Mt
Vernon, on Interstate 30, 100 miles east of Dallas.

Rockin L Lowlines. When I was
diagnosed with CIDP and was not able to work much we
looked for an alternative to our Dorper sheep. We found that for
small acreages the Lowline beef cattle are perfect.
Lowlines require much less work than
the sheep and are very easy to manage. They are
more like pets than cattle, and kids love them. They don't
require a lot of feed and they return much higher profits
than full size cattle or sheep. They are also more ecologically
friendly because they are easier on the pastures than
full size cattle. Lowlines finish well on grass and they
are great for natural, health conscious programs. We sell
our Lowline cross steers for meat.
Do you have a small acreage? Lowlines
qualify you for an agricultural tax exemption if you
only have 3 or 4 acres. This alone will save you enough
to pay for them. Along with feed efficiency and
ease of handling you get the advantages of premium prices.
At the 2006 national lowline sale 54 head, (40
fullbloods and 14 percentage females and 3 percentage
bulls) averaged over $5500 per head! Lowlines are a joy to
work with and very rewarding financially, and the fact
that they are the best beef on the market helps.

Shady Grove Ranch produces the best quality pasture-raised meats and eggs you can find in the East Texas and Shreveport area. Our products include 100% grass-fed beef, soy-free, non-GMO pasture-raised pork, and truly pastured soy-free poultry, including whole chickens, Thanksgiving turkeys, and fresh eggs.
We use old-fashioned breeds that are hardy and produce well on a natural diet. We focus on utilizing rotational management, “buffet-style” mineral supplementation, total avoidance of chemicals and drugs, and fully finishing our animals on appropriate diets. This means that cows only eat grass, and pigs, chickens, and turkeys forage freely and are supplemented with non-genetically-modified, non-soy grains. Our animals never remain on a fixed patch of ground indefinitely—they are moved regularly, according to season and herd size, to ensure good nutrition and avoidance of disease and parasites.
We only process animals that are nice and fat to ensure amazing flavor, excellent tenderness, and plenty of marbling. Our meat is not extremely lean like some grass-based producers. We believe that most of the goodness about grass-fed beef and pastured pork and chicken is in the fat, so we ask our butcher not to trim, and we select animals for slaughter that are in good body condition—not too fat, not too slim. Animal protein with a moderate amount of fat is tastier, more filling, and easier to digest than leaner meat. Our animals are bred for efficient pasture-fattening and they eat diets appropriate to their species The fat on our animals is buttery, flavorful, and rich. It is nothing like greasy, filmy corn-fed beef fat! And you have never tried a real pork chop until you have one from our Large Black pigs. Caution: After tasting Shady Grove Ranch products, you may never be able to eat store-bought meat again!
We sell by-the-cut and in bulk. We welcome visitors to our operation so that you can learn where your food comes from and know how it is really produced. We offer farm tours and encourage you to sign up for our semi-monthly newsletter to receive information (but never spam!) about our specials, practices, events, and more.

grassfed meats in the form of Grainless Red Poll Beef, Salad
Bar St. Croix Hair Sheep, and Grainless Myotonic Goat,

Currently, meat shipping isn’t an option. Animals
are purchased with a purchase deposit fee of $100 for beeves and $50
each for sheep and goats. We then transport the animal to the point of
slaughter. For more information, availability, current pricing, and accepted

Slow Food Farm specializes in producing quality pastured poultry year round, but also offers grass-fed beef, pastured pork and rabbit seasonally. All of our animals are managed in the way best suited to the species and all are treated with compassion, respect and affection. Slow Food Farm is managed in a sustainable way and owners Harry and Jennifer Huf strive to be good stewards of the land their farm calls home.
Fresh and frozen whole chickens are available year round, while beef is offered only twice per year. Currently pork is available about once per season but increased production is in the works. Rabbit meat is available when possible (we're still figuring the girls out). All products are available farm-direct and via delivery in the Austin area; chicken is available weekly at The Mercantile at Dyer Dairy in Georgetown as well as at the Bastrop Farmer's Market. Additional markets are being added as the farm grows.
Slow Food Farm is actively pursuing organic certification but has not obtained it yet. The chickens are fed certified organic grain from the local feed mill; the cows and pigs get organic alfalfa hay, chemical-free grass hay, and are kept on organically managed pastures.
Chickens are processed on-farm, in accordance with our state issued Grant of Exemption, as humanely as possible. Harry and Jennifer take special care to minimize or omit suffering and handle each chicken individually. Beef and pork are processed at the local State Inspected processing facility, which is small and takes individual care of each animal.

Talltex Beef. “Tender and Good for the Heart”TM This is accomplished by two completely different breeds of cattle, with two common traits gentleness and tenderness. The Belgian Blue breed grows at rates higher than cattle treated with growth hormones. They have very low fat levels, yet the meat is very moist and juicy. The Japanese Wagyu, the breed known by the town of Kobe, is very slow growing and has more marbling than any other breed. Yet with all this fat there is very little cholesterol.
We now have four choices in the grass-fed beef you can get. High percent Belgian Blue, Angus/Hereford, High percent Wagyu and Blu-Wagyu. With all the breed combinations, you get “Old West Ranch Flavor”TM.
Buying our meat: At Farmers market we sell individual cuts, the rest of the year we try to stick to halves, quarters, eighths and bulk burger. We are always willing to work with the customer in their needs.
We currently attend the Amarillo Farmers Market on Saturday mornings, and the Borger Farmers Market on Friday mornings from July - September. The Dixon Co-op in Dixon, NM can arrange deliveries a couple of times a year.

Texas Ranch Beef produces grass
fed Longhorn and Longhorn-cross Charolais beef pastured
on its three ranches known as Texas Ranch Life, totaling
4,000 acres of rich pasture country in Austin County.
Our 600 Longhorn cows have exceptional vigor,
good frames, muscle structure, hardiness, and are naturally resistant
to disease and travel exceptionally well—this makes them the best
mama cows for raising calves on grass range conditions without grain-based
supplemental feeds. Texas Longhorn cows crossed with Charolais bulls
produce an extra lean meat with good muscle size showing no fat in the
muscle. We also produce pure Longhorn calves for beef. Our cattle are
high in Omega-3 and CLA and tenderness is good.
All beef is raised from calves born on the ranch
and we certify our meat to be 100% natural grass fed beef free of hormones
and antibiotics. We have been in the cattle ranching business for over
The native grass pastures are managed through rotational
grazing, holistic practices and seasonal use to enhance good grasses
and forage for the cattle. Yearling cattle are grown out to 600–700
pounds on native prairie grass pastures, some of which are overseeded
with rye grass in the winter.
Cattle are raised in large pastures about 400-plus
acres each. They are handled quietly by horseback and in a low stress
manner to avoid sickness and the need for antibiotics and other medicines.
Unstressed cattle on good native grass pastures means beef that is healthy,
hormone and antibiotic free, and in prime condition for harvest.
Texas Ranch Beef is processed and inspected in a
USDA approved facility, vacuum packaged, fresh-frozen and supplied year-round.
We offer a variety of cuts including steaks, ground meat, hamburger in
2-pound packages. We sell over the internet and have a ranch retail store

Vista Knoll Farm is located 50 miles north of Dallas. Started in 1972, the farm's original purpose was to raise Devon beef cattle for breeding stock. Devon cattle are one of the oldest and purest English breeds that prosper on grass. Their docile nature and our low-stress management aid efficient weight gain, plus these Devons have the tenderness and A2 gene.
We focus on healthy nutrition for the cattle, our grasses and our soil using natural fertilizer. They are raised on native and Bermuda grass pastures with NO grain, hormones, steroids or antibiotics. The steers for purchase were born and raised on the farm, roaming the pastures and receiving gentle, low-stress, and kind treatment.
Steers for beef are available by the half or whole and we will deliver them to the processor. The processor we use knows how to age and process grass-finished beef properly. You work directly with the processor to have the beef cut exactly as you wish. If you have not done this before we will work with you, as will the processor, to figure out the best cuts for you.

Texas Criollo Beef above.
Watterson Ranch, certified by both Animal
Welfare Approved and the American Grassfed Association (AGA), raises,
processes and sells USDA inspected, dry aged beef in quarter,
half and whole quantities within Central Texas.
Natural. Local. Grass fed. Sustainable.
These are principles that Watterson Ranch has embodied since the
50s. The 1850s.
As the sixth generation to grow
up on this land raising cattle, we grew up eating beef we had raised,
a luxury then available only to family. Things are done right when
you know your family will put it on their plates.
We produce food that is honest-no shortcuts, fillers or additives.
We never use hormones or antibiotics. Our cattle freely roam and
graze on what God has provided. Fresh grass in the summer,
hay from our own pastures in the winter, free choice natural minerals
and plenty of fresh, clean water. Our cattle are never
penned up in a feedlot or fed grain, but we believe that quality
matters-in the happiness of our animals, in our impact to the land
and the world, and in the food that you consume. It matters.
USDA inspected, great tasting certified grass fed beef from a local,
sustainable and proud Texas ranch, previously available only to our kin. Welcome
to the family.

Wild Type Ranch is a family ranch
located in Milam County Texas. Ralph and Sara, with their
young boys Alex and Eric, raise registered Red Angus and
Black Angus cattle. Our guiding principle is respect for
all life. We believe in working with nature to produce a
high quality, sustainable product. Ten percent of the
net proceeds from our beef sales are donated to local
family and domestic violence assistance programs.
Wild Type Ranch Beef is pasture-raised, natural
beef, from top quality breeding stock. Our beef is raised without
hormones, routine antibiotics or confinement. Our cattle spend their
life eating grass and hay. Each animal is individually managed and treated
humanely and with respect. After harvest, our beef is aged 14-21 days,
vacuum-packaged as individual cuts and frozen. We sell our beef by halves,
quarters, eighths, small packs and individual cuts. Our beef is available
at the Georgetown Farmer’s Markets, and at monthly pickup
points in Cedar Park and North Austin. We do custom pickups by arrangement.
We have a limited supply of 100% grass-fed, organically
raised (not certified) beef available. We also sell (non-organic) pasture-raised
beef that is minimally supplemented with small amount of a grain ration
containing Omega-3 oils.
