Babb Creek Grassfed Red Angus is your small family farm close to Madison, Baraboo and Wisconsin Dells. We offer reasonably priced beef, for local pickup, by the pound hanging weight, in whole, halves, and mixed quarters. We meet organic standards.
Our price for 2013=$3.39/lb. hanging weight, plus butchering fee of about 51 cents per pound for cut wrap and freeze plus a prorated portion of the $90 slaughter fee. Animals are processed locally at Straka Meats in Plain, WI, and dry aged 14–21 days. Pickup is from them, available six days a week.
Our beautiful Red Angus cattle are born here in the fall, nurse on their mommas thru the winter as moms are fed our own stored mixed grass/legume hay. We no longer wean as we let nature take its course. They are on smaller pastures for winter feeding then turned out to green pastures by April and rotationally grazed on 11–15 lush green pastures thru October. Free choice kelp (mineral) and salt. Each pasture has fresh water (they're not allowed in the creek). We fertilize with our own manure and wood ash from the Ukrainian stove that heats our house. We use Natural oil soap for fly/lice control.
Grass-fed beef take longer to 'finish' than corn-fed feedlot beef and are usually ready by the end of their second season on pasture. They are definitely worth the wait as their meat is higher in Omega 3s, Vitamins A, D, E, B-12, folate and carotene. There is no risk of Mad Cow Disease because they are fed no animal by-products. Grass-fed beef also have about 300 times less E. coli bacteria, and because it is not acid resistant due to corn feeding, the bacteria are destroyed more readily in our stomachs, for a cleaner, safer product.
We use no pesticides, antibiotics, growth hormones or vaccines. We feed no corn or grains to finish, instead waiting for the animals to mature and naturally add marbling to their meat, preferring a tender, tasty, well marbled, aged product, to the 18 month old, lean, i.e., tough grass fed standard.

breeds were chosen because they thrive on a grass based diet, are easy
calving, are wonderful mothers and produce lean, flavorful meat. All
breeding, in both herds, takes place naturally, in the pasture.
We have an on-farm store where we sell beef and
bison by the cut, any quantity desired, as well as an assortment of
100% beef and 100% bison sausages. Our sausages are made MSG-free.

our animals get is for training and baiting purposes.

Blackberry Ridge, LLC Eco-Farm & Ranch is
owned and operated by one small family. We started five years
ago to create a Bio-diverse, Biodynamic, Organic, Sustainable,
and Permiculture Eco-system—a self-contained farm where
the animals fertilize the land and the resulting living soil
and grasslands feed the animals.
We have introduced eight different animal species
to roam our land. Many are Heritage or endangered breeds. These include:
100% GrassFed Galloway Cattle and Sheep (fiber, meat, and milk);
Free-Range, Pastured Hogs, Chickens, and Turkeys; Horses;
and Great Pyrenees guard Dogs.
As members of the Cherokee Tribe, we work in Harmony
with the wildlife in our woods to increase wild habitat and bio-diversity.
We have encouraged the re-growth of native vegetation, and will add more
diverse plants each year, creating a permiculture. The animals have opportunity
to eat the foods they would eat in the wild, while finding the most pure,
Certified Organic sources for any feed we must give. We feed NO Grain
to our Beef and Lamb!
NO ANTIBIOTICS, ANTIPARISITES, ADDED HORMONES, PESTICIDES,
HERBICIDES, or ARTIFICIAL FERTILIZERS
Optimum health is achieved by humane treatment (we
don’t ‘cut’ our animals), fresh grass, herbs, sunshine
and air, and a reliance on nature before we intervene. We believe this
creates optimum nourishment in the foods that we nourish ourselves with
and optimum life in the environment we live in.
Galloway beef rated #1 in taste and #2 in tenderness
by UW tests. It is USDA processed and dry aged for 18 days by a small
family butcher, then cut and froze individually. Purchase our meats at

Bull's Ranch, LLC. is a small, husband and wife run farm specializing in Galloway beef cattle. We practice natural, holistic methods for raising our cattle; adhering to 100% grass fed practices. Our cattle receive our own hay grown on our own land which we never use any chemical sprays.
We have a small herd of black and red heritage Galloway cattle with some Angus cross animals. We strive to keep our animals as natural as possible; utilizing only redmond salt, natural kelp, and apple cider vinegar for additives. Our meat animals are not given any inoculations, routine antibiotics or growth hormones; instead letting them grown as nature intended; slowly, on grass pastures utilizing rotational grazing - never in a feed lot.
Galloway cattle originated in the hills of Scotland, a hardy smaller beef breed with a double coat of hair. They have wonderful, naturally lean meat that has exceptional flavor.
We began farming several years ago because we wanted a meat we felt safe to consume ourselves.
We have strong beliefs in caring properly for the animals God put on this earth for us; giving them a comfortable environment to live out their lives in. We practice this humane care for all of our animals.
We currently sell our beef directly from our farm, by the 25-pound variety box which includes steaks, roasts, and ground beef or ground beef by the pound, any amount. Processing is done by a state certified USDA-inspected plant. We, unfortunately, do not ship our beef.
Please visit our web site for more information and prices. Occasionally, we will sell by the whole animal; please inquire for availability.
Please give us a call to try our naturally lean Galloway beef!

of southwestern Wisconsin. Our farm is a family operation
where we all pitch in. Our animals are either free ranged,
day ranged or moved in portable pens. We do not routinely
use antibiotics, hormones or appetite stimulants. We treat
our animals respectfully and humanely.
Cornish Cross Broilers are fast growing
and processed between six and eight weeks. The fast growth makes them
ineligible for the Animal Welfare Approved program so we will discontinue.

eight and ten weeks. They have large breast meat and flavor slightly
superior to Cornish.
Slow-Growth Broilers are processed between
ten and twelve weeks. They forage better, grow slower and have a superior
taste that our grandparents would recognize as chicken.
Pastured Eggs are from pastured hens which
results in a healthier, better tasting egg.
Pastured Heritage Turkeys are available in
November for your Thanksgiving dinner.
Pastured Pork is available as whole, half
or quarter hogs and by the cut.

of duck, goose and lamb is available.

Grassroots Meat, located in River
Falls, WI, just minutes from the Twin Cities Metropolitan
area, offers 100% grass-fed beef and pastured poultry.
Our herd consists of Galloway cattle, a Scottish
breed, ideal for pasture grazing in the cold Wisconsin climate.
Our cattle receive plenty of fresh grass and water, in summer, and
in winter, quality hay that is raised and stored at our farm. Galloway
cattle are not bred to be “oversized;” therefore, they produce
flavorful meat which is healthy with less fat.
We sell our beef in a variety of cuts and quantities
in order to offer our customers a wide selection. Our chickens are allowed
to forage on as much living grasses as they desire. Their diet is supplemented
with grains that are free of artificial hormones and antibiotics. Our
chickens are available in July and August, but we will take pre-orders
in February. They dress out at 3-7 pounds.
For information on ordering our 100% grass-fed beef
and chicken, please call us.

The Grassway Farm is a diversified certified
organic (MOSA) grass-based dairy farm located
between cold, clean Lake Michigan and picturesque Lake
Winnebago. In addition to milking 100 dairy cows, we direct
market bulk chicken, turkey, brown eggs, beef and pork.
All of our animals (beef, pork, chicken and turkey)
are fed certified organic feed.
The farm consists of over 200 acres of fresh green
growing meadow grasses. After each milking our herd of jerseys and Holstein
cows takes a leisurely stroll to a new paddock of fresh grass and spends
the day grazing, ruminating and resting. The cows receive only 2-3
pounds of oats or barley, kelp, naturally mined mineral and sea
salt per day to help them maintain body condition.
On our farm, everyone grazes, so the egg-laying
free-range chickens are allowed to dine on juicy bugs, tender grasses
and a small amount of grain. Our pastured meat birds live in moveable,
open bottom pens out on the same pasture. They are protected from predators,
but can still enjoy the sunshine, bugs and grass. The Jersey steers graze
with the dairy cows to get the very best pasture plus a small amount
of grain. Finally, our "pigerator" pork comes from pigs that
are allowed to do what they truly love to do: root through and compost
the winter bedded pack from the cows.
We would love to hear from you. May you be able
to live close to the land.

We don't have to chase our animals—for the most part they follow
us everywhere they want us to put them. The animals are beautiful to
watch and it's so relaxing to take a walk around the pastures to enjoy
them. Even though initially they come running and set up such a chorus
of bawling that you can't hear, they calm down to eating soon. We also
have seasonally asparagus, rhubarb, ramps (wild leeks), and watercress

there until fall, then some are moved to another field where they are
finished on turnips and local hay. Only the lambs finished without the
turnips qualify for listing on Eatwild as only the turnip greens are
allowable. Our goal is to raise the lambs 100% organic, but we are not

(no more than 1/2 pound of corn a day per lamb when or if it is necessary
to feed corn).

Mountain Lane Farms, Wauzeka,
WI, is nestled in the hills of Crawford County. It is a place
where time stands eternal. Our Angus cattle graze 80 acres
of rolling pasture in the same way they did when my father
purchased the farm back in 1964. This provides our cattle
with a simple diet of sunshine, legumes, grasses and water.
While a simple approach, we believe this is best for the
animal and ultimately in producing the best beef.
As we are a minute operation, we currently do not
possess the means of rendering our product on site and shipping it direct.
Our philosophy is that when you buy from Mountain Lane Farms, you choose
the animal and witness firsthand where it was raised. You have an opportunity
to voice how you would like the beef prepared, etc. If you wish, we can
ship the animal to you. We have tremendous rendering professionals who
can customize your order. If you wish we can even bring your order right
to your door. We value you not only as a customer, but a new friend before,
during and after the sale.
As a small operation, we don't have all the amenities
of other operations. What we have is a food source that has been raised
naturally by good folks who are concerned more about you than your sale.
Give us a call, get directions and come see Mountain Lane Farms. The
cattle will continue to graze, but friendships are precious. Make friends
at Mountain Lane Farms.

We believe in grass based farming because we think it is
best for the people who consume the animals and poultry which
are grown on grass, best for the animals themselves, and
best for the environment.
In rumininating animals, health issues such as acidosis,
liver abscesses, mastitis and parasites are controlled naturally
instead of with antibiotics. The exercise of grazing, fresh
air, sunshine and fresh pastures are the core issues for
good animal health. Rogue proteins which cause mad cow disease
are not found in grasses but in supplements fed to animals
in confinement settings. Sound genetic selection enables
birthing ease, healthy young animals and docility. (Our sheep
and cattle are glad to see us and come when called. Remember
the invitation to come for a visit so you can see this.)
Human beings are the beneficiaries. They eat meat and poultry
from healthy creatures. Grass fed meat is higher in conjugated
linoleic acids and omega 3 acids which are cancer fighters
and weight controllers. Further, there is less total fat
and less saturated fat in grass fed animal products.
The environment benefits. Sequestering of carbon in the soil
occurs, slowing global warming. Reduction of wind and water
erosion occurs. Organic matter increases and nitrate pollution
reduces. Earthworm populations become abundant and soil enzyme
We want to be good stewards of the land and of the animals
on the land, and that means grass farming.
We produce beef, lamb and broilers. Turkey and pork raised
by Amish friends are also available.

Pasture Prime Farm is a small family farm producing Large Black Hog pastured pork. These rare hogs are slow-grown on pastures rich in legumes, timothy grasses, and annual peas and oats. In Winter months they are fed high-quality alfalfa hay. They are fed minimal grain daily to round out their diet.
Our hogs have access to pastures, and sunshine year-round. In winter months the hogs have access to shelters, with deep beds of straw. They are never alone, usually in groups of three to five so they are able to socialize and keep warm in the winter. In the summer, each and every pasture is equipped with shade, and a deep wallow for mud baths! A very low-stress, happy life for our hogs is our ultimate goal.
Our hogs are processed in facilities that specialize in humane handling. Pastured Pork is currently available bi-annually. Meat is dark red, marbled, and very rich in flavor.
We are currently taking deposits for wholes and halves that will be available end of July 2014. Farm visits and tours are welcomed. Please visit our website for more information!

Pinnacle Pastures Farm has been
in the family for 60+ years. Cody oversees daily management
of the farm which is in organic transition. Animals never
receive hormones or sub-therapeutic levels of antibiotics.
Cody has planted clover / grass pastures as well
as pastures especially for hogs—allowing them
to graze fresh greens and root out turnips as nature intended. Hogs are
bred and fed for exceptional meat flavor and high nutrient density. Piglets
are raised on pasture during the summer and in deep straw bedded
huts in our barn during winter. Very little lard comes with our
finished hogs as they get lots of exercise!
Pinnacle Pastures also offers grass fed Angus cross beef and
Katahdin lamb. These lambs are milder in flavor than standard
sheep breeds. Heritage breeds of turkey, geese, ducks, guineas, and chickens reside
with the beef and hogs who offer protection from predators. Great Pyrenees
guardian dogs offer further protections.
It is a privilege to care for livestock and nurture
their instinctive behaviors. Calves, kids, lambs, piglets, chicks, ducklings,
and goslings are raised by their mothers. Beef and hogs available
by whole, half, bundles, and smaller quantities. Nitrate-free bacon is
available. Visitors are always welcome.

practice sustainable and humane animal husbandry. Beyond
Organic, our holistic approach means farming within Nature's
patterns, with Nature's Rhythms. A place where wildlife flourish
alongside rare breeds of livestock, where heirloom gardens
and orchards nourish us even as hedgerows, woodlands, and
prairies provide haven for all manner of life. Our herbal
meadows provide the ideal diet for our livestock while providing
nesting sites, beneficial habitat, and sweet nectar for our
honeybees. Intentionally "human scale,"
we choose to homestead and husband our land in a way that
promotes harmony and synergy.
Our organic, rotationally grazed pastures burst
with an edible riot of colors and flavors: sunny dandelions, sky blue
chicory, lacy yarrow, sweet scented clovers, and tangy sorrel among the
green grasses. Cold-hardy forages like turnips and canola extend the
forage feast into winter. Humane treatment is important to us: our lambs
keep their beautiful long tails they're born with!
Our lamb and beef are raised using
100 percent forages—NO GRAIN EVER! Our pastured poultry and pork are
raised on high quality pasture in addition to certified organic grain.
100% GRASS FED LAMB and BEEF, PASTURED PORK and

At Snyder's Valley View Farm we
raise Belted Galloway beef and Katahdin sheep.
All of our animals are raised on natural pasture
during the growing season, and on hay that we grow ourselves during the
winter months. Our calves and lambs are born on pasture in the spring
and are raised on their mother's milk until they are able to graze our
pasture grasses, legumes and forbs. We use no herbicides or pesticides
on our pastures or hayfields, and practice rotational grazing, which
allows the animals to utilize their natural instincts to migrate and
look for the best food supply.
Our animals receive no growth hormones, no antibiotics
in their feed, and a very minimal amount of grain which is used only
for training purposes.
Both Belted Galloway Cattle and Katahdin Sheep are
known for their ability to produce lean, tender, flavorful meat when
raised in a grass based farming system, producing meats that not only
taste very good, but are good for your health as well.
We sell freezer beef by the quarter and half;
it is available at various times throughout the year. Lamb is
sold by the half or whole from December through April. Our meats are
processed by a local state inspected, family run facility, and can be
cut and wrapped to your specifications.

At Together Farms, we believe in sustainable farming and lovingly caring for all our animals. It seems the more we learn, the more we want to grow our own food. But without you, the customer, our small farm dream could never become a reality.
First, we search for the best-tasting foods we can find - typically means heritage breeds that tend to grow slower than their high-production counterparts where taste and personality are ignored. We raise Tamworth & Large Blacks (swine), Duclair ducks, assorted heritage turkeys, White Park (beef) cattle, Tunis & Leicaster Longwool sheep, and Freedom Ranger meat and other heritage egg chickens.
All of our animals are in managed grazing systems. Things we don’t use on the animals: antibiotics, growth hormones, medicated feed or chemical de-wormers. In our finished products, there are no: nitrates/ites, MSG, preservatives, colorings, etc. Minerals and supplements, you ask? All absolutely natural (e.g., apple cider vinegar) so you know you are getting a nutrient-dense product. If our soils are not healthy, our animals will not be healthy. We are also working towards being totally free from soy-based feeds. [Check out Weston A. Price's Soy Alert page to learn more about soy and why we care.]
We are Certified Naturally Grown and Animal Welfare Approved and we are now out of our 3rd transitional year to be certified organic. We are working toward full certification by the end of 2013. The beef and lamb are 100% grassfed and approved by the American Grassfed Association.
We also offer “S3” Soap - an old-fashioned, cold processed lard soap! We use only all natural ingredients - check out our website or our Etsy page (www.etsy.com/shop/StephsSuperSwineSoaps).
Meat is available in wholes, halves, and CSA shares. Email/call for bundle options, pricing and drop-offs.

Uplands Cheese, Inc. produces
and distributes Pleasant Ridge Reserve, a unique, traditional
style farmstead cheese.
Pleasant Ridge Reserve is an artisan cheese made
from the milk of a single herd of Wisconsin cows fed and managed using
natural "old world" practices. Our cows graze lush pastures
from early spring through fall and we produce cheese only when the cows
are fully on a forage ration of vegetative pasture. Cows are supplemented
with a ground grain mixture comprising 25% of their ration while on pasture.
Pleasant Ridge Reserve is the end product of a process
that is inextricably linked to the seasons and life cycles of our animals,
as well as to the prairie soils and climate of southwest Wisconsin. The
sweet flavors of the pasture grasses, herbs, wildflowers and clovers
is detectable in each morsel of our product. We hope you will try Pleasant
Ridge Reserve and agree with us that producing food slowly, deliberately
and with pride is a value worth preserving in our hurried, industrialized
