Evermore Farm is a small, family-owned and operated livestock and produce farm. We are located in Westminster, MD with easy access from Baltimore, MD; Washington, DC; Frederick, MD; and south-central Pennsylvania. Although we are not certified organic, we run our farm in a sustainable manner. We support local food systems, better stewardship of our land, and raising animals with respect. We offer seasonal shares of our produce, meats (beef, pork, lamb), poultry (chickens) and eggs.

We raise fork-tender Dexter/Belted Galloway beef cattle, wonderfully mild tasting Katahdin lambs, and flavorful heritage Berkshire hogs. We have fresh eggs from Rhode Island Reds and produce free-range broilers (chickens) March-November. We promote an intelligent husbandry that supports a more sustainable farming and food system. Our lambs and beef are grass-fed and all our animals are raised without added hormones or antibiotics.

We follow natural sustainable farming practices, including rotational grazing. Grazing on open pasture helps with the general health of the animals: they get exercise, absorb sunshine, and breathe fresh air. They seem happier that way, and we are, too.

All of our meat is USDA inspected for quality. You have several options when purchasing our meats and poultry for your freezer—at our farm store, on-line ordering, delivery available. We offer whole, half and quarter steers, whole and half hogs, and whole lambs. Multi-Season CSA meat, poultry and egg shares available. Check our website for price and availability.

John and Ginger have made lots of great friends working in agriculture and as producers. Evermore Farm is their ardent effort to “walk the talk” about the viability of diversified, sustainable small farms. However, both agree that their best “crop” is their children, Susan and Andrew. Both are now married with wonderful partners and have children of their own. Family is our greatest joy and serves as “True North” on the farmer’s compass.

Please call or email with any questions.

Evermore Farm, Ginger Myers, 150 Rockland Road, Westminster MD 21158. (443) 398-6548.

Hollin Farms is a three-generation family farm in Fauquier County, Virginia, about 45 minutes from the Washington DC/ Virginia beltway.

Our "Natural Angus Baby Beef" comes from yearling steers and bulls that are about 800 pounds as compared to industrial feedlot steers which weigh about 1200 pounds. Angus is the name of the breed—a black English breed renowned for its beef quality.

"Natural Beef" is from animals that have received no antibiotics in their feed and have no growth implants. These yearling beefs are slaughtered at 800–900 pounds, which is 300–400 pounds less than industrially raised cattle. Because they are younger, the beef is generally more tender and leaner.

Price includes slaughter and vacuum/freeze packing. Sold in quarter, side, or whole units only. Customer picks up at Gore Custom Meats in Stephens City, Virginia.

Hollin Farm, Tom Davenport, 11324 Pearlstone Lane, Delaplane VA 20144. (540) 592-3701.

Johnsville Meadows Farm is a 140-acre all-grass farm about an hour from Washington, DC and Baltimore and 20 minutes northwest of Frederick, Maryland. We are the third generation to manage the farm, which has been in the family since 1938. We have been producing premium quality grass fed beef since 1998 and grass fed lamb since 2018.

This produces healthy nutritious meadows which produce healthy nutritious grass fed meats. We care about how our animals are raised and the quality of the meat they provide. Our animals are 100% pasture raised – spending their entire life on grass.

Our grass fed beef and lamb is:

  • Naturally fattened, and grown on a succulent "garden" of grasses, legumes, and forbes

Kinloch Farm, family owned since 1960, represents generations of organic practices and shared values in protected open space, land and wildlife conservation, and regenerative farming. We embrace flavor, texture, and fat and are throwing common misconceptions of grassfed beef out the window.

AnimalWelfareApprovedLogo
CertifiedGrassfedAGWLogo

Our beef is Animal Welfare Approved and Certified Grassfed by A Greener World. As part of our commitment to address climate change and heal the planet, Kinloch Farm is proud to partner with Land to Market, the leader in regenerative agriculture and the world’s first outcomes-based regenerative sourcing solution. Regenerative agriculture is a nature-based approach that goes far beyond sustainability to continuously improve the entire ecosystem—soil, water, air, and animals.

Through our genetic work, we have bred a line of cattle that finishes well, has intramuscular fat, a fat cap that will allow our carcasses to properly dry age, and provides an eating experience that you will remember. Our Aberdeen Angus are bred to thrive on Virginia’s perennial forages and we incorporate additional forage species into our pastures through strategic overseeding. We utilize Adaptive Multi Paddock Grazing in a Regenerative Design. We focus on whole systems health, and promote natural ecological cycles across our landscape, relying on ecological indicators to determine the outcomes of our management.

We also operate a Certified Naturally Grown Apiary on the farm.

We sell our 100% Grassfed and Grass Finished Beef, Certified Naturally Grown “Perfectly Raw” Honey, and a large selection of curated goods from our friends and neighbors at our farm store in The Plains.

Longview Farm is a diverse, regenerative farm, 18 miles down the Potomac south from Washington DC. We raise our cows, chickens, and pigs humanely and do not feed them hormones, antibiotics, growth stimulants nor animal-by-products. We follow natural practices—no pesticides, no herbicides, no chemicals—growing heirloom tomatoes, salad greens, and flowers. We take seriously our mission to protect open space and to raise delicious and healthy food the natural, sustainable way.

Grass-fed/finished Angus Beef:
Our cattle are born and bred on Longview Farm and pastured for life. We move them daily to fresh pasture except when they are fed hay in a large paddock during the winter months to prevent pugging of the pastures. They have free-choice access to sixteen individual minerals. No antibiotics, no growth hormones. The meat is vacuum packed at a USDA inspected processor in October, after at least 3 months of grazing green grass. We sell halves and wholes in October and individual cuts year-round.

Acorn-finished Berkshire Pork:
Best-tasting Berkshire pigs are rotated through large paddocks in the woods every two weeks where they can root for grubs, sleep, and wallow, as pigs like to do. They are fed a pig feed of barley/wheat that is custom mixed at an Amish feed mill. They are finished on acorns. In November and December, fresh halves and wholes are available for chefs, and individuals can buy halves and wholes custom cut as well. Vacuum packed frozen individual cuts are available year-round.

Chickens and Eggs:
Our chickens are moved in bottomless pens (chicken tractors) daily on fresh pasture. They are fed a natural, non-GMO custom feed mixed at an Amish feed mill. No chemicals. During freezing temperatures, they are moved to a straw bale house and large pen for protection from predators.
