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.

DS Family Farm, located just west of Lincoln, Nebraska, raises healthy, pasture-grazed beef, lamb, pigs and poultry (chickens) for your family.

AGA logo100% Grassfed, 100% Grass-Finished, American Grassfed® Certified (AGA), “pasture-grazed beef”—no grains and no GMO forages. Our free-range beef herd is never confined to a feedlot. Cattle spend their entire lives on tallgrass prairie and woodland pastures. Beef harvested from our tallgrass native prairies has been tested and displays an omega 6 to omega 3 ratio of approximately 2:1 or less. Our hair sheep flock is integrated with our beef herd.

Herd movement mimics nature’s process of soil and prairie regeneration (regenerative agriculture). Cattle and sheep always have access to fresh grass in a continuous planned motion across our pastures. Fresh pasture results in healthy animals and allows us to raise animals without antibiotics or vaccines. We do not treat our animals with supplemental hormones or any kind of pour-on pesticides. No broadcast chemical-based fertilizers, pesticides, or herbicides are used on our pastures.

Pastured pigs and poultry are fed locally sourced, non-GMO grains without soy and corn. Pigs are rotated through pasture and chickens are moved through our pasture using Salatin-style shelters. You simply must try our NO-SOY, NO-CORN pastured poultry and pork.

Our animals are harvested from actively growing native prairies and processed locally. E-mail or call for specialty products and availability of custom order meat for your freezer.

Delivered to your home in the Lincoln – Seward Nebraska area. Products are also available on the Nebraska Food Coop (online farmers market) or for pick up at the farm.

Healthy soils and healthy prairies result in healthy animals for you, your family, and our community. Let us know about your need for local clean food.

Visit us online through our website/blog, Facebook, or Instagram. You will get a feel for our farm, animals, and production methods. Contact us for a farm visit to see the animals in motion!

L & L Jacobsen Farm is located in Hamilton County, Nebraska. We raise beef on our quality soils and abundant underground water, which allows us to maintain forage quality and performance during dry periods. We use a blend of cool season grasses and legumes on our pastures. We do not use implants or other artificial hormones, do not use antibiotics on our grass finished animals, and do not feed grain or grain by-products nor animal by-products.

We are not certified organic, however we have not used commercial fertilizers for 2 years on our grass finishing pasture, and do not use herbicides on our pastures. We also are in the commercial hay business, which gives us a consistent source of quality alfalfa and other hays. We do not grow GMO alfalfa or feed GMOs.

Our beef is available year around but we would need up to 8 weeks to accommodate special cutting instructions. It is available by the individual cut, or by quarters, half or whole beef. Our beef is processed in a USDA inspected plant and is vacuum packed for improved shelf life.

We can ship via UPS. We also sell through The Nebraska Food Coop and at the Village Pointe Mall Farmers Market in Omaha NE. It can also be picked up at our farm.

Nebraska Natural Meats is a cooperative of eight farmers from northeast Nebraska who work together to provide a year-round supply of hormone-free, naturally-fed beef, chicken, duck, pork, and buffalo.

Our beef and buffalo meats are naturally lean because the animals are raised on a high-protein grass diet, and they get plenty of exercise while grazing. Some of the cattle are finished on a small amount of grain and all the buffalo are raised on grass only. You can request grass-only beef if that is your preference. Meat from animals raised on organically certified pasture is also available.

Buffalo (bison), beef and pork are available year round. Lamb and poultry are sold in season only. The beef and pork are available in whole, half or split half carcasses. Once your order is placed, the animal will be delivered to an agreed upon processing facility and your meat will be cut and wrapped to your specifications. All of the meat is handled in accordance with state and federal regulations. Prices are competitive with grocery store prices.

Nebraska Natural Meats, Betty Henzler, Route 1, Box 180, Pierce NE 68767. (402) 329-4277.


Oak View Park — Naturally Grass Fed and Grass Fattened Red Angus Beef. Oak View Beef is all natural, grass fed and grass fattened beef. We administer no hormones, feed no antibiotics or animal by-products.

We sell beef by the quarter, half, whole carcass, or cut and wrapped in a USDA inspected locker. Arrangements can be made for local delivery of the meat. If you're located in the vicinity of northeast Nebraska we will also deliver a fattened beef to a locker of your choosing for processing. We strongly believe in eating local and do not ship across country. We sell hamburger retail off the ranch.

Oak View Park is located on the eastern edge of the Nebraska Sandhills north of Orchard, NE. Our small ranch is entirely grass, sprinkled with cedar trees and oak covered creek bottoms. We move the cattle daily, weekly or monthly depending upon the range management goals. Fresh water is always available so the cattle can be healthy in a low-stress environment.

No synthetic insecticides, pesticides, fungicides or herbicides are applied anywhere on our place. We use organic and conventional fertilizers. Conventional fertilizers speed up rehabilitation of the land. Fertility is gradually being restored to soil that was mined out by conventional farming in the early 1900s. Our goal is to be naturally sustainable, eventually transforming the ranch to an organic enterprise.

Paradise Prairie is a small family farm located a few short miles west of Lincoln, NE in Lancaster County.

Beef is not available at this time, but we still have berries:

Aronia Berries – Having an interest in healthy, healing foods, we planted 400 aronia bushes in 2006. Un-irrigated, but untreated as well, we have an established "orchard" of berries. The aronia berries are available frozen, as liquid concentrate and in blends of organic tea. Please check our facebook page for tea selections. Aronia Berry Harvest is usually from late August to mid-September. You can come and pick your own during harvest if you schedule a time. Contact us for current pricing.

Because of our small operation, products vary in availability. Please call or email for pricing. Pickup of products is available in Lincoln, Nebraska. We can ship tea.

The Perfect "10" Buffalo Ranch has 5,000 acres of certified organic prairie grasses sustaining a herd of 800 grass-finished bison. The ranch is large enough to allow the bison to roam at will on native prairie grasses, and the herd size is sufficient to recreate the natural social order of the animals. The end result is a low stress, healthy environment similar to the open plains of hundreds of years ago.

The Hutchinsons offer their "Tatonka Gourmet Bison" in quarters, halves, and whole animals. Individual cuts, 20# packages, and summer sausage are also available. The meat can be shipped UPS anywhere in the United States. New: bison jerky in five different varieties is now available for sale as well!

The meat is sold in Lincoln, Nebraska at the Ideal Grocery, Aikin's Health Food Store, and Open Harvest. (The meat is distributed to other retail stores throughout the area by Pegler-Sysco Distributors.)

Prairie Opal Ranch started small with raising cattle for grass-fed and finished beef. We have grown, and we are now providing a variety of farm fresh meats for us and our customers. We currently raise cattle, breeding/meat pigs and breeding/meat goats, chicken, turkey, and eggs (duck and chicken). Bulk and retail packages available. All products are non-soy and non-GMO, and ruminants are grass fed, and grass finished. USDA inspected.

COMING SOON – Pastured lamb!

A little about us: We knew from the start that we wanted to be different than most, so we started brainstorming and setting our mindsets to becoming a ranch that would stand out and be distinct. We have made all farming and ranching decisions based on regenerative agriculture and sustainability.

Currently, we manage 100+ head of cattle that cross-graze approximately 2000+ acres of grassland pastures. We practice regenerative farming and ranching for grass-eating animals. We want to mimic how animals lived in the wild before industrialized ranching took hold. We aim to build microbial activity, carbon retention and water infiltration in our soil. We practice sustainability by cross fencing our pastures and rotational grazing. We are building wildlife friendly habitats, and bringing in beneficial insects, plants, and different animal species.

We love knowing where our food has come from and how our animals are treated and raised. We take pride in knowing our animals are well cared for and happy. Loved animals equal happy customers.

The future is bright here at Prairie Opal Ranch and we hope you will join us on our journey. We look forward to sharing our fresh products with you. Have a question? Call or email us.

Seifer Farms All Natural Pasture Poultry don’t do drugs. If you’re hankerin’ for delicious, farm fresh fried chicken just like Grandma used to make, you’ve got to start with the best chicken available. The best chicken available is a Seifer Farms All Natural Pasture Raised chicken.

Seifer chickens are fed the finest, most nutritionally complete food we can get. This diet, coupled with fresh air, sunshine and free range exercise (there are no fences around these chickens, they are truly free range) is an essential part of raising our healthy chickens. All this clean living pays off in better flavor and food value.

The chickens are processed on the farm in a USDA Inspected Custom Exempt facility and can be picked up the day of butchering or fresh frozen for pickup at a later date.

Seifer Farms has 3 delivery routes in Southwest, and Western Nebraska. We also sell at the local farmers market in North Platte, NE starting in July, every Saturday from 8 AM till Noon.

The chickens are marketed whole, cutup, whole breasts, leg quarters, thighs, wings, and giblet packages.

You may order these chickens by calling Irene Seifer at (308) 386-2390.

Straight Arrow Bison Ranch of Broken Bow, NE is located in the heart of the state's grasslands. We have been raising and marketing bison meat since 1995.

In 1995 when we started raising bison we followed the conventional pattern of feeding grain to finish the bison. After reading the information on www.eatwild.com and other sources about the benefits of total grass-feeding, we began marketing a few bison which were 100% grass-finished. After receiving favorable responses from our customers, we converted to 100% grass-feeding for all of them. AGA-logo-bison

Our animals do not receive any vaccinations, hormones, animal by-products, or antibiotics. We add apple cider vinegar to their water supply to keep them healthy and have had no need for other treatments since we started that. We believe in feeding the microbes in the soil to produce healthy animals which will nourish healthy people.

The animals are field-harvested to prevent stress prior to slaughter. They are shot and bled in the pasture, then dressed out in a state-inspected on-farm facility. The hanging quarters are transported by refrigerated truck to a USDA facility for packaging. The meat is sold by individual packages (steaks, roasts, stew meat, hamburger, summer sausage, hot dogs, jerky) or in bundles of various size.

We make monthly deliveries to Grand Island, Kearney, North Platte and McCook as well as having the meat available at our ranch. The meat is also available from Lone Tree Foods in the Lincoln/Omaha area and at Wildflour Grocer in O’Neill, NE. We can also ship by UPS.

We have freeze-dried raw organ meat pieces for dogs or cats; all the nutrition of raw with the convenience of dry food. We are also experimenting with freeze-dried bone broth.

Bleached skulls, tanned hides and a few other items such as vests and purses from hides are also available.

Straight Arrow Bison Ranch, Marty and Karen Bredthauer, 79330 Sumner Road, Broken Bow, NE 68822. (308) 872-3066. Texts may be sent to (308) 870-4045 or (308) 870-3537.

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.

Tuuli Farm is nestled in the Loess Hills of western Iowa, about halfway between Sioux City and Omaha.—Listen! A bobwhite quail announces himself as I set fence for the next grazing paddock in the folds of the hills. Caring for my Romney- and Corriedale-cross sheep links me to our living earth, and these relationships flow through the yarn, grass-fed meat, and lambskins we create. These are celebrations of our connections and an invitation to deepen them.

Grassfed lamb is available each fall by the half or whole. The lamb meat is cut to your specification and typically ready in mid-November. Contact me for this year’s details!

The lambs graze alongside their mothers for the whole summer. In winter and times of drought, I feed the flock grass hay and alfalfa. They always have access to free-choice minerals and kelp. For insights into the flock and farm, follow along on Instagram.

You can pick up your order at the locker (about 30 minutes northeast of downtown Omaha). Local delivery may be possible. Delivery may also be possible to Ames/central Iowa, and enroute between here and there.

Reserve your whole or half lamb order on my website (https://www.tuulifarm.com/product/grassfed-lamb-meat-deposit). Contact me if you prefer to send your deposit by mail.
