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

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

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

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

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

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

At Beahm Family Farm, we strive to be a simple path to healthy meat for your family. Full of Omega-3’s and CLA’s, our rich and flavorful grassfed/grassfinished beef and nitrate- and preservative-free pastured pork are naturally raised in the mountains of Virginia. Our farming family of seven loves interacting with nature and farming in a way that honors the land, improves our health, and helps our neighbors.

In the beautiful mountains of Rappahannock county in Sperryville, VA you can view up close how we care for our animals: no antibiotics, hormones, or pesticides are used. Our cattle thrive off of grass and their meat is leaner and free from harmful chemicals and toxins. Our pigs love rooting in the woods and pasture we provide and eat a natural diet supplemented with some non-GMO grain. We use a local, USDA-inspected butcher and our meat is vacuum sealed and frozen upon pick-up or delivery.

We have simplified the process of getting healthy meat directly into the hands of customers. Our website includes an online order form, a page clarifying our holistic farming practices, a price list, and availability list. You can accomplish your health goals and buy local at the same time. Pick-up is here at our farm, where you can see some of our animals in action and get to know us! We offer delivery to some nearby counties as well. Contact us to see if we can deliver to your area.

There are multiple options for both beef and pork that can meet any family’s needs and help bring healthy meals again to the family table. Half a beef and half a pig shares are the most economical, but we also offer as small as 30-pound shares that can easily fit in most people’s refrigerator freezers.

C&F Farms is a third-generation family farm in Roanoke, VA. We offer grass-fed, grass-finished beef; pastured non-GMO pork; pastured non-GMO chicken; and fresh, free-range eggs.

Our cows spend their entire lives grazing our diverse forage pastures with access to high-quality supplements such as sea salt and Nordic Sea kelp. They live the life nature intended for them. Add in that our cows are never exposed to pesticides nor given any antibiotics or artificial hormones, and you have beef you can feel good about eating. Plus, it tastes amazing!

Our pigs are rotated through a combination of open pastures as well as orchard/wooded areas. Their diet is based mainly on natural forage as they rotate through a variety of paddocks. As they grow and require added feed supplementation, we provide locally sourced non-GMO grain.

Our chickens also live their lives outdoors as nature intended. They free-range in our pastures and are rotated regularly for access to new forage opportunities. Like our pigs, the chickens are given a free-choice, non-GMO feed from a local feed producer.

We won’t sell something we wouldn’t feed to our kids!

The Chapel Hill Farm, near Winchester, VA, turns back the history book to the way beef is supposed to taste. Chapel Hill Randall Linebacks live very much as they would have hundreds of years ago. Ranging free on the grasslands of historic Chapel Hill Farm and drinking only limestone springwater, the Randall Linebacks, America’s ancient and rarest cattle, provide the discriminating and health-conscious gourmet the finest beef in the world.

Several hundred years ago, American farmers created the Randall Lineback through mixing European breeds to form a distinct blend that would naturally withstand the special rigors of the New World and that would provide meat, dairy products, and oxen. These animals were the ideal breed for subsistence farming in America. Randall beef was on America’s table before feedlots, before antibiotics, and before growth hormones. Because of their heritage, Randall Linebacks have finely grained meat with little intermuscular fat. Add to this the fact that they are grassfed and the result is meat that has an intense clean taste and is much better for you than conventional breeds of beef.

You are saving the endangered Randall Lineback breed when you eat Chapel Hill Randall Lineback rose-veal and beef by thus encouraging producers to raise more of these rare cattle. In addition, you have the pleasure of tasting a natural beef which has not been commercially available for more than a hundred years. Beef sides cut to order, USDA inspected, available from the farm; separate cuts available at Salamander Market, Middleburg, VA.

Davis Creek Farm is a small family farm in the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains between Charlottesville and Lynchburg. Since 2001, we have raised heritage breed Red Poll beef cattle, older breeds of laying hens (eggs), as well as pasture-raised broiler chickens. (As of 2014, we no longer produce broiler chickens.)

We also produce smaller quantities of fruits and vegetables. Unlike most grocery store produce, however, we do not rely on CAFO fertilizer. Rather, our animals feed on our produce and in turn fertilize it, creating a perfect cycle. We not only provide a physical alternative to factory farming by raising animals solely on pasture, but more importantly, we seek to honor the life that feeds us and our community. We recognize that our animals and plants teach and sustain us, and we are humbly grateful to them. All plants and animals are loved and thanked throughout their lives for their sacred contribution to the whole.

Our fruits and vegetables receive only organic fertilizers from our animals. Our animals' diet consists of grass, certified organic alfalfa, sea kelp, natural minerals, and hay in winter. We use a very small-scale, family-run processor dedicated to humane treatment of the animals. Unlike store-bought beef, they dry-age the meat.

Our beef, eggs, and produce are not only good for you, but customers say, "you can taste the love." Local chef Rachel Willis described our beef as “absolutely the best-tasting grass-fed beef I've ever had.”

Please see our website for basic information. We welcome visitors!

Day Spring Farm is a family farm that works together raising pasture-fed, all-natural animals with sustainable practices. We raise grass fed/finished lamb and beef, pasture-raised pork and poultry (eggs, chicken and turkey), and fresh milk from our Jersey cows, along with vegetables and herbal products. Full Diet CSA available, and other CSA options. Please see website for details.

Our meats are naturally raised and grass-fed the way God designed them, with no growth hormones, stimulants, or antibiotics. The animals are raised on pasture, walking over acres of land, enjoying the sunshine and fresh air, foraging naturally like animals were created to do. Raising animals in their natural setting creates meat that is more healthy for you and your family, as well as being more humane for the animal. Sustainable agriculture also ensures that our children and grandchildren will have good farmland left to raise food for their family and friends.

In 2005 we started raising animals for meat to have a clean source of happy, healthy food for our family. In 2006 we were blessed with enough products to start sharing with our friends. From there our business has spread by word of mouth. We thank God and our customers who have helped us grow into a sustainable business.

We hope you will join us in our quest to promote and enjoy healthy, nourishing foods. Our farm store is open by appointment only. We offer tours and we are happy to teach customers about how we care for our animals.

Glen Eco Farm is a small, diversified farm, committed to sustainable agricultural principles. We produce a variety of fresh vegetables in season and market them at a local farmers' market, directly to customers who come to the farm, and also through a small CSA which we launched in 1998.

We maintain a small flock of pastured laying hens from which we sell eggs during the farmers' market season and year-round at the farm. We offer optional egg shares to our CSA customers during the CSA season and collaborate with a nearby pastured broiler producer to sell some of his product to our CSA patrons. During the winter months our eggs can be bought at several retail outlets in Harrisonburg, Virginia. Once a year, usually in the fall, we have older spent hens that we offer for sale to customers who want to use them as stewing meat or as feed for pets. We prefer to sell them live at a fair price.

We have recently sold most of our beef herd and are no longer offering beef products either by the cut or by the side.

Good Plains Farm is a small farm located in Timberville, Virginia. We are dedicated to the practice of regenerative agriculture and learning to be better stewards of the land by focusing on the health of the soil, plants, and animals--which translates to healthy consumers! Returning to our ancestral roots, soil, and the "Plains" of the Valley as 7th and 8th generation of "Good" farmers, we hope to provide a high-quality food source to local families and continue to expand our offerings in the future.

We currently raise a small herd of 100% grassfed and finished pure Devon and Devon/Angus cross beef. Our grass-fed Devon cattle have been well loved and cared for. Along with using soil-building rotational grazing practices across our land with daily moves to fresh grass, are cattle are given a free-choice mineral mix, kelp, and natural trace mineral salt.

Grass-fed and finished beef is available for custom processing at various times throughout the year, as well as by the individual cut. We are in the process of building an on-farm store to allow customers to stop in and shop!

We also have a flock of pasture-raised hens which are a diverse mix of heritage breeds as well as crosses/hybrids and we get a rainbow of colorful pastured eggs! Our hens are 100% on pasture in a mobile coop that is moved frequently to fresh pasture. They are also fed a high-quality (non-medicated), locally milled, non-GMO and soy-free feed.

Eggs are available anytime at our farm in the fridge. We accept Cash/Coin, Check, Venmo, and PayPal.

Gryffon's Aerie is run by Collins & Ramona Huff and their two children in Western Albemarle County, nestled at the base of the Shenandoah National Park. We raise American Milking Devon and Beef Devon cattle and Tamworth pigs, and Karakul sheep. We have worked diligently over the years to breed one of the largest purebred American Milking Devon herds in the United States. Leading experts in the beef and cattle industry consider our genetics to be superior for grass finished beef.

Our goal is to produce the finest grass-fed beef and natural pork, which is why we chose heritage breeds. We feel that heritage breeds are best suited to grass feeding because that was their original diet and their genetics have remained unaltered.

Our cattle are raised on lush pastures from birth to finish. They do not receive hormones, unnecessary antibiotics, or grain which may contain animal by-products. We do not use herbicides or pesticides on our pastures. The cattle are rotated on a daily basis to new pastures and are followed by other livestock to further enhance the soils. In the winter cattle are moved to alpine meadows at the back of the farm that are stockpiled with cool season grasses and legumes.

Our natural pork are all free-range. The Tamworth pigs are known as the "Irish grazers." Most of their diet is made up of grazing high quality grasses and foraging for nuts and berries in the woods. We never put rings in their snouts. This is cruel and inhumane—a pig's nature is to root. These pigs are friendly, intelligent, highly vocal and take particular delight in a good belly rub. They are the "personalities of the barnyard." We supply several other pork producers with young pigs for their natural programs. We have over twenty breeding sows and two different lines of boars.

Our animals are never separated from their mothers; natural weaning is paramount. Although it may slow breeding production slightly, we feel that it makes for a healthier, happier livestock. The animals are not just our livelihood, they are our companions and our responsibility. It is our mission to raise and harvest them in a stress-free and respectful environment.

All meat is processed at USDA facilities that meet our strict humane slaughtering guidelines. Nothing is wasted. Bones are used to make stocks and demi-glace, the hides are tanned, and wool is spun into yarns. It is all part of our mission, and that of the American Livestock Breeds Conservancy, to protect the genetic diversity and integrity of heritage livestock.

We encourage you to come to the farm to purchase your products, we offer a truly unique farm experience. Located just 2 miles north of White Hall only 15 minutes west of Charlottesville. There are many orchards and vineyards in this area that are open to the public.

Keenbell Farm is a third generation farm located in Hanover County, Virginia. We specialize in all natural grass-fed beef, pastured pork, and free range eggs. All of our livestock enjoy life out on pasture, are humanely raised and are without growth hormones, steroids, or routine antibiotics.

Our cattle are raised on pasture year-around; we provide organic kelp, and natural ground minerals instead of synthetic commercial minerals. The pigs are raised on pasture and rotated behind the cattle, getting a substantial portion of their diet from the grass, and rooting up the ground; we provide them free-choice ground corn to supplement their diet. Our eggs are truly free-range, they at no time are confined in a house with only a small dirt run to use. Our chickens follow behind the other livestock with electric netting and a house in which their feed, nests, and water is kept. Most of their day is spent outside on the fresh grass.

All of our meat products are USDA inspected, vacuum sealed and frozen. We specialize in providing "by the cut," so no order is too small. We carry products year-around.

We encourage visitors to the farm (call ahead please). We want to make the farm a part of the community, and the community a part of the farm. We take pride in the land that we have been provided and want to ensure that it will be here to provide for the community.

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.


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.

KW Homestead is located in Stokes County, North Carolina. We raise delicious, pasture-raised, non-GMO Heritage Turkeys, Pekin Ducks, and Red Ranger Chickens. We also produce pasture-raised, non-GMO Duck Eggs. We also offer various Poultry CSAs, at a discount from out regular prices!

We take extra care to raise and harvest all of our animals humanely. When they’re not eating wild native plants, grass, bugs, and other small creatures, our animal clan is fed sprouted grains and non-GMO feed from local farmers. We do not raise any of our animals with antibiotics or hormones (ever!) and all of our animals live their lives on pasture, free ranging throughout our property. The products we raise are ideal for people following Paleo or Weston A. Price diets.

KW stands for "Kuska Wiñasun," which means "Let's Grow Together" in Quechua, and that is exactly our philosophy when it comes to providing nutritious, healthy products for you and your family. We raise our birds from infancy through the day of their processing, and we complete all meat processing ourselves. We believe very strongly in this accountability, and in the seasons of our animals' life cycle.

We also believe very strongly in running a sustainable homestead and business and want you to know that none of the bird you purchase is wasted. While you purchase the meat, we use all of the remaining parts and nothing is discarded.
Nature and sustainability education is important to us, and we have various outlets for sharing our homestead life with the public: our blog, our Farm to Your School Program, and our Kids Wondering educational videos. In addition to raising poultry, we raise gourmet mushrooms and other tasty vegetables.

We currently sell our products at The Corner Farmer's Market in Greensboro, NC and deliver our products to customers at various NC Triad and Southern VA locations.

At Longbottom Farm, we specialize in grass-fed beef, pastured pork, pastured poultry, and free-range eggs. We are located just 25 minutes south of Charlottesville in Scottsville VA.

Knowing where the food we eat comes from is important to us. Like you, we wanted to know how the food we ate was produced, what chemicals were used, and how the animals were treated. The answer isn’t readily available unless you know your farmer. This is what sets Longbottom Farm apart. Reconnecting people with the food we eat to the land and animals that produce it—something that's lost among today’s current supermarket offerings.

We are raising healthy animals that are allowed to express their normal behaviors. They rotate through lush pastures, replenishing the land by using management techniques that mimic natural cycles. Following nature’s lead and working with nature instead of against it. That’s what Longbottom Farm is all about and why we love what we do!

Because we are so far out in the country, we also offer monthly delivery points in larger towns within a two and a half hour radius, as long as there is an acceptable amount of monthly purchases. We have just begun this practice and are currently serving Sterling, VA, outside WDC. Contact us to organize a delivery point in your area to have quality grassfed beef and lamb delivered monthly to your office complex or neighborhood.

As seasoned grassfed farmers, we believe in sustainable agriculture, low-impact farming, streamside fencing and rotational grazing. Kent has been keen on every aspect of grassfed farming since its inception. Our pastures are not certified organic, but looking at the requirements, we feel they would qualify. We supplement our livestock with organic kelp. We use no growth hormones and no antibiotics. Our beeves are raised in lush meadows and extremely remote mountaintops in peaceful, chemical-free conditions. Our lambs are raised on a separate local farm with the same practices. Our animals are treated gently at all times and learn to trust our care. They move gently and peacefully.

We are not looking to be a large company. Our mission is to steadily provide an ongoing quality grassfed beef product throughout the coming years to people like ourselves who believe in a healthy way to live and eat. Thank you for reading our listing. We hope you will choose us for your grassfed needs. Our beef is lean, dark red, simply beautiful, and tastes wonderful. Please visit our website for pricing and more information.

Pink House Pigs is a small family farm where we raise purebred Tamworth and Tamworth crossbred pigs on pasture.

Tamworth is an old heritage breed that is long and lean and manages quite well living off the land with minimal help from the farmer. They are beautiful red pigs and make great crosses with other breeds because of their distant relation. Our crossbred pigs combine the leanness and hardiness of the Tamworth with the meatiness of other large traditional breeds.

Our pigs are free to graze in fields of clover and orchard grass, snooze in the shade of the woods, root, (nothing short of concrete stops them, and we have none of that) and just do what pigs do naturally. Piglets are naturally weaned. No growth hormones or routine antibiotics are used.

Pigs are available as feeder pigs (weaned piglets), or whole grown hogs for barbeques or your freezer etc. You may pick them up directly from the farm, or we can deliver to the butcher for you. We also have a variety of pork cuts and sausages available from the farm. Please call or email for availability and prices.

Polyface, Inc. is grassfarming guru Joel Salatin's family farm. Nestled in Virginia's Shenandoah Valley, the farm was launched in 1961 by Joel's health-conscious parents. The family has never used chemical fertilizers, pesticides, or herbicides, making this one of the oldest environmentally friendly farms in the United States. Polyface has been the working model for many of the farms in this directory and has been featured on ABC News and in the Smithsonian magazine.

Four hundred families and numerous restaurants rely on Polyface for salad bar beef, eggs from free-ranging hens, ready-to-lay pullets, and pastured chickens, turkeys, rabbits and pigs. Some customers drive 300 miles round trip to pick up their products.

It may be inconvenient for customers to have to drive to the farm, but there's a hidden benefit: they get to see exactly how their food was raised. Children may benefit the most. According to Joel, "Kids enjoy seeing and petting the animals, romping in the fields, and learning firsthand who, what, where, when, why, and how their food was made."

At Rucker Farm we raise pastured pork, chicken, turkey, and eggs.

We are Isabelle and Garrett Heydt! This farm has been a multigenerational, working family farm since 1952. Our mission is to steward the soil and grass and treat them as vital keystone players in our farm’s future success. This ensures a better understanding and harmony with mother nature, and results in our animals living a quality life–one we are proud to share!

Rucker Farm is dedicated to protecting the land for future generations, and growing nutrient-dense food that is healing and serves a greater communal need. Items we offer include, but are not limited to:

  • Pasture/forest raised non-GMO Pork. Pigs have access to pasture and wooded areas and are free to root as much as they like—no ringed noses here! They are typically moved once a week, or as needed, with overseeding practices behind them.
  • Pasture-raised Chicken, Turkey, and Eggs – Our cornish-cross meat birds are rotated on fresh pasture daily; closer to their harvest they are rotated two times a day. We supplement them with non-GMO feed and never give any antibiotics or hormones. Birds are processed on farm in chemical-free water.

[Note from Eatwild: Rucker Farm also offers grass-fed beef on their website; select carefully as some of their beef does not yet fully meet Eatwild’s criteria.]

Every animal on the farm is pasture raised! Our protocols include:

See our online store for more info on bulk orders and how we raise our animals.

How to Buy:

  • Pre-order online for farm pick up, drop-off locations, or home delivery.
    • For farm pickups, you can order online and pickup from our self-serve freezer with easy 24/7 access.
  • Farmers Markets (confirm schedules through preorder or email)
  • Stay up to date with our online blog and weekly newsletter.

The Sanders Farm is located in the foothills of Clinch Mountain in upper east Tennessee, close to neighboring Kentucky, Virginia and North Carolina. We have tended a small beef cow/calf herd at our family farm since 1979. We have kept our pasture and hayfields herbicide and pesticide-free for over 40 years. We use no antibiotics, pesticides or growth stimulants of any kind on any animal to be sold on Eatwild. Flies are kept under control with a walk-through fly trap and dustings of diatomaceous earth.

The calves I am selling eat only our own pasture and hay and their mother's milk. They free-range with their mothers and the rest of my closed herd until the day they are processed.

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

We would rather sell our beef calves to individuals who want untainted beef than into the feedlot industry where they live a little longer but in an unnatural and highly stressful way.

Sarver Heritage Farm is a 3rd generation beef farm on 250 acres of beautiful rolling hills in the Organ Cave area of WV.

This is a ‘forever’ farm, via the Farmland Protection Program. Basically, we’re a couple of hermits who avoid bright lights and buzzwords, off in the highlands raising the best darn beef you’ll ever taste. Our farming practices are featured in an international agricultural magazine and two books devoted to artisanal beef. Our practices, animals, and records are fully documented; we’re real, not buzz. We are what happens when you turn an artist/philosopher and a biology geek/animal lover loose with grandpa’s cattle farm.

If you’re looking for extremely lean grass-fed beef—we can’t help you. Our Angus/Galloway herd produces beautifully marbled, dry aged steaks from fully fat-covered carcasses. Food reviewers swoon over it. From the Artisan Beef Institute: “I’m in hamburger heaven.” From Craig “Meathead” Goldwyn: “…the Platonic ideal of the modern steak. Sooooo beautifully beefy and best of all, balanced.” Yes, it’s that good. No, you can't get thirty pounds of Rib Eyes.

Nutrition testing data is on our website and our FB page, (yes, we care enough to have our own testing done), as is all the information folks try to convey or imply with buzzwords.

Our Beef and Rose Veal is USDA inspected and available by the cut at our Farm Store and through our Online Store. We offer Sides and Whole Beef from the farm only; prices based on hanging weight, pre-order/deposit required. Please see web site for details about our practices.

Other farm products:

  • Handcrafted Soaps, featuring our beef tallow and organic oils.
  • Jams from our own pesticide/herbicide/fungicide-free fruit, cane sugar and pectin—and nothing else,
  • VERY limited quantities of live poultry, eggs, and hatching eggs, raised Free Range on organic feed: Dorking Chickens, Sebastopol Geese, and Heritage Breed Turkeys.

We Raise our Animals Humanely on chemical-free, nutrient-dense, lush pastures, with abundant space, fresh air, and natural spring water. Our animals never receive antibiotics, hormones, vaccines (mRNA or other). We never feed GMO grains and our processors never clean with toxic chlorine bleaches.

Beyond Organic, Integrity, and Transparency. The word "organic" has become whitewashed and usurped by commercial food companies. Not only is it getting hard find real food grown according to Nature's laws, but some farm companies now are intentionally deceptive capitalizing on words like Natural, Organic, Pasture-Raised, Free-Range, and Raw. We are committed to the fundamental values of regenerative farming that provide some of the cleanest, nutrient-dense food for the health of your family, the animals, and the planet. We don't claim to be perfect, but we are committed to full transparency. We experiment, learn, and grow as food security and health become ever so important.

Made in USA. We like the idea of creating jobs at home and boosting our economy instead of New Zealand's. It just seems to be more sustainable, environmentally friendly, and secure than buying and shipping food from across the ocean.

Know Your Food and Farmer. We think it's important to have a relationship with your farmer. And, although we are very busy farming and because our Amish tradition doesn't allow us to use modern technology, we will always find time to talk with you alongside us while we are milking, fixing fences, or moving cattle. Stop by our farm stores or schedule a tour to meet us and our animals.

We will treat you and feed you like family!

The farm consists of several owned and leased properties in Loudoun County, Virginia, just 40 miles from Washington DC. The Crush's raise a multitude of products, including grass fed/grass finished beef, pastured chicken, goats, lamb, and honey, and our award-winning pasture-raised and forest-finished heritage pork—winners of the 2013 Cochon 555 (Miami) and the 2016 Cochon 555 (Washington, DC).

In the Summer of 2013, Spring House Farm launched its Meat CSA and "a la carte" program.

We selected cattle to be the mainstay of our farm due to our affinity with this truly gentle creature that has historically connected mankind with the natural world. Therefore, our beef is the way most people come to know us. Cattle are the centerpiece at Wolf Creek Farm, but we do offer several other grass farming based services and welcome friends and neighbors to come visit us.

As grass farmers, we steward the soil, woodlands, and riparian ways with only natural amendments and methods. As traditional animal husbandry men, we raise our herd with no force-fed hormones or antibiotics and commit to provide healthy and nutritious beef from our farm to your table.
