A1 Heritage Breed Farms is located in west central Ohio, close to Indiana, not far from I-75. Like us on Facebook (HeritageBreedFarms) and keep up with us via our website.
We started our farm for several key reasons. First and foremost we wanted to be sustainable. We feel that God has entrusted us as stewards of his creation. Being sustainable keeps our land and animals in the best possible health and returns the land in better shape than when we received it. Secondly, we wanted to raise the best tasting food because food should never have additives if its authentically good! Third, we wanted our children to grow up on a farm—who wouldn’t? Lastly, and most importantly, we wanted food that was good for you. Raising a young and growing family, eating healthy food was a no brainer which is why we grow everything using organic practices. All of these decisions lead us to raising the heritage breeds of: Dexter cattle, Large Black and Red Wattle hogs, Buckeye chickens, Olberhasi goats, Katahdin sheep, Bronze breasted turkeys, and several other mixed breeds of animals, most of which follow the heritage breed lines.
We currently have pastured freezer pork available. There is lots of bacon on our hogs—32 pounds on average! No wonder they call large blacks “bacon hogs.” These are our personal favorites, they taste EXCELLENT. In our opinion, there is no comparison in taste and flavor! Our Red Wattles are also featured pork on Slow Food USA's Ark of Taste.
Grass Fed Dexter beef is the fastest selling item on our farm. Dexters have excellent marbling for grass fed animals and have about a 20% larger rib eye for its size (my favorite cut! ) They are extremely docile and small. If you are used to ordering a half, then you want a whole; if you are used to a quarter, you want half a Dexter. This allows you to get all the premium cuts of meat without breaking the bank!
Pastured poultry. Please order ahead because we get our chicks in late winter/early spring. We can raise as many meat birds as our customers want, but we have to receive the orders early to get our preparations done ahead of summer. We also have pastured eggs layed by our favorite bird, the Buckeyes! What a great bird, raised in the same great state as its namesake!
Delivery available Columbus, Cincinnati, Toledo, Indianapolis and closer.
As always thank you for your business and remember to eat local and eat fresh!

Grace & Joy Farms is a 270-acre family owned farm raising grass-fed and grass-finished cattle and sheep using humane and all natural processes. Our steers are moved from field to field and graze on non-treated high quality nourishing forage. When ice and snow prevent natural grazing, we provide the highest quality hay to our animals. No pesticides or chemicals are used on our forage. Our animals ingest young clover and a variety of "salad bar" greens including various grasses and free choice minerals. They are provided with a source of fresh water and we maintain a low stress environment. We do not use any antibiotics or hormones in our cattle or sheep, ever.
Their grass fed diet translates into healthier beef and lamb as well as a superior taste. Grass-fed results in higher levels of CLA and Omega 3. Additionally, our beef is dry-aged for a minimum of fourteen days which adds to the flavor and tenderness.
Our goal is to provide superior beef and lamb at competitive prices for those who are educating themselves about the content and quality of their food.

all-natural pastured meat (beef and chicken).
Our farm has been chemical and pesticide-free
for nearly 27 years. All of our meat animals are raised on organic
pasture in the fresh air and sunlight. We raise 100% Angus beef
cattle, individually selected for superior grass genetics to ensure
the highest quality grass-fed beef. They fatten naturally (without

wormers, animal by-products, growth promoters, or feed additives.

a free-feed basis. Our chickens are also pastured out in the
fresh air with plenty of sunlight. Our chicks are started with
organically certified grain. Their foraging diet consists of grasses,
legumes, bugs and grain that contains no hormones, steroids, antibiotics,
or animal by-products.

put a great deal of emphasis on the health of our land, our soils,
our forages, and our animals—and that careful management undeniably
converts to the health and goodness of our beef and chicken. We
believe that it is our role to be good stewards in caring responsibly

The Walkerton Dairy Herd Association (WDHA) leases land from Ceres & Co. Organics, and was my brainchild when I wanted higher quality raw milk. I was getting raw milk, but I didn't like plastic jugs, didn't want my milk from animals that were fed grain, and none were certified organic. So I found an organic farmer who would sell two cows to fourteen of us and rent us his milking parlor.
When the farmer moved his operation, we needed a new home. My 82 acre farm had been fallow for years. I applied for organic certification through OEFFA and got certified in 2008. In addition to being USDA certified, we follow biodynamic organic farming principles. See details of our cow share program here.
When we butcher, the shareholders get a discount on the meat, and if there is any left over for the general public, that money goes to the shareholders, as does income from calves. There are four required workdays per year, and the favorite is spreading BD-500 on all of the paddocks.
Our cows are outside 24/7, except for milking time. The calves live outside too, and they are beautiful, healthy animals. There are strategically placed windbreaks for the cows and calves in case of inclement weather, but they rarely use them.
I have free range organic chickens here, never fed any soy. The garden and greenhouse are certified organic as well. Our produce goes to members of our CSA, the farmers' markets and a nearby restaurant. I've expanded the garden, hoping to find more customers for produce. But my main focus is definitely the dairy herd. I finally have that milk I wished for - certified organic, packaged in glass jars, from contented cows that live outside on organic pastures—who could ask for anything more?
