AT THE ANDERSON FARM, we raise the most luscious, lip-smackin’ lamb you’ve ever sunk your teeth into.

Grassfed lamb
Sure is tasty
Keeps you slim
In your waistie!

Our lambs are raised naturally on mother’s milk and quality, rotationally-grazed pastures. That’s why they taste so good! And no, we don’t use artificial hormones, steroids or antibiotics.

TO HELP YOU PLAN, a bundle of whole lamb typically includes:
2 legs of lamb
2 packages lamb leg steaks (4 per package)
1 rack of lamb
4 packages rib steaks (4 per package)
1 package shanks cut into 3/4 cross sections
loin chops (4 per package)
stew meat
liver
heart
tongue
lamb riblets
lamburger

IS THE MEAT GOVERNMENT INSPECTED? Yes. Freezer lamb is USDA inspected, cut, double-wrapped, frozen and sold as a bundle.

HOW MUCH STORAGE SPACE DO I NEED? A typical refrigerator freezer compartment can store 2 or 3 lamb bundles. Each bundle requires less than 1 ½ cubic feet of space.

HOW MUCH DOES IT COST? Freezer lamb sells for $10.99 per pound. Each bundle weighs approximately 30–45 pounds. Due to market fluctuations, prices are subject to change without notice.

WE ARE ENVIRO-FRIENDLY and just plain friendly. We love it when folks stop over for a farm tour and buy a lamb. Our farm borders Highway 61 just 30-40 minutes from Davenport, Iowa and Rock Island, Illinois.

WHEN IS LAMB AVAILABLE? We try to have lamb ready all year but sometimes we sell out. It’s best to call or email before you come.

Anderson Farm, Kari Anderson, 1575 Underwood Avenue, Muscatine Iowa 52761. Call (563) 554-1397 (please leave a message).

Dakota Harvest Farm is located in very extreme South Dakota, a few miles away from both Iowa and Nebraska. Dakota Harvest Farm raises Dorper lambs in a natural environment. Dorpers are a “hair” sheep rather than wool breed and are specially developed for the quality of their meat.

All of our lambs are born and raised naturally with their mothers on our pastures so we can guarantee that they’re healthy. They spend their time on pastures getting plenty of fresh air, sunshine, and clean water as they roam. In the winter months, they are fed alfalfa hay, also grown on our farm, to provide them with optimum nutrition and health. In turn, they produce a lean, healthy, nutrient dense and protein rich meat.

We don’t administer growth hormones or antibiotics. We do not feed any animal byproducts. We do not apply artificial fertilizers or chemicals on our pastures.

Our specialty items include Lamb Filet Mignon, Lamb Summer Sausage, and Smoked Leg of lamb. Other lamb products are:

  • Leg of Lamb (boneless)
  • Lamb Chop
  • Shanks
  • Spare Ribs
  • Shoulder Chop
  • Ground Lamb

We do ship our fresh lamb to your house.

Dakota Harvest Farm, Bob and Barb Corio, 33565 Dakota Road, Jefferson SD  57038. (605) 966-5490 (Call after 6 pm or leave a message.)

The birth of Fockler Creek Farm was the result of two common stories: A father with diabetes, and a son who wanted to farm but saw no way in. Sound like a strange combination? Shouldn’t in this day and age. Through the experience of a serious case of diabetes (6 shots a day) being cured with whole foods, and a dream of farming becoming reality with the use of innovative and unconventional techniques, Fockler Creek Farms took flight! Brian the previous farmer-to-be, and Scott the cured diabetic, along with their wives and children now raise beyond organic pastured pork, grass-finished beef and lamb, and pastured poultry.

Fockler Creek Farm’s mission is “To implement and develop systems of agriculture that result in solvent farmers, sane people, and sound ecosystems.” Since we are all part of the whole, the creation, the ecosystem, or whatever other term you use to describe it, our mission directs us to provide you with food that nourishes and heals. We’re very passionate about this as we have seen the difference it has made in our own lives. We’re also very passionate about promoting farmer-centric methods of agriculture and ways of farming that affirm the value of life.  

For more detailed and technical information check us out on our website, focklercreek.com. We look forward to connecting you with the best our farm has to offer!

Galen Bontrager Farm is a 'Beyond Organic" direct marketing, grass-based farm featuring Salad Bar Beef, Salad Bar Lamb, pastured pork, pastured broilers, pastured turkey, and pastured eggs

As a former Polyface Inc. apprentice with Joel Salatin, I raise my animals using the Salatin methods that are highlighted in Michael Pollan's runaway bestseller The Omnivores Dilemma. (I'm actually mentioned in the book because I was an apprentice while Michael was there gathering the information for his book). 

I am not "certified organic" but avoid the use of chemicals, growth hormones, genetically modified grains, antibiotics, dead animal parts, chicken litter, or drugs. Sales of some products are seasonal and others year-round; please contact me for availability. Custom beef is sold in wholes, halves, and quarters, and custom lamb in wholes or halves. Broilers and turkeys are custom ordered, processed, and picked up at the farm. On-farm sales of non-chlorinated eggs May–October.

I do not ship food anywhere and encourage people to patronize local producers. People are welcome to visit the farm, connect with their food, and see how it's raised. I greatly appreciate your support to keep local family farming alive and well.

For any inquiries about my products, ordering information, farm visits, and full-scale guided farm tours, please give me a call. I look forward to serving you. Joyfully at your service!

Graze Co. provides pasture-raised, hormone- and antibiotic-free chicken, and pork! Grown and raised with care from our family farm in Carlisle, Iowa.

Shop our goods today

Around here, we're all about restoration. Restoring our land. Restoring agriculture. And restoring a simpler way of life. We believe in the beauty of connecting with the food that nourishes us and find great joy in inspiring others to do the same. Our farming practices are not just sustainable because ultimately, sustainability is like treading water. Managed Intensive Rotational Grazing describes our farming practices. Whether you're looking for wholesome food to serve your family or a dose of old-fashioned inspiration from our farm, we are happy to serve you. 

Pasture Raised Chicken
Our chickens are chickens. We let them be chickens. They have access to sunshine, fresh air, clean water, bugs, and grass. Lots of grass. They eat NON-GMO feed from a local farm and are moved daily to fresh grass. What does that mean for you? Richer flavor and a more nutrient-dense meat for your family.

Pastured Raised Pork
Our pigs are pigs. We let them be pigs. They live outside and have access to sunshine, clean water, fresh pasture, and all the mud in which to root and roll. They eat dirt, roots, bugs, grubs, and grass. Lots of grass. Our pigs are supplemented with NON-GMO feed and NON-GMO organic barley fodder (hydroponically grown, if you're technical). All these nutrients, vitamins, enzymes, and minerals lead to a healthy pig and more flavorful pork. We may be biased, but the Berkshire breed is the best tasting pork around and you need to give it a try!

The Koether Ranch offers grassfed beef on a year-round basis. We have been organic since 1985, but are not certified. We prefer to sell quarters or split halves, but we sell individual packages as well. We usually ship frozen meat 2nd Day Air in special containers.

Our goal is to provide the best possible care and diet for our animals so that our customers can get the healthiest possible meat. The cattle never eat grain. They eat fresh grass from April thru November and winter on dry hay. They are fed a combination of kelp, minerals, and refined natural salt year- round. We complete the cattle's life cycle with humane slaughter. They are killed in our corral while standing quietly and then are hauled to the processing facility. This prevents any unnecessary stress on the animal.

We usually harvest our beef in late October – early November when the animals are 16 months old. We like to have large orders placed prior to slaughter, but we try to keep a supply of frozen meat on hand year-round. We also have lamb, goat and broiler chickens as well.

This year we are looking to sell 300-400 head of Katahdin breeding stock. They are all naturally raised with no vaccines or wormers. For any further details, please feel free to call anytime.

McGreal Family Farm is a small farming business rooted in Clayton County, Northeast Iowa. Currently managed by a third generation Iowa farmer and his partner, this land is home.

Firmly planted in a small town, we believe in local connections but we also service areas as far away as Chicago with our beef. We are not shipping at this time but we can provide a delivery service. We specialize in pasture-raised, 100% grass-fed, custom beef, although we have big plans to grow flowers and vegetables during the next growing season. Deeply inspired by Barbara Kingsolver’s book Animal, Vegetable, Miracle, we implement organic practices on our farm without an official certification.

Our cattle are rotated often, allowing them to always have access to the most nutritious plants, and allowing the native flora to replenish naturally. Our Black Angus and Hereford Angus crossbreeds graze on 1,000 acres of driftless land composed of fields and timber. Our nearby creeks are fenced off to prevent unnecessary impact. Our beef is unadulterated, meaning they are hormone and antibiotic-free. Always.

Our cattle will become available for purchase January 2019, and we are currently accepting reservations for whole, halves and quarters. Contact us at info@mcgrealfamilyfarm.com or give us a call at 563-245-1041 with any questions or orders. We are located at 20447 Elm Road Strawberry Point, IA 52076. You can find us on Google Maps and Facebook under “McGreal Family Farm.” And, if you’re in the area, feel free to stop by.

Tall Grass Bison, the largest bison producer in Iowa, maintains their herd of over 300 grass-fed bison on 1000 acres "as close to natural conditions as possible." The animals are free-range and graze on native prairie grasses; no corn or other grains are fed. Herds are managed for natural family order, an evolutionary development that minimizes stress, the precursor of pathogens, illness and tough meat. Healthy stress-free lives mean they have never needed nor been given a shot or antibiotics in their life.

Humane slaughter in the field eliminates the unnecessary stress of being transported to a slaughterhouse. Meat is dry-aged for 21 days and processed at a State Inspected locker. Bison meat is available in front quarters, hind quarters and hanging halves.

Yoder's Natural Farm is nested in the rolling hills of Davis County, 15 miles from Missouri and 60 miles from Illinois. On our 159 acres we produce beef, pork, lamb, chickens, eggs, turkeys and dairy products. Dairy products are available through a private membership association.

Our farm consists of approximately 100 acres of pasture and the other 59 acres in forest—lots of oak, hickory and walnut trees. Our beef and lamb is 100 percent grass-fed, grass-finished.
