Cattle Tracks Beef. What’s unique about Cattle Tracks Beef? Cattle Tracks is the only grass-grazed, grass-finished beef that is raised on a family owned/operated farm in Oklahoma, and the nation, with these three certifications: Non-GMO Verified, Certified Organic, and Animal Welfare Approved. Why are certifications important on our farm? Many of our customers agree that certifications are another means of knowing the practices used in raising livestock. We believe these certifications are based on livestock-raising techniques that go along with our desire to raise beef the way it was intended, free of inputs, implants, and in a sustainable, friendly environment.
What’s healthy about Cattle Tracks Beef? We had Cattle Tracks tested for healthy qualities instead of relying on the grass-fed industry standard. The Omega 6 / Omega 3 ratio surpasses the average for grass-fed beef and the CLA result is among the highest on record. These outstanding results are attributed to their extensive grass-grazed diet; in addition we supplement with a very small quantity of organic oats or barley, grown on our farm, at weaning and when weather stresses livestock. The maximum any animal would get a day is under two pounds, compared to the 40–50 pounds of corn of a feedlot animal.
What’s available to you from Cattle Tracks? Cattle Tracks Beef is sold by the cut, quarter, half or whole and is available year-around. When ordering a quarter, half or whole you determine a cutting order that best fits your needs. Dry-aged, 100% premium. It is our pleasure to serve the folks of Oklahoma, especially those wishing to know their farmer and who believe healthy soil = healthy plants = healthy food.

The Chapman Creek Cattle Company finishes its certified grassfed beef cattle the old fashioned way—in the pasture, naturally. Our mission is to provide the highest quality grassfed beef to our customers. We sell our beef by the side and make the buying experience as easy as possible.
We take orders year round and provide special pricing for cattle that are processed for delivery in the spring and fall each year. We provide free delivery to the metro Kansas City and northeast and central Kansas areas. For pricing and availability please see our web site or contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
All of our natural beef is certified grassfed by the American Grassfed Association. That means you can be assured our cattle have never received antibiotics or hormones and are finished on our native pastures. These cattle are 100% grassfed and never in a feedlot environment. All of our cattle are processed one at a time in a federally inspected processing plant.
Our certified grassfed beef is naturally lean, yet tender and flavorful, something only a truly natural product can provide. Grassfed beef has a firm texture and distinctively rich flavor you are sure to enjoy.
Certified grassfed beef is the delicious healthy choice. Cattle that eat just grass have higher ratios of omega fatty acids that reduce the risk of health problems. Only fish and olive oil have higher ratios of omega fatty acids. A healthy acid known as CLA is formed in the rumen of cattle when they only eat grass. The primary benefit of CLA is converting human body fat into lean muscle.
The Chapman Creek Cattle Company is owned by Clark and Susan Duffy. Our ranch is located in the western edge of the Flint Hills on the banks of Chapman Creek near Abilene. We also work with Glen and Patricia Everhart who own JOE’S Ranch in the eastern edge of the Flint Hills just north of Topeka.

Dale Family Farms is a small farm owned and managed by two generations of Dales. Located in South Central Kansas, we are striving to be sustainable. To do this, we have learned that we must better utilize our resources through improved grazing practices and reduced reliance on fuel and equipment. Over the last few years, we have realized that letting our animals remain in their natural environment—doing what they do best, grazing—is the key to sustainability.
Our beef comes from cattle that are finished on a strict forage diet of legumes, grasses, and forbs. The beef we sell contains no synthetic growth hormones and no antibiotics. When prepared properly, we have found that grass-finished beef is as tender as grain-fed beef with a much richer, fuller, beef flavor. Our grass-finished beef is available by the cut, wholes, halves and quarters.
Laying hens are allowed to free-range during the day, foraging for green grass, seeds and insects. This “salad bar” approach to their diet improves the flavor, texture and nutritional value of the eggs they produce.
Broilers are allowed to free-range during the day and can't even be compared to the industrial chickens you find in the store. Chicken is sold by the cut or as a whole bird.
Turkeys are also allowed to free-range during the day. They are available seasonally.
In 2010, pigs were added to the farm. Our hogs are pastured and allowed to roam tree rows near their pen, digging up roots and grass to supplement their diet. Pork is available by the cut, whole or half.
Dale Family Farms also carries goat and grassfed lamb.
Delivery and shipping are available.

Farrar Family Farm is 50 miles south of Kansas City in Adrian, MO. We offer grass-fed, grass-finished beef, forest-raised pork, pasture-raised chicken and turkey, and farm-fresh eggs. Our goal is to provide you with naturally-raised, wholesome food using sustainable farming methods that mimic the patterns found in nature.
We use rotational grazing to raise our grass-fed, grass-finished beef. The cattle are moved daily around our farm to new pastures and fresh forage.
The meat chickens and turkeys live on pasture with fresh air and sunshine. They scratch and forage for grass and bugs in addition to their non-GMO feed.
Our egg layers scratch and roam the pastures for natural sources of food along with their free-choice non-GMO feed. This cooperation between the chickens and the land allows for the healthiest pastures and the most nutrient-rich eggs.
What is forest-raised pork? Pigs that live in the forest! This is the ideal environment for a pig. They use their snout to root around and turn up the ground, uncovering food on the forest floor. They also have access to non-GMO feed. Good bacon comes from happy pigs!
Each month we make deliveries in Raymore, Lee’s Summit, and KCMO areas. In the summer you can find us at the Lee’s Summit farmers markets. We sell our products as individual pieces (1 steak, 1 pound ground, 1 whole chicken, etc.) with no minimum order. We offer bulk/wholesale options (half, quarter or eighth beef) or CSAs in the summer (May-October).

Goff Greengate Farm's mission is to handle the land as God intended… naturally, with good stewardship and using the most natural and sustainable products available to us at the time. We offer all-natural, pastured, grass-finished lamb and beef.
Our pastured poultry meat birds are fed organic, non-soy, non-GMO feed along with Fertrell's Poultry Nutribalancer trace minerals in addition to the fresh pasture land they are rotated onto twice each day via their "chicken tractors."

jjjmgrassfedbeef.com, located near Truman Lake in West Central Missouri, is owned and operated by 3rd and 4th generation family farmers. After the Civil War, both Union and Confederate soldiers settled the countryside and area became known as "Golden Valley." Soft rolling hills and spring-fed creeks blended into large parcels of un-treed, open farmland in the Grand River Basin. John Jurgensmeyer and his fraternal twin Ben purchased their property near Melrose, MO in 1919. Today John's grandchildren and great-grandchildren operate the family farm that has been Certified Organic since 1997.
We primarily raise Angus and Hereford for their superior marbling characteristics. Our grass fed natural beef cattle forage on continually rotated fresh pastures, and never receive synthetic growth hormones. Our protocol is to never use any antibiotics unless absolutely necessary for the animal's health and welfare. Our pastures are never treated with artificial fertilizers, herbicides or pesticides. We cut and bale our own red clover, lespedeza, fescue and orchard grass hay into those big round bales we roll out in winter.
We have animals available year round and offer either Quarter, Half, or Whole Beef. Our beef is processed in a small, family-owned USDA inspected facility and is dry-aged for a minimum of 14–21 days. It is then cut into ground beef, steaks, roasts, brisket, and soup bones for those who want a healthy cut of beef on hand when they need it.
We are committed to providing 100% pure grass fed beef that our customers can feel good about feeding to their families. We like to think of our customers as friends and partners, and we want you to feel comfortable about buying your meat from someone you know and trust.

Judy’s Soy-Free Organically Grown Eggs raises Red Star chickens that lay dark brown eggs. They live on a small property in Sedan KS where they are free to roam when the sun is up and are locked up in coop at night to keep safe while asleep. They eat anything in the yard and I feed them half a cup each everyday of certified soy-free organic chicken feed. They also get fresh kefir every day and any organic scraps I have.
I began growing chickens this way because my daughter is allergic to soy and wheat and must eat organic. Even store-bought organic made her sick, but she can eat these. They have dark yellow to orange yolks, firm shells, and hard whites.

The MJ Ranch is a 520 acre ranch that produces
100% grass fed/finished natural Angus beef. Cattle are raised
using humane, sustainable farming practices with no synthetic pesticides
or herbicides used on pastures. Cattle are rotated on lush green pastures
during the summer and our own high quality brome and alfalfa hay is
rolled out on the pastures during the winter months—thus our
beeves are never confined in a feedlot. They are given no growth hormones
Health benefits of grass fed beef are awesome! It
is low in saturated fat (comparable to bison) and high in Omega 3's,
CLA, Vitamin A and E, Beta Carotene, etc. Check it out! This nutritious
beef can be purchased at the Community Mercantile in Lawrence.

Moore Ranch is a family
ranch in Southwest Kansas which produces grass-fed longhorn beef,
pastured poultry, and eggs.
longhorn cattle are grazed out on the ranch grasses which Mother Natures
supplies. They are not fed any hormones, chemicals or low-level
antibiotics. Longhorn beef has been studied by Texas A&M and
found to be lower in saturated fats than other breeds. The flavorful
longhorn beef also has less cholesterol and calories than chicken.
Halves, split halves and other meat are available.
Our youngest son, Laramie, raises chickens,
eggs and honey. The broilers are pasture fed. Broilers
are available at the ranch as well as eggs from his hens which run
freely around the ranch barnyard and nearby grasslands.
We are very cognizant of the effect our livestock
have on the environment and strive to work with the resources available
at the ranch to bring you the best product. Our main goal is to maintain
an ecosystem which supports not only the livestock but the prairie,
wild animals, air, water and soil as well.
Visitors are welcome to
visit and see how we use rotational grazing to enhance the cattle as
well as wildlife, rangeland, and the surrounding environment.

Oak Creek Bison raises
and sells grassfed American Bison.
Our animals graze year round on the same native grasses
that bison have lived on for centuries. In the winter months, their feed
is supplemented with native prairie hay and alfalfa cubes. The animals
are given NO growth hormones or drugs. Parasite control is obtained by
using diatomaceous earth administered in the alfalfa cubes.

have available a chopped and formed 100% grassfed Bison Jerky, which
does not require refrigeration. Bison skulls and hides are also available.

Omega Beef. Amanda and I took an interest in food quality in 2002 when our daughter Anna was a baby—and we continue to learn every day. From the Westin A. Price Foundation to the chefs who love the art of the meal, we have learned about the beauty of food from farm to table.
As lovers of beef, growing our own is a real passion. Early on, the idea of "grass-only" beef was something I hoped to avoid—I just didn't like it! For years, we connected with ranches in Kansas and Missouri but often found the "grass-only" beef to be dry, tough, or just tasting bad. I was convinced they needed grain.
So, we started to experiment with a finishing method to raise the Omega-3 fatty acids and balance the whole lipid profile of the beef. We used corn and freshly ground flax seed—a method that produced decent tasting beef, but was very expensive, labor intensive, and did not produce the health quality we wanted. As we learned about the tremendous benefits of grass-only fat profiles, CLAs and the other nuanced benefits of happy cows, we set out on our mission: Grow high-quality, great-tasting beef with animals that never touch grain.
Well, we believe we have found something special. Our Omega Beef is delicious! The secret was two-fold:
- Genetics—animals that have grass-finishing genes, and
- Soil/vegetation quality—mineral-balanced soil with high-quality, nutrient-rich grasses and legumes.
First: the genetics. Our steers are from a mix of four maternal breeds—Angus, Hereford, Senepol, and Barzona—that are great at turning grass into tender beef.
Second: the beautiful grass. We can't take much credit for the incredible soil composition of the Kansas Flint Hills region—the optimal mineral content creates some of the best grasslands in the world—but we are grateful for this blessing.
So, here's to tender steaks, wonderful beefy roasts, and, of course, delicious grass-fed cheeseburgers!
Our herds are small and supply is limited!

Russell Ranch OK raises purebred Murray Grey and Murray Grey cross cattle. The Murray Grey is known for the important traits of calving ease, feed efficiency, and carcass quality. Murray Grey beef is preferred for its consistent quality and tenderness. We personally guarantee the quality of our beef and strive to produce superior quality grass-fed beef.
We make every effort to finish out our animals on native pastures. However, we do feed purchased feed if the forage is deficient because of drought, ice storms, etc. We have a smaller place (50 acres) in NE Oklahoma and keep a small herd of around 25 grown cows. Although we have excellent pastures, we feed hay and COB (corn, oats, and barley) when the weather is bad to help keep their energy levels up. When we feed COB, we only feed a few days and only while the weather is severe. We feed in troughs and the cows and bull get approximately 25 pounds (half a sack) of feed every 2–3 days.
Our cattle never see a feedlot. Steroids and artificial growth hormones are not used on our cattle. We keep a health record on each animal and if a steer needs antibiotics, they are pulled from our program and sold on another market.
Grass-fed beef has enormous health benefits. Lower in both in overall fat and saturated fat. It also provides more omega-3 fatty acids. Meat from pastured cattle is also up to four times higher in vitamin E and much higher in conjugated linoleic acid (CLA), a nutrient associated with lower cancer risk, as well as higher in beta-carotene and lower in calories. Grass-fed beef is one of the healthiest protein sources available.
Our beef is dry-aged a minimum of 14 days. Dry-aging produces unparalleled flavor and tenderness. We sell the entire beef, half or quarter. Beef is processed locally in a small, family-owned facility, where it is prepared, then cut to your specification and vacuum packaged.
We are a small family-owned and operated ranch. All the beef we sell comes from our ranch and we personally care for our land and our livestock. We direct market our products using pre-orders for beef due to the rapid selling out of meat and the limited availability. Please call, write, or email for availability and current pricing.

Twelve Springs Farm is a third generation farm located in Kansas City, Missouri. We raise pastured poultry, pork, and dairy goats.
Our mission is about granting animals their God-given rights, providing high quality food, and reconnecting people with their farmer. Although we do garden and raise produce, our main passion will always be with livestock. We believe animals raised on pasture, in the sun, produce eggs, meat and dairy higher in vitamins and minerals. Our animals never receive hormones, steroids or unnecessary antibiotics.
Our poultry are housed only at night, and during extreme inclement weather. The ducks and geese enjoy swimming in baby pools, while the turkeys and chickens chase bugs. Our pastured pigs are raised exclusively outdoors and are fed a non-gmo feed ration. They enjoy mud wallows, black walnuts, and apples from the orchard. Our dairy goats are fed a small grain allotment while in milk, and we practice milk sharing so our does always get to raise a kid. In addition to raising livestock, we also produce handmade soaps, and scented tarts made out of tallow.
Our pastured pork is processed at a facility that is both USDA inspected as well as audited by two third-party organizations. We want to ensure our pigs are treated with care from start to finish. We sell our pork by the quarter, half and whole, along with by the cut and in sampler packs in case you want a bit of variety.
As a small farm we have limited availability on some of our products. Please check our website to see what’s currently available, to learn more about us and our animals. If you have any questions, we are just a call or e-mail away.
