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.

non-GMO logo

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.

Where/how you purchase Cattle Tracks Beef? OSU/OKC Farmer’s Market the 1st Saturday of each month; Oklahoma Food Coop, www.oklahomafood.coop. Call ahead to visit the farm or to make a purchase.

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.

AGA logo

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 clark_duffy@cox.net.

​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.

For additional information please visit our website or contact us by e-mail or phone. Stay Slim–Be Healthy: Eat Grassfed Beef. Thanks, Clark.

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. 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.

Turkeys are also allowed to free-range during the day, often traveling more than a quarter mile from their roost to forage. They are available for the holiday season.

In 2010, pigs were added to the farm. Our hogs are also pastured and allowed to roam the tree rows near their pen, digging up roots and grass to supplement their diet. Pork is available by the cut, whole or half.

DFF also now carries goat and rabbit.

Farmer Brown Beef is located near Warrensburg, MO, about 50 miles southeast of Kansas City. Delivery is available within a 100 mile radius including the Kansas side of the Kansas City area.

Our family has been raising and eating grass fed Polled Herefords in a closed herd for about 50 years. Recently we have begun to give the cattle fresh grass daily through rotational grazing mimicking natural herd behavior. We do not use grain, antibiotics, or hormones. Our carbon footprint is quite small and through our rotational grazing management we expect will become highly carbon sequestering as the soil awakens with life and begins building topsoil naturally at a vigorous rate.

This healthy, environmentally and humanely raised 100% grass fed beef is available as wholes, halves or split halves. Meat is processed by Remer in Clinton and dry aged.

Farrar Family Farm: Our farm is in Adrian, MO about 50 miles south of Kansas City. We currently offer grass-fed grass-finished beef, pasture-raised chicken and turkey, and free-range eggs. Our goal is to provide you with wholesome and sustainable food, produced locally and grown naturally by mimicking nature's patterns the way God intended.

For our grass-fed, grass-finished beef we use rotational grazing. The cattle are moved daily around our farm to fresh pasture, which moves them away from yesterday’s by-product and onto fresh forage.

The chickens and turkeys are raised on our pastures and forage for grasses and bugs in addition to their non-GMO feed.  

Our egg layers follow behind the cattle in their pasture rotation cycle. This sanitizes the pasture while providing the chickens with a natural source of food along with their non-GMO feed. This cooperation between the cows and the chickens allows for the healthiest, most nutrient-rich eggs. We hope to add forest-raised hogs to our family farm soon.

Currently we make deliveries to the Kansas City area (Raymore, Lee’s Summit, Lenexa and the Plaza). We sell all of our products as individual pieces (1 steak, 1lb ground, 1 whole chicken, etc.) with no minimum order required, or we have bulk/wholesale options (half or quarter beef). We offer CSAs in the winter (Jan-April) and summer (June-September). 

Check our website for pictures and information on our methods. Email us for pricing and to place an order. Support local farms!

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." Because we have chosen to process our own broiler chickens, no saline injections, additives, or preservatives are ever a part of our broiler chicken final products! Our 2013 broiler harvest dates are (tentatively) May 11, June 29, and September 28. You will also discover that our pastured free-range hens’ eggs are better than anything you’ll find in the store! You won’t have to worry about hormones and antibiotics when you purchase our livestock and products.

We want to serve you only that which we would also enjoy eating. We believe you'll enjoy natural more than ever before when you also know that you're buying local, supporting local farms, and building lasting relationships that benefit everyone involved. Thank you for supporting your local farmers!

We direct market our products using pre-orders for meat birds and lamb and beef. Chicken broilers are set for on-farm site pick-up but we do sometimes offer delivery meeting sites for additional fees.

Janzen Family Farms produces 100% grass-fed beef from Angus adapted to the region. We raise them to meet or exceed criteria established by the USDA for the “grass (forage) fed marketing claim standard.” Our 100% grass-fed Angus are pastured every day. They are hormone-free; vaccines and potential medications are kept to a bare minimum. We reserve the use of antibiotics for special cases. They are slaughtered at a small, state-inspected, family-run meat locker near the farm.

We are moving toward more sustainability: Our cropland is now certified organic and our virgin prairie was certified organic in 2008 by the Oklahoma State Department of Agriculture. We use crop rotation, cover crops, organic fertilizer, rotational grazing, careful water management. We freshly stone-mill certified organic wheat on site.

To maintain financial viability, we also use our pre-existing conventional cattle-feeding facilities. Feedlot manure is used as fertilizer in our soil-building program. We keep our conventional cattle strictly separated from our direct-marketed 100% grass-fed animals.

You can purchase by the cut, in discounted “packs,” or in bulk. You can pick up, or we deliver in the Newton, Wichita, Emporia, Topeka and Lawrence areas. We sell at farmers markets and retailers.

I do not ship food products and would LOVE to have you come visit us at the farm to enjoy a little nature. I have added non-food items for sale via the website that I will ship.

As a person with multiple food allergies, I am dedicated to providing food that people like me can eat without fear:

  • Grass-fed/finished Belted Galloway Beef. (You buy a share in a live beef: whole, half, split-half. It is processed at a humane USDA facility where you pick up your meat.) Organ meat is sold separately, from the farm.
  • Aroniaberries, Blackberries, Elderberries, Persimmons, Rhubarb, Strawberries, Comfrey, and Osage Oranges (Hedge Apples) are available (weather, et al. allowing) in season… those dates are listed on the website.
  • Raw Honey available late summer.

All raised in sustainable ways without the ‘icides’ (insecticides, pesticides, herbicides).

I want to be your local farmer! Request an order form and then come visit the farm.

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.

Skyview Farm and Creamery is a diverse, family-owned farm located on 80 acres approximately 50 miles south of Kansas City. Our goal is to provide healthy, nutritious food for our family and yours. In a society that believes that bigger and faster is the only way to survive, we subscribe to a different philosophy of sustainable agriculture. We believe that happy animals are those living in an environment that allows them to become what their Creator intended. Animals living here are raised naturally, avoiding the use of antibiotics, hormones, growth stimulants or other chemicals.

The dairy cows and goats are the centerpiece of our farm. We produce delicious aged raw milk cheeses made with cow's milk, goat's milk, or a co-mingling of the two. As Kansas state law permits, we also sell fresh raw fluid milk from the farm. We also raise free-range eggs, and from time to time we have whole cow ground beef, pasture raised and whey fed pork, and grass fed lamb.

Stores and Markets: Our cheese is available at The Better Cheddar, Dean and Deluca, Renee Kelly's Local Harvest, The Farmhouse, Sommerset Ridge Vineyard and Winery, Fritz's Smoked Meats, Howard's Organic Market, and HyVee on 135th and Antioch, and Stateline Road in Prairie Village. We also attend the Waldo Farmer's Market and the Badseed Market. Carpool groups have organized to save on gas from the Kansas City area. Sign up for our weekly email newsletter from our website for a current list of products available.

Tallgrass Beef is a pure, natural product of the Great American Prairie. Founded by Bill Kurtis—journalist, rancher, conservationist, and proud owner of The Red Buffalo Ranch in Sedan, Kansas—Tallgrass Beef Company is raising cattle that roam in the open and graze on natural grasses rich in nutrients and high in anti-oxidants. The result is beef that's rich in Omega-3 fatty acids, high in Vitamin E, higher in beneficial unsaturated fat, and lower in saturated fat and cholesterol. You can taste the difference.

Tallgrass works with independent, family-owned farms and ranches to raise cattle in their grass-fed, grass-finished program. Their beef is sold in restaurants, select specialty food and grocery stores, and through their website.

Tallgrass Beef Company, 107 East Main, Sedan KS 67361. (877) 822-8283.
