At Twister Ridge Ranch is located 10 miles east of Vinita, Oklahoma in the beautiful rolling hills of northeast Oklahoma’s Green Country, not far from the Kansas, Arkansas and Missouri borders. We are a second and third generation, family-owned ranch raising grass-fed Aberdeen Angus beef. We raise our beef naturally without using hormones, antibiotics, or grains. 

Aberdeen Angus is a Scottish breed of small beef cattle that are well proportioned with a more compact, smaller frame size. They offer all the advantages of Angus cattle but in a smaller package; heavily muscled, quality carcass, with typically larger rib eyes per 100 pounds of body weight than the larger Angus. 

We offer whole beef at two years of age, delivered to a quality USDA inspected meat processor near Big Cabin, Oklahoma. Current pricing as of 3/27/2018 is $3.40 per pound of hanging weight, averaging 300 to 450 pounds. For more information or to order a beef call (281) 468-5881 or e-mail us at alannafrank@reagan.com.

At C&M McGinnis Grass-Fed Beef, we have the right genetics with our Black Angus breed to make great quality beef. They are moderately-framed, large-gutted cattle that have had no hormones, antibiotics, wormers or grain.

We handle our calves in a low-stress environment, which helps make the meat more tender. The calves are rotated every 1–2 days during the grass-growing season. They are supplemented with alfalfa hay and a variety of annual crops including oats, rye and clover. Extra effort is put in these calves to make then as healthy and tasty as possible.

The calves from our closed herd are raised on our farm from birth to processing time.

Transparency, sustainability, the greater good, right values and being authentic are our core values. God created the cattle and gave us the privilege to take care of them and we take that seriously.

Farm visits are welcomed. Only 55 miles south of Kansas City. For more information, find us at our website or on business Facebook or call Clark at (913) 757-3997 or Marylin at (913) 522-7906.

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. 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.

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 is located 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 regenerative 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 out on pasture in mobile coops. We move them every morning to a clean area of pasture where they can scratch and range for grasses and bugs in addition to their non-GMO feed.

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!

Our egg layers scratch and roam the pastures for food along with their free-choice non-GMO feed. This cooperation between the chickens and land allows for the healthiest pastures and the most nutrient-rich eggs.

Each month we make deliveries to Raymore, Lee’s Summit, South KC, and KCMO. In the summer you can find us at the Lee’s Summit Farmers Market. We sell our products as individual pieces (1 steak, 1# sausage, 1 chicken, etc.) with no minimum order. We offer bulk/wholesale options (half hog, quarter beef, etc.) or 6-month CSAs in the summer (May–October) and winter (November–April). Check out our website for prices, pictures, and information on our farming methods. Email us to place an order and follow us on Facebook or Instagram to see what’s happening around the farm!

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.

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.

The MJ Ranch is a 670-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 or antibiotics.

Health benefits of grass fed beef are awesome! It is low in saturated fat (comparable to bison) and high in Omega 3s, CLA, Vitamin A and E, Beta Carotene, etc. Check it out! This nutritious beef can be purchased at the Community Mercantile in Lawrence.

We personally sell sides from June through December, by hanging weight. Orders are taken by phone year-round to assure beef availability.

Gourmet ground beef is available all year directly from the ranch. Free delivery, at a central location, in Lawrence once a month—with orders of 10 pounds or more! We take a young market steer, keep out only the loin and rib, and grind the rest into deluxe hamburger. Call, See, and Taste!

Moore Ranch is a family ranch in Southwest Kansas which produces grass-fed longhorn beef, pastured poultry, and eggs.

Our 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.

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.

Y Knot Farm and Ranch raises grass fed, grass finished beef along with growing organic produce and organic wheat and forage. Our beef is raised on organic pastures and most of their feed is grown organically on our ranch, but they are not organic.

The Belted Galloway, also known as Belties, is a rare heritage breed. This beef is known for a couple very different attributes vis-a-vis conventional beef. They genetically have no back fat, as an extra very fine coat gives them the warmth they need. This means the meat is extra lean (about 40% fewer calories than standard beef). They have close to 90% less trans fats, cholesterol, and fat calories than regular beef. On the other hand they are high in protein, omega 3 and 6, and calcium. They are also very tender and the meat does not have a "gamy" taste. 

The reason they are so rare is that they grow slowly (steers take twice as long to raise as the standard commercial breeds). That and their smaller frame means they do not work in a commercial setting. We do not use any hormonal implants or antibiotics raising our beef, but rather let them grow as nature intended. 

The Financial Times of London declared the Belted Galloway beef the best beef available in the UK. However, the limited number in the United States means we cannot find any restaurants that sell their meat. With 50 cows, our Y Knot Farm and Ranch, we were the second largest registrant of Belties in the US in 2017.
