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 and half beef at 18 months to 2 1/2 years of age, delivered to quality USDA inspected meat processors in the surrounding area. Current pricing as of 5/17/2021 is $3.40 per pound of hanging weight, which averages 300 to 450 pounds.

For more information, or to order a beef call (281) 468-5881 or e-mail us at alanna@twisterridgeranch.com. We have the beef and the processing dates through 2022, so reserve your beef now to save your date and guarantee your freezer will not go empty.

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. Also notice we have freezer meat for sale at our farm and/or we will deliver it to Kansas City at a central location on the 21st of each month. This meat is sold at wholesale prices to allow you to try it out before purchasing a whole, half or quarter beef.

To a healthier you! Clark and Marylin McGinnis Thank You!

Cedar Ridge Beef Company is about taking the best care of our cattle and the land they live on. It is my desire and responsibility to take great care of my cattle during their life here at Cedar Ridge.

My cattle have a good life! We rotate them through many pastures during the year. Some pastures for a few days, some for a week during the spring flush of grass, some for a week during the hot days of summer, some for the new alfalfa growing for vitamins and health, and sometimes in the native pasture during the Fall. Grazing our cattle is one of the most important, yet time-consuming parts of raising grass finished beef, but I love to check the cattle while I move them and watch them for their growth and health. Rotating grassfed cattle among different pastures provides greater Omega-3 benefits as well as increased Vitamins A, D and E. They are also leaner and have less fat than traditionally raised cattle.

I never administer antibiotics for routine use or maintenance. They are only used for limited medical purposes, and we didn't use any this year for any reason. Some ranchers provide their cattle with hormones to increase weight more quickly; I would rather have my cattle gain weight naturally.

Beef is available by the whole, half, or quarter. You decide what cuts of beef you want and the size of the packages. The most common kinds of cuts are hamburger, sirloin, KC strip, filet and ribeye steaks, roasts, brisket, ribs, stew meat, and soup bones. Each package will be labeled with the cut and poundage. A $100 deposit is required to reserve your order, with balance due upon delivery.

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 re 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 50 miles south of Kansas City in Adrian, MO. We offer grass-fed grass-finished beef and lamb, forest-raised pork, pasture-raised chicken and turkey. 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 cattle and sheep. They are moved daily around our farm to new pastures and fresh forage.

The 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!

You can order all of our products online through our website: www.farrarfamilyfarmkc.com. Each month we offer community pick ups in Raymore, Lee’s Summit, Martin City, and Midtown KCMO. In the summer you can find us at the Lee’s Summit Farmers Market on Saturdays. As of 2020, we now offer weekly Home Delivery on Thursdays. We sell our products as individual pieces (1 steak, 1# sausage, 1 chicken, etc.) with no minimum order. We also offer bulk/wholesale options (half hog, quarter beef, etc.) or 6-month CSAs in the summer (May–October) and winter (November–April).

At Hedgewood Farms, our mission is to provide premium quality pastured beef, poultry, pork, and eggs, practicing humane and sustainable farming. We provide local families with real, healthy, and delicious whole food choices. Our products have no hormones or antibiotics and we never rely on chemical fertilizers, herbicides, or pesticides. Instead, we combine rotational grazing, poly-farming and strategic biodiversity to control weeds and soil quality.

Our predominantly Scottish Highland beef is 100% grass fed and finished. Our cattle graze year-round and we practice management intensive rotational grazing because we believe it is best for the cattle and the soil.

Pastured poultry and pork are fed 100% organic supplemental grains. Our poultry live in mobile chicken tractors and move across our pastures daily, feasting on cow patties, forage, and bugs while fertilizing our pastures at the same time. This makes for a more flavorful, better textured, healthier chicken for our customers. It builds the soil and benefits the ecology. Our hogs forage in the woods and are happy and healthy here.

Egg-laying hens are truly free-range and supplemental grain is 100% organic.

Hedgewood Farms is proud to be a vendor at the Lenexa, Kansas Farmers Market and sells individual cuts as well as sides of beef and pork. We offer a variety of options for poultry including whole chicken, 8-piece cut-up chicken and all the other retail cuts. We sell year-round.

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 Montrose, 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.

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!

We knew from the start that we wanted to be different than most, so we started brainstorming and setting our mindsets to becoming a ranch that would stand out and be distinct. The decisions we made then, and are still making today, have had a huge impact on our life, our animals, and our customers.

Currently, we manage 100+ head of cattle that cross-graze approximately 1,900 acres of grassland pastures. We practice regenerative farming and ranching for grass-eating animals. We want to mimic how animals lived in the wild before industrialized ranching took hold. We aim to boost microbial activity, carbon retention and water infiltration in soil. We practice sustainability by implementing managed grazing programs. We rotational graze our beef, chickens, and turkey. We are building wildlife friendly habitats, and bringing in beneficial insects, plants, and different animal species.

We love knowing where our food has come from and how our animals are treated and raised. We take pride in knowing our animals are well cared for and happy. Loved animals equal happy customers.

The future is bright here at Prairie Opal Ranch and we hope you will join us on our journey. We look forward to sharing our fresh products with you.

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.
