The following farms and ranches have certified that they meet Eatwild's criteria for producing grassfed meat, eggs and dairy products. Contact them directly for additional information or to buy their products:


Brookshire Farm produces grass finished, dry aged beef, pastured veal, and meat goats. Our animals are fed on open pastures without growth supplements, growth stimulants, antibiotics, or other synthetic additives.

At Brookshire Farm we are committed to our small farm's tradition of sustainable agriculture. We are the 6th continuous generation to live on the land and in the farmhouse which was built in the 1840s. We value our tradition that safeguards the environment and promotes animal welfare while producing food that is nutritious, wholesome, and delicious.

You can preorder your beef whole, half, or as a split half. (A split half is half of a front quarter and half of a hindquarter, which yields a selection of cuts from both.) Seasonally we sell cuts of veal by the pound and whole goats. Email or call to participate in our next offering. For more information visit our website.

Brookshire Farm, Anne and Ben Blanchet, 8916 Brookshire Road, Abbeville LA 70510. (337) 893-5115.

Butterfield Farm is a small, family owned and operated farm. We raise and market hormone-free, grass fed beef directly to the public using the community sustained agriculture (CSA) model. Our dream is to provide a healthy product that the public will enjoy, educational opportunities for the public through "Agri-tourism" and to expose our customers to our "Family" way of life. You and your family are invited to come join us on the farm and learn about what we do.

Our cattle are raised here on our pastures and eat only our carefully grown grasses. We do not treat them with growth hormones or additives.  Butterfield Farm cattle roam freely, live stress-free lives, and are never brought to a feedlot. We use sustainable farming practices that support our local community, reduce pollution, and fortify the land.

We have a limited amount of beef shares available sold on a first-come, first-served basis. One share consists of one quarter of beef sold as a split half, just over 100 pounds. You may purchase as many shares as you like. Your beef will be processed into retail cuts and wrapped at a state licensed facility and available for pick up or local delivery at the end of the season.

You may contact us by phone, email, or use our website to reserve your share(s) using Paypal!

Hollywood Livestock is a sustainable multi-species operation in Zachary, LA. All of the meats provided by Hollywood Livestock are from animals that are born, pastured, raised, processed, and packaged in Louisiana.

Our goals are to improve and repair our soils using careful practices. Under our care none of our meat producing animals have been injected with or administered any hormones or antibiotics. Our beef cattle are strictly raised on forages in the pasture and are never fed grain or animal byproducts. Our pork is only heritage breeds and pasture-raised from birth, they are also fed a supplemental grain feed ration. These animals are raised in a pastured environment that is as close to natural as possible. Also, we believe in handling all animals in a manner that is humane and appropriate for human consumption.

We are taking deposits for our weekly pastured eggs list. Sheep, Turkeys, Poultry, and ducks are in the future!

Shady Grove Ranch produces the best quality pasture-raised meats and eggs you can find in the East Texas and Shreveport area. Our products include 100% grass-fed beef, soy-free, non-GMO pasture-raised pork, and truly pastured soy-free poultry, including whole chickens, Thanksgiving turkeys, and fresh eggs.

We use old-fashioned breeds that are hardy and produce well on a natural diet. We focus on utilizing rotational management, “buffet-style” mineral supplementation, total avoidance of chemicals and drugs, and fully finishing our animals on appropriate diets. This means that cows only eat grass, and pigs, chickens, and turkeys forage freely and are supplemented with non-genetically-modified, non-soy grains. Our animals never remain on a fixed patch of ground indefinitely—they are moved regularly, according to season and herd size, to ensure good nutrition and avoidance of disease and parasites.

We only process animals that are nice and fat to ensure amazing flavor, excellent tenderness, and plenty of marbling. Our meat is not extremely lean like some grass-based producers. We believe that most of the goodness about grass-fed beef and pastured pork and chicken is in the fat, so we ask our butcher not to trim, and we select animals for slaughter that are in good body condition—not too fat, not too slim. Animal protein with a moderate amount of fat is tastier, more filling, and easier to digest than leaner meat. Our animals are bred for efficient pasture-fattening and they eat diets appropriate to their species The fat on our animals is buttery, flavorful, and rich. It is nothing like greasy, filmy corn-fed beef fat! And you have never tried a real pork chop until you have one from our Large Black pigs. Caution: After tasting Shady Grove Ranch products, you may never be able to eat store-bought meat again!

We sell by-the-cut and in bulk. We welcome visitors to our operation so that you can learn where your food comes from and know how it is really produced. We offer farm tours and encourage you to sign up for our semi-monthly newsletter to receive information (but never spam!) about our specials, practices, events, and more.
