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:

Auntie Annie’s Fields offers chicken that was raised on fresh pasture and certified organic feed. We’re picky about making sure they never run out of good greens to eat in their pasture. We are committed to caring for our chickens and their pasture using natural, non-toxic methods.

We offer whole birds and also packages of breast, drumstick, thigh and wings. In addition to the standard meat breed, we also offer a slower-growing breed of chicken that’s bred for good taste and vigor. All our chicken tastes different than what’s available in the stores because of the birds’ diet and lifestyle, and the slower growing chickens have even more taste and texture than the standard breed. Live laying hens may be seasonally available.

Our farm is located about 45 minutes south of Minneapolis. Call to arrange a time to visit if you like. You get a discount of 10 percent off whole birds if you buy them on farm. We’re also present at farmers markets in Minneapolis, and we do drop-offs of pre-ordered meat in the Twin Cities during the cold season. Check our website for the latest information.

Dry Creek Red Angus: Our family raises registered Red Angus and Hereford cattle.

Our cattle are bred to be low-input, easy-fleshing animals without any grain in their diets. They are on pasture all summer long and as late into winter as possible. This varies based on the crop rotation that year, pasture we have available, rain we got, etc. After this we feed hay that we harvested during the summer.

We take pride in producing quality grass fed beef and it is sold in quarters, halves and wholes, and by the pound.

If you have any questions about the beef or would like to visit the farm please give us a call!

The birth of Fockler Creek Farm was the result of two common stories: A father with diabetes, and a son who wanted to farm but saw no way in. Sound like a strange combination? Shouldn’t in this day and age. Through the experience of a serious case of diabetes (6 shots a day) being cured with whole foods, and a dream of farming becoming reality with the use of innovative and unconventional techniques, Fockler Creek Farms took flight! Brian the previous farmer-to-be, and Scott the cured diabetic, along with their wives and children now raise beyond organic pastured pork, grass-finished beef and lamb, and pastured poultry.

Fockler Creek Farm’s mission is “To implement and develop systems of agriculture that result in solvent farmers, sane people, and sound ecosystems.” Since we are all part of the whole, the creation, the ecosystem, or whatever other term you use to describe it, our mission directs us to provide you with food that nourishes and heals. We're also very passionate about this as we have seen the difference it has made in our own lives. We’re also very passionate about promoting farmer-centric methods of agriculture and ways of farming that affirm the value of life.  

For more detailed and technical information check us out on our website, focklercreek.com. We look forward to connecting you with the best our farm has to offer!

Fruitful Seasons Dairy is a family operated small farm located near Alexandria, MN.

We are providing raw milk cheeses crafted from our small herd of Jersey cows. Our dairy is seasonal so the cows calve in the Spring. We move them to a fresh strip of grass several times a day. The cows also have free choice Thorvin Kelp and Redmond’s Real salt.

The pastures are maintained to optimal quality without chemical fertilizers or herbicides. When pasture season is over, most of the cows are dried up for the winter and we stop making cheese until the next spring.

We make our cheese from unpasteurized, fresh, clean milk so that all the beneficial properties of the milk are still intact. The cheese is ready after aging 60 days. We do not treat the cows with antibiotics or growth hormones. The left-over whey is given to the pigs which are on pasture.

Currently most of the cheese is sold locally but we can ship it directly also. Please check our website for available varieties and other seasonal products like eggs, pork and beef.

Goettl Grove LLC is a small, family-run farmstead established in 2016. We started raising chickens to allow our family access to quality poultry. We produce:

  • Pastured Poultry: whole birds frozen, unless prearranged for fresh
  • Woodlot Pork: whole and half pre-orders

We do not medicate our birds and they are on pasture and moved daily to fresh greens. 

We also offer woodlot raised pork by the whole or the half. Our pork is non-medicated raised from birth on farm and given a barley ration to give an enhanced flavored pork that you can’t get from the store. They also get a wide variety of plants, roots and nuts available as they forage through our grove.

We offer an early season pre-order bulk chicken sale, which are available in packages three times throughout the summer, rather than all at once.

We are located outside St. Peter, a short 20-minute drive north of Mankato.

The Grass Fed Cattle Company is a small cooperative of local family farms, located within 150 miles of the Twin Cities. GFCC farmers are committed to naturally raising healthy animals without the use of antibiotics or added hormones.

Our cattle are 100% pasture raised and finished. We use the term "beyond organic" to describe our sustainable systems of beef production, which we believe are capable of transcending the standards affixed to foods and processes currently categorized by the term "organic."

We sell 100% grass fed beef by the eighth, quarter, half and whole directly to people all year round who desire a natural, healthy, and affordable product. We also offer a Beef CSA option where people who don't have a deep freezer can pick up a few different times throughout the year. The GFCC is conveniently located on 50th Street & France Avenue in Edina. Once an order is placed, we schedule a convenient time for customers to have their beef personally delivered right to their vehicle.

Our cattle are processed at a USDA inspected, family run facility, Lorentz Meats, in Cannon Falls, Minnesota. Each cut of meat is vacuum-sealed, frozen, and labeled with specific cut and weight information. Ground beef comes wrapped in 1 lb packages.

Orders can be placed online, by email or by phone.

Harmony Valley Farm has been dedicated to growing the highest quality certified organic vegetables for over 40 years. Our farm, located in beautiful southwest Wisconsin, is co-owned by Richard de Wilde and Andrea Yoder. While our focus is on growing vegetables, animals are also an important part of our farm and help us maintain hillside pasture areas not suitable for vegetable production.

Our vegetables and meat are distributed throughout the Midwest through our CSA program. We offer CSA share delivery in the following areas: Minneapolis and St. Paul, MN; Madison, WI and the greater Madison area; La Crosse, WI; Onalaska, WI, Viroqua, WI. 

We raise certified organic, grass-fed beef and pastured pork. Our beef cattle are rotationally grazed on pastures in the spring, summer and fall. During the winter we feed organic hay harvested during the summer. Our pigs spend their days exploring the wooded hillsides, returning to their home base at the end of the day to enjoy vegetable scraps from the packing shed. In addition, we supplement their diet with a blend of organic grain.

We choose to raise our animals in an environment where they can exhibit their natural behaviors and characteristics. We treat them gently and with respect so they do not live in fear of human touch or presence. This creates a much more pleasant environment for them to live in and allows us to work amongst them more safely. 

We offer a variety of beef and pork packages for delivery in the months of May, November and December. All of our meat is cut and freshly frozen just ahead of delivery.

Our farm is committed to bringing you the healthiest and finest quality 100% grass-fed beef in the area with all the benefits it can provide. Our grass-fed cattle are never given antibiotics or growth hormones. We do not use insecticides or commercial fertilizers.

We use reliable methods of sustainable production, high quality genetics and pasture grazing. This method provides our cattle with a lower stress environment in order to produce the best tasting, most tender and nutritious meat.

Our cattle are raised in a semi-wild state and have free range on our pastures. We feed and finish all of our beef on fresh-grown perennial natural grasses. We are small enough to intimately care for our land as well as large enough to raise herds of premium grass-fed beef. Our beef is harvested when the animals are ready. The beef is processed in a state inspected facility; it is dry-aged fourteen days, butchered into individual cuts, vacuum packed and frozen.

Beef is available for purchase year round. When you purchase beef from HD Beef Works, you can select from smaller packages of traditional cuts or purchase a quarter or half and work directly with the processor to determine your cuts.

La Finca is located on a quiet county road in East Central, MN, about 100 miles north of the Twin Cities Metro Area and 50 miles south of Duluth.

Our forty acre farm is a mix of fields, forest, and wetlands where we grow 5 acres of vegetables for our CSA and raise chickens on pasture in portable hoophouses. As they range across our fields, the chickens have access to our locally milled organic chicken feed and fresh water. Unlike chickens raised in confinement, our chickens spend their days pecking away at various plant species and insects, taking dust baths, or resting in the shade. Their high quality diet coupled with the time they spend ranging in our fields produces an exceptionally flavorful bird.

The pasture-raised chicken share consists of 6 frozen chickens, which are delivered in 4 installments during the late summer and fall. The tentative dates for the chicken share delivery are 7/30, 9/15,10/15, and 10/30; each delivery includes 3 frozen chicken halves weighing 7–9 lbs.

Lakeside Prairie Farm specializes in 100% grass-fed, grass-finished beef and pastured pork.

We seek to produce beef and pork that is healthy for the land and healthy for people. We raise our animals in a way that doesn't compromise our soil, air, and water; the health of the consumer or the farmer; the health of our rural community; wildlife; nor the robust flavor of well raised meat.

What sets us apart from other farms who are sustainably raising meat is our commitment to restoring the native ecosystems on our farm and using these as the primary source of forage for our pastured animals. That means that our cattle are rotationally grazed on native tallgrass prairie plants and our pigs rotated through our oak savanna. This provides for the coexistence of a great number of wildlife species (think pollinators and grassland birds) with our cattle and pigs.

We do not expose our animals to pesticides, GMOs, chemical fertilizer, artificial growth hormones, antibiotics, or byproduct feeds.

We sell meat by the cut, quarter, half, and whole, with seasonal availability. Our meat is processed at locally owned and inspected butcher shops.

To purchase, contact Bryan by phone or email or fill out the order form on our website here.

McCann's True Cost Farm offers chickens, eggs, lamb, pork and sausage and is dedicated to raising the best tasting food possible. The fine flavor and texture of our products is a result of our focus on quality.

We use healthy, genetically diverse plants and animals. They grow in natural, pleasant living conditions and are treated with care and respect. True Cost Farm is proud to raise food according to what is true and what is right. No shortcuts.
Unfortunately, most producers focus on quantity, not quality. Their methods produce food that's deceptively cheap – but there are many hidden costs.

Conventional farming practices churn out bland, uninspiring foods which have dire and expensive consequences for individual and public health, the quality of our water, air and soil, animal well being and much more.

One of our goals is to repair the soil on our property and to continue to refine and improve our production practices. Each animal we raise reduces the number of animals raised in less humane conditions while providing you with a tasty and more nutritious meal. The products you purchase from us are a big help towards building our sustainable farming business.

McCluskey Brothers put steak in your burger. How? We're grassfed beef producers, and when we grind our burger, we grind all the cuts but two (ribeye, tenderloin). Think ground sirloin plus. It's a burger beyond anything you've ever tasted.

Just as important, our farm is committed to making the planet a better place. We rotationally graze our cattle, frequently moving the livestock from pasture to pasture. These frequent moves – or “rotations” - give our pastures a period of rest and regrowth between grazings. Roots grow deeper, soils recycle more carbon, plants grow stronger, less rainwater runs off resulting in less soil erosion, and biodiversity is enhanced. All with the help of cattle doing what nature has always intended: graze grass.

We believe you have the right to know the farming practices that produce your food. Different practices yield different results. We choose rotational grazing for a reason. Continuous grazing - giving cattle continuous access to the same pasture for the entire season - actually damages the pasture, weakens the plants and diminishes soil health. Honored to be among the first farms in the country certified Real Organic (2018), we're also USDA certified organic (certifying agency is ICS). And 100% grassfed at Shillelagh Glen Farms means no grain. Ever.

We're the 4th generation on our family farm, a farm founded on the belief everything is connected...

sunshine ↔ soils ↔ plants ↔ cattle ↔ our farm ↔ food ↔ your family table ↔ our planet.

And that's the way we farm.

We're growing wholesome, healthy, flavorful food with sunshine, grass, and the rich organic soils of Shillelagh Glen Farms. Try McCluskey Brothers' grassfed beef and cheese, and maple syrup. Inquiries about beef shares (quarters or halves) welcome.

One click brings 100% grassfed goodness direct to your door. Yes, we ship!

At Nelson Grass Farm, we pasture-raise pigs, eggs (laying hens), chickens, turkeys and rabbits.

We farm from the soil up. We care for the soil as it is a living thing. We use regenerative farming practices to ensure the plants in our pastures have a rest period, we do not use chemicals that kill the living creatures in the soil, we use nature to help fertilize and maintain the grasses we grow. When our soil is healthy, our plants will be healthy and then the animals that eat our healthy plants will be healthy. We benefit from eating our healthy animals, they are full of nutrients that came from our soil.

Our animals have had no chemicals, GMOs or antibiotics digested from either the soil, plants, injections or other feed eaten. All animals are moved frequently to fresh pasture, are forage-fed and fed non-soy supplemental feed if biologically necessary. We are truly passionate about regenerative farming and using holistic practices at Nelson Grass Farm.

We currently have delivery set up in the St. Paul / Minneapolis area. We will be delivering to St. Cloud and Duluth areas in 2017. The farm is also open for visitors and to pick up products.

Pedelty Lincoln Reds offer a breed of beef cattle known for their great taste. Lincoln Reds have won numerous taste tests in England. Part of the reason Lincoln Reds are so palatable is because they fatten so easily on grass. Also, the meat is tender because the animals are quiet and do not excite easily.

Because the Lincoln Reds are a rare breed we have only limited availability and reservations are taken for mixed quarters or sides to be picked up in October.

Shepherd Song Farm raises 100% grass-fed lamb and goat meat. We believe pasture-raised is absolutely, without a doubt, better for the animals, better for the environment, better for your health...which is better for you! We make a commitment to you to NOT use pesticides on our land and to use NO animal by-products, antibiotics or hormones. Our lambs and goats grow naturally on Wisconsin meadows. The cool northern summers of the upper Midwest produce outstanding pastures producing premium, lean lamb and goat in a healthy environment.

Our livestock spend their days in the open air and sunshine grazing our lush, green pastures. Our young stock spend the majority of their time safe with their mothers within the protective flock learning to choose from diverse forage. We do not confine our animals to stalls, on concrete or in feedlots.They routinely carry out their natural behaviors such as grazing, browsing, lactating and exploring their environment as appropriate to their species. Quality of life for our animals is one of our main values.

We are a small family farm. We use sustainable and holistic farming practices that improve the soil, increase biodiversity, and are beneficial to our local community's environment. In practice this means what we take out of the environment we put back in, so land and resources such as water, soil and fertility can be replenished and are available to future generations.

Our products are USDA inspected, vacuum-packed for quality, and meet high standards for freshness, tenderness and flavor. Individual cuts or family value boxes can be purchased year round. Religious requirements can be met such as halal certification.

Snake River Farm: Bison, Beef, Hogs, Horses, Farm Tours. Open all year, but please call for appointment.

We raise bison, beef and a few hogs for sale direct to consumers, normally by the ¼. We pasture raise all of our animals in a natural setting. The Snake River winds through our 220 acres for almost a mile creating a unique landscape of native prairie, oak savanna, wooded lowlands, wet meadows and tamarack swamp.

Bison and beef are grass fed only. Our bison herd numbers less than 50 and our beef herd less than 20. We seasonally rotate the herds through open and wooded pastures as is best for the animals and the land. We raise a few hogs each year because they fit in well.

Meat animals are humanely harvested and then processed in a state inspected facility. We use no hormones or antibiotics. We tame and train mustang horses that we adopt from the BLM as yearlings. We sell mustangs gentled or trained to ride and drive.

Miles of trails, a one-room schoolhouse, farm museum and wildlife. We welcome visits and tours especially educational groups.

StoneBridge Beef is a sustainable farm-ranch selling Prairie-Fed Beef direct from our farm, at farmers markets, and on our website. We are located near Long Prairie, MN. Our farm is blessed with nutrient-dense soils, a diverse salad bar of grasses, and humanely raised Devon-Angus cattle. The flavor of our beef is bright, robust, and tender—never dull or fatty.

Our specialty is halves, quarters (split halves), and 20-pound Variety Packs with our most popular steaks, roasts, burger, stew meat, bratwurst and ribs. We also sell Burger Packs with 20 pounds of our best "whole cow" burger. For enhanced flavor, we dry age steaks and roasts for 14 days.

Prairie-Fed Beef is 100% grass-fed and grass finished. We avoid hormones, pesticides, herbicides, insecticides, antibiotics, commercial fertilizers, and byproduct feeds on our farm. In addition, we consider our management plan "beyond organic" because we provide holistic care and concern for our cattle, our farm, our community, and our ecosystem.

Our beef is skillfully processed in small batches by Riverside Meats in Long Prairie, MN, a family operated, USDA inspected facility. Your decision to purchase Prairie-Fed Beef is an important statement in support of the "fresh and local foods" movement.

StoneBridge Beef sells at the Alexandria, Brainerd-Baxter, and Little Falls Area Farmers Markets. See our website under Contact Us for maps of these locations and other details.

Tamarack Lamb & Wool is a family farm specializing in producing outstanding quality grassfed lamb. Located in East Central Minnesota, the short, cool northern summers result in exceptionally high quality native clover pastures that are the mainstay of our lambing and lamb-rearing program.

Tamarack utilizes breeds selected for their ability to turn pasture into a premium quality eating experience. While the Dorset is known as the "Angus" of sheep breeds in the US, the Ile de France is the premier market lamb sire in France known for muscling, with excellent tenderness and flavor. Lambs are butchered at a small, immaculate local shop where the lambs are taken care of promptly and with minimal stress.

Pasture-fed lamb is available seasonally in November and December. At this time, all orders must be picked up at the farm; no shipping is available. Tamarack is an easy 90-minute trip north of Minneapolis/St. Paul on I-35, located just 2 miles off the interstate south of Hinckley, Minnesota. For price list, please visit our website.

At Together Farms, we believe in sustainable farming and lovingly caring for all our animals. It seems the more we learn, the more we want to grow our own food. But without you, the customer, our small farm dream could never become a reality.

AWA logo

First, we search for the best-tasting foods we can find - typically means heritage breeds that tend to grow slower than their high-production counterparts where taste and personality are ignored. We raise Tamworth & Large Blacks (swine), Duclair ducks, assorted heritage turkeys, White Park (beef) cattle, Tunis & Leicaster Longwool sheep, and Freedom Ranger meat and other heritage egg chickens

All of our animals are in managed grazing systems. Things we don’t use on the animals: antibiotics, growth hormones, medicated feed or chemical de-wormers. In our finished products, there are no: nitrates/ites, MSG, preservatives, colorings, etc. Minerals and supplements, you ask? All absolutely natural (e.g., apple cider vinegar) so you know you are getting a nutrient-dense product. If our soils are not healthy, our animals will not be healthy. We are also working towards being totally free from soy-based feeds. [Check out Weston A. Price's Soy Alert page to learn more about soy and why we care.]

We are Certified Naturally Grown and Animal Welfare Approved and we are now out of our 3rd transitional year to be certified organic. We are working toward full certification by the end of 2013. The beef and lamb are 100% grassfed and approved by the American Grassfed Association.

We also offer “S3” Soap - an old-fashioned, cold processed lard soap! We use only all natural ingredients - check out our website or our Etsy page (www.etsy.com/shop/StephsSuperSwineSoaps).

Meat is available in wholes, halves, and CSA shares. Email/call for bundle options, pricing and drop-offs.
