They are heavily muscled, and have a quality carcass and 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 quality USDA-inspected meat processors in the surrounding area. Current pricing as of 3/18/2020 is $3.40 per pound of hanging weight, averaging 300 to 450 pounds.

Hello, and Welcome to Attadale Farm. We are Steve and Sandy Fahsbender. We raise 100% Local Grass-Fed Beef, Pastured Pork, Grass-Fed Lamb and Honey Bees on an old Amish farm near LaPlata, Missouri.
Our grass-fed cows are the Galloway breed. We selected Galloway because they score high on carcass evaluation tests for tenderness, juiciness and flavor. With big stomachs, they do an excellent job of converting our pasture's seven varieties of mixed grasses and legumes into tasty, tender beef. We do not feed them anything except our pasture and/or alfalfa. We do not give them hormones, antibiotics, grain or grain byproducts. Our cows are humanely raised. We offer our beef by the individual cut, 1/4, 1/2 and whole.
Our pasture-raised Hereford hogs are heritage and are rotationally grazed through our timber to enjoy our naturally abundant grasses, vines, berries, bushes, leaves, roots, acorns, hickory nuts, walnuts and whatever else is on their menu. If we need to supplement their diet, it is with a certified non-GMO ration. Our pork is marbled and delicious. You will not be disappointed. We give them no hormones or antibiotics. They, too, are humanely raised. Our pork is available in 1/2, whole and by individual cut.
Our sheep are grass-fed and graze along side our Galloway cows. There is safety in numbers. Grazing sheep and cows together also help control harmful parasites in the pastures. We give them no hormones or antibiotics. Our sheep are humanely raised and the great tasting lamb is available by the 1/2, whole or individual cut.
Our bees help with all the pollinating of pasture and timber flowers as well as provide us with great pure raw honey.
Please visit us on line, call, or better yet, stop by. You should always examine your product source to confirm that you are getting what you think you are. Hope to see you soon!

all natural, hormone and antibiotic free animals. We use no additives
or preservatives in our broiler chickens or meat rabbits.
Our broilers are available in June/July and again in September/October.

tractor is moved to fresh grass twice daily. They are fed a supplement
of various grains mixed with Fertrell's Poultry Nutribalancer to ensure
proper trace minerals and optimal health. We also offer eggs from
free-range hens that thrive on a diet of grass and bugs and whatever
they can find. They sleep in permanent buildings and are
allowed to roam during the day.

with fresh cut grass or hay. The rabbits are available as pets or meat,
already packaged. They are available in spring and fall, please
call for pricing and availability.
Cedar Cove Farm is also a Fertrell dealer and we
believe in returning to the ground what we take out of it. This is accomplished
through Fertrell's natural and organic certifiable soil enhancing products
and fertilizers, but mostly our continued education in the area of pasture
management. We offer various food supplements for the health of your
animals and, ultimately, you.
We believe in supporting local agriculture and staying
small, building relationships with our customers. We are always learning
and seeking advice with a goal of having quality pasture, land and animals.

Covered-L Farm has been in the cattle business since 1992 and raising 100% grassfed beef since 2007. We farm in an environmentally friendly manner by using no antibiotics, pesticides, herbicides or growth hormones. We're not organic, just close. We really enjoy providing flavorful, healthy, nutritious clean beef to mid-Missouri customers while maintaining sustainability standards.
Our 100% grassfed beeves are primarily Red Angus/Hereford with some full-blood South Polls. They graze high-quality pastures throughout the year along with excellent hay when necessary. To insure you receive the quality beef you expect, we test a small portion of each beeve for tenderness and flavor. Anything not meeting Sherry's high standards becomes ground beef so only the best cuts are available for our customers. Our prices for our 100% grassfed beef are lower than almost all other grassfed farms.
Halves, split halves and whole beeves are available year around. Individual packages of our USDA inspected beef are in both Clovers Natural Markets and the West Broadway and Nifong Hy-Vee stores, all in Columbia MO. Packages are also available at the farm and in Columbia during our Wednesday deliveries. Sorry, but we do not ship.

None of our animals are treated with hormones or steroids; antibiotics are used rarely and only as needed. They are treated with love and care. Our pastures are free of chemical fertilizer and grow lush on the rotational grazing system. Our own well supplies plenty of fresh water for the animals.
Our beef is available in individual cuts or by halves or quarters. Pork also is available in cuts or halves. Chicken is available in wholes, cut-ups, and parts, as well as livers, gizzards, hearts, and feet (excellent for making bone broth!). Turkeys are packaged whole. Eggs are also available.
Our meat is available locally at our farm near Hardy, at the Spring River Health Connection in Ash Flat, and at the ASU Farmers’ Market in Jonesboro (May thru October). Through the winter, we also meet buyers every other week in Jonesboro, to be available year-round.

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!

At the Garrett Family Farm, we strive to offer our community non-genetically modified pasture-raised pork, chicken, and chicken eggs alternatives.
We believe in raising all natural, hormone- and antibiotic-free animals. We use no additives or preservatives in our animals. Our broilers are available periodically from spring through fall. We encourage customers to make future orders however large or small, and we also regularly attend several of the local farmers’ markets including: Carthage, Webb City, and Freeman markets.
The broilers are raised on grass beginning at the third week of life in the protection of a "chicken tractor." The tractor is moved to fresh grass daily. They are fed a NON-GMO supplement of various grains for optimal health. We also offer eggs from pasture-raised hens that thrive on a diet of grass and bugs and whatever they can find. They sleep in a large mobile hay wagon coop and are allowed to roam during the day within their mobile fencing which is moved as needed to sustain a clean and healthy life.
It is extremely important to us that our customers and their families know they are always welcome to visit our farm to establish a connection with their healthy, natural food. We believe in supporting our local community and staying small, building relationships with our customers. We are continuing to learn and are seeking advice with a goal of having quality pasture, land, and animals.

Giles Ranch is a small farm located in Southwest Missouri, just north of the Joplin/Carthage area. We are dedicated to raising all-natural, grass-fed beef and lamb. By all-natural, we mean that our animals are not given steroids, hormones, antibiotics, medicated feed, or any other performance enhancers. We also do not use any chemicals, pesticides or herbicides on our pastures. While not certified organic, we are organic in practice. We strive to give all of the animals a fresh, healthy, stress-free environment.
Our main goal is to be good stewards of the land and animals that God has so graciously provided and blessed us with. We truly believe that by producing all natural grass-fed products, we can help improve people's health and lives by providing them with a healthy alternative to the factory raised products you find at most grocery stores.

Gladhour Farm is a family farm
in north central Missouri. The farming plan is sustainable
agriculture: row crops are certified organic; veal and beef
are raised naturally on cow's milk and forage with no added
hormones or subtherapeutic antibiotics; and heritage breeds
(Irish Dexter Cattle and Babydoll Southdown Sheep) are raised
for breeding stock and enjoyment.
Historic landmarks, roadways, equipment, buildings,
and plants are valued to give visitors glimpses of times gone by and
current opportunities for simplicity, and are a highlight on the farm.
A pair of Dexter oxen are currently in training (a new adventure). When
you arrange to pick up your meat order, you can make a visit and watch
Gladhour Farm’s natural beef and veal come
from pure Dexters and Dexter crosses, so the cuts are smaller than typical.
Some say the tenderness and flavor are subtly special and unusually delightful.
Shipping for GF meats may become a reality in the future. For now, totally
grass-finished beef and natural veal can be ordered ahead for a completely
custom-done whole-animal order, or can be bought by the half or sample
package by contacting GF with your order.
The meat is USDA-inspected, dry-aged, packaged and
frozen. Pick up is done by arranging to meet at the locker plant. With
your GF meat purchase, you are helping to sustain a farming community
by supporting both a small, local, family-run meat processing business
and Gladhour Farm family farm.

Grand View Pastures started
as a family passion—a passion to raise our own food in the
healthiest way we can, with the least impact on mother earth.
We wanted to know how our food is raised, what it was fed,
where did their water come from, and what medicine, drugs
or hormones did it consume during its life?
Not only did we want to know everything about our
food, but we wanted to control the whole process, so we bought a ranch
in the heart of the Missouri Ozark—clean air, fresh water and
We started Grand View Pastures for ourselves and
now have extra grass fed, young (10–14 month old) Angus beef cattle
we can sell to you. All the cattle are raised using a rotational
grazing method, NO HORMONES, no cramped feed lots, no antibiotics,
no stress, no GMO feeds!
We are not in the meat business!
The Johnson Family wants to sell you a
live animal (1/2 and 1/4 ownerships are also available.) We will
give you a list of USDA certified butchers in our area where you can
make your own arrangements for dry aging, butchering and shipping, no
matter where you live. I will send you a beef chart and help you to study
up on your cuts.
We have 25 young beef cattle that we will sell this
year and suggest that they be butchered anytime after August 2009 at
about 600 to 700 pounds.
Call us and let us help you stock your freezer with
grass fed young beef.

Green Hills Harvest produces organic
milk from Jersey-cross cows. Owners Kerry and Barb
Buchmayer say that a few customers have wondered if their
skim and 2% milk is mislabeled because it tastes so creamy.
The Buchmayers feed their cows a limited amount
of organic grain to supplement the fresh pasture. (The cows get about
1/3 to 1/2 as much grain as is typically fed in a standard dairy.) The
milk is hormone and pesticide free. Green Hills Harvest milk products
will soon be available in select stores in the Kansas City area.

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.

Highway H Highland Cattle Ranch supplies the highest quality grass fed Highland beef to conscientious consumers. They are raised on our farm in northern Laclede County Missouri and are never fed any antibiotics, hormones, steroids, animal byproducts, or GMOs.
Highlanders are a heritage breed of cattle that have not been altered genetically, and as such, they produce a premium quality beef that is naturally lower in fat and cholesterol and higher in protein than other meats, and it is also high in Omega 3's, making it an ideal choice for those who follow Paleo. They have an outer coat of hair to keep them warm and dry and a thicker hide that reduces the need to put on a layer of fat to help them stay warm.
The best part about Highland beef is it's superior taste and tenderness. Our animals take a minimum of 24 months to mature to perfection, and we have them processed at a small family-owned state inspected processing plant in central Missouri. We sell superior ground beef in one pound packages, delicious and tender steaks, as well as mouth watering roasts, and we sell by the individual cut, or bulk packages.

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.

At Linneman Heritage Hogs, Red Wattles are the breed we currently raise, with the intent to add Herefords. Our pigs (pork) are rotated through 14 paddocks on the perimeter of our five acres. We smooth and re-sow the terrain as they move out of a paddock.
We mix, grind and ferment our rations daily and onsite. We use no corn, soy or GMOs in our rations. Ingredients we use are: wheat, oats, black oil sunflower seeds, field peas, lime, diatomaceous earth, flax, minerals, and kelp. Apple cider vinegar, raw milk, cayenne pepper, turmeric, and homegrown garlic are added when we start the 2–3 day fermentation soak.
We do not chemically deworm, vaccinate, give iron shots, medicate, castrate, clip teeth or tails or confine any of our animals.
Currently we offer two litters annually resulting in very limited quantities available for sale. We do have an additional 20-acre pasture available and plan to add a Hereford sow to our mix in 2016.
We don't have a website but my FB page (Teri Linneman) has pictures of our pigs (and chickens!) if you want to take a look :-) Please call, e-mail, or private message me on FB with questions or for more information.

Mitts Family Naturals. Are you concerned with the industrialization of our food supply? Troubled by the increasing reports of food borne illness, food allergies and chronic disease? Are you ready to "opt-out" of the chemically laden, over processed, genetically modified food chain? If so, "opt-out" with us at Mitts Family Naturals, where we follow nature's patterns to provide nourishing products for your family.
We are growers of pastured chickens, rabbits and eggs. Our chickens and rabbits are housed in portable pens that are moved daily. This reduces disease and parasites, so antibiotics are not needed.

All butchering is done on the farm in
a clean open air environment. No chemicals are used in processing. All "waste" from
butchering is composted.
Our laying hens are allowed free roaming from sun-up to sun-down. They forage on the farm for what chickens were meant to eat. In return they give us great tasting eggs.

The Nutty Pig Farm is home to Red Wattle and Large Black heritage hogs (pork), which are known for their great tasting meat.
We raise them on pastures of clover and orchard grass. We rotate the pastures and in the winter give the hogs alfalfa or clover hay.They are always free to roam the woods to forage for nuts and grubs. We supplement with grains - no hormones or medication. They live a natural life farrowing where they choose - some like the woods, some the pasture and some their shelters. We have a boar of each breed with their own families, all ages together - they have fun loving to run around, graze the pastures, or wallow in their pond and self made mud holes.
We offer piglets, roasting and butcher hogs, 1/2 and whole hogs or cuts of meat. We will deliver the hogs to the processor of the customers choice. We mostly use Swiss meats as they do a great job and are USDA.
We do have our products at the St. Clair Farmers Market every Saturday morning and will deliver meat to customers locally and in St Louis.

Oakcreek Buffalo Ranch is home
to about 80 American Bison just north of Bella Vista, Arkansas
in SW Missouri, an hour's drive south of Joplin. And yes,
each one of these buffalo is named, has a definite
personality, and is special to owner Carol Klein.
We invite folks to visit our farm for a tour of the
herd and to purchase the healthiest, tastiest meat available anywhere.
(We do not ship meats, except for snack sticks and jerky which do not
need refrigeration.) Our meats are frozen and vacuum sealed, and
are sold right here at the farm by the pound in individual cuts such
as roasts, steaks and burger.
At Oakcreek, we try to raise our animals in the most
natural way possible. To learn more about how our animals are raised
and the nutritional value of the meats, please visit our website and
call with any questions. Many of our customers are referred by Metabolic

to their weight loss program. Body Builders from FUSE Gym in Bentonville
appreciate those qualities as well, and there is a restaurant at the
gym where you can try a delicious meal featuring Oakcreek bison. You

The Old Homestead Farm in Washington, Missouri
(40 miles west of St. Louis, Missouri) is a small, family-owned farm
where the chickens are allowed to roam the pasture, the woods, the creeks,
etc. from sun up till sun down eating all the grass, weeds, bugs, and
grains available to them. You
will see the difference in our eggs in the nearly orange egg yolk
and a richer more flavorful taste. Studies continue to confirm the health
benefits of eating ANY grassfed animal/products (including chicken eggs).
You can view a more recent study on the Mother Earth News website.
We also have available a wonderfully, handcrafted
goat milk/olive oil soap bar. All our soaps are made with 50%
olive oil which is very healing and nourishing to skin along with goat's
milk (from one of our resident nubians, Cindy) which is moisturizing
and gentle to skin. By combining these ingredients, along with coconut
oil, palm oil, and shea butter, we have an extremely gentle and nourishing
soap bar. No colorants or artificial preservatives are used. The soaps
have a warm, carmel color due to the olive oil and goat milk.
If you are near the St. Louis area, you can
purchase our eggs at the Sappington Farmers Market on Watson
Market on Big Bend in Webster Groves, and Local
Harvest Grocery on Morgan Ford
Road near Tower Grove park. You
can also purchase our soaps at the Local Harvest

farm with our children very much involved in what we do. We do not sell
anything that we would not feed our own children.
Our 100% grassfed beef are mostly a mix of Red Angus and Hereford
breeding that we have selected for smaller than average frame size. This
smaller frame size allows them to perform well on a grass diet. In the
winter we do feed hay and they always have access to free choice salt
and mineral. They are never fed grain or given growth hormones or antibiotics. We also don't use insecticide ear tags or chemical pour-on
Our hogs are a cross of Hereford and Berkshire breeding mostly and are
raised outdoors on dirt. They are fed a non-gmo corn and soybean meal
feed. They very much have the ability to express their unique
characteristics of being hogs. They also are never fed antibiotics to

and fall. They are fed a mix of non-GMO corn and soybean meal that is not
medicated. They are raised completely on pasture after they are just a few weeks old.

Pasture Nectar Farm is located in the Ozarks of southern Missouri. Our primary product is grass. Our grass gets harvested by some lucky cows, poultry, and sheep, and they turn it into lots of delectable things – the nectar: milk, cream, eggs, meat.
Our Shorthorn cows produce excellent meat, milk and cream for your family. They eat fresh grass and clover from our rotated chemical-free pastures during the growing season, and hay in the winter—never steroids, hormones, or animal by-products. In the parlor, they enjoy a non-GMO ration, 3 to 4 lbs or less, but enough to give them the extra calories they need while producing milk.
Raw milk is sold in half-gallon glass jars. You are welcome to visit our squeaky-clean dairy parlor anytime.
We offer USDA-inspected 100% grass-fed beef year-round. You can buy individual cuts any time (while quantities last) or order by the whole, half, or quarter beef. Our meat animals are 100% grass-fed.
Pastured lamb is available in whole, half or individual cuts, and is USDA-inspected.
Our free-range, out-on-the-pasture hens turn our grass and bugs into delicious, omega-3 eggs.
If you haven’t tried grass-based local food before, you will be amazed at the difference in the quality and taste plus you will be supporting a local family and helping to assure that you will have food grown close by in the future -- very important in these days of distant industrial one-size-fits-all food production. You can check pricing and availability on our website.

Peace Valley Poultry raises field-grazed chicken, turkey and beef. In 1996 our family began growing wholesome range-raised poultry. We are still a small family farm committed to providing high-quality, healthy meat in a manner that respects God's creation.
Our chickens are treated carefully and naturally from day one. The ration we feed them is one we mix from whole grains, vitamins and minerals, and does NOT contain Genetically Modified ingredients or any medications. The pasture they are raised on is pesticide-free/herbicide-free and is managed holistically with rotationally grazed cattle, although it is not certified organic. The chickens are raised in hoop houses that are moved to fresh grass daily to insure healthy birds and pastures. At processing time we continue our practice of careful handling to provide high-quality fresh chicken. The end result is a truly tasty bird; "Like chicken used to taste," as many of our customers say. The chicken is sold either whole, split (in half), cut-up, or in packages of individual parts.
In November we sell turkeys that are raised the same way the chickens are. We have heard many reports from satisfied customers who don't want anything but field-grazed turkeys now that they have tried one. Fresh turkeys are available on the farm and at delivery locations before Thanksgiving.
We sell our poultry from our farm and also meet customers in Springfield and Rolla. We are looking for someone to organize a buying club in St. Louis. Our chicken is also found in MaMa Jean's in Springfield, Ozark Country Market in Poplar Bluff, and can be ordered through American Grassfed Beef http://www.americangrassfedbeef.com/pasture-raised-poultry.asp .
We buy beef steers in the spring, graze them all summer and fall and process them in December.

Pure Pasture Beef. On our five-generation
family farm of rolling Missouri hills, tree-shaded pastures,
spring-fed ponds, waterfalls, and a winding stretch of the
Little Sac River, we raise all-natural 100% grass and clover-fed,
pasture-finished beef cattle from a closed herd of
original Black Angus stock started here 30 years ago. Those
years of experience have honed to perfection a premium, natural
beef (free of antibiotics, hormones, and animal by-products)
that we're pleased to offer as top of the line.
Pure Pasture Beef is for people with the highest
standards of quality and safety, who believe that informed food choices
can enhance their physical well-being and enrich their everyday lives.
Pure Pasture Beef is processed locally in a USDA Missouri certified organic
facility, going from farm to table.
Practicing a sustainable approach to cattle management
and land use here in the heart of Ozark Mountain foothills country, we
rotate our cattle from one pasture to the next on a regular basis so
they're grazing on clean, fresh grass (along with roaming bands of white-tailed
deer and wild turkey). We cut and bale our own red clover, alfalfa, orchard
grass and brome that we feed as hay in the winter; we feed the salt and
minerals; we monitor all animal health; we check the water; we wean the
babies. We do it all ourselves. Nothing gets between us and our cattle.
A farmer his whole life, Jim practiced law for thirty
years to help support the cattle habit he's had since being born into
a dairy family over fifty years ago. As President and CEO of the International
Association of Fairs and Expositions, Jim writes and speaks frequently
about agricultural issues here and abroad. Nancy, a Seattle transplant
and former college English teacher, supervises the daily farm operations,
takes care of the kids, and raises Missouri Fox Trotting horses.

Sassafras Valley Farm raises free-range Embden geese and Rouen ducks on our family farm in Gasconade County, Missouri.
We practice Low Impact Sustainable Agriculture (LISA) to raise geese and ducks in a traditional and environmentally sensitive fashion. We maintain a population density of less than 36 birds per acre to provide them with continuous access to fresh pasture and water. Our pastures have been carefully planted with a mixture of grasses and other plants that reflect the traditional diet of domesticated geese and ducks in harmony with the requirements of the local microclimate. Our birds are raised in a chemical free, pesticide free, hormone free environment.
Unfortunately, in the U.S., availability of dressed geese and ducks is limited due to the relative difficulty of raising them in high density confinement. Our geese and ducks are raised on free-range and natural pasture in the same traditional way that domesticated waterfowl have been raised since their original descent from their wild forbears.
Predator control (typically coyotes, feral dogs, and hawks) is accomplished through the efforts of several Great Pyrenees livestock guardian dogs rather than by trapping, poisoning, or shooting.
Rouen ducks are a slower maturing heritage breed with plumage similar to Mallards. They are considerably smaller than the more common Pekin ducks sold through most market outlets, and are less greasy as well as superior in flavor.
Embden geese are the traditional, large white geese familiar from pictures and folklore. Our Embdens are very low in fat due to their natural diet and healthy, outdoor living conditions.
Our geese and ducks are humanely processed in a USDA certified facility and available for purchase and shipment frozen via UPS 2nd Day Air throughout the U.S. Sassafras Valley Farm geese and ducks are also available through several local outlets in the Hermann and Saint Louis Missouri area. Consult our website for details.
Sassafras Valley Farm is proud to be certified by the prestigious Animal Welfare Approved organization.

Shamba Creek Farm is located in SW Missouri, just 2 miles from Northwest Arkansas. We are a small family farm focused on growing pasture-raised Heritage Breed Hogs, Red Angus Cattle, Katahdin/Dorper Sheep and Chickens for meat and eggs.
Our hogs are raised on a combination of pasture and woods, they are fed a NON-GMO grain ration and also forage for nuts and other proteins. We raise Large Black Hogs, which offer delicious red meat with a nutritious fat cap. Our hogs are extremely docile and love getting belly rubs. Try our 1 ½” pork chops and thick cut bacon, they are delicious!
Our cattle and sheep are raised on pasture from birth. In addition to the lush pasture grass that they graze on through the year, we supplement with hay as needed. Our beef and lamb are rich in flavor and extremely tender.
Our meat chickens are raised on pasture in moveable chicken tractors. They eat grass, bugs and we feed them a NON-GMO ration daily. Our chicken is lean and flavorful. Roasting or smoking our whole birds is one of our favorite meals.
Our egg-laying chickens free range during the day all over the farm. We feed them a NON-GMO layer ration. They all have wonderful personalities and love to “help” out around the farm. Our girls provide us with beautiful and tasty eggs.
We rotationally graze all of our animals for maximum nutrition and soil health. Our animals are never given antibiotics or steroids. All meat products are processed in a USDA-certified facility.
We sell at the Bentonville Farmers Market year-round and deliver directly to your home or office!

The Nutty Pig — See Nutty Pig above
Three Spring Farms is a new venture in 2011 by Andrew Bachmann, Jacob Bachmann and Bryan Meyers. The Bachmann brothers have loads of knowledge and experience: they are 4th generation farmers in the neighborhood with recent degrees in Agriculture from Missou. Meyers is a recent convert after an inspiring farm experience a few decades ago. Together they are raising grassfed beef and taking steps to protect and heal the farmland that they are working.
The Bachmanns have added to their previous knowledge by attending a grassfed grazing school in 2011, while Meyers perpetually bugs them with ideas gleaned from The Stockman Grassfarmer and other journals. We are simultaneously building our pastures and our grassfeeding skills. Initial work includes the building of a herd around some cows and calves that the Bachmanns have moved from their family farm up the road. The first year has seen the conversion of tilled fields to pasture and the development of plans to protect the ponds and streams by providing internal fencing and managed grazing. The grazing company is off to a strong start and has a small number of grassfed steers to offer at the end of the first year of operations.
We feed grass and hay only. We offer mineral supplements but absolutely no hormones and no antibiotics. The cattle are outside all the time and have had minimal health issues.
The beef will be sold direct to the consumer with options on how and where it will be processed. Will deliver to the St. Louis area and will discuss options outside that immediate region. Our farm is just across the river from Illinois, so it is a worthy consideration for those in Southern Illinois as well.

Troup Land & Livestock started in 2010 when we became involved with sustainable agriculture and rotational grazing of our beef cattle. We wanted to farm better and get more out of our land than conventional farming would allow. Setting out to build a business that could offer superior food, we refined our intensive grazing practices and added pork, poultry, eggs and lamb to our farm.
From birth our animals are raised on pasture making them a true grass-finished meat, a label that offers nutrition on your table. Our livestock never receive medications, hormones, or growth stimulants and the meat is naturally non-GMO as we never feed or supplement with grain.
We fully stand behind our products as they represent years of hard work and education that built the knowledge to produce them.
So with all that being said, why should what's good for you be expensive? We strive to provide the highest quality meats at an affordable price. By purchasing meat by portions of an animal versus individual cuts you save a tremendous amount of money over multiple trips to the store or market. If you are not yet sure you are up to purchasing the preset amounts we have listed on our pricing page, then try our individual packaged meats. We guarantee you will be back for more!
