Alger Family Farm wants to provide people with healthy food as affordably as we can. Currently, we offer pastured chickens and turkeys, grass finished beef and lamb, whole wheat bread, all natural soaps, and free range eggs when available.
Our meat chickens and turkeys start out right on pasture in a floorless pen. We have a hover with a heat lamp in the pen so that they can run under to get warm. They also run around pecking the ground for bugs and vegetation from their very first day of life. At this stage we move them as needed. At two to three weeks, they no longer need the heat lamp and begin to get moved through our pasture daily. In addition to the bugs and vegetation, we feed them a GMO-free/organic feed ration. Our moveable pens keep them safe from possums, raccoons, hawks and other predators while still allowing them fresh air, sunshine and access to the bugs and vegetation they need. When they are around eight weeks old, they are ready to butcher.
Our lamb and beef is 100% pasture finished and the animals only eat grass, other plants, salt and a high quality kelp & mineral supplement. We never give them hormones, antibiotics or chemical wormers. We spray no chemicals on our pastures.
Our free-range laying hens sleep in a moveable hoophouse and are protected on 1/2 an acre by an electric woven fence which we move as needed. We feed them a GMO-free/organic feed ration. They are allowed out during the day to eat all the bugs and plant material that they desire.
Our bread is all natural and baked with Certified chemical-free whole white wheat. Our soaps are all natural. There are never any artificial colorings or synthetic fragrances added to them. Herbs and essential oils add fragrance and even color to our soaps. Hard soaps last longer and these soaps are made to do just that. Each batch is mixed and cut by hand, so there will be slight variations in our handmade soaps. Each bar is approximately 4 ounces.
Farm membership, due by March 15th each year, gives you a 5% discount on chickens, turkeys, bread, eggs and soaps. No discount on beef or lamb. Information on membership at web site.

Attadale Farm—Hello and welcome to Attadale Farm. My name is Steve Fahsbender and my wife is Sandy. We raise quality, true, grass-fed Galloway beef and have the best free-range eggs you've ever eaten. We started Attadale Farm for my own health benefit. I had developed plaque blockage in my carotid arteries and needed to make a diet correction. The typical grain-fed beef we were eating was contributing to my problem, just as it does for so many others. It is important to me that my cows eat right. I need to know for sure. Now, My Cows Eat Right So You Can Too!
Our process here is simple. We have designed our mix of pasture grasses to provide the protein, digestible nutrients and sugars our cows need to grow healthy and happy without forcing them on a unnatural diet. Since we take our pasture seriously, we do not use any grain, additional hormones or any antibiotics. If antibiotics are medically necessary for a cow, they will be provided but that cow will be removed from my diet and our grass-fed program. Minerals and vitamins are continually available. We don't prod or crowd our cows. They are led and graze humanely. We believe that well-treated animals live to their full potential.
Our beef is sold by the split 1/8, 1/4 or 1/2. Our beef is sold by the hanging weight and is processed by Swiss Meat and Sausage Co. in Hermann, Missouri. By ordering in advance you will be able to select the cuts you desire. We also generally have spare cuts of beef that we will sell in groups of four. Please contact us for updated information, availability and pricing. Shipping is also available.
We encourage you to stop by and check us out.

At Cedar Cove Farm, we believe in raising
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.
We work in a direct market basis, but will take orders.
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 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.
Our rabbits are fed alfalfa pellets and supplemented
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.

Cock and Bull Farms provides the St. Louis and surrounding areas with high quality free range chicken and eggs, and we are currently exploring the possibilities of free range turkeys just in time for
Thanksgiving. For on-farm pickup, eggs are available year round, free range chicken is available from May until October.
Our chickens are on pasture from 3 weeks of age. We do our best to source GMO-free feed when
available. When it is time to take them to the market, we have all of our processing done at a USDA
Inspected plant, ran by an Amish Family in Arthur IL.
We started raising chicken (the way my grandpa used to do it) because we weren't happy with the
chicken and eggs available to us in the grocery stores. We keep the chickens on a pasture of fescue, bluegrass red clover and turnip greens. We use our Great Pyrenees guardian dog, Daisy, for predator protection in the pastures. We never feed or inject our birds with antibiotics, hormones or steroids. Our philosophy
is just to try to raise chicken that actually tastes like chicken, with the most natural approach we can.

not meeting our standards becomes ground beef so only the
best is available for our customers. And our prices

in the entire state.

David Inyart raises grass fed beef in Tunas, MO, about a one-hour drive north of Springfield.
One of the key elements to raising high quality grass fed beef is having high quality forage. I have been fully convinced of, and am presently implementing, intensive grazing, which is a great way to manage your pastures. When intensive grazing, the animals are put in a small area, which concentrates their manure (thus fertilizing the pasture) and helps to maintain more even grazing. Rotating the animals on a regular basis, (once a day in my case), gives the animals fresh pasture every day, and gives the manure time to break down and the grass time to regrow before grazing again. By intensive grazing, you can lengthen the grazing season, provide high quality forage longer through the summer, and stockpile grass for the winter, lessening the need for hay. During the winter, the cattle are fed hay only; I do not feed any grain whatsoever. I do not use any hormones, antibiotics, herbicides or pesticides. Cattle have access to free choice minerals and salt year round.
Beef is available by the whole, half, and quarter, and is sold by the hanging weight. It can be picked up at the butcher or delivered for a fee. Beef by the individual cut is also available.
It is my desire to raise high quality beef that is healthy for you and your family. Call today for pricing, to place an order for your beef, or to schedule a visit to see how your food is raised.

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.

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.

Goff Greengate Farm's mission is to handle the land as God intended… naturally, with good stewardship and using the most natural and sustainable products available to us at the time. We offer all-natural, pastured, grass-finished lamb and beef.
Our pastured poultry meat birds are fed organic, non-soy, non-GMO feed along with Fertrell's Poultry Nutribalancer trace minerals in addition to the fresh pasture land they are rotated onto twice each day via their "chicken tractors." Because we have chosen to process our own broiler chickens, no saline injections, additives, or preservatives are ever a part of our broiler chicken final products! Our 2013 broiler harvest dates are (tentatively) May 11, June 29, and September 28. You will also discover that our pastured free-range hens’ eggs are better than anything you’ll find in the store! You won’t have to worry about hormones and antibiotics when you purchase our livestock and products.
We want to serve you only that which we would also enjoy eating. We believe you'll enjoy natural more than ever before when you also know that you're buying local, supporting local farms, and building lasting relationships that benefit everyone involved. Thank you for supporting your local farmers!
We direct market our products using pre-orders for meat birds and lamb and beef. Chicken broilers are set for on-farm site pick-up but we do sometimes offer delivery meeting sites for additional fees.
Our location in southwest Missouri makes us within an hour's drive from Arkansas, Oklahoma, and Kansas too!
We would love to hear from you. If you have any questions or would like to talk to us about what we offer, you can call, email, or use our website's contact form... all listed below.

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.

raised eggs on 230 acres near Jamesport, Missouri. Our
hens are raised cage-free and get fresh pasture every
day. The mobile hen houses are moved by our Amish employees

a larger scale than has been done before, so more people can enjoy the
wonderful, healthy eggs that are produced in this system.

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.

grass-finished operation sells only beef born and raised on these
acres in NW Arkansas. We offer overnight shipping by ground to the Kansas

they've been standing in.

beta carotene, vitamin E and CLA. They are raised free of stress.

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.

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. The chickens and rabbits are allowed constant access to green pastures and sunshine increasing the nutritional value of the meat.
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
Weight Loss Center for a low calorie, nutritious and delicious addition
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
can also buy Oakcreek bison meat at Cooks Natural Market in Rogers.
Oakcreek Buffalo Ranch is a treat for customers who
enjoy a short trip out to this beautiful countryside and a visit to the
fascinating bison herd. We welcome you to visit also.

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

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.

Prairie Ridge Farms is located in the beautiful
rolling hills in southern Iowa. We have a certified organic dairy farm
and direct market our grassfed beef, lamb, and pastured pork.
All of our animals are 100% grassfed with the exception of our hogs,
which are fed small grains and milk and have access to fresh grass.
Our animals are given a fresh smorgasbord of forages
at least once a day and often 2-3 times a day. Our grazing management
practices provide high soil fertility, and highly mineralized soil. We
believe these high quality forages result in superior quality food.
We sell all of our meat by the whole,
half, or quarters. Our meat is available September-January. Please call for more information.

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.

Red Gate Farm, LLC is a small, family farm, focused on being good stewards of God's creation. Our produce is raised GMO-free, and without chemical pesticides or herbicides. In many cases, we even use heirloom and open-pollinated varieties of fruits and vegetables.
We raise our meat animals as naturally as possible, without antibiotics, hormones, or any other type of chemical or pharmaceutical. Our direct-to-consumer meat sales include heritage Red Wattle pigs raised in the forest, grass fed/finished Hereford beef cattle, meat rabbits, as well as pastured poultry including layers (eggs), cornish-cross broilers, and turkeys.
We also have Alpine Dairy Goats for milk and meat. The Dairy goats receive organic grain as a supplement to their regular hay and forest browse. The biggest milkers might receive about four pounds per day, divided over two milkings, but this is not typical and lasts only during peak season.
In addition to meats, we offer a variety of homestead and self-sufficiency classes and clinics.

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.

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.

SteelMeadow Farm is located between Ava and Mansfield, about an hour east of Springfield. In the rolling Ozark hills, we live in a lovely green valley nestled between clover-rich fields where we raise grass-fed Irish Dexter beef cattle and Spanish meat goats. We are proud to be both American Grassfed Association and Animal Welfare Approved.
The Irish Dexter cattle are a dual purpose breed (triple purpose if you include using them as oxen) and are registered. Dexters may be purchased as breeding stock or as packaged beef from our retail freezer. Their smaller size makes them the perfect choice for today’s health-conscious consumer and their gentle, docile nature makes them wonderful additions to the farm as well.
Our meat goats are of three Spanish lines: Valera, Pape and Weinheimer. The goats grow quickly and thrive by clearing woods, controlling and removing weeds and generally work hard on our farm. We will sell some does and bucks for your own breeding stock, or you may purchase young delicious cabrito from our retail freezer on the farm.
We have 3–5 hives of bees which forage the Ozarks pastures and woods for nectar. There are no “row crops” or sprayed fields within the bees’ flight path. Our honey won the prestigious Best Non-Local Blend in the 2013 Black Jar Honey Contest, held annually in Asheville, NC. Honey yield varies from year to year.
We do not use routine antibiotics, stimulants or growth hormones. Our animals are given free-choice custom minerals to round out their pasture/forage-based diet. Check out our website for additional offerings and news!

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!

maximum quality on the next grazing period.

cuts and products. Our menu also includes fully cooked selections
of beef including nutritious organ sausages and many hard
to find beef and lamb organs. We specialize in pemmican energy
