Beartown Farms supplies healthy
grass fed lamb and beef.
We are situated in the ‘lake
effect’ zone east of Lake Ontario - an outstanding location for
a grass farm. Forty inches of rain, cool summers, and water holding soils
enable us to grow excellent forages without chemical fertilizers or herbicides.
With more than 650 acres of meadows and pastures, the sun provides all
the energy required to sustain our farm operations.
In order to efficiently manage the
land for our animals, we practice rotational grazing and harvest all
of our winter feed as hay and grass silage. The farm is home to more
than 500 Dorp-Croix hair sheep and 125 Angus cattle. Our lamb is
for people who don’t normally like lamb, as there is no wool lanolin
taste to the meat, and Angus beef is among the best.
Sustainable agriculture and healthy
grass-fed lamb and beef – it doesn’t get better than that.
Try some for yourself. Our farm grown lamb and beef are USDA inspected,
custom cut and vacuum packaged. Cows are sold by the whole, half and
split quarters and lamb by the whole.
You can contact us to order or arrange
a delivery directly to specific locations within the northern New York
region. Pick-up at the farm is always welcome. Shipping is also available

Bennington Beefalo is
a family business located in the green hills of Wyoming County in western
New York State.
Beefalo, like their relatives
the American Bison, thrive on the grasses and various legumes found in
our pastures. We try to provide as much green grass, fresh air and sunshine
as possible to our animals by employing rotational grazing to provide
them with a fresh salad bar eating experience. This menu of grasses helps
to provide our meat with more flavor and nutrition than found in conventional
grain fed, feedlot beef from the supermarkets. Our animals are raised
without implants, antibiotics, hormones and in most cases, no grain feeding.
Various studies have shown that Beefalo is higher in protein, and lower
in fat, cholesterol and calories than other meats and poultry. It is
tender and tasty and cooks in less time than regular beef, with less
shrinkage due to its lower fat content.
Our meats are processed in a USDA federally
inspected packing house. They are dry aged in a cooler for two weeks
to promote tenderness and a good eating experience. They are then cut
and wrapped to your specifications and frozen, ready for your freezer
and eating enjoyment. Available by the side, split half, or 50-pound
If you have any questions or want information
regarding current prices and available pick up dates, please phone us.
We also offer a variety of handcrafted soaps made from Beefalo tallow
and other fine oils.

Black Willow Pond Farm is an all-natural,
pasture-based diversified livestock-producing farm. We use alternative,
environmentally friendly, and sustainable food production models that
allow us to feed our own family, as well as those in the local
community who allow us to grow their food right next to ours.
We care about what goes into our food and how our
animals are treated and raised. We believe that every animal should
be raised in the most natural setting possible. We utilize "organic" (and
beyond) methods but are not certified organic. The only "insecticides" on
our pastures are our laying hens and broiler chickens. Our only fertilizer
is from our natural compost and from the back end of the cow, sheep,
lamb, chicken, turkey, rabbit, or pig that is standing on the pasture
when nature calls.
We are a seasonal farm offering eggs from
hens that are "modified" free-range (they are protected from predators
with a net fence and an eggmobile that moves around on pasture), pastured
poultry broilers (White Cornish Cross and Heritage Red Cornish),
turkeys (Big Breasted White and Heritage Bourbon Reds),
pastured rabbit (New Zealand and Californian), Katahdin lambs,
and Heritage Hereford pigs. Our products are available directly
on the farm, at the
Sharon Springs Farmers Market, and at Mildred's
Meadows. Our chicken is available on the menu at The
American Hotel in Sharon Springs.
We do not ship. We would rather you take the
time to visit the farm or find a local farmer who follows sustainable
production methods. We have started a meat CSA for customer convenience;
if you would like more information on hosting a "stop,"
please contact us to make arrangements.

Blue Fire Farm & MileStone Apiary offers grassfed beef, breeding stock, and raw honey. We use biodynamic principles. We see our farm as a living ecosystem, from the soil microbiology up.
Our family raises heritage cattle breeds that excel on native pastures, mainly Belted Galloway. Our cattle
live and graze in family groups, migrating around our farm throughout the growing season. During the winter they are
fed native hay free choice. We also offer them kelp and salt with added selenium and vitamin E free choice, year round.
Our honeybees are allowed to build comb naturally, as they would in the wild. We use two types of box style hives:
Warre with observation windows and the conventional boxes. We feel strongly about the conservation of honeybees
and that they are the backbone of agriculture. We even remove wayward honeybee colonies from buildings. Honeybees
unfortunately are being plagued at this time with many devastating pests. We use an integrated pest management system
to help the bees cope with these killers.
Our honey is available by mail and is sold locally at several stores.
Beef is available on a preorder basis, by the quarter, half and whole; cut to your specifications at a local USDA inspected slaughter house.
Honey is packaged in several different size and style containers.
For more information, prices and questions, please feel free to call, write or email us. We look forward to hearing from you!

Flying Pigs Farm offers pork
chops, tenderloin, roasts, bacon, ham and Sun-Dried Tomato and
Chardonnay Sausage. Our pork is much more moist and
flavorful than supermarket meat. It's different because we raise
heritage breeds of pigs the old-fashioned way.
The pigs are raised outdoors in the
fresh air and sunshine, with plenty of room to roam on our fields and
in our woods. Because they have so much space and because we move them
often, the land stays clean and the pigs stay healthy. The pigs snack
on grass, weeds, and roots that grow on our land, and they also eat dried,
Our pigs are "Large Blacks," Glouestershire
Old Spots," and "Tamworths," old-fashioned breeds in danger
of extinction. It may seem odd to use these breeds for pork because they
are so rare, but they will not survive unless a market for these animals
can be created. Breeders can then afford to expand their herds and expand

They use management-intensive grazing and wholistic practices to create a biological farming
system that is beneficial for the animals, environment, consumers, and community.
On the fields, absolutely no pesticides,
herbicides, or artificial fertilizers are used. Instead, their own organic compost
made on the farm from the winter bedding and natural is applied to the land. During the grazing season, the animals are outside, giving them an abundance of fresh air, sunlight, and organically fertilized pastures. During the winter they are housed in buildings for protection and bedded with organic matter used for fertilizing the fields. No antibiotics,
medications, or fast-growth hormones are used on the animals. The focus of the farm is on the overall well-being
of the animals, the positive impact on the environment and community,
and the nutritional quality and taste of the product offered to customers.
Products offered include: pastured chickens and turkeys;
100% forage/grass fed and finished beef and lamb; forage fed pork; and eggs from pastured hens. They also offer shares of the cow and goat herds for customers interested in 100% real milk. The cows receive no grain at any time in the lives, and the young goats and lactating does receive no more than 1 pound of goat grain per day.
Meats are available seasonally, sold
ready for the table or freezer, and are picked up by the individual ordering.
Eggs are available year around. Deliveries are periodically made to the Buffalo area.

Gansvoort Farm raises 100% grassfed lamb in the Hudson Valley.
I rotationally graze my flock on diverse, nutritious pastures to protect water quality, biodiversity and store soil carbon. My sheep are Icelandic crosses—hardy, healthy, and excellent graziers, with meat known to be mild and delicious. I use organic practices (no antibiotics, no hormones, organically managed pastures) but am not USDA certified organic. I follow animal welfare guidelines to maintain a happy, healthy flock.
I have lamb for sale every fall by the whole or half. Orders can be placed by phone or e-mail beginning in late summer. All lamb is cut to order and I will help you decide how you want it done if you are not familiar with the options. I usually sell out by early October, so order early. My butcher says it is some of the nicest lamb he has ever seen. And my customers all agree the flavor is unbelievably good - this lamb is nothing like super market lamb.
Please visit my website to learn more about my farm and my management practices!

Highlanders is located in the rolling hills of western New York
and keeps a herd of Scottish Highlanders for the sheer pleasure of
it. We do baby them, and prospective customers are welcome to come
and see the herd anytime—and the windmill in their pasture.
Organically raised in a rotational
grazing herd as a hobby, they are on fresh grass daily
from May to November, and receive no grain, hormones or antibiotics.
We are not "certified" organic,
but that is the way we operate.
We sell Grass Fed Freezer Beef as custom slaughter by whole or halves.
If a half is too much, find a partner or group to split it with.
A typical half from a 30-month-old animal will have a hanging weight
from 225 to 300 pounds. We do custom slaughter only in the fall
to take full advantage of fattening the animals on the lush fall
Highlanders are an exceptional
beef animal, but they grow a little slower than the popular commercial
breeds. We think this slower growth results in superior flavor.
It is our conviction that we can produce a high quality, healthy
product at a lower cost than grain fed animals, and we are pricing
the hanging weights accordingly. Please email for current prices.
Cattle are taken to a USDA inspected
slaughterhouse where they are custom processed to your request,
wrapped and frozen. To be legal, you must pick up your frozen packages
at the slaughterhouse, with Saturday mornings being a convenient
We have received
many requests for Grass Fed ground beef and are trying to satisfy
those requests. This year, we will slaughter at least one steer
for 100% ground. This
will not need to be seasonal in the future. It will be a premium
product with the steaks, roasts and all the prime cuts included
in the grind. To sell ground beef legally from
a custom slaughter, we need to sell a fractional portion
(maybe 1/8th) of the animal, but would price it, fully processed,
picked up frozen at the slaughterhouse, for
$4/pound packaged weight; discounts are available
for larger quantities.
Grass fed ground beef makes an
exceptional hamburger, with no waste, and seems to be more in demand
than any prime cut. One-eighth of an animal will yield about 40
pounds of top quality ground beef. If you are interested in the
ground beef, please send an email, as emails are the preferred
way to contact us. Pictures of the herd available on request

Golden Hill Farms goes to grass
Golden Hill Farms is in northwest Pennsylvania,
about 40 miles south of Erie, 80 miles north of Pittsburgh, and about
2 hours from both Cleveland and Buffalo. We are 4 miles east of I-79
off exit 141.
For over 25 years we at have been producing
and selling top quality show cattle, with the remaining calves being
sold to feedlots for grain finishing. Since we are a grass and hay farm,
this year we decided to keep 30 of our top feeders to finish on grass.
During much of this time we have also
operated a meat processing plant. The animals in this program will be
slaughtered under federal inspection and we will be processing the meat
ourselves, in our facility on our farm. Additionally, the only meat we
will be processing will be our grass fed beef.
This year the grass finished cattle
will have an average dressed weight of 600–700 pounds. They will
be sold by the half (300–350 pounds) or in bundles.
We have designed seven different bundles
that we hope will meet everyone's needs. The contents and price of each
can be seen on our website.
- Large Family Bundle (60 lbs.)
- Steak Lovers Bundle (15 lbs.)
- Economy Bundle (20 lbs.)
- Ground Beef Bundle (25 lbs.)
- Family Bundle (30 lbs.)
- Roast Lovers Bundle (15 lbs.)
- Sampler Bundle (15 lbs.)

Good Grass Farm is

Green Heron Growers has been a certified organic farm since 2007 for Shiitake mushrooms, veggies and herbs. In 2009 we added chicken for meat production and 100% grass fed Devon beef. We are a small operation which we run ourselves with the help of a volunteer on occasion. NOFA-LLC certifies our farm organic.
We raise our meat birds in moveable chicken tractors, which get moved twice a day to provide them with fresh grass and bugs along with certified organic grains.
Our Devon beef are raised on certified organic pastures, but are not considered organic because we purchase them as yearlings. With the purchase of our breeding herd in 2012, we hope to be able to offer certified organic beef soon. We harvest our beef animals from July to December and offer quarter, half and whole animals along with 50 pound mixed boxes plus we have a continual supply of beef cuts available in our Farm Store through out the year.
Most of our sales are done at Farmers markets in Buffalo and Fredonia and from our Farm Store; we offer a self service option if we are not at home. We currently offer beef and chicken on a year round basis and Shiitake mushrooms, veggies and selected greens starting in June of each year.
Our Shiitake mushrooms are log grown and are cultivated in our hemlock grove. We have over 2000 logs in production. It's quite a science project, which causes our supply to fluctuate according to the weather and our soaking schedule.

Happy Hooves Organic Farm raises 100% grass fed, grass finished Beef, pasture raised soy-free Pork, truly free-range and soy-free Chickens, Turkeys, Ducks and Eggs. ALL of our animals are raised on pasture for optimal health for the animals.
We are Certified Organic by Global Organic Alliance (GOA) for our Beef, Pork, Chicken, Turkey, Ducks, and Eggs. We NEVER use any hormones, antibiotics, pesticides, chemicals or anything not allowed in Certified Organic production of any of our meats, and we don't feed any soy.
Our calves stay with mothers getting their milk naturally until their Mama puts a stop to that. Our cows are never confined and never see a feedlot. We take pride in knowing they are happy—as evidenced by the way they "play" in the fields. Unhappy animals, or animals that don't have their comfort needs met do not "play." Happy cows make better beef !
Poultry is hatched here or comes from a hatchery as day-old chicks. Once old enough to move outside they stay out on pasture until old enough for harvesting, spending their days in the sunshine nipping at grass and bugs. Hens, of course, stay here year round with outdoor access on all but the nastiest of winter days. In the spring, summer and fall they are out all day roaming around the property.
Our pigs are born here, bred and born by natural methods out on the pasture. They have portable "huts" for shade and wind protection. Sows will build a "nest" to give birth to their piglets in. Piglets are raised by their mothers until the sow decides it's time to wean them, usually at around 10 weeks of age. Sows continue to stay with the piglets until they are at least 4 months old and then seem happy to retire to a separate sow pasture where it's much quieter away from the piglets. Each sow has only one litter per year.
Our meat is sold directly to consumers. Beef and Pork is processed at a USDA inspected butcher and sold by cuts, quarters and sides. Chickens and Turkeys are sold whole and cut up and Eggs by the dozen.

Kezialain Farm, in Orange County NY, has been in our family since 1775. We see ourselves as stewards of this land – which is why we raise cattle that are 100% grass-fed, certified organic (by NOFA-NY).
Our cattle are raised on their mothers’ milk, our organic pasture and hay, and organic minerals like kelp—nothing else. They thrive on the native grasses and plants that grow naturally in the fields, keeping the soil fertile and the farm sustainable. This diet and their low-stress lives make them naturally healthy and enhances the quality of their lives. It’s also better for the environment and produces the healthiest kind of beef available.
We use a small organic humane USDA slaughterhouse. The meat is dry aged for 10–14 days to enhance flavor and tenderness, then cut, vacuum packed and frozen. We sell meat directly from the farm as sides (which are cut to your specifications); mixed quarters and eighths (we try to include the cuts that you prefer); 20-pound variety packs of steaks, ground beef and other cuts; and 10 or 20 pound packs of ground beef. We sometimes have ground beef and small amounts of meat available but usually orders have to be placed in advance – just contact us and we’ll let you know about availability.
More information and a video of the farm are on our website. If you have any questions about buying in bulk, we are glad to answer them. We understand that many people haven’t done it before and don’t know what to expect.

Lowland Farm raises grass-fed, grass-finished beef and pastured pork on verdant farmland in the Hudson Valley, 50 miles NW of New York City, in Warwick, NY and Vernon, NJ.
Our cows are mixed breeds, including Angus, Hereford, and Devon. They spend their entire lives out of doors, eating grass exclusively, without antibiotics or growth-promoting hormones. We began raising beef seven years ago and are beginning to see the results of our high density rotational grazing in improved soil, organic matter and fertility – and in excellent beef. We added pasture-raised hogs in 2012, rearing heritage breeds on sectioned woodland habitat. Hogs live on the fruits of their foraging and on feed free of antibiotics and hormones.
We sell varied cuts of grass-fed beef and pastured pork, processed at USDA-approved facilities and sold frozen in vacuum-packed packages: steaks, roasts, short-ribs, sandwich steak, ground beef, ham, sausages, spare ribs and other cuts.

New York Beef Company,
LLC. At the New York Beef Company we had two goals:
to raise beef that would yield the finest, most
succulent cuts available and at the same time be one
of the healthiest foods one can eat.
Many would consider these goals an impossible
paradox. But our 100% grass-fed, all-natural beef is completely free
of antibiotics, hormone implants and by-products. The life of each animal
is totally controlled from birth to harvest on a small group of upstate
New York farms that must past stringent guidelines to meet our quality
criteria. The end result is the finest, healthiest, safest beef you can
buy. It takes a lot to pass our requirements because we know it takes
a lot to pass yours.

Pure Indian Foods is a small
family-owned business that takes pride in making an exceptional quality
grass-fed and certified organic Ghee. Goldencolored Ghee is prepared
by melting and simmering butter until all the water evaporates and the
milk solids settle at the bottom. The remaining butter oil is very stable,
giving it a high smoke point which makes it an excellent choice for deep
fat frying, baking and sautéing. Because of the low moisture
content, it can be stored without refrigeration for 2-3 months. Many
people find our ghee, with its rich, nutty flavor, to be tastier than
We make our ghee fresh, with care, in
small batches, right here in the USA. Our products are USDA Certified
Organic. We use butter made only in Springtime through the Fall, when
the cows are actually out on the pasture eating fresh green grass. We
make our ghee only on the waxing or full moon days which are auspicious
in the ancient Vedic system. We use glass bottles instead of plastic
bottles to avoid dangerous toxic chemicals from leeching from plastic
containers. Our family has been in the ghee business in India for 5 generations,
since 1889, and we are proudly continuing that tradition.
Ghee has been used for its health-giving
and healing properties for thousands of years. In Ayurveda (the “science
of life”), cow ghee is considered one of the most sacred foods.
Ghee is the best cooking oil as it is
stable at higher temperatures, and it enhances the flavor of spices and
herbs. Ghee is free of casein and lactose and is suitable for people
who are allergic to dairy products. It keeps skin soft, and has anti-aging
properties. Ghee contains naturally occurring CLA, Omega-3, Vitamins
A, D, E & K2. It is free of harmful trans-fats.
Ghee is shelf-stable and we ship worldwide
by USPS, UPS, FedEx or DHL. We offer special discounts to co-ops
and buying clubs.

Raindance Farm is introducing "Sun
Cheese," our artisanal semi-hard cheese made in the tradition of the
Italian Alps. Both grass-fed and organic, we use whole, raw cow's milk
in an Asiago recipe. This traditional cheese recipe was perfected
over the centuries using milk from cows on grass meadows and with
it the goodness in our milk shines. Sun Cheese is aged at least
six months with a subtle flavor; creamy, grassy and sweet with
a slow, nutty nuance.
We are seasoned grazers, entering our twentieth
year as enthusiastic graziers and our twelfth year certified organic with
Nofa-NY. This year we are again honored by the National Dairy Quality
Awards as a Gold finalist and the exceptional milk quality makes
our cheese that much more healthy for the families like our own who enjoy
CLA analysis done in
'08 found the CLA at an impressive 19.6 mg/gram because
we only make cheese during our green grass season in order to pass on
the health benefits to you. To get cheese shipped to you, contact us
directly by phone or e-mail.
We also have frozen whey fed pork, milk
fed "Rose" veal and grassfed beef for
sale at the farm and at the Columbia Greenmarket.

Simple Gifts Farm is
a small, diversified family farm focusing on pasture-based poultry and
heritage pork production. We also grow and sell
organic (non-certified) vegetables, herbs and flowers.
Our poultry—meat chickens,
laying hens and turkeys—are raised outdoors with access
to fresh grass from the moment they arrive as day old chicks. The first
couple weeks of their lives they are restricted to our hoophouses, which
are on grass, but are more protected from wind, rain, snow, etc. As they
grow, they are moved completely outside, with a small movable shade structure
to accompany them. We move them to fresh grass at least once/day, rotating
their grazing areas over several large pastures. They are also fed certified
organic local grains.
Our pigs are also raised outdoors, with
several small temporary huts for protection from inclement weather in
the colder months. We rotate their pastures so they are able to eat ample
amounts of grass, roots, acorns, other tree nuts and berries. Most of
the pasture areas include some forest ground, which allows them shade
in the summer months and where they enjoy rooting in old logs and through
the leaves to find acorns, grubs and other tasty treats. Our sows farrow
outdoors, where we allow them to choose their own farrowing areas, as
they build large cozy nests to give birth in. From day one the piglets
are exposed to sunshine, rain, wind, green grass and rich soil. We rotate
all the pigs through a variety of pastures and woodlands.
Our vegetables are grown organically,
with a focus on open pollinated and heirloom varieties.

Field Farm, located in the farming community of
Shushan (Washington County), is one of the few sheep
dairies in New York State. Owner/farmers Paul Borghard
and Karen Weinberg are milking approximately 150 East
Friesian cross ewes and pasture raising approximately
300 lambs annually.
Every effort is made to maximize the
health and well-being of the animals and the environment. The operation
is grass-based and seasonal: ewes and lambs are intensively grazed on
over 100 acres of grass, clover, and alfalfa pastures and ewes are milked
only while on pasture. The flock's diet is supplemented, when necessary,
with locally-grown whole grains. The milk and meat is produced naturally
with careful attention to the welfare of each animal, whether they are
destined for the milking flock or the slaughterhouse. The result is lamb
that is tender, flavorful and healthy. One chef compared the taste of
the lamb from 3-Corner Field Farm to great wine: reflecting the sweet
nuances from the land on which it is grazed.
Paul and Karen market most of the ewes'
milk to Old Chatham Sheepherding Company for the production of their
award-winning cheeses. Their naturally raised lamb is direct marketed
to local customers at the farm; is sold to individuals and restaurants
in New York City at the Union Square Greenmarket; and can be mail-ordered
anywhere in the U.S. In 2003, 3-Corner Field Farm will be offering a
small quantity of sheep's milk cheeses as well. Visits and tours
of the farm and milking operation are welcome. Please contact Paul or
Sharon or check their website to place an order or to obtain more information

At Veritas Farms we
raise our Heritage breed animals on open pasture, where
they’re free to be warmed by the sun and cooled by
the gentle breezes of the Hudson Valley. We take a sustainable,
old fashioned approach to farming. We believe it is our
responsibility to work in harmony with the environment.
We are passionate about grass farming, and believe it is
evident in the flavorful and healthy meats and eggs we
raise. Our customers are invited to tour Veritas Farms.
Our animals are raised naturally and
humanely. We provide them with good food, give them room to roam, and
let them produce and reproduce with minimal human intervention. Our laying
flock is comprised of many different Heritage breeds of chickens, resulting
in differently colored and shaped eggs. For meat, Heritage breed chickens are
available year round, and Cornish rock crosses raised on pasture
are available seasonally. We also raise two Heritage breeds of turkey,
and Pekin duck hatched from eggs laid here at the farm.
Gloucestershire Old Spot and Large Black pigs thrive
outside on our pastures.

Vernon Valley Farm raises grass-fed beef, pastured pork, and naturally grown vegetables. We strive to provide fresh, healthy, and flavorful food for our community.
Our operation is strictly chemical and drug free. From the health and well-being of our cows, all the way down to the worms in the soil, we seek to use nature's synergies to farm rather than industrial methods.
All of our cows are born on the farm and raised on our pastures. We have spent years fine tuning the mix of grass species so that there is a diversity of forage available, irrespective of the weather. From spring through early winter, we move the herd daily to a fresh area. This system is known as intensive rotational grazing and is designed to mimic the natural grazing patterns of herd animals in the wild. This allows the grass enough time to rest and regrow and helps build healthy soil. This also helps to break insect and parasite cycles.
In the winter, we feed grass hay to our cows and all year long we offer free access to OMRI approved sea salt, vitamins, and minerals, which in turn re-mineralize the soil.
During periods of inclement weather, we feed our cattle in an open air structure. We utilize a bedded manure pack system. This historic method puts a greater emphasis on animal comfort rather than production efficiency. The resulting compost is spread back on the fields after the winter.
Currently we have grass-fed beef in stock and are accepting orders. We sell by the whole, half, and quarter, as well as individual cuts. Next season we will have pork, with the potential for poultry.
We welcome visitors and seek to mentor others about farming.

Wrong Direction Farm raises pastured pigs and poultry. We also raise grassfed beef and lamb.
Our pigs are rotationally grazed on pasture and in wooded fencerows from April through December. In the winter we bring the pasture to them, in the form of hay harvested from our fields. We grow kale, pumpkins, oats, and root crops for the pigs, and we continue to play with the mixture to find optimal homegrown feed. We supplement their forage with organic grain, whey from a nearby cheese shop and vegetables from regional farmers markets. We sell most of our pork by the whole pig or half pig, but we sometimes have individual cuts and assortment packages for sale.
Pasture raised meat chickens are available during the summer and fall, but pre-orders are preferred to guarantee availability. Our chickens are fed certified organic feed.
Grassfed beef is available as halves or quarters.
