We raise grass-fed, pasture-finished cattle and pride ourselves on our nutritious, delicious beef—one taste speaks for itself! We produce our beef without the use of growth-promoting hormones or antibiotics. And we never use chemical fertilizers or pesticides on our farm.

Good health, nutrition and stewardship of the land are our priorities. We practice land stewardship with rotational grazing and no chemicals, running a cattle farm that helps the local environment, not harms it. Our natural farming practices allow the land to provide cattle the food that nature intended them to eat. Our grass-fed beef has fewer calories and less fat than beef from industrial farms. Our beef also contains more Omega-3 fatty acids and Vitamin E.

We offer convenient online ordering where you can easily choose the cuts you want. We flash-freeze the beef and use two-day shipping to deliver to your door. Customers can pick from a variety of cuts, including:

  • Steaks. Cuts include Bavette, Bottom Round, Delmonico, Denver, Eye Round, Filet Mignon, Flank, Flat Iron, Hanger, London Broil, New York Strip, Osso Bucco, Ribeye, Sirloin, Tri Tip.

Amazing Creation Ranch offers totally grass fed beef, pastured meat chickens, and pastured turkeys.

It is our priority to be good stewards of the land and animals God has entrusted to us. We focus on keeping our animals on fresh, nutrient-rich pasture as much as weather and seasons allow. All our animals are rotated/moved to fresh pasture daily to insure the best feed and clean environment possible. Beef cows are never fed grain and only quality hay during winter months or dry seasons. Poultry get an organic grain ration that is free of GMO's and chemicals.

Our Beeves are processed in late October right after the prime growing season by a local USDA certified organic processor. We sell beef by the whole, half, or mixed quarter.

Chickens are raised from May to October and are processed on our farm. Turkeys are harvested just before Thanksgiving at the end of their prime growing season. It is always good to order early in the season so we have a better chance of having enough to fill your order at harvest time.

We make it a priority to know our customers and for our customers to know us as we are not certified organic we go above and beyond organic standards to produce safe, sustainable, and nutrient-rich food that is abundant in flavor. We like to be customer-inspected so we encourage our patrons to visit us and see exactly what we are doing and ask any questions.

You can purchase items here at the farm or we do deliver to certain drop points in PA. You can find current details of our operation like prices and ordering information on our website.

Autumn’s Harvest Farm is a family-owned farm, located in the heart of the of the Finger Lakes. We currently raise Berkshire pigs, Murray Grey beef cattle, Boer and Savannah goats, Katahdin sheep and multiple breeds of geese and egg-laying chickens. All of our animals are pasture raised.

When Autumn’s Harvest Farm was created by Tim and Sarah Haws in 2001, they took into account how damaging the agriculture industry can be to the environment. Because of this, they set out to create a farm that has a positive impact on the environment while raising our animals with the highest animal welfare standards. We do this by using regenerative farming tactics like putting up bird houses and encouraging bird activity to control our fly and mosquito population instead of chemicals, and rotating our chickens behind our cattle so they can create and spread their nitrogen and phosphorus-rich manure around the recently-eaten field to encourage more forage growth.

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 nationwide.

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 mini pack.

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), pastured 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.

Bo Cara Farms is home to a small herd of beautiful Belted Galloways who graze on fresh pastures, Nofa logocertified organic by NOFA-NY, Certified Organic LLC. In winter, they eat baled forage harvested from our pastures, and continue to enjoy 24 hour, free-choice access to the outdoors. Our herd is grass-fed and finished, and pesticide, steroid, and antibiotic free.

Belties are a small, slow-growing breed, so raising them requires patience and a willingness to work with nature. They don’t “pack on the pounds,” like many grain-fed cattle, but they do thrive on a variety of native grasses, making them the ideal grass-fed and finished beef cow. At Bo Cara Farms, we strive for quality, not quantity, and we raise only as many cattle as our pastures can naturally sustain. We are a small family farm, practicing holistic management, working with nature—not against it.

We sell wholes, halves and quarters (split halves), directly from the farm to you. We welcome inquiries, and visitors, but please call in advance if you would like to see our cows or take a tour of the farm. We are located in Cincinnatus, New York, about 30 miles north of Binghamton, and 45 miles south of Syracuse.

Cobblestone Valley is a diversified organic farm certified by NOFA-NY, located in the heart of New York State right off Interstate 81, Exit 13. We are 20 minutes south of Syracuse and 10 minutes north of Cortland in the small town of Preble.

The backbone of the farm is dairy, with all other enterprises connected to and synergistic with milk production. In addition to the dairy, we produce certified organic pastured poultry, which includes both broilers and turkey, and certified organic pick-your-own strawberries. We also produce grass-fed beef, pastured pork, and compost. We sell our milk to Organic Valley—a national, farmer-owned, farmer-operated co-op based in LaFarge, Wisconsin, which sells products in the region that they were produced. If local organic food is important to you, then please support Organic Valley!

The farm is in the fourth generation of the Knapp family and we are doing our utmost to preserve, conserve, and rebuild the wonderful soil resources in our valley. In organic farming we use nature as our teacher and we believe that all health begins with the soil so our soils are our most precious resource. Healthy soils grow healthy plants, which produce healthy animals and, in turn, healthy people.

We’d like to take a moment to thank you for your interest in locally grown foods. We sincerely hope that your interest will lead to your support of a local and thereby much more sustainable food infrastructure. Very often, the first step is the most difficult one to take. Once you’ve taken that first step towards purchasing locally, it all becomes much easier! If there is a product you are interested in that we don’t carry, we can often direct you to a local vendor that does.

We encourage you to check our website for complete information. We do not ship any of our products.

Cotton Cattle Company is a holistically-managed, sustainable farming operation dedicated to raising 100% grass-fed beef and pastured chickens. The farm is guided by the triple bottom line concept where actions are only approved if they benefit all parts of our ecosystem—social/community, environmental/land, and financial/our small business.

Great-tasting and healthy meat is only as good as the land the animals graze on. Located in the heart of the Musconetcong River Valley, our farm has more than 230 contiguous acres of rolling pastures and woodlots. This land is sacred to us. We can’t share clean meat with the community unless we start with clean land, which is why we exceed organic and natural standards by managing our farm in a manner that works symbiotically with the land and laws of Mother Nature. We breed and raise our cattle on site, using grass and hay produced on our farm. Our cattle slowly graze across rotational pastures as their ancestors did decades ago. By raising the herd according to their natural and biological needs, there is no need for preventative medicine or growth stimulants. Our beef and poultry are free of antibiotics, artificial hormones and animal byproducts. This is the way nature intended it. You will taste the difference, be healthier for it, and love supporting a greater good.

Our products are conveniently available online with delivery anywhere in New Jersey and Long Island, as well as the New York metro area. All of our beef and poultry is USDA inspected and flash frozen, then shipped directly to your home. In addition to home delivery, you can visit us on Saturday mornings at the Garden Street Farmers Market in Hoboken, NJ. Visit our website to learn more about us, our full line of products (heritage pork, bone broth, etc.), and our home delivery.

Our beef is grass fed and grass FINISHED. A closed herd combined with sound, natural farming practices keeps our beef happy and healthy—no need for wormers, hormones, or antibiotics.

In sync with our own standards, our butcher is Certified Organic (by NOFA) and Certified Humane (by Animal Welfare Approved) and located within a half hour drive from the farm, greatly reducing the stress of long-distance travel on our animals.

Deer Run Acres welcomes you to our family farm in Edinboro, PA, just a few short miles from the New York state line.

As a farm that uses regenerative agricultural methods, we manage our animals as part of the greater ecosystem around us. We try to be good stewards by treating our cattle, pigs and chickens in a respectful and responsible manner, and by working with natural cycles to give our herds the best forage, water, and living environment. Our animals are raised exclusively on pasture (with access to shelter during bad weather), just as cattle and pigs have been raised throughout history.

Our Beef is:

  • Pasture-raised from birth
  • 100% Grass Fed USDA Certified
  • Never fed antibiotics or hormones or treated with pesticides
  • Irish Dexter beef, rated #1 among grass fed steaks
  • USDA Choice and Select steaks (nonofficial grading)

Our Pork is:

  • Pasture-raised from birth
  • Fed with grass and local grains
  • Never fed antibiotics or hormones or treated with pesticides

Taste the pasture-raised difference! We believe animals that consume diets they were biologically intended to eat and roam freely outdoors are happier, healthier, and result in better-tasting, healthy meat.

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, ground grains.

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 the population.

We ship across the country. Look for us in the spring and fall at the Grand Army Plaza and Tribeca Greenmarkets in New York City. Visitors are welcome to pitch in at our fledgling farm on the Battenkill—but please call first!

Fox Hill Farm is 315 scenic, rolling acres in Ancramdale, New York just 2 hours north of NY City, in the foothills of the Berkshires of MA, CT and near the Taconic Parkway. We raise grassfed & grassfinished beef in an environmentally sustainable manner with rotational grazing of heritage breeds of British White, Murray Grey, Red Devon and crosses. They are very tame and raised organically but not yet certified.

The farm is protected from development by a conservation easement and has been in the Lampman family since 1882. The heritage breeds were chosen because of their ability to do well on grass and produce a healthy and tender, tasty product high in Omega 3 essential fatty acids.

Quarters, halves, or whole beef custom cuts are prepared to customer specifications. We also sell and ship individual packages of steaks, roasts, burger and now terrific hot dogs (PaPa Dogs) that are all-beef, no-nitrate, with a natural casing.

All processing is done at small, local USDA inspected facilities. However, if an animal is purchased on the hoof in advance, then the most humane ‘end’ can be arranged for at the farm. Shipping is available.

Visitors are welcome.

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!

George 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.

Raised in a rotational grazing herd as a hobby, they are on fresh grass daily from May to November, and receive no grain, growth 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, halves or occasionally quarters. 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 grasses.

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. Our price has been steady at $3 per pound hanging weight for some years now, with the purchaser paying the processing fee.

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 time.

Email is the preferred way to contact us. Pictures of the herd available on request.

Golden Hill Farms goes to grass finished beef.

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 pounds)
  • Steak Lovers Bundle (15 pounds)
  • Economy Bundle (20 pounds)
  • Ground Beef Bundle (25 pounds)
  • Family Bundle (30 pounds)
  • Roast Lovers Bundle (15 pounds)
  • Sampler Bundle (15 pounds)

Good Grass Farm is located in the beautiful rolling hills of Chautauqua County, NY. We purchased our house and land on Open Meadows Road in 1999. It was a bit dilapidated, to say the least, but we could see the potential and sense the warmth of this once vibrant dairy farm as we walked through the empty rooms of the old house and hiked the over grown pastures.

We started slow, growing good produce and raising chickens and turkeys for our family and friends that desired the same high quality, all natural products we wanted for ourselves. As we progress, we continue to embrace the basic philosophy that simple is best.

We currently produce pasture raised broiler chickens, brown eggs, and heritage and broad breasted turkeys. Broiler chickens are available June through September. Turkeys are available for Thanksgiving and Christmas. Eggs are available year round. Blueberries and produce are available starting mid July. This summer we are expanding to include grass fed beef.

All of our products are grown without the use of antibiotics, hormones, pesticides, herbicides, or chemical fertilizers.

usda organic

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.

Please refer to our web site for current availability and pricing. We would love to be your supplier of clean, local, flavorful and nourishing healthy food for your dining pleasure.

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 USDA logothe 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.

Check our website for up-to-date listing of availability or give us a call.

Herondale Farm is a mixed livestock farm. We raise 100% Grass Fed Beef and Lamb, and Pasture Raised Chicken and Pork. We pursue sustainable farming practices through holistic management. By managing land resources in partnership with grazing animals, we strive to increase land productivity, optimize water resources, preserve food sources, create sustainable livelihoods and remove carbon dioxide from our atmosphere.

The Heritage beef breeds of British White and Murray Grey were selected for their century old physiologies which allow them to thrive on our grass fed program.

The Berkshire Cross pigs and Cornish Rock chickens enjoy a varied diet combining grass, alfalfa, clover and bugs from the pasture, in combination with an organic feed mix. This produces a high quality tasty meat high in omega 3s.

Pork, chicken and beef are readily available. There is fresh chicken every weekend until late October. Our products can be ordered direct from our website and shipped via UPS, or pick-up at the farm, with a farm-stand open between Memorial and Labor Day on Tuesday thru Saturday, 10–5–2.

Hickory Field Farm is a small family-run farm located in Orange County, NY. We are dedicated to raising our animals in a natural, low stress environment to ensure they have the best quality of life possible.

Our beef cows have access to pasture 365 days a year within our rotational grazing model, and are a combination of Miniature Herefords and Lowline Angus. These smaller cattle require less pasture, are less damaging to the land, have shorter muscle fibers (which results in more tender beef), and produce steaks that are much closer to recommended serving sizes.

We also have pastured poultry; we use a heritage breed called "Freedom Rangers" that excel on pasture and have an excellent flavor. Their diet is supplemented with an organic feed composed entirely of locally produced ingredients. Our laying hens free range around the farm daily, and produce absolutely delicious eggs.

All products are currently only available for on farm pick up or delivery. Please contact us for availability or to reserve a product.

Honeyhill Farm is a small farm in Livonia, NY, near Conesus Lake, 30 minutes south of Rochester, off I-390.

Our Black Angus cattle are 100% grassfed, consuming nothing but organic pasture grasses and water. Their pastures consist of mixed perennial species, the ideal environment for cattle, and they move toward fresh grass daily as ruminants do naturally, providing the perfect stress-free environment. We have never had a sick animal. In winter, when pastures are expended, the cattle move to winter pasture where they find suitable cover in the woods and are supplemented with hay (dried grass) only.

Our beef is dry-aged two weeks, expertly cut, vacuum sealed by our USDA processor and frozen. It will keep perfectly for well beyond a year.

Honeyhill beef is available in two quantities: Eighth or Half. A Whole is two halves and each may be cut differently, offering many options. An Eighth aka Variety Pack contains 1/8 of a steer cut in a manner that is popular.

Tours are scheduled May–October. You will discover a clean and beautiful farm with a gazebo by the pond overlooking the pastures to sit and talk. Children enjoy our large yard and playhouse. Cap off the day with a free hayride amongst the cattle. Bring family and friends – No dogs please!

This is your opportunity to inspect us to your complete satisfaction! There is nothing hidden. You will have unlimited access everywhere and may ask any question and expect an honest response.

We Pledge: 100% grassfed diet on organic rotational pastures, no chemicals or medications, ethical and humane treatment, stress free environment with no confinement.

Our personal commitment to sustainability and the environment: Our pastures were added to the Federal Grassland Reserve where they will be protected Forever!

Kinderhook Farm consists of several hundred acres of pastures and hay meadows located in the Hudson Valley of New York. We raise beef cattle and sheep on a 100% grass and legume diet that includes no grain, antibiotics, growth hormone, or animal by-products.

Our grass fed pasture system is better for the animal and our environment, resulting in nutritionally superior beef and lamb.

Our cattle and sheep are born in the pastures of our farm, and graze the forages growing in our fields. We harvest the excess hay during the summer months and feed it during the winter. All animal wastes are returned to the land and become nutrients for the next grass cycle.

The Kinderhook Farm Store offers individually packaged cuts of pasture-raised, grass-finished beef and lamb, along with farm fresh pasture eggs and one of the best views in the Hudson Valley. We also raise Freedom Ranger meat chickens which are available on a seasonal basis. We’re open every day although we may be out doing chores around the farm when you arrive. Please call us on our cell phones and we’ll meet you at the store.

Larson Farm and Creamery is a 100% grass-fed farm in Wells, VT, very near the NY border. We have a herd of 25 Jersey cows that are rotationally grazed for the pasture season, and kept in a bedded pack for the winter where they are fed only grass and clover hay or baleage. We will be certified organic the fall of 2016. We have been managing organically for many years. Our passion is to remineralize the soils, to provide the healthiest soil, then the healthiest grass/clover, then the healthiest cows, then the healthiest food.

We currently sell raw milk in returnable glass jars at the farm store, which is open all daylight hours. We also deliver milk to farmers' markets in Dorset, and Rutland. We are a VT State-inspected Tier 2 raw milk dairy, which includes milk testing for bacteria and somatic cell count twice/month. Our counts always reflect very high quality milk.

Locustbrae is a family owned and operated grass farm selling, since 1978, the highest quality pasture-raised beef. Our goal is to bring healthy, flavorful beef to our customers in the Northeast while maintaining a self-sufficient, ecologically sensible operation committed to perfection.

The Scottish Highland breed has proven to be exceptionally well suited to transform our lush Western New York grasses into beef the way nature intended. We feel that by being stewards of these cattle while allowing them to be the natural stewards of their grassland has made Locustbrae an efficient, sustainable provider of high quality beef and breeding stock.

Highlands are smaller, slower-developing cattle than most commercial breeds and are listed as “Recovering” by the American Livestock Breeds Conservancy. Long, heavy hair and a thick skin give them the ability to weather harsh winters without developing excess body fat. The result is a lightly marbled, low fat, low cholesterol beef. Locustbrae Highlands spend their lives on lush pasture foraging on clover, orchard grass, trefoil and other native grasses. They also prefer a higher portion of “browse” (brush and weeds) than most breeds, minimizing the need for pasture mowing.

Healthy food is good for the body and good for the land. Grass fed cattle effectively transfer natural forages into nutritious beef without the need for environmentally costly antibiotics, pesticides, or chemically grown feeds.
Cattle are finished on pasture grasses and harvested seasonally, in harmony with the nutrition that Mother Nature provides.

All Locustbrae beef is cut and packed at a locally owned and operated, USDA certified facility providing custom dry-aging, and vacuum packaging.

Locustbrae Farm Scottish Highland beef can be purchased in quantities large or small and shipping can be arranged within a 100-mile radius of Alfred, NY. We are located just 15 miles from the New York/Pennsylvania border.

Long Days Farm is a small chicken, egg, and vegetable farm located in South Cambridge, NY, in the southern tip of Washington County. Our pasture-raised chickens spend most of their lives outdoors where they have plenty of room to forage in our field. We feed them locally grown and mixed grain that is free from antibiotics and hormones.

We raise two varieties. For our broilers, which average between four and five pounds, we have chosen Kosher Kings. These highly active birds are outstanding foragers. Their meat is therefore darker and more flavorful than that of standard birds. Our popular Cornish Cross roasters may reach 9 pounds. Many of our customers serve them for Thanksgiving.

Our birds are available at the end of September and the end of October. They must be reserved in advance, so write or call.

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.

Natural Borders Farm specializes in raising grass-fed beef on a rotational grazing system. Our cattle spend the grazing season moving daily to fresh paddocks of native grasses. We also graze horses, poultry and sheep with our cattle to encourage an increased variety of native grass species and to provide natural predator protection. We strive to provide a natural, healthy, non-stressful and enjoyable environment for all our livestock.

We also utilize pigs for compost production in our barn. These pigs spend at least 12 hours daily in the cattle barn rummaging through the bedding material while the cows are outside. Pigs are also fed corn meal, garden excesses and apples from our farm. We have a limited amount of pork available in both the fall and spring seasons. In the near future, we hope to offer pasture poultry and grass-fed lamb.

Our cattle are processed in a federally inspected processing plant. Beef may be purchased in quarters, halves or whole. Although not certified organic, no chemicals, hormones or routine drugs are used on our farm.

We also have our own hives of honeybees for increased pollination and production of pure honey that is available at most times.

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.

They are fed fresh ground grains fortified with Fertrell's poultry nutribalancer, a broad spectrum organic mineral and kelp supplement. Our feeds contain no animal by-products, antibiotics, or growth hormones.

Our beef and lamb are fed no grain, but graze in summer and are fed our own dry hay and silage bales in winter. They, too, have free choice salt, kelp meal and nutribalancer.

We have frozen chicken available year-round. We will have turkeys at Thanksgiving by order only (orders must be placed by July 15). Beef can be bought by whole, half, split quarters, or by 35 pound box. We have ground beef available year-round in 1-pound packs. We use the whole beef for our ground beef. It is lean and delicious.

Park View Farm is a small family farm located near beautiful Letchworth State Park in Leicester NY. We believe in using sustainable, diversified farming practices, working with nature to regenerate land by building soil and promoting diverse ecosystems. Currently we are raising Cornish Cross meat chickens and Katahdin hair sheep (lamb).

Our chickens spend most of their lives outside where they enjoy fresh air and sunshine while foraging on green pasture. They are fed organic, non-GMO, non-soy feed and supplement with grass and insects. Our healthy birds require no antibiotics or growth hormones.

The sheep are rotationally grazed on a fresh salad bar. They are fed no grain and are offered free choice minerals as a nutritional supplement. Sheep and chicken work great together. The chickens fertilize the pasture with their high nitrogen manure while also eating nuisance pests. The sheep keep the pasture mowed, turning the grass into delicious, nutrient-dense meat. Both animals aid in adding carbon to the pasture, building soil organic matter and biological health.

It would be our honor to have the opportunity to earn your trust and provide your family with our nourishing, humanely produced meat. We believe pasture-raised livestock to be far superior to the mass-produced conventional alternative. Better tasting, more nutritious, more humane, and better for the environment.

Calories raised with care, from our family to 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 butter.

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 it.

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.

We let our animals do the fertilizing for us and utilize a farming model that increases the biodiversity, growth, and fertility of our perennial pastures and harnesses the power of the sun and good soil.

All of our products are 100% grass fed start to finish and raised without the use of industrial fertilizers, herbicides, insecticides, antibiotics, or growth hormones. We raise chickens, pigs, and cows and utilize sustainable techniques including mob grazing and silvopasture. In addition to sustainable farming methods, we are also big supporters of farm transparency, which is why anyone is welcome to visit the farm anytime.

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.

Vernon Valley Farm raises grass-fed beef, pastured pork + poultry, and naturally grown vegetables. We strive to produce fresh, healthy, and flavorful food for our community.

Our operation is strictly chemical and drug-free. From the health and wellbeing 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 to make 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, known as intensive rotational grazing, mimics the natural grazing patterns of herd animals in the wild. This allows the grass time to rest and regrow and helps build healthy soil. It also helps to break insect and parasite cycles. We feed grass hay to our cows in the winter 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-sided barn. We utilize a bedded manure pack system. This historic method emphasizes animal comfort over production efficiency. The resulting compost is spread back on the fields after the winter to help grow our vegetables.

Chickens are raised on pasture in mobile chicken coops. They follow the cows in the pasture rotation and eat the flies that would otherwise bother the cattle. They produce both meat and eggs.

Chickens come whole, and eggs by the dozen. We sell beef by the whole, half, and quarter, as well as individual cuts. Pork is available as a side or a whole, or as individual cuts as well. Both can be custom cut to your specifications and will include a variety of retail-sized cuts. Everything comes frozen and vacuum-sealed from a USDA-inspected facility.

We welcome visitors and seek to mentor others about farming. Call for an appointment to visit or to place an order.

Our animals are given lots of space, sunshine, grass, fresh water, and non-medicated feed in as natural an environment as possible. We do not use hormones or antibiotics for our poultry. Our poultry processing is done on farm, humanely with great attention to cleanliness and quality. We also raise vegetables, herbs, and flowers without synthetic pesticides, fertilizers or herbicides.

Our goal is to connect people with where their food comes from and to emphasize the importance of environmental stewardship. Please contact us to receive our newsletter and order form. We welcome visits during the season. Please call in advance to arrange.

Wrong Direction Farm raises pastured pigs and poultry and grassfed beef.

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.

Pasture raised meat chickens and eggs are also available. Our chickens are fed certified organic feed.

Our grassfed cattle herd (predominately Devon and Angus) is rotationally grazed year round.

We sell our products directly to customers through our website. Meat can be ordered as individual cuts or in bulk shares such as half hogs or beef quarters. Along with on-farm pickup, we deliver to a number of locations in NY and NJ.

Thanks for your interest. Please call or email with any questions.
