Asgard Farm is a small, family owned/operated farm following a sustainable, grass-based agricultural model. We produce pastured poultry and eggs, heritage turkey, forage fed beef/lamb and pasture raised pork.

Besides fresh, chemical-free pasture, clean water and sunshine, our animals (those requiring supplemental feed) receive a certified organic, soy-free, locally milled ration. Our products are ideal for those following a Weston A. Price, paleo, or other primal diet. We also produce hand-made, goat milk soap from our small herd of Nubian dairy goats.

The animals we raise are heritage breeds where possible. The only animals not fitting this description are our broilers, which are Freedom Rangers, a slow-growing, colored broiler bred for it efficiency on pasture under the French Label Rouge program. All poultry is processed on farm and all livestock is processed at a local, Animal Welfare Approved, USDA-inspected facility.

Our products are available for on farm pick up via appointment, or delivery can be arranged for large orders (we welcome the opportunity to establish new buying clubs; email us for minimums and delivery fee).

Back To Earth Farm is a family farm located along the Uwharrie River on 110 acres, 8 miles southwest of Asheboro in the North Carolina Piedmont area. Named for our pilgrimage back to simple clean living on beautiful land, growing health-generating foods. We spend our days happily caring for the land and animals. We also host events for people interested in their health, food systems, weddings, or just a farm visit to reconnect with nature.

We are passionate about regenerative farming to renew the health of the land and connecting communities with a healthy food source. We offer 100% pasture raised gourmet grass fed beef. It is available in a variety of cuts by the pound or we offer ¼, ½, and whole animals if you prefer buying in bulk. You can order online at our website, and take delivery at a pick-up location or by appointment only at the farm.

We raise our animals in concert with nature. At present our cattle are predominately Red Devon with some Black Angus and Red Angus mixed in. The Red Devon breed was selected because they finish well on grass. They are grown completely from birth on our farm, and spend their lives on pasture enjoying sunshine and fresh air. We never use pesticides, herbicides, growth hormones, or antibiotics in our production of beef. Although we are not certified organic, we are very careful to use organic practices in raising our livestock. We never feed our cattle grain or corn or GMO crops of any kind – they are 100% grass-fed.

As consumers as well as farmers, we believe there is no better way to have confidence in where your food comes from than to know your farmer. We appreciate you supporting local farmers and choosing a healthy food source!

Baldwin Charolais Beef is produced by Baldwin Family Farms, a family-operated farm in the rolling hills of pristine Caswell County, North Carolina.

More than 35 years ago we selected the Charolais breed, which is legendary for efficiently producing high-quality, protein-rich, lean meat by natural grazing. Our Charolais herd thrives on our nutrient rich pastures, enriched by organic compost produced on our farm. No chemical fertilizers or pesticides have been applied to our pastures for more than 20 years.

Baldwin Charolais grass-fed, all-natural beef provides superior taste with significant health benefits. It is naturally lower in fat than most USA-produced beef, and is robust with natural flavor. It is dry-aged and minimally processed to enhance flavor.

Baldwin Charolais beef can be purchased from our farm outlet, our website, or at a farmers' market. We sell direct in pre-packed assorted cuts and quantities. Our "Mini-Sampler,""Maxi-Sampler" and "40-Jumbo Burger" boxes are very popular for smaller families and cook-outs. We also offer internet orders for customized boxes; beef quarters and sides are also available. VISA, MasterCard, and checks are accepted. We also ship out of state.

Beam Family Farms specializes in grass-fed and grass finished Beef, free-range Veal, pastured Pork, and FITO’s Dog Treats.

Psalms 34:8 says “Taste and See that the Lord is good” and we hope you will “Taste and See” how good beef and veal can be by allowing us to serve you our best.

Located in the Foothills of North Carolina, Beam Family Farms is a multi-generational farm dedicated to raising livestock in high quality, sustainable pastures for the duration of their lifetime. We do not feed corn, so our cattle can develop slowly. We never administer antibiotics, nor hormones. We chose the Gelbvieh breed as the foundation of our cattle herd because Gelbvieh cows are known for keen mothering instincts and an abundant supply of milk.

We also offer pasture raised pork with pigs outside rooting and running!

If you have pets, we offer FITO’s – dehydrated grass-fed beef livers. Dogs cannot resist.

We have excellent meat packages to choose from, including ½ cow, ¼ cow, 1/8 cow, ½ hog, and various package weights and specials from time to time on our website. We can ship, but we prefer you come to the farm and see just where your meat comes from.

BEEF: We start with a superior line of heritage breed Trask Polled Hereford. We knew Mr. Trask personally and have had Trask cattle on the farm since 1950. We choose animals that show phenotypic traits for finishing exceptionally well on grass based on information gained through years of studying the teachings of Gearld Fry and the late Charles Walters.

We rotationally graze our cattle, and use only small amounts of fertilizers approved for organic farming. We mix our own minerals with sea salt as the base. We feed no grain, grain by-products, or animal by-products to our cattle. Beef is dry-aged for four weeks and sold by the cut, half, and whole carcass. We have a waiting list for half and whole beef.

CHICKEN & EGGS: Our chickens free-range 500 acres and do what chickens do: scratch the ground, eat bugs, grass, and the soy-free feed we mill ourselves. We do not use commercial layer feed or animal by-products. We sell whole chickens, livers, feet, and brown eggs by the dozen and the flat (2 1/2 dozen).

PORK: Our pastured pigs spend their days doing what pigs do: rooting, wallowing, and eating weeds, roots and the soy-free feed we mill for them. Our heritage breeds include full and crossbred Berkshire, Duroc, and Hereford for exceptionally delicious pork. We sell pork by the cut.

We are located in the beautiful foothills of Anderson, SC, 13 miles from the Georgia State Line. Our family has owned and operated Double M Farm, Inc. since 1847 and produced the finest Grassfed Beef since 2004.

Our Beefmaster cross cattle were the first Beefmasters in North Carolina 45 years ago. We raise them exclusively on grass under an intensive rotational grazing program, holistic in nature, designed to improve pasture, soil and water retention. Our farm’s primary current efforts are concentrated on improving our soil and grasses, as we feel these contribute to our very own terroir of taste and flavor in our beef.

Beefmasters are a low-maintenance, easy handling breed of cattle. They receive no feed, growth hormones, nor antibiotics. They look forward to, and eagerly move to new paddocks of grass almost daily during the growing season, to produce our own exceptional beef flavor.

We also offer the best non-GMO pastured eggs available. Our chicken fruit yolks have shoulders and are a bright sun orange. We provide The Sweet Life Bakery, in downtown Concord, with these amazing eggs.

Hickory Hill Farm offers pastured Poultry, pastured Eggs, pastured Lamb and a pastoral setting for your family to enjoy some time outdoors. Come to pick up healthy clean food for your family, stay for a visit and enjoy some food for the soul! An easy drive from Richmond and Hampton Roads.

We are a grass-based regenerative farm, and all of our animals are moved frequently (sometimes multiple times a day!) or free ranged to give regular access to fresh pasture and the best nutrition. In brooders and winter housing, we bring fresh greens to the animals and use deep bedding and compost to keep everyone healthy. Feeds are locally milled, non-GMO. We garden organically and mostly no-till, using inputs like waste wood chips from local arborists and composted manure from neighboring farms to build fertility in our soils. This diverts materials that would otherwise go to the landfill, and turns “waste” into valuable nutrients.

As a new farm, we are investing in livestock now that will build sustainability into our farm. Chicks are not vaccinated, debeaked, or fed medicated feeds. We have heritage breed roasting chickens available in addition to the more common Cornish cross, which saves male chicks from being disposed of at the hatchery. Throughout our farm, we are planting berry patches, fruit trees, asparagus beds, and other vegetation that will feed our family and yours for decades to come. We value producing food that honors the value of each life, and it feels good to feed wholesome clean meats and veggies to our children. We are excited to offer that same nourishing food to our community!

Follow our progress online at www.hickoryhill.farm and come by for a visit, soon!

We do not raise any of our animals with antibiotics or hormones (ever!) and all of our animals live their lives on pasture, free ranging throughout our property. The products we raise are ideal for people following Paleo or Weston A. Price diets.

KW stands for "Kuska Wiñasun," which means "Let's Grow Together" in Quechua, and that is exactly our philosophy when it comes to providing nutritious, healthy products for you and your family. We raise our birds from infancy through the day of their processing, and we complete all meat processing ourselves. We believe very strongly in this accountability, and in the seasons of our animals' life cycle.

We also believe very strongly in running a sustainable homestead and business and want you to know that none of the bird you purchase is wasted. While you purchase the meat, we use all of the remaining parts and nothing is discarded.

Nature and sustainability education is important to us, and we have various outlets for sharing our homestead life with the public: our blog, our Farm to Your School Program, and our Kids Wondering educational videos. In addition to raising poultry, we raise gourmet mushrooms and other tasty vegetables.

We currently sell our products at The Corner Farmer's Market in Greensboro, NC and deliver our products to customers at various NC Triad and Southern VA locations.

Reverence Farms is a diversified, thriving polyculture. We treat our animals with reverence and grace, earthworms are cherished, and all critters eat a species-appropriate diet. Our pastured eggs are from chickens fed a locally milled organic ration, and our hens are moved to fresh pasture daily where they eat a full complement of bugs and fresh forages. Our broiler chickens get a fresh salad bar daily.

Rations for our poultry (chickens and turkey) and pig (pork) contain diverse proteins (including flax and field peas) to improve the taste and nutritional profile of our products and reduce our reliance on soy. The soy in our rations are different from conventional feedstuffs; it is derived from whole, roasted organic soybeans instead of soybean meal, an industrial waste product customarily fed to livestock.

The hens follow our dairy cows and sheep (lamb) in rotation, allowing the grass to regenerate to provide the best nutrition for all animals and the soil to capture carbon from the atmosphere. We raise our dairy calves on mama cows, with all the milk they can drink. The normalcy of running in a mixed-aged herd ensures the best and brightest dairy herd for the future, and an outstanding life to even the young males, which later become our signature ambrosia beef.

We are committed to whole food and diligent about the ingredients in our value-added products. We cure our bacon the old-fashioned way, using just salt (no nitrates) and molasses; our bulk sausages are free of sugar. 

Visit our Reverence Farm Store for Jersey, A2A2, grass-fed, raw pet milk; Grade A pasteurized chocolate milk and A2A2 buttermilk; pasture-raised, house-smoked BBQ to-go; or a house-prepared meal from our retail freezer. Open Tuesday–Saturday, 11–2.

We started this farm as a homestead to feed our family and we are serious about what it means to say, “This is food.”

The Sanders Farm is located in the foothills of Clinch Mountain in upper east Tennessee, close to neighboring Kentucky, Virginia and North Carolina. We have tended a small beef cow/calf herd at our family farm since 1979. We have kept our pasture and hayfields herbicide and pesticide-free for over 40 years. We use no antibiotics, pesticides or growth stimulants of any kind on any animal to be sold on Eatwild. Flies are kept under control with a walk-through fly trap and dustings of diatomaceous earth.

The calves I am selling eat only our own pasture and hay and their mother's milk. They free-range with their mothers and the rest of my closed herd until the day they are processed.

I prefer to sell my calves whole or by the half in the late Spring or in the Fall. Hanging weight for a whole beef is around 300 pounds (give or take 50 pounds) and take-home meat averages 200 pounds. I deliver your calf to a state-inspected butcher near Rogersville, TN and you pick up your frozen (vacuum-packed in plastic) meat there. You decide which cuts you want using a cut-list I will mail you. All the soup/stock bones and organs from your beef are also available to you.

My price, as of the spring of 2020, is $4.50 per pound of hanging weight and the butcher charges $.50 per pound based on hanging weight.

We would rather sell our beef calves to individuals who want untainted beef than into the feedlot industry where they live a little longer but in an unnatural and highly stressful way.

Beef, lamb and pork are sold in bulk packages through our seasonal meat sales and picked up on-farm. We also produce a variety of sausages, salami and hickory smoked nitrate-free bacon.

Please visit our website to be added to our mailing list for our seasonal meat sales. We sell out every year, and the feedback has been excellent!

Yesterways Farm is a second generation farm producing pastured chickens, eggs, pork, and beef. In days of yesteryear, farm and garden were the results of a tried and proven way of life. We have chosen a name for our operation that we feel reflects our effort in taking the best of those methods and way of life combined with responsible animal and land management to provide our customers with quality and wholesome products!

We practice pasture rotation which means we move the cattle regularly to fresh pasture. This is good for the pasture and for the cattle. They have access to clean water and free choice organic minerals. The cattle are free of antibiotics, hormones and other drugs. We use organic and unaltered soil amendments on our pastures. No chemical fertilizers, pesticides, or herbicides are used on the land.

The pigs are on pasture and woodland, spending their days rooting and feeding on plants and roots. They are fed a custom made feed to ensure they have a balanced ration. They are in a low stress environment that affords them exercise, clean water, and feed ration to produce quality pork.

Broiler chickens are raised in open-bottom pens and moved daily onto fresh grass. They are fed a custom made feed to ensure a quality ration. In addition to broilers in the fall, we offer roasters for those folks that prefer roasters over turkeys for the holidays. The goal weight is between 10 and 12 pounds.

The products are available at the Yesterways Farm market on the farm. Call or email for availability and other information.
