Cliff's Homegrown Beef sells pampered grass finished beef by the 1/2, 1/4, and Bundle. We truck locally, or ship UPS from the South Dakota/Minnesota border area.

Our beef start life on the native prairies and once weaned move to high quality, high energy, grass alfalfa mix or similar quality winter forage. Our beef is free of hormone implants, and antibiotics. The SOILS here in South Dakota are geologically young, being from the most recent Wisconsin glacial advance. They are still rich in trace minerals that today have been leached out of older more weathered soils. The cattle get supplemental salt and minerals, but much is provided to the plants by the soil and of course from the plants to the animals.

The cattle here are from moderate framed older style genetics. Small groups that survived the shift to mass-produced feed lot beef during the past 30 years. The thing I like best about this system is what it means to the animal. A feedlot is dust and flies, or mud and muck, shoulder to shoulder at the feed bunk. Nature is not always kind, but it is life closer to what was meant to be.

Dakota Harvest Farm is located in very extreme South Dakota, a few miles away from both Iowa and Nebraska. Dakota Harvest Farm raises Dorper lambs in a natural environment. Dorpers are a “hair” sheep rather than wool breed and are specially developed for the quality of their meat.

All of our lambs are born and raised naturally with their mothers on our pastures so we can guarantee that they’re healthy. They spend their time on pastures getting plenty of fresh air, sunshine, and clean water as they roam. In the winter months, they are fed alfalfa hay, also grown on our farm, to provide them with optimum nutrition and health. In turn, they produce a lean, healthy, nutrient dense and protein rich meat.

We don’t administer growth hormones or antibiotics. We do not feed any animal byproducts. We do not apply artificial fertilizers or chemicals on our pastures.

Our specialty items include Lamb Filet Mignon, Lamb Summer Sausage, and Smoked Leg of lamb. Other lamb products are:

·  Leg of Lamb (boneless)
·  Lamb Chop
·  Shanks
·  Spare Ribs
·  Shoulder Chop
·  Ground Lamb

We do ship our fresh lamb to your house.

The Fortune Ranch is offering Angus beef, raised on our ranch and finished on grass, directly to your home. We strive to deliver you a wholesome product that is competitive with the supermarkets, but with a higher degree of quality.

Grass fed beef is beef in its natural state before it is "finished" on grain, usually corn, in the feed lot process. Our animals are not confined. They feed only on native grasses supplemented with natural plant proteins in the winter, and are raised as "naturally" and as stress free as possible.

Grass finished beef has numerous health benefits. It contains up to 50% less saturated fat and as much as six times less total fat than grain finished beef. The level of CLA (Conjugated Linoleic Acid), a cancer fighting fatty acid, is up to 5 times higher in grass fed beef than in traditional beef. Grass fed beef is also higher in Omega 3—a fatty acid which is essential for human growth and development.

Unlike much of the beef at the major supermarkets, our cattle are born and raised on the ranch. This assures you, our customers, of a wholesome beef product that is undeniably 100% Made in the USA.

Maveric Heritage Ranch Co. is dedicated to raising endangered breeds of livestock, in the manner that nature intended. Animals at Maveric are raised with respect, compassion and healthy doses of attention. Most are known by name and personality.

All animals are raised on no-spray, rotational grazing pastures, lush with a variety of grasses, clovers and native plants. Our form of grazing—one species after another—enables us to fully utilize the forage available, as well as control parasites, weeds and erosion. This enhances the quality of the meat while renewing the natural environment. Winter feeding consists of hay from our own property. We do not feed any hormones, growth stimulants, antibiotics, animal by-products or unnatural ingredients. Beef is strictly grass/alfalfa fed. Hogs, goats & sheep eat a diet of pasture and supplemental vegetables, grains, & beet pulp. Mineral supplements for all breeds include Sea kelp, diatomaceous earth, molasses and trace minerals.

Heritage Breeds available at Maveric: Belted Galloway Cattle, Mulefoot Hogs, Guinea Hogs, Hereford Hogs, Jacob Sheep & LaMancha Dairy goats.

Products from Maveric Heritage Breeds: Grassfed Beef. Pastured Pork, lamb & goat sold by whole, half, mixed quarters (beef only) or by specific cuts. Processing done at a USDA Inspected/Certified butcher, and cut & wrapped to your specifications. Pick up at the ranch or UPS Shipment available. Call or email for availability and current pricing.

Rosebud Beef Ranch, a small family-owned ranch in south central South Dakota, can provide you with tender, healthily grass-fed beef in split half's, half's, and wholes. Our local locker, which meets state and federal regulations, can process and ship your meat to most places in the US. We are considering providing individual cuts of meat should sufficient interest develop.

Our management program starts by selecting cattle that are genetically capable of producing tender, tasty beef on grass. We use Lowline bulls (www.usa-lowline.org) on selected Angus/cross cows as the basis of our program. Lowline cattle, developed in Australia and served in some of their finest restaurants, are genetically tender due to their smaller size and shorter muscle fibers. Our Lowline/cross cattle are 20–30% smaller than our Angus cows, which means smaller meat cuts and a lower initial cost for you when purchasing a half or whole beef.

All of our grass-fed animals are raised strictly on our native and tame grass pastures and because of our SD winters, they are supplemented with our green alfalfa hay. Our understanding is that green grass and/or green hay are essential to producing the highest amounts of omega 3 and conjugated linoleic acid (CLA) in the grass-fed meat.

Our land is devoted to producing feed for our beef cattle. We became convinced of the health benefits of grass-fed beef in 2001, which is when we started our grass-fed program. Because of our tenderness and other criteria, the number of grass-fed animals we offer for sale are few but will increase over time.

Thankful Harvest is a grass-based, organic farm applying organic management for the benefit of the consumer, the environment, the animals and the farm.

We supply 100% grass-finished beef; 100% grass-finished lamb; organic, pastured, free-range poultry (chicken and turkey); and organic, non-soy farmstead eggs.

We feed our crops minerals based on detailed soil testing so that the crops are able to put more nutrition into what the animals and the consumers eat. If the minerals are not in the soil, they cannot make it to the table. We feed our chickens organic flax which is shown to increase beneficial fatty acids in the eggs. We strive to deliver maximum human nutrition to your family's table.

Wild Idea Buffalo Company was started by owner, rancher, author Dan O'Brien. Wild Idea Buffalo Co. was conceived by Dan's environmental concerns and prairie restoration passions. By using the native specie "Buffalo" as a tool in those endeavors, not only are the eco-systems improving, but we are also able to produce the healthiest red meat available today. The buffalo are raised on two ranches, which are located on the prairie in the shadow of the Black Hills of South Dakota.

Our animals roam in large pastures and are 100% grass fed. They are never subjected to antibiotics, growth hormones, steroids or confinement. In addition to that, we harvest the animals humanely in the field under state inspection.

Wild Idea Buffalo Meat is lower in calories, cholesterol and fat then any other red meat or chicken available. Although we are a small company, we do supply like minded health food markets and restaurants that support sustainable agriculture such as Staple & Spice Health Food Store in South Dakota, Harraseeket Inn, Freeport ME; Heatland Cafe, Chicago IL; Vincent's, Phoenix AZ; and The Gilbert House, Gilbert AZ.

Wild Idea Buffalo meat offers a variety of cuts. Our product is frozen and shipped directly all over the country, via UPS or Fed-Ex. It is available by calling us directly or through our website. Please visit our website for more information. We look forward to hearing from you.
