Autumn Grove Farm is better than organic.
Our beef cattle and heritage breed turkeys free-range
on 90 acres of pasture land without the use of any biosolid fertilization,
nor do the animals receive any growth hormones, steroids, or unnecessary
antibiotics. The turkey grain supplement is custom blended and several
of the ingredients are organic certified. Both cattle and turkeys have
24 hour access to clean water supplied directly from underground wells.
Our ponds and creeks are kept animal-free to ensure and promote healthy
We practice pasture rotation, keeping the pastures
in good condition for grazing as well nutrient value. This also allows
the land to absorb the benefits of the natural animal waste fertilizer
without over saturating the land and causing waste runoff to contaminate
natural water supplies. The cattle and turkeys receive plenty of vitamin
D direct from nature's sunshine, and they enjoy clean air and all-day
snacking on fresh green salad.
We encourage everyone to educate themselves as to
the true definition of organic. We are not certified organic because
the term "organic" has—in our opinion—been diluted.
For instance, current organic certification allows animals to be raised
in cages with limited access to true free-range pasture grazing and to
receive a limited amount of sunshine. We do use many organic practices
such natural fly control through the use of natural fly traps, muscovy
ducks, and fly parasites.
Our beef and turkey are sold locally in central Virginia.

Babes in the Wood is a small, family-run
pig farm in central Virginia. We raise our pigs in the forest, which
is their natural habitat. With 2-3 pigs per acre there is plenty of
room for them to roam and forage for food. This method is sustainable
and benefits the woodland.
Our pigs are never confined (our sows even give birth
in the woods!) Subsequently our pigs are not only happy, but they also
produce superior pork. Because it is 100% free range, the texture of
our pork is outstanding. It also has a particularly wonderful
flavor as their diet of nuts, berries, etc. is reflected in the taste.
We specialize in a rare British breed called the
Tamworth, which is known for its particularly rich and distinctive flavor
and is especially suitable for raising outdoors. Our pork is free of
hormones and antibiotics. We sell a range of cuts, plus sausages and
bacon. In addition, we offer whole live hogs for spit roasts or for custom

Beatrix Farm raises pastured poultry and forested
pork in White Post, VA and serves the Shenandoah Valley and northern
VA regions. Our poultry is raised in clean, bright, open-air brooders
for their fragile first few weeks and then transferred to pasture where
they are kept in movable pens and day-ranged. They have sunshine,
protection from the elements, and fresh pasture since they are moved
twice a day. They are fed a non-medicated, hormone-free grain in addition
to the grass and bugs they forage.
Our pigs are rotated through the forest. They love the ample shade and
the leaves of saplings as well as all the produce we can get them. They go wild
for the acorns and the grubs they find in the woods.They also are fed a
vegetarian, non-medicated grain supplement.
We sell our chickens as whole broilers and our pork in whole, halves, and by
the cut. Simply call or email us if you'd like to place an order or visit the
farm. Don't forget to visit our Facebook page for news, events, and photos!

Berriedale Farms is located in the Cowpasture River Valley of Virginia. Nelson Hoy and Lizzie Biggs together have made life-long commitments to preserve the unique grass-fed genetics of Red Poll cattle – recognized by the American Livestock Breeds Conservancy as a threatened heritage breed. We endeavor to raise the healthiest and the most flavorful, tender and juicy grass-fed and grass-finished beef anywhere east of the Mississippi River. Our vision is to become the small family farm of choice for 100 households.
- Red Poll cattle at Berriedale Farms are raised on native grasses, legumes and forbs, and further, finished on grasses.
- Berriedale Farms does not give our Red Poll cattle growth hormones, prophylactic antibiotics, or insecticide implants.
- Berriedale Farms ensures that our Red Poll cattle have free access to the same cool, clear and pure water that Nelson, Lizzie and our guests drink at the farm house.
- Red Poll cattle at Berriedale Farms have free-choice access to essential minerals and salt.
- Berriedale Farms treats its Red Poll cattle in a humane fashion – i.e., we do not use herd dogs or electric cattle prods, or separate individuals from their herdmates. Additionally, we patronize a certified humane meat processing plant.
- Red Poll cattle at Berriedale Farms are given the best veterinary care possible, including: vaccinations, antibiotics, surgeries, and multifaceted fly control measures.
- Berriedale Farms allows its Red Poll cattle the time, space and forage necessary to achieve their natural physiological maturity. In other words, we do not rush to market and sacrifice grass-fed beef quality for the economy of throughput.
Nelson and Lizzie are conservationists. The farm and forest lands, water and river, and heritage livestock breeds of Berriedale Farms are governed by a progressive conservation easement held by The Nature Conservancy.

Bold Branch Beef raises grass fed and finished beef in the heart of Central Virginia and is only ten minutes from downtown Lynchburg. Our Black Angus cattle graze naturally on pasture their entire lives, never eat grain, are never given antibiotics, and never administered growth hormones. Pasture based farming results in heart healthy and superior tasting beef due to the abundant forages available to the animal, the crystal clear spring-fed creeks, and the low stress lifestyle these animals live. It's not hyperbole to say we raise cattle the way they used to be raised and in the manner that they are naturally supposed to live.
Terroir, or "land" in French, is a complex concept used most often in the wine world, that expresses the idea that land, water, climate, and geology manifest themselves in a unique tasting experience. Because of these environmental interdependencies, we go to great lengths to ensure that the biodiversity of the farm is encouraged in order to have a healthy farm and healthy cows. This leads to happy cows and happy cows produce great tasting beef.
We have Meat Share programs available where we will deliver a consistent amount of beef, either monthly or bimonthly, right to your home. Delivery is free and this program provides folks with the ability to plan meals ahead of time, reduces the hassle of ordering by deciding on a convenient delivery time, and is a more economical option than buying beef by the pound. This is a great option for people who want a consistent supply of beef and want to receive specific cuts every time. We have a few Meat Share plans available but we can always put together a custom order for you. For more information, please email us.

The Chapel Hill Farm, near Winchester, VA,
turns back the history book to the way beef is supposed to taste.
Chapel Hill Randall Linebacks live very much as they would have hundreds
of years ago. Ranging free on the grasslands of historic Chapel Hill
Farm and drinking only limestone springwater, the Randall Linebacks,
America’s ancient and rarest cattle, provide the discriminating
and health-conscious gourmet the finest beef in the world.
Several hundred years ago, American farmers created
the Randall Lineback through mixing European breeds to form a distinct
blend that would naturally withstand the special rigors of the New World
and that would provide meat, dairy products, and oxen. These animals
were the ideal breed for subsistence farming in America. Randall beef
was on America’s table before feedlots, before antibiotics, and
before growth hormones. Because of their heritage, Randall Linebacks
have finely grained meat with little intermuscular fat. Add to this the
fact that they are grassfed and the result is meat that has an intense
clean taste and is much better for you than conventional breeds of beef.
You are saving the endangered Randall Lineback breed
when you eat Chapel Hill Randall Lineback rose-veal and beef by
thus encouraging producers to raise more of these rare cattle. In addition,
you have the pleasure of tasting a natural beef which has not been commercially
available for more than a hundred years. Beef sides cut to order, USDA
inspected, available from the farm; separate cuts available at Salamander
Market, Middleburg, VA.

Glen Eco Farm is a small,
diversified farm, committed to sustainable agricultural principles.
We produce a variety of fresh vegetables in season and market them
at a local farmers' market, directly to customers who come to the farm,
and also through a small CSA which we launched in 1998.
We maintain a small flock of pastured laying hens
from which we sell eggs during the farmers' market season and
year-round at the farm. We offer optional egg shares to our CSA customers
during the CSA season and collaborate with a nearby pastured broiler producer
to sell some of his product to our CSA patrons. During the winter months
our eggs can be bought at several retail outlets in Harrisonburg, Virginia.
Once a year, usually in the fall, we have older spent hens that
we offer for sale to customers who want to use them as stewing meat or
as feed for pets. We prefer to sell them live at a fair price.
We have recently sold most of our beef herd and are
no longer offering beef products either by the cut or by the side.

Gryffon's Aerie is run by Collins & Ramona
Huff and their two children in Western Albemarle County, nestled at
the base of the Shenandoah National Park. We raise American Milking
Devon and Beef Devon cattle and Tamworth pigs, and Karakul sheep.
We have worked diligently over the years to breed one of the largest
purebred American Milking Devon herds in the United States. Leading
experts in the beef and cattle industry consider our genetics to be
superior for grass finished beef.
Our goal is to produce the finest grass-fed beef and
natural pork, which is why we chose heritage breeds. We feel that
heritage breeds are best suited to grass feeding because that was their
original diet and their genetics have remained unaltered.
Our cattle are raised on lush pastures from birth
to finish. They do not receive hormones, unnecessary antibiotics, or
grain which may contain animal by-products. We do not use herbicides
or pesticides on our pastures. The cattle are rotated on a daily basis
to new pastures and are followed by other livestock to further enhance
the soils. In the winter cattle are moved to alpine meadows
at the back of the farm that are stockpiled with cool season grasses
Our natural pork are all free-range. The Tamworth
pigs are known as the "Irish grazers." Most of their diet is
made up of grazing high quality grasses and foraging for nuts and berries
in the woods. We never put rings in their snouts. This is cruel and inhumane—a
pig's nature is to root. These pigs are friendly, intelligent, highly
vocal and take particular delight in a good belly rub. They are the "personalities
of the barnyard." We supply several other pork producers with young
pigs for their natural programs. We have over twenty breeding sows
and two different lines of boars.
Our animals are never separated from their mothers;
natural weaning is paramount. Although it may slow breeding production
slightly, we feel that it makes for a healthier, happier livestock. The
animals are not just our livelihood, they are our companions and our
responsibility. It is our mission to raise and harvest them in a stress-free
and respectful environment.
All meat is processed at USDA facilities that meet
our strict humane slaughtering guidelines. Nothing is wasted. Bones are
used to make stocks and demi-glace, the hides are tanned, and wool is
spun into yarns. It is all part of our mission, and that of the American
Livestock Breeds Conservancy, to protect the genetic diversity and integrity
of heritage livestock.
We encourage you to come to the farm to purchase
your products, we offer a truly unique farm experience. Located just
2 miles north of White Hall only 15 minutes west of Charlottesville.

Pink House Pigs is a small family farm where we raise purebred Tamworth
and Tamworth crossbred pigs on pasture.
Tamworth is an old heritage
breed that is long and lean and manages quite well living off the land
with minimal help from the farmer. They are beautiful red pigs
and make great crosses with other breeds because of their distant relation.
Our crossbred pigs combine the leanness and hardiness of the Tamworth
with the meatiness of other large traditional breeds.
Our pigs are
free to graze in fields of clover and orchard grass, snooze in the shade
of the woods, root, (nothing short of concrete stops them, and we have
none of that) and just do what pigs do naturally. Piglets are naturally
weaned. No growth hormones or routine antibiotics are used.
are available as feeder pigs (weaned piglets), or whole grown hogs for
barbeques or your freezer etc. You may pick them up directly from
the farm, or we can deliver to the butcher for you. We also have
a variety of pork cuts and sausages available from the farm. Please

Rappahannock Natural Foods Cooperative provides "Rappahannock
Real-real food from real farmers."
The RNF Coop is a small farmers’ coop formed
with the idea of allowing customers in the Washington DC area to shop
at one reliable source for all their local and natural farm products.
We stand behind our products as being locally produced and humanely processed
in a local slaughter house.
The RNF Coop enables customers to shop for beef,
lamb, pork, goat, chicken, eggs, produce and fruit all in
one convenient place—either in our Sperryville, VA. farm store
or on the web.
Through the Coop, you can buy from the member farm of your choice and
your purchases will be delivered to you on a weekly basis at your home
or a convenient drop off point.
To accommodate different tastes, we offer
a variety of products, from certified organic to plain and natural. But
whatever the diet, you will find it specified in the farm section. And
it is all local. (Note: In addition to their grass fed beef and lamb,
the Coop also offers beef and lamb which had a supplemental diet of grain,
but still roamed around freely in the pasture. These products are clearly
labeled both at their farm store and online.)
Our members are mostly small farmers from
Rappahannock and surrounding counties. Their families have been
farming the land for untold generations, some going back as early
as the 1700s. All raise their livestock
in a humane and natural way without the use of hormones or unnecessary
antibiotics. They grow their produce and fruits without unnecessary and
harmful pesticides. Cows roam freely in green pastures, chickens
scratch for grubs and seeds around the barn, pigs stroll outside or roll
in the mud as they please, and lambs dart around in the clover.
that our products are what we say they are, the Coop visits and inspects
each of its members’ farms on a regular basis. We have one non-farming
board member from the city who represents our customers and helps us
to better understand our customers’ needs.

Riven Rock Farm, located in beautiful Highland County, Virginia, is a 200-acre balance of mountain pastures and upland hardwoods. Our goal is to produce fresh, local farm products using organic practices and wise stewardship of our lands. We raise 100% all natural, grass-fed Belted Galloway beef.
Our purebred, heritage breed Belties are rotationally grazed on fresh mountain meadows and represent the best in grass-fed tenderness and flavor. Belted Galloway beef is extremely high in Omega 3s and CLAs, which promote good heart health. The flavor is exceptional.
Our operation is anti-biotic free, hormone free, and we only feed organic mineral supplements with a Thorvin Sea Kelp base. We never employ commercial wormers, instead relying on good practices and organic minerals.
Our beef processing is humane and stress-free. With our new Allegheny Highlands Ag Center only 2 miles from the farm, our cattle aren't subjected to long, stressful transport either.
We sell our beef by the half or quarter, as well as USDA inspected cuts. We will have between 10 and 15 beeves for the 2012 season.
Our farm also has local raw honey available, usually in the early fall. We have free range, laying hens that follow our cows around the meadows, and will be offering free-range eggs in 2012.
We invite you to visit Riven Rock Farm and stay with us at our Laurel Run cabin. Come see for yourself, how Belties, combined with great grass, sunshine and water can create exceptional food. Please call or email us to order your beef or arrange a visit to Riven Rock.

Roffey Cattle Company is owned and operated
by David Roffey, a retired veterinarian. The farm is approximately
260 acres of pasture and woodlands in Southwest Virginia.
Although not organically certified, our goal is a
sustainable, symbiotic grass farming operation. The centerpiece of the
farm is our Red Devon beef herd. The herd is in its sixth year
of development, and now consists of over 100 head of Devon Cattle. The
end goal is to produce the high quality "Devine Devon" grass
finished beef that the breed is known for.
Free-range chickens, layers and broilers complement
our cattle production. Geese are also available seasonally from
our gaggle. Beef is sold by hanging weights in quarter and half carcass
lots. Poultry and geese products are available at the farm seasonally.
Free-range forest reared pigs will soon be added to our farm operation.

Cattle, South African Boer Goats, and Horned Dorset Sheep. We offer
live steers for sale, as well as quarters, halves, and whole beef,

and delicious lamb and goat is also available, as well

At Running River Ranch, we are dedicated to raising
healthy livestock, naturally. Our concern about additives—such

food supply, and the rise in food-related allergies among friends, family,
and the U.S. population in general, forms the basis for our "natural" philosophy.
We have selected hardy breeds of livestock and employ
sound management practices, such as overseeding pastures with legumes
and seasonal forages, pasture rotation to control parasites, and balanced
nutrition, to keep our animals healthy. Our livestock are fed a grass
and legume-based diet and we do not add hormones, growth enhancers or
antibiotics to their feed.
We sell vacuum-packed, USDA inspected beef, goat
and lamb. We also take custom orders prepared in accordance with
your specifications. Shipping options include pickup
at butcher shop or UPS dry ice pack to your door. Delivery of live steers
is available within a 150-mile radius.

herd at our family farm since 1979.
We have kept our pasture and hayfields herbicide

are always free-ranging with their mothers and the rest of the closed
herd until the day they are processed.

200 pounds. I deliver your calf to a local butcher and you pick up your
frozen meat there. You decide how long you want your meat aged and how
you want it cut and packaged. My price is $2.50 per pound of hanging
weight and the butcher charges around $.40 per pound based on hanging
I also at times have milk and grass-finished beef
by the package. It is USDA inspected and weighed, vacuum-packed and frozen.
I will email you a price list. Pickup for this meat would be in the Rogersville,

who want untainted beef than into the feedlot industry where they live
a little longer but in an unnatural and highly stressful way.

no antibiotics or growth-promoting hormones, and you never have to worry
about animal byproducts in their diet.
We employ intensive rotational grazing, which allows
us to fulfill the sheep's natural desire to graze on the freshest feed
possible and to naturally fertilize the land.
We lamb once a year, so the supply is limited. Currently,
we sell only whole lambs and half lambs. Intimidated by buying that much
lamb? Don't be. Check out the “FAQ”
section on our web site.
We invite you to enjoy the fruits of our labor. Eat
Local! Eat True!

Tucker Family Farms. Our "farm to family beef" is
produced using the grass found here on our farm at the foot of the
Blue Ridge Mountains. Our farm is a recipient of the Chesapeake
Bay Soil and Water Conservation Award and our family was named
the National Beef Producer of the Year in 2000 by the Beef Improvement
Federation. We are also certified by the Beef Quality Assurance Program.
The beef that you buy is backed by over 25 years
of experience and a commitment to the care of our animals and the land.
Careful breeding for traits such as muscle and marbling allow us to offer
not only a product that is farm raised, but is superior in quality.
Fifty years ago family farms were prevalent in Virginia
and most people either lived on or were one generation removed from a
family farm. People knew who grew their vegetables, gathered their eggs,
and raised their beef. There was a relationship between the family sitting
down to eat a meal and the family who grew the meal. We at Tucker Family
Farms want that back—not only for our family, but for the people
who believe that how your food is produced matters. We hope that you
will share that vision.
We also offer internships for those interested
in learning more about a career in farming. We offer "A Day on the
Farm" programs for an interactive experience on a cattle farm.
Please call us for more information.

Waverly Farms is a completely local,
integrated, sustainable farm that raises pastured beef,
poultry, eggs, goats (chevre), vegetables, herbs and berries.
We raise beef, goats, llamas and poultry exclusively
in pasture with shelter, clean water, free access to our own hay, and
minerals from organic or natural sources as available. Animals
are rotated across 235 acres of lush Virginia pasture and forage woods
according to a planned sequence that is most beneficial for the soil,
pastures and animals. All
pastures and animals are free of pesticides, herbicides, growth hormones,
preventive antibiotics, preservatives and additives. As a result,
we have beautiful, productive pastures and excellent tasting, rich, nutritious
beef, poultry, eggs and chevre. We participate fully in conservation
practices with Piedmont Soil and Water Conservation District as well
as the National Resource Conservation Services division of USDA. Our
animals are harvested in our pasture and processed locally using
only the most humane and respected procedures.
Our vegetables, herbs and berries are grown
in gardens using our own composted goat, cattle and llama manure for
fertilizer, supplemented with organic or natural fertilizers only when
absolutely necessary. Organic
and natural insecticides and fungicides are used only in extreme cases.
Most insects are removed by hand. Weeds are pulled by hand or managed
through cultivation only when absolutely necessary. Although
we follow organic guidelines and practices, we are not Certified Organic.
Each year, we offer a limited number of vegetable+egg CSA shares and
sell quarter, half, three-quarter or whole beef and goat shares "on
hoof." Whole pastured chickens are coming soon. We
assist customers in processing their meat into individual vacuum
sealed, dated and weighted cuts that are freezer-ready and provide many
months of fresh, clean beef and chevre that are always free of hormones,
pesticides, herbicides, antibiotics, preservatives and other additives.
CSA shares and beef are delivered directly to our
customers who, along with their families and close friends, are invited
to visit our farm anytime and encouraged to enjoy the farm during our
Farm Days and other events.

Winn Family Farms—"Sheep + Seed
+ Sunshine = Grassfed Lamb"
Farming in America since 1626, Winn Family Farms
is entering its twelfth generation of operation. Two of our three farms
are recognized as Virginia Century Farms.
Dedicated grassfarmers, the Winn Family produces
a flock of hair sheep solely on pastures and hay produced without pesticides.
Our animals receive no antibiotics or growth-promoting hormones, and
we do not feed any animal by-products, grain or other supplements, except
for a mineral blend specially formulated for sheep.
Utilizing USDA-inspected harvest and packaging, and
NCDA-licensed refrigerated transport capacity, the Winn Family can bring
the safest possible locally-produced lamb directly to you or your neighborhood
butcher. We can meet demand for lamb cuts, whole lamb, and live lambs
throughout the entire year.
A reasonably good selection of cuts is kept on-farm
for consumers' immediate needs, and live lambs may be bought any day
by appointment. We request a ten-day advance order for whole carcass
or locker lambs cut to your special order. This allows for dry-aging,
butchering, and freezing in vacuum-sealed packaging. We can accommodate
special religious needs at harvest.
All of the animals are fenced out of riparian areas
to preserve soil and water quality. They receive free choice mineral
and fresh wellwater in unlimited quantity. The flock is protected by
perimeter fencing and Maremma livestock guardian dogs.
As we approach the beginning of our fifth century
in American agriculture, the Winn Family seeks to bond with consumers
who want to know the men and women who grow their food. As with all that
we do, we sell our lamb with a full satisfaction guarantee.
When you choose how to spend your food dollars, we
hope that you will select Winn Family Farms as one of your favorites.

Wolf Creek Farm, located between Charlottesville
and Culpeper Virginia, provides grass-fed, natural beef. Our
mission is to create a sustainable farm that produces health and enjoyment
for our livestock, our community, our customers, and ourselves. Nestled
in the Blue Ridge Mountains, we want to reconnect people to a more
natural, wholesome, and healthy existence. We are seeking people from
all walks of life who share our vision of how a farm should service
its community and provide them with the ability to order natural products.
We selected cattle to be the mainstay of our farm
due to our affinity with this truly gentle creature that has historically
connected mankind with the natural world. Therefore, our beef is the
way most people come to know us. Cattle are the centerpiece at Wolf Creek
Farm, but we do offer several other grass farming based services and
welcome friends and neighbors to come visit us.
As grass farmers, we steward the soil, woodlands,
and riparian ways with only natural amendments and methods. As traditional
animal husbandry men, we raise our herd with no force-fed hormones or
antibiotics and commit to provide healthy and nutritious beef from our
farm to your table. Our beef is processed at a USDA inspected artisanal
abattoir, dry-aged and then flash frozen in vacuum packs. It is available
for on-farm pick-up in quantities of: whole beeve, side, quarter, large
box (eighth), or small box (twentieth). Delivery can be arranged within
50 miles of the farm for orders of a side or greater.
For more information please visit our website, or
contact us by phone or e-mail. We are happy to answer your questions,
take your order, and arrange your visit to the farm.
