A Dozen Eggs, LLC is a small family-run farm. We sell eggs from our hundreds of pasture raised chickens, all raised at the farm since they were several days old.

The chickens leave their coop in the morning and come back to sleep at night. All of the new chicks coming to the farm are shipped as day-old chicks so no other poultry is introduced. Humane animal treatment, No hormones, no antibiotics.

We have a wide variety of local products, jams, jellies, cheeses, seasonal fruits, and grass-fed beef from a local USDA Organic farm.

We are 10 minutes from Brunswick, Maryland and 10 minutes from Charles Town, West Virginia. We sell onsite and deliver to parts of Great Falls, Sterling, Reston, Herndon, Lansdown, Ashburn, and Leesburg. Delivery fee may apply.

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 water.

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. Please visit out website for more information.

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 processing.

Customers can order by phone (434) 983-9721 or online at enquiries@forestfed.com. We also run a buying club and have drop-off points in Northern Virginia and Southern Maryland. To join our buying club, email us and we will add you to our notification list.

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.

Davis Creek Farm is a small family farm in the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains between Charlottesville and Lynchburg. Since 2001, we have raised heritage breed Red Poll beef cattle, older breeds of laying hens (eggs), as well as pasture-raised broiler chickens. (As of 2014, we no longer produce broiler chickens.)

We also produce smaller quantities of fruits and vegetables. Unlike most grocery store produce, however, we do not rely on CAFO fertilizer. Rather, our animals feed on our produce and in turn fertilize it, creating a perfect cycle. We not only provide a physical alternative to factory farming by raising animals solely on pasture, but more importantly, we seek to honor the life that feeds us and our community. We recognize that our animals and plants teach and sustain us, and we are humbly grateful to them. All plants and animals are loved and thanked throughout their lives for their sacred contribution to the whole  

Our fruits and vegetables receive only organic fertilizers from our animals. Our animals' diet consists of grass, certified organic alfalfa, sea kelp, natural minerals, and hay in winter. We use a very small-scale, family-run processor dedicated to humane treatment of the animals. Unlike store-bought beef, they dry-age the meat.

Our beef, eggs, and produce are not only good for you, but customers say, "you can taste the love." Local chef Rachel Willis described our beef as “absolutely the best-tasting grass-fed beef I've ever had.”

Please see our website for basic information. We welcome visitors!

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 and legumes.

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. There are many orchards and vineyards in this area that are open to the public.

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.

Pigs 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 call or email for availability and prices.

Polyface, Inc. is grassfarming guru Joel Salatin's family farm. Nestled in Virginia's Shenandoah Valley, the farm was launched in 1961 by Joel's health-conscious parents. The family has never used chemical fertilizers, pesticides, or herbicides, making this one of the oldest environmentally friendly farms in the United States. Polyface has been the working model for many of the farms in this directory and has been featured on ABC News and in the Smithsonian magazine.

Four hundred families and numerous restaurants rely on Polyface for salad bar beef, eggs from free-ranging hens, ready-to-lay pullets, and pastured chickens, turkeys, rabbits and pigs. Some customers drive 300 miles round trip to pick up their products.

It may be inconvenient for customers to have to drive to the farm, but there's a hidden benefit: they get to see exactly how their food was raised. Children may benefit the most. According to Joel, "Kids enjoy seeing and petting the animals, romping in the fields, and learning firsthand who, what, where, when, why, and how their food was made."

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.

To ensure 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.

Farmers Markets: You can also look for us at the Staunton Farmers Market (Saturdays) and the Highland Farmers Market (Fridays).

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. We encourage visits to our farm.

Running River Ranch raises Scottish Highland Cattle, South African Boer Goats, and Horned Dorset Sheep. We offer live steers for sale, as well as quarters, halves, and whole beef, cut to your specifications. Highland beef is extremely lean and flavorful. Healthy and delicious lamb and goat is also available, as well as raw goat's milk for pet food (not legal for human consumption).

At Running River Ranch, we are dedicated to raising healthy livestock, naturally. Our concern about additives—such as antibiotics, hormones, steroids, preservatives, etc.—in our 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.

Halal processing available. Se habla espanol, tambien.

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 those 35 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 DE. 

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 the 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 is around 300 pounds (give or take 50 pounds) and take-home meat averages 200 pounds. I deliver your calf to a family-owned and operated butcher in Bulls Gap, TN and you pick up your frozen (vacuum-packed in plastic) meat there. You decide how long you want your meat aged and how you want it cut and packaged.

My price, as of the summer of 2014, is $3.50 per pound of hanging weight and the butcher charges $.50 per pound based on hanging weight. However, due to the rising prices in the livestock market and of all consumer products and labor, my price as well as the butcher's fee will most likely have to go up before long. 

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.

Sarver Heritage Farm is a 3rd generation beef farm on 250 acres of beautiful rolling hills in the Organ Cave area of WV.

This is a ‘forever’ farm, via the Farmland Protection Program. Basically, we’re a couple of hermits who avoid bright lights and buzzwords, off in the highlands raising the best darn beef you’ll ever taste. We’re the first, and so far the only, AGA-Certified Producer Farm in West Virginia. Our farming practices are featured in an international agricultural magazine and two upcoming books devoted to artisanal beef. Our practices, animals and records are fully documented and audited annually by AGA; we’re real, not buzz. We are what happens when you turn an artist/philosopher and a biology geek/animal lover loose with grandpa’s cattle farm.

If you’re looking for extremely lean grass fed beef—we can’t help you. Our Angus/Galloway herd produces beautifully marbled, dry aged steaks from fully fat-covered carcasses. Food reviewers swoon over it. From the Artisan Beef Institute: “I’m in hamburger heaven.” From Craig “Meathead” Goldwyn: “…the Platonic ideal of the modern steak.Sooooo beautifully beefy and best of all, balanced.”  Yes, it’s that good. No, you can't get thirty pounds of Rib Eyes.

Nutrition testing data is on our website and our FB page, (yes, we care enough to have our own testing done), as is all the information folks try to convey or imply with buzzwords.

Our beef is USDA inspected and available by the cut at all HealthSmart Stores, The Alderson Food Hub, and through our Online Store. We offer Split Sides, Half, and Whole Beef from the farm only; prices based on hanging weight, pre-order/deposit required. Please see web site for details.

Other farm products:

  • Handcrafted Organic Soaps
  • Jams from our own pesticide/herbicide/fungicide-free fruit, cane sugar and pectin - and nothing else,
  • VERY limited quantities of poultry, raised Free Range on organic feed: Eggs, Capons, Fryers and ‘Broilers,’ Heritage Breed Turkeys.

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.
