At Kummrow Farm's Battle Creek Beef & Bison LLC, we breed and raise both American Bison and Murray Grey cross Beef on our fifth and sixth generation farm located in Waukesha County.

Brass Family Farm: 100% Grass-fed Red Devon Beef
OUR PHILOSOPHY: We believe farmers have an exceptionally important calling: To grow and raise the most healthy, nutrient-dense food possible so that current and future generations can thrive and be nourished.
OUR GUIDING PRINCIPLES: We are not in the commodity beef business. We are in the food production business and are directly responsible for the health, intelligence, and longevity of the consumer. We refuse to compromise our convictions for the almighty dollar. Sadly, not every farmer or business shares in this philosophy.
OUR FAMILY: We are a 4th generation family farm located 5 miles Southwest of Rockford, IL. near Stillman Valley, IL.
OUR CATTLE: We raise Red Devon cattle. Red Devon cattle are one of the oldest heritage beef breeds in existence today. They are the breed that the Pilgrims chose to bring with them to America in 1623. George Washington also owned a herd of Red Devon cattle. Devon grass-fed beef has a particularly rich and robust flavor that is juicy and fine-textured.
OUR FARMING PRACTICES: Our herd is 100% grass-fed. They never receive grain. Our cattle are born on our farm and spend their entire lives on pasture. During the growing season, our herd is moved once a day to a new “salad bar” slice of pasture. During the dormant season, our herd either grazes winter cover crops or is fed grass/alfalfa hay.
Please visit our website for more information about our farm and our 100% grass-fed beef.
What we offer your family is the same meat we feed to our family. You get the very best of what our labors produce. Put another way, we won’t ever sell you something we wouldn’t happily eat ourselves.

Coulee View Family Farm is a small
family farm nestled in the steep terrain of the Coulee Region
of southwestern Wisconsin. Our farm is a family operation
where we all pitch in. Our animals are either free ranged,
day ranged or moved in portable pens. We do not routinely
use antibiotics, hormones or appetite stimulants. We treat
our animals respectfully and humanely.
Cornish Cross Broilers are fast growing
and processed between six and eight weeks. The fast growth makes them
ineligible for the Animal Welfare Approved program so we will discontinue.
Medium-Growth Broilers are processed between
eight and ten weeks. They have large breast meat and flavor slightly
superior to Cornish.
Slow-Growth Broilers are processed between
ten and twelve weeks. They forage better, grow slower and have a superior
taste that our grandparents would recognize as chicken.
Pastured Eggs are from pastured hens which
results in a healthier, better tasting egg.
Pastured Heritage Turkeys are available in
November for your Thanksgiving dinner.
Pastured Pork is available as whole, half
or quarter hogs and by the cut.
Limited Availability Meats: a limited supply
of duck, goose and lamb is available.
Potential Future Offering: include Chevron (goat), Pheasant,
and Guinea Hen.
We have recently announced the Coulee View Family
Farm Meat CSA. Our CSA is available in full, half, or quarter shares
for 6 or 13 months duration, and can be joined at any time of the year.

Double Drumlin Farm is a 100% grass-fed, Pinzgauer cow-calf beef operation located about 15 miles southeast of Fond du Lac, WI. Our family farm was founded in 1946 and remains in the same family today. We chose the Pinzgauer breed because they do extremely well on a grass diet, have a gentle temperament, have great maternal instincts, and produce lean, flavorful beef.
The cows and steers are pasture-raised using a rotational grazing method. They graze on a mixture of clovers, alfalfa, and a variety of grasses. The steers are finished on a diet of fermented barley forage that is grown here on the farm during the summer months. During the winter months the animals are fed 100% hay that is grown and stored on the farm. We grow all our crops and raise all the animals without the input of any chemicals, growth hormones or grains.
Beef is processed by a local abattoir and is sold in quarter, half or whole amounts by hanging weight. Orders can be processed to your liking.
We employ a philosophy in the care of our animals with good stewardship of our land and the environment having the highest priority. Our practice reflects our Christian beliefs that caring for our animals and using natural resources wisely is our God-given responsibility.

Grass Point Farms is a group of
farms whose dairy philosophy centers on the well being of
every cow on all of our farms. All of our farmers have pledged
to take every measure to ensure that their herds are humanely
treated at each stage of their life and that they are allowed
to thrive on their natural diets of grass while enjoying
their pasture life.
All of our farms and herds meet the third
party certified Grass Point Animal Compassionate and Grass
Fed Program Standards. These stringent standards, which are
unique to Grass Point Farms, require a nutritious pasture
diet without antibiotics or artificial hormones. The animals
are raised humanely in conditions that support natural animal
At Grass Point Farms we offer a very
special line of milk, cheese and butter products.
It is this diet that produces the purest, most wholesome
milk possible. Studies have shown that grass fed dairy products
have increased levels of CLA and Vitamin D (because the cows
get outside), which helps reduce body fat, increases metabolism,
combats clogged arteries, prevents or delays the onset of
diabetes and fights certain cancers.

cattle are not bred to be “oversized;” therefore, they produce
flavorful meat which is healthy with less fat.
We sell our beef in a variety of cuts and quantities
in order to offer our customers a wide selection. Our chickens are allowed
to forage on as much living grasses as they desire. Their diet is supplemented

The Grassway Farm is a diversified certified
organic (MOSA) grass-based dairy farm located
between cold, clean Lake Michigan and picturesque Lake
Winnebago. In addition to milking 100 dairy cows, we direct
market bulk chicken, turkey, brown eggs, beef and pork.
All of our animals (beef, pork, chicken and turkey)
are fed certified organic feed.
The farm consists of over 200 acres of fresh green
growing meadow grasses. After each milking our herd of jerseys and Holstein
cows takes a leisurely stroll to a new paddock of fresh grass and spends
the day grazing, ruminating and resting. The cows receive only 2-3
pounds of oats or barley, kelp, naturally mined mineral and sea
salt per day to help them maintain body condition.
On our farm, everyone grazes, so the egg-laying
free-range chickens are allowed to dine on juicy bugs, tender grasses
and a small amount of grain. Our pastured meat birds live in moveable,
open bottom pens out on the same pasture. They are protected from predators,
but can still enjoy the sunshine, bugs and grass. The Jersey steers graze
with the dairy cows to get the very best pasture plus a small amount
of grain. Finally, our "pigerator" pork comes from pigs that
are allowed to do what they truly love to do: root through and compost
the winter bedded pack from the cows.
We would love to hear from you. May you be able
to live close to the land.

During the winter we feed organic hay harvested during the summer. Our pigs spend their days exploring the wooded hillsides, returning to their home base at the end of the day to enjoy vegetable scraps from the packing shed. In addition, we supplement their diet with a blend of organic grain.
We choose to raise our animals in an environment where they can exhibit their natural behaviors and characteristics. We treat them gently and with respect so they do not live in fear of human touch or presence. This creates a much more pleasant environment for them to live in and allows us to work amongst them more safely.
We offer a variety of beef and pork packages for delivery in the months of May, November and December. All of our meat is cut and freshly frozen just ahead of delivery.

Helstrom Farms in northeast Minnesota is simply the best place to raise 100% grass-fed/grass-finished beef.
Our farm and pastures are surrounded by thousands of acres of forest which filter and purify the already clean air. We do not have to worry about chemical drift because large-scale agriculture is not practiced in our region. Through regenerative grazing practices, cool season forages grow in abundance which nourish the cattle. Meat chickens are are also rotated through the pastures and supplemented with all natural, non-GMO feed.
Orders can be placed online and shipped to your doorstep. We ship to a 7-state area or visit the farm for pick-up!

Hickory Springs Farm is nestled
in a beautiful picturesque valley with springs flowing from
the hillsides, many coming together to help form Seymour
creek. We have been MOSA certified organic since 1999
for dairy, we started the beef soon after. We also
have brown eggs, and broilers. We like to hatch
our own chicks for our laying chickens so there are occasionally
some very tasty five month old roosters to cull.
Our beef is USDA inspected The closest butcher is
an hour and half drive, Lederburs in Winona, MN. the beef is cryovac
packaged. The organic pasture raised broilers are also USDA inspected
and cryovac packaged at Decorah, Iowa.
We practice rotational grazing, though not intensive.
We don't have to chase our animals—for the most part they follow
us everywhere they want us to put them. The animals are beautiful to
watch and it's so relaxing to take a walk around the pastures to enjoy
them. Even though initially they come running and set up such a chorus
of bawling that you can't hear, they calm down to eating soon. We also
have seasonally asparagus, rhubarb, ramps (wild leeks), and watercress
lot'sa springs. Come for a visit, bring your tents, etc. and camp in
our woods. Several weekends are open. Gary and Darline & children.

The Honest Bison started as one family’s quest to eat healthier and get fit. When it turned out that sourcing authentic, unprocessed food was harder to do than it sounds, the family decided to do what they could to change that.
Our ranchers practice a method of ranching called Holistic Management, which promotes the growth of a large variety of native grasses that are in turn used to feed the animals. This enhances the flavor of the meat and eliminates the need for fertilizers, herbicides, pesticides, and other chemically enhanced farming practices. In addition to our pasture management, all of our bison are processed at USDA inspected plants. Our bison are raised on holistically managed ranches in South Dakota, Oregon, Montana, and Wisconsin. Our elk and venison are raised in Wisconsin and Minnesota.
We promise The Honest Bison will always provide meat of the highest quality—100% grass-fed and humanely and sustainably raised. If we wouldn’t feed it to our family and friends, we wouldn’t feed it to you.
100% Grass-fed Bison, naturally-grazed Elk and Venison we offer from our online shop:
- Steaks (Tomahawk, New York Strip, Rib Eye, Tenderloin, Sirloin, Skirt, Flank)
- Chuck Roast
- Sirloin Tip Roast

to zucchini. Composted manure and old fashioned hand weeding make the
best tasting produce.

and great-tasting product to our local community here in
central Wisconsin. We are located 6 miles north of Athens
on Highway 97, and everyone is welcome to visit the farm

While most of our lambs are home-born, occasionally
we do buy some feeders in the spring to better utilize our pastures.
Our lambs start out on their mother's milk and then are moved out to
pasture as soon as the spring grass starts growing. They remain
there until fall, then some are moved to another field where they are
finished on turnips and local hay. Only the lambs finished without the
turnips qualify for listing on Eatwild as only the turnip greens are
allowable. Our goal is to raise the lambs 100% organic, but we are not
The lambs are normally ready in November or
December, and we generally have lamb available through April of the following
year. Quantities are somewhat limited so order early. We usually use
a local processor, but can always take them to the facility of your choice.

We look forward to hearing from you. Our goal is
to have 100% customer satisfaction! Here is a testimonial from one
of our local repeat customers: "Your lamb is the best I've ever
had: so tender and juicy, just right. Next year I'm going to buy
five from you!"—Victor, Athens WI.

to feed corn).

McCluskey Brothers put the steak in your burger! We're grassfed beef producers, and when we grind our burger, we grind all the cuts but two (ribeye, tenderloin). Think ground sirloin plus. It's a burger beyond anything you've ever tasted.
Just as important, our farm is committed to making the planet a better place. We rotationally graze our cattle, frequently moving the livestock from pasture to pasture. These frequent moves – or “rotations” – give our pastures a period of rest and regrowth between grazings. Roots grow deeper, soils recycle more carbon, plants grow stronger, there's less rain run off and less soil erosion. Biodiversity is enhanced. All with the help of cattle doing what nature has always intended: graze grass.
We choose rotational grazing for a reason. Continuous grazing – giving cattle continuous access to the same pasture for the entire season – actually damages the pasture, weakens the plants and diminishes soil health. Honored to be among the first farms in the country certified Real Organic (2018), we're also USDA certified organic (certifying agency is ICS). And 100% grassfed at Shillelagh Glen Farms means no grain. Ever.
We're the 4th generation on our family farm, a farm founded on the belief everything is connected → everything from the sunshine, soils, plants and cattle on our farm to the food on your family table to the air we all breathe and water we drink. And that's the way we farm.
We're growing wholesome, healthy, flavorful food with sunshine, grass, and the rich organic soils of Shillelagh Glen Farms. Try McCluskey Brothers' grassfed beef and cheese, and maple syrup. Inquiries about beef shares (quarters or halves) welcome.

Milk & Honey is a suburban farm and cooperative located in Wauconda, IL. We specialize in grass-fed beef, pastured pork, pastured poultry (chickens and turkeys) and eggs, chemical-free produce, and natural lifestyle products.
We want to bring more flavorful and nutritious food to the table. We focus on soil quality and care for our animals in a way that honors them. We are grateful for the food they provide and show our gratitude by raising them as closely as possible to the way nature intended.
Our philosophy is that you are what your food eats. Our animals are pastured, which results in superior taste and higher nutritional content than conventionally-raised meat. Buying directly from our farm removes the middlemen and ensures optimal freshness.
All of our birds have access to the outdoors so they can do what they love most: forage for insects and even small rodents. We raise chickens year-round and turkeys seasonally. Both are naturally omnivorous, and it’s important to us to maintain their natural instincts.
We raise pastured pork year-round. Our pigs have access to the outdoors so they can root, even in the snow. We supplement the foraging of our poultry and pigs with food scraps from our farm and non-GMO feed that is free of animal byproducts.
We raise Scottish Highland pastured beef year-round. Highlanders, well-known for their large horns, are one of the world’s oldest breeds. Their thick, shaggy coats have a wool-like layer. making them well suited for Illinois winters. Grazing on pasture provides them with a happier, stress-free life, creates more nutritious milk for their calves, and healthier meat for us--in at least ten different ways. They receive a mineral supplement, plus apple cider vinegar in their water. We never use antibiotics or hormones.
Although we produce most of the items in our foodshed, we occasionally allow others, such as soap makers and beekeepers, to showcase their products that complement our practices and philosophy.

environment till they are at least 18 to 24 months old. Our beef comes
from animals raised within our herd only, and they are raised above the
USDA organic standards. Our animals graze on grass pastures spring, summer,
and fall. In the winter they munch on grass hay with shelter available.
Prices are reasonable—fair for the farmer and
for the consumer. The meat is state inspected and available for you to
pick up directly from the Richland Locker, in Richland Center, WI. Or
it can be delivered for a nominal fee.
Meat is available by the quarter, half or whole,
sold by the pound already processed. We also have hamburger by the pound
(minimum 10 pounds). All hamburger is lean and available now. Please
feel free to e-mail or call for pricing and availability.

Mountain Lane Farms, Wauzeka,
WI, is nestled in the hills of Crawford County. It is a place
where time stands eternal. Our Angus cattle graze 80 acres
of rolling pasture in the same way they did when my father
purchased the farm back in 1964. This provides our cattle
with a simple diet of sunshine, legumes, grasses and water.
While a simple approach, we believe this is best for the
animal and ultimately in producing the best beef.
As we are a minute operation, we currently do not
possess the means of rendering our product on site and shipping it direct.
Our philosophy is that when you buy from Mountain Lane Farms, you choose
the animal and witness firsthand where it was raised. You have an opportunity
to voice how you would like the beef prepared, etc. If you wish, we can
ship the animal to you. We have tremendous rendering professionals who
can customize your order. If you wish we can even bring your order right
to your door. We value you not only as a customer, but a new friend before,
during and after the sale.
As a small operation, we don't have all the amenities
of other operations. What we have is a food source that has been raised
naturally by good folks who are concerned more about you than your sale.
Give us a call, get directions and come see Mountain Lane Farms. The
cattle will continue to graze, but friendships are precious. Make friends
at Mountain Lane Farms.

At Narrow Gate Farm we believe
in raising animals in a natural environment. All our animals
are raised on pasture with stored hay as winter feed. We
work with mother natures' rhythms to produce some of the
finest quality beef, chicken, turkey, pork and eggs on
the market today.
Our grass-fed cattle graze on lush green grass ensuring
high omega-3s and a rich vitamin content in our beef. Our chickens
and turkeys forage for bugs and seeds in the fresh air, giving
their eggs orange yokes rich in beta-carotene. We are currently working on
Door County apple finished pork.
When you purchase beef from Narrow Gate Farm you
can get just the cuts you want. We sell individual cuts and packaged
bundles by the pound. Cuts available are: T-Bone, Rib-eye,

Nelson Creek Farm is a small family-operated farm in Central Wisconsin where we raise Heritage Tamworth pork and make pure maple syrup.
Our sustainable farming practices are inspired by a faith in the Creator of the universe and an awareness of our environmental stewardship responsibilities. Our 30-year background in the pork business on a large-scale hog farm (confinement facility) has given us first-hand experience in animal husbandry and a discovery of the multiple benefits and values of going back to a small-scale sustainable natural-raised approach.
The Tamworth Hog, a slower growing, sustainable natural grazer is considered the “bacon hog” for its long sides; yielding a unparallel amount of bacon and superb quality in the marbling, texture, and flavor.
We sell the following products.
- Pure Wisconsin Maple Syrup (call for pricing)
- Smoked Bacon (thick-sliced, approx. 0.5 pound) – $7.50/pound
- Smoked Steak (.75” thick, approx. 2 pounds) – $5.25/pound

- Smoked Hock (approx. 1.5 pounds) – $3.95/pound
- Fresh Steak (.75” thick, approx. 2.5 pounds, 2/pack) – $4.25/pound
- Shoulder Roast (approx. 3 pounds) – $3.95/pound
- Pork Chops (.75” thick, 2/pack or 4/pack) – $4.95/pound
- Spareribs (approx. 2.75 pounds) – $5.25/pound
- Fresh Brats (1 pound) – $4.95/pound
- Ground Pork (1 pound) – $2.50/pound
- Half or Whole Butcher Hogs available upon order and $100 deposit. (Typically, 3-6 months out) – $2.50/pound hanging weight of the hog.
Processing cost can vary but averages $95 - $110 per half depending on amount of smoked, etc.
From a 100-pound half the return is approximately 75 pounds of take-home meat and cuts and approximately 15 pounds of back fat for lard. (Actual hanging weight can vary by 30 pounds.) Hog cost is paid to farmer Jason Zimmerman and will be invoiced after hanging weight is acquired from the butchering company of your choice or our recommendation. Processing cost will be paid to the butchering company at date of pick up.
To check product availability, place an order, or to learn more about our farming practices please contact Jason Zimmerman. Talk with the farmer; know where your pork comes from!

At Ninepatch simple
pieces are carefully joined with a beautiful result. This
family farm is located 15 miles northwest of Wausau. No herbicides,
pesticides, hormones, antibiotics, or GMO seed are used in

We believe in grass based farming because we think it is
best for the people who consume the animals and poultry which
are grown on grass, best for the animals themselves, and
best for the environment.
In rumininating animals, health issues such as acidosis,
liver abscesses, mastitis and parasites are controlled naturally
instead of with antibiotics. The exercise of grazing, fresh
air, sunshine and fresh pastures are the core issues for
good animal health. Rogue proteins which cause mad cow disease
are not found in grasses but in supplements fed to animals
in confinement settings. Sound genetic selection enables
birthing ease, healthy young animals and docility. (Our sheep
and cattle are glad to see us and come when called. Remember
the invitation to come for a visit so you can see this.)
Human beings are the beneficiaries. They eat meat and poultry
from healthy creatures. Grass fed meat is higher in conjugated
linoleic acids and omega 3 acids which are cancer fighters
and weight controllers. Further, there is less total fat
and less saturated fat in grass fed animal products.
The environment benefits. Sequestering of carbon in the soil
occurs, slowing global warming. Reduction of wind and water
erosion occurs. Organic matter increases and nitrate pollution
reduces. Earthworm populations become abundant and soil enzyme
We want to be good stewards of the land and of the animals
on the land, and that means grass farming.
We produce beef, lamb and broilers. Turkey and pork raised
by Amish friends are also available.

Odyssey Farm, LLC produces premium pastured pork on our 32-acre farm outside Sun Prairie, WI.
Our farming methods focus on what is best for the animals and ecosystem. We raise our pigs as true to their nature as we can, giving them large paddocks with room to run and a variety of feeds from which to choose. Our Tamworths and Berkshires graze and root in pesticide- and herbicide-free pastures. Their diet includes non-GMO and organic feeds as well as windfall apples and garden leftovers of squash, melons, and brassicas. They do not receive antibiotics.
We move our pigs regularly to give them the freshest pastures while previous paddocks recover. But the pigs’ natural home is in the woods. We let our animals forage woodland paddocks in the fall where they eat acorns and hickory nuts like their wild kin. Doing our best by land and livestock rewards the eater with a redder, richly flavored pork.
We sell whole and half hogs as well as 25-pound variety boxes and individual cuts. On farm sales and visits by appointment.

At Rainbow Homestead we
practice sustainable and humane animal husbandry. Beyond
Organic, our holistic approach means farming within Nature's
patterns, with Nature's Rhythms. A place where wildlife flourish
alongside rare breeds of livestock, where heirloom gardens
and orchards nourish us even as hedgerows, woodlands, and
prairies provide haven for all manner of life. Our herbal
meadows provide the ideal diet for our livestock while providing
nesting sites, beneficial habitat, and sweet nectar for our
honeybees. Intentionally "human scale,"
we choose to homestead and husband our land in a way that
promotes harmony and synergy.
Our organic, rotationally grazed pastures burst
with an edible riot of colors and flavors: sunny dandelions, sky blue
chicory, lacy yarrow, sweet scented clovers, and tangy sorrel among the
green grasses. Cold-hardy forages like turnips and canola extend the
forage feast into winter. Humane treatment is important to us: our lambs
keep their beautiful long tails they're born with!
Our lamb and beef are raised using
100 percent forages—NO GRAIN EVER! Our pastured poultry and pork are
raised on high quality pasture in addition to certified organic grain.
100% GRASS FED LAMB and BEEF, PASTURED PORK and
POULTRY available. Customers may purchase at the farm, at the Madison
farmers market or mail-order from November to March. Local Natural Foods
stores also carry our meats.

At Snyder's Valley View Farm we
raise Belted Galloway beef and Katahdin sheep.
All of our animals are raised on natural pasture
during the growing season, and on hay that we grow ourselves during the
winter months. Our calves and lambs are born on pasture in the spring
and are raised on their mother's milk until they are able to graze our
pasture grasses, legumes and forbs. We use no herbicides or pesticides
on our pastures or hayfields, and practice rotational grazing, which
allows the animals to utilize their natural instincts to migrate and
look for the best food supply.
Our animals receive no growth hormones, no antibiotics
in their feed, and a very minimal amount of grain which is used only
for training purposes.
Both Belted Galloway Cattle and Katahdin Sheep are
known for their ability to produce lean, tender, flavorful meat when
raised in a grass based farming system, producing meats that not only
taste very good, but are good for your health as well.
We sell freezer beef by the quarter and half;
it is available at various times throughout the year. Lamb is
sold by the half or whole from December through April. Our meats are
processed by a local state inspected, family run facility, and can be
cut and wrapped to your specifications.

Summerdale Farms is located in Boone County, IL. We are nestled on beautiful rolling acreage with pastures, orchards, gardens and woods. The original farm was established in 1837. The land is chemical-free, and to our knowledge, has never had herbicides or pesticides applied, ever. We raise grass fed beef and pastured, free-range chickens. We are firmly committed to the utilization of natural farming methods that promote the health of our animals, our land, and our consumers.
We use Management Intensive Grazing techniques to rotate our cattle through lush pastures. The results of these methods produce lean, flavorful meat. The animals are raised in the healthiest, most natural environment possible. All our animals enjoy the pure water from our private well. Our water is free of fluoride, bleach, and chlorine.
The cattle have unlimited access to pastures year round. We grow most of our own alfalfa and grass hay for winter feedings. We do not give them growth hormones, vaccinations, maintenance antibiotics or animal bi-products. The cattle have peaceful lives and are allowed to run together in a herd as nature intended.
Our chickens are also outside, running free in their pastures from dawn to dusk. They spend most of the time pecking and scratching at seeds, plant material and insects. We supplement their diet with Organic and Soy-Free feed. The birds grow slowly over 10 weeks and are quite large, finishing out around 6 pounds. They are processed by a local USDA-approved facility. The meat is absolutely delicious, tender, and succulent.

At Together Farms, we believe in sustainable farming and lovingly caring for all our animals. It seems the more we learn, the more we want to grow our own food. But without you, the customer, our small farm dream could never become a reality.
First, we search for the best-tasting foods we can find - typically means heritage breeds that tend to grow slower than their high-production counterparts where taste and personality are ignored. We raise Tamworth & Large Blacks (swine), Duclair ducks, assorted heritage turkeys, White Park (beef) cattle, Tunis & Leicaster Longwool sheep, and Freedom Ranger meat and other heritage egg chickens.
All of our animals are in managed grazing systems. Things we don’t use on the animals: antibiotics, growth hormones, medicated feed or chemical de-wormers. In our finished products, there are no: nitrates/ites, MSG, preservatives, colorings, etc. Minerals and supplements, you ask? All absolutely natural (e.g., apple cider vinegar) so you know you are getting a nutrient-dense product. If our soils are not healthy, our animals will not be healthy. We are also working towards being totally free from soy-based feeds. [Check out Weston A. Price's Soy Alert page to learn more about soy and why we care.]
We are Certified Naturally Grown and Animal Welfare Approved and we are now out of our 3rd transitional year to be certified organic. We are working toward full certification by the end of 2013. The beef and lamb are 100% grassfed and approved by the American Grassfed Association.
We also offer “S3” Soap - an old-fashioned, cold processed lard soap! We use only all natural ingredients - check out our website or our Etsy page (www.etsy.com/shop/StephsSuperSwineSoaps).
Meat is available in wholes, halves, and CSA shares. Email/call for bundle options, pricing and drop-offs.

Uplands Cheese, Inc. produces
and distributes Pleasant Ridge Reserve, a unique, traditional
style farmstead cheese.
Pleasant Ridge Reserve is an artisan cheese made
from the milk of a single herd of Wisconsin cows fed and managed using
natural "old world" practices. Our cows graze lush pastures
from early spring through fall and we produce cheese only when the cows
are fully on a forage ration of vegetative pasture. Cows are supplemented
with a ground grain mixture comprising 25% of their ration while on pasture.
Pleasant Ridge Reserve is the end product of a process
that is inextricably linked to the seasons and life cycles of our animals,
as well as to the prairie soils and climate of southwest Wisconsin. The
sweet flavors of the pasture grasses, herbs, wildflowers and clovers
is detectable in each morsel of our product. We hope you will try Pleasant
Ridge Reserve and agree with us that producing food slowly, deliberately
and with pride is a value worth preserving in our hurried, industrialized
