Request for Inclusion in the Eatwild Directory

Being listed on Eatwild.com is your most cost-efficient marketing tool. To date, we've had over 9 million visitors to the site, with up to 16,500 visitors per day. The bulk of them are looking for local suppliers of pastured products —don't miss out!

We welcome new suppliers who meet the following criteria (revised 4/10):


Criteria/Production Standards for Listing on Eatwild

  • We raise our animals in a low-stress, natural environment and treat them humanely from birth to market.

  • When high-quality pasture is not available, we feed our ruminant animals (cattle, goats, sheep, bison, deer, elk, antelope, etc.) stored grasses, which can include hay, haylage, and grass silage. We do not feed them grain, soy, corn silage, or concentrate.

  • We raise our dairy animals on pasture with little or no grain or concentrate. [Eatwild will list you if you feed your dairy animals a small percentage of grain—6 pounds/day or less—provided you specify the type and amount. This information must be included in your listing and does not include dairy breeds sold for meat.]

  • We raise our poultry outdoors on good-quality pasture as soon as they are old enough to withstand outdoor conditions. They may be confined in coops overnight to protect them from predators or when weather conditions would be injurious to the birds, but are on quality pasture for at least six hours a day, whether in moveable pens, open fields, or areas fenced off with electric netting or other fences that are moved frequently to maintain a fresh supply of greens. (Note: Having “access to the outdoors” is not enough. The birds must be getting a significant amount of their nourishment from growing plants.) They may receive grains and seeds because, unlike ruminants, they cannot get all the nutrients they need from grass.

  • We raise our pigs or rabbits outdoors on good pasture. (As is true for poultry, they can be given supplemental grain, nuts, seeds, fruits, and other nutritious foods in addition to grasses.)

  • We do not treat our animals with hormones.

  • We do not treat our animals with routine, low-level antibiotics. Those animals that we do treat with antibiotics due to health problems or injury are removed from the program.

  • We do not confine our animals indoors or in areas without pasture except to protect their welfare during brief periods such as prior to and during birthing, or during extreme weather conditions. They may also be confined for brief periods to prevent "pugging" of the soil during wet weather. Poultry and other small animals may be confined at night to protect them from predators.

  • We protect our streams and other natural water sources from harmful animal impact.

  • We manage our animals' grazing to enhance the growth of the pasture, the health of the land, and the nutritional value of our products. To do this, we take into account the specific soil conditions, vegetation, altitude, growing season, and temperature range of our climate.

  • Organic certification is desirable, but not essential.

If you have questions about the criteria and whether or not you qualify for listing on Eatwild, send us an e-mail (listings@eatwild.com) or call (253) 759-2318.

Eatwild reserves the right to remove a supplier from the website if there is reason to believe that the supplier does not meet these criteria, or if for any reason inclusion of the supplier might reflect negatively on Eatwild.


Getting Listed

If you meet the above criteria and want to be added to the Eatwild Directory, complete the form below and send it to us either by mail, e-mail (listings@eatwild.com) or fax (253-759-2318). The cost is $50 per year, and includes one free update per year. (Additional updates cost $10 each—due when the update is requested, not with your initial payment.)

The annual and update fees, along with sales from the Eatwild Store, help keep the Eatwild website online. Eatwild receives no outside funding, and, at the current time, accepts no advertising. Sales from the Eatwild Store support the website, but do not fully cover costs.We receive no profit from the sale of animal products on our site; all the money goes directly to you. Many ranchers tell us that eatwild provides them with more contacts than all their other marketing efforts combined. For some, Eatwild is their only marketing tool.

* Note: Prior to February 1, 2011 Eatwild charged a one-time only fee for listing. At this time, suppliers who registered before February 1, 2011 are not required to pay the annual fee.

P.S. Visit our Producers' Corner page for information geared specifically to Eatwild farmers and ranchers.


How To Transmit Your Listing and Payment

1. The fastest way to get listed: pay for your listing online in the Eatwild Store, then cut and paste the form below into the body of an e-mail and send it to listings@eatwild.com. Do not try to send the form directly from this page; the information you entered will be lost. It MUST be pasted into an e-mail or sent as an attachment. (Click here for directions on how to cut and paste the form.)

We will post your information when we receive payment. We do not charge your credit card until your listing is actually uploaded, so if for any reason you do not qualify for listing on Eatwild, we will void your order.

2. The not so fast method: e-mail your listing to us (see directions above), then call 253-759-2318 to pay with a VISA, MasterCard or Discover card. Unfortunately we are no longer available on a regular basis to take your phone call, so you may need to leave us a message and we will get back to you.

3. If you don't get along well with computers, or don't like to use your credit card online, print out the form below, write or type in your information, and send the completed form along with a check for $50.00 payable to Natural Health Network, LLC to:

Eatwild
P.O Box 7321
Tacoma WA 98417

Once the listing is online we will send you an e-mail and ask you to check it over for any changes or corrections.


We suggest that you read listings of other farms in the Eatwild Directory for models of style and content. Some items to include:

  • Products offered and when and where they are available
  • Your farming philosophy or practices. (Be brief!)
  • Do you ship or deliver?
  • If you are certified organic, include name of certifying agency. If you use organic practices but are not certified, please state the practices that you use, but indicate that you are not certified.
  • Are your poultry/eggs soy-free? Do you have special humane slaughtering procedures?
  • If you sell your meat or dairy products at any farmers markets, grocery stores, or restaurant, please include them along with addresses.
  • Do you participate in any buying clubs that are open to new members? If so, please provide contact information.
  • Do You Ship? If so, please explain any restrictions/qualifications.

Cut and paste this form into an e-mail (listings@eatwild.com). (See directions below.) Do NOT send it directly from the website!

Request for Inclusion Form 

Note: If you are submitting a listing for a cooperative group of farms or include pastured products in your listing that are raised on a farm besides your own, each farm will need to provide their contact information, and sign the statement certifying that their products meet Eatwild's criteria. Multi-farm listings will be accepted on a case-by-case basis.

Additional state listing: If you are located near the state line or do business in an adjoining state, we will consider adding your listing, free of charge, to one additional state. If you wish us to add your listing to a second state, please list that state here:

By typing my name below I certify that the products included in my listing meet the Criteria listed above, including NO grain for ruminants: cattle, sheep, goats, buffalo, deer, elk—except for dairy cows which may receive 6 pounds/day or less).

Updating an Existing Listing

Please keep your listing up to date! Let us know about phone or e-mail changes, the addition of a website, new products, etc.

There is no way for you to make the changes yourself, you will need to send them to us in an e-mail or by mail and we will upload them. There is no charge if you are just changing an e-mail or website address, but there is a $10 fee for other changes. This helps keep Eatwild alive and well, making it a more effective marketing tool for you.

Pay the fee online, by phone (253-759-2318), or by check, then send the updated information to listings@eatwild.com.

I receive more customers from your website than all of my other advertising and marketing efforts combined.

Not only are you a valuable resource to all of us who are determined to take responsibility for what we eat, but an invaluable  help to people like me, who are "on the land" producing grass-fed products.
