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!

Getting Listed

If you meet the criteria listed below and want to be added to the Eatwild Directory, complete the Request for Inclusion form below and send it to us either by e-mail or mail, along with the $50 per year annual listing fee. The annual fee covers the next 12 months from the date your listing is uploaded, plus one free update within that timeframe. (Additional updates are $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. 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.

Criteria/Production Standards for Listing on Eatwild

We welcome new suppliers who meet the following criteria (revised 2/18), but please note, if you are submitting a listing for a 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.

  1. Animals are raised in a low-stress, natural environment and treated humanely from birth to market.
  2. Streams and other natural water sources are protected from harmful animal impact.
  3. Animal grazing patterns are managed to enhance the growth of the pasture, the health of the land, and the nutritional value of products, taking into account the specific soil conditions, vegetation, altitude, growing season, and temperature range of our climate.
  4. When high-quality pasture is not available, beef and other ruminants (goats, sheep, bison, deer) are fed stored grasses, which can include hay, haylage, and grass silage. They are not fed grain, soy, corn silage, or concentrate.
  5. Animals are not treated with hormones.
  6. Animals are not treated with routine, low-level antibiotics. Animals that do receive antibiotics due to health problems or injury are removed from the program.
  7. Animals are not confined 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.
  8. Dairy animals are raised on pasture with little or no grain or concentrate. (Dairy animals may receive a small percentage of grain—6 pounds or less per day—provided the type and amount is specified and included in the listing; this does not include dairy animals sold for meat.)
  9. Poultry are raised outdoors on good-quality pasture as soon as they are old enough to withstand outdoor conditions. Note: Having “access to the outdoors” is not enough. Poultry must be on quality pasture and getting a significant amount of their nourishment from growing plants 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. We approve of feeding grains and seed to poultry because, unlike ruminants, they cannot get all the nutrients they need from grass.
  10. Pigs or rabbits are raised outdoors on good pasture. (As is true for poultry, pigs and rabbits can be given supplemental grain, nuts, seeds, fruits, and other nutritious foods in addition to grasses.)
  11. Organic certification is desirable, but not essential. If certified, certifying agency should be specified.

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

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. We may also remove your listing if you fail to keep the contact information it contains up to date.


How To Transmit Your Listing and Payment

1. The fastest way to get listed: Cut and paste the form below into the body of an e-mail and send it to fro@eatwild.com along with a request for an electronic invoice.(Click here for directions on how to cut and paste the form.)

2. The slow method. If you don't get along well with computers, or don't like to use your credit card online, print out the form below, fill in your information, and send the completed form along with a check for $50.00 to

Lilliwaup WA 98555

What to Include

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

  • Products offered and when and where they are available
  • Your farming philosophy or practices. (Be brief!)
  • Do you ship or deliver? If so, please explain any restrictions/qualifications.
  • 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 offer a buying club that is open to new members?
  • Do you want to include your prices? If so, be aware that most updates cost $10 and you will probably need to update your listing often to keep your prices up to date.

Note: Co-ops and/or multi-farm listings will be accepted on a case-by-case basis. If you are submitting a listing that includes pastured products raised on a farm besides your own, we may request contact information and a signed statement from the other farm(s) certifying that their products meet Eatwild's criteria.


How Long Does It Take?

We generally upload listings within 48 hours on weekdays, but this can take longer if we have questions about your eligibility or farming practices or if we are unavailable for some reason.

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

If you don't hear back from us within a week, please email us for an update as we receive a large volume of mail and may have simply missed yours.

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 your contact information, e.g., contact person, address, phone number, e-mail or website, but there is a $10 fee for changes to the listing itself.

Please send the updated information to fro@eatwild.com along with a request for us to email you and electronic invoice, or mail a check to Eatwild, PO Box 99, Lilliwaup, WA 98555.

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.

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.
