The birth of Fockler Creek Farm was the result of two common stories: A father with diabetes, and a son who wanted to farm but saw no way in. Sound like a strange combination? Shouldn’t in this day and age. Through the experience of a serious case of diabetes (6 shots a day) being cured with whole foods, and a dream of farming becoming reality with the use of innovative and unconventional techniques, Fockler Creek Farms took flight! Brian the previous farmer-to-be, and Scott the cured diabetic, along with their wives and children, now raise grass-fed, grass-finished beef.

Fockler Creek Farm’s mission is “To implement and develop systems of agriculture that result in solvent farmers, sane people, and sound ecosystems.” Since we are all part of the whole, the creation, the ecosystem, or whatever other term you use to describe it, our mission directs us to provide you with food that nourishes and heals. We’re very passionate about this as we have seen the difference it has made in our own lives. We’re also very passionate about promoting farmer-centric methods of agriculture and ways of farming that affirm the value of life.

For more detailed and technical information check us out on our website, focklercreek.com. We look forward to connecting you with the best our farm has to offer!

Fruitful Seasons Dairy is a family operated small farm located near Alexandria, MN.

We are providing raw milk cheeses crafted from our small herd of Jersey cows. Our dairy is seasonal so the cows calve in the Spring. We move them to a fresh strip of grass several times a day. The cows also have free choice Thorvin Kelp and Redmond’s Real salt.

The pastures are maintained to optimal quality without chemical fertilizers or herbicides. When pasture season is over, most of the cows are dried up for the winter and we stop making cheese until the next spring.

We make our cheese from unpasteurized, fresh, clean milk so that all the beneficial properties of the milk are still intact. The cheese is ready after aging 60 days. We do not treat the cows with antibiotics or growth hormones. The left-over whey is given to the pigs which are on pasture.

Currently most of the cheese is sold locally but we can ship it directly also. Please check our website for available varieties and other seasonal products like eggs, pork and beef.

The Grass Fed Cattle Company is a small cooperative of local family farms, located within 150 miles of the Twin Cities. GFCC farmers are committed to naturally raising healthy animals without the use of antibiotics or added hormones.

Our cattle are 100% pasture raised and finished. We use the term "beyond organic" to describe our sustainable systems of beef production, which we believe are capable of transcending the standards affixed to foods and processes currently categorized by the term "organic."

We sell 100% grass fed beef by the eighth, quarter, half and whole directly to people all year round who desire a natural, healthy, and affordable product. We also offer a Beef CSA option where people who don't have a deep freezer can pick up a few different times throughout the year. The GFCC is conveniently located on 50th Street & France Avenue in Edina. Once an order is placed, we schedule a convenient time for customers to have their beef personally delivered right to their vehicle.

Our cattle are processed at a USDA inspected, family run facility, Lorentz Meats, in Cannon Falls, Minnesota. Each cut of meat is vacuum-sealed, frozen, and labeled with specific cut and weight information. Ground beef comes wrapped in 1-pound packages.

Orders can be placed online, by email or by phone.

Harmony Valley Farm has been dedicated to growing the highest quality certified organic vegetables for over 40 years. Our farm, located in beautiful southwest Wisconsin, is co-owned by Richard de Wilde and Andrea Yoder. While our focus is on growing vegetables, animals are also an important part of our farm and help us maintain hillside pasture areas not suitable for vegetable production.

Our vegetables and meat are distributed throughout the Midwest through our CSA program. We offer CSA share delivery in the following areas: Minneapolis and St. Paul, MN; Madison, WI and the greater Madison area; La Crosse, WI; Onalaska, WI, Viroqua, WI.

We raise certified organic, grass-fed beef and pastured pork. Our beef cattle are rotationally grazed on pastures in the spring, summer and fall. 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.

HD Beef Works is a family owned and operated business (since 1972), located just south of the Twin Cities metro area (off of I-35 and Highway 19) in Northfield, MN. Our farm is committed to bringing you the healthiest and finest quality 100% grass-fed beef in the area with all the benefits it can provide. Our grass-fed cattle are never given antibiotics or growth hormones. We do not use insecticides or commercial fertilizers.

You will not find an assembly line when you visit our farm in Northfield, MN. Rather, the production of 100% grass-fed beef is a process that requires flexibility in order to deliver consistency. We use reliable methods of sustainable production, high quality genetics and pasture grazing. This method provides our cattle with a lower stress environment in order to produce the best tasting, most tender and nutritious meat.

Our cattle are raised in a semi-wild state and have free range on our pastures. We feed and finish all of our beef on fresh-grown perennial natural grasses. We are small enough to intimately care for our land as well as large enough to raise herds of premium grass-fed beef. Our beef is harvested when the animals are ready. The beef is processed in a state inspected facility; it is dry-aged fourteen days, butchered into individual cuts, vacuum packed and frozen.

Beef is available for purchase year round. When you purchase beef from HD Beef Works, you can select from smaller packages of traditional cuts or purchase a quarter or half and work directly with the processor to determine your cuts. Pick-up is encouraged (come visit the farm); delivery is available. See our website for additional information and pricing.

McCann's True Cost Farm offers chickens, eggs, lamb, pork and sausage and is dedicated to raising the best tasting food possible. The fine flavor and texture of our products is a result of our focus on quality.

We use healthy, genetically diverse plants and animals. They grow in natural, pleasant living conditions and are treated with care and respect. True Cost Farm is proud to raise food according to what is true and what is right. No shortcuts.
Unfortunately, most producers focus on quantity, not quality. Their methods produce food that's deceptively cheap – but there are many hidden costs.

Conventional farming practices churn out bland, uninspiring foods which have dire and expensive consequences for individual and public health, the quality of our water, air and soil, animal well being and much more.

One of our goals is to repair the soil on our property and to continue to refine and improve our production practices. Each animal we raise reduces the number of animals raised in less humane conditions while providing you with a tasty and more nutritious meal. The products you purchase from us are a big help towards building our sustainable farming business.

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.

One click brings 100% grassfed goodness direct to your door. Yes, we ship!

Misty Meadows Farm. We believe God has given us our farm to raise healthy food to share with others. We want to be good stewards of the land and be sustainable in our practices, which means farming without chemicals.

Misty Meadows Farm has had a goal of producing quality, 100% grass fed and finished beef and lamb, as well as free-range chicken and eggs. We take great pride in offering you meats free of hormones and antibiotics, naturally and humanely raised. We practice management intensive grazing which offers the animals a variety of fresh "salad bar" grazing regularly.

Our meats produced on pasture provide many health benefits. They are rich in CLA (conjugated linoleic acid) which is a natural cancer-fighting amino acid, and Omega 3 fatty acids (which we lack in our diets in this country). We want to make our farm, your farm—a place where you can buy safe, healthy meats.

Our products are available year-round. We are located 15 minutes north of Rochester, Minnesota just off of Highway 52 North. We are also at the Rochester Farmers Market every Saturday, 7:00 a.m. to Noon, from May 1 to October 31.

At Nelson Grass Farm, we pasture-raise pigs (pork), laying hens (eggs), and chickens.

We farm from the soil up. We care for the soil as it is a living thing. We use regenerative farming practices to ensure the plants in our pastures have a rest period, we do not use chemicals that kill the living creatures in the soil, and we use nature to help fertilize and maintain the grasses we grow. When our soil is healthy, our plants will be healthy and then the animals that eat our healthy plants will be healthy. We benefit from eating our healthy animals; they are full of nutrients that came from our soil.

Our animals have had no chemicals, GMOs or antibiotics digested from either the soil, plants, injections, or other feed eaten. All animals are moved frequently to fresh pasture, are forage-fed, and fed non-soy organic supplemental feed if biologically necessary. We are truly passionate about regenerative farming and using holistic practices at Nelson Grass Farm.

We currently have delivery set up in the St. Paul / Minneapolis area, St. Cloud, and locally in Mora. The farm is also open for visitors and to pick up products.

Our website, Instagram and Facebook page have more details and pictures of farm life.

Oakwood Farms LLC was started by Kevin and Landi Tenkley. We primarily offer pasture-raised Yorkshire/Berkshire-cross pork. After selling our grass-fed beef herd and relocating to South Dakota, we made it our sole mission to start a farm where locals could purchase quality pasture-raised meats.

We both grew up in a farming environment and enjoy everything being a farmer can offer. We strive to provide quality products to our customers as well as to be good stewards for the animals and the land.

Our mission is to raise happy pigs in an environment where they can truly thrive and live life the way it was intended by being out on pasture and not in confinement.

Lowline cattle are smaller framed than most commercially raised beef cattle in the U.S. today. Their smaller size helps create high quality beef on a forage diet without the need for grain supplements. Lowline cattle are very calm and this works well with our low stress livestock handling procedures. We do not use growth hormones or antibiotic supplements on our cattle.

We sell our 100% Grass-fed beef by the quarter, half, and whole directly to our health-conscious customers. Individual cuts of Grass-fed beef can also be ordered on our website. We will deliver locally or you can arrange to pick up your order at the farm.

Pettit Pastures is proud to be certified by the American Grassfed Association (AGA), signifying that we raise our cattle 100% grass-fed. AGA defines grassfed animals as those that have eaten nothing but grass and forage from weaning to harvest, have not been raised in confinement, and have never been fed antibiotics or growth hormones. In addition, all AGA-Certified Producers are American family farms and their livestock is born and raised in the U.S.

Ritscher Family Farm is a fifth generation family farm located in picturesque Buffalo County in western Wisconsin. The farm is a mixture of forested hillsides and fertile meadows that produce a bounty of lush grass, the foundation of our all natural farm.

All of our animals are raised naturally with no antibiotics, growth hormones, or chemicals. We are not certified organic but everything that we do is well within the organic standards. All of our animals are produced right here on our farm so that we can personally vouch for the humane treatment and the highest quality of care. All of our meat is processed at local USDA inspected facilities that have the highest quality standards. We sell meat by the individual cut as well as in numerous bundles.

Visit our website or online store for a complete list of our products and prices.

Schlangen Family Farm converted to organic practices in 2000 and continues to grow food for our traditional foods community. We walked away from USDA certification (after 8 years of declining standards), and now specialize in pastured, mono-culture-free (no soy, corn, wheat—NO influence of monsanto) transitional eggs, chicken and pork—as well as fresh greens all year long. Cert Organic is fine for commercial scale; we can do more. We believe in the right to own your food at the farm (anyone can farm)!

In the process of representing our Trad Foods Community in preserving our right to real food and natural health, we’ve built a system of sustainable farms that serve hundreds of families. Our options are available thru Freedom Farms Coop, a collection of private food club members that know what it means to commit to a real, nutrient-dense food system. Check out www.farmmatch.com for local resources across America! Be well, Alvin.

Shepherd Song Farm raises 100% grass-fed lamb and goat meat. We believe pasture-raised is absolutely, without a doubt, better for the animals, better for the environment, better for your health...which is better for you! We make a commitment to you to NOT use pesticides on our land and to use NO animal by-products, antibiotics or hormones. Our lambs and goats grow naturally on Wisconsin meadows. The cool northern summers of the upper Midwest produce outstanding pastures producing premium, lean lamb and goat in a healthy environment.

Our livestock spend their days in the open air and sunshine grazing our lush, green pastures. Our young stock spend the majority of their time safe with their mothers within the protective flock learning to choose from diverse forage. We do not confine our animals to stalls, on concrete or in feedlots.They routinely carry out their natural behaviors such as grazing, browsing, lactating and exploring their environment as appropriate to their species. Quality of life for our animals is one of our main values.

We are a small family farm. We use sustainable and holistic farming practices that improve the soil, increase biodiversity, and are beneficial to our local community's environment. In practice this means what we take out of the environment we put back in, so land and resources such as water, soil and fertility can be replenished and are available to future generations.

Our products are USDA inspected, vacuum-packed for quality, and meet high standards for freshness, tenderness and flavor. Individual cuts or family value boxes can be purchased year round. Religious requirements can be met such as halal certification.

Snake River Farm: Bison, Beef, Hogs, Sheep, Goats, Geese, Ducks, Turkeys.

We raise bison, beef, hogs (pork) and lamb for direct sale to consumers, by the ¼ and ½.

All our animals live in natural groups, in pastures. We use no chemicals, hormones, or unnecessary medications.

The Snake River winds through our 240 acres for more than a mile, creating a unique landscape of native prairie, oak savanna, wooded lowlands, wet meadows, and tamarack swamp. We are leaders and teachers in sustainable farming methods.

We seasonally rotate the herds and flocks through open and wooded pastures as is best for the animals and the land.

Bison, beef, and lamb are grass fed only. Hogs and poultry are raised in pastures with supplementary local grains.

Our animals are humanely harvested and then processed in a state inspected facility. We pasture-harvest beef and bison to minimize stress.

Tamarack Lamb & Wool is a family farm specializing in producing outstanding quality grassfed lamb. Located in East Central Minnesota, the short, cool northern summers result in exceptionally high quality native clover pastures that are the mainstay of our lambing and lamb-rearing program.

While the Dorset is known as the "Angus" of sheep breeds in the US, the Ile de France is the premier market lamb sire in France known for muscling, with excellent tenderness and flavor. Lambs are butchered at a small, immaculate local shop where the lambs are taken care of promptly and with minimal stress.

Pasture-fed lamb is available seasonally in November and December. At this time, all orders must be picked up at the farm; no shipping is available.
