The following farms and ranches have certified that they meet Eatwild's criteria for producing grassfed meat, eggs and dairy products. Contact them directly for additional information or to buy their products:

A Land of Grass raises natural grass-fed beef and lamb because it is good for the land and good for you. We realize everything comes from the sun. We harvest grass, the sun's bounty, in the form of beef and lamb. Low fat, grassfed meat tastes better, too. You can almost taste the sunshine.

We work diligently to provide a healthy product and sustain our land holistically. Our cows and ewes calve and lamb during April and May, so the calves and lambs get to start on fresh spring grass. We do not use growth hormones. We rarely use antibiotics because we keep our livestock healthy (knock on wood!) with proper nutrition and low stress. We will use an antibiotic to save a life, but then will not keep it in our beef or lamb program. You will not consume antibiotics from our meat.

Research shows that grassfed beef contains fat that is actually good for you. Grassfed beef and lamb has more Omega-3 fatty acids, which reduce the risk of heart disease. Grassfed also contains more beta-carotene and up to five times as much CLA.

You can order quarters, halves, or wholes of beef between June and January. We have lambs available, too; just call. We will deliver within 100 miles of Conrad.

Come visit us anytime.

The B Bar Ranch raises organic, grass-fed, and grass-finished beef in south central Montana. We sell almost every cut as well as curated packages on our webstore.

Under organic management for over 25 years, we are committed to using livestock management and grazing practices to create greater biodiversity, build soil health, and provide the best animal welfare possible. We strive to improve the natural resources we care for to raise great tasting, healthy beef, and leave a full range of opportunities on a healthy landscape for those who follow us. We believe everyone should be able to feel good about the steak on their plate, the burger in their bun, or the hot dog they feed their kids.

At the B Bar, our mindset is long-term. Whether it’s bringing a heritage cattle breed, like our conservation herd of White Park Cattle, back from the brink of extinction or building up the soil health of our rangelands over a decade, we are dedicated to creating a better future. In addition, we know knowledge is power and do our part to share what we’ve learned with others interested in alternatives to the conventional agriculture paradigm. We hold educational events and ranch tours and do our best to be a positive force in the communities we serve.

In the late 1980s, we did considerable research to determine which ranch practices and management philosophies best reflect our beliefs and values. We quickly settled on organic management and have been caring for our ranches this way ever since. We embrace low-stress livestock handling, conserving open space and wildlife habitat, and using ecologically responsible practices geared to our landscape. Planned, adaptive grazing methods allow us to use our cattle as tools to enhance rangeland and soil health, and we regularly apply organic soil amendments like compost tea to our pastures to improve soil health.

Our overall goal is to support a healthy, thriving ecosystem which allows our livestock, wildlife, and landscape to flourish to their fullest potential.

Crary Beef holistically raises all-natural, grassfed and finished beef.

These black angus cattle are born and raised on our fourth-generation ranch. From birth to harvest, they are happily consuming omega-3 rich native grasses and forages along Montana's Rocky Mountain Front. They share pastures with a variety of wildlife including grizzly bears, elk, deer, and sandhill cranes.

Our cattle are never confined and are raised with no hormones, no antibiotics, no grain, and no animal by-products. They are always handled in a low-stress manner. We are passionate about producing a nutritious and delicious product while improving and maintaining native grasslands and riparian areas.

Our all-natural, grassfed and finished beef is an average age of 2 years at harvest. It is rich in omega 3 fatty acids (the good fat!), conjugated linoleic acid, vitamin E, and beta-carotene. To enhance the flavor and tenderness, we age the beef with a local processor for 14–21 days.

Our beef can be purchased by the whole, half, or quarter and customized to your personal satisfaction. These are seasonally available late June to October to capture the greatest nutritional benefits of the lush grasses.

Individual cuts are available year-round and can be shipped. The individual cuts are from animals harvested in the fall and stored frozen in our Meat Depot for sale throughout the winter.

Feiring's Grassfed Beef is located in the rolling plains of western North Dakota, on the Montana border. We have been raising registered Angus cattle since 1982 and grassfed beef since 2014. We started raising grassfed beef after listening to Dr. Don Huber speak at the Grassfed Exchange in Bismarck, ND. At that point, we decided that if we don’t have our health, then neither will our soil or livestock.

Our cattle are raised in a holistic manner without antibiotics, GMOs, growth hormones, commercial fertilizers or pesticides. They are 100% grassfed and grass finished. We practice low-stress livestock handling to assure our cattle are raised in a stress-free environment. Our ranch has been practicing holistic resource management since 2012. The main motto on our ranch is "If you take care of the soil, it will take care of you!" We utilize conventional and high-density rotational grazing to assure the cattle are on the highest plain of nutrition.

Our beef is processed at a USDA federally inspected facility and sold under a ND retail meat license, which allows us to sell by the retail cut and in bulk (quarters, halves and wholes). We sell our products at the ranch and local farmers markets in the area. We also deliver to Dickinson, Williston, Watford City, Bismarck, Bowman and the surrounding areas.

You can find updates on product availability on our website at www.feiringsgrassfedbeef.com or on our Facebook page at Feiring’s Grassfed Beef.

At Flocking Good Farms, we do things differently. We are passionate about sustainable farming and providing the highest quality poultry products. Starting with a small flock of turkeys, laying hens, and broilers, we are expanding to provide more high-quality, pasture-raised and safe-ranged poultry in Montana.

Located in the heart of Northcentral Montana, our vision grew from a personal need for an alternative to store-bought products that often lack transparency regarding their age and quality. Now, we aim to offer the same high standards and transparency to our customers.

As a family-owned farm, our principles are rooted in transparency, integrity, and a commitment to the well-being of our customers and our land. We provide our poultry with a nutritious, soy-free, GMO-free diet and spacious, clean pastures to thrive. Our safe-range practices ensure that our flock can roam freely and engage in natural behaviors, which we believe enhances the quality and taste of our poultry.

We believe in sharing what we have learned and produced with others who value quality and sustainability. We deliver locally in Northcentral Montana and are expanding to include farmers' markets and retail locations across the state. Visit our website at flockinggoodfarms.com for updates on products and where to find us or to reach out for more information.

At Lair Ranch, Doug and Mary Lair and Family raise grass-finished beef and lamb in the beautiful and fertile Yellowstone River Valley just downstream from Big Timber, Montana.

We are non-certified organic, using the regenerative practices of our ancestors for the past many years—no pesticides or herbicides on our pastures, no hormones, antibiotics, or grain supplements in our grass-finished market beef and lamb, and gentle and humane handling in a rotational grazing system that promotes overall animal, soil, and human health. We raise and feed our own hay for winter feed.

Our cows are Red Devon (a Heritage Breed), Red Angus and Devon/Angus crosses. The English breeds finish well on grass. We calve on pastures in May and June. It takes around 20–26 months to finish a steer on grass in this part of the Country, slower than a feed lot, but much healthier and more flavorful meat with higher levels of Omega 3 fatty acids and CLA (the good stuff). We are currently sold out of beef and are taking reservations for our next group of steers that finish in early July. These will be ready to deliver in late July and early August 2024, with more finishing in the Fall if one prefers to take delivery later in the year.

Our sheep are South African Meat Merinos (SAMMs) which are known for their outstanding carcass traits and flavor (along with very good wool). They also take a little longer to finish than some sheep breeds, but once again, are well worth the wait. We are currently sold out of lamb and are taking reservations for purchase and delivery in late 2024 and into the first quarter of 2025.

The integrity of our business is entirely dependent upon the integrity of our processor, and we have a great one. Try our grass-finished products and we think you will agree. Please note, we also have beef and lamb organs, fat and broth bones for sale.

We sell beef by the whole, half and quarter; lamb by the whole and half. Please contact Doug Lair, 406-930-2233, lairs@mtintouch.net. We offer free delivery within 100 miles of Big Timber and our processor offers shipping services.

Visitors always welcome! Please call in advance as we’re out pushing water (irrigating), pulling weeds, moving livestock, or fixing something most of the time.

North Bridger Bison is a family-run, family-owned bison ranch located in the Shields Valley of Montana. We focus on producing the healthiest, most regenerative, most delicious bison meat you can buy.

Our bison spend 365 days a year outside on diverse grasslands. And when it comes time to harvesting an animal, we field-harvest each bison on the ranch—as opposed to putting them on a truck and hauling them to a feedlot or a slaughterhouse somewhere.

Field-harvesting is unique, and it's the most ethical and humane practice—with no stress for the animal and no stress in the meat, which leads to unbelievably healthy and delicious bison meat.

We ship throughout the United States via UPS, and we would be more than happy to answer any questions you have.

We are also strongly committed to conservation, and our ranch is home to a wide variety of wildlife.

To learn more, please visit www.northbridgerbison.com -- or contact Matt Skoglund at (406) 223-1950 or info@northbridgerbison.com.

Omega Beef raises grass-finished Wagyu beef. Wagyu is a breed of cattle originating in Japan that produces the legendary “Kobe” beef delicacy, famous for its flavor and tenderness. The Wagyu breed produces a higher percentage of beneficial omega oils than any other breed of cattle known in the world.

Our Wagyu cattle are raised in the hills of southeast Montana where we ranch with the longstanding practices of caring for the land and water resources. Our cattle are fed grass and water – no growth hormones – no antibiotics.

Our aim is to provide healthy, grassfed and grass-finished beef that is tender, delicious and affordable. You can buy a half or whole beef directly from us. Our grass-finished Wagyu is dry-aged, cut and packaged to your specifications by our USDA butcher. We pay basic butchering costs and we deliver regionally. We have beef available two times a year in July and December. Call to reserve a half or whole beef.

Roaming Bison Ranch is here to offer the most convenient way to get grass-fed, grass-finished bison and beef. We also have pastured Mangalitsa pork available intermittently.

What we offer: We have an assortment of bundles available on our website for our customers to choose from. Pick the bundle that works best for you, order online, and we can ship it to your doorstep (for free!). We ship anywhere in MT, ID, WA, OR, UT, WY, ND, and CO, with other states available upon request.

If you are close by and want to make a day of it, we love having people come to the ranch to see our operation when picking up their order. You can see the bison, the pigs, the friendly cows, and a couple fuzzy miniature donkeys.

Our products are individually vacuum sealed. Only want one steak? No problem! Animals are processed at a local USDA facility, and dry age 14 days before packaging.

About the ranch: We are a built-from-the-ground-up, first generation ranch. We fully embrace sustainable and regenerative agriculture practices. We aren’t battling tradition to implement new ideas as we find them, and the quality of our products is a great example of how effective newer practices can be.

Roaming Bison Ranch is in St. Ignatius, MT. All our animals are slow grown and harvested when they are truly “finished.” Our grass-finished beef (and even bison) have wonderful marbling. Intramuscular fat is deposited in grass finished animals after most of the animals’ bone growth is completed, so age 24–30 months is an ideal time to harvest. No sub-therapeutic antibiotics, no grain, nothing unnatural.

Animal wellbeing and product quality are our main priorities. Everything goes hand-in-hand, and having healthy soil means healthy pasture, which means healthy, happy, delicious animals.

Thirteen Mile Farm has been producing grassfed lamb for over 30 years, certified organic since 1999. We raise dual purpose animals, celebrating both the tender meat and diversity of fiber types that can grow on grass. In early 2018 we sold our wool mill of 14 years to one of the mill employees, allowing us to return our primary focus to the land and animals. Tender, mild, medium-framed animals MT_certified_organic_logothat thrive on grass, grown on our calcium-rich Intermountain Valley soils, remain our priority.

Our pasture rotation system primary includes a sheep grazing/hay harvest rotation, with a few acres of vegetable/cover-cropping rotation. Neighbors’ cattle-grazing is integrated into the system when conditions permit. We have sought this diversity for the benefit of the sheep, the people, the land, and the lamb. Consideration of wildlife diversity is a guide as well; we do not kill native carnivores, and the pastures often host as many wild ungulates (year-round whitetail deer and seasonally, elk) as domestic livestock.

Protection of multiple waterways on the ranch through fencing and/or other management strategies is paramount.

At Uncommon Beef we sell grass-fed and finished, pasture-raised delicious beef and lamb that will satisfy your taste buds and your conscience.

We're a small family operation. We work in-sync with nature because a healthy ecosystem is good for the soil, plants, animals, and people fed by it.

Our practices: We honor the five principles of soil health with practices such as seeding perennial cover plants to increase biodiversity. The herd and flock are rotated frequently based on the growing season and needed recovery periods for the pastures. We plan our grazing to ensure adequate soil cover for temperature regulation and increased water-holding capacity. Our animals are offered salt and kelp which is a balanced source of minerals. In the winter, they receive supplemental grass hay.

Our products: We sell primarily by the share (quarter, half, or whole). Lamb is available in the fall. Our flock is a Katahdin hair sheep breed, and our cattle herd is a heritage Galloway breed. They're specifically selected for their meat quality and performance on grass alone.

We sell locally, we do not ship. We deliver within 100 miles of Big Timber, MT.

We use a USDA inspected local processor.
