1915 Farm – Local Grassfed and Pasture Raised Meats Delivered to Your Doorstep from our Small Texas Farm

Grassfed and Finished Dry Aged Beef – no antibiotics or hormones, ever. Grazed on pasture and rotated often to encourage land regeneration. Aged 7–10 days for flavorful and tender beef.

Pasture Raised Heritage Pork – known for well-marbled meat, our hogs are fully raised on pasture, grassfed, and supplemented with non-GMO feed (soy- and corn-free), without the use of any growth promoting drugs. Our pork is incredibly flavorful and rich – nothing like “the other white meat” that’s so widely available.

Pasture Raised Chicken – we raise the chickens the way they were put on earth to be raised. They thrive in our lush pastures, chasing bugs, and eating grass in the sunshine – and their meat quality absolutely rewards us. Our feed is corn- and soy-free.

Our meat is freshly frozen and shipped via UPS directly to your door from our farm just outside of Victoria, Texas. Visit our website and create a custom order choosing your own cuts, or try our popular subscription boxes including a variety of meats as often as you choose, or reserve a half or whole cow today.

Our goal is to help you eat healthier by raising healthier meat. We raise our animals by honoring their natural environments – living their entire lives on pasture, regeneratively. Our health, land, and animal welfare are top priorities.

We take the hard road often – choosing quality over quantity, nutrition over cheapness, craft over assembly lines, to create nutritious, delicious meats you can feel good about. We even have our very own butcher shop under construction!

Visit our website to learn more about us and try our meat today! We post interesting and educational articles often, and delicious recipes weekly.

American Criollo Beef Alliance offers all-natural, free-range, grass fed, unbelievably tender Criollo (krēē-ō-yō) beef with a mouth-watering aroma and robust, full-bodied flavor that makes tenderizers, rubs, marinades and sauces unnecessary. It is a healthy source of high-quality protein and essential fatty acids. And finally, our beef is MORE TENDER and of HIGHER Quality than Kobe (Wagyu) beef and we have the documentation to prove it. Kobe Quality at an Affordable Price!

Our Criollo Cattle:

  • Are NEVER given antibiotics, growth hormones or grain products.
  • NEVER go to crowded, dirty feedlots.
  • Are DNA-tested prior to harvest to verify superior tenderness and quality.
  • Roam spacious pastures their entire lives, grazing on native and improved grasses.
  • Are ONLY fed high quality grasses, hays and alfalfa.

This natural, stress-free life without grains, growth hormones, or antibiotics lets you serve family and friends something delicious you can feel good about. Give it a try with our 10-pound "Just a Bite" package and taste the difference. Looking for a side of Criollo Beef? We have it! Check out all our Criollo Beef selections on our website.

Do you live in the Abilene area? Avoid shipping charges and pick up your Criollo Beef here at the ranch. During checkout, just mark the option to pick up your order at the Jandal Ranch. It's easy!

Criollo cattle were brought to the “New World” from southern Spain’s high desert plains on Columbus’s second voyage and are superbly adapted for the hostile environments of North America's southwest. Renowned for their hardiness, fertility, gentle nature and longevity, Criollo cattle are easy on the land, tending to improve a pasture, rather than destroy it as they naturally self-rotate through a pasture, utilizing every square foot of acreage, rather than concentrating on any one area.

Our cattle spend their entire lives roaming spacious pastures in West Texas, getting fat easily on natural grasses with no supplementation, only needing high quality hay in the winter months. Ranch visits are welcome (by appointment).

AGA logoAnn and Weldon Warren's Holy Cow Beef, pasture-raised and pasture-finished dry-aged beef. We operate an American Grassfed Association certified Angus operation that produces the highest quality “home-grown, pasture-raised and pasture-finished” beef available to your dinner table.

We are located in west Texas and serve north central Texas and west Texas. Our goal is to continue as a sustainable steward of God’s natural resources. We raise our animals for retail consumption by family, friends, and savvy consumers.

We harvest each animal when it develops adequate back fat and intramuscular marbling; this is normally achieved after 30 months of age. We are continually improving our genetics to produce bigger ribeyes, better marbling, and natural tasting beef. Our management style avoids grain, corn feeding, stress, and the feedlot environment. We employ rotational pasture grazing on native Texas and improved grasses, winter annuals, and select introduced grasses. Fortunately, our animals benefit from the distinctive flavoring provided by the high mineral content found in west Texas. We use NO growth hormones, antibiotics, herbicides, or pesticides. These animals are “finished” in the most natural and low stress conditions possible.

Our beef is Dry Aged (hanging in a freezer before processing) for 14 days to provide a hearty, brown-roasted beefy flavor, then vacuum packed for optimal storage. We “wet age” our premium steaks and encourage you to continue aging them in your own fridge if desired. Savor the healthier flavor and enjoy the wholesome and nutritional advantages of Holy Cow Beef’s naturally finished beef.

We sell by the cut with monthly deliveries to DFW, Midland and Amarillo, TX. We do require a 20-pound minimum order for home deliveries in the DFW area. We have partnered with a couple other ranches to offer pastured chicken and pork, grassfed artisan cheese and pastured chicken eggs that are supplemented with organic, non-soy feed.

Please feel free to contact us about shipping. We do ship some and will ship more later this year.

Bedias Creek Farms. Gourmet, grass-finished beef!

We produce gourmet, grass-finished beef on our small farm in Iola, Texas just east of College Station.

You could call us old fashioned because our cattle are raised the way they were meant to be. They are born on our farm, they graze the forage in our pastures, and they are never given grain, antibiotics, or hormones. Our pastures never receive chemical inputs and the inputs we do use are natural and based on prevention: ACV (apple cider vinegar), bentonite clay, boron, diatomaceous earth, organic iodine, well water, Redmond salt, garlic, oregano, and other trace minerals.

At time of harvest, they are taken directly to a Certified Humane processor and butchered to your instructions.

We deliver to Houston and surrounding areas.

Big Oaks Ranch runs a small herd (13) of Black Brangus and Black Angus mama cows. The bull is a registered Black Angus bull. Calves are born in the late Fall, weaned in the Summer and finished on grass for slaughter at 21–26 months of age.

Our target goal is to produce and market INTEGRITY BEEF, grass-fed for healthy, tender, tasty meat that is free of supplemental hormones, antibiotics, or any grain or grain products whatsoever. This requires a good team and close on site management of genetics, health, quality grasses and legumes. We are achieving this goal through the organic planning; genetic testing, selective breeding, and grass farming.

INTEGRITY BEEF means organically raised grass-fed beef that is consigned, slaughtered and custom packaged. The beef is slaughtered at Mineola Meat Packers, a USDA inspected facility. They deliver the halves to Texas Meat Packers of Henderson TX (formerly Gentry Farms Processing.) We counsel and discuss the cut order with the customer, so we are familiar with the customer’s family, eating and cooking habits. After 21+ days of aging, the owner-producer, Danny Burrows, observes, directs, and helps Texas Meat Packers cut and package each calf. The beef is vacuum packaged in clear packages and after 3 days the customer picks up their order of frozen beef.

The Big Oaks Ranch Goat herd has grown to over 75 head. They eat weeds, briars, and brush; they keep the trees pruned, and provide organic fertilizer everywhere they graze. Customers came to buy the goats for breeding and meat. This led to the target goal of Grass Fed Boer/Nubian Cross Goats. The cross breeding was accomplished through using registered Boer and Nubian bucks. They graze free-range and are ready for sale by private treaty purchase or consignment by the head or by the pound.

Big Oaks Ranch began raising chickens in the fall of 2001. Soon we were receiving calls requesting "yard eggs," laid by free-range/pastured hens that graze the pastures and fields freely. The eggs are of superior quality and free from added hormones, feed fillers, antibiotics, herbicides and pesticides. The hens roost and lay the eggs in mobile coops with laying boxes that are cleaned every day. The chicken litter is recycled through the ranch compost pile. The coops are moved every 2–3 days. This maintains a clean and healthy environment for the animals and is a natural and organic means of fertilization.

Buck Creek is a third-generation family farm near the small town of Paducah, Texas*. It is a place that means family, heritage, health, country living and taking care of the land we've been blessed with. Buck Creek was born out of the desire to establish sustainable grass farming practices on our farm. Our efforts were focused on producing better, more sustainable grass on our place and to provide clean meat that is not just healthy but delicious to eat and raised by Texans for Texans.

Our meats (Beef, Lamb, Chicken, Eggs and Wild Pork) are home-grown right here in Texas, raised on grass with no grain, no hormones, no antibiotics, and FINISHED on grass NOT grain. Our calves are selected for slaughter between 20 and 27 months. This more mature animal allows for the meat to marble "finish" unlike younger animals. Because of this, our calves will be larger in size and will marble well, giving you a better tasting, tender product; many of our calves will grade "choice" which is fantastic! Like in many “fine” restaurants, after slaughter our beef is aged between 14 and 21 days, depending on the weight of the animal, to create an even more tender product with an even more “beefy” flavor.

The chickens and eggs are raised at Buck Creek running free on our pastures. Hens utilize a mobile coop and chase bugs, seeds and the grass they wanna eat without restriction and they lay beautiful large brown eggs. The “meat” chickens are raised on grass and moved daily so that they always have access to fresh pasture. Any supplement feed is soy free. Our neighbors raise the lamb locally and around Texas and they are only ever fed grass and momma’s milk out on the free range…they are delicious. Our pork is the ultimate in sustainable free-range pastured pork as they are actually wild animals. They are free to eat the best grass everyday and because of that, their meat is scrumptious and super healthy for you. We capture them and only select the best female animals so the meat is mild with a slightly nutty flavor…beats the heck out of store bought pork!

Our meat is sold by the cut/pound, package, subscription and primal (quarter, half, whole)…check out our website for more info.

We are proud of our heritage and of our beef. We are certain that you'll be proud of your purchase and knowing that you are serving your family the absolute best!

Sincerely, Richard & Mona Gregory

Chisholm Trail Grass-fed Beef is a rancher-owned and -operated cooperative that raises longhorns locally on family ranches around Texas.

Chisholm Trail cattle graze in pastures and thrive without added hormones or unnecessary antibiotics, placing far less stress on the natural environment than grain-fed cattle raised on factory farms. Chisholm Trail partners are focused on providing delicious red meat for healthy eaters and educating people on the nutritional significance of 100-percent grass-fed beef. This results in healthier food with less impact on the environment. Not to mention the real taste of delicious grass-fed beef, just the way nature intended.

Our longhorn cattle produce lean cuts of meat. In fact, it’s leaner than regular beef, pork and even most cuts of chicken and turkey. It’s packed with more vitamin B6 than 6.5 cups of raw spinach, and contains high levels of iron, zinc, phosphorus and vitamin B12. Our natural beef is the new health food that never has added hormones or antibiotics.

The Cummins Family Farm produces pastured pork in the river bottoms along the Brazos in Parker County. The pigs are raised on grassy pastures and moved to fresh grazing regularly. No hormones or antibiotics are used.

Since pigs are not true grazers, their diet must be supplemented with grain, nuts, and other starchy crops. We grow these supplemental foods and give the pigs free access to them when the crops are ready. We have three young boys that are learning to love the land and care for it as they help us raise our animals.

Customers are welcome to visit our farm to see how our pigs have been raised and cared for.

Whole and half hogs are available. Whole pigs will yield between 200–225 pounds of meat. Half hogs will be just over one hundred pounds.

Dautobi Acres produces grass-fed lamb and dabbles in rare, heritage breed poultry conservation and prairie preservation. Our lambs are born and raised on our farm and our chickens and turkeys are hatched on our farm. We use low-stress management and gentle handling methods on all our livestock and poultry.

My husband and I have raised and sold hair sheep since 1996. My parents were dairy farmers and with the experience of large ruminants, we decided that small ruminants, with their more eco-friendly "hoof print" are the logical choice for our small farm/homestead. Our hair sheep harmonize beautifully with the small critters and birds that inhabit the remnant Blackland Prairie. From carbon sequestration to watershed preservation, we strive to keep this patch of Earth, temporarily bestowed to us, as natural as possible.

We are also conservation breeders of rare Redcap chickens and Recessive Lilac turkeys. Our flocks (sheep/poultry) graze on pastures free of pesticides and herbicides. Our production methods DO NOT include the use of antibiotics, hormones, pesticides, herbicides or feedlots.

The price of an entire lamb, custom cut and wrapped, is around $450.00; it varies somewhat with the fee charged by the processor. Lambs are delivered to a local processor where customers pickup their orders (and have access to more local meats and other products). We are located about an hour Northeast of the Dallas area and serve the Northeast Texas area.

We are members of the Texas Organic Farmers and Gardeners Association, Farm and Ranch Freedom Alliance, Native Prairie Association of Texas, and Katahdin Hair Sheep International. Our farm is veteran/female/Native American owned.

Visit our website for more information and thanks for supporting a small farmer – we know it is not convenient and appreciate the time you take to help make this world a better place.

Dr. Baker’s Grassfed Beef is raised and distributed at Baker Ranch in Belton, Texas. Belton is located in Central Texas about 60 miles northAWA logo of Austin in the Belton-Temple-Killeen Metroplex. A sustainable prairie was developed on 450 acres by reseeding native grasses, using nutrient-rich biologic amendments rather than commercial fertilizers and managed by rotational grazing. No GMO products, herbicides or pesticides are used—ever. Certified Black Angus cattle now peacefully graze on a variety of grasses and legumes and are entirely raised and finished on prairie grasses. No hormones or antibiotics or grain finishing is used—ever. Our cattle never experience stockyards or inhumane management.

The goals of Baker Ranch include good land stewardship, environmental protection and animal husbandry. These goals work together and result in improved soil, better grasses, healthier cattle and healthy quality meat loaded with Omega-3 fatty acids, CLA, and anti-oxidants. The end result is healthy, tasty, tender beef.

Baker Ranch is a member of Animal Welfare Approved and Go Texan. An AWA certified butcher minimizes stress on the cattle and uses minimal processing to provide lean meat. To minimize costs, Dr. Baker’s Grassfed Beef is not sold in stores or markets but is distributed locally within a 40-mile radius of the Ranch. Distribution by mail is not available. A variety of preferred cuts or scheduled packages of quarter or half cows can be arranged for convenient delivery. Orders are best conducted by email or telephone to meet individual preferences.

Fredericksburg Grassfed Beef Ranch, located in the beautiful Texas Hill Country near Fredericksburg, is family owned and operated.

Our cattle are primarily Hereford and Angus cross. We strive to produce a black calf. We have learned that an important factor in producing tender meat is having gentle, docile cows. As we select replacement heifers, disposition is as important as confirmation. Working with gentle stock is safer for the livestock and easier for us.

We operate on organic principles, but have not yet achieved organic certification. Our pastures have not seen herbicides or fertilizers for over 20 years. Herd health is maintained by frequent pasture rotation. We do not use any antibiotics or hormones. We do use preventative vaccines for our calves at 30 to 60 days of age.

This herd has been wholly owned by our family. Many of the cows have lineage back to the first cows brought to the ranch by our parents over 50 years ago, and the lineage actually begins with our grandfather's herd, which was established in the early 1900s. We know where these cows have been all their lives—they are Texan born and raised.

Calves are available for slaughter beginning in May. This is dependent upon the weather. We do not supplement our slaughters with grain; they are raised and finished in the same native pastures in which they were born. This means that the animals feed on a broad variety of plants, which in turn produces a healthier animal and a more flavorful meat. In 2004 we began offering 24-month-old calves for slaughter. These animals have a higher degree of marbling than calves in the 14 to 18 month old range.

We have USDA labeling and are able to offer packages with assorted cuts of meat.

Due to the continuing drought in Texas we have a limited quantity of meat available and sell by appointment only, and at Peach Basket Natural Foods, 334 W Main Street, Fredericksburg, TX 78624, (830) 997-4533.

G Farms is the original G Farms Cowpooling. We put families together to purchase a live animal, handling all of the arrangements for you behind the scenes. You don't have to find other parties to share a beef with, then try to collect money from them. Our flat rate includes delivering cattle to the processor, the cost of processing, and your portion of the cow: 1/8, 1/4. or 1/2. Our carcasses hang up around 600–650 pounds and we hang our beef for 21 days.

This is not a hobby farm, but 20+ years of serving our customers. All our cattle are antibiotic free, growth hormone free, and free of any chemical agents and residue.We do not feed our cattle any grain, soy, corn silage, or concentrate. They are processed under USDA inspection with an inspector onsite. We have a standing order weekly with our processor to deliver our cattle and pick up and deliver our beef.

We also custom bale and sell hay. We have a bee operation, honey when available, and the public can come and cut flowers during the blooming season with over 100,000 stems blooming daily.

Glory Farms converted to the “simple” way of raising cattle and selling beef in the late 1990’s. We started “finishing” our animals on grass only and not subjecting them to man made chemicals by way of their feed.

We let our pastures lay dormant for three years without any manmade fertilizers of insecticides added. In 2002, we moved locations, however, we continued the same philosophy. Our new pastures are ready and we are back in the grass finished business.

We will continue to furnish angus/angus cross steers, but we have changed direction a little. We are seeing the importance of smaller serving sizes and the need to produce smaller “finished” animals. We have entered into the mini Hereford business. These are smaller animals that reflect the size of animals my dad and grandfather raised.

Our philosophy can be summed up very easily. We believe the old ways are better. Animals need to be raised naturally; they need to go a minimum of 6 months without medication before being sold for beef; they need to be “finished”; they need to have clean water and lots of grass; and they need to reflect and participate in the slow pace simple life we enjoy here at Glory Farms.

HooFin Wings Ranch is located in the Texas panhandle near Wichita Falls on the Red River. We farm wheat and raise purebred Murray Grey cattle. Murray Grey's are a breed that originated in Australia and are known for their high meat to bone ratio. This means more of the animal you buy is meat and not bone. Murray Grey's are a medium-framed breed cow that finishes well on grass. They don't need copious amounts of grain to finish such as the larger feed lot cows. Our cattle are never put into feed lots to finish them. They stay on natural pasture grasses so you get NATURALLY BETTER BEEF.

Our beef animals have NO growth hormones or antibiotics. They are all pasture raised on native and winter grasses and are usually harvested in the winter/spring of the year. Our rotational grazing program assures they are always getting fresh tender grasses. Any of our beef animals that may need doctoring are taken out of our beef program and sold in the sale barn or used in our herd. Only hormone and antibiotic-free animals make it into our beef program. You won't be eating these chemicals if you buy our animals.

We sell by the quarter, half, and whole animal. Your beef is vacuum packaged and ready for your freezer. If you are interested in purchasing purebred registered Murray Grey's, we have those also.

jjjmgrassfedbeef.com, located near Truman Lake in West Central Missouri, is owned and operated by 3rd and 4th generation family farmers. After the Civil War, both Union and Confederate soldiers settled the countryside and area became known as "Golden Valley." Soft rolling hills and spring-fed creeks blended into large parcels of un-treed, open farmland in the Grand River Basin. John Jurgensmeyer and his fraternal twin Ben purchased their property near Montrose, MO in 1919. Today John's grandchildren and great-grandchildren operate the family farm that has been Certified Organic since 1997.

We primarily raise Angus and Hereford for their superior marbling characteristics. Our grass fed natural beef cattle forage on continually rotated fresh pastures, and never receive synthetic growth hormones. Our protocol is to never use any antibiotics unless absolutely necessary for the animal's health and welfare. Our pastures are never treated with artificial fertilizers, herbicides or pesticides. We cut and bale our own red clover, lespedeza, fescue and orchard grass hay into those big round bales we roll out in winter.

We have animals available year round and offer either Half or Whole Beef. Our beef is processed in a small, family-owned USDA inspected facility and is dry-aged for a minimum of 14–21 days. It is then cut into ground beef, steaks, roasts, brisket, and soup bones for those who want a healthy cut of beef on hand when they need it.

We are committed to providing 100% pure grass fed beef that our customers can feel good about feeding to their families. We like to think of our customers as friends and partners, and we want you to feel comfortable about buying your meat from someone you know and trust.

The Lazy A Ranch, certified by the American Grassfed Association and Animal Welfare Approved, is a member of the British White Cattle Association of America, the American Wagyu Association, and the Texas Wagyu Association. Our ranch is certified, which means that our world class standards have been verified by an independent auditor.

One of our herds is the historic British White breed, once reserved for the English royalty and aristocracy, and enclosed in parks. This herd is headed by B&B Ulysses, an American Fullblood bull. We are currently producing beef from this herd, and The Lazy A Ranch website includes a history of this breed.

Another herd is of the world renowned Japanese Red Wagyu breed, headed by JC Red Star 50, a 99.4% purebred bull. American Kobe Beef will be sold beginning in 2016 from this herd.

The ranch follows organic pasture care with compost teas and liquid organic fertilizer from Sustainable Growth Texas, and follows Holistic Management International principles, including rotational grazing. We do not use pesticides, herbicides, routine antibiotics or growth hormones.

Our animals are tame, moved gently, and live on grassy pasture their entire lives. Most were born on the ranch. In addition to pasture grass our cows eat baled hay, alfalfa, cottonseed meal, and molasses. They are given a free-choice supplement with vitamins, minerals, kelp, and diatomaceous earth. They also get a sea salt block with minerals. We do not use pesticides, herbicides, routine antibiotics, or growth hormones.

The finishing process is begun at the ranch for 60–90 days with unlimited supplementary rations on pasture. Typically, our beef will be 28–30 months old and about 1200 pounds for a heavier, more marbled and flavorful beef according to the protocol of Artisan French labeled beef. They will be individually selected as they reach full growth and desired heaviness and processed by LaGrange Smokehouse, which is also Animal Welfare Approved. Beef will be dry aged for 21 days and shrink wrapped for your freezer.

The Lazy A Ranch is located about one hour from Houston between Bellville and Hempstead in Austin county. We also have a location in Cat Spring. Beef may be picked up at the ranch, in the Texas Medical Center Houston, or may be shipped frozen overnight in Texas. Our price for fall of 2013 is $4 per pound, hanging weight.

Our cattle are totally grass-fed and grass-finished, being maintained with no vaccines, no hormones, no antibodies, no GMOs, no soy, no animal by-products, no commercial wormers and absolutely no grains.

The results are healthy, tender, flavorful grass-fed beef for family and customers.

Lindley Organic Farm won the Tender Beef Contest at the NADA Conference (now Red Devon USA) in 2009. The steak we entered registered a 2.43 on the Warner Bratzler Shear Force test.

Lovejoy Farm, Clifton, Texas.

Question: Who uses sprouted wheat grass for its outstanding nutritional benefits?

Answer: Our grass finished beef do!

Lovejoy Farm is located in Bosque County near Lake Whitney in central Texas. We raise and direct-market clean pasture finished beef.

Our pastures have been free of toxic sprays and chemical fertilizers for over 12 years. We manage our pastures using management intensive grazing practices. With rare exceptions, our cattle are moved to fresh grass and a new paddock every day.

Grass finished beef requires a well-balanced diet (energy vs. protein) during the finishing phase to ensure well-marbled, tender meat. To this end we use sprouted wheat grass as a diet balancer and supplement to their normal pasture grazing. During the final 90-day finishing, each animal received 15 to 20 pounds of fresh wheat grass daily.

Animal nutrition is supported with Redmond natural minerals. Parasite control is accomplished using diatomaceous earth in the minerals as well as apple cider vinegar in the drinking water. Antibiotics or hormones are never used.

Contact us for processing options and current pricing information.

Unsolicited customer comments and repeat orders tell us we are doing things right. We think you will agree!

Remember, if it is in their feed—it is in your food!

Nors Four Star Farms is a family farm, owned and operated by Kevin & Karleen Nors. It is located just outside of Abbott, TX. We currently raise Grass-Fed Beef and Grass-Fed Lamb. We take great pride in humanely raising our animals, keeping them happy and healthy, free of any antibiotics, growth hormones, or exposure to pesticides.

We practice sustainable livestock and pasture management. Red Angus / Red Devon cattle and Katahdin / Dorper sheep have been selected because they work well together in a natural grazing system. With rotational grazing and multi-species on our farm, we have eliminated the need for herbicides and commercial parasite control. Native and improved varieties of grass and clover are established to extend the grazing seasons, and give our animals balanced nutrition. Sea minerals are offered to our animals year round. Quality hay is fed when supplementation is necessary.

Our meats are available for pickup from the farm by appointment, or call us for delivery options.

We appreciate your support of our efforts to contribute to healthier lifestyles, and environmentally friendly and sustainable farming practices!

Rockin L Lowlines. When I was diagnosed with CIDP and was not able to work much we looked for an alternative to our Dorper sheep. We found that for small acreages the Lowline beef cattle are perfect.

Lowlines require much less work than the sheep and are very easy to manage. They are more like pets than cattle, and kids love them. They don't require a lot of feed and they return much higher profits than full size cattle or sheep. They are also more ecologically friendly because they are easier on the pastures than full size cattle. Lowlines finish well on grass and they are great for natural, health conscious programs. We sell our Lowline cross steers for meat.

Do you have a small acreage? Lowlines qualify you for an agricultural tax exemption if you only have 3 or 4 acres. This alone will save you enough to pay for them. Along with feed efficiency and ease of handling you get the advantages of premium prices. At the 2006 national lowline sale 54 head, (40 fullbloods and 14 percentage females and 3 percentage bulls) averaged over $5500 per head! Lowlines are a joy to work with and very rewarding financially, and the fact that they are the best beef on the market helps.

Welcome to The Rowdy Roost, your source for responsibly raised pastured meats and farm goods. We offer pork, turkey, chicken, duck, goose, and quail, as well as chicken and duck eggs.

Founded while under COVID lockdown as an urban backyard experiment with a few chickens, we've since moved with our five children far into the idyllic countryside of Guadalupe County onto 20 beautiful acres. Here our layers are raised as completely free range, with unlimited access to forage. Our meat birds are pastured in tractors we move frequently. Our hogs are raised on pasture and rotated as needed to support their growth.

In 2020, when COVID began, we saw people begin to awaken to the fact that there is great value in knowing your local farmer. Since then, the uncertainty of our world has compounded, and with it our commitment to providing families a means of securing their food supply with products that are not only delicious, but ethical in their production.

RR Wilderness Ranch is a family-owned and operated ranch in Bonham, TX, approximately one hour northeast of Plano. We raise Black Angus Beef, Pastured Chickens, Pastured Lamb and Free-Range Eggs. We do things the Joel Salatin way: Humane, Sustainable, Natural.

We retail online for delivery or pickup at the Ranch. We sell our products by the piece or in bulk when available.

Our cattle and sheep live out in the fields on hundreds of acres that are never treated with herbicides or pesticides. Our cattle are Grass Fed and Grass Finished. The cattle never get grain, hormones, or antibiotics. They never go to a feedlot. They live a great free life! We have only the best genetics. You can taste the difference.

Our meat chickens are Cornish Cross. They live in movable, floorless shelters. They are moved to fresh pasture daily and are fed certified organic grains. They also eat bugs, seeds, and grasses as they go, and as a bonus for us, they fertilize the field at the same time. We raise them from April–October. We also offer Turkeys for sale around Thanksgiving.

Our laying hens are fed Non-GMO, Non-Soy food and live out in the sunshine of my garden. We have a few varieties of laying hens producing brown, speckled, green, and white eggs with the most wonderful flavor.

We offer delivery to areas within 2 hours of our ranch, or you can pick up your order. Online ordering is available on our website. Ranch tours available by appointment only.

All our products are "Biblically Kosher," which means we only raise animals that the Bible says can be eaten and they are humanely treated and processed in a way to remove the most blood possible from the animal.

Shady Grove Ranch produces the best quality pasture-raised meats and eggs you can find in the East Texas and Shreveport area. Our products include 100% grass-fed beef, soy-free, non-GMO pasture-raised pork, and truly pastured soy-free poultry, including whole chickens, Thanksgiving turkeys, and fresh eggs.

We use old-fashioned breeds that are hardy and produce well on a natural diet. We focus on utilizing rotational management, “buffet-style” mineral supplementation, total avoidance of chemicals and drugs, and fully finishing our animals on appropriate diets. This means that cows only eat grass, and pigs, chickens, and turkeys forage freely and are supplemented with non-genetically-modified, non-soy grains. Our animals never remain on a fixed patch of ground indefinitely—they are moved regularly, according to season and herd size, to ensure good nutrition and avoidance of disease and parasites.

We only process animals that are nice and fat to ensure amazing flavor, excellent tenderness, and plenty of marbling. Our meat is not extremely lean like some grass-based producers. We believe that most of the goodness about grass-fed beef and pastured pork and chicken is in the fat, so we ask our butcher not to trim, and we select animals for slaughter that are in good body condition—not too fat, not too slim. Animal protein with a moderate amount of fat is tastier, more filling, and easier to digest than leaner meat. Our animals are bred for efficient pasture-fattening and they eat diets appropriate to their species The fat on our animals is buttery, flavorful, and rich. It is nothing like greasy, filmy corn-fed beef fat! And you have never tried a real pork chop until you have one from our Large Black pigs. Caution: After tasting Shady Grove Ranch products, you may never be able to eat store-bought meat again!

We sell by-the-cut and in bulk. We welcome visitors to our operation so that you can learn where your food comes from and know how it is really produced. We offer farm tours and encourage you to sign up for our semi-monthly newsletter to receive information (but never spam!) about our specials, practices, events, and more.

Watterson Ranch raises, processes and sells USDA inspected, dry aged beef in quarter, half and whole quantities within Central Texas.

Natural. Local. Grass fed. Sustainable. These are principles that Watterson Ranch has embodied since the 50s. The 1850s.

As the sixth generation to grow up on this land raising cattle, we grew up eating beef we had raised, a luxury then available only to family. Things are done right when you know your family will put it on their plates.

We produce food that is honest-no shortcuts, fillers or additives. We never use hormones or antibiotics. Our cattle freely roam and graze on what God has provided. Fresh grass in the summer, hay from our own pastures in the winter, free choice natural minerals and plenty of fresh, clean water. Our cattle are never penned up in a feedlot or fed grain, but we believe that quality matters-in the happiness of our animals, in our impact to the land and the world, and in the food that you consume. It matters.

USDA inspected, great tasting certified grass fed beef from a local, sustainable and proud Texas ranch, previously available only to our kin. Welcome to the family.
