Blue Rooster Farm has found that healthy soils are the foundation for sustainable agricultural production of any kind. We are farming two small farms using beef cows and ewes as our primary soil building partners.
The lambs are fed grass exclusively. We use no antibiotics, growth hormones, chemical wormers, pesticides, herbicides, or commercial fertilizers. Our beef cattle are Angus/Maine-Anjou crosses. Grass lean beef is sold from 700–900 pound animals. Grass fat beef is from more mature animals, retained usually to 24 months. All butchering is done when the animals are coming off grass, either during the spring or fall flushes.
We also have free-range laying hens. We raise our hens from our own broodstock and select for foraging ability, activeness, and hardiness, as well as quality egg production. Broilers and turkeys are free range until 2–3 weeks before slaughter when they are confined to moveable coops to “tenderize” them. The birds still receive fresh pasture daily. Honey is available as well.
Lamb is available in limited quantity from September to December. Beef is available in the fall. Free range eggs, chickens, and turkeys are available by order. Honey is sold year-round in quantities ranging from 1 pound jars to 5 gallon containers.

Buck Run Farm is located in the hills of Chester County, 6 miles south of Coatesville. We are a grass and beef farm. We sell cattle for freezer beef and our premium retail product, Dr. Elkins’ Angusburger, which is ground beef frozen in one-pound Cryovac packages. All cuts except the loin and rib go into this premium product. Retail price is $4.50/pound, f.o.b. the farm.
Angusburger is made from Angus steers raised from birth on our own pastures. The animals are not treated with hormones or antibiotics. We had our beef tested in Dr. Dhiman’s lab at Utah State. It is consistently high in Omega-3 fatty acids and CLA. Manuscript available in Microsoft Word by e-mail.
Buckeye Highlands, owned by Max and Mary VanBuren, produces 100% grass-fed beef.
Our meadows have been certified organic since 2001, and the vast majority of our meat is certified organic. All of our cattle utilized for meat production are born and raised on our farm where we live.
Our herd of Scottish Highland cows (a breed noted for tender, lean meat) is located in Columbiana County, Ohio. We are about 7 miles from the Pennsylvania border, and about 35 miles west of the Pittsburgh airport. We can ship Next Day UPS to anywhere in the US. Please see our website for more details.
Bull & the Vineyard sells grass fed freezer beef. Our cows are fed an exclusive, pasture based diet of timothy grass, clover, trefoil, ryegrass and oat grass. I became very interested in grass fed beef after reading The Maker’s Diet, and following the links to Eatwild.com. Our cow breeds consist of Salers, Salers/Angus crosses, and Herefords. The Salers have proven to be the best grazers on our farm which is near Lake Erie, one mile from Conneaut, Ohio.
We have adjusted our prices for 2006 to reflect our product demand. Basically, the price of our ground beef went up and the steaks stayed the same.
Ground Beef $3.39/lb.
NY Strip $8.79/lb.
Now that we are butchering our cows by 20 months, the quarters are smaller, about 75 pounds. A typical quarter has 60 pounds of ground beef, 2 pounds of filet mignon, 7 pounds of Ribeye and 6 pounds of New York Strip. Keep in mind that the ground beef has all the Sirloin steaks and round steaks as well as chuck roasts included in it. Customers purchasing at least a quarter receive a ten percent discount. With the discount included, a quarter, cut up as described above, costs $307. This price includes all butchering costs and vacuum packaging.
Canyon Livestock Company raises beef cattle under two different systems. Animals that end the summer weighing 700 pounds or more are butchered early in the fall, making grass their sole source of nourishment. Those that weigh less than 700 pounds are over-wintered on a diet of hay and some grain. In early spring, they are returned to the pasture to be finished on grass. (All animals are butchered before their second spring.)
The beef is available in quantity only.
Canyon Livestock Company, R.D. #6, Box 205, Wellsboro PA 16901.

Turkeys and chickens sold as broilers are raised on free-range pasture. Hens producing eggs are on free-range pasture or in a large portable pen. In addition to pasture, all poultry eat 100% certified organic whole and ground grains. They also eat a lot of leftover organic vegetables! No antibiotics, parasite medications or hormones are used.

Heather Ridge Creamery is located in beautiful Tioga County near the Pennsylvania Grand Canyon. Our small family farm makes cheese from the milk of our prize winning Holstein and Jersey cows.
As today’s farms become larger commercial operations, we looked for a way to keep a small farm where our animals could receive the best of care, and we could have the satisfaction of bringing a quality dairy product direct from our family to yours. Our Canyon Country Cheeses are made here from start to finish! Clean, comfortable cows are fed a diet of the best hay and grain Jim can find. They graze the quiet pastures on our farm and lounge under the fans if they get too hot. What a life!
We believe the final product is only as good as what goes into it. Our raw milk cheese is made from only high quality milk, salt, cultures and enzymes. Its taste will reflect the quality and care that goes into all we do. No factories here!

We use mineral-rich, balanced soils, as well as organic and ecologically sound farming practices to produce healthy organic foods and meats.

Pastured chickens and rabbit are available from June through November. Lambs and goats are available from August through October. Pork is sold from August through November. Eggs are available from March through December.
You will find the products at the farm, at a farmers’ market in Deposit, NY and at some of our craft shows in the fall, most of which are in New York state. (Note: The farm also sells fiber, yarns, and hand-knitted and felted garments from their Angora rabbits and sheep.)

Wallace Homestead Farm, owned and operated by John and Janie Wallace, offers the health conscious consumer a source for naturally raised beef that can be custom ordered.
Our beef herd consists of Herefords, Hereford/Angus, and Holstein steers. We also raise dairy Holstein heifers. They are humanely treated, well cared for, and free to roam pastures, drink from natural springs, and thrive in a natural and calm environment. Our cattle are not penned up or force-fattened on grain, and are given no antibiotics or hormones.
We raise our beef cattle under two systems. Cattle ending the summer weighing 1,000 pounds or more are butchered in the fall, making grass their sole source of nourishment. Those weighing less than 1,000 pounds are wintered over on a diet of our own hay and a small grain supplement of corn and oats naturally grown on our farm. In early spring they are returned to the pasture to be finished on grass.
Customers may order half or quarter portions of our naturally raised beef custom cut and processed at our dedicated USDA Natural Beef processing plant. Some folks prefer to select a whole animal for their own custom processing.
Walnut Creek Farm is a small grass-based farm located in scenic Lancaster County PA along the Susquehanna River. We specialize in grass fed lamb and free-range laying hens.
Our pastures are pesticide and herbicide free and we never supplement our livestock with hormones or antibiotics.
Lamb is available whole. It can be custom cut, wrapped and frozen to your specifications. Since we do not sell individual cuts of meat, you can always be assured that the lamb you purchase will be at its absolute freshest. We use Groff’s in Elizabethtown, PA to process our lambs. They are a family owned and operated business that is USDA inspected and has been in continuous operation since 1875. Eggs are available year-round at the farm.
For additional information, stop by or give us a call.

WIL–AR Farms is a small, family farm located near Newville, in south central Pennsylvania. We have concerns about the health of our land, our family, and our customers. We do not use chemicals or hormones on our farm. Working in harmony with nature is our rule. We are an all-grass based farm, which means that our animals are raised on pasture.
Limited amounts of a broad range of products including grassfed beef, veal, lamb, rabbits, pork, chickens, turkeys, and eggs. Raw milk cheeses, aged at least 60 days, are made right on the farm from totally grassfed Jersey cows.
We strive to farm in harmony with the seasons. Cycling our production with nature’s seasons must not be compromised. As soon as we produce food against the seasons, disease, costs, and environmental degradation escalate. We calve when the deer are fawning, start chicks when the wild turkey eggs are hatching, and increase our workload when the days are longer.

Willow Springs Farm has been farmed for 13 years without artificial chemicals of any kind. In trying to farm in harmony with nature, we raise everything on native pasture with the seasons. We are committed to preserving our land as well as raising healthy, quality food for ourselves and others.
We raise sheep, chickens, and rabbits. Currently we have a limited supply of aged raw sheep milk cheese (cracked pepperjack) pastured chickens (frozen) and rabbit. Our rabbits are currently raised in a building, but we are working on a pasture growing system for this summer. Our lambs are raised on pasture, no grain. Our sheep milk is produced entirely from pasture. Due to cost and availability, our chickens do receive non-organically grown feed, but with no hormones or antibiotics, and are moved to fresh pasture 1–2 times daily.
Processing of all products is done by hand by local small family operations. Fresh products are available from June through October by pre-order. Frozen chicken, rabbit, and lamb are available year round. Call, write or e-mail for price and availability. We will ship, but love to have our customers visit to share the beauty of our farm.

Workhorse Farms of Nescopeck, PA has been providing grass fed beef to families since 1989. We offer custom cut mixed quarters, halves and whole beef to our customers. To ensure that we have enough beef for September/October, we request that orders for our beef be placed early in the year.
Our beef comes from prime, healthy young cattle raised on pasture grasses. Not only does this make our beef lean and tender, but it also has a rich flavor. To ensure that our beef maintains its best flavor and has a long storage life, it is aged, vacuum packaged and flash frozen at our butcher. ALL OUR BEEF IS CUSTOM CUT BY THE BUTCHER!
We also make available to our customers the delicious flavor of the pastured pork that your grandparents knew and loved. Our production is different from most other pig farms which gives our pork that old fashioned taste. Our pigs are allowed to roam freely in our lush grass pastures, socialize, and engage in instinctive pig behaviors such as rooting, wallowing, and foraging.
Call or e-mail us for information or to order your beef and pork.
Workhorse farms has been using sustainable farming practices since 1985. As a family, we don’t believe that things such as artificial fertilizers, herbicides, pesticides, growth hormones or unnecessary antibiotics belong in our food supply. That is why we don’t use these things on our farm.
