The Meadow


The Meadow is the farm operation that produces 100% grass-fed beef for the local community.  The Meadow grew out of our experience in raising cattle over the years.  Cattle health consistently favored pasture-raising vs. confinement as well as forage-heavy diets vs. grain-heavy diets.  We also found many parts of the farm to be more conducive to perennial grass production than common row crops such as corn.  These experiences have led us to our current grass-fed beef operation.

By ordering before we butcher, you have an option to customize your bulk order. 


We are also selling steaks and ground beef by the piece at the farm stand.  


All bulk beef is from two-year-old steers that were born and raised at Garden Meadow Farm.  The steers were raised on pasture with their mother for the first six months, then weaned and fed only forages of perennial grasses, annual grasses, and legumes.  They were also provided supplemental minerals to maintain their health.  All of these steers have been healthy and none have ever received any antibiotics.  The steers have been certified by the US Department of Agriculture as Grass Fed Beef Cattle.


Bulk grass-fed beef is sold by the quarter and Eighth Pack and includes a wide selection of standard meat cuts.  The packages contain both front and rear cuts of the beef carcass.  Cuts are boneless with steaks approximately 1 inch thick.  The weight of packaged meat from one quarter of the steer is expected to be between 100 and 120 pounds. Eighth Packs are typically around 50 pounds.  All meat is packaged in vacuum sealed bags and flash frozen.


The cuts of beef that can be expected from one quarter include the following:

Here are some testimonials from some of our beef customers:

From Dan on 3/6/2015, "We had our first meal with Garden Meadow grass-fed beef tonight.  Our girls loved the beef, the best they ever tasted!  Besides the great taste, my wife and I like it because it's leaner and healthier.  We're looking forward to grass-fed beef steaks on the grill soon! We're happy to be customers of Garden Meadow Farm!"

From Cara on 4/3/2015, "The chuck roast was nicely marbled and just delicious!  Grass fed and family owned makes it even better.  It was a hit in the French Dip at my son's first birthday party!"
