How Can I Get Some Beef?
Our farm is located in Palestine, IL a 4 hour drive straight south of Chicago or 2 hours south west of Indianapolis. The quickest way to get beef is to get some right from the farm, that way you can also see our operation too. If it's too far though, we also deliver to Orland Park and Indianapolis a few times a year.
We generally butcher in the spring, summer, and fall but our cows determine the schedule - not us. You can buy in bulk (halves, quarters), or just get some of your favorite cuts. If you have been advised by a health professional to switch to an all grass fed beef diet, let us know so we can be sure to put your request on the top of our order list (if there is a waiting list at the time).

We have plenty of beef in stock at our Beef Store on the farm, so tell your friends and please help spread the word. Halves and quarters also available and are priced lower than 2016!

GMO Free Chickens
Our chickens are raised on fresh pasture and fed Non GMO feed (chickens unlike cows need some grains in their diet). They are $4.00/lb and the average bird size is 4lb each.
Unfortunately we don’t have enough hours in our day to raise the chickens on our farm anymore, but our chickens are raised by families a few miles from us, exactly how we would do it.
We have plenty of chicken on hand ready to buy at our store. Come get some anytime!
