Many people tell us that our 100% grass-fed, certified organic, Raw Milk has a sweet taste and a smooth texture and our 100% grass-fed beef is beyond anything they have ever tried before. But we will let you be the judge although we think you will find it to be very robust and outstanding. We always try to exceed your expectations.

Never underestimate the power of a small group of people who want to make a difference; in fact it is the only way to make a big difference. Be the change you want to see in the world.

Working together and that alone will change the quality of life, our environment and the quality of our animals lives.

We wish you many blessings and Good health.
Sincerely, Dutch Meadows and our family of farms
