The pastures of Chesapeake region farms are home to increasing numbers of livestock animals being raised the “new” old-fashioned way—outdoors, exercising naturally, and grazing on grass the way nature intended. The Amazing Grazing directory will help you find local sources for steaks, ground beef, leg of lamb, sausage, bacon, eggs, smoked hams, handmade cheeses, goats’ milk fudge, cheese-stuffed pasta, Thanksgiving turkeys, Christmas geese, and more—all fresh from the pasture and direct from the farmer to you!
As consumers who take control of your food choices, you should feel free to ask any farmer about the methods used to acquire, breed, raise, feed and slaughter the animals they market in order to make the most informed purchase decisions for yourself and your family.
Support from the Maryland Grazers Network makes the publication of Amazing Grazing possible. If you are a grass-based farmer who would like to be included in the directory, follow the directions below:
