Amazing Grazing

Amazing Grazing coverThe 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!

You can view a pdf of the directory, visit our searchable database (which is updated to include the latest information), or This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it by mail.

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.

Luckily for consumers in the Chesapeake Bay area, there are more than 120 grazers in Delaware, Maryland, Virginia, and West Virginia offering their pastured products directly to the public. These folks will be happy to discuss their offerings, suggest recipes and supply cooking tips. We hope you enjoy their products and the satisfaction that comes from supporting these local, family-run grass-based farms.

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:
