Woodland Ridge Farm & Learning Center
In 1995, this farm was littered with the leftovers of someone else’s life—mechanical debris, hundreds of old tires, and more. Now, instead of broken down old cars, there are green blades of grass and the snorting of happy pigs.
“Leo” the full-blooded Tamworth boar, makes his home here, grazing and growing his family since 2010. Nearly all of Woodland Ridge Farm’s pigs (including Leo’s offspring) spend their lives running around with their birth group outdoors. The barn offers a way to keep Leo’s amorous approaches at bay from time to time. These pigs NEVER feel concrete under their feet, they are never given any type of antibiotic or growth hormone cocktail, and are gainfully employed as “brush hogs,” clearing unwanted growth on property around Ohio.
Six Buckets Farm
Seth and Lyndsey Teter raise heritage breed hogs close to nature on pastures of the Tuscarawas River Valley. Their herd includes a full-bodied mix of Large Blacks, Gloucestershire Old Spots, Red Wattles, Durocs and Berkshires.
During the growing season, the pigs graze wooded hills and clover fields. In the winter, they nestle in straw-bedded huts. By letting their animals forage in a natural environment, they’re working to produce flavorful pork while carrying on the best traditions of Appalachian agriculture.
Chad and Renee McDowell have three children and operate their farm in Winchester, Ohio. Their Duroc/Yorkshire hogs are anti-biotic and hormone free and are fed non-GMO feed. They are rated Step 3 by the GAP program.
RL Valley Ranch
RL Valley Ranch is run by husband and wife team Rob and Leah Phillips. RL serves as the finishing operation for The Butcher & Grocer’s beef offerings. The farm has been in the Phillips family for 5 generations.
RL Valley Ranch is a solar-powered farm where the beef cattle are given a highly specialized feed mixture of non-GMO grain that is grown on RL fields. The corn is processed on-site. The cattle are NEVER given hormones or antibiotics and are finished in a natural environment where they roam around and eat at the feed bunk whenever they feel like it.
Rob and Leah have created a great partnership with Jackie O’s Brewery in Athens, Ohio. Twice a week RL picks up a truckload of spent brewer’s grain, which is mixed with corn feed to create a tasty mixture that the cattle love.
New Creation Farm
Located in Geauga County, New Creation Farm is a first generation farm started by high school sweethearts Scott and Kristen Boehnlein. Much like our shop, they started farming as a way to make sure their 8 children were getting clean wholesome meat.
All of their animals are free of anti-biotics and hormones and are fed non-GMO feed.

Sweet Grass Dairy
In addition to their organic dairy operation, Jacob Coleman and his wife, Liz, are raising amazing chickens on their 200-acre organic farm. The Colemans moved to their farm in 2013 and have transformed it into a place where healthy soil gives rise to healthy plants, which feed healthy animals and provide people with the healthy components of a good diet.
Every day, twice a day, Sweet Grass Dairy chickens are moved onto fresh pasture. They are also provided with a non-GMO grain-based feed in addition to the fresh pasture smorgasbord.
Laurel Valley Creamery
Laurel Valley Creamery is located on a family farm which is a grass based sustainable producer of grade A Jersey milk that they craft into small batches of farmstead cheese.
They specialize in naturally aged raw milk cheese in addition to making several pasteurized specialty cheeses.
