A1 Heritage Breed Farms is located in west central Ohio, close to Indiana, not far from I-75.
We started our farm for several key reasons. First and foremost we wanted to be sustainable. We feel that God has entrusted us as stewards of his creation. Being sustainable keeps our land and animals in the best possible health and returns the land in better shape than when we received it. Secondly, we wanted to raise the best tasting food because food should never have additives if its authentically good! Third, we wanted our children to grow up on a farm - who wouldn't? Lastly, and most importantly, we wanted food that was good for you. Raising a young and growing family, eating healthy food was a no-brainer which is why we grow everything using organic practices.
All of these decisions lead us to raising the heritage breeds of: Dexter cattle, Large Black and Red Wattle hogs, Buckeye chickens, Olberhasi goats, Bronze breasted turkeys, and several other mixed breeds of animals, most of which follow the heritage breed lines.
We currently have pastured freezer pork available $2.25/lb. live weight = to about $3.50 hanging weight. There is lots of bacon on our hogs - 30+ lbs. No wonder they call large blacks "bacon hogs." These are our personal favorites, they taste EXCELLENT. In our opinion, there is no comparison in taste and flavor!
Grass Fed Dexter beef is the fastest selling item on our farm. Dexters have excellent marbling for grass fed animals and have about a 20% larger rib eye for its size (our favorite cut! ) They are extremely docile and small. If you are used to ordering a half, then you want a whole; if you are used to a quarter, you want half a Dexter. This allows you to get all the premium cuts of meat without breaking the bank!
Pastured poultry. Please order ahead because we get our chicks in late winter/early spring. We can raise as many meat birds as our customers want, but we have to receive the orders early to get our preparations done ahead of summer. We also have pastured eggs layed by our favorite bird, the Buckeyes! What a great bird, raised in the same great state as its namesake!
Delivery available Columbus, Cincinnati, Toledo, Indianapolis and closer.
As always thank you for your business and remember to eat local and eat fresh! God Bless.
