Benne's Best Meat is really a "farm in the city." One of the last farms in the area, the 127 acre farm is situated in the general vicinity of Hwy 40/64 and Hwy 94 in St. Charles County. Operated by Ron and Jolene Benne, the couple raise "natural" pork, beef and poultry without the use of sub-therapeutic antibiotics or artificial growth hormones. We also have a small selection of vegetables for the 2010 season. Some will be heirloom varieties. Heritage turkeys will also be available for Thanksgiving. The farm has been in Jolene's family for eight generations, since 1801. They direct market their meat , eggs and vegetables from the farm.
Now Available: Lunch Meat without added nitrites
Drop in and visit the farm. Our hours are 11:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. Monday thru Friday. 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. on Saturday.
Our family feels that the higher up the food chain our food is, the more important it is to be "clean". So, even though we live on one income, we purchase grass-fed beef and truly free-range chickens.... [more]
Over the holiday we were in a bind to find something everyone could eat. Our daughter is a new vegetarian and our other children eat mostly vegetarian but are willing to eat "happy" meat.... [more]

I feel so, so lucky to have the Benne's close by. If you shop here, not only will you savor the fabulously delicious eggs and meat, but you will be supporting a part of American culture that is being edged out in the name of cheap, fast, tasteless, cruel, industrialized "food". Also, Jolene and Ron are such nice people!
