Olde World Farms

Olde World Farms is a family farm owned and operated by John and Karla McLaughlin. Olde World Farms raises Grassfed Beef and Lamb and Pastured Chicken and Pork.

All our animals spend their lives on pasture. Our beef and lamb only receive hay and natural minerals as supplements to their grass-based diet and are never fed grain. In addition to pasture, our chickens and pigs only receive our own blend of feed and minerals. None of our animals ever receive antibiotics, artificial hormones or steroids or animal by-products of any kind. Our animals are humanely raised, and are never kept penned or in confined, unsanitary conditions.

For our beef, we select only medium-framed British breeds. The cattle are ultrasounded to determine tenderness before harvesting to ensure the cuts are of the highest possible quality. Our beef is dry-aged for 14 to 21 days, producing a tender and richly-flavored meat.

For our lamb program, we raise Katahdins. Katahdins, a type of �??¢?¯?¿?½??¯?¿?½?hair sheep,�??¢?¯?¿?½??¯?¿?½? do not produce wool and since they don�??¢?¯?¿?½??¯?¿?½?t produce wool, they lack lanolin glands in their skin, resulting in a mild, delicately flavored meat which is generally preferred by our customers.

Our Tamworth pigs are a heritage breed known for their ability to survive and prosper on pasture. Their red skin gives them an advantage in the heat and humidity of Southeast Texas. Their affinity for acorns gives them a unique flavor that can�??¢?¯?¿?½??¯?¿?½?t be matched.

The laying hens and broilers are raised on pasture in portable coops that are moved throughout the pasture to provide access to fresh grass and tasty insects.

Our meats are available at the farm by appointment or at the Houston Bayou City Farmers Market which operates every Saturday ("rain or Shine") from 8am to noon.
