Healthy and Happy Animals
Industrial, mass-produced, farming practices cause less than ideal environment for livestock. Causing stress on animals and making them dependent on hormones and antibiotics. Our animals are raised in a natural environment the way the Maker intended, with plenty of fresh air and sunshine. They are fed the highest quality of food and live with minimal stress. A happy and healthy animal means healthy meat for you!
Healing our Bodies
There is truth to the phrase “We are what we eat.” Because our cows and sheep are 100% grassfed and our chickens and turkeys are pasture raised, they are healthier animals. This means the meat you get from The Makers Meadow is healthy for you to eat. When you eat nutrient dense food, simply put, it’s better for your body.
Healing the Environment
Regenerative Farming practices reverse the effects of climate change. Through rotating animals into new pastures their waste helps create nutrient dense soil. Healthy soil contains billions of good bacteria that reduce carbon levels at an effective rate! And because we sell locally we reduce the amount of carbon emissions from not shipping our product all over the country. We truly are making the environment a better place.

Growing our Local Economy
Studies show that when you shop locally over 50% of money spent circulates back into the local economy making area businesses stronger. When you shop at big chain stores around 15% circulates back into the local economy. Shopping locally makes Dayton stronger and builds a recession resistant local economy.
Food was meant to heal and nourish our bodies.

Meadow Raised / Pasture-Raised The animals feed on a large diversity of plants that grow in the meadows. Each plant pulls up different nutrients from the soil that benefits the animals as well as you.
