GRASS-FED BEEF & RAW MILK - PASTURE-RAISED CHICKEN, PORK, EGGS
Barrington Natural Farms is sustainable "pasture" farm providing our Chicago-area customers with locally grown, organically-raised grass-fed beef, raw milk, and pasture-raised chicken, pork, and free-range eggs.
Growing the highest quality, nutrient-dense foods possible is our goal. We believe that good food is nutritious and delicious. We believe the way to raise livestock is to provide an environment that mimics nature and is integrated with our natural environment. This means they are raised outdoors on fresh pasture for the majority of their lives, with the pigs and chickens organic pasture forage supplemented with organic, non-GMO feeds.
We don't use any pesticides, herbicides, or synthetic fertilizers on our land, and our animals are raised free of hormones, fungicides, and chemical dewormers. We only use antibiotics if an animal's life is in danger (once). We keep them healthy with lots of sunshine, fresh air, clean pasture forage, and a low stress natural lifestyle.
