About Dutch Meadows Family of Farms,
Recently, we have developed partnerships with a close knit group of small, sustainable, family farms, where we practice farming with nature without using harmful pesticides, chemicals and artificial growth hormones. Where our livestock is treated with respect and letting them live their lifestyle the way God created them. We try to keep them outdoors as much as possible and create a low stress, all natural and healthy environments for them to live in.
Our group of family farmers all have special talents and a vision for the future as we work with our unique operation. We are able to use their skills in raising Livestock and producing high quality, traditional, nutrient dense, raw and organic foods. And they are able to use our marketing and communication skill as we try to pack every order as efficiently as possible.
Even though we are so dedicated to what we do, nothing is possible without you, the consumer, who has done the research and wants to join the growing community of people who want food that is clean, pure and safe to eat. Fresh from the farm! The way God intended it to be. You, who is consciously buying the best for you and your family. We need you, to maintain our lifestyle and to provide a cleaner, safer environment for the future.
We are also blessed to have a team of talented people here at the farm needed to setup and maintain a unique food supply chain through our drop point system, please refer to our buying club page for more info.
Many people tell us that our 100% grass-fed, certified organic, Raw Milk has a sweet taste and a smooth texture and our 100% grass-fed beef is beyond anything they have ever tried before. But we will let you be the judge although we think you will find it to be very robust and outstanding. We always try to exceed your expectations.
Never underestimate the power of a small group of people who want to make a difference; in fact it is the only way to make a big difference. Be the change you want to see in the world.
Working together and that alone will change the quality of life, our environment and the quality of our animals lives.
At Gap View Homestead, we believe that simple is better. Everything we make starts with fresh ingredients and prepared using time tested recipes. We add nothing that nature didn't intend. Gap View Products, the simple, delicious choice for your family.
Green Pasture Products™ is a family owned business started by Dave and Barb Wetzel in 2003. Our business focus is to provide high-quality sacred-food oils just as they were made prior to the industrialized food and farming revolution.
High-Vitamin Butter Oil is our foundation product that all our work has blossomed through. Dr. Weston Price discovered High-Vitamin Butter Oil back in the 1930's but the pinnacle of his discovery was when he combined Cod Liver Oil with High-Vitamin Butter Oil.
Today we produce the High-Vitamin Butter Oil, and we ferment the historically sacred cod and skate liver oils.
Fermenting the livers of fish to extract the oil is an old world practice that may go back as far as biblical times. During the 1850s was the beginning of the industrial food revolution and the first time cod liver oil manufacturing changed from it's historical sacred roots to an industrialized food.
We've turned back the clock and restored these sacred foods to their roots. We Are proud to offer these historical sacred foods prepared with the same great care and concern for our generational health just as our ancestors.
Dr. Price traveled the world studying the traditional diets of many cultures. In every culture he discovered sacred foods that were carefully collected and prepared to ensure the strong mind, body, and spirit of its people.
Beginning in 2003, our mother had a dream to create goat-based products. After reading an article about goats, we were compelled to buy more and more goats. Then in 2004, we received a PA raw milk permit to serve within the state of Pennsylvania.
After an apprenticeship to learn the craft of cheese making, our family-owned business began making handcrafted goat cheese in small, artisan batches.
Our family-owned company entices people all over the world to try our artisan cheese products. Our cheeses have a European touch, inspired by Europe with our own identity added to them to satisfy palettes of all types. Some European cheeses are protected, meaning we cannot use them. So we have alot of fun coming up with our own names.
Stoltzfus snacks is owned and operated by one of Dutch Meadows Family farmers. They grind fresh nut butters every week.
Suplee Hollow Cereals is a family owned business that has been licensed by the Pa Dept. of Agriculture to produce high quality cereals since 2011. Only the finest ingredients are used to produce our cereal and granola bars.
Here at Suplee Hollow Cereals we strive to maintain the highest quality and freshness for our customers. When the cereal is toasted to perfection it is immediately bagged and sealed before is loses any flavor.
We hope everyone enjoys our wholesome granola bars. And we will continue to strive for the excellence and quality that our customers expect and enjoy.

A special note from the baker/farmer: "Thank-you for your interest in the bakery at Walnut Run Farm. We operate a small on farm bakery simply by our own family with the help of a few neighbor girls. We hold high, uncompromised standards for our specialty products, using organic ingredients and heritage grains. Our goal is to produce the healthiest baked goods on the market while maintaining a memorable taste." Melvin Fisher at Walnut Run Farm
Named after their picturesque home base location in eastern Lancaster County, Welsh Mountain Apiaries is a locally thriving wild forage beekeeping operation. What began with one beehive as a Wenger family project in 2014, has incrementally grown to currently more than 140 production hives. To the happy delight of their growing list of discerning customers, they work tirelessly to ensure their honey is free from pesticides and GMO pollen. With great attention to detail, the Wenger’s keep their hives on organic farms, forests and wild meadows…allowing them to harvest and bottle local raw honey that is fresh and unfiltered.
Although it is common amongst large beekeepers, Welsh Mountain does not feed their bees high fructose corn syrup. And they keep their bees healthy by controlling mites without the use of chemicals. While it requires a lot of extra effort, instead of relying on pollination services, they consistently move their hives to locations that maximize wild forage opportunities.
We offer bread that's organic, naturally fermented, hand-shaped, hearth-baked, crusty, hearty, and all around delicious! Our sourdough culture has been developing for 20 years, giving our bread a distinctive and complex flavor profile. We use three basic ingredients in our bread and starter: organic bread flour, water, and kosher salt. Our bread tastes best if it's stored in a paper bag (to preserve that crusty crispness,) and sliced, right before you eat it. Because our bread is preservative free, we recommend freezing any portion that will not be used in 2 to 3 days. If you think you'll need to freeze some.
Wild For Salmon began as only an adventurous trip to Alaska in 2002 to do some commercial salmon fishing with a friend. Following our first fishing excursion, we arrived home with 2 coolers of salmon for our friends and family. This is when we quickly realized the uniqueness of the product and the possibilities that lie ahead. We have grown to serve individuals, buying clubs, local farm markets, restaurants, and health food stores.
June and July are busy months on the boat. The fishing season lasts approximately 5-7 weeks. Steve is the skipper of our 32’ boat, while Jenn, the first mate, and two other local men are deckhands. While on the boat, we listen to the radio to hear the official fishing periods. As we catch the salmon they are kept in refrigerated holds, making sure the quality is preserved. On average, every 10 hours we offload our fish onto a larger crab boat which takes the fish in for processing. It is quickly filleted, flash frozen, and vacuum sealed to capture the “direct from the boat” flavor. After fishing, the salmon is sent back to PA where we sell the salmon at local farm markets and other venues.
