Ark Republic’s Ultimate Guide to Black farmers selling beef, poultry, pork, goat, lamb and seafood

17 mins read

From pasture-raised beef cattle to free range chickens to fresh caught fish, our annual ultimate guide prepares foodies for a summer of delicious local cuts of the highest quality of meats, fish, pork and poultry.

Juneteenth marks the beginning of warm weather and outdoor gatherings where grilling and barbecuing is a cherished culinary choice. So whose meat will you use on the grill? This is where Ark Republic and Black Farmers Index enter into your planning for our annual Ultimate *Guide to Black Farmers’ Beef, Poultry, Pork, Goat, Lamb and Seafood

This list started during the pandemic when food shortages resulted in work stoppages and skyrocketing food prices. Plus, people reported subpar food in grocery stores. So we collaborated with Black Farmers Index for their recommendations of ranchers and farmers who raise and sell the best cuts of meat. So popular, the list is a must-use staple for those who want to support Black farmers and diversify their food supply.

On the list, you will see that many offer pasture-raised, grass-fed, non-hormone, and free range animals to produce the highest quality of proteins. On Wildflower Farm NJ, farmer Tomia McQueen’s meticulously raised chickens and lamb are fed a corn-and-soy free feed she produces. One of her methods is to pack in fresh ingredients to boost the mineral and vitamin-intake for her yard birds. 

Renard and Chinette Turner of Vanguard Ranch Natural Gourmet in Gordonsville, Virginia have been using regenerative, conservation and organic practices for their popular goat meat. Using myotonic meat goats, and their own breed called Bangus, they also sell their line of popular goat burgers, goat kabobs and curry goat.Included in our list are organic growers such as Hilery Gobert of Driftwood Farm, who sells eggs that are fresh from his chickens as well as poultry and beef cattle using organic growing methods. When he explained the quality of meat straight-from-the-farm he says, “It’s the care that you give the animal. If it’s grass-fed beef, there is a different taste than the stock-fed beef [cattle] that’s given corn.”

The farmer whose estate is in Iowa, Louisiana adds, “Our chickens are free range and because they are able to eat all the insects, which is what chickens do, the taste is different.” But, Gobert admits, “Some people say they don’t like country chickens because they’ve eaten store-bought chicken their whole lives. It is just a different quality of meat. The eggs are the same way. You can actually see the difference in color.”

Plus, in our guide, we added fisherfolk who catch and raise seafood from oysters to catfish. As well, you will be able to tap into some women farmers and family farmers too.

Another boost to Black farmers is that there is a growing number who have added shipping to their operations, which gives consumers more options to purchase. Places like Freedom Acres Ranch, Apex Seafood, Dollison Farms and Briarwood Cattle Farm provide shipping throughout the U.S. Other farms, such as Ridall Green Partnership in Cleveland, sell tilapia from their fish farm, and also cook it every Friday in their restaurant.

The 2024 list has additions and some farms that have either shuttered their operations or postponed a growing season. Because small farms are labor-intensive and costly, this happens throughout the agricultural community. Nonetheless, there is still an impressive list of over 100 farmers that you can tap into. If you want a more comprehensive list, go to Black Farmers Index where they have over 1,300 farmers lists. We hope that you can locate someone in your area that can amplify your growing season and recycle money back into communities that are the backbone of the country’s agricultural system.

*Guide’s Note: Black Farmers Index. The farms they list are at least 30 percent Black-owned. This was done to take into account that businesses and family farms are multi-racial enterprises. Also, please note that farms sometimes skip seasons in selling or shutter. Also farmers change their production and what they raise. That is the nature of small farming, but please do not be discouraged. We hope this encourages you to seek out a Black farmer to purchase your food. Since we annually put out lists, we only update our yearly list of farms.
