About Grass Roots Farmer's Cooperative

Grass Roots Farmer’s Cooperative is a 100% farmer owned subscription service based in Arkansas. Their farms are all family owned and committed to sustainable, ethical practices that result in the very best for their animals, their land, and their customers.

Customize your box of quality cuts of grass-fed beef, pastured chicken, pastured turkey, and forested pork, or select one of their handpicked boxes. No matter what you choose, you can be certain of the standards that Grass Roots applies at every step of the way.

They are committed to complete transparency: they want you to know who raised your meat and how the animals lived, who processed them, what you’re paying for, and where your money goes.

Pasture raised animals give the healthiest meat, and all of Grass Roots’ animals are free from GMO’s, antibiotics, and hormones. Grass Roots Cooperative is leading the meat industry in ethical, sustainable, and transparent practices, and delivering the best meat from real farms right to your door.


Members of Grass Roots can build their own box by selecting from nearly 50 different products and cuts of pastured chicken and turkey, 100% grass-fed beef, and forested pork.

Just a few of the options include ground beef, chicken breasts, chicken drumsticks, naturally smoked uncured bacon, t-bone pork chops, pork spare ribs, bratwurst, jagerwurst, mesquite lime sausages, ground Italian sausage, beef shanks, and sliced pork belly.

Members can also choose from pre-designed boxes with a variety of handpicked cuts, such as the Basics Box, The Keto Box, The Paleo Box, The Clean Box, The Bulletproof Box, and The Broth Box.

How Does It Work?

For the members of Grass Roots Co-op, sourcing responsibly and eating well is as simple as selecting or building their box, signing up, and unpacking their delivery from its biodegradable cooler when it arrives via FedEx each month.

Once you have built your custom box, you can easily change what’s in your next delivery, pause, or cancel at any time through your online account.

Each package of meat is labelled with the name of the farm the animal came from, the size of the group it was raised in, the number of square feet of pasture it had access to, the name of the processor, date it was processed, and number of animals in the processing batch.

The money you pay goes directly to cover the expenses of the cooperative and return a small profit to the farmers themselves, enabling them to focus on the craft of farming and make a living by doing it right.

For the farmers of Grass Roots, raising animals responsibly is much more complicated - in fact, it’s their lives’ work. They raise their animals in environments which mimic each species’ natural habitats and allow them to express their instinctive behaviors, so their lives are filled with fresh air, sunlight, grass and water, and space to move and interact.

Small farms and small herds mean that the farmers care for each individual animal daily, ensuring that they are free from disease and stress. They focus on keeping their herds healthy naturally, without the use of maintenance antibiotics, growth hormones, herbicides, or genetically modified organisms in feed or medicines. They use rotational grazing to increase productivity while also sequestering carbon, enriching the soil, increasing water retention, and promoting biodiversity.

Grass Roots members are supporting a movement which believes that animal welfare and environmental stewardship should be at the heart of agriculture, and that transparent business practices and conscientious consumerism can help to change the way we approach our food.
