Cedar Meadow Swine was established as a farm when my grandpa purchased the farm in 1956 after he was unable to buy several other properties. He based the farm around producing hogs, in conjunction with cattle to add diversity to the business; quite different from the typical dairy farm of the area. The cedar meadow above the barn was used to house the sows and hence the farm was named “Cedar Meadow Swine”. The farm is now in its second generation and although it has grown, the concept stays the same.
Our goal is to manage what we have sustainably in order to enhance our soils and minimize our carbon footprint. We utilize strategies such as cover cropping, not tilling, managing our water run-off, and creating buffers along our waterways. We take pride in the fact that we use our livestock’s manure to feed the crops, the crops to feed our livestock, and our livestock to feed us as well as many other families. As farmers and stewards of the land we view this as a key responsibility.
Farm to fork flavor far outpaces that found in the grocery store. How the animal was fed, the quality of the cut, and even the butcher all make the difference. In fact, did you know that the highest premium cuts on the market are sold overseas and never make it to the grocery cooler? The best beef eating experience can sometimes only be found by sourcing your meat privately.
These cattle will be processed at either Martin's Custom Butchering in New Holland, PA, Rocky Ridge Meats in Strasburg, Pa or Smokers Butchering in Ronks, Pa. They are some of our favorite butchers and do an exceptional job.

Know the difference, local beef contains nutrient dense protein important in every healthy diet.
The highest premium cuts on the market can only be found through sourcing your beef locally.
A 3-oz serving of cooked beef = 25 grams of high-quality protein plus 9 other essential nutrients in one tasty package. High-quality protein, like beef, contains the essential amino acid leucine, which research shows activates the muscle-building switch in the body.
Beef is a nutritional powerhouse in a smaller package than other protein foods. Apart from being a great source of protein, it would take 8 ounces of cooked chicken breast to eat the same amount of iron as in just 3 ounces of beef, and nearly 7 times (20 ounces) the amount of chicken to get the same amount of zinc in a serving of beef!
Can I order less than a quarter?
Unfortunately no, because we use a custom butcher instead of a USDA processing plant.
