Barrington Natural Farms is sustainable "pasture" farm providing our Chicago-area customers with locally grown, organically-raised grass-fed beef, pasture-raised chicken and pork, and free-range eggs.
All of our livestock are raised outdoors on pasture, eating what nature intended - naturally-grown ryegrass, timothy grass, meadow fescue, clover, and alfalfa in the pasture, with the chickens and hogs pasture forage diet supplemented with organically-certified, non-GMO grains and surplus organic fruits and vegetables.
We are dedicated to using sustainable agriculture practices, so we don't use any chemical fertilizers, pesticides, herbicides, fungicides, or any other "cides" on our land or in our animals. We rotate the chickens, pigs, and cattle to fresh pasture regularly during the spring, summer, and fall months, and use a deep bedding system in the winter which we then convert to garden compost in the spring.
We do not feed, implant, or inject our animals with hormones, antibiotics, chemical dewormers, or any other pharmaceuticall concoctions typically used in the industrial/confinement-based food system, except in very rare circumstances to treat a specific life-threatening illness. The fresh air, clean water, lush pasture, low-stress lifestyle, and clean, mineral-rich soil keep our livestock exceptionally healthy.
We invite you to visit our farm this spring and discover a fresh, healthy local source for your beef, pork, chicken, and eggs.
