Meet Your Meat with Freedom Farms
The livestock that’s raised on Kings Farm in Butler, PA, and other farms in the Freedom Farms network are pigs, cows and chickens. We make sure that all of the livestock are hormone-free and only treated with medication when an individual animal needs them.
Our Livestock Philosophy
Our animals live a natural, humane life. We take the way they were meant to live in the wild and enhance it in natural ways. We don’t add things manufactured by humans. We keep humans out of the equation and let the animals do what they were meant to, and the result is a high quality, great tasting meat.
Our Livestock Methods
We use intensive rotational grazing, which is a process that strategically moves livestock to fresh paddocks, or partitioned pasture areas, to allow the paddocks to regrow and replenish. Not only is this better for the soil and the forage growth, but it gives the animals constant access to forage that’s high in nutrition and easy for them to digest.
Other advantages of intensive rotational grazing include:
- Longer grazing season
- Higher animal productivity
- Lower soil impact, which allows for root growth
- Less soil erosion
- Reduction in weeds
- More efficient use of forage
- Improved nutrient distribution (manure)

Free Range Pastured Pork
Sold by the 1/2
Our pigs are born and raised on our farm near Cranberry Township, PA. They are happy to do the labor of brush hogs, root tillers, weed killers, and fertilizer spreaders in our pastures. They are free of hormones, steroids, and antibiotics. They are fed an all-natural diet, and also eat the fresh green grass of our pastures. Compared to commercial pork, our pork has a darker red color, more texture, and way more flavor. Our pastured pork is available by the half-pig for $3.00/lb. hanging weight. Add $1.00/lb. for processing.
Your half-pig package includes pork cut, double-wrapped, and frozen. Bacon and ham are cured. Estimated 60 to 75 lbs. of pork per package to take home.

100% Grass-Fed & Pastured Beef
Sold by the 1/8th
Our 100% grass-fed cows are moved into fresh paddocks of lush pasture every day, and eat only Freedom Farms fresh grass. These cows are never fed corn, which makes a leaner cut of meat—perfect for low heat and slow cooking.
Our pastured beef is also grass-fed but gets supplemental grain throughout the cold months for better flavor. Their meat is more marbled than 100% grass-fed cows, enabling you to cook it at higher temperatures.
Our beef is not confined, free ranging and free of steroids and antibiotics. Both the 100% grass-fed and pastured beef are available in 1/8th steer packages for $3.99/lb. hanging weight. Estimated hanging weight of 90 to 100 lbs. Your 1/8 steer package includes beef that is cut, packaged, and frozen—an estimated 55-75 lbs. of take home meat.
Your 1/8th includes:
- 2 Sirloin steaks
- 2 Round steaks
- 4 to 5 Delmonico steaks
- 4 to 5 T-Bone steaks

- 1 Round bone (shoulder) roast
- 2 Chuck roasts
- 1 English roast
- 2 Packs of stew cubes (1 lb. each)
- 20 to 30 lbs. Ground beef (1 lb. each)
Free Range Chickens
15 birds per larder
Our pastured chickens probably eat more salad than you! Once hatched, they’re left under heat lamps for weeks with plenty of room to roam until they are strong enough to be moved outside. We keep both the male and female birds. They are then let into the fields with roaming bottomless coops that are moved into fresh grass twice a day. Here, they are able to graze on our fields, bask in the sunshine, fertilize our crops and help the earth by spreading dirt. The constant fresh grass encourages the birds to eat lots of bugs and green material. They live clean, healthy lifestyles that promotes nutritious food for our family and yours.
Our birds are a heritage breed: “Freedom Ranger.” We believe they are far superior to regular commercial breeds, and our customers agree. Freedom Farms’ chicken is seasonal. We butcher every week from June-October. Our pastured chickens are offered to our customers for retail at $4/pound and average about 3-5 pounds per bird. But when you Stock Your Larder with 15 birds, you only pay $2.60/lb. We sell out every year, so order your Chicken Larder today!
