Our family farms in the Apple River Valley and surrounding hills near Elizabeth in the heart of beautiful Jo Daviess County, Illinois. We raise grass and grain finished beef, pork, sheep, pastured chicken and turkey. We are the fourth and fifth generation of Arnolds to farm this land and take great pride in caring for it. We strive to farm in harmony with the natural environment and use systems that need few commercial inputs, such as rotational grazing for the livestock and crop rotations for the fields.

We believe our chemical and antibiotic-free meat is pure, wholesome, and tender with excellent flavor. We use no growth hormones, animal byproducts, or GMO corn in our animal feed rations.  

Our beef, pork, lamb, and poultry are processed locally at USDA-inspected  plants with excellent reputations and packaged in easy to use portions. Irradiation is not used nor is water added. We offer whole animals, sides, quantity packages, and individual cuts.  Products may be purchased at our farm (open by appointment), at selected northwestern Illinois farmer's markets, or by delivery to the Chicago area (call or email for monthly newsletter and details).  

We think you will find our meat a purer, fresher, and more flavorful product than generally found. We encourage your comments and questions. Please call us at 815-858-2407 or send E-mail to arnoldfarm@juno.com.
