The family farm advantage

At Slagel Family Farm, we strive for quality rather than quantity. We work hard every day to bring our customers a healthy, consistent product with a taste they will remember.

Our livestock are raised all-naturally in an outdoor environment. They are fed grain, grass, and hay raised on our own farm. In addition, no implants or hormones are used. Genetic emphasis for high marbling cattle and hogs has resulted in Slagel Family Farm producing beef and pork that yields tender, juicy cuts of meat. Consistent genetics are also very important to us, so you as a customer will be satisfied time and again.

Quality controlled processing

In addition to raising our livestock without added hormones, steroids, or constant levels of antibiotics, we also control the processing. Our livestock are processed at Slagel Family Meats, our own facility in Forrest, IL. We do not use preservatives or artificial additives during processing. This means our products are 100% pure, unlike products from large commercial companies that have 5-10% saltwater solution injected into them.
