Calling all Farmers!

First off, a tip of the Stetson from one farmer to another. Thank you for working so hard to feed America. Here at Moink we know first hand just how hard is to make a go of farming, and we’re trying to fix that. At this moment our major need is for lamb growers, preferably located in the Midwest as that is where our processing and shipping facility is.

However, no matter what you grow, if you’re interested in teaming up with us, please send us your info so we can be in touch as our demand grows.

Our beef and lamb is grass fed/ grass finished and we utilize herd grazing methods. Our hogs are what us farmers would call dirt hogs (raised outside) and the same with the chickens. We feed NON-GMO grains and we also do rotational farming methods for our pork and chickens. We follow step 4 GAP cert guidelines. We do not require our farmers to be certified organic but take a biodynamic approach to farming. What’s good for the animal and the land together is our driving factor, which is how we are able to raise the animals without antibiotics, growth hormones or pesticides on our fields. It’s a lot of work but at the end of the day we find this is more sustainable for our land.

Here at Moink our farmers are like family and we look forward to welcoming you to our table.

Please email us at, with the following information, and we’ll be in touch.

  • When I first heard of your story and business I was thinking I would have a lot of respect. But, the more I read, I realize you are just promoting your products by playing on hype. You are promote family farms as the best way, but obviously only if it is family farms your way. Reading your site, farmer bios, it seem like you can only promote your product buy running down someone else’s product. Big bad confinements, gmo, antibiotics, implants. Seems like when someone has problems and can’t make it, they have to blame someone else. Yes, the big packing plants are a problem, so are government policies, but that doesn’t mean other farmers should be thrown under the bus to promote your products. I understand you are proud of your stuff, but so am I, and many others I know that farm what is apparently the “evil” way. I am a family farm. My family of 4 run 100 head of beef cows on rotional grazed pastures, I even rotate a portion of my tillable acres into pasture mixes and graze for a couple years at a time. We raise baby holsteins in groups of 100. We take these from bottle to finish, feeding about 300 per year and growing. All of our steers are corn fed and in confinement. Thay are all vacinated. If antibiotics are needed the ones needing it recieve it, and most recieve implants. They are are kept healthy, clean and not overcrowded. We also raise a handfull of hogs on a dirt lot, but they are also fed some of our grain, which is gmo. And yes, My family is making a profit. But, according to your site, this is not the right way. You promote family farms, just not my family or type of family farm. My family sells an average of 10 fat steers per year off the farm to locals for their freezer. Many have asked about implants, antibiotics, gmo. I answer the questions best I can and give them places to look at the science and they can make their own choice. I can do that without bad mouthing that stuff. I have only had a couple people over the years that have not bought. Some want non implanted so I do keep a pen of non implant cattle for customers that prefer that. When most people come out and see the cattle for themselves and actually learn what is being done they are happy with their corn fed, confined cattle. They just get a lot of mis-information and fear mongering played off of hype. Not everyone that doesnt farm the way you think is best is a bad farmer, mis-treats the land and animals and losing money. There definitely are bad apples out there, from all walks of life, but most farmers I know actually care for the animals and land and just want to do the best job with the resources they have.

  • Hello, my name is Matt Meyer and I farm in Manito, Illinois (central Illinois). My email is:

    I am a 5th generation farmer and have farmed for 45 years. Currently, I farm with my youngest son, Chance, who is 26. We farm 4000 acres of corn and soybeans mostly, but I have raised Charolais cattle, hogs, and sheep in the past (over 20 years ago).

    My concern with sheep would be a coyote threat. Please feel free to contact me at: 309.657.9099
