Our meats are lifetime antibiotic and hormone free and fed a 100% vegetarian diet.
We understood the importance of carrying antibiotic and hormone free meats before it was widely known, and have sold it this way for three decades. Why? Because it’s the right thing to do. Not only that, but our beef is a higher grade with better marbling, yielding the optimum flavor.
DLM Natural Beef
Our DLM Natural Beef features U.S.D.A Prime & Choice cuts, lifetime free of antibiotics and certified humane. We partner with Niman Ranch for our DLM Natural Beef and do so because we believe their quality of beef is the best. Angus cattle are raised on small family ranches with ample pasture and are fed a 100% vegetarian diet free of antibiotics and hormones. The USDA Choice & Prime designations equate to ultimate flavor and tenderness.
Symmes Creek Ranch
Nestled in Gallia County, Ohio, our Love Local friends at Symmes Creek Ranch are carving a new path in the cattle industry by raising antibiotic free, grass-fed, and grain-finished cattle that is Non-GMO Project verified. The Angus cattle have access to fresh water from Symmes Creek, which borders the ranch.
DLM Local Grass-fed Beef
Our DLM Local Grass-fed Beef Program is possible thanks to Love Local farming families, like the Bensmans, Clarks, and Hannas. All of these families work with us to ensure that the cattle are raised according to our grass-fed beef best practices, meaning they are fed a 100% grass-fed diet and are antibiotic free.
Finding a better bird.
We believe in chicken and turkey that is full of flavor, juicy, free of hormones, and never administered antibiotics. Even more, we believe in carrying poultry from people who we trust, including our local partners Hill Family Farm and Bowman & Landes.
DLM Natural Chicken
What’s so special about DLM Natural Chicken, which we get from our friends at Bell & Evans? It’s much heavier breasted and flavorful. It’s air-chilled, containing less absorbed water than others. The texture is firmer due to the breed of the bird, the room that the birds have to move around in, and the absence of antibiotics in the feed. This USDA organic, air-chilled, antibiotic free, and certified humane chicken is definitely the DLM quality we pride ourselves on providing.
Hill Family Farm Chicken
We’ve partnered with Hill Family Farm for more than 20 years and every day we’re grateful that Dorothy Lane Market is in the small circle that Ed & Joyce Hill provide chickens to, including a pocket of local restaurants. They not only offer local chicken raised in Xenia, Ohio, that are free-roaming and fed a diet free of antibiotics and animal by-products, but the chicken tastes good—rich in flavor and the perfect texture. It’s the kind of chicken you want to have at the table often, but especially when your entire family gathers around. It’s a barnyard, free-roaming chicken that we also know is raised with heart.
DLM Free-Range Turkey
The DLM Free-Range Turkey proudly wears all of the best buzz words: local, vegetarian fed, gluten free, fresh, free range, no antibiotics, and also is Non-GMO Project Verified. Did we mention that it’s delicious, too?
To get the Non-GMO Project Verified certification is an ongoing process of farm audits and farm audits to make sure these special flocks are raised non-GMO. Together with New Carlisle, Ohio-based Bowman & Landes turkey farm, we are thrilled to feature a turkey we are proud to have on our table.
