Locally raised × wild, free-range


Wayward Mountain Farms is a provider of wild raised, free-range meats.



Eating wild raised, free-range meats brings back the native diet of animals; allowing them to forage on pasture and healthy soils. This process does not include fattening animals on grain, soy or other supplements. Nor does it include hormones or growth-promoting additives. Instead, wild raised aimals are free to explore their natural habitat and to live as nature designed. Because of this, wild raised animals live low-stress, nutrient rich lives- lives that are so healthy there is no reason to treat them with preventative antibiotics or other drugs. 

So, How does it work? 

Wayward Mountain Farms is a meat CSA (Community Supported Agriculture). We provide direct Farm-To-Table service by cutting out the use of a conventional grocery store. Why cut out the grocery store? Because in order to legally sell from a conventional grocery store, the FDA requires that certain methods are used to "properly" handle your meat, which may include: adding preservatives, washing meat in bleach or ammonium hydroxide (ammonia), treating meat with Carbon Monoxide so it retains it's red color longer, and even exposing meats to Ionizing Radiations. Wayward Mountain Farms uses custom exempt butchers that process meat with care in a sanitary environment, but do not add, alter, or disguise your meats. This is in addition to our already beyond organic farming practices. Your meat is simply, your meat!

So, how can we sell to you outside of the conventional grocery store? A meat CSA runs on membership shares. Legally, you must own part of the meats you are purchasing in order to use a custom exempt butcher and receive meats outside of a conventional store setting. Additionally, you are partnering with our farm to promote and grow the farm for your community. Membership shares are used to buy new livestock, sow seed, invest in healthy feed, and much more! Therefore, when you join Wayward Mountain Farms, you will purchase shares in the farm through your yearly membership. Once you are a member, you can then purchase your farm meat through Direct Buy.  Direct Buy consists of bulk orders of 15 or 30 pound boxes and are ordered online through this website, and then scheduled for pickup at a meetup location, or pickup at the farm. Direct Buy will also give you the best bang for your buck as prices are designed for bulk purchasing.  Also, as a shareholder in our farm, we are always open so you can schedule a tour and come out and see the animals your are invested in!

Chris & Tracey Pressnell

Chris & Tracey reside in Maynardville, TN. Their families comes from a long line of raising animals and butchering meat. Chris & Tracey have 7 kids together and have always raised their own meat for their family. They believe that animals should be raised on what they are naturally designed to eat, and they pride themselves in raising good, clean quality meats. 

 Their family is excited about this opportunity to serve their community with wild raised, free range meats & eggs. We hope that you will support a small locally owned family business.
