Our Philosophy

     At Royer Farm Fresh Beef, Lamb, Pork. and Chicken our mission is to raise family farm-grown meats in a healthy and natural environment. Providing delicious food for you and your family (and our family, too) is our full-time business and passion. This is not a hobby for us. Our farm has been in business for over a century, and we are working diligently to build sustainable practices to thrive another 100 years and more. It is of the utmost importance to us to treat our land, our animals, our community and our customers with respect and care.


     Everything begins with the soil, and it is a rewarding opportunity to leave the environment better than it was before. We strive to optimize our farm production with a diversity of animals (cattle, sheep, hogs, chickens, and wildlife) and plants (perennial pastures, grazing annuals, and cereal grains). The synergy among a variety of animals forages, and forests make the soil more vibrant and productive than traditional monoculture farming.

   We are dedicated to raising our animals properly. To us, this means a clean, spacious, low-stress environment; a wholesome diet of primarily locally-grown feedstuffs and feeding no hormones or antibiotics. The cattle, sheep, hogs, and chickens have plenty of room to roam getting sunshine, fresh air, and exercise. When we are caring for the animals, we always treat them calmly and maintain a peaceful environment- no loud whooping cowboys here! We have a strong commitment to our community. We work with neighboring farmers to supply the hay and straw we do not grow ourselves. All our meat is cut and wrapped at three, small family-owned butcher shops. Scott and Nikki serves as volunteer soccer coaches and 4-H leaders.

   Our customers are great! It has been a pleasure getting to know you over the years. We strive to be your beef, lamb, pork and chicken experts. Answering questions about our farm and helping you understand different meat cuts, cooking options and recipes is one of the most enjoyable things we do. We have a 100% satisfaction guarantee. If you are not pleased with your purchase, let us know.


   We will refund your money and commit to doing better next time.
We feel honored you have trusted us to supply food for you and your family. Thank you!

Our Story

Royer Farm Fresh Beef, Lamb and Pork is a family-owned Indiana farm 150 years in the making. Nikki's great-great-grandfather crossed the Wabash River and settled just outside of Clinton, Indiana back in 1874 on the 125 acres that we still farm today.

Both Scott and I (Nikki) come from agricultural backgrounds. Scott grew up showing sheep and attended Purdue University. While at college he gained valuable animal husbandry experience working at both the university's cattle and sheep farms before graduating with a degree in Animal Science. After graduation, he managed a feed mill making feed for cattle, sheep (including his own), hogs, chickens, and even a few ostriches. Scott also worked for a time with my Dad on the family farm before joining Pfizer as a research scientist.

My family was immersed in raising, breeding and showing purebred cattle breeding stock across the United States. Living on a farm was not always an easy life but a wonderful way to learn about the rewards of hard work and professionalism. Scott and I met in the 8th-grade band when he was assigned to teach me how to play the saxophone. I never did become anything more than a mediocre musician but a great friendship began. I also attended Purdue University and majored in Biochemistry followed by a stint at University of Illinois for a master's degree in Muscle Biology. I then joined a small pharmaceutical company as a sales rep.

Even before getting married in 1994, we were in the sheep business together traveling far and wide to gather our original flock of 20 ewes. It was also during this time we had our first foray into the meat business raising and selling beef one quarter at a time to friends and family. In 2000 we were shocked by the unexpected death of my Dad. Scott took over primary management of the farm and eventually left his research position in 2001 to raise livestock and farm. After the birth of our twin boys in 2004, I joined Scott full-time at home and on the farm in 2005.

We have a true commitment to continuing the legacy of the family farm. With our previous experience marketing freezer beef and with the total lack of quality lamb meat available locally, it was logical to transition the business to one bringing food from our pastures to your plate.
