McLaughlin Farm, Ltd. (6300 Browns Lake Rd., Jackson, Michigan; (517) 782 2962 ; web) is a beef farm with grass-fed Highland cattle.

John and Cathie McLaughlin, of McLaughlin Farm, are mainstays of the Westside Farmers’ Market and the Okemos Market. This past summer, I was lucky enough to take home one of their steaks for my grilling husband to throw onto the fire. The grass fed Highland Beef was saturated with flavor with a captivating almost gamey depth.
