Goosemobile Pastured Meats

Goosemobile Pastured Meats and 
Dakota Down Company

McCook County

Owners/operators: Tom and Ruth Neuberger

“Free-ranging, grit-eating, dirt-scratching poultry; pastured pork; grass-fed beef and lamb — raised the old-fashioned way by South Dakota family farmers”

Locally farmed — with integrity and without chemicals
For more than 35 years, third-generation farmers Tom and Ruth Neuberger have specialized in sustainable livestock farming. They began with geese (hence the Goosemobile name), and over time, they added chickens, ducks, turkeys, beef cattle, lambs, and pigs.

Throughout all their years in business, Tom and Ruth have kept their commitment to raising free-range, hormone-free animals on 100% organic pastures. They continue to build their knowledge by participating in conferences on sustainable agriculture, where the buzzwords they hear most often are “local” and “integrity.” While these concepts may be relatively new to some, they’ve been key to the Neubergers’ philosophy all along.

Direct from farm to consumer
Tom and Ruth value their customers and enjoy meeting them in person, so they sell their products directly from their Goosemobile mobile market. Direct selling lets buyers know exactly where their food comes from, how it’s produced, and who produces it – much different from the typical supermarket buying experience. As one customer affirmed, “It’s food produced with the integrity of the person standing behind it – a person you know.”

Another benefit: Profits from these products remain in the community and in the local economy.
