About Dalton Farms

Edward & Rebecca Dalton (along with their 3 sons) Isaac, Lucas and Simon are the 7th generation at Dalton Farms LLC in Wakeman, OH! When they took over the farm, they had a feeling of obligation but have since found it to be their passion with a specific goal in mind - grow a healthy and affordable product.

They knew that in order to be sustainable for years to come, they would need to make changes to current practices. Although change is scary, they felt it was necessary. In 2019, they decided to transition half of their 2000-acre farm to organic production and started growing organic crops for the first time in years. 

In addition to organic crops, they farm 1000 acres of conventional crops, raise beef and collaborate with other local farms to supply farm raised meat to their customers like chicken and pork. It is important to them that the meat they are raising and selling be all natural and raised on a local family farm. No added hormones. No unnecessary antibiotics. You won’t find better quality for the price!

What is a pork chop?

Pork Chops are one of the most common cuts of pork and are cut from the loin. There are a variety of different types of pork chops but they all cook the same and when cooked properly to 145 degrees each will result in an enjoyable eating experience. 

How to cook a pork chop

When it comes to cooking pork chops, a great rule of thumb to keep in mind is that even with the variety of different types of pork chops that are available, they all will cook the same. Whether you plan on grilling, baking, sauteing and even air frying your chops, if you are looking for a delicious and tender eating experience be sure to cook your chop to an internal temperature of 145 degrees. The time and temperature of cooking will depend on the thickness of the chop and whether it is bone in or not, the typical chop will be ½ to 2 inches thick. 

Types of Pork Chops

When at the grocery or your local butcher shop you may come across a variety of different types of pork chops, here are a few tips and tricks to keep in mind in helping you distinguish the differences between each one. 

Pork Chops are one of the most popular cups of pork, all being cut from a portion of the loin which is the portion of meat that extends from the hip to the shoulder of the pig.

PorterHouse Chop: 

The PorterHouse Chops are cut from the lower back just behind the rib chop. You will recognize this cut by its characteristic t-bone shape. These are large chops that contain a lot of meat as well as a portion of the tenderloin. 

T-Bone Chop: 

The T-bone Chop is the same as the porterhouse chop with the addition that any portion of the tenderloin shall be exposed on at least one side of the chop.

Ribeye Chop: 

The Ribeye Chop is derived from the rib portion of the bone-in center cut rib and includes some back and rib bone. The ribeye chop can come frenched meaning that all the meat around the rib bone has been removed.

New York Chop/ Center Cut Pork Chop: 

The New York or Center Cut pork chops are boneless and are located right above the loin chop, toward the head. Typically you will see this chop cut at 1 ¼ inch thick. 

Blade Chop: 

The Blade Chops are cut from the beginning of the loin or shoulder area and may contain some blade bone as well as the back rib bone. These chops are typically cut thicker, tend to be more marbled and are most commonly prepared butterflied or as pork loin country style ribs.

Dalton Farms Reviews

I have tried several mail order farms. Most were good but Dalton Farms is exceptional. Their ground beef is tender and no rubbery pieces like I experienced with other farms. I made burgers several times and overcooked one batch and they were still tender. I bought the boneless ham for Easter and everyone raved how good it was. I noticed not only was it flavorful but moist. The best moist ham ever. Never buy from the grocery or spiral sliced again. Shop local everyone !!!!!

I keep hearing great things about this place! The beef and chicken is amazing! You can’t beat cheaper yet, fresher meat!

Loved the beef and chicken from Dalton Farms! Ordering again soon!

Really pleased with our 1/2 of beef. The freshness plus the personalized cut selection was so appreciated. How can we go back to store bought? Love the clean operation they run. We will be back for more! Thank you!!

Great selection of beef,chicken everything you need for freezer they have it.

This is the second year I got a quarter beef from Dalton Farms. Cheaper and fresher than buying beef at the store and the quality is so good. This is how I will continue to buy all my beef in the future

We purchased two 5+ pound standing rib roasts. The roasts looked great with medium marbling. Dalton Farms had separated the rib bones from the meat and put them back in place with butchers twine, saving me a half hour.. We used an applewood rub and hickory smoked it @ 210 until the internal temp was 130. After a 10 minute rest we sliced off a couple of steaks. They were remarkable! Great flavor and that firm tenderness you look for in a prime rib. In a good restaurant this would have been a $50+ steak. Next time I think that I will season with a little salt and pepper instead of a rub. Kudos to Rebecca and the Dalton Farms crew. 5 stars!


We have purchased individual steaks from Dalton’s a few times. We decided it would be best to order 1/2 of beef. We picked everything up this week, and everything was nicely packaged and organized. The meat is always so delicious we receive from Dalton Farms. Would certainly recommend their products to anyone. Pricing was great too!

Absolutely THE BEST beef I have ever had! The prices are good and I’m so happy to have discovered Dalton Farm! The family is warm, welcoming, and devoted to offering the best products. What more can you ask for?! Definitely recommend 100% to anyone I can! When I can (I work A LOT) I travel about 35 minutes just to buy from them and it’s the highlight of my day. My older kids will even go get stuff when I can’t or enjoy going with me when I do!

Awesome tast of beef and awesome service. they are excellent
