Black Market Farm: Community
Supported Agriculture (CSA) creating a local movement that centers around simple, healthy food, directly from us to you. Our personal, small-scale model ensures you receive the highest level of service, and the highest quality of meat available. This business isn’t just about food – it’s a way of life. 

What you are getting when you order from Black Market Farm:

  • A relationship with your food and its producers. We offer complete transparency and an opportunity to visit - any time!
  • Animals who get the best care possible. They have room to roam. They are loved ad respected. And our rotational grazing practices means that our cows reduce the buildup of methane gas, and their waste gets absorbed back into the soil and grass, which is processed as nature intended.
  • Customized and humane butchering services: No feed lots, no assembly line processing, no trucks, no high-traffic holding pens, no shoots. That’s important to us. Personal, individual care. Always.
  • Local, sustainable food with the smallest possible carbon footprint possible.
  • Healthy versions of meat, the way nature intended. Our beef contains more heart-healthy omega-3 fatty acids, conjugated linoleic acid (a type of fat that's thought to reduce heart disease and cancer risks) & antioxidant vitamins, such as vitamin E.
  • An opportunity to support your local rancher and your community directly.
  • Pure, honest, simple, whole, fantastic meat. Antibiotic free, premium, pasture-raised meat and free-range eggs. Beef that is 100% grass-fed and grass-finished.
    We have 70 years of collective experience raising beef, pork and chicken in various conditions. Rest assured, healthy doses of Wyoming sunshine and mountain pastures make some mighty fine meat! We've got this down. And now you can join us! We'd love to have you be a part of our story as it continues to grow.

    The Early Chapters

    It all started in 2008 when father, Arthur Sigel, decided to join a local winter farmers market in Laramie, Wyoming. His decision to join was made because of our growing underground following of friends and family buying grass fed and grass finished beef. Our community loved having first-hand knowledge of their food and their rancher. What started as a rewarding side business has blossomed into a thriving community demand. Our specialty in grass fed beef expanded to include pasture raised pork; pasture raised chickens and eggs. Our name, "Black Market Farm" honors the story of how we began:  one family at a time.


    With an 8,000-foot elevation, Hecht Creek Ranch is located in Centennial, Wyoming, just 20 miles outside of Laramie. With a population of 100, there are more animals on our farm than there are people in our town. Hecht Creek Ranch is named after the small stream that flows through two canyons in Sheep Mountain onto the ranch. The ranch buildings are located along and above Hecht Creek. The creek itself was named after Mr. Reynold Hecht, who homesteaded the ranch in the late 1800's.
