Raised locally on our family farm for your family table! Helping to feed your family the way we want to feed our clean and natural as we can!

We love working with and supporting other local farmers and businesses! We've been working with a local cattle farmer to buy our steers for the past 6 years.  I (Kasey) have personally known this farmer for over 25 years!  He has a wonderful operation and great stock! While we are working on growing our own cow/calf herd; in the meantime we have been purchasing our weaned calves to feed out from this farmer.  

We also work with a local nutritionist and feed mill to provide our cattle the best selection of fresh grain and minerals!  Throughout their life span on our farm we feed our steers an alfalfa/grass hay grown on our family farm just down the road.  It is raised all natural with no chemicals being sprayed on it.  We also feed the steers non gmo corn from my families farm for their last 90 days before harvest.  Our steers never not have an unlimited buffet of fresh grass or alfalfa/grass hay in front of them. This produces an amazing flavor and tenderness that keeps our customers coming back for more!
