It is my passion to raise and sell food the way my grandparents (and great-grandparents!) did. Raising trustworthy food without chemicals, medications, or factory farming techniques. Healthy, pastured beef cattle and hand-planted heirloom produce, never coated with pesticides or herbicides.
My dream is to bring back the golden days of farming: when farmers could feed their food to their own children, when neighbors could trust their local farmers to provide safe and responsible nutrition. I believe the only way to ensure the safety and sustainability of your food is to form a relationship with your local farmer; I want to be that farmer for you. If I am not, I would still like to help you find someone to fill your family’s needs.
My cows enjoy free range over more than 200 acres. To ensure their diet remains healthy and lush, they are moved seasonally around the farm, always having access to fresh grass. I don’t need to preach about the benefits of grass fed cattle; you know their guts aren’t designed for corn, sugar, or other dietary additives they are often given for rapid weight and fat gain. This has never, and will never, happen on Copperhead. Each and every cow I sell has been raised from birth on my farm. This ensures that the cow was never given antibiotics or hormones early in life, and that the cow was not fattened with corn. This also allows me to control the genetics of my cattle population. Our cows have never received medication of any kind, and are exclusively pastured on grass and well water.
