Our cows spend their entire lives grazing in open Tennessee pastures.

We have slowly been breeding a herd of cows that thrive in the Tennessee hills and rolling green pastures.  They are never confined to feedlots and fed grain.  If you are not familiar with our grass-fed beef you need to give this a try.

ABOUT “HANGING WEIGHT”:

The price of the family beef is based on the hanging weight, and includes cutting, wrapping and freezing. The hanging weight is the weight of the beef while it is naturally aging in the meat locker. Once the beef is cut and packaged into individual cuts the loss of the fat, bones and other trim amounts to about 35 to 45 % of the hanging weight. So the actual take home weight of a 500 pound hanging weight beef will be around 285 pounds.

A whole beef weighing around 500 pounds will take up around 10 to 14 cubic feet of freezer space.

Local Food Letter | Sequatchie Cove Farm

It’s like trying to eat a tomato in winter from a big grocery store and expecting to meet the warm juicy sweet acidic flavorful burst of a summer heirloom. I have never been a huge banana fan but you know how they are- they’re cheap, they’re easy to eat, they taste good, and they’ve got SO much potassium.

Some of these organisms are inoculated and some are wild, but they are all allowed to express themselves and all contribute to the character of this cheese. It’s made exclusively with raw cow’s milk produced at Sequatchie Cove Farm, which is located in Coppinger Cove, from which it gets it’s name. Aged 90 days and has a natural rind which is the mosaic of different yeasts, molds and other micro-flora that are allowed to grow wild.
