ABOUT SUMMERFIELD FARMS:
ABOUT OUR CATTLE:
We provide our herd of cattle with some of the most diverse grasses in the Piedmont. We go above and beyond to nurture our soils and care for the welfare of our animals in an effort to raise high-quality, great-tasting, nutrient-dense beef.
We consider our beef to be beyond organic, as our cattle are raised without added hormones, antibiotics, or steroids. We would never dream of feeding them animal by-products; they are raised on mother’s milk and grasses alone- no grain ever! Our pastures are devoid of glyphosate (the active ingredient in RoundUp®) and GE/GMO seeds (genetically engineered or genetically modified organisms). Studies have shown that genetically engineered crops are nutritionally inferior on account of glyphosate blocking the plant’s ability to absorb vital micronutrients. We practice holistic management, which, simply put, means that we nurture the land by naturally enhancing the soils by the animals’ outputs (manure and urine). We practice Holistic Management, a decision making process under which all the ecological parts of the land and effecting inputs are considered at each decision point. Our purpose in utilizing this process is to ensure that we optimize soil health by using livestock as a management tool.
We like to call our beef "Gourmet Beef on Grass™". Similar to fine wine that is aged to perfection, beef from our grass fed cattle is aged live until it is finished on a continuous positive plane of nutrition. The end result? The best high-quality, great-tasting, nutrient-dense 100% grass-fed beef around.
We consider ourselves to be “Certified Transparent.” If you have any questions about the way we raise our animals, the forages that they feed on, or anything else with regards to our operation, we would be more than happy to take you out on the farm so that you can see our work for yourself.
