ALL NATURAL BEEF
Our mission is to encourage an understanding of the connection between the food we eat, the life we live, and the health of our community. We accomplish this by offering all natural hormone and antibiotic free beef.
Our beef is sold by individual cuts, straight from our JT Farms Farm Stand. Come visit us on Saturdays during the fall & winter season to see what we're all about. We also sell our beef wholesale to individuals or businesses.
Feel free to call ahead with any questions!
With the huge increase in popularity in our beef, there are a lot of people asking if our beef is grass fed. The answer is yes, we feed our cattle grass. From birth, they are either on pasture or their hay bunks are full at all times. Our cattle are all raised on forage, hay, and silage, (ground up Corn stalks). We do this to give them a well-rounded healthy balanced diet. Believe it or not the whole ground up corn stalk has good nutritional value that grasses alone do not provide.
We strive to put the best, highest quality and healthiest beef possible on your plate. We never use any antibiotics, hormones, or steroids. Our beef is conceived in Ellington, born in Ellington and raised in Ellington. We do not buy someone else’s culled animals not knowing what was done to their parents or them when they were younger. We know all our steer’s heritage and for the most part their parents were also born in Ellington (except for a few prize bulls we have purchased over the years to increase the genetics of our herd).
Let’s keep in mind that even grasses have seeds and grains in them. The little top of the grass that pops out is a seed\grain. So we need to accept the fact that any beef will, at some point, have eaten some grains.
The question you should be asking is, "Do you feed your cattle an artificially high grain diet?" And the answer is, "No we do not!"
PORK & CHICKEN
Our Duroc-cross, heritage breed pork is raised on pasture and is some of the tastiest you can find! Our pigs spend their days basking in the sun or rolling in the mud. We sell cuts of pork straight from our Farm Stand and also have whole roasters available. Please call for more information on roasting pigs.
Our free-range whole chickens and eggs can be purchased at our Farm Stand.
