MATTER FARM BEEF
Beef is one of the most sought after farm to table products. With good reason. Humanely raised is the biggest reason local beef is purchased over store bought. Our prices save you money compared with store prices as well. Consumers are also looking for hormone and antibiotic free beef. Add to that our meat quality, customer service, taste, and support for local farmers.
We have deep respect for animals that provide us nourishment. They deserve our compassionate, dedicated care. You can buy with confidence knowing these animals are humanely raised.
GRASS AND CORN FED
Our cows are not fed beef pellets or feed stuffs that increase growth rate. They are fed grass, hay, and corn; all of which have been grown here on the farm.
HORMONE AND ANTIBIOTIC FREE
Our LUCKY cows are never given any growth hormones and antibiotic free.
Beef is now available from our farm to your freezer. We have 2-3 steers going in monthly.
