Kentucky is known around the world for the quality of its grass. In 2010, Marksbury Farm was founded by a group of like-minded individuals who wanted to steward this precious land while bringing healthy, grass-based protein to the marketplace. Marksbury Farm designed a unique program that every participating farm must follow, and they own and operate a USDA inspected processing facility in Garrard County Kentucky, where each animal is processed. This program does not allow the use of any antibiotics, steroids, or added hormones at any point, their beef is 100% grass fed and finished, hogs and chickens are raised entirely on pasture and forage for a large portion of their diet, and each animal is treated with dignity both on the farms and at the processing facility. Marksbury Farm works with partner farms in their local area in Kentucky and we at FarmFoods are excited to bring you meat from these farms.
Bluegrass Farms and Woodlands
Located in Lincoln County, KY, Bluegrass Farms and Woodlands raises high quality 100% grass fed beef and pasture raised hogs. Often working their animals on horseback to minimize stress, the Bluegrass team is committed to the safety and welfare of each animal in their care. Their intensive mob grazing methods have restored hundreds of acres of land that had been stripped of its nutrients by commercial farming practices.
The Welty family produces grass fed beef in Boyle and Garrard Counties in Central Kentucky. The Welty’s have farmed in this area for generations and have become known for their quality and consistency, while not compromising on the grazing methods and animal handling standards that are so important to them.
