Beef | Watson Farms

Beef

Our cattle are raised from birth on our family farm near Lowrys, S.C.  They receive no antibiotics, no hormones, no animal by-products and no grain.  They are treated humanely throughout their life and are slaughtered humanely as well at a USDA-inspected facility in Forest City, N.C.  The carcasses are aged 2-3 weeks.  Then they are cut up, vacuum-packaged and frozen immediately.  We then transport the beef back to our freezers where it’s stored until delivery.  Our freezers are on an automatic standby generator set which provides back-up power within 30 seconds of a power outage.

We provide our growing cattle with the best grasses possible throughout their life as well as providing them with high-sugar grasses during the finishing period.  These high-energy grasses are mainly annuals such as rye, ryegrass, oats, crimson clover, sorghum-sudangrass, and crabgrass.  All of these grasses are grazed before the plant makes seed or grain so as not to compromise our grass-only protocol.

Sowing these grasses allows our beef to be free from off-flavors and to have exceptional taste and marbling.  We feel that this extra investment allows our beef to stand apart from not only the industrial equivalent, but also other grass-based farms.  Place an order today and discover the difference for yourself.
