JT Farms has delicious beef and a wide selection of pork, poultry, eggs & produce. We produce the sweetest corn you'll ever taste anywhere.
Nothing beats fresh produce for flavor and health.
Produce from the supermarkets can be picked days, even weeks before reaching the store, losing most of it's nutritional value and flavor before reaching the shelves, by the time it reaches your table it is about as nutritious and tasteless as a paper sack.. We pick fresh every day! From our fields to your table the way nature intended.
With the huge Increase of 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 have tried raising 100% grass fed beef in the past and surprisingly the animals are not as healthy or tasty. The most common complaints from steady customers on our 100% grass fed beef were the meat was dry, did not contain enough fat and was sometimes tough or chewy. We have diligently been working for years to combat all these flaws with both genetics and feeding. We now have a product that is superior in taste, tenderness and eating ability to any supermarket meat, so called 100% grass fed beef or any other local beef in the area. 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 (accept for a few prize bulls we have purchased over the years to increase the genetics of our heard). 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. Even the so called “100% Grass fed beef” you pay 3 times the amount for. When you plant grass it is a seed\grain just like when a farmer plants a hay field he puts seeds in the ground. They are still eating grains no matter how you look at it. If it makes you happy you can pay us 3 times the price so you can feel like you really over paid for your beef thereby making it better and healthier :o)
So 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!
