Welcome to the farm.
At Fort Creek Farm,
Our grass fed Hereford cattle are raised on fresh nutritious grass on our family farm, without supplemental feeding of grain, hormones or routine antibiotics. Grass finished beef is low in fat, calories, LDL cholesterol, and E. coli risk. It is high in omega-3 fatty acids, CLA, beta-carotene, and vitamins A and E.
In addition to healthy beef, we raise hormone and anti-biotic free chicken and goat meat as well as fresh eggs. All of our meats and eggs are sold in meal sized packages and are available for purchase today.
Prices and availablity are seasonal and subject to change. Check our seasonal price list to see what we are selling at local farmers markets or contact us by email for further information about whole, half and split half orders.

Old Time cattle + Modern Ideas
Susan's great-grandfather began raising cattle here in the 1840's and our herd dates at least to the 1940's when her daddy began managing his personal herd of Hereford cattle, a breed originally imported from England in 1817 by the statesman Henry Clay. Over the years Susan's daddy resisted market pressures to breed ever larger cattle, staying true to his original small frame stock. Why is this important? We believe the "old time" genetics in our cattle is one reason they perform so well on grass and provide such superior taste.
When we inherited the herd in the late 1990's we realized that we had something very special that should be shared with people who care about eating healthy food. So in 2000 we decided to leave our city life and devote our full time to our twin passions of historic preservation and raising health giving foods. With Bob's Ph.D. and career experience in Environmental Science and Susan's B.S. in Animal Behavior it just seemed like the NATURAL thing to do.
During school breaks you will find our granddaughters here running the pastured egg business, taking care of baby goats, or bottle feeding a baby calf. We are having a great time doing what we love with people we love. We hope we can share the experience with you.
