Providing quality food to the community runs in the family. During the Great Depression our grandparents started a butcher shop and grocery store. Beef shortages during the war prompted them to begin raising their own cattle. Working with other local farmers they made a commitment to ensure the meat they were providing their customers was truly beef and not a substitute.
In 2004, we began rebuilding our family farm, returning to our family tradition of providing quality food to our community. As a family we have long enjoyed the rolling hills of our farm, rich with dogwood trees, and so Dogwood Hills Cattle Company got it’s name. Today we thrive and grow, working the farm as a family, and at the end of the day we find the same values that make us a successful family are also the values that make a successful business: honor, dignity, kindness and charity.
In an age of mass industrialized agriculture, beef isn’t in short supply; cattle raised on a natural diet free of antibiotics, hormones, growth stimulants and animal byproducts are. It’s our mission to provide quality, naturally raised, dry aged beef to those who, because of geography, may not have local access to responsibly-raised beef and the health and taste benefits that come with it.
