We raise American Milking Devon crosses. Devons are a heritage dual-purpose breed for high quality beef and milk and can be raised efficiently on grass alone. While our beef is not “certified” organic we can tell you that the grasses and hay that they eat are organic and there were no antibiotics or growth hormones used in raising these animals. Our beef is sold by the quarter, half, or whole. We also have our beef made into hard salami by Smith’s Smoke House in Monroe.
We are still taking orders for 2017

History Of The American Milking Devon
The Milking Devon is originally derived from British North Devon cattle brought to North America in the 17th century. The breed has since diverged significantly, and is often called the American Milking Devon to differentiate it from its British cousin. Modern North Devons have been bred to be used almost exclusively for beef production, while Milking Devons are a multi-purpose animal akin to the stock which first took the transatlantic journey. Despite their name, they are also suited to meat production and to work as draft animals (i.e. oxen). Considered to be one of the oldest and purest breeds of American cattle in existence, Milking Devons are also exceedingly rare.
