what we do
Our cattle are raised on open pastures in Dover, Pennsylvania. They receive a strict diet of grass forages including perennial rye, wheat grass, red clover, white clover and fescue as they are continually rotated between pastures. Our animals are never in confinement, are never fed grain, and never given antibiotics, pesticides, growth hormones or genetically modified organisms (GMOs).
We allow our cattle more time and space to reach maturity. On average each animal has 1.5 acres of productive pasture and lives to 25 and 27 months of age before it is ready for harvest. This allows the end product to have developed much more intra muscular fat and therefore, greater flavor.
Market ready animals are processed by a small, local USDA inspected facility that takes great care in ensuring the same humane treatment the cattle were given throughout their life is continued through processing. Locust Point animals are processed separately and meat cuts are dry-aged for 21 days to maximize tenderness and flavor.
