About our Beef:
Our beef is homegrown and Holmes-raised in Perry County, Alabama. Deep in the Black Belt these cattle graze on forages on some of the richest soil in the Southeast. They are given no growth hormones or antibiotics. We have them processed and packaged one at a time so the meat you get comes from one source.
Our farm has been in the same family since it was homesteaded in 1819 by William Moore. Going into the 1940s, J.C. and Charlie Webb started making a name for themselves in the cattle business as the Webb Brothers. In 1972, Charles Holmes came back from Auburn University to apprentice under his two uncles, J.C. and Charlie. Charles’ two youngest sons, Webb and Cooper, followed his footsteps and are now six-generation farmers working the same land that has been passed down to them for almost 200 years.
