The Ohio River Valley in Brown County, Ohio is comprised of rolling hills and hollars that were first settled in the early 1800's. Brown County is considered a rural county, with a population of about 45,000 as of 2010. However, the county is experiencing exponential growth due to urban sprawl. This has led to a vast decline of family farms - especially seen in the past 25 years. When the family farms diminish, so do their traditions, their values, and the connections between the farmers and their consumers. By creating this direct local relationship with our consumers, we hope to reconnect with them in a way that rebuilds the trust and confidence that consumers used to have in their food supply. Our methods of raising cattle are a part of our heritiage, as well as the heritage that many of us share.
