The Sanders Farm is located in the foothills of Clinch Mountain in upper east Tennessee, close to neighboring Kentucky, Virginia and North Carolina. We have tended a small cow/calf herd at our family farm since 1976. We have kept our pasture and hayfields herbicide and pesticide-free for over 30 years. We use no antibiotics, pesticides or growth stimulants of any kind on any animal to be sold. Flies are kept under control with a walk-through fly trap. The calves I am selling eat only our own pasture and hay and mother's milk. They are always free-ranging with their mothers and the rest of the closed herd until the day they are processed.
I prefer to sell my calves whole in the late Spring or Fall. Hanging weight is around 300 pounds and take-home meat averages 200 pounds. I deliver your calf to a local butcher and you pick up your frozen meat there. You decide how long you want your meat aged and how you want it cut and packaged. My price is $2.50 per pound of hanging weight and the butcher charges around $.40 per pound based on hanging weight.
I also at times have milk and grass-finished beef by the package. It is USDA inspected and weighed, vacuum-packed and frozen. I will email you a price list. Pickup for this meat would be in the Rogersville, TN area.
We would rather sell our beef calves to individuals who want untainted beef than into the feedlot industry where they live a little longer but in an unnatural and highly stressful way.
