We believe knowing where your food comes from is important and building a trusting relationship with our customers. We invite you to visit our farm, meet our people and get to know our values about food and the land.
Healthier, More Nutritious
Grass-fed vs grain fed products are significantly higher in nutrients and minerals, including beta-carotene, vitamin E, vitamin D, B vitamins, calcium, magnesium, and potassium. Grass fed beef also contains 2 - 4X more Omega-3s and 5x more CLA and is lower in fat and cholesterol.
Carbon Credit Farming
We are actually grass farmers. Growing as much grass, forest, and plants at the highest quality we can. This involves making sure the soil is healthy & abundant with microbial life. We grow acres upon acres of carbon sequestering greenery. Our cows then manicure it for us and you get healthy, nutrient dense, beef.
Bulk Beef: A great cost effective way to have nutritious beef available is to purchase by whole, half, or quarter animal quantities. A deposit is required prior to processing the animal for your order
Our Cows: We specialize in Red Devon cows and are breeding in heat tolerance with some other breeds. Red Devons are an ancient breed of cattle from southern England’s Devon County, prized for its docility and tender gourmet beef. They are hardy, thrifty cattle that do well on grass, without grain supplements. Our cattle are raised in Randolph County without any hormones or antibiotics, resulting in unsurpassed taste and tenderness.
Processing: We are lucky enough to live in a region where there are several smaller quality USDA or NC State certified processors. Our animals are processed per our direction and each cut comes labeled and individually vacuum packed and frozen.
Delivery: We may have what you want in stock or we can let you know timing of availability. Depending on your location we may be able to deliver, meet you, or you can pick it up at the farm.

WHY WE DO WHAT WE DO
OUR PASTURED PORK
Our pigs grow in our woods letting the pigs be pigs. They root, wallow, and run around. Their feed consists of non-GMO grains grown in North Carolina. In addition, their paddocks in the woods provides them forbs, grass, and legumes that grow in our woods. We believe healthy soils will make healthy pigs that will make healthy pork. Our pork is raised without added growth hormones or antibiotics. Our pastures and woods are maintained without herbicides or pesticides. Help support local, regenerative and sustainable farming in the Piedmont of North Carolina.

Chef Deanna, The Table
My visit to Back To Earth Farm was the highlight of my culinary career. I knew I loved working with their product. During the visit I was able to see and feel first hand the passion and care that they give to the animals and the land. It gives me a great feeling knowing I can share the highest quality of food with my customers!
The ground meat we purchased was amazing, Just needs a little salt and pepper and it is delicious! We even took some to our friends so they could experience how amazing it was!
We visited the farm and it is quite beautiful and Janice gave us a great tour too!

Tom Henslee is raising New Zealand Red Devon cows, one of our favorite breeds, the right way. This is immediately apparent in the quality of the meat that comes from his cows.
