We move our cows onto fresh pasture daily. We use temporary electric fences to control their access to a field and stockpile pasture for winter grazing. We have spring water piped throughout the property so they always have clean fresh drinking water. We don’t use antibiotics or spray our fields with any chemicals. We have options for Grass Finished Beef or beef finished on Organic Feed if you don’t prefer straight grass-finished beef. We sell beef by the whole or half share based on current grass-fed beef market prices published by the USDA in the National Grass Fed Beef Report.

So on average a half beef share is going to run around $1,400 – $1,900 and a whole beef share will be $2,800 – $3,800, depending on which finishing option you choose and the size of the animal.

Living Springs Farm is a family-owned and operated farm located in Middle Tennessee on the edge of the Cumberland Plateau. We raise Non-GMO Grass-Fed Beef along with Alapaha Blue Blood Bulldogs on our farm. We breed a composite breed of cattle consisting of Angus, Herford, Gelbvieh, and Brahma because they are healthier than pure Angus and are naturally resistant to E. coli and Salmonella. We strive to raise healthy high quality grass fed beef.
“It is written: ‘Man shall not live on bread alone, but on every word that comes from the mouth of God.’” Matthew 4:4
On our farm both options are grass fed on pasture unconfined through the entire process. In fact all cattle can be called grass fed if they were ever in a pasture or fed hay. The reality is grass fed is more nutritious if it is on grass until it is processed. This is why we use the rotational grazing techniques we do, to keep the cattle on the freshest pasture possible throughout the entire process. But there is an inconvenience to grass finished. That is that you lose the marbling of a well finished steak that gives it the juicy sweet flavor we have all come to love. This is where our organic grain finished grass fed beef stands out. You get the best of both worlds. The cattle are still eating grass unconfined on pasture through the whole process but are also fed a healthy organic ration custom produced just for us that takes them to the next level. But we like to give you options that’s why we still offer 100% Grass Finished Beef even though we don’t prefer it on our dinner table.
