Welcome To Our Farm!
We’re Timothy and Julie Beahm and our family of six seeks to work together living, learning, farming, and helping to bring healthy meat to local families again.
In the beautiful mountains of Rappahannock County, we raise Grassfed Beef and Pastured Pork. We believe in simple living and simple farming practices. The best food starts with the best farming practices. We desire to honor the Creator, the animals, and the land by the way we raise them.
If you are looking to take steps towards good health by eating pastured and grassfed meat and buying local, then read on!
What truly matters
Where we get our food is important to our family.
Many people have come to us for meat for various reasons:
-Starting on their health journey. They need clean food (by that we mean free of hormones, antibiotics, preservatives, and chemicals.)
-Ethical reasons. They like to know that the animals are raised in a natural environment that is best for them.
-The local connection. Some people just really want to get their food from an actual, real person that they can talk to, ask questions, get cooking advice- all the advantages that you don’t get with the big companies selling food at the grocery store.
Your health goals accomplished
Most of us have some goals in mind for better health. You may have heard that grassfed beef is higher in omega 3’s, or that pastured pork is more flavorful due to their varied diet without all the added preservatives and junk in the finished meat. You may be trying to eat healthier and desire to have a cleaner food source coming into your home. We get that! That’s why we love doing what we do, even on all the hard days when we take care of animals in the rain, wind, snow, and dead heat of summer!
We believe so strongly that the key to better health should begin with the very fuel we are feeding our bodies. Even though we are grateful for medical intervention and medicines when needed, it’s crucial to begin working from the inside out to help start on the path to a healthier you.

Choose the best size share for your family’s needs
We have multiple options for both beef and pork (and chicken options soon) that can meet any family’s needs and help bring healthy meals again to your table. ½ shares of beef and pork are the most economical and can last some families a whole year. We offer 30, 60, and 90 lb. shares of beef or pork as well. The small 30 lb shares can easily fit in most refrigerator freezers.
