As the owners and husband-and-wife team, we (Ben and Kellie Deen) make it our top priority to maintain an Animal Welfare Approved farm. Ben is a fifth generation Georgia farmer and learned all about raising animals in the caring, humane environment they deserve which in turn also leads to healthier, higher quality products. We have four children and our son, Benjamin, has helped us for over ten years; his wife, Ashley, has been part of the family business for over two. We’ve been married for 25 years and are proud to be Southern farmers.
We love our careers because people at the farmer’s markets and co-ops that we service are so appreciative of what we put into farming and are also really into healthy cooking which starts with our natural pastured meats. Their support makes any struggles worth it. And we wouldn’t trade living in Sylvania, Georgia for anything. It’s like the old cowboy days where everyone helps each other and shares with one another; the neighboring farmers are also our friends.
We can provide custom cuts and take requests as we do all our own butchering and use zero hormones or antibiotics. Our animals are raised from birth to processing on-site and have plenty of room to thrive and follow their natural instincts. We’re also members of the following organizations and adhere to their Standards and Practices Guidelines:
