Creek Bend Farm is a 230-acre family farm in the rolling hills of Dekalb County Tennessee. We raise USDA-certified, 100% grass-fed beef, pastured pork, pastured chicken and free-range eggs. We are not certified organic, but believe strongly in utilizing the most sustainable practices and strive to operate above and beyond organic standards.
In addition to open access to fresh pasture, our pigs and chickens receive organic or non-GMO feed whenever possible. Our happy cows spend 100% of their lives on pasture. Our goals as farmers and stewards of the land are to produce healthy food for the community. We achieve this through a specific type of grazing called Management Intensive Grazing or Rotational Grazing. This means we are moving our livestock every 1–3 days so that the animals have fresh grass, and also to give the land time to rest and recover. This style of grazing over time produces deeper, richer soil, healthier grass and cleaner streams. All of our practices are shaped by the goal of improving the health of the land, the animals, and our community.
Our products are available at the Hip Donelson and the Dekalb Farmers Markets, direct from the farm, or by arrangement at various Nashville locations. We sell individual cuts of meat or offer a CSA, which is a 20–22 lb monthly share of beef, pork and chicken. Additional information and our price list is available on our website.
We have a yurt and cabin available as a guesthouse for families and couples wishing to experience farm life and learn about sustainable farming practices. We love giving farm tours and sharing the beauty of our land and animals with others.
