Walker Century Farms are located in northern Anderson County, SC. We raise and sell purebred Red Devon cattle and processed beef and pork. Our breeding program uses older traditional genetics primarily focused around Noyl Boy M78. Our program will soon include traditional genetics from semen and embryos imported from England.
For the meat market, we have steers that exhibit excellent marbling and are raised to about 1100 pounds before slaughter. Our cattle are 100% grass-fed and grass-finished, and receive no animal products or GMOs, nor is any hormone therapy administered. We market our beef as individual cuts, vacuum-packed and frozen or one-pound ground beef packages.
We are using Tamworth, Mulefoot, and Gloucester Old Spot breeds to produce crosses that have excellent flavor and tenderness. Our pigs are allowed to roam freely in the forest and fields. They are given supplemental feed, but not antibiotics or hormones. We market our pork locally frozen and vacuum-packed as individual cuts or one-pound packs of sausage.
Although not certified organic, sustainable and organic practices are utilized.Our pastures are managed with organic fertilizers and no hay is cut from the fields. Rotational grazing is practiced where the cattle move to a new section of pasture resulting in a more efficient grazing and better use of the land.Each section is allowed to grow new grass before being grazed again.
Walker Century Farms is committed to producing healthy, tasteful meat in a sustainable manner. The benefits of grassfed beef include 2-4 times more omega-3 fatty acids, higher CLA amounts, and higher vitamin E content than conventional grain fed beef.
