Long a producer of Black Angus breeding stock, Elmwood Stock Farm continues to sell breeding bulls to other area farms. Because the cows are bred and raised using organic standards by the Bell family at Elmwood Stock Farm, the genetics, bloodlines and background of each animal is known and available to any buyer wanting to upgrade a cattle herd. This experience and integrity in breeding is also available to customers desiring Choice grade, organic, 100-percent grass-fed beef for themselves and their families.

More About Elmwood Stock Farm’s Organic, Grass-Fed Beef Production
You might hear talk of grass-fed beef being overly lean. This isn’t the case with Elmwood Stock Farm’s beef, which has marbling throughout and is rated Choice in the US Department of Agriculture’s meat-grading system. We never feed grain—these cattle are carefully fed organic grass and hay that’s produced on the farm.
Elmwood Beef is Different
The 3 attributes that distinguish our beef are the following:
- We breed and raise our own cattle. The organic steers we choose for our meats are not purchased at cattle auctions or from others. We know the genetics and the background on all the meat products we sell. We only offer the best to our customers and are not pressured to bring inconsistent quality to the marketplace.
- Our cattle are raised year-round, outdoors on pasture. We don’t confine them to a feedlot, and they never, ever eat grain. Thanks to a carefully managed rotational-grazing program, we are able to offer you organic, 100% grass-fed beef that is graded Choice by the USDA meat-grading system.
- Our beef cattle are produced under a carefully planned and maintained process to meet USDA National Organic Program Standards. These standards involve our pastures, forages, healthcare, fencing and more. We had to meet the USDA organic-certification standards for three years before even receiving our certification, and we have maintained it since before 2000. An agent of USDA inspects us at least once annually, and we keep substantial records to document our practices, ensuring third-party verification of the integrity of our program.
We know of no other local product that meets all three of the attributes outlined above. The background behind our product combined with the experience and care of our production system ensures the best quality and most nutritious beef available.
From our own organic herd, we identify the cattle best suited for retail market. They are well fed with forage only—they receive no grains, ever. Our cattle are born here and are grazed through hundreds of acres of pastures for more than 400 days. We use a rotational-grazing system with portable fences that are moved often, opening up fresh pasture.
The pastures are seeded and weeds clipped, hay is mowed for winter feed, then raked, baled, and stored—all to maintain the optimum health of our livestock. It is more work for us, yet more rewarding for us all. Our soil produces top-quality forage that is well-balanced with needed minerals for the healthy growth of animals. This is the same reason that high-valued horses are raised in the Bluegrass area. Our cattle graze these pastures raised without the use of genetically modified seeds or synthetic chemical fertilizer or herbicides to develop the taste and nutritional quality of organic, grass-fed beef that we have become accustomed to.
Elmwood’s beef system is not designed to produce the greatest numbers possible, but rather produce a clean and wholesome product–great-tasting food with integrity.
Elmwood’s beef is processed under the supervision of USDA federal inspection to ensure our cleanness is maintained. A dry-aging process accentuates the full beef flavor and improves tenderness. We don’t allow injection of flavor enhancers, colored dyes or preservatives. We believe in practicing sustainable agriculture, where the forces of nature are cultured, not controlled. Our USDA certified-organic system requires no chemical additives and uses little fuel.
