About Our Farm
For nearly a century, Mills Farm has produced agricultural commodities such as tobacco, corn, soybeans, wheat, pork, and beef. Located in Tuckahoe Township, Jones County, North Carolina, we at Mills Farm take great pride in our history and look forward to writing our future.
Since our beginning in the 1920s, cattle have been a source of food and income for our families. Over the years, our cows have also been a source of joy, relaxation, and inspiration to us as well. These animals have trotted their way into our everyday lives, and have found a permanent place in our hearts.
The health and well-being of our animals is our number one priority. The diet of the cattle on our farm is essential to the outcome of our beef product, which is why we care about it so much. At Mills Farm, cows and calves have many feed options to choose from, including daily options of pasteurized grasses, dry and silage hay, and corn silage. The food is always available around the pasture, with the freedom to roam as nature intended. Although all of the feed is excellent and palatable for the cows, corn silage is by far their favorite to eat, which is an extraordinary thing because corn silage is the most significant portion of our steers' and heifers' diets. Our herd is pasture-raised and grain finished, which speaks volumes about their nutrition and overall health.
From veterinary scheduled vaccinations to timely calf weanings, we strive to make the best possible decisions for our herd. We guarantee that our cows are watched over daily to ensure they never have a lack of the essential elements they need to be as healthy as possible.
Here at Mills Farm, we take lots of pride in our cattle husbandry. On our farm, genetics (especially bull genetics) is essential. We use data provided by the American Angus Association when choosing the Black Angus bulls for our herd. Black Angus bulls are known for producing superior marbling in beef. The more marbling the meat has, the better the flavor.
When you factor in our genetics, diet, husbandry, and our dry- aged process you get a product that we believe is surpassed by no other. It is with great pride that we offer to your family an opportunity to partner with ours in bringing you top of the line farm raised beef.
