Foothills Pasture-Raised Meats are produced by the McKissick family in Old Fort, NC. Foothills serves retail and wholesale customers throughout Western North Carolina. Formerly known as Foothills Family Farms, our business model has evolved to better meet the needs of our loyal customers and the demand for good, clean meat. Since 2005, we have insisted on producing food in harmony with nature by using sustainable production practices. We choose not to be certified Organic by the USDA but adhere to our own strict production practices which benefit the environment, the animals and the consumer. There are never any added hormones or routine antibiotics used in our meats, nor do we use by-products, artificial flavor enhancers, or fillers in our specialty sausage or other products. Our meats are processed and packaged at a small, family owned USDA butcher shop in nearby Rutherford County. We maintain a great relationship with our butchers to ensure our animals and meat products are treated as well at their shop as they are on our farm. Our beef and pork are finished with a "free choice" ration of certifed organic barley and corn grown by neighboring farmers right down the road . The barley is reclaimed as spent brewer's grain from Pisgah Brewery in Black Mountain. All of our animals are raised on pasture with constant access to forages, clean air and sunshine.
We believe our loyal customers are the best "certification" a farmer can have!
