The Family

Pasture raised beef, pork and specialty cured meats.

Foothills Pasture Raised Meats is owned and operated by Meredith and Casey McKissick, with help from their young sons, Cash and Tucker.

Our farm is located on approximately 65 acres in the beautiful Crooked Creek area of Old Fort, NC.  Our meats are raised without added hormones or routine antibiotics on a rotational forage based system that benefit the environment, the animals and our customers. We finish our beef on certified organic spent brewers grains from Pisgah Brewing Company in Black Mountain, NC and our pork on a combination  whole grain feed and brewers grain.

In an exciting expansion, we're opening a retail butcher shop in 2013 that will showcase our meat products, as well as meats from other local farmers. We'll have weekly specials both fresh and cooked, and will specialize in whole animal butchery. Expect to try some new things, and have more consistent access to your favorite meat products! In addition to meats, we'll sell North Carolina grass-fed milk, buttermilk, butter, cheese, and yogurt. Stop into the shop at 1196B Old US Hwy 70 in Black Mountain NC (28711). We're right across the street from Dynamite Roasting Company. Hours: Wednesday-Friday 11a-7p, Saturday 10a-6p, and Sunday 12p-4p.

Our meat business was established in 2005 and we've spent over 11 years vending at local tailgate markets.  We firmly believe that small farms working closely with other local businesses is the critical to sustainable development and a strong economy. Contact us at
