Before Down Home Processing opened for business, Chris England had owned and worked on his farm for about 25 years. Today, Down Home Farms’ main priority is raising beef and hogs to provide fresh, locally grown meat to the people of East Tennessee. All of the corn and hay that is fed to our animals has been grown on our family owned farm.
Down Home Beef
We currently have a herd of about 75(and growing) Black Angus Cattle. When they are born, the cows spend their days freely roaming our farm and feeding on our locally grown corn, hay, and grass. Our entire herd is 100% free of hormones & antibiotics. While our preference is to grain finish our beef for 90-120 days before slaughter, we do have some completely grass-fed cattle. We are extremely proud to say that from the time they are born until they are ready for you to eat, our Black Angus Beef never has to leave our family farm.
Down Home Pork
While beef is the majority of what we do, we definitely have not forgotten about the pork. Just like our cattle, our pigs are born, fed
from our crops, & processed right here on our farm.
Buying from Down Home Farms
We have sets of cattle and pigs that are ready for processing at various times throughout the year. Since we both raise and process the animals, Down Home Processing & Farms can offer much more convenience than others. If you are interested in purchasing a whole, half, or quarter of an animal all you have to do is give us a call. We will choose an animal closest to what you are looking for, schedule it for slaughter, and then process it to your specifications. This process could not be easier for you. With a few phone calls, one trip to our office, and only one overall check, you can have your freezer full with all the beef and pork you need. Also unlike most others, when buying from us, we charge based on the freezer weight of the animal, which is the amount of meat that actually gets packed into your freezer! If you have questions regarding pricing or any other questions about our farm feel free to contact us!
