Delmar Farm is operated and owned by Tony Francis a grandson of James and Pearl Francis. This farm has continued ownership in this family well over 100 years, located in rural eastern North Carolina, between the towns of Enfield and Halifax. Our Goal is to produce the highest quality beef while caring for our animals humanely and with compassion. Our cattle are a Angus and Piedmontese cross raised here on the farm in a stress free environment and are never administered hormone implants. Our animals are raised mostly on their natural diet of grass which has much less fat and supplemented with some grain mix which is good for our hearts and our waistlines. Grass fed beef is higher in CLA (conjugated linoleic acid) and omega -3 fatty acids (better for you) than all grain-fed beef. A good source of beta-carotene, vitamin E, genetically low in cholesterol and more nutritious high in protein. Our weaned calves are finished on high quality forage with a supplemental feeding of cotton by-products , soybeans, hulls and meal. We also actively manage our forest land and grow Soybeans and Hay.
We are also growing Heirloom Tomatoes, Eggplants, Squash, Bell Peppers, Hot Peppers, and cucumbers in a seasonal hi-tunnel
using drip irrigation.
Cattle are available for purchased based on their live weight, Customer pays for processing , Animals will be delivered to the processor for custom processing and dry aged 21 days and vacum sealed.
We recently acquired registered Piedmontese cattle and will be incorporating their genetics in our commerical herd as well as producing Piedmontese seed stock for purchase.
