Delmar Farm is a third generation small family farm located in Eastern North Carolina, near the Virgina border. Our Goal is to produce the highest quality grass fed beef while caring for our animals humanely and with compassion. Our cattle are raised here on the farm in a stress free environment and are never administered hormone implants. The beef from animals raised entirely on their natural diet of grass has much less fat, 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 grain-fed beef. A good source of beta-carotene, vitamin E, genetically low in cholesterol and more nutritious high in protein. Our calves are grass fed and finished on high quality forage with supplemental feeding of cotton seed, soybean, and peanut hulls.
Delmar Farm also uses a fodder feeding system developed by Fodder Soulutions. The system is a hydroponic growing room that has been specifically developed to sprout grain and legume seeds for highly nutritious yet cost effective livestock feed. Feed quality barley germinates within 24 hours of seeding. The barley grows in the same tray for 6-days and is ready for harvest as a 6 to 8in high grass mat.
Animals are available for purchased based on the live weight, Customer pays for processing at the dress weight. Animals will be delivered to the USDA processor for custom processing and dry aged 14-21 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. We are members of P.A.U.S. and you can learn more about Peidmontese Cattle at The Piedmontese Association of the United States web site. http://pauscattle.org
