The Upper Cumberland's source for
beef, pork, and lamb.
We bring premium, pasture-raised beef, pork, and lamb to the tables of the Upper Cumberland at great prices.
We are a meat wholesaler. This means we purchase our animals directly from our hand selected local farmer partners, who meet our rigorous standards of quality. We oversee the processing and packaging of the meat at a local USDA-inspected facility, and then we sell directly to you, the consumer. Simple Beef Company connects the farm directly to your table.
Truly Fresh and Delicious
By cutting out the traditional grocery store middle-man, we can offer premium, high quality meat products at a competitive price. It also means that our meat is truly fresh, going from the farm to your table in much less time than the meat at the grocery store. Who knows how long the products in a grocery store have been sitting there, losing flavor and nutrients?
Simple Beef Company is a win-win for everyone in the Upper Cumberland. Customers get premium, naturally raised meat at prices comparable to what they'd pay for commercially-raised meat at the grocery store. It's also great for our farmers and the local economy. Since we handle all the marketing, customer service, and distribution of the meat once it's packaged, our farmers can concentrate on what they do best--nurturing their animals and their land. Customers also know they are supporting their community by buying their meat locally.
At Simple Beef Company, were we’re picky about our partnerships.
We believe that the first step in trusting your food is knowing your farmer. That's why we build lasting relationships with experienced and ethical local farmers who are committed to bringing premium-quality, pasture raised beef and other naturally-raised meats, to the tables of the Upper Cumberland.
Our farmers are passionate about carrying on the time-honored traditional farming methods that have sustained the people and the land of Tennessee for generations. They only use responsible methods of raising products that are good for you, good for the animals, good for the land, and good for the local economy.
All our Black Angus cattle are raised on a thriving family farm located in the heart of Overton County where agricultural roots run deep. They’ve been nurturing their land and animals with care and commitment since 1945. They take pride in producing all-natural, pastured beef that is outstanding in taste and quality. The cattle are free to roam the green pastures, munching contentedly all day, every day, just the way nature intended.
Our pork farmer has been ranching and farming in the beautiful hills of Tennessee for over 35 years. His happy Berkshire Cross hogs forage at their leisure in the sunshine and fresh air, with plenty of lush green pasture in which to roam. It’s truly “hog heaven” down on this farm. The hogs are never confined in cages or indoors, wallowing in their own waste like commercial farming operations. He takes seriously his responsibility to produce the highest-quality, naturally-raised pork available in the Upper Cumberland.
Our lamb farmer is located near the Cookeville area. His sheep graze happily in a wide-open green pasture with plenty of room to frolic in the sun and fresh air. They are happy and healthy, eating and doing the things that sheep were made to do.
