What's here: (Click for recipes) Beef
We are a beef cattle farm located in Flat Creek, Tennessee a small unincorporated community right outside of Lynchburg, Tennessee. Farrar Farm was established in 1851 by our great-great grandfather, James Frankin Farrar and has been in continuous operation since. Farrar Farm is currently operated by the 5th generation of Farrars -- Jeff and Mark.

We market fresh farm-raised beef at the Murfreesboro Farmer's Market on the Square, the Stones River Market, and through our facebook page. Our cattle will spend their entire lives in a pasture (and not crammed in a feedlot) and are primarily grass fed. What sets us apart is that we add the additional (and, at least if you are a cow, delicious) supplemental feed of spent mash from the local distilleries. The outcome is tastier, more tender beef, happier and healthier cows, and a better environment.

We're not doing this to get rich (really, I don't know many farmers that are in it for the money). Rather, our sole motivation is to purchase and preserve a farm that has been in our family for five generations. If we are fortunate enough to have any money left over, it will be donated directly to causes that feed and care for those in need.

We do our best to keep this guide accurate, but farming is a dynamic occupation, things change fast. It is a good idea to call and verify any of the information in this guide before you plan a trip to a farm. Also, please be considerate. The farms in this guide are working farms as well as residences in many cases. If you think of yourself more as a valued guest than a customer you'll have a great experience.
