About Us

Autumn Grove Farm is a 150 acre farm located in Farmville, Virginia. It was established in January 2000 with quality and humane principles in mind. We operate a clean facility and the health & quality of our animals, live and dressed, is a top priority. We want to provide the consumer (to best of our ability) a quality product. We sell the quality we want for our own family. We are not perfect, but we certainly try very hard to be conscientious and humane farmers.

We specialize primarily in beef and turkey (click the link above for details). We currently raise Bourbon Red Heritage turkeys. These birds have excellent reviews from many chefs and are considered tasty and hardy. The difference between store bought and a pasture raised heritage Bourbon Red is amazing. Gravy is now only optional at the Thanksgiving table. This turkey has taste -- great moist taste with a hint of natural sweetness.

All beef is USDA processed. Quarter, half, and whole cow quantities are still offered and individual one pound ground beef packs. The ground beef sold by Autumn Grove Farm is processed from one cow; we do not support mixing beef. The majority of ground beef sold in supermarkets (organic and non-organic) comes from a ground beef coop pool and up to 1,000 commercially raised cows contribute to a 1 lb. pack of ground beef. Rather than average out the inferior quality meat, we only sell top quality beef from one source -- one cow. We prefer a more selective approach and feel single cow processing greatly enhances the quality control over the beef offered.

The cattle, turkeys, and chickens free range following a pasture rotation schedule and live in a very clean, peaceful and tranquil environment without stress. We take pride in the living conditions of all the animals and welcome you to visit the farm and see the source of your food from farm directly to your table. We believe strongly in supporting local farmers and locally grown food and believe we supply a superior product. We are not organic certified and do not plan to do so, we feel our operation is even better. The term "organic" has been so watered down, in our opinion at Autumn Grove Farm, and offers somewhat of a false sense of security to those seeking quality food for their families. We encourage everyone to research and education themselves on the guidelines of the "organic" food label and industry foods. While we applaud anyone who is trying to improve the quality of the food they offer, "organic" beef or turkeys can and are still raised without true pasture living. They can be cage-confined the majority of their life without access to clean air, sunshine (vitamin D), exercise, a natural diet of grass, insects & bugs, and the opportunity to be the wonderful animals they are.
