Our two WhyNot Farm locations in North Carolina and Tennessee raise & breed Red Devon grass fed cattle. Red Devon is a heritage breed brought to America in 1623 by the pilgrims from Devonshire, England. Nancy and Bill Walker, in cooperation with two several other Devon breeders, are importing embryos from the United Kingdom to broaden the traditional genetic base of the Devon breed in America by utilizing genetics that have been in England for over 2000 years.
For the meat market, we have steers that exhibit excellent marbling and are raised to about 1100 pounds before slaughter. Our cattle are grass-fed, grass-finished, and receive no animal products or GMOs, nor is any hormone therapy administered. We practice rotational grazing where animals are moved to new sections of pasture on a regular basis.
