About Tendergrass Farms

Sustaining Families

Who Are We?

The Tendergrass Farms vision was born from my own life experience. Having managed my family’s organic livestock farm, I knew firsthand both the value of our superior meats and the challenge of selling the entire animal. There were frequently certain organic meat cuts that we couldn’t even give away for free.

As a husband and father of three growing children, I also knew that organic meats were very expensive. Even in my own home, difficult decisions often had to be made between cost and quality. I recognized that we were not alone.

In 2011, we set out on a journey that would eventually bring resolution to this paradox. Today, Tendergrass Farms does one thing extraordinarily well: by utilizing the whole animal, we offer organic meat products at an astonishingly competitive cost.

Thank you for partnering with us in our vision of Sustaining Families™.
