What We Believe
Dierks Farms was founded on the basis of Grass-fed and Grass-finished beef even before the health benefits were brought to light. Today, we believe in Grass-Fed and Grass-Finished because it benefits our family, our animals, our customers and our environment. Our farming practices are centered around the humane treatment of our animals. Our animals are raised on stress free grass that is rotated on a regular basis both for the animals and the environment. Our cattle is never given antibiotics or steroids and never fed grain. Our grass fed beef is all natural as God intended it to be. Our family farm has a close relationship with the soil and water conservation service and has received Soil and Water Farm Family of the Year. This proves that our environmental farming spans all throughout our farming practices. Don't just take our word for it, try our meat for yourself. You'll love the taste and your body will love the healthy benefits.
