Swift Level practices managed intensive grazing methods constantly striving towards soil, forage improvement, land use conservation and does NOT apply any "non organic" (chemical) matter to the land or water. 2014 Greenbrier Valley Conservation District Farm of the Year. 2014 2nd place WV Conservation Farm. Our beef is Certified Greenbrier Valley Grown, not fed any grains, additives, hormones. The steers diet consists of pasture grasses and hay, organic kelp and drink clean spring water. Swift Level Steers are allowed to grow and gain weight naturally and I select them for slaughter when I feel their carcass is mature and ready. They are taken to a small, family owned USDA facility in VA where the beef dry hangs for a minimum of 40 days, providing a wonderful, traditional aging process that speaks for itself with flavor. We strive to produce a 0 carbon footprint, to improve the environment and to maintain quality and consistency of a premium beef product.
