In nature we trust.
Uwharrie Farm is a two generation family farm nestled in the rolling hills of the Piedmont Region of North Carolina. The Uwharrie Mountains overlook rolling pastures on our 120 acre farm. Committed to an environmentally friendly agriculture and safe food supply, our family has operated the farm since 1987.
We take food quality and stewardship
of the land seriously. Preservation
of farmland, food quality, air quality
and our environment are critical to
all of us. With this in mind we are
happy to share information that may
help others preserve the environment
and promote sustainable agriculture.
We have chosen to raise pastured
Jersey and Jersey cross cattle because
"Taste panels have consistently
rated meat from Jersey cattle as
being more acceptable due to
its greater tenderness, juiciness,
flavor and overall acceptability.
Jersey cross cattle have
monounsaturated fat concentrations
that are significantly higher than
other breeds. The interest in
monounsaturated fat level arises from
the fact that these fatty acids,
once seen as cholesterol
"neutral", are now considered
cholesterol "lowering" and are
preferable to high levels of
polyunsaturated fats." Facts reported
in - Beef Production from Jersey
Cattle, Massey University, 2001.
We have chosen heritage pork for their
superior eating quality (Available
Fall of 2017). Heritage breeds are
prized for juiciness, flavor and
tenderness. The meat is pink-hued and
