Meadow Creek Farm is a beautiful small family farm located in the Laurel Highlands, close Pittsburg and the surrounding area. Conviently located to camp grounds and ski resorts.
Purchased in 1936, we are a 4th generation farm dedicated to producing top quality Angus beef, homegrown pork and fresh farm eggs. A team of horses and a cook stove were replaced with the arrival of electricity in 1946. A old-fashioned barn raising was held in 1951 and a new dairy barn was built in just 3 days by 100 neighbors and friends.
The farm saw many changes over the years but the biggest change for our family was replacing our dairy herd with beef cattle in 2017. We now focus on raising Angus /Semintal beef, known for producing high quality beef with great flavor and tenderness.It is dry aged for 14 days in a USDA meat processing plant, cut, vacuum packed and frozen. We offer meat packages and freezer beef by the half or quarter or pick up your favorite cuts here at the farm.
Meadow Creek Farm has always been committed to raising quality animals in humane ways, without the use of antibiotics or growth hormones. Mommas and their babies are moved outside as soon as the weather permits in early spring. Even the youngest calves are hardy enough to tolerate an early spring snow. We rotate our pastures to insure a plentiful supply of quality grasses and provide free choice feeders of mineral supplements and supp!y high quality hay as needed. This produces cattle with slick shiny coats and fat playful calves.
Our steers are finished with a limited supply of ground grain raised here on the farm with lots of high quality hay. Cattle that are grain finished produce meat that is well marbled, tender and flavorful and high in healthy Omega 3 fatty acids. No hormones or antibiotics are ever used. We have raised our beef this way for over 70 years and it is a tried and true recipe for premium flavorful and tender beef
Our pigs are also fed with ground grains raised here on the farm. No growth hormones are needed to grow great pork. They also enjoy garden scraps, left over sweet corn, apples, but they are always looking for treats.
We have a wide variety of delicious sausages loose and linked ,pork chops and smoked ham and bacon. Fresh smoked ham can be pre-ordered.
Our meats are:
1. Processed by a USDA inspected meat processor.
2. Beef is dry aged (allowed to hang for 14-21 days) to enhance the flavor and tenderness of the meat.
3. They are cut and vacuum sealed and frozen to ensure the quality and flavor of the meat.
We have a wonderful butcher who processes our meat according to our or your instructions. The sausage is flavored just right and the hams and bacon are smoked and cured to perfection. They help our customers get their meat packaged to fit the needs off their family and they will also answer any questions you might have.
The USDA grades meat according to the amount of marbeling in the meat. Compare our steak to the one one the chart. The marbeling throughout the steak ensures a high quality, tender,and flavorful steak.
In 2009 we opened our farm store which is now located here on the farm. Our freezers are full of Angus beef, homegrown pork, naturally raised chicken and lamb.
