Grass - Fed
About Us / Soul Shine Farms History: I farm 365 days a year to bring you the best, all natural, 100% grass fed, beyond organic, dry-aged, angus beef! I am not a middle-man! Each and every cow, calf, heifer, and steer is born and raised here by me from birth with love and care.I'm Leslie & I am the farmer behind Soul Shine Farms! I'm a graduate of the University of Virginia with a degree in Biology. I stayed in gorgeous Albemarle County following graduation managing farms and training horses for a living. I then worked for the UVA Health System in the Dept. of Internal Medicine gastroenterology laboratory researching Crohn's Disease and other inflammatory conditions. I moved to the beautiful Shenandoah Valley which boasts some of the richest farmland in the world & began honing my skills raising beef cattle & making my own hay. I initially followed the lead of all farmers in the area - raising young calves then selling to the commercial feedlot market at production age. My science background along with my strong interest in sustainability, environment, nutrition, & farm preservation prompted several years worth of research, trial & error, and implementation to find better practices & novel ways to get back to what made family farming work in the first place! The commercial beef industry has all but wiped out the heart of what helped build America - the family farm. In their quest to create the cheapest product in the least amount of time this machine has taken the quality & safety of American beef to the lowest it has ever been! Through all the highs & lows of farming & the 365 days a year of work through any and all weather conditions that fact has kept me more motivated than ever to provide a far superior product that is raised and grown the way nature intended - the way our human bodies were designed to process it and be nourished by it - the way my forefathers did it - when people ate to live active physically demanding lives, largely free of the majority of the diseases we are afflicted with today.
