OUR GROWERS AND PRODUCERS
Rocking Chair Ranch Cattle
Rocking Chair Ranch is committed to delivering locally-grown, grassfed beef to the Middle Georgia area. Our pasture-raised livestock are free of growth hormones and antibiotics to provide you with a healthier alternative to regular beef.
No feedlots. No carbohydrate-rich corn. No antibiotics. No hormones. RCR cattle are raised the natural way — mother's milk and pasture grass. Studies have shown that this is better for humans, better for the animals, and better for the environment. While grass-fed animals mature more slowly than animals fattened in commercial feedlots, they are less prone to the diseases afflicting animals packed into close quarters in confined animal feeding operations. At Rocking Chair Ranch, we are committed to humane animal care practices and we believe that the animals are entitled to low-stress lives. Rocking chair ranch cattle is an Animal Welfare Approved farm and a member of the American Grassfed Association.
Anne Marie Watson, long-time team member, found she had some extra time on her hands in March 2012 after the tragic fire shut Grits Café down, so she set out to get to work. She dug up and planted a 9,000 square foot garden, and started growing produce. Her first year was a roaring success, so she continued on in 2013, growing enough fruits and vegetables to fuel a large portion of Grits Café's produce needs to feed their guests. Most is produced organically, and heirloom seeds used whenever available.
