About Us
Nestled in the Appalachian mountains of central Pennsylvania, Thistle Creek Farms has been producing high-quality grass-fed beef for more than 25 years. Our cattle are born and raised on the rolling hills of the Appalachian Mountains. We're passionate about sustainable agriculture, constantly working to build soil health. We have not used chemical fertilizers or insecticides on our pastures in decades. Our grassland is teeming with soil microbes and earthworms that are missing in fields that have heavy chemical applications. We plant grasses with root structures that reach deep into the soils ( as much as 11 feet) to bring up minerals that have been locked below plow pan soils for years. Raising cattle with extremely low use of fuels and equipment has been a management goal from the inception of our grass-fed operation here at Thistle Creek Farms. Our cattle are never confined, they harvest their own feed nearly every day of the year, and fertilize the grasses as they move on to new pasture.
Practices
Our main goal is to raise grass-fed beef on the best grasses from around the world. Our grasses come from The Czech Republic, Denmark, Ireland, New Zealand, and Romania. They provide a great tasting product as well as the health benefits of beef raised on grass.

We got into sustainable agriculture even before it became a popular way of caring for the land and environment. We turn more and more cropland back to grass every year. Our soils are teaming with the micro-organisms that nature intended. For more than three decades we have not used insecticides, chemical fertilizers or GMOs.
