Grass Fed Beef - J. Hutton is a fourth generation beef operation on the southeast side of the Cascade Mountains in Washington State. Joann started in the business at 6 years of age with her first calf, raised market steers for her 4-H project for 9 years and still has some of the same blood line in present herd.
The operation has been managed holistically for sustainability since 2000. The cattle are raised from gestation to harvest, for quality control of the product. The cattle are raised on rotational pastures (thus always going on mature, new pastures every 4 to 10 days) and fed hay during the winter months. The cattle are always treated with respect and love.
The cattle are Horned Herefords, with a few crossed with Shorthorn and Angus. Joann keeps only her own heifers for replacements and buys only, the bull. This way Joann knows the cattle have never been fed grains, given hormones or growth-promoting additives, pesticides, antibiotics, or any other drugs.
