About Us / Swift Level History: "Thoughtfully and organically grass-fed in the mountain valleys of West Virginia"Family farming in Southern WV since 1843.*Swift Level guarantees a thoughtful and knowledgeable animal husbandry practice, humane and respectful treatment and an organic life supported by a sustainable, agrarian lifestyle, free of antibiotics and hormone implants. Swift Level is chemical, pesticide and herbicide-free, which means our animals are too!Our steers grow as nature intended and are never pushed to meet market criteria, in fact, they never go to market and we never feed any grain. These steers live and move about freely on rich native grasses in large pastures and have unlimited access to fresh limestone spring water. We believe that hills, movement and normal activity support healthy animals with bodies that are strong, organs that are clean and working and cattle that seem to be quite content. When moved, we do so quietly and gently on foot and by horseback in this mountain valley as we have done so for generations.We guarantee that our steers are not harassed, electric-prodded or stressed in any unnecessary manner. If they are stressed, we wait a day and let things settle. Our slaughter is Animal Welfare Approved and takes place at a small, family owned facility that is USDA inspected. We work very closely with this family and with the processing of each steer. Our beef dry hangs for a minimum of 30 days and is USDA and E. Coli inspected. Each steer is individually and carefully processed and has no contact with any other meat. The life of the steer is tracked to the individual package of meat providing assurance that the entire history of the meat you are eating is documented.We support: Slow Food, Eat Wild, Lewisburg and Monroe Farm Markets, WV Buy Fresh Buy Local, Local Harvest, Slow Money and Farm Forward.
