Rock House is a diverse farm that utilizes the land in a variety of ways. Rock House raises commercial and specialty crops, grass-fed cattle and heritage hogs.
Rock House Farm was established in 2005 with the purchase of the original 1,750 acres from the Lee family of Lee County, Georgia. Over the next 10 years other adjoining farms were purchased and the farm now comprises more than 4,000 acres.
“Perfection is a road, not a destination.” And we’re on the path. We know that all good things come with time. Our methods are tried and tested, and we do things the long way, the right way – and the proof is in the flavor. We invite you to taste the difference.
Grits and Cornmeal
Our two varieties of heirloom corn give Rock House Farm’s grits and cornmeal an exceptional flavor. With our very own grist mill, we are able to provide Hickory King grits and cornmeal and Bloody Butcher cornmeal.
Local Grassfed Beef
The cattle operation includes a cow-calf component as well as a finishing operation for producing grass-fed and grass-finished beef. The cattle are a heritage breed, Devon, crossed with Angus. We use irrigation to grow high-quality forage on a year-round basis, which translates into tender, flavorful beef being produced throughout the year. University of Georgia forage specialists helped us select proper forages to finish top-quality animals.
The heritage hog operation entails breeding registered Berkshire hogs and then raising and finishing the offspring from that registered stock. The hogs are raised in an open environment that combines woods and pasture. Berkshire hogs produce a higher quality pork with a darker color and greater marbling for optimum tenderness, juiciness, and flavor.
