Hoven Farms- Split Half - Deposit

Hoven Farms use regenerative farming methods on our land to build up and rejuvenate our soils, raise healthy animals and grow better food for human beings.

We believe that grass-finished beef is amazing food and an amazing tool that is the only solution for solving climate change and desertification.  We have had scientists and filmmakers on our land looking, exploring what we do, and testing our soils.

Our Split Half Beef is grass-fed, grass-finished, and certified organic.
