Sutton Farms is a multi-generational family farm, founded in 1902, focused on raising quality beef for our customers. Our cattle are 100% grass-fed and are hormone and antibiotic-free on our farm in Butler, Pennsylvania.
All our meat is inspected at a USDA-certified butchering facility.
Interested customers can arrange the purchase of our beef year-round by the half (custom cut), package, or individual cut. We offer a wide variety of steaks and roasts, as well as ground beef and beef jerky. We also have specialty items such as soup bones, tail, tongue, cheeks, heart, and liver available to purchase. We accept cash, credit/debit card, and SNAP EBT for purchases.
We proudly serve Butler County and Lawrence County through seasonal participation in the Butler City, Cranberry Township, Zelienople-Harmony, and Ellwood City Farmers Markets. Our beef is also available for purchase through our community pick-up program during the winter months. We also accept appointments for beef pick-up at our farm in Center Township, Butler County.
We are proud members of the Butler County Farm Bureau and Pennsylvania Association for Sustainable Agriculture (PASA).
Frequently Asked Questions
How are your cattle raised? What do you give them?
Sutton Farms beef cattle are both grass-fed and grass-finished. Throughout the year, they enjoy a mix of baled dry hay, baled grass silage, fresh cut grass, and open pasture. Their diet is supplemented with minerals and salt to provide additional nutrients not found in Pennsylvania’s grasses. They are never given hormones or antibiotics.
What is the difference between our beef and conventionally-raised beef?
Conventional beef (what is commonly served in restaurants and what you buy in the grocery store) is fed a diet filled with grains, primarily corn, to help the animal gain weight quickly and marble the meat with fat. Many facilities also give animals large amounts of growth hormones and antibiotics.
Sutton Farms' herd is fed GRASS... only grass, no exceptions... pastures when the weather allows and baled hay during the winter. The cattle are not given hormones or antibiotics. We butcher when the animal has reached an optimal weight and size for a lean and flavorful beef cut.
How can I purchase Sutton Farms beef?
