Image for Local Profile: Thousand Hills Cattle Co.

Thousand Hills Cattle Company, located in Cannon Falls, Minn., nourishes soil, plants, cattle, and people by holistically grazing cattle. Their 100% grass-fed cattle management practices are good for animals, people, and the planet, and promote long-term health, wellness, and environmental sustainability.

Founder Todd Churchill makes sure all of the cattle are locally-raised on family farms in the Upper Midwest. Thousand Hills has strict standards for their heritage breed, free-range, grass-fed beef. They pride themselves on raising the highest quality cattle, which are never given antibiotics, artificial hormones, GMOs, grain, or grain byproducts. Grass-fed beef is rich in omega-3 fats and has less fat marbling than corn-fed beef. Todd recommends you take the time to cook this beef “low and slow” for optimum tenderness.

Mississippi Market supports localorganicantibiotic-free and hormone-free meat producers, knowing exactly where our meats come from and how the animals are raised. In fact, about 90% of the meat we purchase comes from local producers or locally-owned businesses! We proudly carry Thousand Hills Cattle Co. beef products at the co-op for your enjoyment.
