Fifth Generation Farm in Truxton, Missouri

Welcome to Cope Grass Farm, a multi-generational farm deeply rooted in Truxton, MO for over 150 years. Harry is a fourth-generation member of our farm, and his daughter, Sabrina, proudly represents the fifth generation of our family as we continue the legacy of our family’s commitment to providing nutrient dense food using natural farming techniques.

We embrace a non-judgmental approach to food and are here to help you navigate selecting higher quality ingredients for nutrient-dense diet free from unnecessary and harmful additives and practices. Go ahead – ask us! We’ll share what we know as we continue to learn and hone our skills and knowledge in an ever-changing world.

Regenerative Practices

In 1997 Harry started incorporating regenerative practices into our operations. This included rotational grazing to move our animals between pastures. We strive to maintain transparency about our practices, so questions and visits are welcomed!

Healthy soil is the foundation of a thriving farm, and regenerative practices are at the heart of our commitment to nurturing the land. Our fields are adorned with vibrant sunflowers, nutrient-rich red clover, nourishing milo, and hearty oats, which not only serve as feed for our animals but also act as natural fertilizers, enhancing the soil’s fertility. By fostering biodiversity, building organic matter, and improving water retention, regenerative practices help create a harmonious balance between our farm, the environment, and the community we serve.

Grass-Fed, Grass-Finished

At Cope Grass Farm, we embrace diversification, raising a variety of livestock including beef, pork, lamb, duck, and turkey. By working in harmony with nature, we have discovered that it enables us to produce not only flavorful but also nutrient-dense food that benefits both our customers and the environment.

Discover the art of taste with our grass-fed and grass-finished meats. We prioritize the well-being of our animals and the exceptional quality of our products. By feeding our livestock with grass throughout their lives, we ensure that every bite delivers natural flavors and unrivaled tenderness. Experience the true essence of high-quality, natural meats that make every meal a moment to savor.

Nature’s Steward

As stewards of the land, we have obtained Audubon certification as a Grassland Bird Friendly beef producer. This prestigious certification recognizes our dedication to maintaining a thriving ecosystem that supports the diverse bird species found in our grasslands. We are honored to be one of only seven such certified farms in the state of Missouri. We joke with our customers when we visit the city that if you expect to visit the farm and find quiet tranquility, you’re mistaken. Our farm is a bustling ecosystem full of animals and all the noises they make! We love walking the farm and hearing life teeming with abundance.
