Information about the setting along with selected quotes from the works of Aldo Leopold


The Old Barn

The oldest structural components in this barn pre-date the civil war. Its aged oak rafters are home to dozens of swallows, who do a satisfying job of controlling insect populations over the whole farm. 

"How would you like to have a thousand cliff swallows keeping house in the eaves of your barn, gobbling up insects over your farm at the rate of 100,000 per day?"


Room Enough to Roam

Our dogs can exercise and explore on the farm, and they play their own role in its activity. More than that, a farm dog has a sense of place. She understands things that the valley shares with her alone. 

"Only the mountain has lived long enough to listen objectively to the howl of the wolf."


Trusted Equipment

Some of the farm's equipment has been around for generations. The same tractor plows the same garden year after year, and our heritage is preserved in the knowledge of the machine's inner workings which have enabled its passage from parent to child. 

"Our job is to sharpen our tools and make them cut the right way. the sole measure of our success is the effect which they have on the forest."

About Mammoth Valley Farm

Mammoth Valley is a farm in Barren County, Kentucky. While the farm has seen great change and growth in its 100+ years, 6th generation farmer Jeanna Smith wanted to try something new.

Considering the aftermath of empty meat aisles at groceries during the spring of 2020, we decided to reach out to our friends and neighbors about buying direct. After all, we've been independent of grocery store beef for years thanks to the farm. It occurred to us that we have the ability to share that feeling of security we've felt during hardships.

Folks love it. It's delicious and it's affordable. Now, we want to share that product with you ...
