Southern Heritage Farming
We are a brother, sister, sister team who inherited 150 acres of farm land in the mountains of Western North Carolina with dreams of continuing the 75 year farming legacy of our parents in the 21st century. We believe that grass fed Wye Angus cattle and industrial hemp farming are the agricultural means for our sustainable future.
We believe in the small family farm and environmentally conscious farming methods.
Come visit with us on the porch at Sycamore Hill Farm to watch the cattle graze or experience the wind swept peaks of Sandy Gap Farm to see industrial hemp grown or pick your Christmas tree.

About Our Beef & Wye Angus Herd
Sycamore Hill Farm offers Wye Angus grass fed beef, the finest beef grown, ready for pick-up and direct service to your dining table. USDA certified grass fed, birth to harvest!
Beef sold through farm to table methods that is safer to eat and healthier for everyone!
A Vision of Survival
Housing developments are not what we should do with our rural mountain farms. We believe farm preservation that creates viability in today’s global economy is possible!
We need to commit to stewardship to our mountain land and mountain people; a quality way of life for our farming families; and the Farm to Table model.
Christmas Trees & Industrial Hemp
As part of our farming legacy we inherited a Fraiser Fir Christmas tree farm. Currently we are transitioning this farm to grow industrial hemp.
Choose and cut Christmas trees are still available as well as greenery for florists and nurseries.

Why Buy Beef from Sycamore Hill Farm?
Sycamore Hill Farm is your market place for fresh and trustworthy grass fed beef. Supporting pasture to plate models means you can get to know, visit, and ultimately trust the producer of your meat to ensure you buy quality beef for your dining table . . . thus contributing to the nutrition and health of you and your loved ones.
Our grass fed beef has a unique rich beefy flavor with a tender and juicy taste that is a direct result of Wye Angus genetics, 100% grass feeding strategies, and hand raised cattle. Grass fed beef is very different from grain fed beef both in terms of health, taste, and cooking approach.

Sycamore Hill Farm offers Farm-to-Table tasting events throughout the year and we welcome visitors by appointment to meet the Wye Angus herd.
Sycamore Hill Farm’s Wye Angus Herd is from one of the most genetically unique Angus herds in the world with their lineage traced back to early Scotland and the British Isles. Wye Cattle are also one of the most documented cattle herds in the world rivaled only by such programs as the Line 1 Herefords of Ft. Keogh Research Center.
Wye Angus cattle have been intensely studied for the suitability of their meat in fat content, marbling, taste and tenderness and when combined with 100% grass feeding strategies produce a winning combination for those who enjoy eating beef!
Sycamore Hill Farm cattle are raised without grains, added hormones, antibiotics, and no feed-lot strategies are used! They are USDA certified grass fed. Our cattle are grass fed for their entire life, humanely treated, and provided lots of open mountain pasture land with pristine water sources, and fresh clean air.
This means you can feel confident about the safety and nutrition of the meat you consume from Sycamore Hill Farm. Grass fed beef is leaner with fat content that is healthier. Grass fed beef is lower in calories, contains more vitamins A and E, has higher levels of antioxidants, and has up to seven times more beta-carotene. It contains more alpha-linolenic acid (ALA, an omega-3 fatty acid) as well as more CLA (conjugated linoleic acid), a natural trans-fat that may be one of the most potent defenses against cancer. Omega-3s are essential for brain and heart health.
