Zach Miller grew up on his grandfather’s farm in Charlottesville, Virginia when it was still a “gentleman’s farm” for racehorses. But Zach and his parents wanted to take the family legacy in a new direction. Zach wanted to see the farm—his childhood home—preserved as a profitable model of an alternative to industrial agriculture. That meant great-tasting steaks, healthy grasses, and a land stewardship that could continue long into the future.
Tucked away in the Fingerlakes Region of New York, Autumn’s Harvest raises 100% grass-fed, grass-finished Murray Grey cows. While not too common in the US, Murray Greys are a popular species in Australia and New Zealand known for growing big and meaty on a pure grass diet. Raised by husband-and-wife team Tim and Sarah Hawes, Autumn’s Harvest beef is robust and beautifully marbled.
