There's a

Better Way

to raise cattle


back to basics

Black Hawk Farms produces the best meat possible by going back to basics. We take care of our soil and pasture. We raise healthy, happy animals. We grow the grains used to finish our beef. We humanely process the meat locally to ensure quality and freshness. 

This is the beef we feed our family. No hormones, no antibiotics, just pure wholesomeness.
— Brandon Oliver, Black Hawk Farms

bred for the best

We've been raising cattle for years. Over those years, we've selectively bred them for a variety of traits, including a calm disposition and, most importantly, flavor. Our calves are raised in the pastures here on Black Hawk Farms where they spend the first 8-9 months grazing in open fields.


As a chef you care about what you serve.
As farmers, we care about it too.


We've spent a lot of time and money creating the perfect environment to raise and finish beef cattle here in this little community of Black Hawk, Kentucky. What started out as a passion project for our family has taken us on a journey to bring you the best quality Angus beef, raised in an environmentally-sound and sustainable way.

The choice to feature local Angus beef on your menu goes far beyond keeping up with modern culinary trends. Black Hawk Farms is for discerning chefs and restaurateurs who want to serve the best beef possible

State of the ARt

Composting Barn

Our Composting Barn rests atop a hill, providing a breezy, covered and comfortable home for the finishing process. But it's more than just suitable to the calves. It's a sustainable, eco-friendly environment where waste is tilled daily with sawdust to be composted into organic fertilizer for our farm, water is captured and used for irrigation of our crops and our vision of a new way of finishing high-end beef has truly become a reality.


Grass Fed, grain Finished

We have been working the fields of our home soil more than four and a half decades. Frustrated from the lack of good quality beef in local restaurants, we realized that we could do something about it and, in the process, discovered the key to what could eventuallly change the entire industry.


Taste for Yourself

The quality you taste in Black Hawk Beef is a direct result of the care and commitment we take in the health of our animals and stewardship of our farmland.

Sure, there are cheaper ways to raise beef. But cheaper rarely means better. It’s not always easy to do the right thing, the right way, every time, but we’re passionate about taking good care of our land, our animals, our team, and you.
