The local meats are provided by our very own Triple L Ranch in Franklin TN. Triple L is a family owned and operated beef farm on the rolling hills of western Williamson county.  They raise polled herford cows the natural way which is in large open grass pastures and are never confined in small pens or barns for finishing.  The cows are raised on a steady diet of grass constantly. During the last 120 days they are offered natural feed consisting of corn, wheat , soy bean meal, cottonseed hulls, soybean hulls.  This grain finishing creates a wonderful marbling and tenderness of the meat that makes their premium cuts taste so delicious.
