HOMEGROWN BEEF
RAISED RIGHT

We are Florida family cattle ranchers, proud of our state’s rich environment and ecosystems that enable us to raise cattle, feed Floridians and pass along the values and traditions of our robust ranching heritage. We are a diverse group with experience in all areas of producing cattle — from land conservation, sustainability, animal health, nutrition, production and marketing to processing and sales. We’ve joined together to bring you Homegrown Beef – Raised Right, one of the few beef programs from cattle born, raised and harvested in Florida in decades.

THE FCR MISSION

To bring back to Florida consumers homegrown beef, born and raised in our state using: time-honored traditions, wholesome humane practices, and an intentional focus on the sustainability of Florida — our environment, our land, our wildlife, our economy, our cattle industry, and our heritage, all done with transparency and integrity so we can always be proud of our work and never stop having fun doing it.

FCR Values

HOMEGROWN BEEF
Our beef is unique because no matter how you like your beef cooked, most people believe “homegrown” is better. We know it’s better. For decades beef cattle born in our state have been weaned and then shipped out west to be fed for the rest of their lives. Not our beef. It’s “homegrown.” It’s wholesome beef born and raised right here in Florida. It’s Homegrown Beef – Raised Right.

RAISED RIGHT
Our beef is “raised right” because we raise our cattle using time-honored, safe and humane practices to protect them – as well as Florida’s beautiful open spaces, environment, natural resources and animal habitats. And bringing all production back to our state contributes to a better, more sustainable Florida.
