Know your Farmer
Salem Hills Farm was established in 2001 by two brothers wanting to turn a hobby and passion into a job that they love.
Julius traded in his corporate sales job and Rossi retired after 25 years of service in the US Army to go back to their roots. “We come from a family that instilled the value of living off the land. Our grandfather was a rancher and worked a several-acre garden every year to feed the family. We remember walking behind Papa, foot to foot as he tilled the garden and the excitement for young boys to pick the tomatoes we had planted. Our father followed the trade and became a butcher. These two men instilled the value of owning and working the land and encouraged us to buy our land/farms at a very young age.” Julius’ 70+ acre farm which was purchased in 2001, a few years after graduating from the Citadel, is the farm used today to raise their cattle.
In 2011, Salem Hills Farm started selling their 100% Grass Fed Beef at the King’s Drive Farmers Market, Charlotte, NC, owned and operated by the Simpson Family since 1941. The business has continued to grow by adding several local restaurants and offering home delivery during the off season.
“Today, we continue to do what we love and share the importance of respecting and living off the land and providing high quality beef for our family and yours.”
