We are John and Emily Barnes. We are young, first generation farmers in the Carolinas, raising Angus cattle and purebred Berkshire pigs about 50 miles south of Charlotte, NC. We believe in thinking outside the box, hard work, and sweat equity.
We often find ourselves wondering where the food in the grocery stores or restaurants actually comes from. Who was the farm or farmer raising it? With Bravo Steaks, we know the answer. We are the caretakers of our beef cattle and pastured Berkshire pigs, and we want to share that story with you.
We have years of experience with livestock, and we raise our beef cattle and Berkshire pigs with diligence. We believe that our attention to detail distinguishes us from others. We taste the difference, and we hope you appreciate the care that goes into raising every pound of our beef and pork.
After years of breeding and planning, we are so excited to offer both dry aged beef and Berkshire pork to you and your family.
