Stokes Family Farm
We Are and What We Do
Stokes Family Farm
provides grass-fed beef,
pastured Berkshire pork, and fresh produce to
the local community. We also utilize many heirloom
vegetable varieties and heritage breeds of livestock
to preserve bio-diversity.
Although not a "certified" organic farm, we practice natural farming
techniques and almost never use chemical inputs. If we do use an artificial agent, it is to
save the life of an animal or preserve the health of the
people on the farm.
In 1978, my parents,
Fred and Dottie Stokes, bought
twenty-one acres of eastern Gwinnett County, GA, but in recent
years, I turned it into a functioning
farm. We sell wholesome, natural foods grown by the sweat of
our brows. And in the truest sense of hospitality, our food
and stories are available to all.
To find us,
“Go on down past the old Dunegan place. It’s a fer piece,
but any of ‘em can point it out.”

I’ve had best results using old recipes from cookbooks before
the Second World War. People understood natural meats better
then and wrote recipes to compliment them. These cookbooks
may still be found at estate or garage sales and second-hand
bookstores, or just ask to borrow grandma's!
My favorite methods for cooking any lean steak or roast
include traditional Chinese pepper steak, Mexican fajitas,
and Cuban steaks. Even cuts from tough old bulls are tender
and juicy when sliced thinly across the grain of the meat, marinated in teriyaki sauce or lime and
garlic, and cooked 20 to 30 seconds on a sizzling cast iron
skillet or wok… Your Stokes Farm grass-fed beef
comes from a tender young animal, and it is scrumptious!
"Empress" the Pig
Empress is very affectionate. She loves physical contact
and will do almost anything for a belly rub. She barely
notices when I sit on her, but her eyes roll back in her
head as soon as I start to rub her. She'll be the mother of
next year's pigs.
