THE FARM AND THE FARMERS
Three T Cattle Company is a local, cattle farm that is owned and operated by, husband and wife, Michael and Marlis Todd, and their son, Weston Todd. They have been in operation for the past five years. Through the use of over 300 acres of beautiful farmland in Paint Lick, Kentucky, Three T Cattle Co. runs a herd of cow-calf pairs, bred heifers, and Angus beef cattle. All of their cattle are naturally raised without being given any growth hormones or steroid fillers. Three T beef is USDA Certified, as well as certified Kentucky Proud.
Michael and Marlis became involved with the Berea Farmer’s Market in May 2016, and the Madison County Farmer’s Market in June 2016. It has been their mission to provide high quality meat to our community members and their families.
Before pursuing his life long dream of farming full time, Michael worked as Barn Manager at Peaceful Valley Ranch, in Lyons, Colorado and then for Southern Madison Water District, in Berea, Kentucky. Marlis moved to Kentucky, from Colorado in 2010, after graduating from Colorado State University. Marlis is currently working as a Special Education Teacher at Silver Creek Elementary. Weston is almost four years old, and he loves being a part of this farming operation. Some of his favorite things to do on the farm include, checking cattle, hauling cattle, and riding in the tractor.
Michael and Marlis Todd are proud to be young farmers living, and raising their son in Paint Lick, Kentucky. They take tremendous pride in the work that they do everyday, and they are happy to be a part of this wonderful farming community.
All our beef is USDA certified. So what does that mean? The term “certified” implies that the USDA’s Food Safety and Inspection Service and the Agriculture Marketing Service have officially evaluated a meat product for class, grade, or other quality characteristics. All our cattle are naturally raised without being given any growth hormones or steroid fillers. You can feel good about buying a local, quality, certified product from Three T Cattle Co!
Three T Cattle Co. is also certified Kentucky Proud. What does that mean? Kentucky Proud stands for foods, nursery items, crafts, agritourism sites, farmers’ markets, state parks, and many other products and destinations with roots in Kentucky soil. Kentucky Proud foods are raised, grown, or processed in Kentucky by Kentuckians. You can serve Kentucky Proud foods to your family with the confidence that they came from your friends and neighbors just down the road — not from thousands of miles away.
