More Information

"Just a traditional, old-fashioned farm." That's how farmer Kerry Hedges describes Slowpoke Farm, a sustainable operation located just south of Cisco between Forth Worth and Abilene. Built on diversified and balanced production of clean, healthy food, Slowpoke features pasture-raised animals, including lambs, chickens, and cattle, and a wide variety of vegetables and fruits.

Everything at Slowpoke is raised and sold from the farm and at the Abilene Farmers' Market (every Saturday). Throughout the growing season customers can get any number of chemical free, market veggies from the farm, such as squash, peppers, okra, tomatoes, and much more.

The lambs and cattle are entirely pasture-raised and feast on a diet of grasses from start to finish. They're never fed grain. Meats should be available year-round, although the lamb is in high demand and is only sold via waiting list, so be sure to inquire. Beef is generally provided by the pound in a range of cuts; steaks, roasts, etc., although ground beef (sold in 1lb. packs) may be the only thing available at certain points throughout the year. As Hedges says, "individual cuts are available when we have them. We don't cheat; we just take what Mother Nature gives us."
