About Us
We are a family-and-friends farm in Temple Terrace living our belief that good, healthy, local food should be available to all. We farm with the benefit of the land in mind, increasing fertility with each animal rotation, which allows us to raise animals without medications. They get organic feed, grass, weeds, hay, bugs and that’s it. We feed New Country organic, GMO-free, soy-free products. And we process our poultry on-farm. We also sell Providence Cattle's grass-fed, grass-finished Florida beef.

Providence Cattle: From Joe Planz, Owner/Head Rancher:

"Providence Cattle Company offers Grassfed beef for those that are looking for a healthy, earth friendly alternative to commercial store bought beef. Our beef is all locally raised and harvested and is free of antibiotics and hormone supplements.

"After raising steers the traditional commercial way, using grain, we were asked to provide grassfed beef for one of our customers. We did extensive research on how to properly raise and finish steers that would deliver an incredible taste with just the right amount of marbling.

"Realizing the amout of pasture land required to raise grassfed beef properly, we reached out to some of our rancher friends throughout Central Florida to assist.

"Working with the ranchers, we monitor the herds and grasses to ensure that the steers gain weight naturally, and are finished on high protein legumes for just the right amount of time. These flowery grasses provide the natural Omega 3 fat that depict the health benefits of grassfed beef. It also provides the fat required for marbling that will assist in keeping the meat moist when cooking.

"Over the last eight years we have been blessed with tremendous success in raising steers and transforming Providence Cattle Company from traditional beef to grassfed. We are proud to say that our beef is offered in 9 different retail markets in the Tampa Bay area, and over 20 restaurants. We have accomplished this through hard work and with the assistance of good friends and family.

"In addition, we always remember that all that we do is for Ad Majorem Dei Gloriam (The Greater Glory of God)."
Practices
We practice intensive rotational grazing with our sheep, the farm's ruminant. We free-range our egg-laying flocks, moving their mobile coop every few days to fresh pasture. The meat chickens are pastured, moving to fresh grass every morning and improving the grazing capacity of the pasture with each fertilizing pass. Through the Limited Poultry and Egg Farm permit, we process our poultry right on the farm.
