How It All Started

Wholly Cow is a family-owned and operated farm that has been in business since 1885. Our story started with a pioneer spirit and a vision to conquer the Wild West. Great-great-grandfather Henry Bearman settled on our land in Johnson City, Kansas, after taking a train from Cincinnati and walking 25 miles south. He quickly learned that eastern farming methods would not work in the western region and began experimenting with rice, corn, sorghum, kaffir, and maize.

Henry eventually found success in the cattle industry, growing his herd to 800 head of horses and cattle. Today, Wholly Cow continues the Bearman legacy with a passion for sustainable, humane farming practices. We are proud to provide our customers with the highest quality beef, poultry, pork, and other meats that are ethically and sustainably raised on our farm. Our meats are 100% hormone- and antibiotic-free, and we never use feedlots or GMO products.

The Importance of Regenerative Farming

At Wholly Cow, we are passionate about the environment and the health of our planet. We strive to be a model for sustainable, regenerative farming that produces the healthiest, most nutritious products in the market. Through our responsible farming practices, we are proud to be reducing our carbon footprint and restoring the fertility of our soils. 

We began our journey with the conviction that there has to be a better way of farming than the conventional methods used by most farms today. In 2005, we decided to take a leap of faith and switch to a no-till method of regenerative farming. This was a dramatic change from traditional farming practices, as it required us to give up many of the traditional farming techniques, such as tilling and plowing, and embrace a more natural approach to agriculture.
