Vendor Profile:
Buck Creek Meats

Buck Creek Meats provides Frisco Rotary Farmers Market customers with Texas grown, 100% grass fed and grass finished beef and lamb, free range chicken, pastured eggs and pastured pork.

Mona and Richard Gregory run the 2,100 acre, third generation family farm near Paducah, Texas. The whole family is engaged in Buck Creek Meats (pictured above, from left, Kyler, Richard, Mona, Kade and Kit).

"My grandparents bought Buck Creek in the late 1930’s. Our family bought our cattle from my dad in 2009." Said Richard. "We raise our animals the way it was intended, cattle and lamb never get grain, chickens run free to scratch for seeds and bugs while eating all the plants they want and pigs thrive in the dirt and mud as they range their pasture."
Buck Creek cattle are "heritage" cattle breeds (Angus, Shorthorn & Galloway) that flesh easily on grass. The Galloway bulls breed smaller crossbred cows and calves that are efficient on grass alone. Buck Creek's cows are now smaller in size which makes them more efficient grazers that are also good mothers raising vigorous calves that grow fast. Shorthorn bulls improve the fleshing and create a highly marbled beef.

Buck Creek calves are selected for slaughter between 20 and 27 months. This more mature animal allows for the meat to marble "finish" unlike younger animals. Because of this the calves are larger in size and marbled well leading to a better tasting product.
Lamb is a new offering at Buck Creek. Their herd of Forper and Barbado ewe lambs and a nice black headed Dorper Ram were purchased in 2017. Dorper and Barbado sheep are consider “hair” sheep vs. “wool” sheep and are thus prized for their easy growth and their resistance to pests. This makes for healthier lambs that gain weight quicker. 

The pastures they are raised on are grass and legumes based and are nutrient, protein and carbohydrate rich making the perfect food for happy and growing lambs.

"Our lambs are grown on these pastures alongside their mamas until they reach 80-100 pounds." Said Richard. "This attention to detail produces some of the best lamb that you can put in your mouth."
Buck Creek chickens are raised the old fashioned way: on fresh green pasture and wholesome, non-GMO feed.

"Our farmers model has been developed over the past twenty years and allows the birds to be raised in a cleaner, healthier, happier environment doing what chickens like to do." Said Richard. "Our birds are raised in a drug free setting and are never given antibiotics, steroids or arsenic."
Buck Creek's pigs are heritage Berkshire & Duroc breeds that are raised on clean pastures that are rotationally grazed which creates healthier and happier pigs. The animals are also raised chemical free creating pork that is extra delicious that you are not afraid to put in your body. This care also means happy stress free pigs that enjoy just being a pig! (See above!)
The Buck Creek hens (egg chickens) are truly “free-range”! These chickens are raised on the same pastures as the other animals where they can “be a chicken” scratching for bugs and seeds while consuming as much fresh grass as they desire! 

They are housed in a mobile hen house at night to protect them from predators and provide a convenient place for them to lay their large brown (and occasional blue) eggs. 

"There is nothing happier and stress free than a chicken's life at Buck Creek" Said Richard.
