End of the Road Farm & Studio, LLC is a small, Army Veteran- and family-owned farm. Our mission is to provide you with great, locally grown food using regenerative farming practices while revitalizing the local food ecosystem. We are located in West Central Alabama, just minutes away from Columbus, MS and a short drive from Columbus Air Force Base.
We raise all grass-fed, grass-finished, nutrient-dense beef. Our beef is never given any grains, they only feast on grass or stored grass year-round. We also offer eggs from our free-ranged chickens. Our chickens get to wander freely around the farm and reside in chicken tractors that are moved every few days to ensure they have access to fresh grass and can spread their nutrient-dense manure around. We use low stress handling techniques with all our animals.
In addition, we also offer a variety of fruits and vegetables throughout the year. If our produce isn’t in season, not to worry as we’ve preserved some for you. Check out our selection of jams, jellies, preserves, relishes and more! We also offer a line of all-natural, handcrafted soaps.
We can be found in Columbus, MS at The Hitching Lot Farmers Market and in Northport, AL at the Northport Farmers Market. We also offer direct from the farm pickup as well as shipping of some of our products.

Persimmon Ridge Family Farm uses regenerative farming techniques to produce healthy grass-fed, grass-finished beef. This system of farming makes us good stewards of the land we have been blessed with and provides benefits for current as well as future generations.
Regenerative farming improves the environment which naturally sustains agricultural productivity. A key part of this system involves using intensive rotational grazing methods to strategically move our cows throughout the pasture multiple times each day. This prevents the grass from getting eaten down so low that it stunts its growth and allows the cows to get all the nutrition they need from fresh pasture as they eat it down uniformly.
Industrial farming, in contrast, treats land like a petri dish, using chemicals to neutralize the natural health of the soil and then treating it with chemically manufactured fertilizers to prop up the grass and forage fed to the cows. With regenerative farming, cows trample the weeds into the ground, rather than having farmers spraying chemicals on the plants to kill them. This nourishes the soil and improves both the short- and long-term health of the pasture. It also benefits farmers by reducing the time we spend on our tractors and keeping the pastures healthier deep into the fall and winter. Healthier fields allow us to feed less hay and to finish the cows on grass rather than with grain troughs, giving customers a healthier choice for beef!
Regenerative farming provides natural food sources from the growth of the forage all the way to delivery to our customers.
