Steve Whitmire's family has been farming in the Blue Ridge Mountains of North Carolina since the early 1800's.  As a kid, Steve's chore was to look after the lone family cow.  Today Steve oversees a much larger herd of Angus/Braunvieh cattle on 1,000+ acres in Brasstown, North Carolina, ensuring they always have sufficient spring water, ample grass, freshly mixed feed and room to roam.
