ABOUT
A.W.Cox is a family owned and operated 7th generation farm nestled in Cox Hollow near Centreville, Alabama. From its humble beginnings as a crop farm growing corn, cotton, ribbon cane, sorghum and hay, to growing produce and Christmas trees, along with raising hogs and beef cattle, our family works diligently to provide quality products for our customers.

Our farm fresh produce is grown in-season and when available is sold from our produce stand on the farm.

Cox Hollow Christmas Tree Farm grows a variety of choose-and-cut Christmas trees. The trees are growing and will be available in the future.

Our naturally raised and grass-finished cattle and hogs may be sold by the quarter, half or whole share and are processed and vacuum packaged into freezer beef/pork. Your purchase includes the entire process from our pastures to your freezer ready for you to cook and enjoy.

We raise Hereford and Hereford-Angus grass-finished beef cattle along with old-fashioned hogs on our family farm in central Alabama. The pastures and woodlands provide for plentiful grazing in a stress free environment.

The best way to describe our grass-finished naturally raised meat is that it has a nice flavor profile. Our farm fresh meat has been described as flavorful and rich. You can also be assured that our animals are raised with care without added growth hormones, no steroids, and no antibiotics.

When it comes to nutrition the general consensus is that grass-finished naturally raised meat is higher in key beneficial nutrients, including antioxidants and vitamins, particularly vitamin A and E along with more healthy omega-3 fats and beta-carotene making it nutrient dense and something to consider when purchasing meat.

Our freezer beef cattle will be ready for processing at a weight that will produce the best quality beef from 800-1200 lbs. The freezer pork hogs are ready for processing at a weight that will produce the best quality pork from 220-260 lbs.

In addition to our nutrient dense pastures, spring water and mineral supplements are readily available for all animals and hay produced on our farm is provided during the winter as needed. Our hogs also eat fruits and vegetables grown on the family farm and may receive supplemental feed which contains vitamins and minerals.

Our Guarantee To You:
  • Grass Fed 
  • Grass Finished
  • No Added Growth Hormones
  • No Steroids
  • No Antibiotics
  • Raised With Care

Available inventory is listed at our online STORE where you can make a deposit. When paying by mail you can email or call to let us know what you are purchasing. If we are sold out please check back often for availability. The only way to guarantee you receive a share is to make a deposit and by doing so you have essentially purchased a share in a live animal that we will continue to raise until it is ready to process.
Whole beef share is the entire animal. If you purchase a whole beef share you are purchasing the entire live animal and will receive all of the beef from that animal. This is the most economical way to purchase beef from us and depending on family size can usually feed two or more families for an entire year.

Half beef share is half of the animal and is also known as a side of beef. If you purchase a half beef share you along with another individual are each purchasing half of the same live animal and the beef will be divided in 1/2 between the two of you.

Quarter beef share is a fourth of the animal. If you purchase a quarter beef share you are purchasing one-fourth of the live animal and will receive a 1/4 share portion of all cuts from one side of the animal from front to back.

All shares of the live animal must be sold and paid for in full before the animal is delivered for processing.
No problem, you can have that too. Just select an All Ground option in our online STORE when making your purchase. The percentage of lean/fat you receive will be 80-90% lean, i.e. 85% lean/15% fat. This will be very tasty dry-aged premium ground beef as it will comprise meat from all cuts of the same animal. Highly recommended as this is prime burger.
We are a 100% grass-fed and grass-finished farm. We never supplement our cattle with any grains. Our cattle graze on high quality pasture during the growing season and are fed stored forages as needed during the winter months. There is never a feed yard or feedlot involved in raising our cattle.
Yes. The custom processing facility will hang the beef carcass a minimum of 14 days in a controlled cold room environment for the dry-aging process. This naturally tenderizes and enhances the flavor of the beef.
You will receive a quarter, half, or whole beef share that has been processed, vacuum packaged and frozen. Ground beef will be packaged in chubs (tubes). Each animal is different and the final amount will vary. A typical whole share order from a live weight of 1,000 lbs may give you the following cuts of frozen beef:

20 lb Chuck Roast
20 lb Arm Roast

If you don't provide us with a completed and signed Cut Sheet when we receive your final payment the beef you receive will be packaged in what is known as the "Standard Cut".
