Alan

Alan Mahan

Rabbit Ridge has always been Alan's home. He grew up on his father's dairy farm and swore he would never have cows. Evidently, farming runs through his veins because he ended up acquiring his own herd of cows in his 20s. Alan has been a General Contractor for 25+ years, but his heart has always been drawn to the farm. He even purchased his Grandfather's homeplace in 2000 and resides there with his family.

Angela

Angela Mahan

As a former flatlander, Angela has adjusted well to life in the hills. Her background included working and teaching at a postsecondary institution so she enjoys writing and researching. She also enjoys checking on the animals with Alan and finds watching them to be therapeutic.


About Our Family

Rabbit Ridge Farms has a beautiful history that tells the story of three generations of Mahans starting in the 1800s. Alan fondly remembers his younger days growing up on Rabbit Ridge Farms where he learned the cattle trade.

Back in the flat-lands of Northeast Arkansas, Angela grew up on a row crop farm raising cotton, rice, and soybeans. In 2013, she and Alan married; their varying farm backgrounds gave them a unique view in their approach to farm life.

Several years ago, we vowed to feed our family only meat produced on the farm. We already raised cows so it made sense to add pigs next, then came chickens. Our goal is to be as sustainable as possible and regenerate the soil rather than take away from it. And so the evolution of Rabbit Ridge Farms took motion!

Life on Rabbit Ridge is not a job; it's a way of life. Zack, the oldest of Alan and Angela's four children, grew up helping on the farm. He is now married, a dad, and out working on his own, but he still enjoys creating and testing new products. Maggie is passionate about protecting the environment and works as an Environmental Specialist for a large construction company and often works our farm events. Jacob has mechanical talents and has been driving a tractor since he was 8 and works on a row crop farm. Crafton, the youngest and in college, often works our events.

From Our Farm To Your Family

At Rabbit Ridge Farms we like to do things differently. Like the old days. That's why we raise cattle and hogs the way your Grandpa used to before the rise of mass production and unnecessary hormonal treatments. We keep things simple and natural...the way God intended. Here, our animals are able to graze peacefully and the pigs root at their leisure.

On our sustainable farm, we ensure our animals have a free range life and are nourished with a healthy variety of feed, grass, berries, nuts and more. That's why you could say we're "better than organic" because unlike what the labels imply, many "organic" meats vary little from the commercialized meat factories.

With Rabbit Ridge Farms, you know where your meat originates. And trust us when we say, you'll notice a remarkable difference in taste; the tenderness and protein-rich flavor are unprecedented from anything you've ever tried from the grocery store. And it's healthier for you. Since our animals graze freely, they acquire a plethora of micro-nutrients so they offer more "good" fats and omega-3s and antioxidants including vitamins E, beta-carotene, and vitamin C. We never use hormones or antibiotics.


All of our cattle are premium Black Angus because we only deal with the best. We raise several varieties of pigs including Duroc, Hampshire and Yorkshire that are crossed with a Berkshire.

We treat our animals ethically and humanely. It is actually quite simple. The animals are raised in their intended, natural habitat with some additional comforts like shelter and fresh, clean water.

Rabbit Ridge Farms uses farming techniques that protect the environment and animal welfare. We practice responsible farm management to enable us to produce healthful food for our family and yours.

The Old Fashioned Way

Pastured meat looks different than meat purchased from the grocery store. Our pork has marbling and is pinker in color. Since the animals at Rabbit Ridge Farms are allowed to eat freely from nature and roam freely, the meat has more "good" fat which means more flavor.

Be careful to not overcook the meat cuts like chops, steaks, and loins. We recommend slow cooking roasts at a lower temperature until tender.
