MEET THE PEOPLE BEHIND THE BEEF

Indiana farm focuses on passing stewardship down through generations

The Sennett family of Sennett Farms & Cattle Co. is as dedicated to their outfit as they are their family. In the Sennett family, stewardship is taught from a young age, with an emphasis on showing the younger generations the importance of caring for the environment. This is an attitude that the Sennetts carry over into practice. Sennett Farms & Cattle Co. designed their farm so that the cattle and crops work together. They have implemented rotational grazing and have built a roofed feeding barn in accordance with environmental standards. For years, they have employed no-till cropping, have vowed to never cut down a tree unless it has fallen, and they have worked with the National Resources Conservation Service (NRCS) on various projects, like installing filter strips to keep their water sources clean and clear. With two major US roadways running through their property, it is important to the Sennetts that the public can see the benefit of good stewardship for themselves. For their ongoing work in enacting and teaching stewardship through the generations, Sennett Farms & Cattle Co. was awarded the prestigious Environmental Stewardship Award (ESAP).

"There are three things that we think are very important, and those are faith, family, and work ethic. Without that, you have nothing." - Clark Sennett, Owner, Sennett Farms & Cattle Co.
