In the upper part of Duplin County, North Carolina and tucked next to the bottomlands of Goshen Swamp, Kornegay Hereford Farms has continued the 1949 heritage of producing rich foods from the land.
The red and white Hereford cattle have always been the legacy of this family farm since Cecil and Jean Kornegay began raising their four children. The Herefords from England are a heritage cattle breed that has always been known for their flavor, tenderness, and efficiency on grass. The gentleness of the breed is an understatement and is quite evident in the memorable photograph of the found Cecil Kornegay with his beloved bull KHF Mr. Dynamite.
Continuing the love of the Hereford breed, the youngest and only daughter, Karen, along with her husband Gary, have continued the Hereford farm. Raising their three children on the farm has taught their family the value of healthy foods.
The family is using regenerative agriculture methods to sustain the farm beyond the next generation and reaching future farmers through their internship program with the University of Mt. Olive Agriculture and Biological Science Program.
Active in the local community by supporting the state's motto of "It's got to be North Carolina Agriculture", all cattle are born and raised on the farm and processed through a local plant right here in North Carolina.
Believing that Hereford is the best tasting "Holy Cow", Kornegay Hereford Farms is now selling directly to the consumer through an expanded market. Farm-raised and always antibiotic, chemical and hormone-free, our Hereford beef is straight from our farm to your table.
Our Hereford cattle have lineage from the strong foundations of the Victor & Domino bloodlines. We strive to increase growth but never loosing focus on calving ease and milking ability. A well balanced breeding plan drives future success. Some of the Hereford sires that we use to continue that success are MSU Revolution, NJW Durango 44U, Anhinga Vic K16, Victor 719T, & Feltons Legend 242.
