The Petrie Family

John is a second-generation cattle farmer. The original farm was purchased by his father in 2000 and today they currently have 150 head of cattle.

John started working full-time for Tosh in 2008 after graduating college. He then expanded the farm in 2012 by building a 5000-head wean-to-finish pig facility. In 2016, John left Tosh to become a full-time cattle and pork producer and purchased a 4000-head wean-to-finish pig facility that was already in operation.

John and his wife, Dana have been married for eight years and have a four-year-old daughter named Amelia. Amelia loves tagging along and checking on all the livestock. Dana is a full-time employee with the State of Tennessee Department of Human Services and enjoys helping on the farms as much as she can.

Without our contract growers, we would be unable to expand as quickly as we have. Thank you so much, Petrie family!!
