The Serenity Homestead started when our family wanted to eat healthier. We adopted our first chickens, enjoyed the bounty of eggs, and realized we had an abundance. The Serenity Homestead was born. Whether it's fresh eggs or raw honey from our beehives, we want to share our home-grown goodness with you.
Wanting to expand our offerings, we've partnered with Downe Wholesome Beef to bring you spectacular cuts of beef. Our beef is 100% grass-fed & grass-finished.
Jimmy and Wende Downe have raised cattle for the past 25 years in Anderson County, Texas. Downe Wholesome Beef was founded in 2013 out of a desire to provide family, friends, and neighbors reasonably priced, nutrient dense beef.
A third-generation cattleman, Jimmy has owned cattle since he was 12 years old. Upon realization that exposure to and use of pesticides was likely the cause of generational family health problems, he decided to make radical changes that would produce wholesome, nutrient dense beef.
In 2013, Jimmy and Wende began sustainably raising cattle without the use of grain, antibiotics, added hormones, herbicides, pesticides, or commercial fertilizer.
The goal of Downe Wholesome Beef is to produce nutrient dense beef that can be used as a tool toward a person achieving optimal health and well-being.
“We have been loyal customers of the Cottons for the past 4 years. They have always been responsive to our needs, and we can’t speak highly enough of the quality of meat that we get. Grass fed meat can be difficult for those who are not used to it, as it’s leaner than grain fed. But it’s so much healthier, and once you learn how to cook it, you get spoiled and never want to go back to conventional.”

“I have been purchasing eggs and beef from the Cottons for many years. The customer service has always been incredible, but more importantly the quality of their food is outstanding! It is always top quality and clean. I would highly recommend them to anyone looking for the best.”
"This is honestly the best honey I’ve ever tasted! What you find on the grocery store shelf cannot begin to compare to the taste and freshness of Honey from Serenity Homestead. Anything that needs a bit of sweetness gets this honey...I add it to tea, mix it in yogurt, dip crackers and apple slices in it, and drizzle it on pancakes, rice cakes, bagels, and biscuits. The possibilities are endless! Thank you for providing a pure delicious product that I feel good about consuming. I’ll never buy honey off the grocery shelf again!!!
