The Dawson Creek Cattle Company
Situated along the banks of the Neuse River, where land and sky meet water, you’ll find the Lee Farm & Ranch. Located 6 miles outside Oriental, this is where the cows of the Dawson Creek Cattle Company call home. The Lee family has been farming sweet potatoes, beans, corn and tobacco on these lands since the early 1900s. The 5th generation of Lee family farmers is led by Justin Lee, his wife Christen, and their two daughters Cameron and Colby Jae. Together they carry on the practice of sustainability through diversification by raising hormone free grass fed cattle in a pristine low stress environment. What started as a single hobby cow has organically grown into a thriving business.
