My Family Life
Hi there, my name is Ross and I am a husband, a father, an entrepreneur, and a full-time farmer. My wife, Jodi and I, live in rural Webberville, Michigan, right next door to where I grew up as a kid and where my family lives today. Together we are raising and homeschooling our three boys, Owen, Benjamin and Shane, all who are now 1st Degree Black Belts in Martial Arts.
I am an entrepreneur who started a small business called Scarecrow Racing Products back in 1999 to which I created a racing tape product called Bear Bond. Still today, my wife and I supply our product to NASCAR and to other racing circuits.
I have spent 34 years living and breathing auto racing. I’ve worked with many teams and in many different racing circuits over these years. I’ve worked for all of the Big Three Manufacturers in racing. My travels took me all across the country. The most memorable being The 24 Hours of LeMans in France with the Corvette Racing Team ten times. That part of my life was intense and exhausting, exciting and adventurous, but all consumed a lot of time and energy. But unfortunately, a career of this nature doesn’t last forever and it was time to venture back to my roots… Agriculture, this is what I am meant and love to do!
Agriculture runs in my family. My father, Dr. Graham Jeffrey, DVM opened his own veterinary practice back in 1970, here in Webberville, Michigan. Back in 1973, my father invested in two purebred Black Angus cattle for the start of his herd on the farm. Through those years, I went on many vet calls and had plenty of hands-on lessons and experiences with my dad in the cattle business. I learned a lot from my father, from the importance of handling and caring for the livestock, and what it means to be a good steward of the land. Today, our Angus herd continues to roam on these same acres as from where I grew up.
I have continued on with my father's legacy with the Angus breed where I work diligently to keep up with the everyday farming operations. The farm is a family-run operation that was built from the ground up. We run our cattle, raise our kids and operate our farm business.
Our cattle are raised with the highest of standards in mind, while keeping in mind sustainability, soil regenerative and pasture rotational grazing on only the grasses in front of them. They are truly grass-fed and grass-finished from start to finish. We provide the resources, while the cattle produce the best, premium beef they know how--Just for You!
I owe my gratitude to my late father and mother who have provided the experiences, the know-how, and the land that made it possible for my family to carry on the tradition of agriculture into the 21st century.
Our goals are focused on providing healthy, worry-free, premium, pasture raised, grass-fed and grass-finished beef for our customers, and to continue to prosper our family farm that will leave a legacy not just for our family, but to our customers as well! We pride ourselves on creating profitable relationships that like our business, stand the test of time.
I have dedicated my farms’ name, Heaven Sent Farms, to my late parents in honor of them.

Being certified with the Beef Quality Assurance Program-BQA of Michigan, this program helps beef farmers and ranchers raise better beef so consumers can feel even better about buying it. Raising quality beef requires commitment and hard work. Certification is earned, not bought. For beef farmers and ranchers, that means using modern techniques to raise cattle under optimal environmental and economic conditions. For consumers, it means knowing the beef they buy is wholesome and delicious.
