  • Our family has been raising Angus cattle for 3 generations, always selecting superior genetics, which has provided us with a small, carefully selected herd of cows that continually produce premium beef.

  • Our cattle rotationally graze the lush pastures of our 155 acre family farm nestled off the shores of Lake Ontario in Western New York.

  • Our animals spend their entire life on the farm, and are finished on free choice hay and supplemented with hand fed grain to achieve the marbling which makes our beef so desirable.

  • We practice humane animal husbandry, personally ensuring our cattle are taken care of, well fed and never administered growth hormones.

  • Our cattle are butchered under 20 months of age, and the carcasses are dry-aged for a minimum of 21 days. This combination provides optimum tenderness in the beef.

  • Our beef is processed at a small, local butchering facility that is USDA inspected; providing a guarantee of cleanliness and safety as well as a handcrafted product.

  • Finally, our beef is flash frozen and vacuum sealed in Cryovac packages to maintain quality and ensure the safest, most wholesome and delicious protein you are sure to enjoy.

Custom Cuts


These orders are cut to your specifications, vacuum sealed, labeled and flash frozen. They are priced by hanging weight before cutting. You will take home approximately 2/3 of the weight, the rest being waste fat and bone. All of our beef is raised naturally and finished on our farm without any hormones or additives. Our beef is slaughtered under Federal Inspection. These prices do not include the butchering fees, which will vary depending on your cutting specifications. Stock up your freezer with beef cut exactly the way you want it!
