We have been raising 100% grass fed & grass finished angus beef on our farm since 1979, over 40 years.  As of Jan 1, 2016, we have retired from the Orchard business and are focusing on raising our grass-fed Angus cattle, our original enterprise.  At Shew's Family Farm Store, we offer all of the different cuts of fresh frozen Angus grass-fed beef, state inspected, vacuum packed & sold by the package.    If we are home, we are open 9am to 5pm, 7 days a week, but it is always best to call or email for an appointment. 740 557-3032.  We also sell our beef custom wrapped by the Quarter or Half.

We are also a vendor year round on Saturdays at the Athens Farmers Market on East State Street in Athens, Ohio from 9:00am-12:00noon. And at the Athens Farmers Market Wednesdays 9:00am-12:00noon from April to December.

You can also dine on our beef at The Triple Nickel Diner in Chesterhill, Oh

Many farms raise beef part of their lives on grass, and finish on grain, and then call them "grass-fed".  But we raise our beef 100% naturally year round on grass & legume pastures, and during the winter we supplement grass & legume hay that we have produced on our farmOur cattle have never been on feedlot or fed grains of any kind, antibiotics, or hormones.  We have 120 acres of pasture and we rotate the cattle once a day to fresh fields, a very sustainable and regenerative model, resulting in excellent flavored & textured meat with high nutritional values.  Basically, our beef is organically raised, but we are not certified.

100% Grass-fed beef is better for human health than grain-fed beef in ten different ways, according to the most comprehensive analysis to date. The 2009 study was a joint effort between the USDA and researchers at Clemson University in South Carolina.

Compared with grain-fed beef, 100% grass-fed beef was found to be:
  • Lower in total fat

  • Higher in beta-carotene

  • Higher in vitamin E (alpha-tocopherol)

  • Higher in B vitamins thiamin and riboflavin

  • Higher in minerals calcium, magnesium, and potassium

  • Higher in total omega-3's

  • A healthier ratio of omega-6 to omega-3 fatty acids (1.65 vs 4.84)

  • Higher in CLA (cis-9 trans-11), a potential cancer fighter

  • Higher in vaccenic acid (which can be transformed into CLA)

  • Lower in the saturated fats linked with heart disease

 

Also available year round in our farm store are  13 kinds of Marjie's homemade jams & jellies, applebutter with & without sugar, sugar free apple sauce,  and 2 kinds of honey mustard, all made on our farm.

Our secluded Rustic Vacation Cabin is available for rent year round, situated in a grove of trees overlooking the bass pond on the back side of our farm.
