Palmer's Timberdoodle Farm
Our Angus-Hereford cross beefers are born and raised on our small family farm, nestled in the hills of Otsego County. They are all natural, pasture-raised with a small portion of grain each day; no hormones, antibiotics, pesticides or other chemicals. In winter they enjoy high quality hay from our own fields. Daily interaction with the herd enables us to monitor them and keeps them calm and friendly, producing a consistent, high quality eating experience for our customers – juicy, tender, flavorful beef. We are NY Beef Quality Assurance Certified Producers, and raise our cattle by those standards.
