Sherwood Acres was founded in 2003 for the purpose of providing the local area with a healthy alternative to mass-produced, store-bought beef.
The Company's objective is to naturally raise hormone-free steroid-free beef cattle without the high stress of feedlots and high volume production. Our beef is also free of growth stimulants and sub therapeutic antibiotics. The chosen breed for our farm is the Belted Galloway, which originated in the Galloway district of Scotland. This breed boasts low-fat and low-cholesterol characteristics. We have naturally enhanced the quality by combining free-range grazing with a supplement of corn and soybeans, resulting in flavorful and tender meat. Specific benefits of Belted Galloway Beef, aside from its taste, are lower total fat, lower saturated fat, higher Omega 3 acids, a lower Omega 6 to Omega 3 ratio and approximately 40% less cholesterol than typical store bought beef.
Unlike many beef producers who only sell quarters or halves, we offer several choices:
- Individual Cuts
- Sample Packs
- Quarters or Halves
- Free delivery, or visit our retail store
All of our beef is USDA inspected and properly aged for tenderness. After aging, our beef is cut, vacuum packed, and frozen to provide a top quality product whenever you want it. Sherwood Acres Beef can be purchased on this web site, by telephone, seasonally at various local Farmer's Markets, or by visiting "The World's Smallest Beef Shoppe" located at 215 Parker Drive in LaGrange, KY, Monday thru Friday from 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.
