Apple Brandy Beef derives from cowherds consisting of Hereford and Angus cattle. For generations our family has selected specific genetics in an effort to produce a superior cow herd. The beef available for purchase is the product of these prestigious cow herds. We know the pedigree and complete history, including exact age, of each animal that goes into our beef program. On our farms we do NOT use synthetic hormones or antibiotics, except for medical necessity.
The majority of the year our cattle can be found on one of our family's farms in the foothills of Wilkes County. During the summer months when temperatures begin to rise, our cattle are moved to lush pastures along the Blue Ridge Parkway. The cattle love the cool mountain air and the native blue grass pastures. If you have traveled the parkway near Doughton Park you may have seen them in one of the several pastures outlined by the Parkway's signature split rail fences.
Apple Brandy Beef is raised on our third generation family farms in the foothills of western North Carolina. The same foothills made famous by moonshiners and bootleggers since the years of prohibition.
