Better animal care produces better meat
150 Years of History
Great beef starts with great breeding. The Shipley family has a long tradition of raising English breeds of cattle. W.E. Shipley pioneered Hereford farming in North Carolina, bringing the first registered stock to the state over 100 years ago.
Appalachian Grown, Dry Aged Beef
We ship pasture raised, dry aged steaks, ground beef and roasts from our farm in the North Carolina mountains to your home. We make it easy to buy healthy and delicious meats to feed your family. Taste the difference small family farming can make!
Shipley Farms Signature Beef is our unique Appalachian Grown, Dry Aged product, raised the way we’ve always done it— no steroids, no antibiotics, no feedlots, just hard work and great care for the land, the livestock, and the community.
All Shipley Farms Proper Meats products come from animals raised in the mountains and foothills of the Southern Appalachians. Our animals are raised and finished on pasture, grazing on forage and fed with a vegetarian feed supplement. Animals receive no steroids, added hormones, or other growth stimulants, and receive no antibiotics (except when medically necessary under the direction of a veterinarian).
