Rosenkrans Farms


naturally fed beef

No antibiotics and no hormones given ever!

On an idyllic corner of the Finger Lakes along the banks of Lake Cayuga exists a micro-climate where the mist of the lake transforms the grass into an ideal grazing land full of plush, luscious feed for cattle. The intensity of flavor found in the grass makes it way into the flavor of the beef. This is where the incredible Rosenkrans cattle breed is raised.

Jeff Rosenkrans and his father before him have been raising cattle as a sideline to their primary business which is hay farming. All of the feed and forages, which are sold as far away as Kentucky and Florida, are sustainably raised on the Rosenkrans Farm.
