Custom meat orders butchered to your specifications.

Peterson & Shaner is a family run farm incorporated in 1965. We specialize in raising no added hormone. antibiotic free black Angus beef. We sell freezer sides of beef which are butchered to the customer's specifications in our butcher shop. Our animals spend most of their lives in the pastures and are then finished on a mixture of hay, corn, fruit and grain for that added marbling. If you want premium beef and like to know where it came from, give us a call.

About the butcher

He began his career in meat cutting at Mopac meat packing plant where he worked for two years.  Carl worked for Genuardi Family Markets for nineteen years  as a meat cutter and meat department manager.  He continues to have a passion for butchering.  Carl is always ready to share tips on how to prepare a roast or cook a great steak. We are grateful to have someone with Carl 's skill and ability working in our shop.

Once you have made the decision to buy a side of beef,  contact us at our phone number or email.
