Raising Your Dinner is Our Way of Life

We believe flavorful meat starts with the spirit of the soil. Our Valley’s soil comes from heavy mountain rain, the lush growth of native grasses, and generations of family farmers. For over a hundred years men and women offered their blood, sweat, and tears to work in harmony with our rich land. Today we work just as tirelessly to protect our beautiful Valley vistas and natural resources.

We are committed to providing customers with beef that is: locally raised; environmentally friendly; humanely produced; fresh and delicious.

Our guiding philosophies – from raising animals humanely to protecting natural resources– ensure the meat you enjoy at dinner makes a positive contribution to our community. Thank you for supporting the Shenandoah Valley Beef Cooperative.
