Yokeley Farms is a small, sustainably managed cattle farm located in the Town of Wallburg. We manage a herd consisting of Red Angus and Shorthorns. We added the influence of Shorthorn into our breeding program in order to produce a beef with a greater degree of marbling.
Locals know the quality of our beef, which is featured in Wallburg Diner's Backyard Burger. Nationally, we ranked 16th in the country at the American Royal Steak Contest in 2017.
All our beef comes from the steers that we have personally raised. This way, we are able to say without a doubt that our animals are raised with No Implants, No Antibiotics or Added Hormones.
At Yokeley Farms, we grow all the hay that is used in the supplemental feeding of our cows. We maintain Orchard Grass, Fescue and Forage Bermuda fields. Our pastures are sown with the addition of Oats, Ladino Clover, Turnip, Daikon Radish, Australian Winter Pea, and a Forage Rye. This forage blend supports the nutritional needs of our cows during the winter months. We use a rotational grazing practice on the farm to help ensure year-round grazing.
We offer beef that has been pasture-raised and supplemented with spent grains from Wise Man Brewing in Winston-Salem.
