Reviews for: Walker Farm at Whortleberry Hill
Excellent beef, excellent animal

I absolutely love the beef from Walker Farm. It has a rich taste and is well-marbled. What I love even better than the beef is seeing the cows being treated so well. Joan treats each cow as the individual it is, knows their personalities and health histories. She has an excellent relationship with a local livestock veterinarian so that at the first sight of trouble (may it be an ankle that twisted when stepping on a rock or complication from calving), she can consult on the best course of action and summon a house call for the cow in question if need be. The cows receive affection from Joan and her visitors - pets, neck scratches, sometimes snuggles and serenades. Go for a visit, buy some meat, and visit the cows. It's well worth the trip.

I have been buying beef from Walker Farm for over 2 years and could not be more pleased. Joanie takes a great deal of time to help me choose my meat and understand the best cooking methods. She also has been very helpful in educating me about her farm and her livestock. Walker Farm beef is the most flavorful and tender I have ever had without being gamy or tough. What makes it even better is that I know her animals are treated with great respect for what they give to us.
A first for me

My first time purchasing my beef directly from the source. Oh my goodness. There is no comparison with other beef I have been eating. There is almost a buttery quality to the hamburger. It browned up nicely and broke apart like the days when I used to get it fresh ground from a corner butcher shop. And the taste is devine. I will be purchasing more for myself because I'm worth the best that my money can buy. And I'm sure a visit to the farm is in order this spring. Cows that taste this good deserve a pat on the head. And so don't the farmers who raise them with care love and good grass.
