The National Cattleman's Beef Association came up with a fantastic slogan years ago when they started their "Beef. It's What's For Dinner." campaign. What they probably didn't expect is Chillicothe being home to one of the tastiest beef producers in the country. That's right! Sunnybank Farms. Don and Patty Shoemaker are the cattlemen (er, cattlepeople) behind the beef...all natural Angus beef, that is. I don't know your perspective on the natural part of it all, but to me and many others it makes a world of difference!
That's Don and Patty up there on the left. Don't forget to give them a big friendly hello wave! That woman at McDonald's using their free WiFi while drinking her McCafe' whatever it was did. Don't even ask me how I know. It was a little shy wave, but I saw it.
Now Don and Patty have been at the Market for quite some time. Every year I look forward to seeing them down on the end of the Market row. They are such a friendly couple and Patty is a sweetheart! Seeing their smiling faces really makes my Saturday morning.
This past Saturday I made it a point to pick up some of their ground beef so we could enjoy burgers on the grill this evening. Yum! In no way are they limited to ground beef either. They have mouth watering other parts too, like steaks and roasts. And then there's the vegetables...and honey...and berries... Why, you can get enough at their stand to make a complete meal! It's like one-stop shopping! Next time you're at the Chillicothe Farmer's Market, make it a point to stop by Sunnybank Farms and say hello to Don and Patty. You'll be glad you did.
So, there you have it folks...Sunnybank farms. Angus beef without the extra stuff. I highly suggest you give it a go if you haven't a. Then instead of asking, "Where's the beef?" You'll be joining me and many others in saying, "Sunnybank beef - it's what's for dinner!"
I'm the queen of our farm, although the animals haven't figured that out yet. My title is Head Chicken Wrangler, but most days I'm called Mom. Life is a comedy and I plan on documenting it.
