Allen and Shawn Youngman, a Father and Son duo, are behind Youngman Farms, a pasture-raised, grain-finished cattle farm located in the drumlin hills of Wayne County, New York. The Youngmans have been dedicated to various types of farming over the years, including fruit, dairy, eggs, row crops and livestock. Both of Shawn’s grandparents grew up on farms and started their own, selling milk, eggs and fruit. Over the past 25 years, Shawn’s dad, Allen, took over running Youngman Farms —but it wasn’t until 10 years ago that beef became the cornerstone.
It was 30 years ago when Gary and Beverly Yamamoto saw a dream come to life. After years of visiting and developing a strong bond with Shogo Takeda, a longtime Wagyu legend in Japan, the American Takeda cattle herd, in its entirety, became the Yamamoto’s very own. With a ranch in Texas, the Yamamotos could now care for these beloved Wagyu in the rolling hills of Palestine. The Yamamotos also sell their herd’s prized genetics to other Wagyu ranchers across the country.
I'm so happy that you guys created this and that I found it. It is such an easy way to get amazing quality beef and the prices are great. Plus I'm trying some cuts that I never would have otherwise.
