Snack Sticks

Each Snack Stick is made from 90% lean beef and Berkshire Pork and packaged in 1.25 oz. portions. One customer testimonial states “These tasty treats were pretty near perfect. They had just the right amount of chew and the flavors were fantastic. I enjoyed each one, but I think their Original beef stick is my favorite. BBQ and Jalapeno are excellent as well. Are they salty? Of course they are….but they’re also delicious.”

Beef Jerky

Beef Jerky

Timber Ridge jerky is of the ground and formed variety. It’s chewy, but relatively moist in comparison to jerky that uses larger cuts. Timber Ridge currently features one delicious flavor: Audacious (Sweet & Spicy). The thinly formed strips are individually sealed in .75 oz packages. Coming soon…Whole Muscle All Beef Jerky! The saltiness of this jerky is on the high side, so you may find yourself focusing on enjoyment one piece at a time.


Summer Sausage

Packaged in 8 oz. sausages and made with our 90% lean beef and delicious Berkshire Pork, Timber Ridge produces this classic summer sausage. A happy customer writes, “The super lean beef yields a product very similar to the venison sausages I grew up eating in the Midwest. The texture is about the same as the snack sticks.” Available in both Original and Jalapeno flavors, this type of sausage is great with cheese and crackers.

About Us

Several years ago we sold a family owned commercial feedlot. The commercial feedlot was run to maximize cattle gains, optimize pen space, and keep cattle alive and performing well by using an aggressive antibiotic program. It was a daily exercise in crisis management! In 2006 we started Timber Ridge Cattle Co. and devoted a significant proportion of the operation to the production of a more healthy beef product both in terms of the cattle and the meat. Published studies at that time by KSU showed significant improvement in herd health and an increase in the Omega’3 fatty acids in the beef muscle by feeding flax-seed in the ration. We began implementing these feeding practices along with a strict no hormone, no antibiotic, and no feed additive(ionophores) policy. The results have been encouraging. ISU testing of our first flax-fed beef showed a 300% increase in Omega 3’s and a 5 – 1 Omega 6 to Omega 3 ratio.

Our Product

We choose the smoked meat process to deliver our high Omega-3 beef to the consumer because of its use of low heat. Exposure to high heat will covert healthy fats into trans-fats. To keep our product lean and to ensure exceptional quality, we take no steaks or roasts from our beef. The meat we use in our products is trimmed to 90% lean. The sticks and summer sausage contain no MSG or sodium nitrite. The products need no refrigeration so they can be safely enjoyed while camping, traveling, or in a packed lunch.

Our cattle are processed at a small family-owned federally inspected facility that handles on average 5-6 head per day. Compare that to the thousands per day processed at large commercial packing plants and you can see why we boast exceptional product cleanliness, safety, and reliability.

Key Benefits

Three tasty meats have pleased our breakfast appetites for centuries; sausage, bacon, and ham. At last, these three scrumptious breakfast flavors are now available in a convenient, ready-to-eat snack stick form. Timber Ridge has formulated these three traditional breakfast flavors and eagerly bring them to you in a delicious 85% lean, no-nitrite, high Omega 3, 70 calorie breakfast stick. What a convenient and healthy way to enjoy breakfast!

500% Increase In Omega 3

Samples of our beef were analyzed by Iowa State University Nutritional Physiology Labs and were found to contain over 500% more Omega-3 essential fatty acids and 25% less saturated fats than traditionally fed cattle.

Flax-fed Beef

In addition to the Kansas State University study, other flax-feeding trials include one at Oregon State University, in which dairy cows fed flaxseed produced more nutritious milk. Their milk contained increased levels of omega-3 fatty acids and lower levels of saturated fat, the study found. Animal science researchers in Europe are working with dairy cows to determine whether feeding flaxseed could improve digestive health and reduce their methane emissions. (Drovers Journal)

Excellent Omega 6 to Omega 3 Ratio

A well balanced Omega 6: Omega 3 ratio is important for good human cell functionality (http://www.gbhealthwatch.com/Science-Omega3-Omega6.ph). Our university test show a very healthy 4-1 Omega 6 to Omega 3 ratio in our beef. Typical traditionally fed beef averages around 18:1.

Enhanced Flavor and Tenderness

We add roughly 30% Berkshire pork to our product to enhance the tenderness and flavors of our sticks. Berkshire Pork is the oldest breed of pork in existence today, and raised for the meat’s distinctive color and marbling – two character traits that help to make our sticks tender and flavorful every time.

Healthy Beef

Kansas State University found reduced inflammation and less need for antibiotics in flax-fed cattle.

Needs No Refrigeration

Can be safely enjoyed while camping, traveling, or in a packed lunch

No MSG Or Sodium Nitrite

Our sticks contain no MSG and celery juice has been substituted for sodium nitrite
