Each Beef Stick is made from 90% lean beef and packaged in 1.25 oz. portions.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.
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 offers three flavors: Original, Peppered and Audacious (Sweet & Spicy). The thinly formed strips are individually sealed in .75 oz packages. The saltiness of this jerky is awfully high. I still enjoyed the flavors (especially Audacious), but I couldn’t eat much at one time.
Packaged in 8 oz. sausages, Timber Ridge produces a classic summer sausage. 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 beef sticks. It slices easily, but still requires a bit of chew. Available in both Original and Jalapeno flavors, this type of sausage is great with cheese and crackers.
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.
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.
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!
We do our best each day to make healthy snacks, which we find makes happy customers.

My name’s Drew and I work at Hansen’s Dairy Outlet in Cedar Falls, IA. We sell your Original Snack Sticks. They’ve always been my go-to for snacking on-the-go. Recently I noticed our most recent shipment had a shorter, stouter look. After snacking on one I realized that I enjoyed it more than the previous taller, thinner ones! Maybe it’s just getting more to chew makes me think I’m eating more. Plus they’re just easier to carry around my pockets or bags.
Anyways, just thought I’d send some positive feedback to a great local business. Obviously I love the flavor of these sticks and the ingredients list doesn’t have a bunch of crap like other brands do. And I know that you guys are treating your cows with respect!
Keep it up!
First off want to say that my husband loves your sticks…..we always purchase on our weekly grocery trip. He makes sure he has plenty on hand. With his profession he is on the road daily….and loves these for a quick snack. We always love to support local Iowa products if we can.
