Ancient White Park ........... Animals

The centerpiece of our farm is the herd of Ancient White Park cattle. We are one of a half dozen farms in the US who raise this storied breed. There are currently under 500 breeding animals in the US. This breed is the oldest observed and recorded breed in the Western Hemisphere; the Roman Army first documented the breed in 39 AD. They were the sole property of the ancient kings of Britain dating from 900 to the early 20th century. King John 1st, upon eating his first loin of the Ancient White Park, drew his sword and knighted the dish, dubbing it ‘Sir Loin’. They were exported to the Bronx Zoo in the late 30′s to avoid annihilation in the coming blitz and have only been part of an active conservation program since the 1980′s. The beef is unlike any you’ve ever tasted. We raise the steers until they are ready, usually around 30 months and then have them dry aged for 4 to 6 weeks before having them cut and wrapped to the customers’ specifications.
