All Beef Jerky. Our tender jerky is cut into 1-2″ chips of lean flax fed beef and comes in a 2.5 oz. package. The beef are fed flax seed to increase the Omega-3’s in the meat. These deliciously VERY SPICY snacks are a great energy boost for hiking, bike rides, or any of your activities.
Flax seed with its high content of alpha linolenic acid has been called a modern miracle food. The beef used in our 90% lean Timber Ridge jerky is not only hormone and antibiotic free but is hand-fed a flax seed ration. Samples of our beef were analyzed by Iowa State University and were found to contain 5 times more Omega-3 essential fatty acids and 25% less saturated fats than the corn-fed control sample.
We chose 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 convert healthy fats into unhealthy trans-fats. In addition, our snack sticks and summer sausage contain no MSG or sodium nitrite and have only 60-70 calories per stick. The product needs no refrigeration so it can be safely enjoyed while camping, traveling or in a packed lunch. Notable effects of Omega-3’s in human diets include improved immunity, reduced risk of cardiovascular disease and anti-inflammatory relief for rheumatoid arthritis. It is important to us as a producer of food products that the beef and pork that we raise and sell not only appeals to the taste buds but is a benefit to our customer’s overall health and well being. Enjoy!

Several years ago Pete & Cindy Woltz 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 they started Timber Ridge Cattle Company 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.
