The genetic traits we emphasize are more than tools for herd analysis, though; they are in fact the same characteristics that produce the perfectly marbled steaks, delicious roasts and juicy burgers we offer for sale to the public.  Click here to find out more about Sherwood beef.


The original Sherwood manor home was built in 1835 on land that was part of the original John Carter patent. It burned in 1900, but two period structures remain: a brick guest house or possibly slave quarter, and a rare round ice house. The current owners have placed a conservation easement on the property ensuring it will retain its rural, agricultural character in perpetuity.
