Meet the Shanks

February 27, 2014

Jeff and Barrita Shanks take great pride in raising their cattle without growth hormones or antibiotics, and Jeff’s homegrown feed is free of pesticides and animal by-products. Jeff’s family has been on the land since 1942. He’s been in agriculture his whole life and started Seven Bridges about ten years ago to raise beef for the restaurant he owned, Crossroads Restaurant. Jeff later sold the restaurant and began growing a customer base on the farm.
