From Our Family
Passing on our Love of Agriculture
5th Generation Farmers
Rugenstein Family Farm is located in Canandaigua, New York, which is part of the beautiful Finger Lakes area. We are a 5th generation farm that raises Simmental cattle and we finish beef and pork for retail and custom sales. Here at Rugenstein Family Farm we have been using AI for the last 26 years selecting elite Simmental bulls. We have worked hard to grow our Simmental genetics over the years and produce quality genetics that will perform in the pasture, the show ring and in the feed lot. Being located in Canandaigua, the heart of the finger lakes, we use rotational grazing to optimize soil health and provide ample grazing for both our cow/calf operation and our finishing operation. At Rugenstein Family Farm Meats we raise our beef and pork on pastures and offer them free choice grain and hay to deliver the tenderness that makes our product so tasty.
From Our Farm to Your Freezer
Rugenstein Family Farm Meats sells locally grown beef and pork. Our animals are raised on pastures, free choice hay and supplemented with grain to achieve the marbling and tenderness that makes our beef and pork so delicious. We offer retail cuts and custom sides and halves. Our beef and pork is processed at a small, local butchering facility that is USDA inspected; providing a guarantee of cleanliness and safety as well as a handcrafted product.
Purebred Simmental Cattle
Here at Rugenstein Family Farm we enjoy our cattle and have been showing our cattle at local, state and national venues. We are very excited to get our next generation of showmen started showing. Our breeding program uses artificial insemination Simmental bulls paying particular attention to EPDs. We are very passionate that our cattle need to preform in the pasture, show ring and feedlot.
