Cooney Creek Farm is a 250 acre family farm
nestled in the hills of Lawrence County, Ohio. We are located in Wheelersburg, Ohio, 100 miles south of Columbus; 30 miles from Huntington, WV; 20 miles from Ashland, KY. The name comes from

Cooney Creek is the
outlet for 27,000 acres of National Forest land that borders us
on three sides. The land has been farmed since the early 1700s
to produce meat, dairy, fruit and crops for local consumption.
Corn and soybean, beef, pork and turkeys were the main products
until Jim and Cindy Yancy purchased the land in 1996 for Quarter
Horses. The years of creating more grassland
and developing mountain springs to supply stock have seen the operation
focus on holistic, sustainable practices.
We now have a few good
horses who graze along with our beef herd. Red Devon genetics have
been used since the first cow was AI’d
by Cindy and are the basis for our gentle, thrifty cattle. Our
herd is now Red Devon influenced and registered Red Devon. Each year we get closer
to our goal of year round grazing. Our stock thrive on natural
forages and are supplemented only with hay and minerals. Only emergent
care medicines are used to treat injury. We are not certified organic
but follow many organic practices. We do embrace sustainable and
holistic principles and have where selected as Outstanding NRCS
Cooperators of the year.
Processing is done at a USDA facility and beef
is dry aged for at least 14 days, cut to customer order, clear
vacuum-wrapped and quick frozen. We sell by the cut, halves and
whole beef.Beef consistently grades at high select
to low choice, providing wonderful eating. Discover for yourself
