Our Story

Redbanks Custom Cuts (our butcher shop) was founded in 2012 by Paul Zimmerman. Paul had always enjoyed family butcher days, and after meeting a sales rep from Con Yeager Spice Co., his desire to learn new ways to process and make good meat products began. He soon had a small shop running as a sideline on his dairy farm. As the dairy industry struggled and the butcher shop thrived and expanded, it became a full-time family business, and the dairy was shut down.

During this transition, Russell and John entered the family. Amanda married Russell Wenger in 2013, and, in 2016, Marilyn and John Wenger were married. Having both grown up as farm kids, Russell and John shared a passion for farming. As Paul was busy butchering and the barns were empty, a vision began to develop.

Russell and John rented the farm and began Redbanks Beef Farm, LLC. In 2019 they harvested their first crops and bought their first herd of cattle. They began marketing their cattle as beef through the butcher shop in 2021.

At Redbanks, we value our Faith, Family, and Farm. We strive to honor God in our business dealings and stewardship of the land and cattle He places in our care. It is a privilege to work together as family, and many Redbanks customers have become like family as well.

You will not find fancy labels on our products such as "organic" or "all-natural". What you will find is friendly, helpful, and knowledgeable staff, and complete transparency about our farming practices, butchering process, and where your beef is born and raised. If you really want to know your food, get to know your farmer!
