Phil & Sam AcMoody's [father & son] descendants have been in Girard Township since the mid 1800s. Phil's father Dale started Butternut Ridge Farms in 1964 and Phil joined him in the endeavor in 1972 after graduating from Michigan State University with a degree in Animal Husbandry. Sam has recently returned home to the farm to work and help launch the Butternut Ridge Beef brand. The Angus breed became an integral part for our cow herd in 1992 and has since become our foundation. From our family to yours, we hope you enjoy Angus beef at its best!
