Brothers Dan, Bill and Mark Wickerham and our families, own and operate End of the Ridge Farms near West Union, Ohio. End of the Ridge Farms began in 2001 as a small cow/calf operation using conventional methods. As we progressed we researched and experimented more and more. The more we learned the more we questioned the conventional practices. Passionate about conservation, we are constantly seeking to improve our operation from an environmental standpoint. Many of the conventional methods are not as beneficial for the environment as the unconventional. It is not just coincidental that what is good for the environment is also good for the animals and ultimately good for our health as well. Bill has Rheumatoid Arthritis, and is particularly tuned in to healthy, nutritious food. With all the effort we undergo to produce the highest quality beef we want to be able to share it with others.
Although we sell beef we are focused on soil health. Specifically, we are working to build carbon/organic matter in our soil. The better the soil, the better the forages, the better the livestock and the better for our health.
