George & Shirley Luebbering, Luebbering Shorthorns, started Tender N Tasty Beef, LLC 3+ years ago as a way to market our premium Shorthorn beef and Berkshire pork directly to the consumer. Our farm is located in Osage County and George is a 6th generation Osage County farmer. The Shorthorn breed was chosen because of its quality genetic markers for tenderness and marbling. We sell our products to local people, Columbia & Jefferson City farmer's markets, local restaurants and are working on expanding our market. We have a state inspected kitchen and farm kill/state approved meat processing plant on our farm. At this point, our meat is processed at local state and/or USDA processing plants. We also sell free-range eggs.
