We have purchased a new family business. We now own Shivers and Shakes in Andalusia, IL. Due to the time commitment of this new enterprise, we have the need to cut back. We still offer fully licensed and hormone free Hereford Beef and Hampshire Lamb. If you are interested in cuts or quarters, please call Jay at 3O9.738.O8II. Last year, we ran out of quarters so please call and I can put you on the list. I anticipate steers being ready around the end of May and throughout the summer. Lambs can be purchased whole or packaged. In the very near future, we plan to offer Big Oak Farm Beef and Lamb for retail sales at Shivers and Shakes.

Please continue to visit this page for updates along with the Shivers and Shakes web page along with the Shivers and Shakes Facebook Page!

We plan to continue to support the QC Farmers Market and hope you do as well. Stop down at Trinity Hospital in Moline on Saturday mornings and purchase from the only locally grown market in the Quad Cities.
