Our beef is raised right here in the Midwest at local farms. It is corn fed and aged a minimum of 21 days, giving you mouth-watering flavor every time. We invite you to relax and enjoy yourselves at Pappy's Place and don't forget us for your next special occasion or simple get together with friends and family.
