The Shooks Family Difference
Shooks Farms is a family operated farm nestled in the beautiful countryside of northern Antrim County near Torch Lake. Our close proximity to Lake Michigan affords cool breezes necessary for the production of delicious fruit. Our farm currently owns slightly over 1100 acres, split between cattle, corn, hay, soybeans and cherry orchards.
On sight at any time you are likely to see over 350 head of Holstein beef cattle raised for top processors. We are also proud to provide our local fresh high-quality beef to area restaurants and Central Lake Public Schools.
During the summer months we are open for the general public to experience the pleasure of picking your own fresh cherries, including light sweets and black sweets as well as pie cherries. We hope you will take the time to look over our site and experience the Shooks Farms difference.

Melt 2 tablespoons of the butter over medium heat in a skillet. Add the onion and cook until brown. When the onion is brown turn off the burner temporarily so you won’t ignite your kitchen, then pour in the whiskey. As soon as the whiskey evaporates, turn the burner back on to medium and pour in the beef stock. Add salt and pepper. Now whisk in another tablespoon of butter. Allow the mixture to bubble for 30 seconds then reduce heat to low. Over low heat pour in the cream. Whisk, adding more cream if the mixture looks to thin. Allow to simmer on very low heat while you prepare the steaks. Stir occasionally. Melt the remaining two tablespoons of butter in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Salt and pepper both sides of the steaks, then add to the hot skillet. For medium rare, cook for 2 minutes on each side for a thin steak, or 3 to 4 minutes on each side for a thick steak. Place the steaks on plates and spoon the sauce over the steak. Serve with side dishes of your choice. Makes 2 servings.
