Whole/Half/Quarter/Eighth Beef

We offer the option to purchase your beef in Eighths, Quarters, Halves, or a Whole. This beef is “grass-finished” which means the animal has been fattened & finished on grass or high quality grass & alfalfa hay. Supply is limited & you have the option to contact us to reserve your beef ahead of time. Our goal is to provide you with high standard, home grown, quality beef that we pride ourselves on. We know you will enjoy it as much as we do!

 

We have listened to our customer’s suggestions and have 1 flat fee to make things more straight forward (so don't worry about multiple payments and the confusing hanging weight, etc!). We have taken the average weight of all our harvested cows and set our prices based on that weight (to keep things fair).

The following lists will give you prices, and how much beef you can estimate to take home.

Ordering Steps:

 

  • Purchase your Beef through our online store Click Here

  • I will contact you promptly with upcoming butcher date & details (or if we have it in stock already- if you prefer not to deal with cutting instructions & want our standard cuts).

  • I will email you a cutting instruction information sheet (for 1/2 & Whole Beef) to help you through the butchering process (it will guide you step by step & is very straight forward!)

  • If you ordered a beef that was in stock, we will arrange a delivery date. Otherwise we will tell you when you can expect a call from our butcher to whom you will give your personal cutting instructions.

  • You have the choice to pick up your beef from the butcher shop, or we can deliver it to your doorstep!
