Grass-Fed Dry Aged Black Angus Beef

Individual cuts are available at the farm store YEAR ROUND! Please come out and try our beef before making a commitment to freezer beef.

Why Should I Buy Local Grass-Fed Freezer Beef?

  • No Antibiotics, growth hormones, or any unnatural additives.
  • Less Total Fat! A 6oz steak can have the same amount of fat as a skinless chicken breast.
  • Less Calories!  A 6oz steak from a pasture raised cow can have 100 fewer calories than a 6oz steak from factory farmed animals.
  • More Omega-3’s! There are 2 to 4 TIMES the amount of these “good-fats” in pasture raised beef.
  • Higher amounts of Vitamin E which helps reduce the risk of heart disease and cancer!

Commonly Asked Questions

How much freezer space do I need?

For a ¼ of a cow you would need approximately 5-8 cubic feet of freezer space.

How much actual beef do I get from the cow?

The average cow will weigh about 1200lbs live weight. This will produce about 530lbs of usable processed meat. The exact amount will depend on the cuts that you choose when you have it processed.

How much does the meat cost?

We charge $5.05-$5.25/lb DRESSED HANGING WEIGHT plus processing fees which are paid directly to the processor. On average, your final cost will be about $10.00-$14.00/pound. Compare to buying a Rib-Eye steak at a grocery store for $11.99 on sale and that’s a factory farmed steak! Please remember that it depends on the final size of the steer and how you have it cut.

How much does the processing the meat cost?

The processing charge will vary – but expect to pay 80¢/pound hanging weight. An example is: hanging weight for 1/2 = 335 lbs x 80¢/pound = $268 processing plus the kill fee of $30 so a total of $298 for processing so your total cost would be $298 for processing + ($5.15/pound x 335lbs = $1725.25) for an overall total for 1/2 a steer $2123.25.  This, of course, will vary depending on the cuts requested but it does give you an idea of what 1/2 a steer will cost.  (Figure a little over 1/2 of that amount would be for ~1/4 of a steer).

I have NO IDEA what to get, can you help me?

Of course!  Starting in 2009 we changed things up a little.  If you order 1/4 of a steer, the cuts are pre-determined. If you are ordering 1/2 or whole, you will go over the cut sheet with us so we can make sure you get what you would like. We can help guide you to decide which cuts are best for you and your family.
