Ordering Quarter, Half or Whole Farm Fresh Beef

What happens when we take your order for a quarter/half or whole beef?

When we take your order for a quarter/half or whole beef, we try to give you a date when it will go to the meat processor.  We do require a deposit of $150/quarter, $200/half, $300/whole when the order is placed. When the steer goes to the processor we will call you to get your instructions for how you want your beef cut. The beef will then dry-age in a climate controlled cooler for 30 days before being cut.  The reason it is dry aged, is that dry-aging helps tenderize the meat.

Cutting, packaging and freezing takes another 2-3 days, so your order will be ready for pickup about 5 weeks after the date the animal went to the processor.  We will pick up the meat at the processor and make arrangements to deliver the meat to you.

If you want to order a quarter please read this.  If you are interested in a half, or whole skip this paragraph: If you ordered a quarter, what you will receive is commonly called a “split half.”  Because, the cuts of meat in the front half differs dramatically from the back half, we evenly divide the cuts between the two to make it a fair offering.  This will somewhat limit how you can have your beef cut, as it is a compromise with the other customer, who will be sharing the half.  Again, this applies only to quarter orders.

 

If you ordered a half or whole beef, you won’t have to split the cuts. The below weights are all calculations based on averages.
