Beef Info and Prices


 

  We raise our heifer (girl) calves to be  certified organic cows in our milking herd.  We raise the bull calves (not certified organic) for beef.  Our steers thrive on fresh air, sunshine, grass and wholesome feed, with no routine antibiotics and no hormones to make them grow faster.  

 

Beef Pricing

We charge on what’s called the “hanging weight” of the animal. This is the weight of the carcass after slaughter, but before it is cut, trimmed and packaged. 

For beef, we charge $4.00/lb hanging weight for beef – that’s for quarters, halves and whole animal. This price INCLUDES the processing cost. If you buy a whole animal, we knock $75 off the total price  We appreciate a $100 deposit to hold your order.

Now every animal is a little different, but this chart shows what you can generally expect:
