We sell our beef shares at $4.50 lb hanging weight (this is the weight after skull, hide, guts, and hooves have been removed) plus processing and slaughter fees. The slaughter fee is $100-$125 per whole animal for on-site slaughter. This ensures that the animal will be quickly and, as humanely as possible, dispatched here on our farm. They do not experience the stress of being loaded onto a trailer and hauled to a slaughterhouse. Processing fees will vary depending on which cuts you choose. You will pay this fee directly to the processor when you pick up your share. Combined, your cost will vary but we have seen an average of $6 - $6.50 lb. This includes filet mignon, t-bones, rib eye steaks or rib roasts, cuts that sell for over $20 lb for grass fed and organic!
We use no hormones, no chemicals, and no antibiotics. Our cattle are 100% grass-fed and grass-finished. Our animals are also humanely raised and humanely harvested. This part is so very important to us. Our animals are humanely harvested - on site at our farm. They are never loaded onto a trailer or taken away from their home while they are alive. They are born here and they die here and we do everything we can to make that happen swiftly and painlessly - no fear, no stress hormones.
To reserve 1/4, 1/2, or whole share contact us to arrange a deposit. We will notify you when the butcher date has been scheduled and you then contact the butcher to decide your cut list. The butcher can help you with this. Customers who reserve whole or half shares can specify the cuts they would like. Those who reserve 1/4 share will receive a standard assortment of ground beef, steaks, and roasts. Once we know the hanging weight we will let you know how much you owe for your share of the animal and slaughter fee. Your order will be ready for pick-up in 2-3 weeks. You will pay the butcher directly all processing fees at the time of pick-up.
We are happy to answer any questions you may have about purchasing beef shares. At this time we do not ship.
