Grass-fed beef sales happen in November. We offer cutting options and sausage.
2023 beef Sales
We are once again approaching our annual beef sale. Our steers will be grazing all summer on our Glen Valley property and are scheduled for butchering early November.. This means the finished product will be ready for pickup around November 20 2023.
It is hard to gauge what the weights and costs will be as we do not have the final weights of the animals yet, but based on last year's values, here are some things to consider. The beef now sells for $7.00 per hanging pound. There is about 550 lbs per cow, 275 lb per side, and 135lbs per quarter. This puts a quarter cow at a cost of about 850-1050$, and a yield of about 90-110 lbs of packed meat. This is lots of meat, especially for small families, so some might consider splitting a quarter with another family after delivery.
A quarter animal consists of a variety of cuts from steaks and ribs, to roasts and ground meat. There will be cutting options for you to choose from in the fall such as what kind of steaks and roasts, and how much should be turned into ground meat. There are also options for several types of sausage and soup bones.
All of the meat is lean, grass-fed, and raised on a certified organic field.
