Do you worry about what your family is eating, where the animal has come from, and how they were treated?
Our beef are pasture raised, with no added hormones. Our steers have access to grass and hay, along with grain supplement for healthy growth and excellent marbling. No steer is confined to a small pen, they are free to roam in large pastures where they can eat all of the grass and hay they desire. At no time are they put into lots and fed grain to boost their weight.Steers, at the time of butcher, will weigh approximately 1000 lbs. Our animals are never fed growth hormones or synthetic feeds. They are treated with antibiotics only when necessart, not as a routine part of their diet as is common in large feedlot operations.
I have never purchased beef from the farm, is it difficult?
You can purchase a whole, half, or quarter of beef. You will receive hamburger, round or cubed steaks, porterhouse steaks, rib eye steaks, sirloin steaks, short ribs, soup bones, and a variety of roasts. Your beef will be custom processed to your wishes. We charge the price based on live weight, or on the hoof. This means by the weight of the animal before he leaves our ranch to go to the butcher.
How is the meat butchered?
We use a local, inspected butcher who vacuum packs the cuts of meat. Once you order a whole, half, or quarter you will receive a form to complete for the custom processing of your beef. We will deliver the animal to the butcher and you can pick up once the meat has been processed. Delivery can also be arranged from the butcher to you.
What are the benefits of buying beef “off the farm”?
- There are no additives, preservatives, or any extra “junk” put into your meat. You know what you are eating and what the cow ate.
- The overall price is much cheaper than you can get at your local grocery store and the meat is a much higher quality.
- The animals are treated humanely and are well cared for with plenty of space and quality grass, hay and feed.
- No more wondering what you and your family are putting into your body.
If I buy “off the hoof” what cuts do I get and how much of each?
Typically, most families will choose to buy a half or quarter of a beef. If you order the entire half, you will have more options with how you would the meat cut. For example, if you would like more ground beef and less roasts, you can do that with a half of beef. If you order a quarter, you will be splitting a half with someone else and your beef will be processed with retail cuts.
How much freezer space do I need?

u should plan for at least 16-17 cubic feet of freezer space for a whole beef.
Can I pay with a credit card?
