We have beef available as wholes and halves.  If someone wants less than a whole animal, we will take the animal to the processor when we have the whole animal sold.  Normally, you can expect to receive about 1/3 of your meat in steaks, 1/3 in roasts, and 1/3 in ground beef.  However, each order will differ with your own personal desires.   You can expect that the amount of meat you will receive in pounds will be approximately 27-37 percent of the "on the hoof" weight depending on the animal, and how you have your meat cut up.  More ground beef will result in the lower percentages.

Baby beef - under 16 months of age.  This is an exceptionally tender, mild meat with hardly any fat at all.  Real gourmet beef. This beef must be special ordered.


Lean beef -  This is beef that is 18 months to 2 1/2 years of age. These animals will be lean, due to being pasture-raised, but they will have more marbling and they will have more poundage of meat per "on the hoof" weight.  There will still be very little fat in the skillet when you cook up the ground beef.

Lean and tender "baby" beef  

$2.65/pound on the hoof

Lean beef - a little more marbled

$2.15 /pound on the hoof

Prices are for "on the hoof" weight.  Prices do NOT include processing fees.  Please contact us for options.  A deposit is required on all wholesale orders of $350. If a split half is ordered, 30 cents per pound is added to the hoof weight cost.

When you are ready to order, contact us to reserve your beef. When your deposit is received your beef will be put on hold for you. We will give you an aproximate date that the beef will be taken to the butcher. We will contact you on the date your beef is at the butcher and let you know the exact weight. At that point we will send you an invoice with the total remaining balance due for your beef. We will also give you all of the information you need to contact the butcher regarding the processing of your beef. After you have paid the remaining balance, you will then need to contact the butcher to let them know how you want to have your beef processed. We recommend that you have the beef dry aged for 14 days. After the 14 days, the butcher will process your order and place it in the freezer for 24 hours. Your order will then be ready for you to pick up. You will pay the butcher for his fee when you pick up your beef.
