We offer you the freshness and taste of small farm quality. We practice a sustainable lifestyle and guarantee humane treatment of all our livestock. We never use hormones or antibiotics of any kind, and our pastures/hay fields are all pesticide and herbicide free.
Our cattle live a life of luxury in open fields and rolling meadows, and are 100% grass fed. We work with a small, trusted, local butcher where the beef is dry-aged and flash frozen to retain the tenderness and flavor. Quantities are limited, and while we would love to have what you want when you want it, please check availability on our website or allow 1 month lead time for special orders. We can provide whole, half, or quarter cattle.
The price for quarter, half, or whole beef is based on current market price and hanging weight with all processing fees included. According to the Penn State Cooperative Extension, hanging weight is approximately 58% of the live weight of the beef, and the final weight of meat will be approximately 65% of the hanging weight. For example, a 1,000-pound live animal will yield a hanging weight of approximately 580 pounds with the final weight of the meat coming in at around 377 pounds with a quarter of that weighing just over 94 pounds. It is important to remember that these calculations are approximate and specific to beef (pork, chicken, lamb, etc. are calculated differently), but may vary according to each individual animal.
A quarter beef may include a combination of some or all of the following cuts as available per each individual animal. The cuts are acquired equally from both front and hind quarters:
Recommended size for freezer storage for quarter beef: 4.5-7 cubic feet.

Grass fed beef contains less fat, more Omeaga 3’s, and fewer calories than other beef. It is leaner and will cook differently than traditional corn-fed beef. Check out this link for some helpful suggestions: 12 Tips for Cooking Grass Fed Beef
