Ordering the old fashioned way! And most economical way too!
You can order your own 1/4, 1/2 or whole cow to be processed based on a cut sheet that will be provide to the butcher (once you make the order, we will send you a cut sheet and help you fill it out if needed). This way you get exactly the cuts you want (number of roasts vs. steaks, thickness of the steaks, size of packages, etc.) and the packaging you want (you can select between vaccum packed and paper wrapped). For the 1/4 beef, it will be a split 1/4, where half of the meat comes from the front half and the other half comes from the back half.
There is a $150 down payment for this option and once we know the weight of your cow we will bill you the remainder. All pricing includes delivery to our delivery regions. The cost breakdown is as follows:
The prices per pound in on a hanging weight basis. Each 1/4 cow will be between 150 - 175 lbs.
NOTE: You can specify if you would prefer a smaller or larger animal. Approximately 70% of the hanging weight will be translated into the meat you receive (for example, if the hanging weight of your 1/4 cow is 150 lbs you can expect approximately 105 lbs of meat). If you select to receive the bones (great for making broth!) and organs, the total weight you receive will be higher.
Once we receive your order we will be in touch with our custom cut sheet and to let you know when your order will be ready.
