Buying Custom Ordered Quarters, Halves & Whole Beefs
Our beef is dry aged 7-14 days, and all cuts are custom cut to your specifications. See the other beef pricing page on our website to see what cuts are available from each quarter. Hind Quarters are higher priced because they contain most of the steaks.
Hanging weight is the weight of the beef after the hide, entrails, feet, and head are removed, and ranges from 185lb to 260lb for one of our half beefs. Quarters might average around 110-130 lbs hanging weight.
Packaged weights will be approx 20% less than the hanging weight after excess fat, bone, and connective tissue are removed, or even less if you order many boneless cuts. If you order the bones for soup or your dogs, your packaged weight will be a much higher percentage of the hanging weight.
Whole, Halves, or Front Quarters are $4.00 per lb of hanging weight if the buyer pays the slaughter & processing bill and picks up the meat at the processing plant.
Hind Quarters are $5.00 per lb of hanging weight if the buyer pays the slaughter & processing bill and picks up the meat at the processing plant.
These fees are payable directly to us at the time the hanging weight is determined, either by check or by Paypal. The processing fees are paid directly to the processing plant at the time of pickup.
OR as a convienence for you we also offer this alternative, with your total cost being similar to the above pricing:
Whole, Halves, or Front Quarters are $5.00 / lb of hanging weight and we pay the slaughter & processing bill and pick up the meat and deliver to you. Hind Quarters are $6.00 / lb of hanging weight and we pay the slaughter & processing bill and pick up the meat and deliver to you.
If you decide to have us deliver it to you, we will set up an appointment.
