We sell our beef based upon the live weight. A live steer that weighs between 800-1000 pounds can yield an estimated 50% of meat once it has been processed at the butcher. The meat cuts from these younger cattle are sometimes smaller but are generally more tender and flavorful than that of an older cow. Orders can be placed for a half or whole cow, depending on how much meat you would like to receive. Our beef is processed at a local, family owned and USDA inspected butcher shop. The butcher is a skilled professional who knows exactly how to give you the best cuts out of a side of beef. Immediately after cutting your beef order to your personal specifications, the beef is fresh-frozen with a clear vacuum sealed packaging process. By quickly sealing your packaged beef and freezing it; it has sealed in the flavor and texture, protected the meat from bacteria and extended the overall frozen shelf-life with the vacuum sealed packaging.
