Frequently asked questions
What's in a quarter, half or whole beef order?
When you order a quarter beef you'll receive approximately 100-130 lbs of beef and need at least 10 cubic feet freezer space to accomodate your order. Great value to receive popular standards like steaks, roasts and burgers but also gives you some of the secret treasures like flank steaks, stew meat, brisket and short ribs. For example, half of your meat will be ground and stew, a quarter will be roasts (chuck, shoulder, rump, sirloin tip etc.) and a quarter will be steaks (sirloin, prime / rib, T-bone, filet mignon, tenderloin etc.)
Cuts may vary.
Half Beef: You'll receive approximately 220-250 lbs of beef and will require at least 20 cubic feet of freezer space. This could include 75-100 pounds of ground beef and the rest in cuts like
approximately 12 roasts, 14 t-bone steaks, 5 sirloin steaks, 5 sirloin tip steaks, 14 rib-eye steaks, and 6 round steaks. There are also short ribs, flank steak, stew meat and brisket.
Cuts may vary.
Whole Beef: You'll receive approximately 440-520 lbs of beef and will require at least 40 cubic feet (four deep freezers). You could estimate about 200 pounds of ground beef, and the other 220+ pounds are in retail cuts like steaks, roasts, stew beef, ribs, brisket, tenderloin, etc.
Is your beef 100% USDA Inspected?

What's grass-fed corn-finished mean?
We believe the most ideal way to raise beef is by allowing our cow-calf pairs to graze freely in over 2,000 acres of green pasture. This provides optimal time to build up strong health and nutrition before weaning. They are then fed home grown hay and corn feed. Corn-finished cattle produce the type of beef American consumers love and expect when buying fresh cuts: tasty, marbled meat with a smooth, consistent flavor.
Is your herd vaccinated and inspected regularly?
Yes. We vaccinate for all bovine diseases common to our area and we inspect our cattle daily for any signs of injury or illness. We take great pride in caring for our herd.
