Our grass fed beef cows produce delicious and extremely high quality beef.
They are raised on pasture in the warm weather and are fed very high quality, herbicide and pesticide free, grass/alfalfa hay in the winter and enjoy a very stress free life. We don’t spray our pastures with any pesticide or herbicide and use only natural methods for weed control including mowing, pulling weeds by hand and rotational grazing. No hormones or antibiotics are given to our cows. We are not “certified organic” but we use organic practices in our farming to provide a delicious all natural product.
Our current Beef price is $5.25/lb, priced by hanging carcass weight and sold by the whole, half or quarter cow. Price includes butchering & processing charges. Hanging carcass weight includes bone weight which accounts for approx 20-30% of the carcass weight. For example if you purchase a half carcass and the hanging weight is 500 lbs, the half carcass hanging weight is 250 lbs, minus approx 20-30% bone weight (50-75 lbs) and you will end up with about 175-200 lbs of packaged meat. You can request the butcher to save the bones for you and you can make bone broth, dog bones etc with them. You can also request the butcher to save and package organ meat for you at no additional charge.
Half a beef will probably fill a 7 cubic foot chest freezer.
When you purchase our beef by the whole or half carcass you get to choose the cuts you want, steak thickness, roast size, etc. It comes to you packaged, labeled and frozen, ready to go in your freezer. You pick it up directly from the butcher in Loveland Colorado. Click here to see helpful information about beef cuts
A note about purchasing a quarter carcass – You will get an even amount of meat from the entire half carcass. The butcher cuts the half carcass and splits the cuts evenly into two quarters. You are not guaranteed the option of choosing your cuts when purchasing a quarter. If you only need a small amount of meat and you are very particular about the cuts you want, I suggest finding a friend or family member to split the half carcass with and then you will have the freedom to choose the desired cuts between yourselves.
Our Lowline Angus cows are small and produce a hanging carcass weight of around 400-600 lbs. They have a much higher meat to bone ratio than a standard Angus which means more meat for you.
Interested in a sample amount or a smaller, more manageable variety pack? I may be able to accomodate these requests anytime of year – regardless of butcher dates. I usually have some ground beef or roasts available in small quantities to purchase for sample purposes.
