For 1/32nd Beef Share, plan for .6 cubic feet of freezer space.
Our cattle enjoy the opportunity to free range in a very spacious pasture. Each head has 10+ acres to graze on each and fed quality alfalfa. Order now to be included in our limited amount of shares available for mid-December 2019.
Americans eat an average 55.6 pounds of beef per person per year. Beef typically represents 38% of meat purchased, compared with chicken at 30% and pork 11%. If you are going to consume that much beef, shouldn't it be from a good source?
We currently offer local farm pick up or you may add delivery service within 200 miles of the farm. We do not ship our beef.
Not all of the cow makes it to the table. On average, a 1,000lb live steer hang weight is 61% of it's orginal weight. Approximately 390 lbs is eliminated by removal of blood, hide, head, hooves, viscera, lungs and heart. To increase the concentration and saturaton of the natural beef flavor as well as tenderization, the beef is dry aged for a minimum of 14 days. Thus, the longer it ages the more moisture loss occurs resulting in more flavorful and tender beef and less packaged weight in your freezer. Often supermarket beef is minimally aged to help increase profits of selling before they dry aging process removes the heavy moisture. Aging along with the fat and bone removed during the cutting account for >20% reduction in weight. Thus, an average yield is 400 pounds of high quality retail cuts (steaks, roasts, ground beef, stew beef, etc.) per cow to be divided amongst shares.
