Limited number available. Reserve yours today!
The most economical way to include 100% grass-fed and finished beef as a part of your diet. We will have cattle ready to process approximately June - October. If you purchase a side of beef we will take your steer to the processor for you. You get to fill out the cut sheet that tells the processor some of your preferences for beef cuts. You will be able to keep bones and organs, if desired. Buying a side of beef means you are paying for the entire side. This is most valuable for those that want to keep all the parts of the animal that they can.
The beef will be Alabama State Certified processed, vacuum packed, and frozen. Beef cattle hang for approximately 7 days after slaughter. We will process beef from June through October to make sure the cattle are eating the best grass at time of slaughter. If you reserve a side we'll contact you about when you'd like to receive your beef. It can be picked up on farm or possibly delivered to your home if we are able to coordinate that.
Cost is $6.50/lb hanging weight. This price includes taking the cattle to the processor, the processor's fees, and picking the beef up from the processor. A side of beef is estimated to be around 200 - 300 lbs hanging. After the $100 deposit the balance for the side of beef is due at time of pick up. Total cost is estimated to be around $1,300 to $1,950 + sales tax, which is the hanging weight x $6.50/lb. If you prefer a larger or smaller side please let us know in the comments when you order. We will do our best to accommodate preferences.
