Frequently Asked Questions

  • Why should I buy bulk beef?
    When you buy bulk beef, you are saving money. Our beef averages out to be $8.50/ lb. While that may seem on the higher end for ground beef, that is very low for steaks and roasts (you will not find 100% grass fed filet mignons or ribeye's at the store.) While you are paying a higher price up front, you save overall all while supporting a local farm and knowing where your beef actually came from.
  • Why should I choose to buy your beef over the beef found at the grocery store?
    The beef you buy at the grocery store typically come from commercial cattle yards in the Midwest. To keep costs low, they typically raise Holstein males (the classic black and white cows), which is a dairy breed. You might also get the very old cows that are being culled once their milk slows down. That dairy breed and old age will result in low grade cuts of steaks, roasts, and ground beef. We raise Black Angus beef cattle, a breed that is known for producing high quality red meat. They are bought from a well maintained & clean, 100% grass fed Cow/ Calf operation. Once they are weaned, we bring them here to our farm and finished them on 100% grass (dry hay & fermented hay.) They are processed at optimal age of 2 years of age. When you buy from us, you are supporting a young local farming family and local agriculture. You will know your farmer and where your meat is actually coming from.
  • What are the benefits of 100% grass-fed beef?
    Grass- fed beef has significantly lower levels of saturated fat compared to grain-fed beef. In addition to being packed with B vitamins, grass-fed beef has been found to be higher in vitamins A, E, and other antioxidants compared to grain fed beef. Grass-fed beef is a good source of omega-3 fatty acids, which can reduce inflammation. A recent analysis found that grass fed beef has about twice as many omega-3s as a typical grain-fed steak.
  • How much fat is in your ground beef?
    Our ground beef is 90/10.
  • How much freezer space do I need?
    The rule of thumb is one cubic foot of freezer space for every 35–40 pounds of packaged meat. A quarter of beef will easily fit into a 5-7 cubic foot chest freezer.
  • What is the breakdown of cuts in a share?
    You will get 40-50% ground beef, 35% roasts, 25% steaks
  • How is the meat packaged?
    All meat will be vacuum sealed and frozen solid unless you communicate otherwise.
