We'll set up a time to call you, and help you with your butchering options using our cut sheets.

We'll let you know when your order is in, and you'll pay for the rest (see cost below). We'll arrange a pick-up time for you. Also, check out the sample weigh-ins and yields below, for an idea of what you might get!

Cost Per Pound

We charge by the hanging weight, not the finished weight (hanging weight is the weight of the carcass before it's been butchered and cleaned).

How Much Freezer Space Do I Need?

Freezer space is obviously dependent upon what cuts of meat you get. But, generally speaking, 1 cubic foot of freezer space fits about 20 to 25 lbs of meat.

*Savings will depend on how you have your beef butchered, and whether or not you elect to keep the bones. Bone-in steaks/roasts and keeping the bones and organs will generate maximum savings versus retail. Boneless steaks/roasts, additional grinding, and not keeping any of the bones will reduce the savings and may cost the same as buying the same cuts of beef retail.
