Bulk Beef & Processing
Grass-fed beef is leaner and more nutrient dense than grain-fed beef.
Higher in antioxidants, omega 3's, vitamins, and conjugated linoleic acid (CLA) which has been tied to improved immunity and anti-inflammation benefits.
Lower in total fat, saturated fats, and cholesterol.
We refuse to use injections in our cattle such as antibiotics or hormones. We believe that providing a natural diet and a non-cruel/stress free environment is the best thing for our cattle, and the best thing for our families.
*Bulk beef currently not available to ship. Local pick-up only.
Beef carcass hangs for 10-16 days prior to processing. This is the time for you to contact the butcher with specifications. The beef will be ready around 2 weeks after kill date.
Current Processing Costs

The fee is reduced proportionally for half/quarter.
