prices

We sell our beef by the quarter, half, or whole animal directly from our ranch throughout the year.  At this time we do not sell individual cuts.

Pricing

Our prices are based on the amount of finished beef you receive, with no hidden costs. The actual amount of beef that will go in your freezer.

Hanging weight prices are significantly cheaper but do not accurately reflect the amount of beef you will receive and do not include processing fees.

If you would prefer to pay hanging weight prices and processing for custom orders, just contact us. We are happy to accommodate that as well. It is usually around $4.50/lb plus processing.

*Please keep in mind that every animal is different, and there can be substantial variations in hanging weights depending on each individual animal and its harvest time.

Whole Beef $7.50/lb
Half of Beef $8.00/lb
Quarter of Beef $8.50/lb
  • We accept cash & check.
