Black Angus Beef
Our Black Angus beef is processed and packaged with no additives or additional flavoring. Just pure flavor where the best qualities of high grade beef come to your table.
Our animals are purebred Angus bred specifically for their carcass traits of rib eye area, marbling and high grade.
Breeding registered Black Angus allows the producer to select those characteristics most important to the production of high quality beef.
Some of our animals in the beef program are bred through artificial insemination allowing for pre-selection of some of the best bulls in the world and others through natural service.
Yes. Our cows eat grasses and legumes (clover and alfalfa). Our animals are born and raised outside in as natural environment as can be provided. The cows are on pasture during the pasture season and are fed premium hay all winter. We have our hay tested in a forage analysis lab to ensure protein and RFV (Relative Feed Value) meet or exceed our quality standards. They always have high quality forage right in front of their noses.
Yes. As a general guide, 50 pounds of meat will fit in about 2.25 cu.ft. of cooler/freezer space. Meat from a side of our Angus beef will weigh roughly 190 – 240 pounds and meat from our whole Berkshire pork a will weigh roughly 120 – 150 pounds. The empty freezer compartment of a new, average-size, home refrigerator is about 4.8 cu.ft. Therefore, you will need a stand-alone freezer to allow for more storage space to keep the meat colder for long-term storage. Stand-alone freezers can maintain temperatures of -10°F or colder. We recommend an upright energy saver with a key lock to ensure the door is not left open and a seal always exist. We also recommend buying bigger than what you estimate. From our experience, we have found that once people try high quality local foods, they start buying all types of local foods.
Yes. We will deliver sides or wholes at the IRS mileage rate in effect at the time of delivery. We have a custom built freezer/trailerunit that ensures when it is delivered to your door step it is completely frozen. Or you can pick it up at the farm, within 7 days of notice, at no charge.
No… None. Our animals are born and raised without the use of antibiotics, synthetic hormones or any drugs whatsoever. They are strong, well fed and healthy. If we were to have a sick or injured animal, though, we would do whatever is necessary to save the animal including the use of antibiotics and medications. This would be noted prior to the sale of the meat.
Depending on the size of the animal and how you have it cut will affect the total cost. Same price for bone in or boneless cuts. If the hanging weight is 325 lbs for the side (average), your cost is $1,982.50 ($6.10 * 325) and results in 204 lbs of finished and packaged cuts in your freezer. That is based on boneless cuts and does not include the organs or bones. Purchasing a side is a good value and will last in your freezer for well over a year. Fresh as the day it was butchered and packaged.
Our 2016 price is $6.10 per lb hanging weight for 100% Grass Fed, Premium Angus Beef. This includes all processing, cutting, packaging and ready for your freezer. Packaging is frozen fresh, vacuumed sealed individually labeled pieces cut to your specifications. All USDA.
