It's that time of year again, when we start thinking about stocking the freezers for the long winter ahead. Buying a quarter or half beef share is an economical and environmentally friendly way to fill up your freezer. It's healthier for you too!
Will I really Save Money Buying A Beef Share?
Beef has gotten out of control, price-wise. A grass-fed sirloin steak at Whole Foods can easily run $20.00/lb., and even if you’re fine with factory-farmed grocery store steak, you can still expect to pay $10.00/lb. or more. I guess you can buy Walmart meat for cheaper, but do you want to?
Our price is $9.00 per pound, processed, packaged, and delivered for each and every cut. While that might be a bit more than organic grass fed ground beef that you might find in the grocery store, it is a fraction of what you would pay for a ribeye, london broil and filet mignon. If you’re a steak or roast eater, buying a cow sha.re is absolutely worth the savings.
Why don’t you sell by hanging weight?
Because it is just too damn confusing.
Lots of farmers will charge price per "hanging weight", the weight of the animal just after it is slaughtered. This animal is then processed and about 20-40% is waste (or not for human consumption). So if you buy a quarter share that is 100 lbs hanging weight for $6/lb, what you get is 60 pounds finished cuts, ready for the freezer for about 10/lb. Confusing? Yes. That’s why when we sell by the processed, finished weight, include the processing fees and take the math out of it. $9/lb for ¼ cow, or about 90-100 pounds of packaged finished steaks, roast and ground beef.
If you choose to purchase a cow, they will be ready the third week of January. We can deliver to the capital district, or your can pick up here on the farm. You will receive 2 large boxes (4 cubic feet) of vaccuum sealed, frozen steaks and roasts, that will fill a traditional freezer,
