Grass Fed Beef

We are currently taking orders for our Fall harvest season. To place your order please email me here.

 

Our beef is usually available from July through October which allows us to take advantage of the optimal nutritional profile of beef on freshest grass.  We recommend putting your order in with us well in advance to ensure you will get the meat you want, as quantities are limited and we are often sold out.

All our Devon cattle are born here on the farm. They take a full 30 months to reach maturity compared to the industry standard of 16 months. They are lovingly cared for and spend their whole lives with us, a part of our family. To see some videos of the herd, click here.   

 

We raise our cattle slowly and carefully on pasture and hay alone, as nature intended, to yield a full flavoured and well marbled meat. The beef is then dry aged for a minimum of 3 weeks distilling the true beef flavour and ensuring the most succulent taste experience. Slow food at its best. Our Grass Fed Beef is available by the quarter, half or by the mixed box. 

PURCHASING BEEF BY THE MIXED BOX - $495 for a 45lb box

Each 45 lb box contains an assortment of the following (weights are approximate):

A few pot roast style roasts 3-4 lbs each

An assortment of steaks including striploin, ribeye, sirloin steaks and tenderloin 

A few packages round steak, and/or sirloin tip steak suitable for slow braising 

A few pounds stewing beef

15-18 packages ground beef  in 1 lb packages 

If available brisket, shanks cut osso bucco style, meaty short ribs

PURCHASING BEEF BY THE QUARTER or HALF - $6 per pound hanging weight, includes butchering costs. Choosing a quarter or half gives you more say in the types of cuts you want. It also gives you the option of keeping the bones and organs. When purchasing beef by the quarter or half, the price is based on the hanging weight of the animal. This is the weight of the animal after slaughter and dressing but before it has been cut. The amount of meat this yields - which is the take home or boxed weight, is usually around 60% of hanging weight. This percentage varies depending on the individual animal and how it is butchered.  Our animals are usually in the range of 600-800 lbs hanging weight for a whole animal - or about 150-200 lb per quarter hanging weight. This could yield approximately 90-120 lbs cut and wrapped per quarter.
