Ordering Quarters, Halves, Whole Beef

What happens when we take your order for a quarter/half or whole beef?

When we take your order for a quarter/half or whole beef, we try to give you a date when it will go to the meat processor.  When the steer goes to the processor we will call you to get your instructions for how you want your beef cut. The beef will then dry-age in a climate controlled cooler for 7-14 days before being cut.  The reason it is dry aged, is that dry-aging helps tenderize the meat.  Cutting, packaging and freezing takes another 2-3 days, so your order will be ready for pickup about two weeks or so after the date the animal went to the processor.  You will pick up the meat at the processor, and at that time, we ask that you pay them for processing and also write a separate check to NewGrass Farm for the beef.

Decisions, decisions…Figure out how to have your beef order cut.  Read through our guide to selecting your cuts.

If you want to order a quarter please read this.  If you are interested in a half, or whole skip this paragraph:

If you ordered a quarter, what you will receive is commonly called a “split half.”  Because, the cuts of meat in the front half differs dramatically from the back half, we evenly divide the cuts between the two to make it a fair offering.  This will somewhat limit how you can have your beef cut, as it is a compromise with the other customer, who will be sharing the half.  Again, this applies only to quarter orders.  If you ordered a half or whole beef, you won’t have to split the cuts.

Our guarantee:

What happens if there is something wrong with your beef? It’s wonderful to have a freezer full of beef that you can feel good about eating, unless, of course that beef just doesn’t taste good.  Unfortunately, there is plenty of poor quality beef on the market, especially grass-fed beef.  The reality is that it takes a great deal of skill and the right genetics to finish cattle properly on grass alone.  Too many producers take short cuts, offer you a “cheap” price on their beef, but then don’t want to assume responsibility if their beef is just not up to par.  Yet, the last thing you want to do is spend hundreds of dollars on a large order of beef only to find that it tastes like shoe-leather, and the only thing you can do about it is throw it away.

Our pledge: If you are not satisfied with the quality of the beef you ordered from us, we will buy it back from you. 

What will your beef cost? 

The cost is $6.00/lb hanging weight.  This does not include processing, which runs about $.90 per pound.

Whole Beef $5.00 per hanging lb
Half Side of Beef $5.50 per hanging lb
Quarter Side of Beef $6.00 per hanging lb

 

Some definitions:

Live weight:  The weight of the cow before it has been altered in any way.

Hanging weight:  The hanging weight is the weight of the carcass, before it is processed into individual cuts.

Cut weight: Your cut weight is your take home weight of meat and will be about 25%-35% less than hanging weight depending on how you have the meat cut.

 

Average hanging weights:

Quarter:  120-160 lbs  = approximately $720-960 for the meat, and about $150 for the processing.

Half: 240-320 lbs  = approximately $1440-$1920 for the meat, and about $350 for the processing.

Whole:  480-640 lbs = approximately $2880-3840 for the meat, and about $500 for the processing.

What you will recieve with your order:

The table below gives approximate amounts of each cut that you will receive.  Your order may vary slightly from this, and you may opt for different cuts than these where it is possible.  For instance, you may prefer T-bone and Porterhouse steaks rather than NY strip and Tenderloin–did you know that a Porthouse steak is composed of a NY Strip on one side of the “t-bone” and tenderloin on the other?  You may also wish to have some cuts turned into ground beef, such as the brisket or short ribs.

    Thanksgiving Turkey

    0 out of 5
    $35.00

    We are offering Bourbon Red turkeys, fully processed and plucked.  Bourbon reds are an amazing tasting turkey that has been endorsed by Martha Stewart.  She said she won’t have anything else for Thanksgiving and that’s exactly what our customers say too.

     

    If you have never eaten a Heritage Turkey, now is a good opportunity to try one. Don’t be confused with “feed mill’ turkeys sold as a heritage turkeys..

    Properly raised Heritage Turkeys take 28 weeks to become a well proportioned and nutritious, table bird. Compared to an average of 16 weeks for the Broad Breasted Whites that dominate the stores, a properly balanced diet, is key to development. Our turkeys enjoy all the bugs and grasses they can find.

    For most people a turkey is a turkey, and a Heritage turkey is not really a specific breed, but is a term used from years ago, before the Broad Breasted Whites were developed for massive meat production. The large whites and bronze of today are never raised to maturity; never have a chance to range. Hence the meat texture tends to be very soft or even mushy; breast meat is usually so dry that most processing plants add a brine solution to give it a little more taste. Heritage Turkeys have a finer and a more dense meat, dark meat is actually reddish to maroon in color. The skin is thicker with a good chew. They are not inserted with a “brine solution to give them flavor”.

    Chicken

    0 out of 5
    $25.00

    This is a pastured-raised, non-vegetarian-fed, worm-eating, bug-scratching, no-soy, no-GMO, certified organic fed primal whole chicken. This bird was raised how chickens are meant to live: outside, on grass, with room to forage. This might very well be “The Best Chicken in the World”, but will surely be the best chicken you have ever had.

    The taste is absolutely out of this world. Expect more dark meat, slightly more thigh and slightly less breast than your average CAFO bird. This slow growing breed takes twice as long as the factory farm version, resulting in impressive, rich flavor and a nutritional profile that simply does not compare with the store-bought alternatives. Giblets not included.

    Save your bones! Whole chickens make amazing bone broth (recipe) and this is a great way to stretch your food dollar even further. Try one today!
