Quarter, Half or Whole Beef - reserve your locally raised beef by paying deposit
We offer what are called "split" quarters and halves. This means you will get an equal share of the front and hind portion of the animal, in other words, you'll be able to choose from all available cuts.
The top portion of each page of our website will tell you the seasons within which we are taking reservations. As the season of your reservation approaches, we will contact you with the date your order will ship from the farm (we try to give about a 3 week notice), and provide further details about invoicing, customer processing and pick-up.
Our average quarters weigh 200 lbs. This is called "hanging weight". If you ever saw "Rocky" pounding on the side of beef in that old boxing movie, that's hanging weight. When your order is processed or cut into pieces, on average there is a 30% yield loss in moisture, bone and fat. As a result, you will take home approximately 140 lbs. of beef.
$667 - Quarter

Wengers Meat & Ice in Carlisle does our processing. They charge $.80/lbs. for standard cut/vacuum wrap/freezing. This price is based on the "hanging weight", which averages 200 lbs., as explained above. So, there charge will be approximately $160.
