Total cost for a quarter beef is $4.75 per pound plus tax based on hanging weight of the beef. $300 Deposit due at time of order. A typical quarter beef will have a hanging weight of 130-170 lbs. and yield 90-110 lbs. of take home meat.
QUARTER BEEF will be custom cut to your specifications at a local processor/butcher shop. Processor will depend on month of processing, either Eickmans processing in Seward, IL (near Rockford) or Lake Geneva Country Meats in Lake Geneva, Wisconsin. You will be able to specify thickness of steaks, size or roasts, and portions that will go into ground, etc. Customer is responsible for processing costs (approximately $125 for quarter beef) in addition to the cost of the meat.
We usually take one trailer load of beeves into the processor every month of the year, so choose the month you want your beef processed. Typically the butcher will hang/age the beef for two weeks after slaughter to maximize tenderness before cutting and packaging it for you. You can pickup your beef at the processor at no additional charge, OR have us pick it up for you at the processor and store at the farm for an additional fee of $25. You would then be able to pickup your order at the farm store. For more information about custom orders and a link to sample cutting instructions, please visit our FAQ Page.
Total estimated cost: 150 lbs. hanging weight x $4.75/lb = $712 + $125 processing = $837 for ~100 lbs of take home meat, or $8.37 per pound.
Will require about 4 cubic feet of freezer space to store.
